Good hub, not enough power for iPad/iPhone July 29 2010
By Eduard Rozenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The hub works well overall.

The stand is very light and flimsy so any cable pressure will drag
the unit around or topple it. My stand in particular was not level
so I had to bend it a little to prevent it from wobbling.

An external 2.5" portable drive seems to work fine when plugged into
the hub.

However, even though it is a "powered" hub it does not provide enough
power to charge an iPad (to be fair a lot of PC laptops don't either).
An iPhone was also a bit fiddly as far as getting recognized by iTunes
and getting charged - likely because there is borderline enough power
for it.

Expect to have to charge iPads with a recent Mac's built-in USB port
or external power supply, and iPhones with a Mac/PC's built-in USB
port or external power supply.

The main reasons to get this hub over others (powered or unpowered) are
the good number of ports (7), the fact that it does seem to power external
laptop drives well, and the hopefully better quality and longevity over
other brands (I've read some scary reviews about other powered hubs frying
devices that were plugged into them).

Quality Powered USB 2 hub Aug. 17 2010
By D. McDougall - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I purchased the APC hub because APC makes quality UPSes, and I assumed the same for their hub. It looks well-made and seems very sturdy, except for its peculiar base, which makes it unstable with cables attached. The base is easily detachable by sliding it off the bottom of the hub. I turned the hub on its side, added 4 peel and stick clear rubber feet (purchased at my local "red bulls-eye" department store) to one side of the hub and voila--a nice, stable, powered 7 port USB 2 hub for under 15 dollars, including shipping. 2 ports face the front, 5 ports, the USB power and data cables are on the back side. There is a small green power light and each port has a blue light to show a device attached to the port. The port lights do not flash when sending data. It comes with a power supply and a USB 2 A-B cable. The hubs have individual serial numbers, and are warranted for 2 years. The included A-B cable is warranted for life. I'm very satisfied with my new hub.

This product is not listed on the APC web site, although they do list other USB hubs.

Great Service and Product Feb. 28 2010
By Bishop Russell - Published on Amazon.com

After doing some research online to find a 7-port USB Hub, I discovered the APC 7 Port Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Hub on this seller's page. It is an outstanding product and the price made it more attractive, so I bought two of them. They were shipped quickly and I am very happy to have them. I'd highly recommend this seller.

It works July 13 2013

Purchased this for my ASUS USB-N53 wireless adapter because it didn't come with a cradle. It doesn't say in the description but the cable is 3ft long.

A Video Review of the Sabrent 4 Port USB 2.0 32FT Hub Aug. 4 2013
By CKE - Published on Amazon.com
You may not need a 32ft extension for USB hub... but it is convenient to have one on hand.... just in case. A majority of the time I use it as a standard 4 Port USB hub, but if you ever need the additional cable you have it. When would it be convenient to have a 32ft extension on a USB hub? If you ever need to run it between rooms... or possibly for home media and connecting devices to a media center (keyboards, cameras, external hard drives and such).

Notes

- The cable does not use an AC adapter so all power must be provided by the Laptop or connection point. The side of the hub does have an input and appears to accept external power (although I did not try it and a power adapter is not included)

- Using my MacBook Pro I was able to charge my iPhone - but that is due to the power of my MacBook's USB Port.... it will depend on the computer, and even if does power have the power you may not want to use it as a long term option

- The cable works well with a variety of devices... USB jump drives, external hard drives, keyboards, and mice

- Plug and play ready - I did not need any external drives for operation with my MacBook Pro

Final verdict - The Sabrent 4 port USB 2.0 32ft Active Extension is an interesting option for anyone who needs a USB hub. You may not need all 32 ft of length, but it certainly is handy to have it just in case.
