Boynq Haspel 4-port USB Hub Review


Funky Four-Port

USB hubs are important for laptop-toters and PC nerds alike. It seems like even if we have four USB ports on our machine and perhaps two extra on the monitor, there is never enough room for all of our gadgets, printers, mp3 players, cameras, and flash drivers to plug in. So if you have to pick up a USB hub, what should you get for an inexpensive price? Boynq’s 4-port USB hub looks like a good choice…

Boynq is known for making unique peripherals. Some are useful; others are just extra bells and whistles. Boynq’s USB hub is functional and small – perfect for traveling and fitting into small places. It could also be confused with a ninja throwing star, to go along with your new shiny ninja Ideazon Merc Stealth keyboard.

The Haspel has already become a great tool for many people all over the world.

The well-designed USB-hub ensures that you will not run out of available USB ports quickly, so that you can always connect more USB-debices at the same time such as memory sticks, digital cameras, MP3 players, and more.

The big advantage of the Haspel is its compact size and the unique retractable 1-meter USB cable, making the product ideal for travelling and organized lifestyles.

Key features:

  • 4-port USB-hub, available in USB revision 1.1 or 2.0
  • USB USB powered, no AC adapter required
  • Plug and play, no software required
  • Retro design with retractable wire
  • Magnetically shielded cable (1m)

The design is sleek looking. I have the guy edition, so the face is silver with a black wire and back. The girly edition is white on white. The face has 4 USB ports shaped circularly around the face. This design works well so that your cords don’t all run into each other. On the face is a wee knob that turns the entire face which is used to retract the cord. I’m not sure what the function of the tiny handle and feet are, considering they are too small to grasp or support the hub. If it’s just for looks, the Haspel begins to look like an old fashion radio.
