    First of all, they hide the fact that it not only has a wall wart, but only a 3' power cable. The only way you can even use this First of all, they hide the fact that it not only has a wall wart, but only a 3' power cable. The only way you can even use this thing, unless you have a power outlet within 2 1/2' of your hub, is to get an extension cord. That just looks horrible. Then, the connections aren't on the back, they're on the side. So, no matter how hard you try, your desk looks like a jumbled mess. For $60, I expect more. Bad call Belkin, and bad call Apple Store for selling this junk. I never even tried it, so I cannot tell you if it even works. I'm taking it back at lunch!

Style-wise it looks great. I don't like the power plug and master usb port connecting to the side... that was a bad move, it should be in the back unless you don't care how your desk looks. Also, the power plug is 3'3" not a deal-breaker but way too short. I'll be making the hour long drive back to apple to return this as soon as I can.

A significant speed increase over my USB 2.0 previous hub. No complaints.

    Unfortunately, all the This is an inexpensive USB 3 hub that does the basic job,
    But also has some significant inconveniences.
    Unfortunately, all the available USB 3 hubs I've tried have various design issues, and this one's no exception.
    Given the deficit of USB ports and USB power on the iMac, we're desperately awaiting a well-designed, adequately powered USB 3 hub.

    PROS:
    1. Cheap
    2. Works (basically) with USB 3 devices and basic USB 1 devices like keyboards etc.
    3. Portable users will like its very light weight (bad for desktop use).


    CONS:
    1. Does not recognize any brand of USB 2 memory stick that I've tried.
    So I need an additional USB 2 hub for sticks I use on both newer and older Macs or that I get from clients.

    2. Only has 4 ports.
    Really, with the iMac's deficit of ports, unless you're Grandma Fizbin using your Mac to Facetime your granddaughter,
    you're going to need more.

    3. Very inconvenient design unless you're going portable:
    • All the ports are on the same side, so there's no forward facing port for quick use
    (Belkin had an excellent USB 2 hub with dual direction ports)
    • Both the power and USB-to-Mac cables are on the same side so, no matter which way you point the device,
    you get cables all over your desk, which is a nuisance if you actually work for a living.
    • The device is so light that it often gets pulled down behind the desk by the weight of the USB cables.

    4. Not robustly powered.
    I have 2 of these hubs and can only use them with low-draw devices.
    Even with those, I need to be careful abut how many devices I plug in.
    So it becomes a dance of mixing and matching devices to each hub to get the magic formula.

    5. Ports feel cheaply made - USB plugs often get stuck in the port and have to be wiggled out.
    This makes it a pain for using with USB sticks


    All in all, this is a device that will meet your needs (sort of) while you wait for a much better product (like Belkin's excellent multi-port USB 2 hub with both top and back facing ports.)

    My only complaint is PURE VANITY, which means I could probably have given this a "5"... couldn't they have made the cord come out the back? For us ultra-fussy iMac users, this means that no matter what there's an ugly cord laying on our desk.

    Although, now that I've said it, they probably moved it to the side as the result of a different, ultra-fussy iMac user... Ha!

    The thing works well and should probably have had 5 stars instead of 4. You won't be sorry buying it, so long as you carefully read the description regarding powered devices.
