  • Cute on the office, but not USB 2.0

    Cute penguin! This is a smart device on your desk, the colleagues appreciate it.

    Having put USB keys in the head, it looks little more fun :)


    This hub is a *full-speed* only (12MB/s - 100mA), not high-speed (checked under linux with lshw, even with a power adapter).

    As a consequence, do not expect to use a device that requires higher data rate.


    There is "lot of" empty space in the penguin (all is relative); a possible hardware modification could consist in taking a true USB2.0 high-speed hub and putting it in the penguin, with some solderings to connect it to the existing epoxy.


    Just for the aspect this is worth the price.

    You have been warned: this is definitely not a high-speed USB hub; it will make work a USB key/disk but at 12MB/s instead of 480MB/s.
