EagleTec USB 2.0, 4 port hub "HUB3639" "Yellow"
Perfect! I have purchased other brands which led to problems with my wireless keyboard & mouse, had to constantly turn them on and off with connection drop being a big problem. Have been using this Eagle Tec HUB3639 for a week and it works flawlessly! NO connection drops at all! Very small and thin too, not much bigger than a lighter. I Used 2 sided tape and placed it on the back of my pc for added ports. Eagle Tec is not a new company, I have been using their product for years, always with great results. A+

Inconsistent behavior. Disappointed.
My goal was to use this for 3 software license dongles, however they are not consistently recognized through this hub. This behavior is the same whether plugged in to another hub, through the keyboard (a hub, really) or directly into the computer. The dongles' little lights don't come on/ stay on. Unplugging/replugging randomly activates others but inactivates ones that were OK. Frustrating and not usable. One of the ports was damaged when I got it.. the USB frame is bent in a bit, preventing insertion of a plug. I don't think that little dent is messing up the entire hub, though. At $7 with free shipping, not worth the hassle to return it. Will not buy again.
I am replacing a 4-port hub that has power switches for each port. I smashed the cable by closing a Pelican case lid on it. This prior hub worked great, except for when I would bump one of the little buttons and inadvertently shut off a port.
The form factor (short cable, thin metal and plastic housing) is perfect for what I am looking for. Something easily stashed in a laptop bag.

Solid product and a product for cleaning up my desktop
For laptop users out there bemoaning the lack of USB ports on their otherwise light and sleek travel companions, this is a great accessory to keep around. I'm not sure what I was expecting but I was shocked it fit in my tiny mailbox (I live in an apartment community) in padded envelope. The box containing it is tiny and you can easily stick it in your bag without the guilt of overpacking. It has a shiny finish and is very basic: a connector for a USB port and 4 ports to plug devices into. I've had no issues using it with more than one Logitech tranceivers and plugging in my phone allows me to both charge and interact with it. The price is a bargain to boot and with Prime free shipping this is a no brainer. It hangs loose from you computer on a 3 inch cable so if you want something mountable this may not be ideal for you.

1 week and working great
Only a week, but so far so good. I have a separate monitor, keyboard, and mouse all plugged in with no problems. (Yes, I know I can get a wireless mouse and keyboard. I've had three, and they all begin to fail after about nine months. The wired ones don't have that problem.) I'll update if this hub starts to fail.

One Beef with this Device
this is an OK USB 2.0 hub... i'm giving it an extra star because it works with the Raspberry Pi Zero (not all hubs of this type do)...
hub is recognized as a 'no-name' 2.0 hub by the latest Linux kernel...
i'm taking off one star due to the inability to easily disassemble - my old Logitech hub only required a single screw... this one is snap-together and not easy to take apart without breakage (i should have purchased two and destroyed the case of one for parts)
these little hubs are an excellent way for hardware hackers to expand the capabilities of embedded single-board computers
for the rest of the n00bs - this is a compact little travel hub which should work OK with nearly all devices on the market
hint: get a micro-usb->USB adapter to go with this hub - you'll then be ready for most connections

Great USB hub
I ordered this for my husband and he loves it. He likes that this is small and compact and it doesn't take up much space, plus it's also portable. He has a complete computer/gaming set up so you can imagine how may USB ports he uses. With this having 4 ports and only need the other side to plug into the computer is really great. It does what it says and is made of excellent quality. My husband is throughly impressed and he will definatly purchase a few more in the future . Definatly worth it's price

Save your money, find something else!
The only thing I can say good about this product is that it's a pretty blue color. Its color pairs well with my blue mouse, but this item does not work at all. Not one of the ports works with any of my usb cords. It fits well in my computer but that's all it does well.
It's a waste of money and if I hadn't thrown the box away , I'd send it back faster than a speeding bullet. I didn't spend a lot on it, and maybe I should have because this little waste of money does not work!!! Save your money!

A decent USB Hub
Love it! I got this for my back lit wired Keyboard and separate wireless mouse for when I am at my desk using my Asus laptop. This allows me to have my devices plugged in and the ability to add two more. USB attenuation ( the degrading of the signal) is always a guessing game with so many manufacturers. I found this hub works great with its short round cable. It is connected to another 3 foot extension. I have not issues reading sub sticks or short corded USB drives.

Colorful choices at a bargain price.
I needed a few more ports for my laptop and found this one on BTA-MALL. Not only is it less expensive then any that I have seen in local retailers, it is better looking. I got the yellow one and the color is bright and sporty. I plugged it in and after just a minute of hardware update, the port was ready to use and (so far) it works perfectly. I have my wireless mouse, and my Fitbit plugged in constantly. I am also able to charge up my Ipod and anything else that needs a USB port. Works like advertised at a fraction of the price of the ones in the store.
