Not Worth it 04/30/2014
This review is from: HooToo® HT-UH007 USB 3.0 HUB (4 Port, Bus-Powered, Built-in 1ft USB 3.0 Cable)
Great packaging, nice design and over all feel. Came with a 3' USB extension.
I can not recommend this product, if yours works, good for you...
Did not last but a few months; purchased early Jan 2014 and is now defective on 30 Apr 2014. It functions when it is not connecting and reconnecting every 15 minutes or so.
I use this with a USB 3.0 Active Extension and to diagnose which items is causing the reconnect issue I disconnected everything to see if it was the extension. Then one by one I added each item starting with my web cam and USB Microphone and lastly connected this hub alone and sure enough almost instantly the dreaded BEEP.... So just to be sure I checked everything a second time just to make sure it was this device and it was. This might be useful in a pinch if you don't really need any reliable connection but I would not put too much trust in it at all.
Worked fine for about 45 days then my computer started to beep from finding a new device. Did that 1 or 2 times a day over a period of 30 more days. As of a few days ago it reconnects 3 or 4 times an hour and that becomes annoying. It still works, it simply reconnects frequently.
