    Works great!

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It's got lots of ports and seems to work fine. I have it pretty loaded with two webcams on usb extenders, a printer, usb speakers, a wireless mouse and wireless keyboard. The build quality seems pretty good. The usb cord is substantial.
    Cons:
    Not sure what the powered aspect of it really does. It works just the same when it's not plugged in to the power supply. Not re...

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Seven ports, good build quality, cables are long enough, it works as it should, enough power for all devices that i connected.
    Cons:
    It's not really con, but it has flat power plug, so if you are in the Europe or some other part of the world that use round pow...

    Awesome and affordable

    posted by karCrasche on 11/20/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    The unit is compact but has more than enough ports to accommodate everything one needs to power, and more. I have run several portable hard disks as well as a self powered hard drive. Everything works well and the device is well finished off.
    Cons:
    The only con is that it is only USB 2.0 and not USB 3.0, but that was known at the time of purchase.

    Great!

    posted by alexvermaat on 09/16/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works perfect, delivers more power to my two USB DVB-T (TV) sticks, since I use this hub they never failed on me again. And because of the placement of the five ports vertically I can use ALL ports! I have hooked up now: Two harddisks, Two DVB-T TV-sticks, ...
    Cons:
    Can't think of any. Maybe that the power adapter is a U.S. type and not European.

    Great hub, but a little expensive

    posted by luisgbm on 06/13/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    External power, great for devices that can't provide enough power for devices such as USB HDs and wi-fi dongles, such as the Raspberry Pi. It can even power the Raspberry Pi just from the USB port! Also great if you need more ports, it has lots of them!
    Cons:
    A bit expensive, but that's ok. You won't find anything that cheap in local stores, but for a DX product this is a little high.

    posted by a1wonder on 05/30/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Items came well packaged, compact size, externally powered, solid build (not going to be destroyed if knocked on the floor by cats), item exactly as descibed, easy to use, doesn't get overrally hot
    Cons:
    No real problems found to date, appears to be working well Only thing I would change is having a little longer of a power adapt...

    Works after months of use

    posted by darkcrow101 on 04/18/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Have been using this powered USB hub for several months now. Have 5 devices plugged in at a time and all function fine. Speed is good using external hard drives but there is slow down (obviously) when reading/writing to multiple devices at the same time...I...
    Cons:
    None really. Have never had a case of having to "re-plug" in any USB devices because of not being detected by the PC....

    Perfect device if you need more USB ports

    posted by Kreator99 on 04/15/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The device is pretty small but it works as expected, all seven ports can be used at the same time using only one of your computers port. Perfect to connect 'narrow' band devices as keyboard and mouse. It can connect hard drives but you need to take into acc...
    Cons:
    None, maybe the power adaptor could be somehow better but it is easy to replace for a better one.

    Only if you really need it

    posted by alvarogmj on 04/13/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Good for connecting several devices to an underpowered host, like a Raspberry Pi. One could even power the host device from this hub.
    Cons:
    Not so powerful, including a 2A adapter. Limited usefulness, using so many devices at the same time is not something that one d...

    Not the cheapest powered hub but worth the price

    posted by sharninder on 03/31/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Works as advertised. I use it with my raspberry pi.
    Cons:
    Build quality not very great and it is more expensive than some comparable products, but I hope the quality makes up for it.
