10 ports, how awesome can you get
can't beat the price
pretty solid build
works really well, once fixed
the film on the top with the logos on is kind of loose
the number 10 port is on the back, which is kind of weird
as said in numerous comments on similar hubs, AND THIS IS IMPORTANT! a diode was replaced with a 0 Ohm resistor, which allows current to be fed back into your pc/laptop/... and potentially fry parts of or your entire motherboard
however it can easily be fixed, you just open the case, and remove the resistor at D0, it's close to the power input, the little black rectangle with 0OJ on it, this can be done by just touching the solders on the resistor with a soldering iron, it'll come loose pretty easily
This however means that you will not be able to use it without the AC adapter, since the device can no longer be powered through USB, in short, you can leave the resistor and use it without the AC adapter or you can remove the resistor and use it with the AC adapter, but you cannot safely do both.
Once fixed, it's a good value and damn useful piece of computer hardware.
