Customer Reviews:

  • Great USB hub
    As expected with Belkin one didn't need any instructions, just plug and play. The extra usb plugs on the top are wonderful for usb flash drives and software keys that need to be frequently changed. It is also nice that it came with a switching wall wart that does not waste too much power....more info
  • Amazon 5, Belkin 0
    The Belkin 7-port is a nicely designed USB hub and works well for one to two years. (I have had five of them.) With Amazon's pricing they can and should be considered disposable, to be replaced within two years. Under no circumstances trust the company, Belkin, regarding rebates since they are liars and cheats. Amazon, on the other hand, will go above and beyond to make good on the rebate promises Belkin fails to honor. As far as the operation of the device, it works as advertised and is quite convenient for jump drives because of the top loading two ports. It does seem to run warm or even hot, depending on the loads, and I suspect this contributes to the unexpectedly short life span. In summary - good price-performing, disposable hub - do not trust Belkin with rebates. ...more info
  • X cellent
    This is my second, I like how they stack! This design is very cool and convenient. The two ports on top make it easy to plug an iPod and card reader in as needed - without reaching behind. Plus the two topside are spaced farther apart than other design, which helps with devices other than cables. Performs very fast as well....more info
  • This device simply does not work
    Worked for about six months, then it started to get really hot and simply quit working. I keep getting these "not enough power" messages when the only device plugged in is a web cam.

    Stay away from this pile of dung.

    I would rate it zero stars if I could....more info
  • Unreliable
    My wife was complaining about here wi-fi going down, and her keyboard and mouse not working. Sometimes sleep didn't work. I booted into Linux to do a virus scan, and Linux informed me that one of the usb hubs on the system was malfunctioning. I popped of the Belkin stacking hub, and everything was fine.

    I used Belkin for years in my job for custom cables, and they were fine. But just about every piece of consumer computing equipment I've bought from them has been unreliable, this device included. For that reason, I'm steering clear of them for a few years. This might be my bad luck, so if you really want this hub, fine, go ahead; but if mysterious problems happen with your computer, it's probably worthwhile suspecting this hub. Actually its worthwhile suspecting any USB peripherals, because it's usually easy to unplug em and see if the problems go away....more info
  • Nice hub ... while it lasted
    I used this at work -- it's what the IT guys gave me when I asked for a USB hub. It worked flawlessly for about 6 months or so. Then my computer started complaining that it couldn't recognize what it was any more, even with no USB devices plugged into it. If I powered it down for maybe a half an hour then re-connected it, everything was fine for several weeks... then it would happen again. I went through several cycles of this, but eventually it stopped working for good.

    I went to our IT guys and told them it had died. They gave me another one (same model) and the same thing happened -- okay for about half a year, then erratic, then dead. Both were rev 3's.

    I love the design, especially the top-loading ports. But given my track record with this hub, I can't recommend it. It would probably be okay, though, if you don't plan to keep it powered 24/7....more info

  • No Stars
    Although we own another hub of the same make and model that works fine, the one I ordered through Amazon was defective. Most of the time the hub would not function. This was indicated by data not flowing through the hub, nor did the indicator lights in front go on.

    We returned it....more info
  • Perfect
    Needed more USB ports and this did the trick for our sons laptop. Haven't had any problems with this at all. Does exactly what it is suppose to do. No problems with heating up as some had mentioned...more info
  • Waste of money...
    This product should have been rated by handcuffs, those that purchase this are being ripped off! I paid $45 for this item and all I get it problems, the only thing that will work through it is a card reader! I have a little $5 4 port pocket hub that runs circles around this very nice looking yet useless paperweight. What ever you do DO NOT purchase this product, if you are looking for a place to donate unwanted cash I am sure there is some other company that wants it....more info
  • Belkin 7 Port USB Hub
    Works well - this is the second one I have purchased. The configuration is nice for travel drives and usb wireless adapters....more info
  • Mine's Cooked!
    Hey Belkin, are you reading this stuff? My hub, like so many others mentioned in these posts has overheated and died after about a year. Belkin should be feeling some heat over this product.

  • Good USB 2.0 Hub
    There are so many different USB 2.0 hubs out on the market, but I did a little research and it looks like it paid off. I've got this hub on top of my desk with all the devices plugged in (External Hard Drive, Printer, External CD Burner, WebCam, and iPod base) and the 2 ports open at the top for flash drives. I also purchased some new USB 2.0 cables and have not noticed a drop in access time on any of the devices. This is possibly the best purchase I've made in recent history....more info
  • These are GREAT little hubs!!!
    What can I say, these hubs work flawlessly. We have had several hubs, including one of these. Others have failed within two years and the one Belkin has just kept up its duties. When it came time to replace the last two Brand X units... we went straight to Amazon and ordered these. We were very pleased to see them on sale, as well. ...more info
  • bad ports and overheating
    I bought two of these. The first got super hot and several ports did not work.

    The second ran cooler, but after a few hours, a couple of ports stopped working.

    Makes a attractive paperweight though....more info
  • USB problem solved by Belkin

  • only good for 7 months
    I purchased this hub in August 08, and for the first 7 months, it worked well. But recently the devices connected to it kept droping connection from time to time. My mac kept mounting the external disk from time to time, and my printer software kept poping up connection error window. The most annoying thing is my wireless mouse, it lost connection very often. I have to get rid of it, and change for another hub.
    By the way, it would get quite hot if you have it working days and nights....more info
  • Works Perfectly
    I bought this Belkin hub about a year ago to use for my 2 External Hard drives, Printer, Wireless USB receiver, USB bluetooth receiver, USB keyboard & mouse, and USB gamepad controller. I plugged it directly into the wall since I leave it on continuously (as oppeosed to a surge protector that I cut off when computer is not in use.). It has been powered on for a year nonstop and it has worked perfectly. I don't know what's going on with other people's Belkins overheating???...more info
