    Familiar sccessory with no surprise failings

    A simple workhorse accessory that can be used to overcome traffic jams on desktop computers especially now that dedicated mouse connectors & ports and dedicated keyboard connectors & ports have given way to USB fittings that increase competition for the number of native USB ports on the CPU. No separate power source required. The only drawbacks I can find are (1) this is strictly a USB 2.0 accessory, and (2) the 2.5"-3" cable connecting the hub to a USB port is inconveniently short for connection to a desktop tower...it dangles, placing stress on the cable and the USB connector at the end of the cable. No doubt it will hold up fine when attached to a laptop computer perched on a table top. Product seems to be solid enough, and durable enough, but I haven't been using it for very long.

    It's working so far. I don't have as much as 50 words, all I can say is that, it's doing its job so far. Without it, we can't plug any other device to the computer. I just wish the outlets came built in the computer, like before, instead of, going to spend more money to buy something that used to be on the computer in the first place, especially with a $1500 computer that I bought. By trying to minimize wires plugged into the computer, now we are plugging more wires in, just to use it. I also had to buy an external disk player! Go figure!! I am trying to figure out why things are being removed from the computer, then you have to spend all this money to buy these same devices, to use it to its full capacity!

    Successful end to adapting to product already on hand. When a household pc failed, was reluctant to purchase another pc when I already had one as well as a Surface tablet. Bought a monitor that I could use instead but ran into a problem with being able to use a separate wireless keyboard and a memory usb at the same time (and there was only one usb port on the Surface. This handy dandy accessory was used to go into that port and with the 4 ports on it I was able to plug in the wireless keyboard dongle and the memory usb. Success! And a reasonable price to do so!

    I bought the USB 2.0 hub because my new HP laptop has only one USB port. The hub works exactly as expected. It's very handy and at good price. I didn't need/want the fancier powered USB 3 version. The only downside has been that the pigtail is not very flexible. I'd like it better if the pigtail was a bit more flexible. On one machine the USB port is horizontal. On some other computers I have, it's vertical. Either way, the four additional USB ports have been helpful.

    It even has a magnet on it to hold the cable closed when not in use, which protects the cable and USB plug from damage when not in use. And it needs to external power source like many do, which means it is easy to use, doesn't get too hot, and has one less power pack to plug in. Just wish there were a few more to choose from--there was only this one and one other that was way too fancy and overpriced at $60. But I might have gone a little better if there had been some other more mid-priced options. Just saying--but no complaints on this one--works fine--exactly as it's supposed to work.

    Targus 2.0 Hub Rocks!

    I am delighted that a BestBuy employee recommended this Targus product! Not being a high-tech guy and new to using a monitor with my recently purchased HP Spectre laptop, a wireless keyboard, a wireless mouse, and wireless headphones, this Targus 4-port USB 2.0 hub solved my problem of multiple cables running all over my study desk area. So I have a clean and uncluttered area now! And this hub supports high-speed data transfers up to 480 Mbps! The attached USB cable allows quick plug-and-play connectivity. It is great!

    4 Port USB Hub Black

    This was a replacement purchase for a cheaply made hub that was unreliable. It is well made, solid, locks the USB connectors tightly and so far has performed perfectly. No plugging in and out trying to get a good connection. I'd give it a five except for two small points, (1) I like a small LED power light so I know it is working, and (2) I wish the hub-to-computer connecter cable was a bit longer.

    Great value and worked well on PS4

    We purchased a PS4 hub and realized that it isn't compatible with external hard drives because USB hubs can't pass the power on to the hard drive. This hub worked extremely well for what we needed. We plugged the hard drive directly into the PS4 and the hub into the 2nd port. Now we have plenty of ports and great performance. This hub is also great for anyone who needs more ports on their PC or laptop but also works well for the PS4.

    Works Just Like It Should!

