1 out of 5 eggsNever worked well, now it is dead.

Pros: -All the ports feel solid and devices "click" in nicely.

Cons: -Does not provide enough power to any port to power any device I plugged in.

-Most devices would not work at all when plugged into the hub.

- Getting it to detect a device required trying different ports, and eventually even if it did detect it, the PC would not see it.

- Very short USB cable which means the Hub still needs to be close to the PC and it not very convenient.

Other Thoughts: -The device is so light that the power cable and USB cable tilt it backwards.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsDied after 1 year

Pros: Looks nice, fast, many ports.

Cons: It stopped working after 1 year.

When I power-cycle the hub, it works for a few days, and then stops. I thought it was the power supply, but I tried several and could not get it to work reliably.

Other Thoughts: Find something else...

1 out of 5 eggsdon't buy - avoid ORICO products

Pros: none

Scroll down to see my previous review from 2014-09-20; this is a follow-up to downgrade my vote and warn you that this product is in total failure. More in the Cons section.

Cons: I previously described in some detail my problems with this device (2014-09-20 below). At that time, the device still was partially useful and I kept it in service for that limited use while relying on a different manufacturer's product to perform the tasks this ORICO device failed to do.

In short, previously it did not appear to function as a powered hub. The power adapter made pretty lights on this hub, but it behaved as an unpowered hub.

Now it has failed at even that task.

Previously, I was able to use flash drives and other very low powered USB devices (such as a wireless dongle for my mouse). This limited capacity provided some use as it freed up ports that could be used by devices that did require power.

Over the last couple of months the various ports have begun to fail. Now only three of the seven will support any devices at all.

Summary: this is pure junk. DO NOT BUY.

I want to add that ORICO has been a customer support nightmare. Getting in touch with their people is problematic and took numerous attempts. When finally in contact, I was informed I would have to pay to ship the broken product to them, and they would then evaluate the product and determine if I was eligible for them to send me a replacement.

No. That's not how it works, ORICO.

Further addition: one of my other ORICO devices has also failed in the past month. I had one of their USB 3 external enclosures for a notebook 2.5" HDD. Umm, correction: I have one of them still. It just doesn't work anymore. I was transferring files from an SSD in the enclosure to a Windows PC when it abruptly ceased functioning without warning. Nothing I've done has revived it (different SSDs, HDDs, cables, systems, etc.). There is no visible damage, and it was used very lightly in the ~8 months or so I owned it.

Two of my ORICO devices failed completely under near-zero or very light use in 1 to 8 months. I'm out approximately $40 to ORICO and had to spend another ~$40 to replace those devices. I'm also out about 15 hours of my personal time (if not ~20 hours) trying to trouble-shoot the devices and dealing with the ORICO "customer support" run-around.

And they want me to pay more money on their bad products.

No, ORICO. That is NOT how it works.

Other Thoughts: It works like this, ORICO:

I won't buy another ORICO product again. I'm cutting my losses and throwing these devices into a landfill. You have stolen my money and over two full working days of my personal time.

You get nothing else form me. Ever.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after a couple of weeks

Pros: Speedy while it worked.

Cons: It died after a couple of weeks. Wont work at all now. I was going to RMA it but I am missing the original packaging.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I got a defective hub but since I don't have the packaging for the RMA I dunno.

3 out of 5 eggshas issues

Pros: Has 7 ports and power supply, plus is heavy enough to stay in place on desk.

Seems to work fine with low-speed USb serial things (& charges phones fine!)

Cons: Plugging USB flash drive in seems hit or miss. Sometimes they are recognized by my Win7 system, sometimes not. I had bought this hub in part to reduce USB wear on the direct PC USB ports, but I've just gone back to pluggin my USB drive into PC daily.

Other Thoughts: Since I do use many USb serial devices it's not a total loss, but the frustration of USb drives which work or don't is not good.

2 out of 5 eggsdo NOT buy - keep looking

Pros: It works, sort of.

USB flash drives work fine, both USB 3.0 and USB 2.

This powered hub works with USB 3.0 and USB 2 connections from computers & laptops.

WHEN it works (see below), the speeds seem to be at specification given other system factors. Using a performance USB 3 flash drive on a powerful system and transferring to & from a performance SSD, this hub did not appear to bottleneck USB 3 speeds.

