A welcome solution for our executive Board Room! It looks smart and professional and eliminates staff crawling under the table to make connections!

There is much to be said about this product! The USB hub functions great. The 4 downstream USB ports are powered when the unit is plugged in and turned on, even if not connected to a computer. There are primary and secondary upstream USB ports that allow you to plug one device into the secondary port in the bottom of the unit, say a wireless hub or a desktop computer, then plug another device into the primary port when needed, such as a laptop. When this is done it turns off the secondary port and routes everything through the primary port. I love this since my airport wireless hub connects to my printer/scanner and prints great but the scanner does not function wirelessly. It used to be that whenever I scanned something I had to crawl around under my desk and unplug the wire down below in order to plug it straight into my laptop. Now I just plug in to the unit sitting on my desktop. There is a wire tunnel so wires can still make it through the hole in your desk. There is a 10 amp circuit breaker and a surge suppressor built in. The only downfall is that it is made in China.

Personally, I think this is am excellent product. All your power sources, close at hand, and readily accessible. Unfortunately, the customer we purchased it for was not so thrilled. I think I'll ask the boss if I can buy this from him,...
