The 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub from IOGEAR turns one USB 2.0 port into four. This is a great choice for users who are tired of constantly swapping out cables to connect their multiple USB devices. This compact hub's small size is perfect for notebook computer users and ideal for anyone who needs to expand their computer's USB capabilities.

Expandability
The hub allows you to expand your USB connections. Users often need to connect external drives, iPods, digital video cameras, memory card readers, and other external devices to their computer via USB connections. Adding a hub will allow you to quickly make these connections without constantly swapping cables.
Compact Size
The hub features a compact size and integrated cable, making it a perfect choice for notebook computer users. Notebook computers often only have a few USB ports, making this a necessary accessory for the mobile computer user.

    I had to switch to exclusively laptops at work. I missed my full-sized keyboard, mouse and dedicated printer. With this hub I need to make (or remove) only 1 connection to have all the comforts of a desktop and the portability of a laptop. Several of my friends at work were in the same situation, and for under five bucks, their problems were also solved.

      I installed the bus drive as soon as i got back to my office and it worked perfecdtly. I only have 2 USB ports on my computer and with this I was able to use my printer (which is old and not wireless), my WD external back-up dirve and my connector for my wireless mouse/external keypad combo.

        Great for minis, laptops and even desktops. Works as well as the ones that are five times more expensive. On the Cons side: The connecting cord could have been a couple of inches longer in order to give the device the ability to rest atop the machine instead of dangling from the USB port, but this is a minor complaint compared to the value. Great value.

                I was nervous about plugging hard drives into a hub, but it became necessary and so I got this. I haven't noticed a problem with transfer speeds, the only issue is that since it is unpowered, you can't plug very many USB-powered devices into it.

                    This is a great hub that connects to an ACER Tablet USB Port. The powerless mode works. Highly recommend to tablet users to extend their USB port. The fold-way cable is great for travel.

                          Only one port was useable. If you plugged in a second USB device everything froze up and nothing worked. Apparently Iogear will repair or replace for a $15 shipping and handling charge (paid $[$] for it). Replaced it with a 4-port hub by Connectland, which so far is working beautifully.

                              I needed more USB ports and this fit the need. Cheap, 4 port hub. Quality of the plastic hub area and green light are great. The thin pull out wire that plugs into your computer is of questionable quality, hence the 1 star deduction. I would buy this again and highly recommend it for someone looking for extra USB inputs. Hope this helps!

                                    what do you do when you have more usb devices than your laptop takes? spend less than $ for a hub that magically and easily turns one port into four. not rocket science, but solves the problem. no complaints

                                      I have multiple USB devices plugged into the back of my Mac Mini and was continually switching out devices. The Iogear 4 port hub was a low-cost and reliable way to solve the problem.

                                          Needed a USB hub for extra ports on my Mac Mini and MacBook Pro. Cheap and works great on either machine. Had issues with other similar products - this works like a charm - recommended.

                                            The old laptop has two USB ports. One would not see the item, so moved it to the other one. That happens sometimes with USB ports on computers.

                                              This little hub is EXACTLY what I needed. Upon receiving my new PC, I discovered that it doesn't have enough USB ports to handle all of the devices I need attached to it. This hub solved the problem easily and economically.

                                                Nice design. I needed to add some USB room to the back of an iMac. The cord is short, so it dangles from the back, but that's OK by me. Feels pretty solid; not flimsy

                                                I bought 2 of these for my mouse, keyboard, printers and joystick so I can save my other ports for hard drives and such. The cord is a little iffy but for $ its truly a good deal.
