Ooooo! Pretty! Am I the only girl who'd rather have computer stuff than jewelry?

Sooo tempting. But I already bought two 2-packs of those 4-port cartoon guy USB hubs on deals.woot yesterday...:

I have one of these. Using it with the a/c adapter fed back through the usb port some way and prevented the computer from booting up - probably a freak situation with my particular system. It works fine without the adapter, but the colored led's are a nuisance.

@debbiedunlap I'm with you. I'm debating on this one. I can always use more USB ports, between the keyboard, mouse, data cables, flash drives, etc...

@debbiedunlap: Nope, you aren't the only one. Instead of asking how many carats something has, I ask if it has colored LED lights :P Its debateable whether this obsession is cheaper than jewelry though.

Yeah, the colored LED's are really bright...not for use while trying to sleep.

Otherwise, i have no complaints with mine, been working for well over a month, and its cheap.

It comes with a funny euro end on the wall wart, but who doesn't have adapters laying around.

I seen this deal earlier, i need one for my Zi8.... then went out to find one that didn't light up for me. it's coming in a couple days.

These things are total pieces of JUNK! Mine never recognized anything I plugged into it and constantly reset all the time. DO NOT BUY!

@animuson: I think you're probably right. I've had some statistically high bad luck with usb hubs. It makes me sad, they're so handy (and pretty), I just wish we could easily tell the wheat from the chaff.
