Customer Reviews of eForCity 4-Port Octopus USB 2.0 Hub, Black
Doesn't always work12/13/2011
The computer detects the adapter when connected, but does not always detect my devices connected via the splitters. I'm not sure why this is the case. Bottom line is that this item is not dependable.
It works great for connecting devices that don't need much power, like pen drives, mouse, external keyboard, etc. But it doesn't work with my external hard drives or HD webcams, for example. So I guess it's fair for its price, you can load the hub with low power devices and leave the USB ports in your computer/laptop free for the power demanding ones.
Mine died after 3 uses1/24/2011
Good value if it worked for any length of time. Tried in 2 different computers once it stopped working. It's not the computer. Junk!
Works perfectly, great price!10/27/2010
The product works perfectly and is a great value for the money!
1st two times I used it, fine. Then it fritzed ou10/24/2010
Very easy to use. I do like the concept, but I don't know what's wrong with this thing. It worked great at first. Then I took my laptop on a weekend trip. Came back and when I plugged it in, it sent my computer into some kind of paralysis. I managed to get the computer working again. My husband tried the port again and that time he ended up having to take the battery out of the computer to get the computer operational again!
The product functions as expected; however, with the slightest movement, it has to "recognize" each device although no other device has been added. My wiring appears loose which may be the issue here.

This product is good and simple to use.
This device has simplified our life. We no longer have to unplug USB plugs from the back of our computer. With this one fantastic device, the kids can plug in their iPods without unplugging our printer or mouse. Yeah!
Product works great..and great value for the money.
I am really happy with this purchase: fast service, reasonable delivery, pretty good price, and very good product quality. I am using it now and also sharing it with my husband when I do not need it. We both are enjoying it and I am planning to buy one or two more soon. I would highly recommend this product for future users.
Perfect for my needs, light weight, compact, inexpensive, this is a great product, I highly recommend.
Exactly What I Needed3/22/2009
So easy to use, I just plugged it in and was good to go. I use it mostly for my cameras, phone and MP3 so I plug and unplug often. Great price and fast shipping.
What you pay for3/17/2009
This item works, but it is poorly made and something about it causes your PC to have to "recognize" the device each time you start up and then has to install all the drivers, etc. (I use Vista). Once done however it works like a champ. I just wish I could plug it in and have it work each time I need it rather than having to unplug and reboot occasionally. If you plan to use this a lot, I suggest finding a better product.
This product makes it easy to hook up multiple USB devices. Would certainly buy again.
Bought this for my PlayStation 3 (PS3) and it works perfectly. Shipping was good. And it works just as expected.
Fast shipping, higly recomended
