Sales Talk:

This USB innovation from Belkin lets you connect up to four peripherals quickly and easily. Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 4-Port Hub provides four downstream USB ports that offer Plug-and-Play connectivity to your USB 1.1 (low- and full-speed) and USB 2.0 (high-speed) devices. This includes such peripherals as scanners, printers, mass-storage drives, and high-resolution cameras. The Hub is self-powered and allows cascading - so that up to 127 USB devices may be connected to a single port. The Hub is uniquely designed so that the four downstream ports can be positioned toward the back of the desktop for efficient cable management, or to the front of the desktop for easier port access. LEDs allow you to easily monitor master power and individual ports.
Comes with a UK 3 Pin Power Adapter.

probably a daft question, but any idea if this will work without the power unit, for low powered usb devices.

It might... but im sure you would be able to find cheaper non powered hubs.

Dealextreme comes to mind.

Hard to find cheap powered hubs as the ones from Dealextreme come with US plugs - but fine for non powered.

Yes it does. I have this exact model and it's very good indeed for £5

Tried the Belkin one and for my money its a piece of crap - it only works with "simple" devices like mouse and keyboard - give it something more complicated like a scanner or a printer and it goes to pieces.

I can second that, I have this Belkin Hub (but not the power supply). Works with everything I've tried on it, but I don't have a printer or scanner.

Thanks - need to use mainly with laptop and didn't want to cart the power supply around, but might need to use the extra power at home occasionally. Ordered.

Thanks I could use one of these

All printer manufacturers recommend that you DO NOT connect through a hub (powered or not). No reason given, and really, no reason required.

I have two of these lil' hubs and have 2 scanners, graphics tablet, Ext HD and camera going through them without any probs... I also paid £7.99, so £5 is great.

Thanks for the feedback guys!

I use one of these to connect a joystick and 2 external hard-drives (both powered externally), works a treat!

H+R added, just ordered 2!

i've got a 7 port belkin one (powered via USB) and it works a treat. I've thrown everything at it from cameras to external hard drives - works fine.

Black so it matches PS3! Thanks OP

Pity the SVP deal finished - I got 2 Belkin 4-pot hubs from them for under £2 each (delivered).

:thumbsup:

But all in all, these are very useful (and mine powers from USB only if required).

got one of these worked ok with me with scanner printer camera and portable hdd

I'm waiting for USB3.0 myself But still a cracking deal, heat and rep added.

the white one with ipod dock is under 6 quid (plus postage I guess)
google.co.uk/pro…g=p

just wondering: if my devices are externally powered anyway, does it matter if I use it with this hub?? I used to have a d-Link one and I think there was some warning about that...Can anyone please clarify... Thanks!

I thought it was at first and I was wowed by it just being a good brand and USB 2, but I was even more wowed when it was delivered with an AC plug! I can't wait until SVP has another free delivery day! :w00t:

How much did you pay for that, and where from? I couldn't find one cheap enough, so ended up getting an unbranded one from Ebay for about £6.60.

You probably know this already, but you would need a motherboard that support USB3.0 or, an USB3.0 adapter, and a device that supports USB3.0 to take advantage of it. Those, along with an USB3.0 hub would cost a premium for a while, so you'll either have to pay a bit or wait a long time.

Apart from external HD (where e-SATA is viable), USB2.0 is to be honest adequate for most devices IMO. What I really want to see, is Certified Wireless USB1.1.
