I've always hated where my USB ports were located on my notebook computer plus I only had two...four would have been better. I was looking for a cost-effective option and found it!
~ No problems from the time I ordered it from Buy.com, to when I actually started using it. This 'hub' was truly plug-n-play. Set up took as long as opening the box and sliding it in the slot.
~ I would buy this particular item/brand again in a heartbeat should the need arise. It is a terrific buy and priced much lower than similar items I found in the brick-n-mortar stores.
