    Bought for a PS4

    My son has a nice pair of wireless Afterglow headphones that he purchased for use with his PS3. But when we upgraded to a PS4 he couldn't use them because the plug adaptor didn't fit into the USB port. We bought this hub to use as a small extension so the his headset could be used in the PS4 and it works great. He is also able to use the extra ports to charge his devises while he plays and there is no issue doing such.

    An unplanned purchase

    I needed it as when I purchased a wireless keyboard, the sales person did not tell me that the logitch wireless mouse would not work with the keyboard, as they had been purchased seperately. Haveing only 2 ports on my laptop, the mouse uses one and the keyboard uses the other. Any other device I wanted to connect had to displace either the mouse or keyboard. Solution, purchase another "hub port", which I hadn't planned on.

    This unit worked fine initially, giving me additional USB ports for my laptop. The cord was a little short, but acceptable. Unfortunately after about 3 weeks the white plastic portion of the portts on one side broke free when connecting a cord, and within two days the other ports became inoperative also. The unit needs to be sturdier in construction and will be replaced with a different item.

    I bought this so that I could transfer by videos I take of my daughter's Basketball games from my iPhone to my sandisk fob, then from my sandisk fob to my 2TB storage device. This product allows me to go directly from sandisk fob to 2 TB storage without having to download it on to my Microsoft surface. This is much more convenient and resolves to problem of not having enough disc space to download videos to my computer.

    Had a problem plugging into my USB ports with more that one item at a time. The ports on my laptop were too close together to accommodate two USB cords at once. Looked to a solution and initially found a two-port adapter, but this four-port has two ports on either end, permitting wider adapters such as Wifi range extenders to be attached on one side and other USB devices on the other.

    I only had two USB ports on my laptop. This 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub allowed me to have my printer and wireless mouse always hooked up via USB ports. I was able to use the 4-port to add a USB thumb drive with no problem. However, when I tried to add my Bluetooth USB connector to the hub, my computer froze up. However I was able to put the USB Bluetooth connector in my extra USB port and everything was OK.

    When my laptop's USB 3.0 ports stopped working, I was left with one 2.0 port and multiple items to plug into it. The Geek Squad recommended the Insignia 4 Port Hub as the solution to my problem. It worked great !!! I plugged it in and my computer immediately recognized it and all the devices plugged into it (printer, internet cable, external hard drive). It is well worth many times its price.

    I needed a few extra USB 2.0 spots on my computer for a few desk peripherals and this little hub works perfectly. I have it plugged into the back of my computer where it's out of the way and have had no issues with it. Worked upon first use!

    My original USB Port was light weight plastic. It cracked and the cords would slip out. I needed a new one. Best Buy has many to shop for. This one weights twice as much with feet that prevent sliding and is a solid piece of hardware. the ports are solid and it works Great! The only con is the the cord is too short!

    I purchased this for an in-dash installation of a Nexus 7 2013. The other two hubs I bought for this did not work. The hub is compact and would be great for tossing in your travel bag. I did not do any power testing on it to see if it could handle a large number of devices. It didn't matter for my project but the ports are upside down so if you had it right side up on your desk, your flash drive will be upside down.

    My new PC suffered reduced options due to the new push to make thinner, lighter machines. Therefore I was reduced to a machine with only 2 USB ports and no CD/DVD drive. I purchased this multiple port USB to allow me to use a wireless mouse and keyboard while still having access for drives, flash drives and any other USB accessories I need. Sometimes progress is regressive.

    Plug-and-use solution for shortage of USB ports

    Why do computer manufacturers refuse to equip their machines with an adequate number of USB ports? Fortunately this Insignia hub provides an economical fix that allows me to use my wireless mouse, have my backup drive plugged in AND use a flash drive all at the same time -- with 3 ports to spare!

    It works, that's really all I care about. I bought 2, one for me and one for a friend. It's the first memory card reader I've ever used. Previously I attached my camera to the computer via USB hook up. And I used the card in a printer I have. The reader allows an easy connection to the computer where it can be imported directly to a graphics program to be manipulated and saved.

    My Surface only has one USB port! This port allows me to add three more connections. One is my wireless mouse/keyboard. I can then attach my iPhone and iPad for recharging and syncing at the same time, or attach a printer and still use my mouse. I like the nifty way one can tuck the cord and USB connection back into the body of the port when transporting my Surfact.

    I've had several items that I have tried over a period of time. Some have been okay for while but didn't fit my use after time. This device will most likely be one of the better ones I've used. For one thing it doesn't take up a lot of space with the cord which can be irritating.

    affordable. But short cord

    Affordable usb hub. I bought two of them. One for my dell labtop and one for my wife's surface pro. The only issue is that the connection cord is a bit short for the surface pro. The hub hangs from the port because the cord is too short to reach the desk. Not a huge deal but it looks a little goofy. The lightweight and size make up for the short cord which makes it easier to travel with.

    This USB 2.0 quad-port works perfectly straight out of the packaging. I would have given it a 5-star rating except for one thing: the too-short cord connecting to the computer. It's only two inches long, greatly restricting where it can be placed. My choice was putting it over a fan or letting it dangle in front of the computer. That cost the rating one star.

    hard to reach USB ports now accessible

    My USB ports could be a little cumbersome to access depending on how I was using my laptop. Now I have expanded # of ports + made it a lot easier to access. Device feels a little flimsy, but does fine for my needs, especially considering what I paid for it. My other USB ports are filled with dongles and wireless receivers, so now I have easy access for removable storage devices.

    This hub was used in my trucks entertainment system, to connect multiple USB devices to a Kenwood head unit. I needed solid reliability and it works great. Promised cut sheets and re-install assistance from Cruchfield online were not so reliable, a disgrace from a company selling its self as customer centric, huh trust local, buy from Best Buy if you want service promises fulfilled.

    I use it for ease of access for USB connections on my customers’ computers. It makes plugging in multiple items easy and reachable. It is plug and play. It works without having to wait for a driver to install. The cord storage is also nice so it fits snuggly in my work bag.
