Buyer Beware. This item is pure trash 02/08/2014
The device looks nice and comes with a large Velcro strip to attach it to any surface. Since its powered, you can use it for charging devices even when your pc isnt turned on. Thats about the only "pros" this thing got.
Oh boy where do i start... The overall built quality is just atrocious. The bottom plastic piece of the housing broke off by 2nd day of usage. The usb cable it comes with is incredibly short. It randomly stops recognizing plugged in devices, i was in the middle of copying a file to a flash drive when the thing stopped detecting my flash stick. Same thing happened 3 times in a row till finally i was able to complete the transfer.
But wait... it gets worse. Few weeks ago my pc started having a very strange issue. When booting up it would freeze at the mobo splash screen for about 10 minutes, till finally posting and booting up. Today i finally got around to troubleshooting the issue, so i unplugged all the peripherals and tried to boot up the pc. To my surprise the machine instantly started up without the 10 min delay. To isolate the root of the issue i started plugging in one usb device at a time and booting up to see if the issue would manifest itself again. Sure enough, when the HooToo was plugged in the problem came back. I tried half a dozen times using different ports to make sure that it was the HooToo causing the issue, and am convinced beyond any doubt that its at root of the problem. As long as the HooToo is not plugged in, my pc boots up instantly, but when i try to boot up with the device plugged in, i get the 10 min splash screen EVERY SINGLE TIME.
Stay away from this thing, it is simply not worth purchasing. I will be requesting an RMA
