Pros: Build quality is fine. Layout is fine.
Cons: This unit, as well as the HT UHOO4 have mounting problems with the 2012 MacBook Retina. This is my experience and it is also reported on the HooToo website. They also state that the 2012 MacMini has issues as well.
There are issues with USB devices not mounting when the computer is started. Otherwise it functions fine.
Other Thoughts: Unclear if this is a Mac issue or a HooToo issue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: VANTEC UGT-MH430U3 4 Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Hub
Cons: -Weak power supply?
Other Thoughts: -Sporadic spontaneous drive disconnects.
-I had to buy another brand USB 3 hub which I have had for a year now and use both with a 2012 MacBook retina. The other brand USB 3 hub has worked fine without incident.
-After 12 months, the BluRay Drive ceased to work when plugged into the Vantec hub. Switched it to the other USB 3 hub and it works fine.
-After 18 months, my mouse plugged into the Vantec Hub via the keyboard, can't get enough power. I plug it into the other brand USB 3 hub and it works fine.
I have used Vantec enclosures for years with success so I bought this despite some bad reviews. This unit is bad and their quality control is spotty. I also bought a USB/eSATA dock from Vantec with a defective power button. Very disappointed with their QC in recent years though I have otherwise had success with their HD enclosures, of which I have had many over the past decade.
