    Since my new computer has all the USB ports in the rear, instead of along side - as I had on last computer, I was concerned about having to constantly be pulling the desktop computer around to reach the ports I use frequently for camera connection. In the store, this concern was addressed by directing me to the hub. I did purchase it and it is set up at the front base of my computer. It resolves the concern about yanking the computer about; but it isn't exactly "easy." Not only does it not grip the desktop, but it actually needs to be lifted in order to plug in a cord -- it's so low that the keyboard is in the way and hands can't easily manipulate the plugging function so close to the table. The USB ports in side of my old computer were a much better setup; but seeing someone thought it wise to make them more difficult to reach, this at least provides a "reachable' solution.

    Complete system right out of the box, everything required up front is in there. Initial setup is fairly painless, menu system is straight ahead, nice bright display, working apps load and come up without a hitch .. In hindsight- going on friendly suggestion and with due respect to the hardware, I'd probably do better to forego the inclusive drive encryption .. Chosen enhancements include a Bluetooth-capable mouse, a 1GHz Cat5 to type-C network dongle, an AV subscription (absolutely) and a protection plan .. In simple terms, I'm good to go.

    A Solid Option, But At What Cost?

    There isn't much to say about this hub's function. It does the job. It allows you to connect 4 devices without trouble. I currently have my mouse, keyboard, wireless headset dongle, and a film scanner plugged into it, and it works with no issue. The only problem is that if you can wait, Anker has excellently reviewed devices for cheaper. So make your choice based on that, because there are no problems with either device.

    This has been my utmost best purchase in a while. I work from home from time to time, soooooooo My laptop is not enough. I needed a bigger screen and two of them. So I connected my wireless keys and mouse to this hub and connected it to the laptop. Makes life simple and easy and since it is powered, I plugged in my wireless charger for my phone and if needed, an extra USB port. Best purchase for sure.

    Got this hub to connect a Logitech G810 Orion to a KVM switch. Due to the extra power requirements of this keyboard, the KVM switch needed to be out of the emulated mode and then the mouse port is used as a port for a powered hub. This is where I used this hub. Connect the keyboard and mouse to it and connect it to the KVM, Viola. KVM works like a charm. I had tried a USB 3.0 hub before this and it failed to work. Not all hubs are the same. This one is simple and does nothing fancy. It just works. It includes a power adapter.

    Simple Solution to Ordinary Problem

    My (new) MacBook Air is great, but has limited USB ports available. I needed to expand that, in order to add peripherals (like a Passport backup storage solution). The Insignia 4-port solution was such a simple choice! Who knew it was this easy (and reasonable) to solve a common limitation. The staff at my local Best Buy recommended the simple, elegant solution. I am using 2 USB ports for printer and backup connection, and now have 2 extra USB ports, which makes using Memory sticks for portable file sharing so much easier.

    Hub for Raspberry Pi

    Had a travel hub, but I needed an affordable POWERED hub for the Raspberry Pi. I didn't need it to be fancy. I went everywhere and couldn't find one. Then went in Best Buy, and looked everywhere twice, and couldn't find one. Finally someone walked out of the back, and asked if I needed help. I told him what I needed, and he took me about five feet away to somewhere I miraculously hadn't looked. For $15 he found exactly what I was looking for. Worked great.

    I work in a small office with multiple devices. (2 mobile phones, a wireless hotspot device, a tablet and a wireless bluetooth earpiece. Before I purchased this HUB, I was only able to charge two devices at a time. Ridiculous because I would run out of juice early in the day! Now, since I purchased this HUB, I am able to charge anywhere from one to four devices at one time and stay in touch with my company's needs.

    I was looking for a multiport usb hub for my nightstand in my bedroom. I have multiple usb devices that I charge while I am sleeping including my phone, scosche heart rate monitor and my Garmin watch. I had a power strip with multiple bricks plugged into it, but they kept coming unplugged and it was taking up a lot of space. This was exactly what I was looking for. I used some velcro and mounted it on my nightstand and it charges everything at once.

    I had purchased this USB 2.0 Hub during my trip to Pennsylvania because I needed more ports for my laptop and all I have to say is that it works as advertised and the price is reasonable. If you're looking to add more USB ports to your existing computer or electronic device, then I recommend giving this particular item a try.

    Thanks to this device, I no longer have to feel around the back of my computer to find an open port. Having four ports staring me in the face makes it so much more convenient for charging and plugging in thumb drives and other USB interfacing devices.

    Didn't know what I needed or what it was called. Blue Shirt knew what I needed and I am grateful for the suggestion. Insignia products seem to be luck for me. A couple of Bluetooth Speakers and now this. Great quality for what I needed and the Insignia support people have been awesome. Keeps me from having to call family members for help. LOL So they think i know more that I do. Insignia all the way when I need a product from Best Buy

    I have tried everything to make this thing work. It will not recognize any of my USB drives. What a waste of $20. I know the USB drives are in working order because when I plug them directly into the computer they are recognized This was recommended by a BBY employee. I noticed now that it says it is for up to Windows 8. I have 10. I never thought to ask if it would work with 10. The employee should have asked me.

    Seeing that we use the 4 port hubs that I purchased in a very technologically advanced dental practice to allow for our soft ware for imaging, digital x-rays, dental software and Microsoft to connect together and run efficiently in each paperless operatory. This very ;ow priced unit helps us run our practice, provide exceptional ca re and effective treatment plans, images, and intra oral photos as simply and timely as one would wish for.

    My former laptop had numerous USB ports. My new laptop does not. The Insignia™ - 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub - Black affords me the luxury of using all my devices. It is a much needed device that alleviates the need for laptops and tablets to have a plethora of unnecessary usb ports. Very innovative product.

    Needed for Surface 3

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    The base surface 3, not the surface 3 pro, does not provide enough power to it's usb port to support certain usb devices. Because of this, I had to buy this port hub in order to support a 32gb PNY usb that I've been using for music in my truck. This port hub does exactly what it is meant to and I haven't had any problems with it at all. I just wish the surface 3 wouldn't require this for compatibility with usbs.

    I am not sure if it is my computer which is a piece of Junk or if it is the USP ports.. probably the computer since there is only one port that makes connections... DO NOT BUY ASUS... total junk and the price was above what I normally pay for a computer but it had Windows 7 and that is what I needed at the time.. The hub is very attractive and does give access to USB without having to disconnect your 1 plug!!

    I had purchased this 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub to supplement my laptop while I was out of state far away from home. After connecting it via USB, it was recognized and I was up and running with more USB ports in no time. For the price and its purpose, it just works!

    This Product overall has a great size for any desk or top of computer, fits well not in the way of anything and makes connecting and disconnecting your temporary connected devices from your computer easy and convenient. the connection cord is a little short and could be longer so if your going to need it more then 18" from your computer make sure you buy a longer cable to get it where you need it.
