I have been needing a USB hub for a very long time. So many of my devices use the USB ports that I have to constantly plug and unplug them. I needed a hub, but I was worried about them having enough juice to power everything. No need to worry. This Plugable USB hub can be plugged into an outlet, and I can have all the power I need. So far, so good.

This unit can also be powered exclusively by the computer's USB port, so that it can be used without being plugged in. If you don't have many devices demanding power through the USB connection, this is a nice option and makes the unit more portable.

There are six hubs in the front and four in the back (two of which swivel upwards). I no longer have trouble finding an available USB port. I can keep everything plugged in and they all work as expected. I am happy with this purchase.

____________________________

UPDATE: I've had this hub for a month and the ports on the front side suddenly died. I can still use the ports on the backside. I suspect it's static electricity, since I reached in to handle it and a powerful shock emanated from my finger. I've contacted the manufacturer and will update here with their response.

_____________________________

2ND UPDATE: Warranty service was nearly instantaneous. I emailed them on a weekend and did not expect a response. Not only did I get a response, but they shipped a replacement right away. Talk about service! My new unit is now up and running. I will update again, if necessary.

____________________________

3RD UPDATE: It's been six months since my initial review. My replacement hub is still working well.

I must say, I have two of these USB Hubs by Plugable. I liked the first one so much I got another.
I have been through 5 hubs this year trying to find one that will power my external hard drive and charge my iPhone. It doesn't sound like too much to ask. Well, I finally found what I was looking for in this USB hub.

First the Fit and Finish. Everything looks good on this hub. From the piano black finish to the tasteful, blue, glowing bar and sweet blue light coming out of the ports. It's just enough light to let you find the ports in the dark.

There are 8 fixed ports on this hub and two ports that swivel out. There are 6 fixed ports on one side and 4 ports on the other. The side with 4 has the two swivel ports. From the logo and text printed on the unit, the swivel side is the top and the 6 come out the bottom. I have turned mine vertical and the ports come out the sides. The swivel ports are SO HANDY! I like the fact they put all the ports on just two sides. I dislike the hubs that have ports on 4 sides. Two sides is handy, four is crazy because you have cables coming out of all sides. All the ports are usable on this hub.

I mounted one unit to the wall behind my laptop in my shop. Some 3M Scotch 4010 Heavy Duty Clear Mounting Tape worked well. The other unit is mounted, using the same tape, by my desktop computer in the house.3M Scotch 4010 Heavy Duty Clear Mounting Tape

All in all, I appreciate that this USB hub just works. If you need more power and more ports, this is it. I have been looking at USB hubs since they came out with USB 1. I know quality when I see it and I really like the quality of this USB hub.

As a computer engineer with many, many USB peripherals I could not be happier with this hub. This hub provides very easy access to 10 ports that can sit right there on your desk- no more getting up and searching for a free rear port (if your front ports are already full of course). It works very well without the power supply when devices connected to it are self powered (printers, external HDDs, etc), but don't expect to be able to run all of your USB powered devices (iPods for example) from this hub without it being plugged in to its own outlet. The glowing blue light on top is a very nice aesthetic which also illuminates the inside of the ports (except the two pivoting ports) providing for easy visibility in the dark. I highly recommend this hub.

First, let me say that even though my rating for it isn't that great, the product does work really well. Devices as all recognized quickly and transfer speeds for flash drives and external hard drives are good (for USB 2.0). Additionally, the USB ports provide enough power for multiple, USB-powered devices (i.e. external hard drives without their own power cable, USB fans, etc). Also, the space between USB ports is adequate, as I have not have had issues so far with plugging in various flash drives next to each other. If you are going to keep this HUB somewhere out of sight, then I would say it's a great buy. If you're going to keep it on your desk, then keep reading and I'll tell you what I didn't like about it.

My main issue with this hub, is the layout of it. The power cable and the USB cable for the device connect to the back of the device. Next to them, are two regular USB ports, as well as two vertically swiveling USB connections that are useful for something like a flash drive (I haven't figured out what other use the swivel feature may provide yet for another USB device). On the front of the drive there are six USB ports. Aside from USB flash drives and maybe wireless keyboard/mouse receivers...I feel that the majority of USB devices that people are going to use with these probably have cables attached to them. So with the front of the hub having six ports, and the two swivel ports being on the back of the drive...I think it's likely that most people will have a mess of wires coming out of the front of the hub if they want to use all the ports. If you want to keep the hub on your desk, this may not be the best solution. I think it may have been better if it was designed with the power and USB cable connected to the side of the hub.
