4 out of 5 eggsORICO 7-Port USB3.0 Hub

This review is from: ORICO H727RK-U3-BK 7 Port USB3.0 HUB with Premium 12V/2.5A Power Adapter (Black)

Pros: - 7 USB 3.0 ports for lots of connections
- Sturdy Build
- Reliable
- Excellent transfer Rates when Populated with Many External HDD's
- Relatively Inexpensive On Sale

Cons: - Blue Lights Are VERY Bright!
- Requires Power Supply To Function.
- Computer will Not Reboot while Drives Are Connected on Hub.

Other Thoughts: In general, this 7-port hub works very good. It is Reliable, which is a key feature for me since I use it on a server that operates 24/7. The hub has good transfer rates even when all ports are populated with external HDD's. I have not had problems with either the power supply or the USB 3.0 Cable. Some might complain that the cable is too short. It works for me and a shorter cable has less resistance and potentially higher data transfer rates than a long cable.

I really have two complaints about this hub. The first is that the Blue LED's are too Bright! Remember, if you use all the ports, there are 8 Blue LED's on at the same time. At night, this is enough to light up an entire 4 meter X 5 meter room enough to read by. If you have this device in a room where you want it dark, you need to use black electrical tape over the LED's to block them out. It would have been nice to have a switch on the hub to turn off the LED's if desired.

The second problem that I have with this hub is that the computer will not reboot if the hub is connected up and has external HDD's attached. The server keeps looking to boot up the OS from one of the external data HDD's instead of the internal OS SSD. This doesn't happen when the external HDD's are connected directly to the USB 3.0 ports on the server so it has to be an interaction with the hub. I took an egg off for this.

Be aware that, unlike many other hubs, an external power supply has to be connected to this hub for it to work at all. This does improve the hub reliability but may be a problem if you only have a limited number of outlet spaces for all the power supplies of peripherals.

In conclusion, I have found this Orico 7-port USB 3.0 hub to be reliable and fast. I recommend it if you connect up a lot of high speed peripherals like external HDD's.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks OK but have to delay startup

This review is from: ORICO H727RK-U3-BK 7 Port USB3.0 HUB with Premium 12V/2.5A Power Adapter (Black)

Pros: Works just fine for USB 3.0 external hard drive. I use it as an extension cable for my external hard drive that has a very short cable. Works fine once I do what I talk about in Cons.
I have not had any of the tight USB plug or computer crashing issues mentioned in other reviews.

Cons: Will not start up with computer. If I have the hub and power supply plugged in when I start the computer (Dell Optiplex running Win 7) the computer reports it as an incompatible USB device and does not recognize the hub or any attached devices. I unplug the power cable before starting the computer then plug it back in once the computer is booted up and everything works fine.

Other Thoughts: I guess it is nice not to have to install drivers but it would be nice if I did not have to remember to unplug the hub each time I shut down the computer.

1 out of 5 eggsDangerous!

This review is from: ORICO H727RK-U3-BK 7 Port USB3.0 HUB with Premium 12V/2.5A Power Adapter (Black)

Pros: None that I can find. Would put no stars if i could!

Cons: Didn't work and destroyed my system! Luckily I had just done a complete backup (HD clone) before I installed this thing. When I turned the computer on after installation it immediately went into a loop and just kept rebooting. Turned it off,removed the hub and tried again. It still stayed in the loop. Had to rebuild the hard drive - could not even get to a system restore -could not boot into safe mode. Be VERY careful if you buy one of these! Unusual for Orico who is supposed to make good products.

1 out of 5 eggsBad soldering, overly tight USB connectors.

This review is from: ORICO H727RK-U3-BK 7 Port USB3.0 HUB with Premium 12V/2.5A Power Adapter (Black)

Pros: It does work, but has major flaws.

Cons: Embarrassingly bad soldering. USB connectors sometimes refuse to let go of cables.

Other Thoughts: The first thing that happened was this hub refused to let go of an Apple Lightning cable. Then, one by one, the ports started to go out. The clue was when the blue LED on each port would flicker as the cable was moved. Now, I've been an electrical engineer for over 20 years and I can spot bad soldering from a mile away.

I opened this thing up, extracted my Lightning cable, and inspected the soldering. It was amazingly bad. The obvious thing is that they intentionally used about a quarter of the solder that they should have. There were no solder fillets, and many of the holes on the through-hole pins were only half filled. I re-soldered all of the pins.

Next, I tested the Lightning cable in the other ports, and of the 7 ports, 6 of them would not release the cable. I then stretched out the "fingers" that retain the cable. Now it properly lets go of the cable, although to the surprise of nobody it is a little more loose than I'd like.

I can only recommend this hub to people with the courage, talent, and patience to open it up and re-solder all of the pins. I only bothered to open it up because at this point my Lightning cable was more valuable than this thing.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks

This review is from: ORICO H727RK-U3-BK 7 Port USB3.0 HUB with Premium 12V/2.5A Power Adapter (Black)

Pros: Plugged in and worked w/o problems, powers USB 2.0 devices that used to require 2 cables for power.

Cons: Can't power many high drain devices. It would need 7A to do that.

Other Thoughts: The charger that came with it says 3.0A. I can only wonder why it is a 12 volt charger, given that the USB devices only need 5 volts.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

This review is from: ORICO H727RK-U3-BK 7 Port USB3.0 HUB with Premium 12V/2.5A Power Adapter (Black)

Pros: Nice and fast when it works

Cons: Hard drives plugged in through this hub are most of the time Not recognized when they are turned on. Win7 makes the Babong sound when the HDD is turned on but the drive does not show up. If you move the cable to a different port, cycle power on the hub, or turn the HDD on and off 5-7 time it will finally show up. Once it is going, no problemo, works great .till the computer goes to sleep, then you are back to square 1. Sometimes it works fine as it should, most of the time not.

Other Thoughts: Will be sending it back to manu. soon.

4 out of 5 eggsquite fast

This review is from: ORICO H727RK-U3-BK 7 Port USB3.0 HUB with Premium 12V/2.5A Power Adapter (Black)

Pros: Very fast, inexpensive for the quality and functional. Literally plug in and go.

Cons: The usb cable is a little short but very still easy to work with, id recommend buying a 1-3 foot 3.0 male and female ended extension cable all in all an extra 5 dollers.

Other Thoughts: Worth the money if you have need for seven 3.0 usb ports.
