  • More than enough

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    -Is really cheap

    -Very compact, makes a good use of space, and when you plug it on a laptop, it gives you the sensation that you finally could "upgrade" the amount of USB ports. Also, is very portable

    -No need of external power supply

    -Is plug & play

    Cons:

    -USB 1.1 only, so forget about connecting devices such as your webcam or a mouse; the transfer data speed drops down notoriously

    -Sometimes (dunno why) my O.S. doesn't recognize it when I plug it(same problem in XP and 7). Must unplug and plug again, and it's kinda annoying

    -Comes with a really short USB cable

    -Feels a little weak, so be careful when you are manipulating it

    OtherThoughts:

    What is it with the 4 green LED's? they're always on, that doesn't makes them useful at all, I guess that they're only decorative

    Bottomline:

    Really cheap gadget, very useful if you need to charge a lot of devices in a glance and also want to take it anywhere; no need of cables and other stuff to make it work, just plug it and you're done.

    But if you're looking for a hub where to connect fast data stuff (such as a webcam), forget about this one, it's only 1.1 and everything will run very slowly.
