Ministry of deals is similar to Boffer but has 4 deals per day. £2 for a hub looks good in my opinion!

How big is the cable on this, might be useful if it wasnt so short

you can get this exact one for about 70p delivered on fleabay...

i wouldnt bank on usb 2.0 speed transfers though.

I thought I saw this at my local poundland...

looks the same a the asda £5 one

Am I right in presuming that "USB 2.0 compatible" really means it only runs at USB 1 speeds

I had one of these - got it from Amazon a few months back.
Total sh..
It wouldn't let me connect a card reader and mobile broadband dongle at the same time. Connecting a mouse and broadband dongle at the same time resulted in an ultra-slow connection.

Save your money. Even at two quid it isn't a bargain.

At Sabrett - about 2cm long.

not 'similar to Boffer' it is boffer under another name.

Avoid these "deal" websites. Although the RRP savings might make it seem like a bargain, don't forget they are still making money at those prices so the products are usually sub-standard and barely working.

The one at Poundland is USB 1 and 1.1 only, this is USB 2.0

Had something similar, played havoc with my ipod. Wouldnae sync at all, even using normal usb ports while the thing was plugged in.

I heard about MinistryOfDeals from this site and ordered four times so far - everything I received is reasonable quality.

In fact, I have recently ordered the FitnessFirst sun-glasses (2 for £4) and they're excellent quality and style. They included two weekend passes to FitnessFirst so that was a real hot bargain, at least in my opinion :-)

I have ordered this USB hub too, heat and rep added - thanks very much.

Compatible means if you plug it into a USB 2 port it will work at USB 2 speeds.

I disagree i've had some fantastic stuff from boffer and ministry. Nothing i have bought has been sub-standard or inferior except where they tell you (e.g. a scratch or mark on the case). They make it very clear what you are buying. If you are a person that is sniffy about buying refurbs or graded products then don't use them. Simple, but most of us,particularly in these difficult times are open to a good bargain and it gives us an opportunity to buy something we otherwise couldn't afford!

Thanks! :thumbsup:

It looks like this hub is unpowered. This usually means that you stand little chance of being able to find 4 things that you can plug in that will work - most devices require more power than a splitter such as this can provide. I have an unpowered hub here, I can't plug in more than 1 of the following into it: mouse, anything that charges, USB memory keys with led access light, so its less useful than you'd expect.

U beat me 2 it, it's the same as in Poundland.
I believe it's USB 1.1 (USB2 compatible, but not USB2 speads)

No - it's not, and it doesn't claim that it is! It is USB2 COMPATIBLE which means it works with USB2 but only at USB1 speed!

I'd be quite disappointed if this is not USB 2.0 as mentioned. I'm sure MinistryOfDeals would take it back for a refund but it will cost more than £2 to return to whatever Island they're sending from (I think it's Guernsey).

And as far as I'm aware: USB2 Compatible = USB 2 Speeds.

The term "USB2 compatible" was coined by sellers stuck with loads of USB1 goods just after USB2 was introduced - lots of people didn't know if a USB1 gadget would work in a USB2 port.

USB2 means it works at USB2 speed while USB2 compatible means it will work in a USB2 port but only at USB1 speed.
