    I bought this hoping I could use it on my bedside table to charge my watch and my tablet. It charges the watch just fine but doesn't even come close to charging the tablet, even when it's off. I'm sure it's fine for other things but just not for my purposes. Lost the receipt and the packaging so I am just going to keep it. Maybe it will work on another tablet some day.

    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!

    Insignia, may seem like it's a cheap product only cause it is the cheapest but it works. Just like the most expensive expansion hub you could waste your money on. Please don't it works, insignia and other off brand products work. You don't need to pay for the Brand name stuff just because. Same warranty period as the best products out there. Save your time without worrying.

    Review based on about two month usage.

    Having used this 4-port USB casually for only two months, it has worked without fail. Considering the very low cost of this unit my perspective is that it probably is a throw-away whenever it does fail and keep in mind that if a person has low expectations that person will not be disappointed. In this day and age $20 is not a fortune.

    I needed a USB hub because my laptop only had three USB ports and I needed to plug various devices in including needing the ability to charge my Fitbit, Kindle, and GPS when it was time to update. This USB hub was cheap enough and the reviews were mostly positive so I decided to buy it. The hub works as advertised and I have no problems so far.

    I kept buying the cheap hubs for $5 from Five Below, they would work for a few days and then start malfunctioning. I bought this one, not so much money, yet it is working like a dream. My devices are not turning off and on like they did with the cheap hub, they are just working and working and working. Ya get what you pay for! Buy it! It's worth the money.

    Expanding USB

    This works great for what I needed it for which was to connect more items to our PS4 at the same time to keep things charged up and play rockband with more microphones also. Just in case you wonder this will not allow you to connect an external hard drive for expanded storage for the system, you will have to use direct PS4 usb.

    I purchased this item knowing it had a power cord attachment. I debated if I wanted one that was portable also for when I traveled. I didnt read all the features before I left the store and relied on the salesman advice and purchase it. When I got home the hub had a power cord and the usb adapter so I could travel with it and charge from my laptop.

    I purchased this to use at work so I would have three monitors. It worked very well in the beginning but as I hooked and unhooked my laptop to it daily it would glitch from time to time and would have to be reset with the monitors. I think it would be fine for home use but not business

    This 4-port hub works, and it works well. I purchased it to work with my MacBook to charge my multiple mobile devices. It's nice to be able to plug in my watch, phone, and ipad all at the same time. This comes with a wall wart power supply as well. this is a nice addition since I do not want to be forced to always charge my devices with my computer out.

    Charging station - Not iphone compatible

    Posted
    emilyrose

    I'm using this as a charging station. It works great with my kindle, but does not work with my iPhone 4 docking station. The docking station works when the USB is plugged into an adapter at the wall, but not when the USB is plugged into the hub. The docking station light will come on, signaling power, but there must not be enough juice to give a charge.

    Truly Plug n Play

    How often have you been disappointed when a product described as being Plug n Play isn't? This USB hub worked right out of the box. Receivers for a mouse and wireless key board plus a 1TB external HD and a Targus laptop cooling fan occupy the four ports and work just fine. Another great product from Insignia!

    Solid, basic USB hub

    Decent price, works as expected. If you need to add a few more USB port to your computer, this is an economical way to do it. Just be aware that it's USB 2.0 (versus 3.0), so it may not be fast enough to connect a 1080p webcam or high-speed storage device.

    I bought this to plug in 3 dongles for the HTC Vive full body trackers. Plugging in the dongles directly to my PC would have had some unwanted power drain so having this 4 port 2.0 USB splitter that has its own power supply resolved every issue I was looking to eliminate.

    I have a number of external hard drives that I was looking to connect to my phone and/or my tablet through the USB-C port. But there wasn't enough power coming out of the port to spin the drives. Now I can connect all the drives to this hub, and this hub to my phone (through an adapter) and it works like a charm!

    I have had good success with this hub except for 1 experience; I have an external speaker phone and when I connect through this hub the call quality is very poor. My end of the call is not bad but people on the other end of the call complained about echoing and skipping. I use the hub for all other USB connections with no issue.

    I purchased this device so I could hook my Game systems to my new (cheap) TV. I only had one HDMI port available and needed this to be able to play games and watch TV without constantly changing cables. It works great and will switch ports automatically when a device turns on.

    I use this for the PS4 to connect multiple items,keyboard, mouse, skylanders hub, rockband stuff, etc. It will not allow an external hard drive to be used on the PS4 through the hub. I didn't expect that but wanted to let others know that information.

    I bought Insignia™ - 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub to take on the road while working. Charging up to four devices while only using one electrical outlet, which are normally at a premium in hotel rooms, is essential when working with multiple portable devices. It is portable and does not take much room in a backpack.
