Most Favorable Review

It works.

GWC HU2G40 USB 2.0 4-Port Hub with 2.5A Power Adapter, Bus-power/Self-power Modes
GWC HU2G40 USB 2.0 4-Port Hub with 2.5A Power Adapter, Bus-power/Self-power Modes

Pros: It can easily be attached to the side of a mini tower with some double-sided tape. I use it to plug in my keyboard, mouse, printer and my mic. Everything worked right off the bat with Windows 7.

Cons: Looks a bit cheap.

Overall Review: Double-sided tape is your friend.

Little bugger just works and works.

Pros: Works like a charm. No A/C adapter to worry about.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Do yourself a favor and plug it directly to the actual computer and not to an USB hub, even if it's a powered USB hub.

Perfect for an Inspiron 530s

Pros: I made the mistake of buying a low profile machine (Dell Inspiron 530s), so I was limited on video card options, but guess what -- this works perfectly. Gaming graphics rated at 6.4 with Windows 7 32bit.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: World of Warcraft runs at 30fps or better on mid-high settings with a 1440x900 resolution. If you have a 64bit operating system, do yourself a favor and go with its big sister: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102874

It Works.

Pros: Helped me plug in an old HP Laserjet 1100 into my Inspiron machine. Windows Update (Windows 7) detected it right away and downloaded the drivers. It was a breeze.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: First time you plug in an old printer to a machine running Windows 7, it might not detect it properly; just run Windows 7 and it will prolly have the driver for the printer right there on the updates to download.

Great, but not excellent.

Pros: Easy to assemble. Worked right off the bat with Windows 7. Solid Construction and Price.

Cons: I wish it was like the WD external hard drives that would power on only when the computer is actually on. So I have to turn it off manually every time I turn off my machine, so it's a bit of an annoyance.

Overall Review: If it was a smart power on feature like the WD external hard drives, this product would be perfect and would get 5/5.
