Product Description

Product Description

This USB innovation from Belkin lets you connect up to four peripherals quickly and easily. Our 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.

From the Manufacturer

The elegant Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 4-Port Hub (F5U234v1) lets you connect up to four peripherals through a single open port on your PC or Mac. Ideal for use with USB devices including printers, storage drives, cameras, and scanners, this Hub supports USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 connections, hot-swapping, and cascading setups. In addition, plug-and-play installation makes adding it to your existing system quick and easy.

High-Speed Convenience with Four 480Mbps Ports
The Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Hub features four downstream USB ports for data transfers at up to 480Mbps. It's built to work seamlessly with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 devices, which means you can keep older-generation peripherals up and running while maximizing the high-speed performance of new devices.

Compact and elegant, the Hi-Speed Hub offers a stackable, reversible design that allows its four ports to be positioned toward the back of your desktop for efficient cable management, or toward the front of your desktop for quick port access.

Enables Hot Swapping and Cascading for Added Versatility
The Hi-Speed Hub supports "hot swapping" of all your USB devices, which means you can plug-in then unplug peripherals--like printers and storage devices--as you need them. You won't have to worry about rebooting, data loss, or the interruption of other system operations.

Also, the Hi-Speed Hub allows cascading, so you can use it in a multiple-hub setup to connect up to 127 USB devices using a single open port on your computer.

Self-Powered Model with Over-Current Protection
Self-powered, the Hi-Speed Hub can be used to connect up to two high-speed devices without utilizing an additional power supply, minimizing cord tangles and hassles. In addition, convenient LEDs make it easy to monitor individual ports and the Hub's master power status.

The smart design also helps to prevent damage to your expensive computer and USB devices by providing over-current protection.

Plug-and-Play Installation
A plug-and-play setup gets the four-port Hi-Speed Hub up and running quickly and easily. Simply connect it to your computer using a USB cable (sold separately), follow the on-screen directions, and start connecting devices.

System Requirements and Warranty Information
The Hi-Speed Hub works with a broad range of systems. For PC users, it supports Pentium processor-based computers running Windows 98, 2000, ME, XP, or Vista with available USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 ports. For Mac users, it supports low- (1.5Mbps), full- (12Mbps), and high-speed (480Mbps) modes on PowerMac computers equipped with a USB 2.0 upgrade card and Mac OS 9 to OS 10.

The Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 4-Port Hub is backed by a lifetime warranty.

By JCL on July 15, 2007
I purchased this product from a retailer, but returned it in favor of a 7-port StarTech hub from Amazon. As some other reviewers have noted (elsewhere on Amazon and on other ratings sites), this hub is unreliable. After a day or two, it dropped its connection to the computer, and I had to unplug the USB connection to get it to be recognized again.

I borrowed a cheap USB 2.0 hub from a friend, and it worked fine, so I realized that the problem was caused by this hub and was not a computer problem. Belkin's only advice was that this hub might work if it wasn't connected to a surge suppressor. The explanation simply didn't jive with the facts, and removing a safety device seemed to be a ludicrous solution, anyway.

They've lost my confidence...I don't recommend this product. There are cheaper, more reliable products out there. (So far, I'm very happy with the StarTech ST7200USB 7-port hub I got from Amazon.)

This hub stinks. It has a plug, but does NOT act like a powered USB hub. Anything plugged into it will get dropped occasionally, particularly SD card readers, iphones etc. It's junk, 50%+ of the time I plug things into it it doesn't recognize them at all. GARBAGE.

Had this for a year or so. It worked well at first.
First one port died (nothing would work in it), then another, then another. At that point it's a lousy extension cord.
I threw it out.

Connected to an iMac G5, using keyboards, mice, iPhone, disk drives, audio/midi interface.

I bought two of these units to hook up webcams to a pair of Raspberry Pi computers for keeping an eye on my elderly Mom who has Alzheimer's. This hub is on the Raspberry Pi compatibility list and the units I bought have performed flawlessly. They've been in continuous operation for over three months. This is a great hub if you need to power a couple of USB devices that may exceed the output capacity of the built-in USB ports on the Pi. If I need 4 port hubs in the future, I'll buy more of these.

In case anyone was wondering this does work perfectly with the Raspberry Pi and is powerful enough to power the Raspberry Pi off of it, so you just need one plug into the wall. It's fantastic and works exactly as described, haven't had an issue with it yet.

Bought this as a USB hub to use with my Raspberry Pi computer. For other Pi users out there, it worked perfectly, no tweaking etc. required.

When I first purchased this device (also from a retailer other than Amazon)I appreciated being able to use a mouse, an external hard drive, a keyboard and a set of head phones through my Belkin. Now, I have the exact problem described by reviewers even though my device is only about 6 months old. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Lately its been working less and less. There are 4 ports and each lights up green if it works. I started at 4 working when I purchased it, than went to three and now one works, on occasion. Sometimes you reboot and that helps. Sometimes it doesn't. Very unpredictable performer.

I probably have about 12 of these things. Really! Love um'. They snap and stack together. They can be used with or without the power source. Sleek design. Small footprint. I can go on and on.

Have read complaints elsewhere about non functioning units or whatever. I've never had any problems, so I can only guess that somebody got a bad unit or that they were abused is some way. As for myself, I've never had any problems with them and tend to buy them knee jerk for hooking together all the endless external drives and whatnot that have accumulated over the years.

Bottom line: a good solid and expandable solution to your USB 2.0 hub needs.
