    Works as it should

    I usually use this on my Surface Pro 4. It works as it should. One unexpected bonus is that the Kensington Case on my Surface prevents my Flash drives from plugging all the way in and this HUB does does not have that issue allowing me to use my flash drives. I would like a smaller one to use on the go though.

    My laptop has only two USB ports and I've been alternating plugging in two external hard drives, a wireless mouse and other stuff. I LOVE this gizmo! It allows me to keep my hard drives & my mouse plugged in all the time and still leave an open port for my printer and other big items. Wish I'd known about it years ago!

    This item works great. I just wish the cable to connect to my laptop was longer by about 6". the 2" length is not enough to rest on the desk when the laptop is elevated. A longer cable from laptop USB port to the hub would alleviate strain on the USB port. Otherwise, this is a great little hub.

    I use the device to increase my computers capabilities. I can have my mouse attached and several jump drives connected at the same time. Many jump drives have different shapes that prevent them from being connected to the computer simultaneous. The hub with wider separation between ports solves that problem

    Not much to review, except when I plug my iPhone in to sync or upload pictures my computer doesn't seem to recognize it as being plugged in. I finally got it to sync but not load to Photos. Have to plug directly into computer. Don't know how other things will work. This is on a Mac.

    Inexpensive solution for add'l Suface usb ports

    This worked well with my Microsoft surface to provide sub ports for external use dvd drive and sub mouse connectivity. Although it helps with portability, the short cable causes the entire contraption to dangle in the air. The box is small but I believe there are smaller available options. Works as expected.

    I purchased this usb hub to use with a tablet that only had 1 USB port. With it I am able to connect a mouse, keyboard and my portable hdd when I have the tablet connected to a TV via Hdmi. Speed is limited to USB 2.0, but not an issue since my portable hard drives are all USB 2.0 anyway. Working great so far!

    Good But Not Great

    I'm sure this product does what it intends to: it offers two USB ports in a compact design. But (and again, this may be my fault for not reading the box), the cord is REALLY short. I purchased this to use with my Surface Pro 3, and it's not even long enough to reach the table. Otherwise, it's pretty useful.

    I was not looking for this product, but was intrigued when I saw it, most tablets today offer a single USB port, limiting the number of devices I could use with my Surface tablet. Now I can connect my external HD nd my receiver for the wireless mouse and keyboard as well as attach my external DVD device!

    I got it to connect a USB printer to my Lenovo stick PC (it has only one USB port, and it was used for mouse/keyboard combo). With this little thing I can connect the printer, plus the additional keyboard and mouse while keeping the original Lenovo handheld keyboard combo.

    Portable, but too short of a cord.

    I purchased this to have additional USB ports for some accessories that I use with my computer. It may have not been the right one for the intended use I had in mind. I will continue to use it until I find the right one I need. It is very portable however, and I intend to use it in my travels.

    Great USB hub for laptops with minimal ports

    My new laptop didn't come with many USB ports and this tool helps me to connect all my gadgets. One recommendation for the manufacturer would be to make the length of the cord that plugs into your computer a little longer so that the hub is more reachable on the side of a laptop with only rear USB ports.

    The Insignia USB 2.0 hub does the job.

    I have a Surface Pro 3, and it only has one USB port. I purchased the Insignia hub as a quick way to expand my options with the computer. It does the job. The cord on the Insignia should be longer. I hangs from the USB port on the Surface. I bought a docking station, and no longer use the Insignia.

    This does exactly what it needs to do without any extra frills. I have a surface pro 3 and this works great for giving me access to more usb ports. My only complaint is that the cord that connects to your pc (or whatever you are using) is a bit too short so it can awkwardly dangle.

    Using with Game Console

    This works well for my specific use. I'm using this hub on a Wii-U to connect two game "portals" (Lego Dimensions and Skylanders Imaginators) into one USB port on the game-console. The other USB port on the Wii-U is being used to connect an external hard drive for game-file storage.

    IF an unpowered hub is all you need, this will get the job done. Blue LED light is a nice extra to let you know its working. Bought this to hook KB / Mouse / Printer to all one port on laptop to save time instead of having to plug in each one, and it frees up ports for HD drives / iPad / Phone / etc.

    If you're looking for the best little USB hub, you'll find it with the 4-port Insignia USB hub. It is self contain and quite reliable. I have fielded more than 50 over the last year with zero failures. Highly recommend.

    I have a PC laptop with only 1 USB port and I need that for my scanner. This was the perfect solution for the external hard drives that I need to scan to, and it packs up nice and compact when not in use.

    I had an accident with my lap top resulting in 2 of the 3 USB ports being unusable. I went to Best Buy thinking I'm going to need a new computer with at least 3 USB ports. I mentioned this to the salesman and he suggested this hub... it did the treat, works great, saved me a bunch of money.
