The shipping weight is 1.2lbs, and the hub itself weighs just less than 6 oz. It is an attractive Piano Black gloss, with a bright blue power indicator. 6 USB ports in the front allow plant of room for connecting peripherals, The Two unique flip ports are located on the top right corner of the hub. 2 additional USB ports, the power connector, and the connection to the host are on the back.
A premium 48 watt power supply is provided. I also appreciate the length of the included 3 foot USB cable , and 6 foot hub to wall extension cord. This added touch makes placement of the hub way better than many less well designed hibs.
My only real complaints are the ac adapter plug doesn’t always connect solidly and the the bright blue light will dim. I do wish the Hub was available in a meta finish. The Glossy Black will quickly become a fingerprint magnet. If you are looking for a versatile, well built hub, look no further than this hub.
