USB Heaven. I've owned quite a few USB hubs in my many years of using computers for business and home use. What I like about this one is the style: Its vertical and the cables fall inline one behind the other. Most of the ones I've had took up too much space and spread the cables in all kinds of directions.
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.
