Nice looking; smaller than appears on the photos; really useful stand; good data rate; and no heating on the hub itself or the a/c adapter (as mentioned on one of the reviews)
VERY VERY VERY poor build quality. It came with the front mounting loose. One of the back usb's simply folded and cracked off when i tried to connect a device on the first try. Had to disassemble the whole thing to take it off, witch was pretty easy due to the screwless-self-destructive design. Then i noticed that all of the five frontal USB's came bent had to disassemble again and align them.
The worst thing is that this thing is good apart from the build quality. Specially because of the external power source. I can now plug a 2.5HDD enclosure and a wifi adapter on just 1 usb port with no issues.
Too bad that it is now a 6-port USB Hub.
I bought it to mount on a HDTV PVR device, to record HD programing on a 2.5" enclosure (witch uses a lot of transfer rate) and connect a wifi adapter to the same PVR. So far, so good.
But I only reccomend it if they make it propperly. Cheap stuff can't mean poor-made stuff.
