Definitely no! Without power it's totally dead - like a stone! You must connect it to power and then you can expect it to work - if there is no anything other wrong. If you don't want to use power, you can check another model - http://www.amazon.com/Anker%C2%AE-4-Port-Portable-Aluminum-2-Foot/dp/B00IJ331WY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1416424283&sr=8-2&keywords=anker+usb+3.0+hub. It has only 4 ports and cannot charge devices, but it's more compact and doesn't power connection at all.

Yes, it has an AC plug so all the USB jacks can support devices that require more juice (such as external dock USB hard drives) and the last slot (7th) can also be used as a 1.2 A dedicated charger for standard USB charging. Note: Apple products such as the iPad uses a higher charging requirement and the 9 Port Anker unit has a 10th dedicated 2.1A port for this.

It definitely can't power an apple DVD drive. The company blames apple and that seems to be right. A tech at Other World Computing, who have been contracted by apple to develop drives, told me that Apple elected to not follow the standard IECC spec for USB3 and instead went off and wrote their own driver. This is also why certain Bus powered HDs perform poorly

The USB 2 and 3 specs are international standards. So yes, it will work with windows 8. The more important question is whether your computer has USB 3 ports or just USB 2. If it does not have USB 3 this will still work but you will be paying for speed that you cannot use. Check your computers specifications by looking up the model number on the vendors website, if you do not know for certain. Buy a USB hub (2.0 or 3.0) based on that.

Hey Jim, My version didn't have a mounting option. When I reviewed it, this was one of the suggestions I made. I have put some double sided tape on it and it has been holding up pretty well.

It doesn't work without the power being supplied by the plug in transformer.

Absolutely! I have 3 connected to mine; it is what I bought them for (I have 2, on separate computers).

What interface do the cameras have? Are they newer with usb3 or are they usb2? I could test with a couple dslrs at once for you. However from my experience transfers directly from the camera are slower than a good usb3 card reader.
