The USB Hub has operated flawlessly for me since it was connected. (About two months now) There are individual switches for each port which I use to isolate my devices, only turning the on as needed. At this time we are only connecting 6 USB memory sticks, one external HD, one External DVD and three Kindles. I use the external power supply to power the devices so as not to overload the computer. I also use the ports and power supply to charge mobile devices such as the Kindles and phone. As noted by other reviewers the magnets that are supplied to hold the Hub to a Computer case were not adhered to the hub, some had fallen out and were loose in the packaging. This was OK as I did not want to use the magnets any way and would have removed them. The could have been epoxied in if they were needed. I used hook and loop tape to mount the Hub to the side of my computer desk. No complaints so far.
If you are seeking a very large computer bag than this is it, however too large for anything smaller than 17 inch screen. Too cumbersome for a small computer.
The layout of each plug in gives the fit for maximum number of plugs unless you use the square plug from gaming device or mobile phone devices. I have not had a surge to test it out if the manufacturer claim what they claimed for this thing to do. This winter, when I have to use my portable heater of 1500 W rate, I plan to have on the low side, hopefully it won't trip it, though I tested the heater in the spring time when the weather was still nippy. I had the heater on for about 1/2 hour run on continuously, I didn't see any tripping. I would recommend this for the way the outlets are laid out because many other strip protectors have the outlets face each other so the other end of the same plug takes up the space of the next outlet so you loose an outlet to use.
