The Max Value 13 port hub is a wonderful product for any person who requires a huge number of additional USB ports. While only using one port on the host PC or laptop this hub provides an additional 13 ports. It can be used with USB powered devices like a USB mouse or USB flash drives.

The Max Value USB hub consists of a very nicely made glossy black square enclosure, 3 sides have 4 powered USB ports each, the 4th side has sockets for the power lead and master USB connection back to the computer. On the top is a flip-up connection - handy for memory sticks - that folds back flush with the unit when not needed. It's built to a high standard, seems very robust, and everything about it says quality.
Initially I was a little wary as there is an identical looking version also on Amazon for £8 more, and I wondered if this was a poor performing cousin. Far from it. I can't see any difference between them other than the name, and this performs flawlessly in every way.
I bought this to replace a lacklustre 7-port hub from a big name, that failed to provide enough power for the various devices to work reliably. I wasn't sure that I needed all these extra ports, and I was even less confident that it would have enough power to support them all. I couldn't have been more wrong. I now have 10 USB devices plugged in permanently, so there's no need for plugging and unplugging cables. The devices include 2 USB-powered removable hard-drives, 2 printers, and various other peripherals and gadgets that power themselves from it, and they all work flawlessly. I've had this for 2 months now and I haven't had a single problem with it in that time. It looks good, it works well, it runs cool yet has plenty of power to support a full array of demanding devices - couldn't be better. Thoroughly deserves 5 stars and I recommend it very highly.
This beautifully designed hub would grace your desk-top. Or at least it would until you plug all the cables into it!!!! However, it's smaller than my old 7-port hub, so fits very unobtrusively on top of the CPU which has its' own discreet open-fronted location in my desk, out of sight, out of mind.
Certainly not the cheapest option offered by Amazon but I'm a firm believer in the "You get what you pay for" idea. Even if you're not going to use more than half the ports, it really is "Max Value" as its name implies and it arrived next day with Amazon Prime. Clearly, when the old Belkin died, I needed something urgently. Go on, spoil yourself.
This was so good, bought a second
Pleasantly surprised, as this is not a branded unit
About 2 weeks ago (8 weeks old) various devices would disconnect and re-connect unexpectedly, which isn't that annoying in itself but when the devices come back they load software on my machine and open windows, which then require to be closed. I have looked up the Amazon help pages and apparently after 30 days I cannot contact them for a replacement or refund. I guess I should have read the small print, but since this is a no-name brand and I can't contact them directly and Amazon sold the item to me through their website I would have hoped they would be able to help.
Anyway, don't buy this product and don't use Amazon, go down to PCWorld or your local retailer and get something with a proper warranty and people who you can speak to who can take an item back and exchange it for a new one if faulty.
I've learned my lesson.
