This review is from: HooToo® HT-UH007 USB 3.0 HUB (4 Port, Bus-Powered, Built-in 1ft USB 3.0 Cable)
Pros: Great packaging, nice design and over all feel. Came with a 3' USB extension.
I can not recommend this product, if yours works, good for you...
Cons: Did not last but a few months; purchased early Jan 2014 and is now defective on 30 Apr 2014. It functions when it is not connecting and reconnecting every 15 minutes or so.
Other Thoughts: I use this with a USB 3.0 Active Extension and to diagnose which items is causing the reconnect issue I disconnected everything to see if it was the extension. Then one by one I added each item starting with my web cam and USB Microphone and lastly connected this hub alone and sure enough almost instantly the dreaded BEEP.... So just to be sure I checked everything a second time just to make sure it was this device and it was. This might be useful in a pinch if you don't really need any reliable connection but I would not put too much trust in it at all.
Worked fine for about 45 days then my computer started to beep from finding a new device. Did that 1 or 2 times a day over a period of 30 more days. As of a few days ago it reconnects 3 or 4 times an hour and that becomes annoying. It still works, it simply reconnects frequently.
Pros: Looks great, awesome onboard sound, awesome layout as nothing seems to conflict with anything else, seems like a sound motherboard if you can get one that works; two failed for me.
Cons: UEFI or BIOS was useless as it is buggy. The mouse did not work and the arrow keys seemed impossible to use. I would click an arrow key then wait upwards of 30 or more seconds for the BIOS to respond and hopefully move; sometimes it would jump 2 or 3 items or possible I cued several clicks could go either way.
My hardware worked flawlessly on another board before attempting to install on this board so you can rule out 2 video cards, 2 sets of 4x4 or 16GB DDR 3 @2133, 4350 Processor, SSD, plus anything else. I have another working PC that I checked the memory and video cards with; but it is an FM2 Board so I can not check my processor. As I said I do not believe it to be my processor or any other hardware. Some BIOS options stayed when changed while other times they seemed to reset themselves. I used stock settings as I find no real need to over clock anything.
Using an SSD it took upwards of 4 min just to boot into Win7 Ultimate, 64 bit. Once the system was running it seemed to be ok, no BSOD. First board was replace via RMA, thanks NewEgg, and the second board was no better. Given my hardware I was expecting my system to have more zip and zing but it was more like slow and sluggish.
Needless to say I am done with Asus; their products lack any form of quality control what so ever. I had another Asus MB that took upwards of 2 MONTHS, more like some 70 to 80 DAYS to get replaced and I am here to say Asus has grown too big to care about the little guy anymore.
If you can get Asus to provide the correct information as to where to return an item I suggest you use Tracking and Signature plus insurance options to cover the cost of your item because the Asus RMA Process will LOSE your Product and leave you hanging for a replacement.
Worse yet you have a better chance of winning the LOTTERY without purchasing a ticket then you do of Asus lifting a finger to assist you. Granted they FINALLY replaced the defective MB with a REFURBISHED MB and it seemed to work as it should but it took upwards of almost 50 phone calls waiting on hold for days over a period of 80 days just to get a REFURBISHED BOARD. Nothing like spending over $250.00 US Dollars for a REFURBISHED Board.
I say this again Asus has grown too big to care about the little guy, and if you are not purchasing 100 products or more a day, consider yourself a LITTLE GUY...
Other Thoughts: NewEgg has been a Godsend with regards to doing what was right to solve this issue for me. They have gone above and beyond the call of duty to assist me with this issue and for that "I thank you NewEgg..."
I have purchased from NewEgg for over 10 years and not once have I ever had any ISSUE with a product or RMA and I look forward to being a loyal customer for many decades to come.
Pros: Price for a 2TB hard drive is about the only PRO I can think of
Cons: Everything, this drive FAILED about 10 days after installing Win7. It was sluggish and then just stopped working for no apparent reason. No clicking sounds, no unusual whine, nothing, it just stopped and never started again.
Other Thoughts: You really do GET, WHAT YOU PAY FOR, and this experience proved that. Seriously who would not jump on a 2 TB, 64 Meg Cache, 6.0 Gig, 3.5 for 89.00 on sale??? Now I am out the cost of return shipping to boot, so needless to say this drive is not worth it...READ FULL REVIEW
