    Three weeks in and it doesn't work?!?

    • Written by from Calgary

    I've had this spotty hub for a whole 20 days, and the results have been less than desirable. Biggest issue is dropping connectivity with my iMac. I looked on their website and it mentions compatibility with laptops, but no mention of not being compatible with iMac - strange. It will connect when you first plug in a device, then drops the connection mid transfer. I got it because I was tired of always reaching behind the iMac to access the USB ports, but dropping the transfer is a bigger hassle. Just chatted with the Belkin support and they're sending a replacement.

    Got very hot and failed

    • Written by from Arlington

    After several months of occasional use, this USB hub failed to connect any USB device, even mice, to Mac or PC. Its temperature was normal when it worked, but after it failed it was hot whenever plugged into a computer. The Belkin website had no technical advice for these problems.

    Terrible Product

    • Written by from Cypress

    Bought this today to get some extra USB space for my MacBook Pro. I got home and hooked it up and plugged in two external harddrives and my flashdrive. I look at my computer fo see that none of them have showed up. I plug all three into a separate computer, and all three are fried. This comes with a power supply, and must've given too much power, so now I have three drives with important data on them GONE FOREVER. Do yourself a favor and don't buy this, it doesn't work and it'll fry your drives, it really deserves less than one star.

    Port failure after less than 6 months

    • Written by from Newark

    Less than 6 months after purchasing this item, 2 of the 4 ports have failed, and the device generates a considerable amount of heat. Very disappointing product overall.

    Not worth buying , can't charge an ipad either

    • Written by from Ottawa

    1. As the fine print says "*This device does not support iPad charging"
    so that renders it useless for 1 of two common devices.
    An iphone 4s it didn't seem to want to charge it.

    2. It's very clunky to have a separate usb and power cable running out of the back of this device.

    3. The device rarely ever sits properly. That's because its so light weight (which is nice) bit then it just flips around and sits odd based on what cables are in it.

    Frankly given its weak powering capability, you may as well stick with a more basic hub.
