Saw this in Poundland Epsom - good deal if you need extra USB ports

£1 great value!

Bought one of these a while ago to test a Joggler and boot was in minutes rather than seconds-almost certainly not USB 2.0.

you have to be careful Pondland stock USB 1.1 and 2.0 versions it says on the packet. Differently shaped devices too.

Pretty much everything at £land is usb1

confirmed in my local, this is usb 1.1

i bought one last time they had them in, says usb 2.0 on the packet, but clearly isnt

Packs in my local (Bexleyheath) say 1.1 and you only get about 5cm lead on it too so not ideal for extending... but hey, it's a quid!

I got some pringles and a sat nav cover. Neither of these were USB1

anyone know where i can get a decent one of these? i had a belkin one but it broke and i miss it. preferably with an external power supply (plug it into the wall rather than usb powered)

These won't power many devices. iPhone charger wont work using this, nor will my printer or mouse. Pretty poor really.

Bought a 'BELKIN Rotating 4 USB Hub Splitter, F5U415UK' for £6.99 off eBay last week, and it works great, fast delivery, etc.

Yeah, the Poundland ones are cheaper, but I used one of their card readers the other day and it corrupted a 16gig memory card just as I was backing it up

I use on of these to charge my 4 ps3 move controllers up works fine

Everytime Ive send one of these in Poundland they've always been 1.1 not 2

These have been in stock for nearly a year at the Portsmouth and IoW stores.

The cable is so short it means that you will have to buy a USB extension cable too - SOME poundlands sell these

You should only look at if something is USB 2.0 initially, but then look at the actual speed. When they say USB 2.0 on the packet they mean it is compatible with USB 2.0, not that it will actually run at full USB 2.0 speeds. The actual throughput might even be lower than 1.1 on some devices. Be careful.

Bought a similair one from poundland a few weeks ago, didn't even let me attach USB flash drives to it. Utter **** tbh.

NEVER buy one of these from poundland, every one I've had has broken in minutes, load of rubbish.

I bought 2 about a year ago and they are very definitely USB 1 even though the pack clearly says USB2. Call me a mug but they've recently been doing a different model with a USB2 sticker on top of the USB1 on the pack. I thought I'd risk it but haven't got round to testing it yet.

I'd seen the USB1.1 (rectangular) ones before and avoided them. Went in yesterday and saw those plus another type, best I can describe as a "surfacing whale" in a green blister card pack It said "2.0 Certified USB" on a sticker in the top-right: I assumed this was a new USB2 version and decided to splash out on one

When I got back home, I peeled off the sticker to find an identical "2.0 Certified USB" logo to the sticker underneath apart from the words "Hi-Speed" on it. It looks like a crafty way of selling off old USB1 gear

In testing, Windows XP always tells you to that things will run faster when anything's plugged into the hub. Using "Advanced USB Port Monitor" it shows this:-

Vendor: 0x05E3 (Genesys Logic, Inc.)
Product ID: 0x0606 (USB 2.0 Hub / D-Link DUB-H4 USB 2.0 Hub)
Device ID: 0x0702
Manufacturer: 0x01 (ALCOR)
Product: 0x02 (USB Hub 2.0)
Serial number ID: 0x00
Number of configurations: 1
Connection status: Device connected
Current config value: 0x01
Device bus speed: Full (USB 1.1, 12 Mbit/s)


I think calling it "USB Hub 2.0" looks to similar to "USB 2.0 Hub"...

definitely USB1, despite specifically mentioning USB 2.0 on the packet. Going back!
