3 out of 5 eggssome issues with it

Pros: When it works, it's a great product
If you have a laptop and you want 4 extra 2.0 usb port this might be the one you want to get

Cons: I don't know if this is my laptop's problem or the usb hub's problem. Sometimes my laptop doesn't recognize my usb. I have to keep pull it out and plug it back in again to make it work. If I get rid of usb and plug it in direct, it works just fine.
I am guessing this is issue with usb hub.

1 out of 5 eggsBurned out

5 out of 5 eggsUSB Hub

Pros: Works as they should. No problems so far. Loose 1 port then gain 4=net gain of 3.

Cons: Dongle cord is really, really short. Should have easily been an inch or so longer.

Other Thoughts: Had a couple of these for several months and still working OK. When you think about it though there really isn't anything to go wrong in the innards of these things so why should they ever fail?

2 out of 5 eggsNot as good as previous model

Pros: Nice look, cord storage and indicator light feature. Have used one of these older units for years now with no problems.

Cons: My previous hub like this one was a GUH285 model. This is a GUH285W6. Neither hub is listed on the iogear web site. My first, older, hub worked just fine with all devices. This later, W6 model, wouldn't see my Logitech Track Ball mouse on the end port or the first port (the furthest from the indicator light). All ports worked fine with other devices, mice, thumb drives etc. Contacted iogear and they had no clue what was going on. This is happening on an XP SP3 machine. Also the USB plug attached to the cord is quite large and when plugged into the computers usb port some devices are almost impossible to plug in beside this plug. Should be smaller.

Other Thoughts: The three ports on the iogear hub really should be further apart. There seems to be plenty of room on the hub to have spread apart those ports. Upon contacting iogear chat they were puzzled at the problem I was experiencing and were gracious enough to offer to start the RMA process but considering I can work around the problem I declined. To their credit they were gracious and did try to help.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. This is a plug and play hub with limited troubleshooting. Both the GUH285 and GUH285W6 are listed on the IOGEAR website http://www.iogear.com/product/GUH285/ http://www.iogear.com/product/GUH285W6/. I will forward your suggestions to the product manager. The problem you are describing could be directly related to the Logitech trackball you are using. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggs4 port

Pros: Bought one of these for the full price- $10 many moons ago and it's still going good with daily use. Just not intended to have thumb drives attached and disconnected real often..

Cons: Rather short dongle but not an issue if you just plug it in and a device or two and forget about it. Not powered but for $5 what can you expect.

Other Thoughts: F.G.S.-Just buy it and quit wasting time reading posts.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap, multiple went out

Pros: Small, compact

Cons: Not durable

Other Thoughts: I purchased 4 of these for my business computers August of 2012. At the time of this posting (June 2013) I have 1 that is still working. Buy at your own risk.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsNot what I needed

Pros: Compact, nice design

Cons: Does not route higher USB power input to additional ports

Other Thoughts: I guess if you just need a data hub this would be fine but I bought it to consolidate a charging station and even though I had 2.1A input, nothing would charge correctly w/ this hub. Not my Blackberry, legacy Razor, Sansa etc. Most charge fine connected to the 2.1A source individually (also a Nexus 7) but through the hub, nothing. Not really worth returning but I'm disappointed and need to find another option.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. The GUH285W6 is a non powered USB hub. To charge the cell phones you listed we would suggest a powered USB hub. These cell phones draw to much power to charge efficiently through a non powered hub. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
