Pros:
This looks legit and nice. If I was to see this in a regular electronic store I would expect a way higher price. Also I figured out after hours of using it that there were no need for the AC adapter! (maybe it's only if the usb require more power)
Cons:
I have to say that the most USB ports seemed to me as they have been pushed or maybe bent, because I had to fix most of the ports to make it easier to input an usb. Another problem I had is that it suddenly started to smell from the AC power adapter, so I instantly removed it and that's when I noticed that you don't need it for easy use. Does come with those English (I guess) flat AC Adapter, luckily for me I had that flat to round adapter from Deal Extreme. I guess a bit longer cable would be nice.
Other:
Do not use the AC Adapter if it works well without, maybe it will start a fire (I don't know) Because the AC Adapter turned very hot. I didn't notice any difference of using that compared to the ones built in my PC.
Bottomline:
Recommended for anyone who needs more USB hubs. Very helpful, and if you don't need it right now, you will maybe get need for it some day.
