    USB 2.0 4-Port Cube - Gray

    Do you need more USB ports for your laptop, game console, or USB charging solution? This USB 2.0 4-port Cube from Monoprice is the perfect solution!

    This 1.2" cube hub features four full-sized USB A female ports. It attaches to the USB host with an included 29" USB mini-B cable. The hub is primarily designed to be used as a passive hub, however it does have a DC connector, so can be used with an AC adapter (not included).

    Great little hub!

    Pros: Very small and lightweight. Power jack for optional powered use. Vertically positioned ports work well with wide USB devices (they don't block adjacent ports).

    Cons: Wish it had a power light, but that's a minor gripe.

    Awesome little hub! I've had it for quite a while now and it has performed flawlessly.

    Note, it is not a powered hub out of the box. It will work fine for connecting low-power or self-powered devices. Total power draw on a passive hub should not exceed 500mA for all 4 ports combined.

    If you need more than that, then you'll need to add a 5V DC power adapter that's rated at 2A at least (preferably 2.5A). And even then, it will only supply 500mA per port, so it won't work with devices that need more current, like many tablets and some phones that can require 2A or more to fast charge.

    I have used this hub in both passive and powered mode with good results. It just works. Windows & Linux PC, PS3, Raspberry Pi, even tested it on my Android tablet (w/OTG cable). Pretty awesome, especially for the ridiculously low price. Currently using it (with an optional AC adapter) to connect my Deck Legend keyboard, Logitech G402 mouse and a Fiio USB DAC (with one port left for the occasional flash drive, etc.).

    Let me take a moment to clear up a common misconception about USB hubs. Most USB 2.0 hubs are NOT designed to charge high current draw devices like tablets and smart phones. Even if you have a high current output port on your computer, the hub will not pass the power through to your device. 500mA per port is the USB 2.0 specification for power that most hubs follow.

    If you want a hub for charging high current devices, then I suggest a dedicated multi-port charger like Monoprice item 10240. Or at least look for a hub that is spec'd for high current charging. These are not.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Useless as a powered hub

    • Tyler,

    Pros: - Works fine unpowered
    - Can power up to two devices (such as a wireless mouse and keyboard) without external power in my experience

    Cons: - Can't handle three or more devices (such as wireless mouse, keyboard, and USB drive) without external power in my experience
    - Adapter needed to supply external power is a non-standard size that is impossible to find

    I purchased this specifically for the powered capabilities, and it has disappointed. Unpowered, it works fine (hence I awarded an extra star). However, it is completely useless as a powered adapter. The specifications of the required adapter aren't included in the item description, but according to monoprice's reply in the review section here, the adapter should be 5V, 2A, and have an outer diameter of 3.5 mm and an inner diameter of 1 mm. Such an adapter does not exist anywhere that I could find. I checked all local electronics stores, as well as Amazon and Google, and 3.5 mm x 1 mm adapters are not a standard size that is sold. Monoprice could have made this hub to work with a standard size adapter (e.g. 3.5 mm x 1.35 mm), and it would be a 5 star product. No wonder they don't list the specs of the needed AC adapter on the product description.

    Works

    Pros: Size
    Build quality

    Cons: Monoprice doesn't sell the power cable to enabled powered ports

    Well made and the price is right. Contains four standard type-A USB ports that operate at USB 2.0 speeds. Perfect for my needs (my laptop has only one working USB ports after years of wear and abuse). I connected my DJ controller and one USB harddrive to this hub without issue.

    Pros: Works as described. It is compact and easy to transport.

    Cons: Would be nice if it were USB 3.0 but for the price, absolutely cannot beat it.

    A must have for a Tablet or Microsoft Surface with only one USB port.

    4 port usb cube

    • JohnM,

    Pros: Works

    Cons: None yet

    I have this connected to the end of a 50 ft. active usb 2.0 cable. I have a PC in my garage running 3 TV's through a Monoprice 4 port hdmi splitter. I needed a way to control the PC from inside. I mainly use just to wake the PC up with a wireless mouse. When I put it to sleep with my WMC remote I can't wake it back up. This solved my problem. Iv'e also plugged a usb 2.0 flash drive in and it also worked, with the mouse. Iv'e only used it with these two together. So far it's still working.
