Neat & apparently well-made USB 2 hub, but doesn't last.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hama Bus-Powered Mini USB 2.0 Hub - Ivory/ Chrome (Accessory)How usb hubs have changed - used to be big black chunky units - this is beautifully made, looks and feels quality, does the job perfectly. Front two sockets are well spaced to give room for memory sticks etc. One feature not mentioned on the item description is that there appears to be a DC input socket on the rear, presumably to allow the use of high-demand hardware which cannot operate from the usb socket supply.
Update, June 2013: disappointingly, hasn't worn too well - the USB sockets have become loose, and don' t hold contact with heavier demand items particularly external hard drives, they keep disconnecting. So I'm afraid I must reduce the star count to only 2...
