I have a few gadgets that I've tried to plug into my regular non-powered USB hub and it causes an 'overload on USB' error message, so I bought this powered one to see if that fixes the problem and it does!

You can use the TARDIS as a non-powered hub as well by just plugging it into your USB port and not using the power supply it comes with.

When you plug it into the USB port on your computer, the blue light on the top lights up and when you plug anything into the TARDIS itself, it makes the 'dematerialisation' noise and the light slowly flashes on and off. There is a button on the back to switch the sound off if it's getting on your nerves but mine will stay switched on....I half expect it to disappear when I plug things into it ;)

A fun addition to your desktop.

Possibly a little more plasticky than I expected when I first opened the box, but not bad and hardly surprising for something made of plastic. Will probably look less stark once it gets dusty! No complaints for its functionality as a USB hub(additional info: cable length 1.4 metres).

The sound effect is realistic and loud enough and the light fades in and out nicely (I had a fear it would simply blink) -- so the overall effect is good. I have a small qualm over the light being on all the time when 'not vanishing' since it's a fairly bright blue LED and can be distracting. Otherwise, this product would be difficult to improve on.

Update: here we are six years on (it was a snip with the Tardis of course), still works in all respects and still looks good. Obviously I'm a 'grown-up', but I have to say that I feel pretty cool to have it on my desk. In fact, I'm just about to nip back to 2006 to suggest to myself that I order more as gifts (with matters of such gravity, it's permissable to embark on the usally prohibited return along one's own timeline); with the recent rate of inflation, I feel I'll get more value for money that way than buying today, and Time Lords are nothing if not thrifty.

Update update: Just nipping back in 2015 here. While the current austerity programme isn't as biting as the great depression, 25 quid seems a bit steep? It doesn't reach that price again until 2025! That's why in 2026 I thought it an opportune time to take legal action and claim my share of the profits. The Tardis was my idea after all. I used the money charitably and put Davros in a nice retirement home. Kleptomania has set in and he has a little army of salt and pepper pots, bless him.

Apparently there's a few different versions of the Tardis USB hub. Mine is made my Wesco limited. There are a couple of issues I have with the functionality of mine. It did not ship with a power cord, and it will not support my seagate "plug and play" 500gb external hard drive (which was the whole reason I bought it to begin with.)I have multiple external HDDs and a shortage of USB ports on my laptop. The HDDs that have their own power supplies work just fine so I'm assuming I now have to go out and spend more money on a power supply for the Tardis to get the "plug and play" ones to run, which is annoying after reading that a power cord was supplied with some packages.

The functionality issues aside it's a great little Tardis, the sounds, and light are a nice touch, and they work perfectly fine. It's well built, and makes a great addition to my collection of Doctor Who desktop items that keep me distracted during the day.

My assumption was that something described as a "powered" USB hub would include a power lead so that it can supply power to USB devices plugged into it. According to the supplier "powered" means it takes power from the laptop/computer you plug it into. This device will not power USB devices you plug into it unless you provide your own power adaptor with the correct voltage and current settings. WARNING: Do not buy if you are expecting what I assumed to be a "powered" USB hub.

Doctor Who Tardis USB 4 Port Powered Hub Station
Purchased for my 9 year old who found 2 laptop USB points inadequate. Previously had a standard hub where if anything more than a mouse was plugged in nothing worked. Really impressed, the tardis noise is amusing but only makes noise when you plug something in or press the sound button. Printer, webcam and mouse all work perfectly and the blue light on top is not distracting. I would rate it very highy as a PC accessory rather than a toy but more interesting to look at than a standard hub, highly recommended.

can be very noisy and annoying after a while but you can turn the sound off and the light will fade in and out when you unplug or plug in a device. Still working since Jan 2014 and its now March 2015 when I wrote this.

The good stuff:

* It looks as cool as a bow tie and fez on your desk.

* The little blue light (which I'd expected to be quite annoying as I normally hate superfluous, distracting LEDs on computer peripherals) is actually a rather nice, subtle shade of pale blue that's not distracting at all. Plus it fades in and out at an appropriately sedate, tardis-like pace (rather than merely blinking madly) when you plug items in or take them out. The light fading on and off is accompanied by the tardis noise if you've switched that feature on - makes me smile every time. :)

* It's not as big as I'd expected, but is just the right size for an office desk; small enough to keep close by, but big enough to have reasonable detail.

The bad stuff:

* It's quite badly built. I had to nudge the USB ports into alignment with a small screwdriver before I was even able to plug any peripherals in.

* It comes totally over-packaged. I had to remove the base (with that same small screw driver, which wasn't even sonic) to get the retaining wires off of the base (there are plastic-covered metal wires threaded through holes in the base that secure the item to the box that it comes in, and you need to remove the base to get those packaging wires out).

Overall 3 stars, just missing out on 4 because of the poor quality build issues.
