Product Highlights
  • 4 Ports
  • Ergonomically Designed
  • Plug & Play Installation
  • Compatible w/ USB 2.0 and 1.1 Devices

The ergonomically-designed Aleratec High-Speed Flexible USB 2.0 4-Port Hub with Splitter Cable allows you to expand a single USB port to 4. Unlike many USB 2.0 hubs that plant additional USB ports in a rectangular box, this hub's splitter cable connects from your computer's USB port and extends out into four cables. At the end of each of these four cables is a USB 2.0 port. This method allows you additional space and flexibility when connecting USB peripherals, such as a mouse, DVD-ROM drive, or portable hard drive. Since this hub is Plug and Play, you can immediately connect and then use it without having to first install drivers. When you have more peripherals than USB ports and want just a little more flexibility than a conventional hub can give, consider this one from Aleratec.

      Comments about Aleratec High-Speed Flexible USB 2.0 4-Port Hub with Splitter Cable:

      I use this splitter coneccting a camera and an external hardrive to a laptop, sometime I include a LAN to USB line connected as well.

      Design wise I find it very sleek and love the flexibillity with cables.

      The ruggedness is good and has sturdy cabling.

      BUT, even USB 1 has better speeds than this.
      I have used cheaper splitters with much better results.

        An excellent concept BUT these do not work on my Mac nor on either of the PCs.

        Well built- but not even that helps: ALL devices gte turned on and off... scary moments while downloading photos!

        I would return them both, but I am so tired of wasting resources (shipping, etc...)

          The iMac I use only has 4 USB ports in the back of it so I was looking for a quality USB cable that would allow me to plug in multiple devices. Aluratec's splitter cable was the perfect solution. I now have additional easy-to-access USB ports giving me more flexibility.

              Claims to be a 2.0 USB hub, but my PC tells me that it does not work as a high speed connection.

              External hard drives, printers and even flash drives do not work.

              I bought this on a recent visit to New York and if I didn't live in Spain would send it back!

                Do not buy this device. It is not a high speed device and will go offline after you reboot or hibernate your computer. After that you need to power down your devices or reinstall the devices that were connected to your computer using this USB hub.
