  • Good, but no so good. Got it?

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    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)

    Cons:

    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.

    OtherThoughts:

    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.

    Bottomline:

    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.
