I placed it on my desk and connected all my USB devices without any problems. It is made of silver Aluminum metal and beautiful looking too. It comes with a software/driver mini CD and installation manual.
I have gone through many USB hubs so far, and I was looking for something sturdy and flexible. This device does work. It is very sturdy, portable, flexible and relatively small.
I really like the solid construction of this little multi-port unit. I use this device to expand the USB ports on my Mac and Chromebook.
All devices I’ve attached to it have worked perfectly. The speed is good too.
