1 out of 5 eggsTerrible

Pros: It's small and looks nice.

Cons: For a powered hub, this thing is worthless. Devices like smartphones can take over two days to fully charge, especially when my laptop isn't connected to it.

5 out of 5 eggsDependable and durable

Pros: This hub is well-constructed and durable; unlike most USB hubs, this one does not break apart when I accidentally twist cables as I unplug them. Its freezing and failure rates are very low.

It works correctly, both bus-powered and wall-powered, at the end of a 50-foot USB extension cable while five devices are constantly plugged in. When wall-powered it will charge devices while the computer is off, though *only* if they are connected prior to turning the computer off.

The fact that this hub can be mounted in nearly any direction is a nice bonus. It even works well when attached vertically to my LCD's stand with Velcro.

Cons: Having to use a USB Mini-B connector for the computer-side cable is annoying, though understandable, given the device's size.

The LED is very bright.

Other Thoughts: I liked this hub enough that I bought a spare. The price premium is worth the added stability and longevity.

Use the included foam sticker thing to help hold the hub in place if you find that it slides out from its base too easily.

5 out of 5 eggsUseful Hub

Pros: Hooked up everything to it. No problems. I use the Blue LED light as a night light. I wish there was an off switch to the light or the hub itself. Thankfully, the A/C adapter isn't huge like my Belkin USB 1.0 one.

Cons: The Blue LED light is intense...but after several years of being on for 24/7, I think it is starting to dim.

Other Thoughts: Is a USB 3.0 version of this coming? I want the LED to come in white too.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This HUB is great. It is solid construction and the mounting plate is a good feature. I do not have the plate mounted and with 6 cables connected it still weighs enough to not move around.

I recommend it.

Cons: None.

2 out of 5 eggsNice while it lasted

Pros: -Good functionality
-Ease of use
-Number of ports
-Mount

Cons: -Not the best internal construction

Other Thoughts: I loved and used this thing every day until this morning when the AC socket fell out in several pieces when I unplugged it. Didn't tug on it or anything; just sorta came apart.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Quality Hub

Pros: - Small yet very flexible
- VERY good construction (Heavy extruded aluminum, very durable)
- Nice mounting system (on my last desk, it was mounted on side via included bracket, and is spuer easy to move in and out of that position. Right now I have it just sitting on the desk since it's my most trusted hub and I connect and disconnect a lot.
- Very good USB socket placement

Cons: - Expensive relative to other models
- Power supply (wall wart) can run hot
- I echo what some other reviewers have said, that it would be nice to have an indicator LED vs. the too-bright, always-on blue LED. As is, it really only tells you that the PS is plugged in and working. That's good -- but at this price I'd expect a bit more functionality. This combined with it's price is why it lost one egg -- if I could, I'd give it 4.5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: I've owned this model for 3+ years now, and it's been the workhorse of my system after 3 other hubs from other manufacturers have come and gone (mostly by dying or just being too flaky).
I use it with 4 external drives, 2 that rely on the hub's power; my high-speed CompactFlash card reader, my iPod/iPhone cable, and an extension USB cable for flash drives/other misc USB needs.
In fact, I'm up here looking for a replacement for the Kensington hub that finally dies after the same 3+ years (not sure if it's the PS or the hub itself, but just went poof last week). I will either buy this one again, or take a chance on one of the high-rated Rosewill units -- I've used many other Rosewill products over the last year and have come to trust their quality, reliability and value. But if those options weren't available, or if this unit was on sale, I'd get another one in a heartbeat. If the 'Egg is running a special on this when you happen to be looking, BUY IT. You wont be sorry!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Hub, But Short On Features

Pros: There's a lot to like about this hub, and there are some areas that could use improvement if, like ours, your expectations are high. This thing is compact, works powered or unpowered, it's fast, has a heavy base (with screw holes already drilled - base includes a friction strip to keep hub from sliding loose - base doubles as heat sink). It is behaving as an ideal hub. If mounted to the wall, and oriented in a vertical fashion all connections to the hub are horizontal so gravity isn't pulling any Wire out of the hub. By design or by accident this is a good thing.

Cons: Minor points in case the manufacturer, or their competition want some feedback... 1) the power connector is held in by very little friction, and it can come loose too easily. A clip style connector for the power cable would be appropriate. 2) the power light is on no matter whether the power cable is connected, or the USB host is powering the hub. A different color LED based on power source would be desirable. See? Nothing major. These are still disappointments and annoyances, and addressing them would put this unit into an elite class.

Other Thoughts: Our anticipation for this hub is for it to be a highly reliable, dependable unit that we want to deploy in an environment where failures are expensive to deal with. Our application for it is a semi-private office, and is somewhat "hostile" since the users are not PC savvy. HQ is nowhere near, so there is nobody on site that is technical. We depend on remote troubleshooting aids such as lights for each USB port, including the up-link port. Little tiny LEDs for each port, viewable from the same angle as the power light would be a wonderful addition - if they actually indicated anything port specific. With these lights we can have conversations with on-site people who can see fine, and can tell us what they see if its simple to communicate. FYI manufacturers.

4 out of 5 eggsRugged, flexible

Pros: Small, attractive, well powered, has permanent mount.

Cons: I wish the 'in' jack was a full size B.

Other Thoughts: This is exactly what I was looking for to create a "poor man's docking station" for my notebook. Once mounted with the included screws, it stays put, and allows me to connect a backup drive, a USB audio interface, a UPS, and a MIDI adapter on the back side, and a Bluetooth dongle on the front -- still leaving 2 slots for flash drives, etc.

Installation was simple and uneventful in WinXP.

The blue LED on top gives power and connection indication without being in-your-face bright.

User tip: Like most 7-slot USB hubs, this one is really two cascaded 4x1 hubs. The slots are arranged as --

- Hub 1 (primary) is the leftmost front slot, the 2 leftmost rear slots, and the cascade device.

- Hub 2 (secondary/cascade) is the rightmost 2 slots, both front and back.

This might be handy in arranging your bus-powered devices, as USB's 500mA-per-hub rule for power still applies here.

5 out of 5 eggsWokrs great over long USB extensions

Pros: Most importantly - works over long USB extension cables (I have 30FT in wall USB extension cable). I had tried Rosewill hub and that did not work over the extension.

Ports on front and back. Useful to route permanent devices through back, while leave front port for bluetooth or other wireless transmitters and USB thumb drives.

Looks nice and not obtrusive, has blue light on top, the mountability option is great, especially since USB hubs are small and light and can easily tilt when many cables are plugged in.

Cons: None.
