4 out of 5 eggsPretty good for price

Pros: Self-powered to prevent overloading the mobo circuit (last hub did that, especially using a long extension cable that draws more current form resistance) so the cable to computer is just a data cable, not a power cable, but at least it is also computer powered as well which I guess is a standard of USB not the hub.

7-ports.
Cheap.
Stand.
Kinda cool design.

Cons: Stand, as said by other reviewers, could have been weighted or at least had some rubber feet added. Not only does it topple over easy (easily solution is to have cables in back go STRAIGHT back in same direction), but it slides around too easy as well. There are some other possible ways to connect the hub (horizontal) but it's not centered enough to make it viable either; the more centered way to attach doesn't work or not easy anyways and I didn't want to damage the tabs. Also, the "tower" way to attach was confusing since it doesn't actually sit all the way down in the base. You have to lift it up a little before sliding it in or look at the grove/tabs and line them up as you slide it in.

Other Thoughts: With enough effort, you could weight the base and possibly add grip to it or add Velcro or something like that, or simply position the wires perfectly to prevent it sliding around or toppling over. Not a huge deal, but with a stand you should expect a bit more than a slab of plastic that doesn't really help all that much. I suppose you can attach it to a wall or something as there is something on the side that looks like it can do it somehow, but there were no instructions include so any solution of your own (glue base to wall and slide it in one of the two ways I got to work) is probably better or the same as the manual would give.

Only one egg off for that, but I haven't tried putting heavy-duty things on it yet to push it's limits. A bit scared to even with it's own power supply.

3 out of 5 eggsdecent. needs more weight to it.

Pros: 7 usb ports, cheap.

Cons: too light... i have 3 cables plugged in the back and it wants to tip over... would have been better with a weighted bottom, red LED is weird and stays on

Other Thoughts: if the bottom would have had more weight to it, a neater looking LED and the ugly side thing sticking out the side taken off this would have been an awesome product.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Hub

Pros: Cheap and looks nice. Works as advertised. I like having the two ports on the front for quick access for thumb drives and mobile devices.

Cons: Packaging is cheap too, oh well.

Other Thoughts: Smaller than I anticipated, but the simple little stand really does keep it stable.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks good

Pros: Nice design. Fits perfectly on desk. Not obnoxiously big. Two ports in front are nice.

Cons: Red power LED Light stays on at all times.

Other Thoughts: Besides for the red LED light staying on this is a great hub for the price. It replaced a Kensington 7 port USB hub that had issues connecting/disconnecting.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst Class Act - Perfect

Pros: This powered usb hub is perfect and has a perfeshional look. Nice stand and plenty of ports. Nice color, nice look and sturdy. The base connects to the top tower. Two 2.0 USB ports in the fronr, five in the back, pluss the DC power. The PC to HUB USB cable also connects in the back of the hub.

Cons: None. Get a chain to lock it down or someone might want to steal it, because it's so nice.

Other Thoughts: Hub has one red LED for a power on indicator, but doesn't have a flashing LED to indicate read / write access, but thats ok, my flash thumb drive does so that works for me. This is my second one I bought, the first one was so nice that someone stold it off my office desk after working hours.
