Customer Reviews of Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 4-Port Hub - 4 x USB 2.0 USB Downstream - External
This is the one to buy4/20/2008
I've purchased 2 of these, and couldn't be happier. The top loading port comes in real handy. And it's AC powered, so it should handle devices that require some extra power. And of course, the price is very reasonable. My only minor gripe is that is is light, and you might need to tape it down or something to keep the cables from pulling it to the floor - not a big deal though.
Good price and service4/3/2008
No problem, well satisfied
I bought this Belkin hub so I would have easy access to plug in a thumb drive. It is also compatible with Apple iPod. My previous hub did not play nice with an iPod. USB hubs should "just work". Over the years I've come across some hubs that confuse printers, iPods, or other devices. So far this Belkin F5U233 is working fine.