    This is a great little portable hub. It's built so that you can easily attach USB cords without the hassle of fit issues. Its well constructed. The one and only downside is the length of the cable going to the computer....it is much shorter than it really should be...about 4 inches. Setup is a breeze, and it has so far performed at or above expectations. Other than the one issue with the cable length, everything about it is good. I would highly recommend this hub.

    Works well for a compact travel usb hub. Only drawback is usb 2.0 however if you are not worried about transferring a ton of data then this will work. I use it to connect my mouse and keyboard to a monitor at home it does the trick and I have two more additional USB ports for flash drives just don’t expect large data transfers to go super fast. If that’s the case get another one or use the ports on your computer.

    The USB ports on my all in one PC are located on the back and I was tired of turning the monitor around just to plug something in. So I bought this 4 port to plug into the back and I'd have 4 ports available in front of the monitor. Since this was really made for a laptop, the cord isn't quite long enough to wrap around to the front. It kind of dangles off to the side somewhere but it does the job. It's still awkward to plug something in, but not as awkward as turning the monitor around. So I'm pleased.

    I've been looking for a USB splitter for awhile and was going to buy one off Amazon (which was cheaper then this and got decent reviews) but I didn't want to wait for it to ship, so I headed down to my local store and found this. It was on sale and when I got home it was seamless. Worked perfectly for my headsets, wired mouse and external hard drive for my laptop! Haven't tested the speeds, but it honestly gets the job done for me. Overall solid product and not cheapy materials like others.

    This type of device is needed if you have USB 2 or 3 type devices you want to connect to your new 2016+ MacBook pro which utilizes Usb-C connections only! Another one of Apples mistakes for if I new how much trouble and expensive I would bought a 2015 MacBook Pro instead. So if your buying a new MacBook Pro in 2016 or newer you will find your self probably in need of this sort of device. It works

    Compact no fuss USB 2.0 Hub

    Purchased for work, this is a very compact USB 2.0 hub that has an integrated USB cable to plug into your computer. The cable length is minimal, but this is nice if you are using it on a laptop. Due to the cable length, outside of a laptop setup, you may need a USB extension cable. However, for my needs, the compactness was perfect. Works great on Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 with no drivers needed to install. Up and running as soon as I plug it in.

    Has enough for two storage devices, a Targus mat, and a graphics tablet. Those last 2 are very intensive and I've had no problems so far! Against what I thought, the USB port actually had enough power being supplied to it! The cable is actually pretty sturdy so I have no worry of the cable breaking.

    So far I am enjoying my new computer. There are two things that I wish were better: 1. I wish the speakers would be louder. It is hard to hear my Netflix movies, and I have pretty good hearing. 2. I wish that I did not have to look to make sure that I am hitting the right shift key instead of the page up key. The right shift key is too small or not placed right or something, but I never have hit it right yet.

    Needed an inexpensive USB HUB. Found it!

    Needed a portable minimum 4 port USB Hub fir my Lenovo Tablet. Most everything I looked at was over $25.00. I asked a nice Gentleman at the Best Buy Tech Dept. and he directed me to the Targus - 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub in Black. Less than $15. before Tax. Works just fine main connection cord is just long enough so that it does not put pressure on the USB connector in the Lenovo.

    I am a technology teacher. I grade my students' work from their flash drives. I purchased this hub so I could read from four flash drives easily and a bit more quickly than one drive at a time. We are a Mac lab and the USB ports are on the back. This hub does not even come out to the front of the computer. In all fairness, I did not find one with a longer cord. I had hoped that this one would be long enough, though.

    Bought this product before a road trip with my family to simultaneously charge multiple devices on a 12hr drive. On the way to our destination we noticed one of the ports stopped charging, switched chargers and everything but no go. On the way back a second port stopped working.

    I like that this hub is compact and easy to use, it comes out of the box ready to use. right away just plug and ready to go. The cable is well made as well as the rest of the construction of the Hub. I did not need to do anything else other than just plug it. Nice design
