Just right for keyboard/mouse combo
My monitor has one USB connector and the keyboard I was using had none, so I couldn't plug in both the mouse and keyboard - enter this tiny 2-port hub - it works like a charm.
I pluged this into my desktop on the rear panel which gives me an extra usb port for my camera usb wires. Works great. I have been using it for over a month now.
This is a great little item if you need additional ports. I used mine to connect my external hard-drive and printer to my laptop. I just plugged in my two usb ports into this hub, then connected the hub to my computer! Easy. Works great. Everything seems to be working as well as it did before the hub was connected. I followed the recommended devices that were best suited to using this device, so I haven't experienced any problems. I am quite satisfied with this purchase. I won't hestitate to buy another if I need additional ports. Also, this company stands behind its product, so you can't go wrong with purchasing this item. I highly recommend it if you need additional ports; however, use it for low-powered items.
Good to go
I'm only using this for power two devices, no data transfer so I can't comment on throughput or anything related. The thing has a good build quality and works fine for me.
This item was the perfect USB device which I needed for my DishTV dvr, since it only has one usb port. Allowed me to connect a second device. I've removed it from my DVR since discovering that I can also use it with my Galaxy Tab usb adapter. Didn't realize I had several options. I'll be buying a couple more as Christmas stocking stuffers. A really neat little device. The price is right, it's compact and made of high quality materials. Highly recommend for anyone that needs a reliable compact solution.
Better than expected, shares power well
I have a Quality 9" USB LCD Monitor By DoubleSight Displays that uses two usb plugs, that way I can easily use two screens on my Toshiba notebook. One of the plugs is used for usb power, the other for usb information. I thought that this usb port would just split the power between the two outputs, and that the monitor would not get enough 'split' power; but I think this usb split port shares the power, not splitting it in half; so I can neatly plug both of the usb plugs from the display into this port, and it works well! I thought I would have to plug one of them into the notebook usb directly, and the other into this splitter (along with the other device I use) because the split power would not be enough for the Doublesight monitor. This arrangement does not work on other non-powered usb ports; But it works with this one, so it must be sharing the power, giving full power to one output, and less power to the other. Voila! Excellent!
Plugable USB Hub Works well.
This 2 port hub works exactly the way I need it to. Short wire connection is great - no wires on the floor.
Does what its made to do
I have 2 webcams connected to it. One of the webcams has video quality that is less than perfect but I think this may be due to the 20foot USB cable it is connected by. Overall decent buy for the price and for what I needed it for.
Does just what you would expect.
I used this little guy in a project to mount a Raspberry Pi inside of an
original NES case. I popped the plastic shell off of this 2-port adapter
to mount in the original NES controller sockets. They work just as well
as any other USB adapter. I simply chose them for their form factor.
The lead from the board is not very well secured once the case has
been removed, so I beefed mine up with some hot glue.
All in all, it does what it should with little to no fuss.
Works great. For low-power USB devices
Works great. For low-power USB devices. I use it for an LED light and my Tascam digital recorder, so I can plug in my Black Armor hard drive in the next port on the right side. This way I can avoid using the 2 back USB ports, or even connecting my hub for most work sessions. USB ports on the back of laptops are prone to breaking USB connectors when the laptop is moved or repositioned (how do I know this?). This adapter takes care of that for me. :-)
