3 out of 5 eggsNice hub

Pros: Like the 4, 3.0 ports although i did expect it t be smaller. Also it feel very cheapy. It does what it does tho' I wanted this to extend the 1 usb 3.0 port i have on my laptop but it's more of a desk usb hub, it's really not as portable as I thought it would be. It's a bit large compared to other I own or just others out there. Nice deal tho'

Cons: a bit on the big side, i feels very light and cheap

3 out of 5 eggsWorks As Advertised

Pros: Not much to review - plugged into USB and it worked as advertised

Cons: short cord usb cord -- another 4 inches or so and it would allow a bit more flexibility in staging unit to accept other plug ins.

2 out of 5 eggsIt's huge!

Pros: I thought this was the cutest thing for my laptop AsusFlip which only has (1) 3.0 usb, but when i got it i was disappointed at the size. Almost the size of my remote. I wanted something small to keep on the side of my flip those days I decide to use it as a laptop. This is just way too big for that purpose. It feels cheap as well.

Cons: too big for purpose i had in mind, feels cheapy.

Other Thoughts: Not sure if the size was on the sale page, but if it was i didn't notice. I guess the price is what got me. I can always use it on my desktop and leave it there. Not portable. I do have way smaller usb hubs so i know they exist. This was way bulky for my taste.

1 out of 5 eggsUtechSmart USB 3.0 4-Port Hub, Backward Compatible with USB 2.0 (Black)

Pros: none it doesn't work too bad it looks like it could have been a great product

Cons: It doesn't work on the many laptops or desktops I have tried. It appears for a moment then disappears. Too bad because it really looks like it could have been a great product. I tried it with windows 7 64 and windows 8.1 64 bit and even windows 10 preview same result Show up for a moment then it is gone

Other Thoughts: It doesn't work on the many laptops or desktops I have tried. It appears for a moment then disappears. Too bad because it really looks like it could have been a great product. I tried it with windows 7 64 and windows 8.1 64 bit and even windows 10 preview same result Show up for a moment then it is gone Not worth the cost and troubles to send it back Looks like I eat another loss and I am getting sick to death of eat losses of late

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work with 2 PC's

Pros: LED light turns on.

Cons: I plugged this USB hub into 2 different PC's. While connected to my Asus Gryphon Z97, it prevented the PC from booting. While connected to my Asus P8-Z77I motherboard, it would connect and disconnect itself nonstop. Nothing seemed physically broken about the unit I received. Since the LED light turned on, I am not sure the device was DOA, partially defective, or just designed poorly.

Other Thoughts: I got a refund on this purchase.

Pros: Small footprint USB3!

Cons: Stopped working as a recognized device after a couple of weeks, but ports still function usb2+ speeds when usb3 drive plugged in...Identifies as Generic SuperSpeed hub with an exclamation point over it. No user flashable fw so what to do...bought 2 kept one sold one...cust sez didn't like cuz of id pblm and replaced with powered usb3 hub no problem.

Other Thoughts: 900ma can't be sucked from nowhere...give this bad boy a power supply if you intend on plugging something in to it!!!

2 out of 5 eggsUSB 3.0 Port

Pros: Great item. Works as expected.

5 out of 5 eggsA great hub for what it's designed for

Pros: Works with USB 3.0 devices that don't need a lot of power.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I own this and the UtechSmart 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub with VIA Vl812 Chipset and 5V/4A Power Adapter [2013 Updated Version].

If you have USB 3.0 devices that have their own power supply, then this will work great. If not, then you want to get the 7-Port Hub I mentioned to work with devices like USB 3.0 flash drives.

Remember, this USB 3.0 Hub doesn't have its own power supply, so don't expect it to work with power hungry USB 3.0 devices that don't have one, either.

1 out of 5 eggsnot sure

Pros: Like the looks

Cons: Seems to fade in and out. Machine keeps on refinding it over and over again every few minutes with nothing plugged into it.

Other Thoughts: Probably need to give it back after taking a closer look at it.
