HooToo® HT-UH005 Ultra-Slim Compact SuperSpeed USB 3.0 4-Port Hub (Latest VIA VL812 Chipset, 5V/2A Power Adapter, 2.3 feet USB 3.0 Cable, Free Magic Velcro Stickers)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - The hub itself works wonders (~140MBps combined through it for sustained periods of time).
- The device indicator is cool.
- The logo lights up (not terribly bright, unlike a lot of other blue LED things).

Cons: - The cable turned out to be an issue.
- The top casing/bottom panel comes off if pulled too hard (e.g. You have it velcroed to a surface).

Other Thoughts: When I first connected it to my older VAIO, it only showed up as a 2.0 hub. I reinstalled/updated every 3.0 driver applicable, but no luck. On a whim, I traded the cable for the one on my external hard drive, an lo and behold it works fine. Then I turn around and put that cable to my hard drive, and that works fine! So the cable and the hub don't get along... Oh, well...

Koutech 4-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCI Add-On Card Model IO-PU430

3 out of 5 eggs It works, but... 12/10/2013

This review is from: Koutech 4-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 PCI Add-On Card Model IO-PU430

Pros: - It functions.
- In principle, it would be nice for older computers or when you've run out of PCIe.
- USB 3.0 is fast.

Cons: - This card, however, isn't fast (and I kinda figured this would happen going in).
- Vertical USB slots are an interesting choice, but only just barely allow access in my case.

Other Thoughts: On a 66MHz PCI bus, this probably could keep up, but mine transferred just as fast (~30MBps) on the built in USB 2.0 on the computer I was intending to use it in.

Before you ask: yes, I did set the jumper to 66MHz mode, didn't make a difference. No, there were no other PCI cards installed. Yes, I had power running to it.

Time for my first Newegg RMA (out of a dozen orders).

ICY DOCK ToughArmor MB992SK-B Full Metal 2 x 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Great for hot swapping.
- Feels cool to unlock your drive back, pop the lever out, and pull the drive out.

Cons: - Bottom bay is a tad tight, but not unusable.

Other Thoughts: To everyone: this is designed to go in a 3.5" Floppy Bay. It is by no means a method of mounting 2.5" drives in a 3.5" HDD bay. Floppies and hard drives have different mounting points. Got it? Good.

Anyways, I enjoy playing with this more than I should...
