Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
- Plug'n Play. - Connect all your interface devices to only 1 port. - The white hub looks fine next to the white Macbook ;)
Cons:
- The connectors could be better, they are not exactly as the computer ones, the computer ones are smoother when you plug the device. But it is not very important.
Other:
- For energy power and data bandwidth, remember that you have 4 ports, but from the same USB root, so I don't recommend to connect other than interface devices (mouse, keyboard, maybe drawing tablets, etc.), pendrives (requires loe power), or devices with its own power supply connected to the AC.
Bottomline:
I have tested with 3 pendrives at the same time and there is no energy problem. Used on Windows Vista and Mac OS X 10.6, working fine.
