5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Using it as a 4-port usb hub for external drives powered by usb 3 is fantastic. Being a hub that uses an external power source rather than rely on PoUSB makes using this hub with multiple devices simultaneously fantastic.

Cons: None so far besides the plugs in the back for USB3 and power tend to make it not lay flat. Duct tape FTW.

Other Thoughts: Better than I was expecting especially for the price. Would recommend! Also the seller made sure to contact me and ensure I was happy with my product. YOU CAN NOT BEAT PROACTIVE CUSTOMER SERVICE!

3 out of 5 eggsPoorly packaged, but it seems to work...

Pros: Seems to work well.
4 Ports
A/C Adapter provided.

Cons: The packaging looked worse than what they do at stores to their returns. They didn't even try to shove it back where it goes, they just tossed it in the box.

Other Thoughts: After my experience wit the seller, even though this product worked, I am not buying from them again. They took nearly double the expected delivery time and I was ready to enact Google purchase protection. I am thoroughly unimpressed by the seller.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat USB 3.0 Hub

Pros: - This is a nice, compact 4-Port USB Hub that connects to your PC for data transfer or charging. It doesn't look very modern or sleek, but its aesthetics are good enough, and due to its minimalistic form factor, it can fit nearly anywhere. Besides the USB 3.0 A - B cable connection, it also has a wall outlet for extra power and to keep those USB 3.0 speeds up to their standard. I didn't go into in-depth benchmarking or anything, but this hub does provide enough power for one USB 3.0 flash drive to pretty much score the expected read/write performance of 3.0.

- The four ports allow you to use simultaneously multiple flash drives or devices for charging. Since all my 12 ports, USB 3.0 and 2.0 alike, are used up on my desktop, this frees up a lot of additional USB ports for me. Because I keep it in one place on top of my desk beside my monitors, it's easy to access, and doesn't require me to reach under my desk to swap or plug in another USB device. Because of this, the hub is very convenient for me and if you frequently swap out flash drives or other devices, having one of these within arms reach is a must for convenience.

- Again, like I said I haven't benchmarked the hub, but in real-world usage it performs well, alike a dedicated USB 3.0 port, and there aren't any noticeable speed issues; definitely faster than a standard USB 2.0. It has a blue LED indicator light for usage and a dedicated power switch. It's a great solution for stationary desktop use if you're running out of USB ports on your motherboard or desire easier accessibility to USB port.

Cons: - i ran into one issue where one of my flash drives, a SanDisk Ultra? 128gb USB 3.0, is not recognized by this hub. It may be because of its format, which is as a multi-boot drive, but I've had smaller capacity boot USBs work fine on it. I didn't have another 128gb USB to try on it so I'm not sure if this is an isolated problem or if this hub has issues with high capacity flash drives.

Other Thoughts: - There are a lot of USB 3.0 hubs like this on the market that lack the extra power provided by an AC adapter. Some people may want that for portability reasons, and then you don't have to search for an outlet, but these devices lack adequate power to your USB devices. Subsequently, charging times are increased and read/write times/data transfer suffers dramatically. The AC Adapter that comes with this device provides that extra power USB 3.0 technology relies on to keep up with its provided bandwidth. So if you're looking for a stationary USB 3.0 hub, the Unitek is a good solution.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: My old PC has no USB 3 Ports. This unit along with an adapter card gives USB 3 speeds. Appears to be solidly built. Requires AC which did not bother me. Has an on-off switch if you need such. AC line is plenty long enough for a normal setup.

Cons: I would have liked another foot of USB 3 cable. But it's long enough to reach where I was wanting to use it.

Other Thoughts: Has an LED (blue) that indicates the switch is on. Probably a good idea.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Size and price

Cons: Short cord. And bright LED

Other Thoughts: A 7 port USB2 hub on my desk just died. Time to get a 3.0, but I realized I never plugged 7 devices in. If it fits your needs why have more than 4. Hub comes with a power on/off switch in the back. I am not sure I would ever need it but nice touch. USB cord is only about 2 1/2 feet. Keep this in mind,as tower to desk just makes it.

4 out of 5 eggsNice product

Pros: Very good craftsmanship.

Cons: Power cord is a joke, thus removal of one egg. Should be much longer.

Other Thoughts: If you already have a replacement USB power cord of the same format, you will enjoy this product.
