      Everyone has more peripheral devices than they can plug into their computers, and high-usage work stations are the worst hit. However, it is relatively easy and relatively inexpensive to combat this issue by purchasing one of the many hubs available on the market.
      This particular model, the TriHub 7-Port Hi-Speed USB 2.0 hub for Mac or PC is very easy to use. With both platforms understanding and accepting of this device, you simply use it for multiple devices just like a power strip would function to your over-worked electrical outlet. All your job needs can now be met.
      The only minor difficulty is from the unit's lack of powered USB capability, making portability impossible if using the hub to charge iPhones, or other non-supported Mac products.
      I would still recommend the purchase of this unit for any computer.

      Used this hub with Mac computer for about a year now.
      It has a cool look and came in a beautifully-designed box. Other than that it's a very bad product.
      My disappointment with this hub started with the double sided adhesive tape it came with. The tape doesn't hold the hub attached to the service more than 5 minutes.
      Now about the hub itself: the first 3 ports stopped functioning after about 4 months. I could still use 3 other ports, but yesterday these dead as well. I didn't overpowered the box, it was used for low-power or self-powered devices: keyboard, mouse, printer, sell phone charger with separate power supply and AKAI MPC.

      Did not know that such a basic device can be designed and manufactured so badly!

          Connect my Iphone cord, card reader, USB thumbdrives. Works well. It doesn't tip over. Ports are spaced enough apart so that plugs go in easily. Doesn't take up much room. Was highly recommended by cnet. Has it's own power cord so I can run devices that use lots of power, or for downloading super large files. That means it's not portable, but it's exactly what I was looking for. I couldn't upload my 18 mp images on previous hub.

            I needed a few more USB ports and this fit the bill perfectly. I attached it to my desk with tie wraps (although it does come with a sticky strip already on it if needed) and is in easy reach. Simple, inexpensive, easy peasy.

              I had bought a cheap 'cute' hub at Staples--about 1/2 my stuff would not work and it had no power. THIS has it all, with room left over. I've attached it the side of my iMac.
              NOW, need to look for something to control all the wires

                this works as expected except that for some reason the iphone won't sync when plugged into it. actually it starts to sync, and then gives an error after a minute or so and stops. I have an iphone 4, and a mac desktop.

                so I use the hub for everything else and leave the iphone plugged directly into the USB port on the computer. at the time of installation I was running the snow leopard operating system-- haven't tried to sync since upgrading to mountain lion. what i'm getting at is, I don't know if it's a software or hardware issue.

                but everything else about it works ok.

                    Decent little hub. I like how it has two of the ports spread out from the pack for odd shaped devices or whatnot.

                        Good thing, has 2 USB ports (out of 7) with extra width between them for bulkier USBs.
                        Big plus on it being self powered.
                        Satisfied with it.

                                  This reasonably priced 7 port USB hub with power adapter is a must for those who use external drives (both hard disk and CD/DVD), which need extra power, and usually come with an extra USB connection to gain this power. My laptop has only 2 USB ports, so one external drive pretty much is all I can attach at one time, and nothing else. This hub solves that problem. The AC adapter is small and light, and doesn't cover more than 1 space on the electric power strip. Very infrequently, one of my peripherals generates a device removal message without actually being removed, and also the external USB mouse has frozen a couple of times. Otherwise it is smooth and easy sailing. Thank you B&H for a good but inexpensive product!

                                    Contrary to the other reviews, I have found the adhesive to be sufficiently sticky for a one-time placement and use. If the adhesive should fail, two sided tape or velcro should do the trick. As for the function, it works just as described.

                                      I purchased this 6 USB hub to free up some of the ports in the back of my new 27" iMac. It works well. I like the size as it's small enough to sit in the narrow space between the back of my desk and the cube wall. It comes with double stick tape on the bottom, which I opted not to use due to the comments from other reviewers that it's not strong enough to hold the hub in place. I do wish there was some way to secure it, but all in all it's serving its purpose well.

                                        I have this set up with my desk. I have a few items which need usb connections (more than my macbook has) and this more than expands my setup sufficiently. The sticky feet are also a nice addition, but I wouldn't trust them to hold it up to the side or top of something if you have several items you pull in or out often. All of this at a very good price.

                                        Has plenty of ports positioned at a convenient angle but some of the ports can be a little crowded to plug some adapters into. Also, the tape on the bottom is too flimsy to hold the hub firmly in place.

                                        I've tried a lot of them, this has been the only one that would cooperate with external drives (plural) plugged in. Tried it with 3. Can leave attached even with restarts. Tested with both Macs and PC's XP & 7.
                                        Indicator light is as expected on brightness, not to annoyingly bright. Does get a little tipsy with all ports occupied. Has two sided tape, didnt use.
                                        The many other brands would potentially work, but not with power needing devices, even though, their power adapter was used.
                                        And Besides........ B&H had the best price!

                                          Very, very useful, and came with an external power adaptor just to ensure that the usb hub wont overuse the computer.

                                                It's very compact for how many slots it takes and price is reasonable.

                                                  Comments about Macally TriHub 7-Port Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Hub for Mac & PC:

                                                  I use this hub to attach additional music studio equipment to my iMac. I appreciate that it's powered by a separate AC adaptor b/c there's no lag time while new peripherals are acknowledged by the hub. That was the thing I worried most about but it absolutely hasn't been an issue. My only complaint would be the cheezy tape on the bottom of the hub that's supposed to affix it to the desktop. Seems kind of pointless. The manufacturer should either make it better, or leave it off entirely.
