All the USB Devices I tested it with worked perfectly from the time I plugged them in. I fail to find anything wrong with this Linksys 4-port USB Hub. To start things off, it is easy to install. Has no drivers and no compatibility problems with the other devices. Now weíre onto price. While not the cheapest Hub on the market, its still a good deal for $35. This is a very short review but there isnít really much to say about this. I have chose to just keep it short and now we are onto the ratings. Iím giving this thing 9 for price because while there are cheaper USB Hubs on the market, this is still a good price. For performance Iím giving it a 10 because it worked flawlessly. My only complaint was that I would like to have a 6-port USB HUB for this price. Perhaps we will see 8-port USB Hubs for $40 in the future. Overall its getting a 9.5, as there isnít anything wrong with it.
