  • Okay Hub but not 2.0

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    It's a 4 slot USB hub. Very useful if you don't have an excess of USB slots on your PC or use a lot of USB peripherals.
    It's shaped like an octopus and the eyes roll around in it's little octopus head which is adorable.
    Plug and Play, my PC picked up on it right away.

    Cons:

    It's NOT 2.0 which sucks since it is advertised as such.
    The cord isn't very long which could be an issue if you need it to go across a room or something.
    It seems to work sporadically at times. Sometimes it just fails during a transfer and I have to take it out and plug it back in again.
    Sometimes it doesn't recognize the USB peripherals you're connecting to it and it needs to be plugged in and out repeatedly to get it to work.
    The octopus head is pretty large and if you're trying to fit it behind a desk or your tower or something you may have issues.

    OtherThoughts:

    It's a USB hub and it's cheap. It's not 2.0 as advertised and doesn't work 100% all the time but other than that it does its job.

    Bottomline:

    Cute but semi-functional. :)
