Tripp Lite's ultra small 7-port USB 2.0 hub is the most versatile and powerful hub on the market. It allows you to connect up to seven USB devices to a single USB port on your computer. This unit meets or exceeds USB 2.0 Specifications for Hi-Speed data transmission rates up to 480Mbps. Perfect for both the mobile and desktop user. While the hub will function perfectly in virtually all cases without needing external power, a compact, multi-voltage AC adapter (110/220V ) has been provided for the rare circumstance when connecting a power hungry device. This USB 2.0 device is backwards compatible so that it will function with both USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices. Over-current protection safeguards connected equipment from overvoltages.

Multi-port USB Powered Hub

By

Comments about Tripp Lite 7-Port USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Hub:

After buying a new laptop computer for my office to replace a desktop I did not have enough USB ports for all the peripherals.

I tried a passive hub that I was not using and it could only support 2 peripherals at a time.

This device supports all peripherals without any problem. It does the job and takes up very little desk space.

Great hub!

Comments about Tripp Lite 7-Port USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Hub:

I needed a hub to expand the number of ports on my laptop. It's worked great for the few months that I've had it! It's currently got a keyboard, mouse, gamepad, webcam, and Bluetooth adapter plugged into it. Haven't noticed any functional oddities or danger signs, yet. And yes - as other reviewers have said, it does run cool.

It IS lightweight, so be ready for anything corded you plug into it to have far more heft than the hub. I've managed just fine with pulling the hub forward on my desk enough for the cords to rest on my desk. The hub is basically being supported by the cables that are plugged into it. Not really an issue, and creative people can find workarounds. =)

One very small annoyance - I have a mouse and keyboard with LED backlighting. When I turn my system off for the day, the lighting remains on. For me, the hub is within reach, so (after my system is powered down) I simply unplug the adapter from the back of the device, then plug it back in. Resets the lights, and all is dark. I could do without that, but it isn't really a big addition to my shutdown routine.

Overall, this is a very simple, stable option to expand the ports on your computer.

Comments about Tripp Lite 7-Port USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Hub:

I have had various USB port adapters over the years. Some bad some good but none as good as Tripp-Lite U22-007-R.
As far as I'm concerned this is the best one on the market. How anyone can really find fault with this 7 Port USB Hub is unbelievable.

Comments about Tripp Lite 7-Port USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Hub:

This USB hub seems to be a very useful and functional device for a good price. Before buying it, I investigated several competitors. This model provided the best bang for the buck. It installed quickly and easily, and I was up and running in about 5 minutes.

Happy so far with one small issue.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Tripp Lite 7-Port USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Hub:

The only problem I have noticed is that the power adapter doesn't fit all the way into the port on the unit. It is rather loose and has some wiggle room. This makes me a little uncomfortable. Other than that, thumbs up so far. I do like how it has five ports on the back and then two on the front. I use the 5 ports for devices that I keep permanently connected that way I don't have to reach around to the back. Since I don't need portability, I have permanently attached it to my desk as it isn't quite heavy enough to combat the stiffness of USB cables. The fact that it can be placed vertically or horizontally is also a plus.

Comments about Tripp Lite 7-Port USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Hub:

A welcome addition to my cluttered workstation at home. With my peripherals scattered in various drawers, shelf cubbies and desktop ~ the simple little hub comes in handy many times each week.
Works, looks and performs exactly as expected.

Comments about Tripp Lite 7-Port USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Hub:

The Tripp Lite USB Hub works just like advertised and was very easy to install and start using. I've purchased several USB hubs over the years and they all failed within a few months. The Tripp Lite has had no issues and it's still working perfectly a year after purchase.
