5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter

Pros: This little beauty works like a charm for me. Love the external power supply so I can use a lot of power-hungry devices. Good fit an finish. In Line Power Supply so it doesn't hog three spaces on a power strip. Everything I have plugged into it (USB 2 or 3) has worked flawlessly. Good transfer speeds on both 2 & 3 devices. Since all ports are "powered" I can put a lot of external drives/phones/storage on it at once and has never failed. The two charging ports are a bonus.

Cons: Short cable. No big deal depending on setup, but if you have the PC on the floor and put this on a desk top, it can get a little frustrating for placement. I ordered a longer cable with this, so I'm good.

Other Thoughts: Industrial strength. Nice metal cover and put together well. Have not had any problems with this device. I like it a lot.

1 out of 5 eggsUseless hardware

This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter

Pros: works well with small files

Cons: Useless for writing and/or reading large file (e.g. 2gig).
Unit goes into an overflow condition and shuts down.
Same data can be read and written with computer's usb 3.0 ports without any problems.
One must restart the computer to recover the hub's functionality.

Other Thoughts: Using small flash drives there was no problems. After getting larger flash drives there is major problems. DO NOT DISCARD THE PACKAGING or eat the cost of bad hardware.

5 out of 5 eggsSuperb USB 3.0 Expansion

This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter

Pros: This small profile USB port provides not only true USB 3.0 expansion, but adds two charging ports as well. It was quick and easy to install. It's low profile / small size makes for a neat desktop. Blue LEDs indicate when USB is plugged in and working.

Cons: Top vs. side USB ports.

Other Thoughts: I may be picking and, yes, I could have mounted the unit on it's side, but would be nice to have the USB slots (thus the USB cords) entering the side - avoiding top plugs on desktop. This unit is exactly what I needed to upgrade my old 2.0 hub. Plugged into a USB 3.0 slot on PC gives added room for anything I have plugged in from HDUs to flashdrives. I have several Vantec products and find they are all of high quality and reliable. I highly recommend this hub!

4 out of 5 eggsWhat's with the short cable

This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter

Pros: Solid built. 7 ports and charger. 9 foot power cord.

Cons: Minus one Egg for the 2 1/2 foot USB 3.0 cable. For the price, it should have included a 4-6 ft cable at least. Good for laptop, but no go for a desktop unless you want it on top of your case. Now I am waiting on a cable.

5 out of 5 eggsFixed my power issue

This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter

Pros: I was having issues with USB ports randomly cycling through power (would disconnect all USB devices for 2-3 seconds, then power back up and reconnect everything).
Having something that used external power was a necessity, and this definitely fits the bill. 5/7 ports are being used on this hub and I don't have the power-cycling (or USB overloading) problem that I was having before.
The two charging ports are an added bonus and provide enough juice to charge my phone in less than a hour.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter

Pros: nice satin finish, well constructed and durable, works great with a 15ft cable from my basement. connections (usb, power and usb in) are all snug and comfortable, not loose at all. leds are nice and bright, power charger works good. overall looks great on my desk and works great.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: not a con, but it should be noted if you work in the dark the leds will be a bit distracting to some, but if its not facing you directly its not an issue

4 out of 5 eggshigh current low efficency

This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter

Pros: The power supply can deliver 12 volts at 5 Amps, so I assume the hub converts that into 10 Amps at 5 volts. this is enough to charge 2 iPads and a iPod touch at the same time with no problem. I noticed that the voltage gets a bit low (~4.7 volts) with everything charging, but it still works fine.

Cons: The power supply seems very inefficient, the back of the power supply says 100-240V ~50/60Hz 1.5A MAX and it outputs 12 volts DC at 5 Amps. That means it could be taking in 150 Watts and there is only 60 Watts going out the other end.
This means it could be about 40% efficient, and the other 60% is wasted as heat.
This product is quite over priced for the materials and components used in it.

Other Thoughts: I found a very similar DC jack and modded it to fit into the USB hub without voiding my warranty, and at the other end I attached a standard 4 pin molex connector to go to my computers PSU. My computers power supply is about 88-94% efficient ( 80 PLUS PLATINUM ) and has plenty of extra power to spare.
Hopefully in the future this company will spend a few extra cents and include a 12 Volt DC jack to 4 pin molex or sata connector.

(This is a $43 product, you could at least include a more efficient power supply and extra cables to get power from different sources.)

1 out of 5 eggsBroke in 5 days

This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter

Pros: Nice looking. Charging capacity for phones and tablets. Unobtrusive LED's. Had a positive review at another tech site.

Cons: Died quickly, 5 days. Unit is getting very warm to the touch. When you plug in a thumb drive the blue LED next to each port no longer comes on. Can no longer communicate with desktop. Also, supplied USB cord is only 32 inches, should be a 6 footer.

Other Thoughts: Would like to try another but... I think I will return for refund. Have not contacted Vantec yet.

5 out of 5 eggsThe finest USB hub I've ever used.

This review is from: Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter

Pros: Quality of build, weight, performance, features. It's a winner!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I use this to interface with my rack mounted workstation 35' feet away. One USB cable (purchased separately) and this hub now runs my mouse, keyboard, and memory card reader flawlessly.

The extra power ports charge my cell phone and cameras without a hitch. I also really appreciate how it has a good weight so it doesn't slide around or off your desk when fully loaded. Go Vantec!
