This is what I've been looking for. The U222-007-R 7 port hub is small, fits almost anywhere and looks great. When I did a search for best Hubs it came back as highest rated due to it's durability and that's what I want, something that will last a long time. It also couldn't have been simpler to set up. I wish all devices were this well thought out. Count me a Tripp Lite fan!
For use with an Android Stick. I bought this unit because I had installed an MK-808 Android stick on my monitor and wanted to obtain more functionality with it. After searching the forums for information I decided on buying a powered USB hub and further research showed that this was the one to buy...am I glad I did. Quite a few people stated they were having trouble installing an external USB drive but I succeeded, first time, in hooking up a 1.5 terabyte hard drive formatted HTFS. There is no doubt this will be my selection whenever I need another hub!
First one worked so well I bought another one two days later. Did some research and based on some independent reviews decided to purchase this Tripp-Lite USB hub in order to alleviate some USB issues on my machine ... worked exactly as advertised - even better. Very pleased with the design, construction and performance ... and the added bonus of surge protection ... highly recommend it to anyone looking for a USB hub ...
I would purchase another in a second. This is a very nice hub. I plugged it in, added my peripherals and everything was up and running. I only wish it had a bit more weight to its base so it would stay put on my desktop a little better. Not really a problem though. I really like the five ports out the back side. I don't need to see them as they are full of my equipment. Having two facing forward allows me to easily plug in a flash drive or another seldom used peripheral. I like this hub, and would purchase again.
Compact, Space saving, Easy to set up... I purchased this to add extra usb ports to my new iMac desktop Computer. I was surprised just how small the footprint of this really was....it looked larger in the picture. I took it out of the box, plugged in the ac adapter and then into my computer and away we went. I was able to plug in printer, scanner, and 2 backup hdd's as well as well as charge my iPhone. Fantastic!!!! It doesn't get any easier than that unless tripp lite sends a techie to plug it in for me!!! Thank you.
Great Product. This hub is perfect for the following reasons: 1. Small footprint so it won't take up a lot of desk space. 2. 7 powered USB ports so no need to worry about over tasking your onboard USB power limitations. 3. 4ft USB cable so placing your hub where you want it isn't a problem. 4. Two handy up front USB ports. 5. Did I say it was compact! : ) Worth every penny I spend on it!
