|Rock-solid hub tames USB cable creep
The FlyHub 2.0 won't be pushed around like featherweight, plastic USB hubs. Its weighted base and non-skid feet stay put, even when cables are being connected or disconnected. And with its USB 2.0 speed-up to 40 times faster than USB 1.1-the hub is a heavyweight performer, connecting up to seven USB devices.
Customer Reviews of Kensington DomeHub USB 2.0 (7 ports) Hub
Very complete. All needs anticipated. Nice weight.
Kinda goofy but I like it...5/3/2008
Overall I like this hub. It's large but the shape gives it a stable base. I like the port at the top for flash drives. The color is a close match to the silver used by Dell and Kensington. On the down side it's a bit pricey...
USB adapter with weight1/22/2008
I liked the idea behind a heavier than normal USB adapter. I have had USB adapters before but all of them lightweight, which would fall around under the weight of cables and usb devices attached to them. This one stays put. USB flashlight is an added value. its bright enough to lit your keyboards at night without disturbing anyone!!!
Nice little hub. Light makes for a little desk lamp. The light can also be used to aide a web cam.
Best hub solution10/15/2007
I've only had the hub for a few days but it's worked out very well for all my USB needs. The weighted dome is a great idea and the spacing of the ports make adding and removing a USB connection fairly easy. One gripe is that the cord that connects to the computer is a permanent cord from the hub which makes it an issue if the cord goes bad or gets damaged. You just can't replace it with another USB cord.
Nice Hub-Doesn't Crash my iMac!11/8/2006
Works fine, just as you would expect. The design and weight are good, although it still tips if you have it too close to the back of the desk (the plugs lean over and pull it down). The plug in the top is very convenient. But the best thing is that it doesn't crash my iMac G5. It replaces an IOGear hub/card reader that, with random but significant frequency, cause the computer to fail to wake up from sleep--a real nuisance. The Kensington doesn't seem to do that, which is really nice. The Fly Light is neat, although I'm not sure how much I'll actually use it.
This hub is an excellent choice. I gave it 4 out of 5 in performance because of the indicator lights. First, the light from one light bleeds over to the next light. Secondly, the light corresponding to the plug is across from the plug, not on the same side. Other than that, this is a good hub and the included flylight is an added bonus (though I wish it had an on-off switch, that is of no consequence to this review).
Love this HUB4/8/2006
I love this usb hub. It tucks nicely in a corner of my computer desk, behind my moniter. It barely gets warm to the touch (unlike some hubs of the same price range that get HOT). Grey color cordinates with all my computer equipment. The Fly Light is a very "Cool" added bonus. It is so handy I can easily plug in two printers, camera etc. Great value for the price. Never has given me any problems, very quick and easy to understand and get everything plugged in to. Very pleased.
Great for the money4/8/2006
Very nice device when hooked up properly. No problems.
Works great. I have a laptop with a lot of USB devices and this has really cleaned up my work area. I love it.
Plugs slip out2/4/2005
It's very cute, and I like the way the LEDs light up when something is plugged in and blink when data is going through.
