The DUB-H7 is a 7-port Universal Serial Bus USB 2.0 hub that allows you to connect up to 7 USB 2.0 peripherals and devices to your USB 2.0 ready PC or iMac. Providing an out of the box industry standard bus, this pocket-sized device expands your PC and Mac by adding 7 USB 2.0 ports to your system.
A single Type B upstream port is provided to connect to the host computer, or another USB hub. Configured directly by the operating system, the DUB-H7 operates seamlessly with both Microsoft's OpenHCI, Intel's Universal HCI and USB 2.0 new generation specification EHCI.
As a standard USB hub, it buffers USB data from any attached peripherals or devices in compliance with USB specification versions 1.1 and 2.0 to provide an invisible extension of the USB bus. Supporting both low-speed 1.5Mbps devices, full-speed 12Mbps devices and high-speed 480Mbps, each port creates a bridge between the peripheral and host computer.
Write a review for: D-Link 7-Port USB 2.0 Hub
Oh, what joy. I bought this D-Link Hub in desperation to replace a 'pretty', cheap, no-name, nasty 7-port hub I bought (not from BT) a short while ago. I swapped the kit twice but the replacements were the same; useless. It was half the price of the D-Link but it ended costing me a fortune in grief and lost data. Never again. The D-Link is superb and works like a dream. It's compact, looks good, is well made and... it works. I just sits there and does what it says on the 'tin'. Also, the socket orientation means it it copes with those annoying 'over width' devices that have a habit of turning 7 ports into six or less; a designer who thought about the user for once! In summary: if your looking for a 7-port hub; buy the D-Link. As they say: buy the best, it's far cheaper in the long run.
This one is quality and after numerous problems with the cheaper options I took the plunge with this D Link. Brilliant and just works as it should.
Without a doubt, money well spent. I have connected 2 external HDDs to my laptop's USB sockets, but found that when I switched one of them on, my internet connection fell over, necessitating a reboot to restore it. When I switched the second HDD on and tried to transfer data between the two, the operation would often freeze. With the D-Link Hub in place, I now connect both HDDs through the hub and 'Hey presto', everything works! I can transfer data from one drive to the other at high speed without losing my wireless network link. I actually bought it to connect an external DVD writer (LG - also from BT) and it does that very efficiently as well. I am tempted to buy one for my desktop PC also! Not cheap, but worth every penny. Thanks to the previous reviewer. You gave me the confidence to order this .
Its great to have a couple of ports capable of charging a tablet and phone. Unit is well made with a quality look and feel. Nothing to fault.
At last a USB hub that just works! I connected it to my Windows Vista PC and it worked immediately. No installation required. No drivers to locate and install. No re-booting. Just plug it in and it's ready for use (under Vista at least). Furthermore it works flawlessly and doesn't take up much space on your desk. Highly recommended.
