They actully state 2.0 On front of package .but when I put one of these in my media player they won't read all four hardrives. So they might be falsely stating 2.0. So they might be 1.1.

what sort of hard drives? 2.5 inch drives without external power supply?

from experience these are usb 1.0
#6
its a pound. bargain.

anyone with the urge to have a go at its tech specs, again, its a pound. bargain.

once more or have we got it yet?

**plus this applies to similar £1 HDMI cables, bluetooth dongles etc etc

I am not usually Mr Negative but I would invest a few more pounds and get a reasonable brand. These very cheap devices frequently malfunction, by personal experience, and it is not always obvious where the problem lies. It is quite possible to waste hours troubleshooting a problem caused by a dirt cheap device.

I've had one of these for a couple of months.

I can state catagorically that they ARE USB 2.0 and I've verified this with flash drives, an SD card reader, and an externally powered 3.5 inch drive.
#9
might get one and turn it into a mini 5v supply :O

My 2.5" sata HDD in a USB enclosure with 2 USB connector (power & data) did not like this adapter, was clicking away so probably wasn't getting enough power
#11
these are not usb 2.0, they have put stickers over the usb 1.1 image.

I have inputted mine into a W7 pc and it states it is USB 1.1.
#12
These are rubbish. Only for low power devices like mouse or webcam.

They don't work with USB hard drives.

Only powered USB hubs are worth buying.
#13
lol At the disbelievers.... Very comical answers as per usual....

When you have bought around 100 of these, repackaged them and sold them for £8.99 each...

With no returns ! You know your on to a good un...

Grab em at a quid while you can.... If not I will :)

I bought one of these a few months ago and commented about it on here. It's old "cave" USB1.0 speed one which will be a big bottleneck to virtually all modern devices.

The packaging on mine came with a sticker obscuring the actual USB class. Mine's just gathering dust just inches away from this keyboard...

I'm sure for a couple of quid extra, there's a USB2.0 one available from somewhere.
#15
Just because it's cheap from poundland, doesn't mean it's crap, obviously, they buy lots of bankrupt stock etc, so the original selling price could have been much higher.

Your text here

It would have sold at a lot higher price in the mid 1990's :)
#18
Bargain, I saw ethernet cables for a £1 last time I was in, also firewire..
#19
You need this http://sourceforge.net/projects/n2ncopy/ to start your own duplicating business !
#20
I'm afraid that I wasnt impressed with mine - sloooow as hell and some stuff didnt detect correctly (USB 1.1)..... HMDI cables were a good deal though!
#21
When I attach a data device to it, W7 says you could have married someone better or USBed better or something something. I attached 4 £land USB star LED light strings to it. Each has 8 LEDs, with a choice of blue or white which is written on the package, so on the hub there are 32 LEDs for a total cost of £5. I have two sets at £10 for 64 LEDs as I don't like bright lights anyway. Good thing is this way I can control how many LEDs I want on. It's OK for keyboard/mouse/SD Card reader/USB toys and occasional data transfer from drives where it is a quick jobby.
#22
Took the plunge and purchased one of these a few weeks ago. They are version 1.1!! Not 2.0 as stated on packaging!
#23
I have one plugged in my ps3 works fine for ps3 eye, but if you plug flash drive into it its painfully slow, would say its USB1.1. ok for a quid but useless & will probably end up in the back of a draw with the other poundland tat i fill my basket with because its all only a pound!!!

Keyboard and mouse don't need USB 2.0 and many printers still use USB 1.1. If that is all you will be attaching, then this is fine.

Both my printers are 2.0, this comment is misleading

I will agree on this, most of the card readers, usb hubs i have brought from poundland have been poor rubbish along with an hdmi lead,i recently purchased for a £1,( lines across my tv). You are only buying cheap rubbish and i have found out to my cost it is not worth the hasstle.
#29
i've got two different styled hubs from poundland, both had 2.0 on the packaging but are usb 1. the packaging is misleading. each time i'm in i check to see if they have more that are geniunely usb 2.0 and i noticed they had put stickers over the packaging to point out they are only usb 1

these are fine for mice and keyboards, but as others have pointed out they aren't much use for most modern usb devices
#30
siewmk...............,............ The drives I put to hub are all desktop drives. 3.5. With power but as uni Has put if they got stickers on then they are 1.1. But under the stickers there down as 2.0. But I personally think that the hubs are in wrong package and are 1.1

How is it misleading? Unless you own every printer around and can vouch that they all require usb 2.0. Those without inbuilt scanners can get by perfectly well with usb 1.1. Just how large are those print jobs that you are sending to your printer, anyway?
banned#32
I have one, when I got it there was a sticker of lies saying USB 2.0 when it was 1.1 (it said that under the sticker) I also had to 'remodel' the USB lead to it as it was squashed... I know that was a 1 off tho.

Paying a high price does not guarantee quality these days as most of these devices are made in the same Chinese factories and sticking a top brand sticker on one often increases the price not the quality.

I have various 4 port USB hubs in my collection including some decent makes and they are no better than the poundland device I bought, USB ports are sometimes querky and a device may work fine on one PC yet be troublesome on another, personally I think it's the nature of USB.

Same applies to Poundland USB card readers, I have several of these and they work just as well as the Integral made one I paid £8.99 for!
#34
I bought 2 of the old style about a year ago and despite the USB2 packaging, they were 1.1. I got an excellent Maxell branded USB2 one from Asda recently for £6. I keep seeing these in Poundland in recent months and am quite naturally reluctant to believe what the packing says - especially when I see stickers over the top!

Incidentally, USB 1 operates at 12Mbps which is certainly fast enough for your mouse, keyboard and printer. It's probably twice the speed of your internet connection.

sounds like this is really going to be cheap and cheerful then. I can still remember using usb 1.1 and it take ages to copy large amount of data.
#36
But poundland hubs should state they are 1.1. And not 2.0. Because wen u get them home and find out there to slow and not do wat there ment to do. If you have to take them back then it's time wasted. I live about 35 miles away from my nearest poundland so in my case not worth taking back for a pound. But if I lived closer I would take them back.
#37
This hub was a bit rubbish, didn't suit my requirements, but I picked up an ethernet cable at the same time and it works perfectly.
#38


No that one is def USB1.1, the one featured in this thread is a different shape and works on my PC's as USB2.

Some people are saying that they assume this is USB1.1 because of a USB2 sticker on the card covers the original printing stating USB1.1 but many companies stick labels on printed packaging to correct mistakes or reuse it, in any case when I carefully removed the USB2 sticker on my package it was actually covering a printed USB2 logo anyway, I can only asumme that some people are confusing this with the earlier device or some are packed differently.
