I purchased the Belkin USB hub after buying other hubs in the past and then finding that they either did not work very well or they worked for a matter of weeks. I know Belkin is a name I can trust and I have not been disappointed. It transfers data up to 480MPS and has never let me down.
This USB hub is very compact which is why it is described as being a mobile hub. It looks very stylish and works. I have owned my USB hub for about a year and a half now and it has not given me any problems at all. It is USB 1 and USB 2 compatible and allows you to turn 1 USB port into 4 simply by plugging it in. I wanted mine not because I do not have enough USB ports on my computer but because the USB ports are located around the back of the computer and it saves me from having to move the computer each time I want to plug something in.
Because the USB hub is so small it can be carried around with you and could easily fit into a laptop bag. It can travel with you easily as it is so light. I know USB 3 has arrived now so hopefully Belkin will make a similar hub or even the same hub with the speed of USB 3. Anyone buying a new computer will want to be able to transfer data at the USB 3 speed which is part of the reason of upgrading or buying a new computer. If you are using this hub with a printer then it will not make any difference as a USB 2 hub will not slow down any printing you were doing. This only really applied if you are using an external hard drive or uploading something like picture to your computer where the speed of data transfer is important.
I know there is not too much to say about a USB hub but the main thing that I want to get across is that it works. After trying about 6 USB hubs and each one not lasting at all I thought I would try a good branded one and I am not disappointed, its great, it works.
The Hi-Speed USB 2.0 4-Port Mobile Hub provides four downstream USB ports that offer easy plug-and-play connectivity to your USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 devices. It lets you easily connect up to four of your USB 1.1 and 2.0 devices to your computer, such as an iPod or other MP3 player, digital camera, or printer. Its compact size makes it a perfect travel tool, designed to easily tuck into the pockets of a laptop bag.
