Frequently Asked Question:
1. Why is the transfer rate far slower than 5Gbps as promoted?
A: The USB 3.0 transfer rate of 5Gbps, with a theoretical transfer speed of 625MB/s, is about 10 times faster than of the mainstream USB 2.0 transfer rate of 480Mb/s, which has a theoretical transfer speed of 60 MB/s. Taking current usage conditions into consideration, the transfer speed can achieve about 3 times that of USB 2.0. The actual transfer speed depends on the specific environment the product is used in.

2. The hub keeps suddenly disconnecting with the device while transferring data. Why is this happening?
A: If this problem is occurring with properly-installed devices, it is usually due to insufficient power supply. When the hub is transferring data - especially big data - make sure it is connected to a power source. In addition, we recommend connecting the hub to your computer with the cable provided. If not, please make sure the cable length is less than 1m, so as to ensure stable data transfer.B: Please gently push and pull the outer devices cable to let it better connected to the hub and shake the hub gently to see if they are connected solidly before use it to transfer data.

3. The devices are not being identified by my computer when connected to the USB hub, but they are being identified when connected directly to the computer. Why is this happening?
A: This problem may be the result of one of the following causes:
a. Insufficient power supply. Please connect the USB hub to a power source.
b. Compatibility between the motherboard and system. Please try refreshing the BIOS in the motherboard.
c. System or BIOS settings. The USB may be disabled in your BIOS or operating system. Please turn on the computer, press F2 or DEL to enter the BIOS interface, then select “Enable USB device”.
d. Incorrect insertion or unplugging. Do not unplug the device when transferring data in order to avoid damaging the chipset.
e. Improper driver installation. In “Device Manager”, go to “Other Devices” and select “Universal Serial Bus Controllers”. I

1 out of 5 eggsvery disappointing

Pros: Its light, appears good

Cons: This is piece of junk, not able to support multiple harddrive, the harddrive disconnects automatically and then restarts again. Total wastage of money.

5 out of 5 eggsInexpensive and impressive upgrade

Pros: 1) seamless hardware and software connection
2) opens three new USB 3.0 ports
3) improved performance over native ports (???)
4) power for small external drives
5) inexpensive

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: As part of my political job I handle databases of many gigabytes on a daily basis, and need back them up. Consequently I have three terabyte+ disk systems attached to my laptop via USB. My laptop has two USB 3.0 ports, so I wanted a hub. This hub is ideal – I can attach my three drives to the hub and free up a USB port on my laptop. And, it provides power to one of otherwise unpowered disks.

On receiving the hub I ran some diagnostics to see how big a hit it would cause in backup speed. Logically one would expect some hit because there is another port for data to traverse. The data indicates otherwise – read and write speeds through this hub are actually faster than going directly to the laptop's built-in USB ports. Go figure.

I use Linux (Ubuntu 14.04) and tested speeds with the dd utility, reading 2048 blocks of 4 MiB. Here are the results:

write, with hub, 8GiB file:
8589934592 bytes (8.6 GB) copied, 98.5147 s, 87.2 MB/s
write, direct, 8GiB file:
8589934592 bytes (8.6 GB) copied, 103.329 s, 83.1 MB/s
read, with hub, 8GiB file:
8589934592 bytes (8.6 GB) copied, 102.382 s, 83.9 MB/s
read, direct, 8GiB file:
8589934592 bytes (8.6 GB) copied, 103.345 s, 83.1 MB/s

Considering that this hub can be had for about fifteen bucks with proper shopping, it's a great deal.

1 out of 5 eggsdoesn't work out of the box!!!

Pros: price point

Cons: Doesn't work....right out of the box. Was a total waste of time. The website doesn't allow me to open or download the manuals and the one that came with it was completely useless. Heck, I couldn't even copy cut and past the support email so I could send them an email.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy from a company that sells cheap products, doesn't allow its manuals on the products to be accessible, and apparently has something to hide!!!

2 out of 5 eggsFrequent Disconnects

Pros: Fast USB 3.0 hub that is powerful enough for even portable external hard drives. Great for transferring files to a US 3.0 flash drive or external hard drive.

Cons: There are frequent disconnects. I don't know if it's because the power cable does not fit correctly or if the USB cord connecting it to the PC does not fit correctly. Both cables are pretty loose on the hub end. I tried plugging in a Logitech wireless USB, but the connection flickers in-and-out. I have a better connection with another USB 3.0 hub that is further away from wireless keyboard and mouse, and this should not be the case. Very disappointing.

