looks good to me even tho it is not ac powered, another thing is it does not say how long th ethernet cable is. The only details igiven is "Features - Retractable Ethernet Cat5 (10/100) Cable " so many metres extension is that?
#3
sorry for being thick, but what does the ethernet cable bring to the party?

EDIT - I know what it does, just seems a strange combination. Good price so heat added

I thought you could add USB storage to it and put it on the network, alas I realised it just a retractable CAT5 cable to plug your laptop into a hub etc...

So the cat 5 does what?

Still don't get it, lol.

is that cat5 cable the same as I use from my router to my PC? If so then what is one doing on a USB hub? Why? It looks like it has two connectors so would I stick one end in my router and the other in my PC to get the internet?

And then the 4 usb ports would be used as a usb extension for the PC that is connected?

use the ethernet cable for hotels, travel places, airports etc etc instead of carying arround a normal cable with you (if you have no wifi)

The "cat5" part is simply a coiled up cable... its NOTHING to do with the hub !
They can be split apart and used separately.... not sure how they came up with this pairing !

is right. they are not stuck together although they look like that in the picture

they pairing make very good for traveling. I wish I had one of these a while ago at a hotel I was staying at.
#11
the ethernet cable and the hub can be separated.
#12
Yes, the ethernet cable is an extremely occasional thing. There aren't many people who will need both the hub and the retractable ethernet cable at the same time.

Check out some of the other hubs on 7dayshop - for most people it'll be a better buy getting a powered hub for the same price.

http://www.targus.com/SG/product_details.asp?sku=ACH77AP

why the ethernet cable? because this is designed for laptop users when travelling. you connect it to a usb port and an ethernet port. the other end of the ethernet cable will plug in to a router or switch

interestingly when you look at the pictures i think you can see a power plug port, meaning you could possibly buy a power adapter and make this in to a powered hub. documentation doesnt seem to mention this thought.

thats what I have been trying to say. Invaluable for no or slow wifi

I would buy an seperate ethernet as that one looks bit weak. Also most laptops come with 3-4 USB ports, how much do you want to plugin?
I would go to Pound Land and look in the electronics section for cheaper

Just to clesr things up... You can't use this to attatch a USB drive to a network?!?

Or am I wrong? On this occasion I'd love to be!
#19
Hi,
This may be a novice question, but why would i want a powered usb hub? I thought usb devices generally came with a power source from the computer? My USB pens, hard drive sucks power from the usb port and devices which require a power supply (like printers) come with their own power supply... so why would i want a powered usb hub for?? *confused*
#20
Good luck plugging in a big HDD caddy into that hub, will need to be powered.

no you cannot, it is simply a usb hub and a separate retractable network cable

you are one the right track. but some devices need a lot of power. now there are two types of usb ports - powered and unpowered.

here is a log of me attaching a power hungry device to a non-powered usb port:

[318984.052149] usb 2-7.3: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 13
[318984.102583] usb 2-7.3: not running at top speed; connect to a high speed hub
[318984.112664] usb 2-7.3: rejected 1 configuration due to insufficient available bus power

i then connect a powered hub to the same usb port and voila enough power and it works

other problems can occur when you attach loads of usb powered devices (ones solely powered via usb) you will find the last ones will start having problems. at this point you'll need to start using a powered hub.

also, some laptops dont supply enough power via usb to support power greedy devices (like portable bus powered hds). you will notice that some of these portable hds come with a dual usb cable (see picture below). the usb mini connection attaches to the portable hd, then one of the others connects to your pc. if that port cant supply enough current, you then attach the second one to a different usb port. with a powered hub you wouldnt have this problem.

that is not necessary true and is dependent on your computers motherboard and usb chipset. some chipsets supply more power, others do not. in general laptops don't pump out much, neither do the front ports on a lot of desktop machines. it also depends on the hd, newer hds are far more energy efficient than old hds.
