Customer Reviews of New Smart USB 2.0 Hi-Speed 4 Port HUB For PC Laptop
DO NOT BUY at ANY PRICE!!12/18/2010
I'm amending my review below. I tried syncing with my blackberry today and a message came up that I had too many devices for the connection to support. I only had "1" other device, a wireless keyboard/mouse. It does not add additional usb connections to your computer.
Doesn't support video, 2GB+ flash drives12/9/2010
I was very disappointed when I hooked this up to my laptop and most of the devises I wanted to connect to my laptop via this device DID NOT WORK. This included any flash drive 2GB or larger, carder readers with large photos or any video. I only had "1" device attached, the other 3 were open. I can use it to connect to printers etc, but that is not what I bough it for. I WISH THE DESCRIPTION WAS MORE SPECIFIC!! I bought it for all the the reasons described, but: (YES)Great on laptops with hard to reach USB ports (NO!!!!)Octopus extension is great for bulky USB devices like thumb drives (IF THEY ARE SMALL) that won't work with standard hubs Perfect for connecting USB 1.1 or 2.0 peripherals such as USB mice (YES), USB Portable Hard Drives(NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!), USB CD-R/RW or DVD-ROM drives and USB 1.1 hu
