Vantec UGT-AH700U3-2C 7-Port USB 3.0 + 2 Smart Charging Port Aluminum Hub w/ Power Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This little beauty works like a charm for me. Love the external power supply so I can use a lot of power-hungry devices. Good fit an finish. In Line Power Supply so it doesn't hog three spaces on a power strip. Everything I have plugged into it (USB 2 or 3) has worked flawlessly. Good transfer speeds on both 2 & 3 devices. Since all ports are "powered" I can put a lot of external drives/phones/storage on it at once and has never failed. The two charging ports are a bonus.

Cons: Short cable. No big deal depending on setup, but if you have the PC on the floor and put this on a desk top, it can get a little frustrating for placement. I ordered a longer cable with this, so I'm good.

Other Thoughts: Industrial strength. Nice metal cover and put together well. Have not had any problems with this device. I like it a lot.

4 out of 5 eggs Not Sure 04/20/2015

This review is from: Kingston FCR-MRG2 USB 2.0 microSD / microSDHC Card Reader

Pros: Kinda funny. They will not work in my Vantech USB port extender, nor in the front of my computer. The web site says the cards draw too much power an must be put in the back ports of the computer. Wow. They work in the back ports. Now...if I put a USB 2.0 cheap hub into the port on the front or the Vantech, then plug into the cheap hub, they work like a dream. Not sure.....as they may not work on other's computers. I know the game with mine, but not sure I would be willing to take a chance that they will work with any one else's computer without rigging it up. Middle of the fence on these.

Other Thoughts: I can use Micro SD cards in all the other readers...including Micro to 'standard' SD and no problems. Not sure if these are real. They do work, but in a round-a-bout kinda way for me.

4 out of 5 eggs Now I'm Happy --addendum to previous review 04/14/2015

This review is from: Grandmax Retractable 3.5mm Audio Cable (Black)

Pros: OK, I was upset when the order came. I was shorted nine of what I ordered. Today the remaining 9 came in. Bruce did e-mail me back that he would check into it, but that was all I heard. Still, I have my complete order. Now....the merchandise...these are really handy to have around. Aux in for the car, I have some 3M ear protection that has built in speaker to listen to music on my phone. The quality is very good. I have tried to beat up one of them, but it still works.
