5 out of 5 eggsWorks great after 6 months!

This review is from: ORICO W8PH4 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub for MAC, Laptop/ultrabook with Vl812 Chipsets for Notebook/Desktop, Ultra Book and Windows 8 Tablet PC - Black

Pros: 1.) Cheap
2.) 4 USB 3.0 Ports
3.) Latest VIA Chipset
4. Small and Compact
5.) Has never disconnected even during long hard drive transfers

Cons: 1.) Is not a powered USB Hub so devices that need a little extra power may not work with this Hub.

Other Thoughts: For the price you really cannot go wrong. We cloned 4TB Hard Drives through this HUB and it never disconnected. The Hard Drives did have their own power source which is worth noting. We actually got better speeds on some devices than what the manufacturer advertises. We did purchase another USB 3.0 Powered Hub from another manufacturer which gets better speeds but it is double the price.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

This review is from: ORICO W8PH4 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub for MAC, Laptop/ultrabook with Vl812 Chipsets for Notebook/Desktop, Ultra Book and Windows 8 Tablet PC - Black

Pros: Plug and play. No external power supply needed. Fast

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Been using this for about 2 years. I'm using it to run two (externally powered) USB3.0 1TD drives in Unitek drop-in cases, plus other external drives. Averages 170 MB/s according to HD Tune. Ordering a second one now - price ($13) has dropped around 40% since my first order ($21).

5 out of 5 eggsFills a need

Pros: Good price and works fine.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsDEAD ON ARRIVAL

This review is from: ORICO W8PH4 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub for MAC, Laptop/ultrabook with Vl812 Chipsets for Notebook/Desktop, Ultra Book and Windows 8 Tablet PC - Black

Pros: === NONE ===

Cons: Hub was DEAD ON ARRIVAL. I carefully tested it on 3 different computers (OS = Win 7 SP1). It had NO USB output on any of its four ports. Its LED light NEVER turned on. Only one, low current USB 2. 0 device (a keyboard) was plugged into the hub during testing. The keyboard worked perfectly when directly plugged into a USB port of the computers. No other USB devices were plugged into the computers during testing.

Other Thoughts: I am unwilling to go through the hassle of a return of this cheap hub. I will NEVER again purchase anything made and/or sold by ORICO TECHNOLOGIES CO., LIMITED.

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ORICO W8PH4 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub for MAC, Laptop/ultrabook with Vl812 Chipsets for Notebook/Desktop, Ultra Book and Windows 8 Tablet PC - Black

Pros: Works as advertised. Feels very solid - not flimsy. Currently working as my USB extension for my laptop while I'm waiting for my dock: mouse attached, 1 Tb hdd and intermittent usage of the 3rd port for usb sticks. USB 3.0 transfer rates at all times.

Cons: I don't particularly like the blue light as it catches my attention all the time, but that's just me ... and probably not a con to everyone.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's nice, but....

This review is from: ORICO W8PH4 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub for MAC, Laptop/ultrabook with Vl812 Chipsets for Notebook/Desktop, Ultra Book and Windows 8 Tablet PC - Black

Pros: -Four energized ports that can handle USB 3.0 devices

Cons: -Can't handle more than one hard drive at once

Other Thoughts: Plugging in more than one hard drive at once upsets the device and restricts you from doing so.

1 out of 5 eggsOrico 4 port usb 3.0 hub

This review is from: ORICO W8PH4 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub for MAC, Laptop/ultrabook with Vl812 Chipsets for Notebook/Desktop, Ultra Book and Windows 8 Tablet PC - Black

Pros: Arrived

Cons: If you try to connect multiple portable hard drives(2) to it and can only handle spinning one at a time so it makes transferring files between the two connected hard drives impossible, so it is useless and a waste of money for why i bought it., which is probably why right after i purchased it for $15 newegg put it on dailty deal for $9.99. Nice, Would rather have thrown away $10 instead $15

Other Thoughts: Dont buy unless your just looking for more usb 2.0 ports to wireless dongles from it for it appears that is all it is good for.
