DealExtreme: Hub USB 2.0 with 4 doors (Power Bar Style USB 2.0 4-Port Hub (1-Meter Cable))

The review today is the Hub USB 2.0 with 4 energy bar style doors with one meter cable (Power Bar Style USB 2.0 4-Port Hub (1-Meter Cable)), acquired on DealExtreme.

This is a hub that has no source of energy, therefore the total load on 4 doors added load is limited to the USB port to which it is connected. By default the port should provide 500mA, considering that the hub consumes 100mA 100mA would remain more, sufficient for devices that do not consume energy bus (Printers, etc.) and devices that consume little power (mouse, dongles bluetooth, pendrive, etc.). Devices which consume a lot of energy (External HDs, etc.) can not be linked to this type of hub and must be connected directly to the USB ports of the PC / Laptop or USB hubs with external power supply, because these provide 500mA per port.

In a few PCs with USB ports ideally a USB hub with external power supply. But there are several applications for hubs without power, here are some of them:

  • Use as USB extension on PCs without USB ports on the front of the case or which is inaccessible Desk Officer: for easy connection of USB sticks, card readers, etc. Of course it could only be used a USB extension, but the price of this hub may be even cheaper than the actual extension.
  • Use in laptops: can be inconvenient lugging a source along with the laptop, so light and small a hub without external power may be the ideal. Furthermore, the laptop can be used with beteria in places where there is no energy, and in this case a powered hub would not work or work without external power (some have that option) with the same limitations of non-fed).

The packaging is all in Chinese, therefore do not have much to talk about it, just let the photos. On the back of the package instructions for, Also in Chinese. The product itself seems good quality, the finish is not great, but it's good. It worked perfectly in my tests.

Or Fabrício, I made a purchase in these days and DX came missing a product, that was in stock and that the site would say it was sent.
There was a split shipment, they forgot even send it along.
This product is very inexpensive in case, uma touch-screen Nintendo DS, that custa $2.95 (sku.3259)
You've been through a similar situation? How to proceed?

I bought a Red Laser Pointer 200mW per $27,42, Paypal and such hair paguei, but woe to his status as the DX is “Waiting for Supplier”, and another request I made of him before, containing 2 items, also has this very same status. Another that I had done about 5 ~ 6 days before – that was my first purchase / order -, moved yesterday to “Packaging”.

As will now be? What are these statuses? I read that when it gets in “Waiting for Supplier”, take long for it has in stock and will try to acquire the vendor. ;/

I plan on buying several of those very small trinkets, as keychains, microSD memory cards, ultimately, these things… compensates send wrap everything together these little things? Does the risk of being priced is high? I could buy everything individually, I do not know what is the downside of it… whenever I look to buy an item, looking for pictures of him packing, if per box, ever think of asking for sending individual.

Is there any limit for sending individual? The downside is that buying so I can not trace the number if not alcanse the minimum to have it?

Really do not know what to do. Gives a hint al Skooter, you who is already a mega their client. XD

And where is the oversight here MG?

Hugs.

For me to make the purchase of various items so that each individually inviem, I just have to close every business of every item? Type, I put the item in the cart, business that paid 1 ¢ confinement and business, and do it with each product?

They told me that is how you make individual purchase, without them embrulhem more than one item in one package.

Then, I Says?
