Review: USB 2.0 and FireWire Combo hub (HUB-UF)

 

Petite and versatilve hub

Light weight. Mount it vertically, horizontally, or magnetically. Excellent travel accessory

Provide power for up to 3 devices. Only 2 FireWire ports, but one must be connected to the computer. Could use another FireWire port

Just as my desktop started to resemble a nest of snakes with its tangled mass of USB and FireWire cables, I discovered Macally Peripherals’ USB 2.0 FireWire Hi-Speed Combo Hub. The hub expands the number of USB 1.1 or 2.0 and FireWire ports available

Macally USB2 hub

 

Introduction Well as USB2 is getting more and more popular people are getting more products that require USB 2 ports. Tonight we will have a look at a USB2 hub from Macally. It's a 4 port hub that can run your products on USB 2. This is a small little...

Small ; Works very good ; Easy to use ; Looks good

Very lightweight so the cables actually move the hub around ; Lack of documentation

This is a great device that works very good. Performance wise there is no difference if using the hub or not. It’s very small so it will fit anywhere. Everything you need is included so you can just plug and play. One thing that I found was wrong with...

Macally IceCam2 webcam review

 

While your MacBook comes with a webcam built-in, where do you turn if you want to opt for something different? Macally believes it has the answer with the IceCam2. We get video calling to find out the facts. The white webcam sits atop your computer or...

Video quality is good

Microphone poor

The colour balance and video capabilities against the MacBook Pro's built-in camera is better, shame the sound isn't

IceCam2 review

 

Respectable picture quality and good software support help the IceCam2 stand out.

Good value, stylish, Mac-friendly design, easy to set up and operate, lens focus can be manually adjusted

It can only run with one conferencing app at a time, image quality controls are limited to focus ring on lens

Still, this is streets ahead of the older model, offering respectable picture quality and a much more durable construction.

Macally IceCam 2

 

Macally's IceCam 2 is a USB 2 webcam that looks rather like a white, one-eyed head and shoulders image of Pixar's Wall-E. It's also a very decent webcam for anyone who doesn't have an iSight on their Mac

This wouldn't be an issue if you could opt to use the camera for video and choose another device for audio, but the IceCam 2 is identified as one device, so you have to use it for both or not at all. That limits its appeal if you need better audio...

Bought to use with Skype & Gmail Video and Chat.

 

For the price and resolution obtained it is well worth the price.

Very easy to install with Windows 7 and takes adequate photos and videos with "Debut" software and "Windows Live Movie Maker"; as a first line webcam it will serve the purpose

Slightly difficult to manually focus the lens; needs to put some type of grid on the side of the lens so that the finger tips can grip it better

Not so great

 

My sister bought this web cam for my father so her baby could see him on Skype. As the family techie, I handled the install. It gets an A+ for compatibility. I plugged it in and it worked, both with my MacBook Pro and his PowerBook G4 and for both ......

Compantible with my MacBook Pro and PowerBook G4. Good sound

Very poor image quality. Lousy tech support

macally ICECAM Webcam

 

Inexpensive, easy to "install" but I am annoyed that Yahoo Messenger doesn't recognize it - this was a problem for a previous reviewer. Any advice on getting YM to recognize it? If YM won't work with it then purchasing the software to run with iChatAV...
