This 10-port USB hub is a good value. The enclosure is not top-of-the-line quality with a label that doesn't fit it particularly well. The hub works just fine and hopefully will save some wear on the ports that are on my computer. Recommended.
USB 2.0 specs specify each USB port should have 500mA of power. They send this unit with a cheapo 5x / 1000mA power supply.
The internals on this are good enough you should be able to get 4-5 power-needing items working on this simultaneously, but you won't get all 10 working ever.
Don't shy away from this hub, just don't buy it here unless they change the specs to show they have an adequately-sized power brick.
This will NOT work for bitcoin mining without a different brick.
Received this and hooked it up. I was never able to get the device to work. I had to reboot my machine multiple times due to it stopping all my USB devices. When I went to unplug the power supply, the case/cover of the power supply came off. Inspecting this, it did not have a screw to keep it together. I ordered this due to the high reviews, so I might have gotten a bad one.
I've tried it both ways, USB powered and plug-in power outlet. Works much better in the power outlet and thats why im giving it a 5 because in my case, i had no choice but to use a plug-in. Works ok with USB power. Guess just depends on what you're going to use it for. Worth the money!
