I have a drawer-full of seldomly-used and semi-necessary stuff like this. I still want it.

I actually purchased this a few weeks ago. I was sick of running out of USB ports and it looked like it would do the job well. It comes with a USB M-F extension cord (about 3') and a double sided sticky strip. With those included I was able to connect it to my computer and run it to the inside edge of my desk so it's out of sight but still easily accessible. It's worked great form me and if I ever run out of ports again i'll be picking up another one to chain on!

I saw a write-up on this about six weeks or so ago and wanted to solve my daisy-chained hub situation as I have a lot of USB devices, especially external disks. Ordered it and it came in just a couple of days. So far its worked perfectly with no mysterious drive disconnects that I was getting with other hubs. I have 2 notebook drives that get their power from the hub and these as well work great. I used to have to have my cable for iPhone and iPad plugged directly into the Mac to solve sync problems but it now works fine on this hub. For me it has solved all of the problems that I have had in the past with various different USB hubs.

will it charge up devices with the computer off?

Yes, as it' has supplemental power and is separate from the PC.

Have you guys in the lab ever actually chained 127 USB devices?

I remember them (or maybe it was PC Gamer) hooking up a bunch of hard drives, cameras, keyboards and mice. I think it was 60 some devices total.

Might have been back in 2000-2002 or sometime. It was in one of the back issues they had at my high school library.
