    GROSSLY Underpowered Hub Won't Even Power An APPLE USB SuperDrive!

    • Written by Sherrell G from Knoxville

    I just purchased this new in the Apple store. Took it home and hooked it up. It wouldn't even drive my new Apple USB SuperDrive with no other ports in use! So I go back to the Apple Store. They pull another new one off the shelf and hook it up. Their's wouldn't power my SuperDrive either! (The SuperDrive is fine... it powers right up when plugged directly into the MacBook Pro...)

    Bottom line: This Belkin hub doesn't qualify as a "powered USB hub" in my book. Look somewhere else if you really need a powered hub! Definitely NOT up to normal Belkin quality standards...

    So disappointed, Just had this device delivered this morning. After a Chat with Belkin support, I was informed that this unit will not work with drives over 1T. Since I have 4T and 2T drives, this hub is useless for me. Back it goes to Apple. I checked with Apple support BEFORE I bought the unit, but they never mentioned it to me.

    Very disappointed in total with Apple on the Thunderbolt connector. Great to have it, but good luck trying to get compatible card readers and hubs.
