5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: UNITEK Y-3042 USB3.0 Super Speed 4-Port Hub & on/off Power Switch & 5V/4A US Power Adapter

Pros: easy to install. cable long enough for most installs. no dropped connections. have not measured xfer rates but a 1 gig file takes 15 secs to copy over while usb 2 takes over a minute.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: i think having separate power makes a difference. flash drives usually work but external hard drives sometimes disconnect while in use without ext power.

4 out of 5 eggsUSB 3,0 Hub

This review is from: UNITEK Y-3042 USB3.0 Super Speed 4-Port Hub & on/off Power Switch & 5V/4A US Power Adapter

Pros: Easy and quick set-up.

Cons: Since this is a hub, it would have been nice if the USB cord was more like 9-10 feet. Because the cable is so short, I have to have hub close to computer, instead of on top of desk.

Other Thoughts: Other than needing a USB 3 cable extender, the hub is great. I don't get the message that the device can operate faster that I would get from my USB 2 hub.

4 out of 5 eggsworks well, annoyingly bright power light

This review is from: UNITEK Y-3042 USB3.0 Super Speed 4-Port Hub & on/off Power Switch & 5V/4A US Power Adapter

Pros: So far works fine. USB 3 flash drive and external drive that pulls it's power from the USB port both happy together. Reasonably long cord.

Cons: Slight con, the ports are a bit too close together for bigger flash drives to plug in beside each other. Main con is the blue power light is seriously annoyingly bright. Even when the top of it is covered with electrical tape the light still shines out the front of the unit through the ports. If you don't care about bright blue lights on your desk, this could be a good hub for you. Neither of these is enough to knock off more than one egg.

Other Thoughts: 2 year warranty is impressive for a gadget like this. I flipped it upside down and used foam padded double sided tape to put it under the edge of my desk, so the ports are right where I want them and it takes up zero desk space.

5 out of 5 eggsLiked the first one so much I bought a second.

This review is from: UNITEK Y-3042 USB3.0 Super Speed 4-Port Hub & on/off Power Switch & 5V/4A US Power Adapter

Pros: Price
Customer Service
High Power

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Excellent price. Available power of 1 amp per port means no trouble at all with external drives. Liked the first unit I bought so much that I bought this second hub a month later. Really appreciate the personal touch from UNITEK as they send a contact email after the purchase.
