A true lady you are, concider it Spammed :friends:

I got the exact same hub from Poundland. Not sure if it's USB 2.0 though. It does say 2.0 on the packaging although I'm not convinced.

Why when clicking on 'go to deal' it goes through the website paidonresults.com?

voted lukewarm since its a good deal but i dont like ministryofdeals anymore
7dayshop.com/cat…392 49p more but better retailer plus the 7dayshop one is powered by ac aswell, it looks like the one in the topic is not.

actually it adds "3 extra USB ports to your computer" :P

Beware of these cheap hubs. I had once which shorted when I plugged something in. Took out my motherboard.

Please explain, why do you need an external power source? I have a port I paid a hell of a lot more than £3 for and it hasn't it's own power, don't see why it would need it.

Also, do you not already have enough plugs around your computer, I know I have. :roll:

mine gets forwarded to paidonresults too - then redirects? whats that about?

Got one of these in Poundland the other day, wouldn't pay much more though.

devices that take power from usb such as a 2.5" portable hard drive, will not work from unpowered usb hubs.

Not true, I have a 600GB external hard drive and run it through my HUB regularly :w00t:

Maybe thats to do with my HUB?

As far as i know there is no such thing as a 600GB 2.5" portable drive. I think you mean 500GB.
"A bus-powered hub is a hub that draws all its power from the host computer's USB interface. It does not need a separate power connection. However, many devices require more power than this method can provide, and will not work in this type of hub.

USB current (related to power) is allocated in units of 100 mA up to a maximum total of 500 mA per port. Therefore a compliant bus powered hub can have no more than four downstream ports and cannot offer more than four 100 mA units of current in total to downstream devices (since one unit is needed for the hub itself). If more units of current are required by a device than can be supplied by the port it is plugged into, the operating system usually reports this to the user.

In contrast a self-powered hub is one that takes its power from an external power supply unit and can therefore provide full power (up to 500mA) to every port. Many hubs can operate as either bus powered or self powered hubs."
en.wikipedia.org/wik…hub the one in the topic is bus powered, the 7dayshop option is powered by an external power supply. Like i said earlier the price is alright for non powered hub, i just dont like the retailer.
