This review is from: Thermaltake Notebook Cooler Massive V20
Pros: inexpensive.. been awhile since I purchased any laptop cooling but paid about x4 as much
Cons: cheap.. Last ones I bought were sturdy and more durable with built in usb hub... Advertized as supporting up to 17.3" it does not have half the laptop hanging off.. My cpu is on the right not the left.. Blows cool air to the the left so I doubt this will be very useful come summerREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: IT works, all 7 ports work, switches perfect for bit locker drives.
Cons: 2 of the switches stick. Cord is a bit short for my needs but I'll make do for now.
Other Thoughts: This is the third USB 3.0 hub I've purchased since January and the very first one that actually works. Well so far I have only unlocked my drives haven't transferred anything yet.
Previous hubs I purchased Orico 10 port USB hub would not work, 4 ports completely dead - other 6 required external power before devices even showed as "unknown devices" on the pc. Then tried my luck with a Rosewill 4 port hub which only 2 ports works on, but it couldn't power my external hard drives and threw tons of errors when trying to transfer files.
This review is from: Rosewill RHB-342-BLK - 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub
Pros: USB 3.0, arrived today.
Cons: Purchased this hoping to use some of my usb 3.0 devices at usb 3.0 speeds. Tested all 4 ports only 2 will even show a device is connected to the pc. Tried copying files to usb 3.0 flash drives expecting to see the huge speed benefit - unfortunately instead receiving IO erros and error messages telling me the original files are no longer available, This is not the case they are clearly available.
Oh doesn't seem to be powerful enough to use external hard drives with, neither of my hard drives register with the pc at all even in the "good" ports.
Other Thoughts: Having terrible luck finding a usb 3.0 hub that actually works (my second one in 2 months and the second one that does not work) without costing an arm and a leg. Until then I guess I'm stuck at 2.0 speeds.READ FULL REVIEW
