Product Description

Product Description

The D-Link® 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub (DUB-H4) provides four additional USB 2.0 ports to your PC or Mac, allowing you to connect USB devices such as digital cameras, external hard drives, flash drives, and printers. Providing data rates of up to 480Mbps*, this 4-port hub is the ideal solution for transferring data between your computer and external USB storage devices.

Manufacturer's Description

The D-Link DUB-H4 2.0 is a Hi-Speed Universal Serial Bus 2.0 4-port hub with backward compatibility to USB 1.0 and 1.1. It provides an out-of-the-box industry standard that allows connection of up to four USB peripherals or devices to your USB-ready PC or Mac. The D-Link DUB-H4 is targeted at PC and Mac users that are expanding the number of USB ports on their system. The D-Link DUB-H4 2.0 is designed to provide quick and easy access to the four type "A" downstream ports for connecting USB peripherals, devices or other USB hubs. A single type "B" upstream port connects the DUB-H4 to the host computer, or another USB hub enabling up to 127 devices to be connected by cascading multiple hubs. Configured directly by the operating system, the D-Link DUB-H4 2.0 operates seamlessly with both Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh Operating Systems. As a standard USB hub, the D-Link DUB-H4 buffers USB data from any attached peripheral in compliance with USB specifications to provide an invisible extension of the USB bus. Supporting both low speed (1.5 Mbps and 12 Mbps) and Hi-speed (480 Mbps) devices, each port creates a bridge between the peripheral and host computer. Diagnostic LED's located on the top of the device provide power state (self-power) and port status on each port.

5.0 out of 5 stars A competent hub that does the job 22 Aug 2007
Verified Purchase
I've had cheaper USB hubs, but this one is much better than any so far. Firstly, its powered (it needs a power socket), but this means it can deal with power-hungry devices like external USB hard drives, without overloading. You don't have to have the power on for low-power devices like memory sticks.

Secondly its robust - it doesn't fall of the desk all the timen and its got little rubber feet so it doesn't slip about. Its got a full set of indicator lights. OK, its nothing to get that excited about but it does the job with no problems. I'd buy it again, and that's recommendation enough I think.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last 11 Jan 2007
Verified Purchase
Tried quite a few USB hubs and internal PCI cards and have had nothing but problems and have been using ext cables instead of a hub. I thought I`d give it one more go as a 4x1 hub is so much more convenient, AND? Yes this one worked right out of the box, download times from an external hardive and card reader are superb.Works with or without the supplied power adapter but I keep the power on. Neat unit that feels well made. The supplied USB lead is longer than some of the units on the market and twice as thick. The whole thing just feels well made and I`m glad I gave it one more chance.There are cheaper hubs on the market but this time I got what I paid for.

I bought this hub for a slightly unusual reason. I needed to connect two long USB 2.0 cables (over 8 Metres in total) to go from my PC upstairs to a freeview recorder box downstairs. You definitely need additional power for this long a cable run so I decided to buy a powered ('active') USB hub to join the cables.

It has done the job really well. It comes with a PSU so I was up and running straight away. I've never had a dropped connection and performance seems very good. LED indicator lights show activity and status on each port.

It's very neat and compact for a hub - it doesn't take up much desk space and looks nice next to my aluminium PC case. It comes with a quite long USB 2.0 cable to connect it to the PC. It was recognised straight away by Windows XP and 2000 without any messing about.

It works fine in its more traditional role of connecting multiple USB devices to a single port on my PC. I don't bother using its separate PSU for this task and it works fine without it.

All in all, very happy. Even though it's perhaps relatively expensive for a 4 port USB 2.0 hub, I think it's worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the Raspberry Pi 31 July 2012
Verified Purchase
I purchased this USB hub to extend the number of ports available to my Raspberry Pi. It works faultlessly, and I can also use it to supply power to the Pi. It seems solid and well made. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Too much packaging / not clear it is powered 3 April 2008
Just received this (ordered on tuesday morning arrived on wed morn with super saver - not bad!). A few remarks that I think need to be made:

- Far too much packaging - I'm lucky I had it delivered to my place of work otherwise I would have to trek to the delivery office to pick up a 40 x 20 x 15cm size parcel. The router I bought had less cardboard around it, and that needed more 'protection' than this hub! I've noticed this being said in the reviews for a couple of electronics items - Amazon needs to have a look at this.

- Not clear it is one of the powered hubs - I eventually chose this one after dredging through the expanded tech spec. A need-to-know point, especially if, like me, you need to charge items like cameras, iPods etc.

- Dead simple to set up, only 4 steps in the manual (take out of box, plug in power and USb, turn on computer!). Nice long USB cable that looks quite sturdy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job & looks good 10 Sep 2007
Very nice piece of kit.I bought one to replace a cheap ugly thing that looked unnaceptably naff next to my new PC and also didn't work particularly well.OK so its a hub and its hard to get very excited but it seems well built with a bit more substance than some in this price range.Dead easy to set up,so far it has worked very well & its nice looking & compact enough to sit on my desk & look extremely businesslike.Personally I like the compact chunkiness of it plus its great value and it works.What more can you ask of it ?

This USB hub comes with an external power supply so you can use it with your Ipod and mobile phone which all need a power source when connected. Non-powered Hubs would not be able to work with these. It works fine with my Mac on OSX and i'm sure it's fine with Window's P.C.'s as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job. 17 May 2007
Bought the D-Link as a replacement for a faulty Belkin 7 port hub and it works fine. My only minor complaint is that the I would have preferred all the connections (power, USB 'B' port and the 7 USB 'A' ports) to have been on the back of the hub like the Belkin, rather than front and back.
