A nice little hub - good for EEE PC Mods – High-Speed USB 4-Port Hub with Splitter Cable Reviews

posted by VK2HRO on 06/11/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Point form:
- Small
- Converts 1 port into 4
- Innards good for EEE PC Mods
- Led is full size 3mm, so can be removed for EEE Mods.
Cons:
- Control chip gets quite warm
- One port didnt work due to dry solder (I fixed it)
Other:
A perfect hub for modding EEE PC's - also good for laptop owners as the hub itself isnt hanging out of your usb port - the hub is in the box bit in the middle.
Bottomline:
A good value hub, but watch you dont end up with one with a non working port. At this price you can afford to buy a few (1 as redundant) so if you get a dodgy one, use the spare.
