Pros: It works as claimed--when it's not broken...
Cons: one broken unit does not spoil the whole item line. The first unit did not work properly with USB 3 drives. The replacement works fine (see other thoughts).
Other Thoughts: I wrote 2 reviews previously, one 5, the other 2. I returned the item to Newegg for replacement, and it turns out the first one was broken. The replacement hub works as advertised, no problems with usb3 drives at all.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: USB2 ports work fine with all devices
Cons: USB3 ports don't work with USB3 ADATA UE700 drive, but work with USB2 flash drives
Other Thoughts: I thought the problem was linux, but that's not the case, as several kernel upgrades have made no difference. The USB3 drive works fine everywhere, through a direct cable to the PC USB port, and in the USB2 ports on the UH003. But I bought the port for USB 3 and that does not work reliably with the USB3 devices.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: USB 2 ports work great, USB 2 ports work great with USB3 drives
Cons: USB3 ports are unreliable with USB3 drives
Other Thoughts: I gave this hub a 5* rating before, suspecting slow handshaking etc..

I'm holding off returning it hoping that a linux kernel upgrade will fix it....READ FULL REVIEW
