But there a catch! Notice that this particular hub employs a right-angle plug at the end of its permanently attached connecting cable. If you have a laptop with a row of horizontal USB ports, the right-angle design will probably block two precious ports. Most desktop machines, on the other hand, have vertical USB ports, making a right-angle connection feasible. The only problem is that the shortness of the cable attached to these small, portable hubs will, when used in conjunction with a desktop machine, cause your USB devices to be suspended in mid-air, hanging off the back of your screen.
It's inexpensive, and it's potentially perfect--for the right buyer. (It's an ideal fit for a Mac Air, which has only a single USB port per side).
I like the round format. I used to have a rectangular hub with the ports all in a line and sometimes it was a tight squeeze. This one has lots of space around each port.
Color didn't matter to me, but FYI I'd say it's one shade towards cranberry from fire engine red.

Its more 'cranberry' red then the picture shows.
Works with USB 1.1 and 2.0 devices. I've used it to sync both my iPhone and Android devices(phones/tablet), access various USB drives(thumb & HDD) with no issues.
Cons: After 4 months it now says unrecognized device when plugged into any computer. Tried on 5 different computers at work and none recognize it. Also the warranty only covers shipping to you, therefore shipping would cost close to just buying a new one at the price I bought it, which was $6. Also the right angle plug can be a problem for some as it is possible to block ports. My laptop has two USB on one side and one USB on the other. Two of the ports work fine with the right angle plug, but the third would block the other USB on the same side. So not really a problem for me as I have two spots to put it without blocking ports.
I use this at work on my laptop at work where I need to connect more than 3 USB devices that my laptop includes. It worked flawlessly until yesterday when suddenly all my USB device connected to the hub disappeared. Tried restarting, removing and trying different plugs and even different computers all now say unrecognized USB device. Plugging device directly into the computer still works fine, so it is the hub and not the computer.
For the price you certainly could buy two or three and have one or two just in case it decides to die on you. If you didn't see the other Belkin Travel Hub look it up, it only comes in grey/black, but has 800+ reviews with an average of 4 stars. When I bought this one the other one was much more expensive, but as of now it is $7, so I would personally go with it unless you can't live without it being red.
