Our newest Hub has a low-profile design specifically engineered to stack on top of or below the Mac mini-helping to organize and save your valuable desktop space. The Hub provides four downstream USB ports compatible with both Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 (low- and full-speed) devices. It also features two FireWire ports to connect up to two of your FireWire devices. A single USB and a FireWire port are located on the front of the Hub to give you easy access for quick, temporary connections of USB thumb drives, media readers, small accessories such as the Apple iPod and iPod shuffle, and more.
Customer Reviews of Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 and FireWire 6-Port Hub for Mac mini Model
Not for my needs1/23/2011
The Belkin product looked well made and as though it would fit right underneath or on top of the Mini. I'm sure that is a fine product, but I returned it after realizing it would not work in connecting my 2002 Quicksilver and new Mac Mini to one single monitor, keyboard, and mouse. Buy.com did a speedy refund!
USB 2.0 Hub That Works10/18/2010
This is a USB hub. It works fine for high-speed USB 2.0 connections. I have an old USB 1.0 hub and needed to speed a few things up, so I have the old hub attached to the new hub (for stuff I don't care about speed), and then I have the things I want to run at higher speeds attached to this hub. It works fine. It looks nice. Haven't tried the firewire connection so I'm not sure how that is, but I suspect it is OK too.
Belkin Hub works well, looks good, easy to install. I am not using it with a min mac so I would have liked a longer connecting cable instead of the 4" one supplied with the unit. I bought a second one for my PC. Other wise excellent.
Elegant Solution - Especially for MacMini2/11/2009
The hub is compact and cleverly designed with one each FireWire and USB port in the front for easy connectivity. At the rear are three USB ports and one FireWire. I would prefer three of each, but it is what it is. The transfer rate is excellent; the included cables are sufficient for initial use. MacMini users should note that the hub is designed to match the dimensions of your computer, but is only 15mm (5/8") thick, so it fits perfectly either atop or beneath.
Duh! Why are most of the ports in the back? Only 1 each in front. Captive cable could stand to be a little longer if you are using DVI to VGA adapter on mini. A .5" less in width would give better air flow to Mac mini when under it.
Very happy with product and service5/11/2008
My order got here a day before I expected it which was nice. It was the best price I could find and it worked perfectly and in seconds after opening the box it was doing its thing. Just be warned this HUB is designed to sit on top of the Mac Mini or similar shaped object so the cord is very short...a couple inches...but I would rather have that than too much cord. it works great. I used to shop at ecost exclusively but this is where I come first now.
Must have extension for multiple connections5/3/2008
Nifty device that expands your available usb and firewire ports on the mac mini. It is a "must have" for expansion and multiple usb hubs. The cables are a little tight connecting in the rear of the mini mac but I like the neat appearance of my desktop. Overall great value.
It does exactly what it says on the box. Easy to use and install.
Does NOT fit newer Mac Minis!1/25/2008
If you have a older Mac Mini with two USB ports, this will mostly likely fit just fine. If you have the newer Mac Mini with 4 USB ports, you'll find that when trying to hook up the hub, the supplied 6-inch firewire cable is too short for the Mini and hub devices to line up properly. It is impossible to have the hub under the Mini, and if hooked up (stretched) on top of the Mini, it will not "fit" right. I had to call Belkin Sales at 800-223-5546 for a 1-foot fireware cable, which they provided at no charge. It is a shame this product does not specify it is only for the older Mac Minis. I should have noticed this though, since on the box it shows a picture of the first generation iPod Shuffle being hooked in to the front port.
Great USB/FW hub1/24/2008
This is a great USB/FW hub for either Mac Mini (as it fits under the Mac Mini) or a MacBook Pro, affording 2 FW and 4 USB ports at a price a good deal under most other choices for a hub.
Included cables too short1/2/2008
This USB port works fine but the included cables are so short the hub will not even sit flat on my desk, it is just hanging from the back of my imac.
The hub works great, fits perfectly under the Apple Airport as well. Lots of ports, and buy.com was great with delivery...as usual.
MAC Mini USB9/11/2006
Makes the MAC Mini look even better then it does. The Belkin fits perfectly under The Mini. I had no difficulty installing it. It makes the Mini that much more useful because what the Mini lacks, USB and Firewire ports on the front where it is easy to get to, the Belkin makes up for that short coming. Buy.Com was remarkable. The product arrived promptly and in perfect condition. The cost was more then half of what my local Apple store was selling it for. Way to go Buy.Com!!!!
It looks like and works perfectly. It exactly matches the size of the mini and complements the good looks of the Apple. The front firewire and USB ports are so convenient for my flash drive and digital camera. The low price I paid at Buy.com is half the price of my local Apple store. Can't beat it or Buy.com. A+++++
