So far, so good. My graphics tablet isn't always recognized and I occasionally have to power off the hub for it to work, but everything thing else seems to work fine (the tablet is several years old so that could be the issue). As for the speed of the hub, I don't know specifics but my USB 2.0 external drive blazes along like it should (one of the reasons I needed a new hub). I've bought Belkin hubs in the past and have always had good luck with them. The two ports on top are very convenient for connecting a camera or other device that you don't keep permanently hooked up. My only suggestion would be for Belkin to offer a stand so that it could sit vertically and take up a bit less space. I'm thinking of attaching it to the side of my desk with Velcro.
After a few years, I had to plug and unplug things to get them to work again, so I finally replaced this hub.
I bought this 8 months ago to replace my USB 1.0 hub and because I needed more outlets. I have a Mac G4 Quicksilver and it's quite compatable.
When I first hooked it up, I did have some issues getting it to recognize my iPod Shuffle, but that eventually worked itself out (sorry, don't remember why, but I think it was just a reboot issue or iTunes update). I recently moved and had to rehook everything up and it went very smoothly. It works w/ my camera, my Mac mouse, my Kensington trackball wireless mouse, my Shuffle (love the verticle USB inputs on this thing!), my thumbdrive (again with the useful verticle input design!), my Epson scanner from 2001, my old USB hub can be connected to it and runs, and my external zip drive.
All in all, so far so good!
We have six computers in our house and we own 3 of these Belkin Hi Speed USB Ports.
I don't know all the technical aspects of why we Love them but my son does and he would not buy anything else.
We just purchased our third one on Amazon and he had me search for this particular model.
We had others in the past some of which were cheaper,
but in the computer world I noticed you get what you pay for,
so why buy stuff that that is either low quality or does not last.
I found the best price on Amazon
