Pros:
simple to use, does the job, cheap. What you would expect from a USB hub, you get a decent speed with light loads which decreases with more devices.
Cons:
Flimsy plastic almost separates sometimes when inserting. Overall material not that high quality. Due to the design when using multiple devices it is only able to draw power and use the bandwidth of one usb port, this leads to degrading performance when using multiple devices.
Other:
If you have enough USB ports you don't need this, get some extension cables to access the ports at the back.
Bottomline:
Great priced USB hub for those who have a limited number of usb ports, not suitable for multiple high load devices, stick to the small stuff when using this.
