"Belkin USB hub"

Im not an expert on USB hubs, so il just try to give a a good review based on my experiences of the product. I hope its helpful.

Well, what can i say appart from "its a usb hub"!. It sits under my monitor and does everything i want it to to.
The hub is plug and play, so no installation needed. It does need its own power outlet, and the adaptor is fairly large. It has a pleasant appearance, and the display consists of a red LED indicating power, and a green LED for each device connected.
There are 5 USB 2.0 sockets on the back and 2 on the top. I've found that the rear sockets are best for permanent connections (keyboards, mice etc) and the top 2 are useful for small devices such as Digital cameras and especially USB flash drives.

When a lot of devices are connected the hub does tend to move around (through tension from the cables) so i have it blu-tacked to the desk!

Occasionally my mouse is not detected upon startup, so have to unplug then re-connect it to force it to be recognised.

The cable connecting the hub to the computer is quite short, meaning possible placement issues

The hub is stackable (through the top 2 ports) to allow for additional usb ports. I have not tried this, so am unsure as to if another power lead would be required.

    I've got 2 7 USB hubs and a 5 USB hub on my computer and I find them incredibly useful. Guess I just have too many gadgets to plug into them :o)
