This really is USB 2.0 – Quality USB 2.0 4-Port Hub (24CM-Cable) Reviews

Pros:
Unlike many other USB hubs advertised as 2.0 on DX, this actually is one. I don't have any devices lying around that could get anywhere near the theoretical 2.0 transfer limit, but this definitely registers as a 2.0 device and manages speeds above the USB 1.1 spec. The snap-together connector sleeve design helps keep your desk neat, yet allows you to separate the connectors to plug in devices that wouldn't fit together on normal tightly spaced hub. The connector sleeves are made of sturdy, non-fragile plastic and are well molded. Overall build quality is good.
Cons:
The cables are very thin and flexible, so they're probably not shielded. There's no option for external power source, but as the wiring on powered hubs on DX seems to always be pretty dire, that can be construed as a good thing.
Other:
If you want to have this on your desk, get an extension cable too.
Bottomline:
The best USB hub on DX I've found thus far.
