2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This hub is small and works okay with one USB device. It's cheap, but not worth it.

Cons: When I plug more than one USB flash drive into the hub, both run continuously and my computer cannot recognize them. Also, the connection is loose so if I accidentally bump or jiggle them, they are disconnected and reconnected. The hub is so light that I need to use poster tac to stick it to the desk.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap, but effective

Pros: It simply works. I charge just about everything with it at the same time: tablets, phones, mp3 players, you name it. It's very small, a lot smaller than I thought it would be. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap, durable, powered usb hub.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: If you just need 4 ports, then this is it. Get it.

4 out of 5 eggsAWESOME

Pros: I just received and installed this 4-port Hub and it works AWESOME! When purchasing a Hub it is "always" best to purchase one that has a "power adapter" so you are sure there is enough power. I am very pleased that I spent the extra money as it was well worth it. There is a reason why this item is Best Ranked as it does what it says that it does. Thanks Newegg, you are the BEST!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well, small

Pros: USB 2.0... small. Works. White.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Works great, at solid speeds with no problems.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: A few wise reviewers suggested that hubs without their own power source don't work under some circumstances. This one has it's own power supply, so it should be 100% solid.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat, but cord is short

Pros: Works great. Using it to connect scanners and printers to a Linux host OS and then also to a Win7 VM inside VirtualBox.

Cons: The USB cable it comes with is too short. It's just long enough that it hangs on the floor by the desktop. It's not long enough to keep on my desk so I can plug/unplug one-off stuff to it. Going to need an extension cable for that. Really stupid.

4 out of 5 eggsA Little More Than Meh.

Pros: It works.

Cons: The included cable is short and the extension cables I have cause the attached devices to become unrecognizable. Additionally, the "optional" power adapter is more of a requirement.
