HooToo HT-UH006 Compact SuperSpeed USB 3.0 7-Port Hub w/ Latest VIA VL812 Chipset, 5V/3A Power Adapter, USB 3.0 Cable

Pros: Compact (6.85" x 2.36" x 0.87"), yet it has sufficient spacing between the ports to accommodate simultaneous installation of multiple thumb drives. I was able to install multiple Patriot Supersonic “Magnum” thumb drives side-by-side. Installation was a breeze - truly "plug-n-play" - no drivers needed. Blue LEDs across the top show which ports are active. While it is advertised as being “bus powered” for low power consumption devices, HooToo thoughtfully provides a 3A, 5VDC power brick for high-current requirements - up to a combined 5A. Finally they back it up with a one year warranty.

Cons: The provided USB cable might be a little short at 3', but according to the instructions, a longer cable could be problematic at USB 3.0 speeds. I just mounted the hub on top of my CPU case.

Other Thoughts: ProTrend Customer Support is fantastic! They responded quickly to emails.

TOSHIBA 1TB Canvio 3.0 Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model HDTC610XS3B1 Silver

1 out of 5 eggs Great idea flawed by a bad design 04/02/2012

This review is from: TOSHIBA 1TB Canvio 3.0 Portable Hard Drive USB 3.0 Model HDTC610XS3B1 Silver

Pros: 1TB capacity (actually about 958 formatted). USB 3.0 speed. 3-year warranty. Small footprint. Plug-n-Play design.

Cons: Poor cable / connector design breaks immediately.

Other Thoughts: I really wanted to give this drive a five-egg review, however I simply cannot. What prompted me to purchase this drive was its small size, portability, USB 3.0 speed, and 3-year warranty.

The first time I connected it to the front panel USB 2.0 port on my desktop, Windows-XP found the drive and installed the drivers (which are stored in a subdirectory on the hard drive itself). Plug-n-Play couldn't be easier!!! I then plugged it into the USB 3.0 port on my Windows-7 laptop. The drive light lit, but Windows-7 didn't see the drive. Back to my desktop, except now Windows-XP no longer saw the drive either. Many hours of frustration and wasted time later I discovered that by wiggling the USB cable just so my PC would eventually recognize the drive -- but only for as long as I held the cable in a certain position.

This drive is great in all respects except for one critical thing: the non-standard, proprietary (and short) USB cable that connects the drive to your computer.
