Well these actually got a 12MHzc rystal mounted at the bottom of the single sided pcb. It's really incredible to see a 4 port hub with so few parts. I've got a some 4-port hubs that are a few years old and they have 4 or 5 ic's and more like 50 discretes in them.

Wow -- how were those packaged and shipped. I wonder if they stick the machines an mess everything up?
They're really really tiny, so 500 of them is about the same size as 1.5 sugar cubes. So they were just wrapped in some bubble wrapper and then put in a regular envelope. But at close range they are really strong. I put all of them in a line and hold on to the top one it can carry the weight of the remaining 499. One of them can easily hold a A4/Letter sized paper on the fridge.

Yea, I'm not surprised. I got these boards to use for parts for building my own board and it was cheaper to get these from ebay than purchasing the 125 MHz oscillator and the AD9850 at my local Element14/Farnell. :-)
