1 out of 5 eggsOrico 4 port usb 3.0 hub

This review is from: Orico W8PH4-BK Portable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub (Black)

Pros: Arrived

Cons: If you try to connect multiple portable hard drives(2) to it and can only handle spinning one at a time so it makes transferring files between the two connected hard drives impossible, so it is useless and a waste of money for why i bought it., which is probably why right after i purchased it for $15 newegg put it on dailty deal for $9.99. Nice, Would rather have thrown away $10 instead $15

Other Thoughts: Dont buy unless your just looking for more usb 2.0 ports to wireless dongles from it for it appears that is all it is good for.

1 out of 5 eggsConstant Reconnects

This review is from: Orico W8PH4-BK Portable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub (Black)

Pros: Nice casing, good connectors, 4-ports.

Cons: Constant reconnects with various brands of USB 3.0 drives, both bus power 2.5" and externally powered 3.5". Firmware updates make the problem worse. Take the hub out of the loop and the drives work perfectly. Also, on some attachment actions, it's spotty connection causes Windows to prompt to format the disk.

Other Thoughts: Updated from firmware REV_0701 to REV_8581 and things only got worse, faster disconnect / reconnect cycles. I have another USB hub with a similar Renesas / NEC chipset which works fine. Must be poor quality manufacturing on the inside. Other devices have similar reconnection issues, but might be masked if you have sound off.

1 out of 5 eggsConnects but no external drives are recognized

This review is from: Orico W8PH4-BK Portable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub (Black)

Pros: No external power source

Cons: No external power source
External USB 3.0 drives are not being recognized

Other Thoughts: I suspect this is an case of needing extra power to the device, but there is no possibility of that with this device.

3 out of 5 eggsok

This review is from: Orico W8PH4-BK Portable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub (Black)

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Not always, but after loses connection at full 3.0 speed. I think it may be a power issue, but as someone stated, this should be addressed since it is known you're plugging it into a laptop usb 3.0 port.

4 out of 5 eggsworks as described

This review is from: Orico W8PH4-BK Portable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub (Black)

Pros: USB 3.0, price, design

Cons: That stupid blue light people talked about in other reviews. That is the only reason I didn't give five eggs. It is so stinking bright! I used black electrical tape to cover it. Other than that it is awesome.

5 out of 5 eggsDeserves all the reviews it's been getting

This review is from: Orico W8PH4-BK Portable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub (Black)

Pros: This thing is quite well made. The connection itself to computer is solid, as is the connections of any device I've plugged into it. Looks sharp as well. I would DEFINITELY get this again. I notice an ~2% top speed drop on devices that use this. Of course this is to be expected.

Cons: N/A

5 out of 5 eggsDoes what it says

This review is from: Orico W8PH4-BK Portable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub (Black)

Pros: I use it as a docking station to expand my Surface Pro's capacity from one USB port to 4. Easy plug and play install/setup. No operational issues. Works great.

Cons: Product documentation is almost entirely in Chinese. This may or may not be an issue...I didn't need to read any of it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for Surface Pro

This review is from: Orico W8PH4-BK Portable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub (Black)

Pros: A good way to extend the USB3 functionality of the Surface Pro. My wireless mouse works fine through it, and transfer speeds to my USB3 drive are great.

Cons: The short cable length is fine for the Surface, but if it was more flexible it would be much easer to position it without it flopping over like a fish, and trying to flex off the table.
