I have not seen it listed on WhoNA's site, but hope they do not mind if I ask if anyone actually has one of these TARDIS shaped USB hubs I have seen listed on other sites?

If so, I was wondering from someone here who actually it what they think of it, how does it work?

It looks like it is worth getting for the amusement.

Now added to the WhoNA description...

"Now includes North American Power Adapter."

Damn! I just placed an order yesterday and would have bought one of these if I had known that. I hope they are still there next time I order.

Anyone notice any problems with this item? Mine went on the blink about two months after I bought it. First the light stopped flashing, then none of the hub sockets would work. Fortunately, WhoNA replaced it.

I don't leave it plugged in all the time, but have not had a problem with it.

The light on mine is burning out. It's now very dim although it still flashes when I connect my iPod to it. Anyone know if the light can be replaced, what kind of bulb and how?

I don't think there is a way to change the light. I gave it a tug and it seems very tight.

Who manufarctures this Hub? Ford Motors? Seriously, I am curious, it seems the electronic Doctor Who stuff has problems, K-9 and the like. Although my cookie jar and the sonic torch are working great and these are both made by Wesco.

More like Chrysler.... Fortunately, my K-9 works, and though I want the Dalek webcam, it ain't worth the money (nor is the Cyber Controller helmet at TRU UK)

The hub did look right to me, and I don't use them. bounce

I recently bought two USB Tardis from the American Forbidden Planet and it seems they have a good failure rate judging from this thread. One of them works fine and I get 2.0 ports out of it. The other one on the other hand does not.

Other than that, the Tardis sound effect is pretty good.

More TARDIS USB hubs just arrived. If you've been waiting for one, grab it while we have them!

Cheerio!

I was thinking of getting one of those. After seeing this old thread now I don't think so.

Just to let everyone know, even IF the Hub does fail in some way, there is a warranty AND WhoNA stands behind what they sell. Don't let a few partially negative comments deter you from getting one of these really cool and useful items from WhoNA.

It's one of the few items that really serve a purpose other than looking really cool on your shelves. If you have a computer and use USB devices, this is the ultimate device for a Dr. Who fan.

I've had mine for a while now and use it like a crazy man. I'm looking at getting one for the office now too. The hub will power itself from your USB ports, but it tends to work better in powering USB devices if you use the powered plug-in.

Just a few of the beauties left. I'll be snatching mine just after christmas... if there are any left by then. I hear that there are no more after those run out.
