Belkin Firewire Hub works great

by on 8/21/2008

I've been using this for a couple of weeks now. I've got three Firewire 400 devices plugged into it. (I wish there were Firewire 800 hubs but apparently there aren't, not at an affordable price, anyway.) I'm using it to connect to external hard drives. So far it's worked just fine, and it's small, doesn't take up a lot of desk space. It has its own power supply (plug into AC). I have only one cavil: it's advertised as a 6-outlet hub. However, one of those six outlets has to be used to connect the hub to the computer, leaving only five usable sockets. I think it should be advertised as a hub with five usable sockets. It was very reasonably priced. I'm glad I bought it.

Product Overview

The latest innovation from Belkin delivers six, peer-to-peer FireWire ports that support data throughput of up to 400Mbps. Our new FireWire 6-Port Hub connects seamlessly with your FireWire DV camcorders, web cams, FireWire storage devices, scanners, printers, and other DV-compatible multimedia devices. The Hub also acts as a FireWire repeater, so you can place devicesup to an additional 15 feet (4.5 meters) from other connected FireWire peripherals. Connecting devices to the Hub using 6-pin to 6-pin FireWire cables enables them to draw power from the Hub, for even easier setup and operation.
