Customer Reviews of 4-Port Splitter USB Hub 2.0 For PC Mac Laptop Desktop 12Mbps
Great product and was only a penny! What a bargain! It definitely helps with expanding my devices connected to my computer.

The device doesn't read everything that I hook up to it like my western digital 1TB hard drive but most things I've tried work.
I am happy with the purchase

Works great - great value
Easiest and cheapest way to add USBs9/21/2012
What you see is what you get.. simple, easy, and works great
Allows you to use multiple add-ons w/ items that have only one port. Would also like one w/ mini USB port that plugs into tablet & has additional ports in the regular size.
Great product for the price and fast service!
Good product for the price.7/31/2012
The hub works fine with accessories like cooling pad or flash drives. But it does not work properly with some high speed 480 mbps devices like a wireless mouse or keyboard like my Logitech M or K series (it kept disconnecting and reconnecting) assuming this hub is 12 mbps that's why. You'll need to plug in those devices directly into your mac's USB port. Overall not too bad for the price.
4 Port USB Splitter - Built tough & Works Great7/30/2012
This 4 port splitter works great and is solidly constructed. Note that it does not work with a wall charger (so you can't charge 4 iPods at once with a wall plug-in) but it wasn't advertised to do that. It does handle 4 iPods when used in conjunction with a PC.
Worth the price6/7/2012
The USB Octopus, was well made and is doing everything it claimed to do.
Performs as stated. Even works well with a few 15' extension cables in between the PC and hub.
The product was inexpensive, shipped quickly, packaged correctly so it arrived in perfect condition. Works as advertised.
This is a pretty simple piece of equipment but I have previously used similar items that failed to adequately perform. This particular model seems to perform rather well the function for which it was designed.
