Review of CNet 4-Port USB 2.0 HubSeptember 3, 2007
A low end piece of rubbish which has been unreliable since day one. You are better off getting no-name stuff on eBay
I got this hub over a year ago. It was the cheapest USB hub I could find at slightly over £10 if memory serves.
It is a chunky box with semi-transparent casing. It comes with a PSU and cable for connection to PC.
Whilst it does the core job it has three basic problems:
- The power connector is wobbly
- It gets incredibly hot and so should not be stacked
- It is unreliable, losing connectivity to daisy-chained hubs all the time.
I’ve just ordered a no-name 7-port hub off eBay for less than half of what I paid for this CNet. Avoid.
