From the Manufacturer
Stackable, reversible design looks good and saves space. View larger.
Connect up to four peripherals. View larger.
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.
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.

Top Customer Reviews
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.)
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.
EDIT: So after having this USB hub for a while I realized that if you do not keep it stationary and accidentally bump it you will screw up any connections made. I will continue to use it as I only connect peripherals and NOT my backupdrive which I have hardwired to my PC.
