No bad info, Very compact and clean. Works well and provides optional power supply.
Except that it is only 2 USB ports.
Review for: GWC HU2G40 4-Port USB2.0 Hub
So, having only 2 USB ports (which is complete s**t since I want to have more than just my screen and the GPS receiver), I decided it was time to grab a USB 2.0 hub. I tried ordering this from Newegg, but it came DOA (). So, I sent it back, got some $ back, and then I chose this little guy. Funny thing was that I didn't even realize it was from the same company. So it came, I put it in my car, and *drum roll* it worked. Note: I used it WITHOUT the power connector. Now I know what some of you are thinking: why the hell buy a 4-port with one off to the side? Well, grasshoppers, since this thing is so small, I plan on integrating it somewhere in my dash and using that side port as a dedicated port for that the USB touch screen plugs into, all while keeping that USB cable hidden behind the dash. Hell, I could even buy another, stack them, and use the two side ports for the GPS and touch screen inputs, all while keeping them hidden in the dash, and have 6 ports for whatever else I feel like. There is really only one con: I have an opus 150w, and therefore the hub stays on when my car is off. Although this drains hardly anything, it could become an issue in the cold, winter months (-21 degrees in North Country New York). Anyway, the thing's tiny, it works, and overall, I'm very happy. I recommend it.
Pros: Very small, works
Cons: side port (for some),
Verdict: For 13$, it's a good buy, 8.5/10
Amps/Subs: 0% (on hold)
Fabrication: Need help!!! Someone in Boston area who can help me with this please send me a PM.
How are you powring the USB Hub?
So Why does it stay on when the car is off? Is it because of the PSU you are using? Or is that how a usb hub port works?
