This review is from: Rosewill RHUB-300 - 7-Port USB 2.0 Hub with Power Adapter
If your like me and love USB gadgets but Hate unplugging and replugging them in constantly when you need to install new kit in your rig then this is a life saver. I have just about all of my USB devices; except my keyboard, mouse and ipod; plugged into this thing. i went from unplugging and replugging 9 USBs down to 3.
Knock on wood. I haven't had any so far.
For anyone that is trying to power external hard drives off this thing i hope you keep an extinguisher near your desk. I have always treated Hubs as ways of connecting a bunch of random low power gadgets to my desktop. If you try and run some USB power hard drives off of them they either wont work cause they don't get enough power or pull too much and short out potentially burning up everything in the hub. Powered Hubs like this are a lot more robust then hubs powered off of the USB bus but you still have to keep in mind that the more stuff you plug into one the less power each device gets.
