Great for USB port expansion 12/19/2013
HooToo sent me one of these for a product review. I've been using it for a couple of months now, no problems. If you are limited in the number of USB 3.0 ports on your PC, this is a great way to add up to 7 more plus a charging station for an iPad or tablet or smart phone. I have a Nexus 7 tablet that I use as a remote control for playing movies or music with PowerDVD on my PC, so I can either plug the tablet into the charging port or into a USB port if I need to share or update files between the tablet and the PC. The charging port is active when the PC is off thanks to the included transformer, plus it is up to 4 amps charging current, which is 8x the half amp provided by regular USB ports.
I haven't measured the transfer speed plugging this into one of the front USB3 ports on my case, but I can vouch that it is far faster than the front USB2 ports also on the front of my case. Of course, you have to have a USB3 device to take full advantage of the speed.
A simple to use, but great product that I'd recommend to anyone needing USB port expansion.
