"Works for me on different levels"4.0 starson by samljohnson
Pros: Easy to Setup
Cons: 1. Data Transfer slow if your trying to burn movies directly to a drive through the hub
2. Copying movies from one shared drive to another not turtle slow but slow.
3. Security wished drives could have password protection to access.
Summary: First I have 2 Belkin USB HUBs in my home connected to my Netgear Gigabit Router. One hub is used as a Multimedia Network. Currently I have over 700 full feature length movies on 5 External HDD connected to the hub. I have a large household with 4 desktops and 2 laptops on my Network. 2 Running Vista 4 Running Windows XP professional. Anyone in the house can watch movies from any drive when accessed with no problem never had a disconnect unless power went out.
The second hub has a DVD RW and 2 Printers (1) HP Laser Jet 2600n and the othe a brother MFC 440CN I have not tried Scanning and Faxing but the printer works fine.
If someone in the house DVD Rom drive either didnt work or needed a second drive to copy used the DVD RW.
Bottom line it worked for me had these hubs for over 8 months
