Value for money – Stylish USB 2.0 Hub Bar 4-Port (Black) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Just a useful device, design is just what it should be; stylish. Works as espected, automatically detected and usb2.0. Small, metal housing. Looks better than many other hubs.
Cons:
The led is too bright, My USB port is powered all the time, so even if my computer is powered off, the led is on. Does not contain a power adapter, but that's no problem for this price. (The box says it's included.) My usb harddisk cannot spinup using this USB hub. Connecting the harddisk to the same USB port directly, the harddisk spin up. For usb harddisk use, a separate power supply would be advisable.
Other:
The powerconnector is on the other side as the usb connector, so if you want to use both connectors, it looks strange. It would be a better idea if both connectors were on one side.
Bottomline:
Just expect a nice USB hub, like any onther, so no powersupply, and bad support for high current USB devices, but with a better look!
