The ergonomically-designed Aleratec High-Speed Flexible USB 2.0 4-Port Hub with Splitter Cable allows you to expand a single USB port to 4. Unlike many USB 2.0 hubs that plant additional USB ports in a rectangular box, this hub's splitter cable connects from your computer's USB port and extends out into four cables. At the end of each of these four cables is a USB 2.0 port.
This method allows you additional space and flexibility when connecting USB peripherals, such as a mouse, DVD-ROM drive, or portable hard drive. Since this hub is Plug and Play, you can immediately connect and then use it without having to first install drivers. When you have more peripherals than USB ports and want just a little more flexibility than a conventional hub can give, consider this one from Aleratec.

Due to using quite a few USB ports simultaneously, I was looking to have additional options and thought this product would be a great option. Wow, I couldn't have been more wrong. What would normally take about 5-6 minutes to transfer about 8GB worth of RAW files to my external hard drive would have taken at least an hour or more with this product. The transfer speed slowed down considerably to the point of not even making it worth using. I'll take the time to unplug any USB devices I'm not using as opposed to deal with the slowness that I experienced with this product. Greatly disappointed!