Other Thoughts: I wish this product worked better as it is at a great price point. However, with the shoddy quality of connection for my wireless mouse and keyboard, I cannot recommend this product at this point in time.

5 out of 5 eggs4-port hub

Pros: I love it. Very compact works exactly as advertised. I purchased this device to add more USB 3.0 ports to my macbook pro retina and it works flawlessly. I love the small footprint it leaves on my desk and the fact that is just works straight out of the box no issues at all.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I love that it also comes with a velcro attachment so you can mount the device pretty much anywhere you want. I will be using this to mount the SSD in my tower but a great touch by HooToo

4 out of 5 eggsHT-UH005 2.3 FEET USB 3.0 Cable

Pros: This product is a great buy and works well with Windows 8 PCI Express card USB 3.0 plug and play.

Cons: The cable sent with the hub is generally too short and didn't work with my set up also my WD HDD external drives were not recognized in my computer after connecting the hub to the USB 3.0 PCI express card and both WD HDD to the hub

Other Thoughts: HT-UH005. In regards to using the hub I am using Windows 8 X64 and connected the hub to my USB 3.0 PCI express card at the back of my tower after connecting my WD HDD to the hub using their 2.3 feet cable I noticed that there was a flash of blue screen and my computer did not recognized the HDD. I disconnected the 2.3 feet cable from the hub and I had a spare 4 feet WD USB 3.0 cable that I plugged into the hub and connected this to my UB 3.0 PCI express card at the tower and it came alive my computer now recognizes the WD HDD external drive and all works well when the power cable is connected to the hub. The only thing I noticed is that my computer does not shut down completely and so I use the sleep mode of my computer which works well with the hub to allow my external drives that are connected to the hub to maintain sleep mode until needed. Please advise if this action is a normal function for my computer when my drives are connected to the hub and the hub is connected to my PCI express card? I have ordered the 3.3 feet cable that is used with the 7 port hub in order to test the uniformity and see if this works and corrects any compatibility issues however things are working please advise. Thanks

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small

Cons: I have it stuck to the side of the PC case using the velcro tape, and when pulled off to remove from the side of the PC case; usb's case comes apart very easily and I have to snap it back together. Not a big problem but the usb case snaps could have been stronger to not come apart so easily.

Other Thoughts: Over all a good item.

1 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware. This item is pure trash

Pros: The device looks nice and comes with a large Velcro strip to attach it to any surface. Since its powered, you can use it for charging devices even when your pc isnt turned on. Thats about the only "pros" this thing got.

Cons: Oh boy where do i start... The overall built quality is just atrocious. The bottom plastic piece of the housing broke off by 2nd day of usage. The usb cable it comes with is incredibly short. It randomly stops recognizing plugged in devices, i was in the middle of copying a file to a flash drive when the thing stopped detecting my flash stick. Same thing happened 3 times in a row till finally i was able to complete the transfer.

But wait... it gets worse. Few weeks ago my pc started having a very strange issue. When booting up it would freeze at the mobo splash screen for about 10 minutes, till finally posting and booting up. Today i finally got around to troubleshooting the issue, so i unplugged all the peripherals and tried to boot up the pc. To my surprise the machine instantly started up without the 10 min delay. To isolate the root of the issue i started plugging in one usb device at a time and booting up to see if the issue would manifest itself again. Sure enough, when the HooToo was plugged in the problem came back. I tried half a dozen times using different ports to make sure that it was the HooToo causing the issue, and am convinced beyond any doubt that its at root of the problem. As long as the HooToo is not plugged in, my pc boots up instantly, but when i try to boot up with the device plugged in, i get the 10 min splash screen EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from this thing, it is simply not worth purchasing. I will be requesting an RMA

2 out of 5 eggsQuestionable Buy

Pros: Good price

Cons: After a month of minimal use, the hub stopped working. The hub still turns on with/without the AC adapter via USB port. However, my computer cannot detect the hub. I plugged a flash drive and tried each of the 4 ports. My flash drive works when I plug it into my computer directly through the same port that the hub was in.

Other Thoughts: This review is to revise my review dated 12/10/2013. This is my first HooToo product. I am very disappointed that it stopped working in only one month.