HOWEVER .... and it's a BIG however ...... SEE CONS:

Cons: I have my doubts that this is actually a powered hub. The power supply that came with this seems to work, as I tested it with other devices When plugged into this hub, it lights up as if it is supplying power (also, draws ~3-4 watts of power with nothing else plugged into it, according to my Kill A Watt meter).

The hub itself seems to not tap any of that power to send needed electricity to devices that draw on it. This is a TOTAL FAIL of the entire USB 3.0 specification.

To be clear, normal flash drives plug in and work. I tested about 20 of them, a large mix of manufacturers, sizes and ~2/3 USB 3 and ~1/3 USB 2.

Also, if I use a powered external enclosure for an HHD or SSD, they USUALLY work. Occasionally they will not be recognized when plugged in, but re-plugging them in USUALLY allows them to connect. In the one or two cases that did not work, a reboot of the system was needed and then they worked as they should.

HOWEVER: _unpowered_ external enclosures for HDDs (2.5" notebook HDDs) and SSDs refuse to work on this hub. I have a mix of about ten different notebook HDDs and another half dozen SSDs of various manufacture.

IT IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE to get any of these to work on this hub .... which is, by the way, the ENTIRE REASON I bought a POWERED HUB. I knew these devices require extra juice, so I specifically bought a POWERED HUB to supply the requir4ed electricity to run these devices.

And, this hub cannot perform that function.

Every single HDD and SSD that did not work on this hub do, in fact, work on another powered hub (Tek Republic TUH-3400) which I had to but specifically because this Orico hub cannot perform its basic, required function. Also, every one of those devices work when plugged directly into a computer, and in one case a HooToo USB 3 add-on card (powered internally with a molex connector off the computer power supply).

Oh, and I use two different 2.5" enclosures, one of them Orico, with identical results.

The inability to provide the power for an SSD is just ludicrous. It is a jaw-dropping FAIL considering how ridiculously little power an SSD requires. I even get these to work on unpowered notebook hubs (Tek Republic TUH-300, for one example). They even work over USB 2 (Rosewill RHB-320R powered USB 2 hub, for one example).

Really, GET THIS: I can access my notebook mechanical HDDs over a USB 2 connection (powered or unpowerd) using my external enclosures. But, this Orico powered USB 3 hub FAIL miserably.

Just a jaw-dropping, clown show of FAIL.

Other complaints in the reviews warn about very tight connections that stress both this product and the items plugged into it. Yes, I also am experiencing that same issue with most items. A few plug/unplug easily, but most are very tight and have to be removed with care to avoid unnecessary stress on teh connections.

Nitpick: the LED activity lights are about 3x or 4x brighter than necessary. When 6 or 7 are lit up at once, very

Other Thoughts: 2 eggs because I have it connected and use it to manage data across flash drives and POWERED external enclosures. So far, it seems to be able to handle that.

I rarely ever review anything before six months. Often I wait a year.

However, the FAIL is so strong on this product, I felt obligated to publish a review after only ~6 weeks.

I ran it through its paces a lot in that time, specifically to try and trouble-shoot it and see if there was something wrong on my end. After buying another powered hub for comparison -- which works perfectly as advertised and expected -- and running tests across six different Windows PCs and three different laptops, I can confidently say the problem is with this Orico hub.

Unfortunately.

I do have a number of Orico products, and very little to complain about those other products. So, this is a pretty huge black mark because it's a fairly expensive FAILure. Will be approaching Orico products with much more caution in the future. I usually allow three strikes or over ~$50 under most circumstances before I abandon a particular brand ... so, Orico, you're most of the way there. In particular because I bought this product in a rush because I needed it to work, and it didn't and caused me quite a bit of grief.

Given that the other reviews also list several issues (some of which I also experienced), I think the design of this particular model is just bad, and poorly implemented.

The only reason I'm keeping it is the limited functionality that I am able to put it to,

AND, I want to see if anything else starts going wrong wit hit as I continue to keep it in service. If it degrades no further, part of my confidence in Orico products will be somewhat restored. If this product continues to degrade (such as ports dropping out, the soldering issue already mentioned in earlier reviews, etc.), I will then have even less confidence in the brand when I am shopping for solutions in the future.
