5 out of 5 eggs4 ports is better than 1

Pros: item has 4 ports

Cons: light, one port is on the side (away from other ports), no power brick

Other Thoughts: useful for adding additional USB ports for powered devices (like printers, scanners). Makes it easier to plug USB in rather than try to reach behind computers. I do wish the cable was longer, but can't entirely fault that because signal would be better with a shorter cable.

5 out of 5 eggsAffordable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub

Pros: - Ability to share 1 USB 3.0 Connection into Multiple (4 Ports)
- Uses industry standard VIA Labs VL812 Chipset
- Has Built-In 8-Inch USB 3.0 Cable
- No Drivers Necessary, Just Plug-N-Play
- Good Port Spacing (nothing Overlaps)

Cons: - Not AC Powered (ideally suited for low-power devices like PC Peripherals or Flash Drives)
- The built-in USB 3.0 Cord is pretty short. It might be advisable to buy an extension cable, especially if you are using it with a Desktop PC.

Other Thoughts: This is my 2nd USB 3.0 Hub that I've purchased from ORICO. My other model is the M3H73P-SV which is 7-Port, Aluminum and more expensive. This W5PH4-U3 model is only 4-Ports, which should be fine for your average computer user. I actually picked this up mainly to connect flash drives and transfer files quickly for clients... and it hasn't disappointed. I'm not sure what connectivity issues people were having in the other reviews I read, but I did not experience any whatsoever. In fact, I tried connecting this 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub to multiple computers running Windows Visa, Windows 7, Windows 8 and even Windows 10.... and not one had any issues. Perhaps some driver could have been conflicting on their specific systems which caused the problems, but everything worked fine for me.

NOTE: This Hub is only Bus-Powered, so it won't work to power hard drives, etc. that eat up a lot of power. Stick with low-power items and you should be okay.

Overall, I definitely recommend this product. The only drawback for me was the short 8-inch built-in USB 3.0 cable, but I fixed that by buying an extension which was only a few bucks.

4 out of 5 eggsFine USB 3.0 hub

Pros: Inexpensive usb hub that is made so usb drives do not interfere with each other.

Cons: No performance problems. Build quality is light.

Other Thoughts: For some reason the hub was sticky with some sort of adhesive residue. Didn't feel new.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 4 ports of USB 3.0
Packaged very nicely

Cons: Cord might be short for some people, consider buying an extension cable.
Every once in a while (usually very rarely) the devices plugged into the hub like to act like they've been disconnected and stop working for maybe 10 seconds.

Other Thoughts: All in all, I would absolutely buy this product again.

5 out of 5 eggsUseful for growing USB Needs

Pros: Useful for growing usb needs. adds 4 usb 3.0 ports, which is great.

Cons: Only 4 ports,.

Other Thoughts: I have way too many USB devices attached to my computer, and I've plum run out of ports. This adds the few extra ports I need to actually be able to do something useful with USB on my computer.
