2 out of 5 eggsStill need more power

This review is from: ORICO H4988-U3-BK 4 Ports USB 3.0 Super Speed HUB - Black

Pros: It powers 4 USB devices. The cable from the port to the computer is pretty long.

Cons: Its big and bulky. I plugged in the same 4 devices from my non-powered UBS port and I immediately got a notice on my iMac that some devices needed more power. Same devices that just came from a non-powered port. What's that say?

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, fast, powered hub

This review is from: ORICO H4988-U3-BK 4 Ports USB 3.0 Super Speed HUB - Black

Pros: Powered hub which allows high speed cell phone charging.

I bought this to attach to a surface pro. We have the following devices attached to it:

1. USB3 Gigabit network adapter.
2.Gaming mouse.
3. Samsung S3 cell phone (for charging and sync).

I did test with a USB 3 SATAIII docking station with a 3TB drive - no issues transferring large data.

No issues, it just works as expected. The gigabit network adapter is able to transfer full speed (as expected).

If I needed another powered USB3 hub, I would buy this again.

Cons: three ports are in the front, one port is on the left side. Not going to dock an egg since they did that to make this smaller an I knew this when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: Good solid choice for a powered USB3 hub which allow you to charge cell phones at full rate along with not worrying about exceeding the current limits of the port as you do with unpowered hubs.

1 out of 5 eggsI REALLY regret this.

This review is from: ORICO H4988-U3-BK 4 Ports USB 3.0 Super Speed HUB - Black

Pros: Good construction; feels solid. USB 3.0 speeds were nice and fast, only very slightly slower than a direct connection -- when it worked, that is. (More on that below.)

Cons: Dropped connections. A drive plugged in would get suddenly dropped within a few minutes. This happened on multiple ports and with every drive I could test with.

EVEN WORSE -- Corrupted disks.

One of the first things I connected to it was my USB 3.0 Time Machine backup drive. Everything seemed fine for about 30 seconds. Then it not only lost connection to the drive -- it corrupted it. Months worth of backups were permanently destroyed! I tried disk repair and recovery tools. Nothing worked. The data was gone. On top of that, the RMA process has cost over half what I paid for the thing in the first place. I'm really sad I bought this. :(

Other Thoughts: I wanted to give it two eggs. But in the end I just had to give it one. Vaporized data is no trivial matter.

5 out of 5 eggsOrico 4 Port USB 3.0 Powered Hub

This review is from: ORICO H4988-U3-BK 4 Ports USB 3.0 Super Speed HUB - Black

Pros: Good build quality. Power wart has sufficient amperage to handle the four ports and the cable is not thin and spindly. The included USB 3.0 Hub to Computer connection cable is very hefty and well insulated. Control chipset is made by Etron which is the same chipset my motherboard uses for USB 3.0.

Cons: My one little complaint is that all the outgoing device ports should have been on one side, not one on an end, and three on a side. I realize this may help make the unit more compact so I won't dock eggs for that, just stating my preference.

Other Thoughts: After hooking up this unit and running speed tests using my external USB 3.0 hard drives, and USB 3.0 flash drives, I can honestly say that there was not a speed drop going through the hub at all. I had already used ATTO benchmark software to check all my drives, and the testing going through the Orico hub proved that that hub would not be a bottleneck at all. The hub is very well built of quality components, and I expect nothing less of Orico. I have used their add on cards in the past adding USB 3.0/eSATA ports to PC's, and they work great. Some of their pricing puts them a little above what other companies charge, but the difference in quality is what I look at. Customer support is good as one of their reps contacted me after I ordered and replied within minutes to my emails. Don't be afraid of the Orico name brand, they have quality stuff. I will definitely consider their other products in my builds, and reccommend this hub to anybody that needs one.
