5 out of 5 eggs5 years later, STILL working great !

Pros: It was inexpensive. It has gotten a LOT of use with constant insertions/removals of numerous FlashDrives and SDHC card readers, sometimes 6+ times per day. This Feb 11th is 5 years of daily use, often 6+ hours/day. It does not light up the single red power LED unless there is a USB device plugged in. The green LED "I am connected" indicator just above each USB port also work like they are supposed to, and they turn off when the FD is software ejected under WinXP or Xubuntu 13.01. An external 60GB HDD plugged in to it works AOK.
Besides being incredibly useful and convenient, it was money very well spent.

Cons: Connecting the 5V power, internal rear USB data terminal to the MoBo or internal PCI USB port and installing the 4 port USB unit into a 5.25" front bay took some careful work, AS EXPECTED. That can be a challenge for novices, especially if they are withoput a reasonably knowledgeable computer friend.

Other Thoughts: I plugged the unit's internal rear USB main data cable into the single internal USB of a 4+1 USB PCI card, also from NewEgg that was ordered at the same time. This 4 USB port front bay unit has totally spoiled me when I use other computers with usually only TWO USB ports that are often inconveiently located down low at the base of the PC or angled steeply
under a cosmetic cover like my spare 2003 year PC, a Dell Dimension 4550.

When I upgrade to a newer USB 3.0 MoBo I will definitely optain a similar front bay 3.0 device.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Design, works awesome!

Pros: Installed this in place of the 1.44MB floppy drive that is no longer used on a old steel beige tower from the late 1990s which was lacking USB ports. Works perfect no problems with the Zotac mATX motherboard in my server.

No longer having to plug USB devices at rear of computer or having to use a USB extension cable.

Cons: NONE

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome device

Pros: Very flexible design that allows the addition of a power supply should the connected USB devices call for more power. It was easy to mount and looks great on the desk.

Cons: No included hardware to surface mount onto a desktop. Lights can be distracting.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product

Pros: Good When it Work....

- Work on Win 7
- Work on Win 8
- Work on XP

Cons: No cd driver or online no driver.

2x Time the device does not work on me when i plug the usb in any slot. And each time it goes bad I have reformated the Windows. Then it work. But after use like 2-3 months it doesn't even recognize usb anymore.

However the 3rd time I reformat and install windows 7,8. Everything work great so.... yeah. Good luck.

I would have give it 3 egg but.. I give it 4 because it working now..

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fits where the floppy drive used to be.

Cons: Doesn't draw enough power to charge my iphone even though I plugged in everything. Also the a/c hole plugs in loosely.

Other Thoughts: I guess it will only work with flash drives, mouse and keyboard. Haven't tested that yet but it sucks that a window pops up and tells me this drive doesn't have enough power to load my iphone. Will probably need a a/c adapter or something plugged to it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood product

Pros: Versatile - can be installed inside case in floppy drive slot or sit externally. Internally it uses the floppy drive 4-pin power adapter. I've bought, used, and re-sold almost a dozen of these now without a single dead port. Oldest one in use was installed a year and a half ago and client loves it. Has indicator lights to designate when a device is detected.

Cons: Internal installation still routes USB to a USB port so I have to remove one of the metal PCI bay covers and route a cable out of the case, I would give 5 eggs if it came with an adapter to connect to internal USB headers.

1 out of 5 eggsGet another one

Pros: It can be a Hub if nothing requires power.

Cons: Not reliable for having Storage attached to it. Even a small usb flash drive will exceed its power. The included USB power included does not do a darn thing!
The factor is flimsy.

Other Thoughts: I have tried it on several computers to see if maybe some of them were not giving the device enough power but nothing -- connecting more than one storage device to it will stall the device.

The solution possibly can be an external adapter to provide you the power.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear customer,

Please contact our technical support and provide the answers to the following questions:
1. What type of USB flash drive do you own? Is it a USB 3.0 or USB 2.0? What is the capacity of the drive?
2. How about other USB devices connected to the HUB? For example, will a USB mouse and keyboard work reliabley?

4 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm!

Pros: Bought this for my mom's Vaio... it only has 2 USB ports. It does what it is supposed to with no problems in 9 months of use.

Cons: It's a little light... they could have put some super sticky feet on it or something. It's definitely a 2-hander when you are plugging in.

Other Thoughts: Mom never paid me back... the nerve of some people!

5 out of 5 eggsFlawless internal install

Pros: It was extremely easy to install in internal mode. Worked immediately. No drivers.

Cons: Shipping with a USB a-b cable . That can be really obnoxious. Buy this product to go with it.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=0J2-000P-00010

Other Thoughts: The indicator lights are subtle. The power-on light only runs when something is happening, otherwise the thing doesn't add unwanted glow.
