This USB hub has 4 ports at your disposal. Allthough my laptop has 3 USB ports, 3 is never enough.
I have USB laptop speakers, a wireless mouse receiver, and a USB keyboard connected to the hub and I still have one spare USB port usable, and 2 free USB ports still free on the laptop.
The hub is just plug and play, works on Microsoft Windows Vista no problem.
The size of the hub is about the size of one matchbox and a half, which is pretty small and it's quite thin as well, and it's light too. The finish on the hub is just plain black, not a shiny black finish which is good to avoid finger prints.
The hub comes packaged in the usual all plastic packaging so a sharp knife will be needed to open it.
I know the hub's price is quite high but when you do see the size and thiness of it, I think you'll be pretty impressed.
The only problem with the hub is the wire is a bit short. I was hoping to tuck the hub away behind the desk, but as the hub is more designed for portability it can't lose a star for that.
You could also use this on your PlayStation 3 if you have one of the newer models that only came with 2 USB ports.
With a brand name like Kensington backing this product you can't go wrong.
Great fast service from play.com once again. I had to sign for this item - just so people know.
