    Can it be used to charge your devices with out hooking it up to a pc or Mac. Does it charge iPad.

    • A.

      It will charge some smaller devices without connection to a computer but most will require hooking it up to a pc or mac. Unfortunately it will not charge the iPad is it requires 500mA and for safety reasons each port on our hub has a 5Volt 250mA output.

    Exactly What You Need This device is perfect for people who have a lot of devices, but just don't have the USB ports. Plus it has a great look, and is perfect for people who have a laptop at their desk, which usually does not have enough USB ports.

    Really helpful This is the second one I've bought as the first one some months ago was so useful on my other computer. I don't know how many USB ports totally new computers come with, but my older computers needed these multi-port extensions for the various devices that I need connected. This is a great product. Saw it first in a newspaper review some time ago. Glad I got 'em.

    Great Quality for the Price I love the ability to switch off one of the six usb ports and have the other six turned on. It definitely saves on my external hard drive wear and tear. The lights are great because I can see which bank is on and which is off. And because it works, it is a Great product.

    Fantastic Hub Fantastic Hub! Handles everything from a giclee printer, to a bank of hard drives, to an iPhone. Seems to provide full power to all devices even when all ports are used. Able to use devices recommended to be used only plugged directly into computer. Plug and play without problems. convenient to be able to turn off half the ports, for instance when not using a bank of hard drives. I've even been able to daisy chain more than one with no problem, though there is a small, but expected, decrease in data through put from hard drive chained like this.

    Perfect powered USB Hub! Great powered USB hub. Good quality and accommodates multiple USB devices. Do not have to eject one device to swap out for another device. Plenty of ports for all your external USB devices. Would highly recommend, especially to those who are highly mobile and use a lot of external devices!

    Just The Thing! I bought one of these before for myself, this one is for my dad. Inlike other USB hubs that resemble octopus on steroids with cables sticking out every which way, this one allows all the cables to be drapped over the back of the desk in a very neat manner. If I need another USB hub, I'll probably buy another one of these.

    MACBOOK PRO USE Decided to try this after reading review by MacWorld. Works great. Has two switches so you can turn off and on the group of two 6 USB ports. The only con is this caused me to have issues with my EHD. When my EHD is plugged into my MacBook and goes to sleep, no problem. When it is plugged into this and I close the lid, it shuts down the EHD and I got error messages. After doing that several times, my EHD no longer worked. So if you keep an EHD plugged in, eject it before closing the lid.

    Almost perfect for Imac Users! So most Imac users are going to need to plug in to USB:

    A keyboard
    A pointing device
    one or more Iphones/Ipods/Ipads
    and maybe a external drive.

    I have
    3 external drives
    CF Card Reader
    Intuos tablet
    Video conversion accelerator
    VCR Conversion cable

    So as you can see, I am greatly in love with this hub. PLUS, it can provide charging power to I-devices on any port. Not too shabby.

    If it had a 6" cable on it instead of a 3" it would be perfect.

    Shipping from us to holland in three days I realy wanted this 12 port usb hub. I love the blue leds and the quality is very convincing. It comes with a convienend 2 sides glue strip from 3m.
    Only negative aspect is that Satechie shipped it out to europe with an US power connector and no Europe one. But i solved it with a 2 euro adaptor. There is no need for a transformator since it is capable of taking the european 230 voltage.
    I am happy. The fact that you can shutdown the power when not in use is also a pro for buying. Forgive me my bad english since i am a flying dutchman. satechi good job!

    Almost perfect The hub works perfectly. I especially appreciate the minimalist form factor and thoughtful design. I'm using the adhesive strip to place the hub on the front of my iMac. This is very, very useful. The only negative is that the power cable doesn't fully seat into the hub. There is about 1/4 inch of the metal part of the connector that is visible. This makes the cable connection wobble a bit. It just isn't a tight and secure fit.

    Good product. I highly recommend it. I have many devices on the USB ports. Since my MacMini only has four ports, I had to use two 6-port hubs. This plus their power supplies took up a lot of room on my shelf. This "all-in-one" takes up less space. I wish they had used a male socket on the end of the hub body, so that I could use a standard USB cable to connect to the computer.

    Best USB hub I've found yet. This USB hub is great. 10 ports that are powered. This replaced 2 Belkin hubs that were daisy chained and never seemed to work right all the time. I attached it to the back of my iMac with the enclosed two sided tape and will never be in need of a USB port.

    Great product. I use my 12 Port Hub for connecting 4 external hard drives to my desktop computer. I am a digital photographer storing all of my images on external drives, not the internal drive in my computer. I no longer need to use 4 USB ports on the back of my computer, just one. The switch feature allows me to turn off the drives that I do not want on, or leave them all off, or leave them all on.

    Too short of usb cable The usb cable is sooooo short. I wish it was at least long enough to plug into my iMac without having to use the usb extension cord. Adding 3" or a little more would be so much better. For the lack of 2", I have to use the long usb extension cord. I also don't like that the power cord does not go all the way in to the unit base. It's like plugging a device half way into the wall receptacle. Not a safe situation.

    Much more convenient than my previous USB Hubs I ordered several items from Satechi, of which this is one. Very happy with it. Makes organizing my many USB connections *much* easier than when I had to use a combination of hubs and ports on the computer. So far, I haven't had any trouble with the USB connections having sufficient power which is a complaint I've heard about hubs with large numbers of ports.

    Unit is ok, lights are bad. I like the unit EXCEPT for:

    1. I sleep across from the computer and accessories, and the bright blue lights were a distraction. Nightly, I have to unplug the USB cable from the computer to get the lights to go out.

    It would be better to do away with all the lights and replace them with one small, unobtrusive, red light.

    Best Accessory I have bought in a long time You cannot have too many USP connections with all the new devices we connect to our PC's. This device adds 11 USB slots to the one it uses. Finally, I actually have spares to let all my devices be ready to hook up. And, it is quite compact for all that capability.

    Nice compact USB port I purchased the 12 port USB port to bring some order to the cable mess around my computer. I like the double sided tape as I used it to mount the hub on a vertical post on my computer table. I would give it a 5 start if I knew that it would keep functional. I have had several multi port hubs and they stop working after a while or become flaky in making a connection. If this one lasts, it would be perfect.

WHen I had something new to connect, I would either have to buy a new hub and figure out where to put it, or unplug something. Now I have a compact, attractive single, large capacity USB hub that works perfectly.

    Questions? This looks great but more information would also help many of us to start ordering these. 2 Power Switches, are these for each group of USB connections?
    Also what is the amps and does it support to power connectors if it is 1 amp is that per group of ports (maybe with a 2nd power supply)? Many devices need power provided from USB to run and this would be a great bit of information.
    5 stars as it looks great but need more information.

    Nice product ... I love this USB hub !

    The only thing i might change on it , is it does need another switch to turn lights off at night time , as it lights up the whole room . Even when using just 1 bank of ports , but it's a small sacrifice for a great product .

    Nothing is 'perfect' , but this one is close to it !
