Not bad – Cool Robot Style USB 2.0 4-Port HUB - Silver + Black Reviews

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

Pros:
It's compact. It folds up nicely to take with my laptop. It works a little like a Transformer toy, so it's got some solid nerd cred. All the USB connectors seem to work.
Cons:
The male connector is upside down. I know that sounds odd for a USB but you end up needing to twist the cable 180 degrees to make it connect to your computer, which makes the hub a little unstable when standing on end. It's quite light and tips easily. I also wish the cable was a little longer.
Other:
It's good for 99% of my use. I have never needed all four connectors, so it works fine. If I did need all 4, I'd probably have to have it rest on its side.
Bottomline:
Works well for my ad hoc needs on my laptop.
