[ad#review967-top]USB ports, we never seem to have enough of them! With all of our new devices having USB connections it is easy to run out of USB ports on your home computer or laptop. That is why we have USB hubs. Today we will be looking at a 7 port USB hub from Hiyatek. It has a few features that other plain USB hubs do not have so let’s take a look…

Packaging & First Looks
The 7 port USB hub comes in a nice clear retail package. On the back there is a listing of the features and specifications we listed above. Inside the package you will find the USB hub, power adapter, USB cable, and stand.
The hub comes with the stand attached, but it can easily be removed by unscrewing it. We received the black version of the hub, but it also comes in white, red, and chrome.
So you have 4 ports on one side of the hub and 3 on the other giving you a total of 7 ports. Also on the side with 3 ports is a mini USB port for the data connection and a small power connection. You may be wondering why there is a power connector on this hub. That is because the mini USB connector does not have enough juice to power some external devices like large hard drives.
