      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not recommended for use by anyone

      I bought this on a whim in Maplin electronics at an extortionate price of 20 euro. At the time I thought it would be a good piece of equipment for this price so I didn't have any concerns. Then I actually started using it and realised I had paid way over the top for this USB hub! The hub itself is manufactured by Trust who seem to be a budget hardware manufacturer. It is navy blue and made out of plastic. There are three usb ports on the front and another usb port at the rear end so four in total. The device feels very cheap but it is easy to slip into your laptop bag if needed at college or work. Its very light but it would break very easily if dropped. It connects with a very short usb cable to your computer. I found this a bit awkward to manage because I like to have a lot of room on my desk to spread about my equipment and this device didnt give me the room to do that. It practically just sat on my laptop in the way. I use it mainly for plugging in my wireless dongle and also flash drives. There was a bit of a space problem while trying to plug in my external hard drive and two flash drives because the ports were too close together. This didnt bother me too much because I just removed a flash drive from the hub and inserted it into my laptop instead. I never had any problems with my laptop recognising the hub or anything and any device I connected to it worked perfectly. However when I tried to remove a flash drive at one stage my hand touched another port in the process and I got electrocuted! I would not recommend this to anyone who wants a usb hub as it is cheap and not worth the money at all.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Simple, easy to use, good compromise between size and number of ports

        This is a very compact unit - I find it can fit in my shirt pocket (like my MP3 player). I like the way that the front of the unit has 3 ports, and the 4th is tucked away at one end. This arrangement, as Trust themselves say, is good for attaching a USB device that is fairly space-hungry. My only complaint is that the 3 ports on the front are too close together: on mine, I can connect my USB Zip-250 drive cable and one of my flash drives, but not the other. I think if you're plugging in 3 cabled devices on the front panel, then you'll be fine, but a combination of 2 or more flash drives requires a little bit more planning: I got it to work by plugging the Zip-250 drive into the middle port and a flash drive either side. The host plug fits nicely into the device itself when not in use, although I do have concerns about the abuse it will take when folded round and about the length: it's a shame that this cable couldn't be a little bit longer. I simply plugged it into one of my laptop's USB ports, Windows XP recognised it and it was set up and ready to go very quickly.
