My review sample hub is blue in color, but you also have your choice of a few other colors including black and white. As we all know, computers don't come in just white or black anymore and if you're one of those people who like everything to match, this might be just what you're looking for.

 

PRODUCT COMPOSITION



For a mere $12.99 US you get the hub encased in the packaging we all love to hate, the blister pack. Some of the main features are listed out on the front with additional specs found on the back.



In addition to the hub you get a USB cable to attach it to your PC as well as a power adapter. Depending on the type of device you attach to the hub, you may or may not need to use the separate power adapter. We'll go over this later on in the review. No manual is included, but it's really not necessary for a product like this.

 

PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



The hub is small, oval shaped, and lightweight. Because of its small size it is perfect for just about any setup and travels easily too. Toss it in your laptop bag or use with a desktop PC. Either way, it's not going to take up much room.
