Just a note that this is identical to the device posted in a currently "popular" deal (at $5 more) and can technically operate in bus-powered mode without the AC adapter. HOWEVER, that's only useful if the attached devices have their own power supplies (except for very-low-power devices like a mouse or keyboard, and only one of those at a time) because USB bus power provides only a relative trickle of power to attached devices. This, of course, makes the question of whether this requires an external power supply a moot point since all but possibly one attached device will require external power anyway. It's also important to note that most USB thumb/flash drives must be connected to a powered USB port, which this does NOT provide without the AC adapter.

Hey Wooters,

If you haven't noticed, we lowered the price of this item in order to maintain the spirit of competition.

The AC Adapter is worth the extra $2. You can't purchase a separate one for that price.

Just an FYI, usually takes around 3 weeks to receive...

@sailorspoon: They both include an AC adapter.

@crowsnest: Because the other one started out at $13 and I found this one for $5 less and posted it. When it became popular, they dropped their price by $7. :-)

Looks like an easy way to fry a USB port

Great deal and paypal too. I couldn't figure out how to order on the other one. There was no buy button... Shrug

Thx for the deal

@rocknrollohio: Are you opposed to all USB hubs? This is just like any other 7-port hub, just a slightly unconventional (but much more useful) form factor.
