The latest innovation from USB leader Belkin lets you connect up to seven devices quickly and easily. Our Hi-Speed USB 2.0 7-Port Hub features two, top-loading downstream USB ports. Now you can enjoy fast access for temporary device connections such as USB thumb drives, media readers, and for USB lights, fans, and other accessories. Monitoring your device activity is simpler than ever with LEDs for master power status and all port activity. The stackable, slim-line design saves valuable desk space, and the Hub works seamlessly with all your USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 devices.
- High-Speed Convenience with Seven 480Mbps Ports
The Belkin Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Hub features seven downstream USB ports for data transfers at up to 480Mbps. It's built to work seamlessly with both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 devices, which means you can keep older-generation peripherals up and running while maximizing the high-speed performance of new devices.
Two of the Hi-Speed Hub's ports are located on the top of the case for fast, easy access that's ideal for thumb drives, media readers, and other portable devices. The remaining five ports are located on the back for easy cord management. And the elegant, slim-line design is stackable, helping you conserve desk space.
- Enables Hot Swapping and Cascading for Added Versatility
The Hi-Speed Hub supports "hot swapping" of all your USB devices, which means you can plug-in then unplug peripherals--like printers and storage devices--as you need them. You'll never worry about rebooting, data loss, or the interruption of other system operations.
Also, the Hi-Speed Hub allows cascading, so you can use it in a multiple-hub setup to connect up to 127 USB devices using a single open port on your computer.
- Smart Power Setup with Over-Current Protection
Whenever possible, the Hi-Speed Hub lowers power consumption for longer battery life, and its design makes power supply optional in laptop applications, keeping you in control of the need for cords and recharges. Convenient LEDs make monitoring individual ports and the Hub's master power status easy.
The smart design also helps to prevent damage to your expensive computer and USB devices by providing over-current protection.
- Plug-and-Play Installation
A plug-and-play setup gets the seven-port Hi-Speed Hub up and running quickly and easily. Simply connect the hub to your computer using the included USB cable, follow the on-screen directions, and start connecting devices.
