  • It's USB, but it ain't 2.0

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    -It's very cute.
    -You get more USB ports for you computer. No complaining there!
    -It looks so happy that you're plugging stuff into it. That's kinda creepy, but funny.

    Cons:

    This was a gift for a friend who is more tech savvy than myself so he gave me the rundown of what was less than satisfactory about this thing.
    -It is not USB 2.0 - it is 1.0.
    -The plastic is rigid and feels rubbery, but it's sturdy enough.
    -The build of the inner workings is not sturdy.

    OtherThoughts:

    My friend likes penguins so he's going to disassemble this USB hub and alter it to make it USB 2.0. It's like I gave him a gift that was also a project. Two for one, eh?

    Bottomline:

    If you're only going to using this to run USB gadgets(like USB humping dogs. Poor penguin...) this will work just fine. If you're wanting to transfer data though, best find yourself something that's USB 2.0.
