While overkill for my needs ... I had a reason to MAYBE have another USB Hub, so I ordered a second of the same model
on April 16, 2015
Have not used it much but has no issue with powering my 1TB External HDD when it's hooked up to my Raspberry Pi 2 ... I have not tested it with my computer yet ( really I got it for a PC in the future with say only 2 USB ports. ... BUT MAINLY I got it for the external HDD and the Pi 2)
Update: While the 7-ports are overkill for my needs (not complaining about it ... "too many" is a good thing ... never know what I may need "down the road") .. I JUST ordered another one ... so instead of using the one i have now for my Pi 2 and (not sure if i will even need this with my laptop... I can just leave a hub in both locations. .. looking at other options and the price of getting a second of this exact model ... it was a "no brainer" for me.
I have not tried all 7 ports occupied and stuff like that, but if my second purchase of the same model is not OBVIOUS ENOUGH ... I'd recommend it 100%
