Solid product for me

John M., Newegg
23 May 2014
  • Summary: I have been using one of these over the past year, pulling it in and out of a laptop case and it continues to work well. It works with mice and USB enclosures. I just bought a second one due to its solid performance.
  • Pros: Small form factor, powered hub. Transformer has long lead. If you want a small form factor, powered hub that fits easily into a laptop case, this is it.
  • Cons: None for me.

Works fine here

James M., Newegg
26 December 2008
  • Pros: This little guy has been working just fine for me, in multiple studios, for over a year. Mine do not run hot. Mine are not even warm to the touch. I usually don't write reviews, but the reviews are pretty negative here, and this little thing has been great for my purposes.
  • Cons: Love to see a 13 port version, or more???

For lack of a better explanation... broke my computer.

Daniel B., Newegg
5 December 2008
  • Summary: I've never had such a tiny device, and one that *should* be fairly benign) wreak so much havoc upon a computer. I wish I could give it a "0" rating.
  • Pros: It didn't set my house on fire.
  • Cons: Ever since I plugged this device in, WinXP is super-wonky. Now my secondary IDE won't load if there are any USB devices plugged in anywhere (even with this USB hub far, far away in a land-fill somewhere).

Don't do it

Jeffrey J., Newegg
28 January 2008
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: As the other reviews said it ran very hot from the beginning. It would also despite being externally powered not provide enough power to much of anything connected let alone something like a hard drive. It would also constantly drop connections with the devices connected. It also my my WinXP system very unstable and would BSOD.

4 ports failed upon arrival

Anonymous, Newegg
23 July 2006
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: 4 Ports failed upon arrival. Only 3 ports worked. Rather disappointed. I ended up not using it at all because I had my old 4 port hub, waited for 6 months to call Trendnet for an exchange (too bz with life to go thru this process). Trendnet's customer service was okay. I had to call 3-4 times to get the RMA number. They refused to pay the 1st return shipping fee. If it fails the second time, they promised to pay the 2nd return shipping fee. The new product I got so fa...

Typica USB Hub but with power

  • Summary: The power adapter is nice as it ads additional functionality. If you have a lot of devices, a HUB can come in handy. This one adds 7 ports. Plenty of room for growth.

  • Summary: Great product that easily increases the number of available USB 2.0 ports. Small size fits in tight spaces and doesn't clutter up the desk.

User Review

  • Pros: I thought the low price was a Pro - wrong.
  • Cons: This hub ran VERY hot from the get-go, with or without the power supply attached. The first month there were occasional problems with attached devices. After a month XP began to sound like a pinball machine with constant errors. Replaced with hub from different mfr & problems went away. (I never did get my rebate either.)

Great things come in small packages

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Does get hot for some reason, no noticeable changes when hot, other than that no complaints.
  • Pros: It is a great 7 port USB2 hub that is very compact. Perfect size for laptops and people on the go. Even comes with a power supply if you need to have a powered hub beyond what the pc offer.
  • Cons: None
