I`m quite happy with the purchase. I needed additional USB-ports but I also needed something fun (you know when you work from home you do want your desk to be entertaining:))
Well, the hub does the job, plus you can play with its shape so it is also like a funny toy.
I think this kind of stuff is a great idea for a Christmas present - not too expensive, useful and a lot of fun.
One weird thing, though. All of my devices work fine, when i plug them in through the hub, but for my external hard drive. That one starts acting up every time I try to connect it through the hub, and I don`t know whether this is an incompatibility problem or something...
However, everything else works just fine (the camera, the cooler, regular flash drives, etc.)
