TP-LINK UH700 USB 3.0 7 port Desktop Hub, with Power Adapter
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Not perfect but does get the job done. 01/19/2015

This review is from: TP-LINK UH700 USB 3.0 7 port Desktop Hub, with Power Adapter

Pros: Item arrived well packaged. Upon unpacking a standard green TP-Link box revealed itself with the ever exciting USB 3.0 hub. Before I got this item I had an idea of what I would like to see in a hub such as this and I was both surprised and disappointed when I took it out of the box. The hub itself has a nice clean non flimsy look but not over the top either. Hub comes packaged with a USB 3.0 to micro B connector cable, power supply and a manual. I liked its small footprint, 7 usb connection ports and the fact that it worked and improved the transfer speed between my devices and allowed me to use it as a multi item charging station for my phones, tablets etc and has performed well in that respect.

Cons: I was disappointed when I took this unit out of the box because I was expecting a heavy brick but instead got this quite light box. This being a USB hub I would expect it to be heavy and securely hold down all the connection cables connected to this. This was not the case, just the slightest tug on one of the cables and the whole hub was on the move. I do understand that TP-Link had to do some design cuts but I believe they could have solved this by: a) making a unit out of a heavier material, b) including a double sided adhesive, c) placed a magnet or magnets at the bottom of the unit. The other thing I did not like about this unit is that it came with a huge power supply and although the hub itself has a small footprint the power supply does not.

Other Thoughts: I'd like to see this unit with at least some magnets to hold it down. It would be great if I could just attach it to my PC case at the spot I want it to be. Perhaps I will try a mod of some sort later on. I took an egg off for the large power supply, the light weight of the unit and the thickness and rigidness of the pc connection cable. The unit itself does not look bad, does function as intended. I tested this unit with a disk benchmark utility ATTO and although speeds vary they are mostly due to the features of the device being connected. My usb drives and portable usb hard drives did show better transfer speeds compared to USB 2.0 however the same drives on the hubs 3.0 ports performed approx 0.3 MB/s slower than they did when connected directly to the PC's 3.0 port and that was pretty consistent throughout all my devices.

ASUS X99-DELUXE LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Packaging and design not what you'd expect 01/14/2015

This review is from: ASUS X99-DELUXE LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I'v had several of these come through my bench and in general they do seem very nice. Color design, functionality and state of the art components.

Cons: As all newly released hardware a buggy Bios is to be expected. Internal box holding the motherboard is poorly designed as many of these boards end up with a bent or damaged memory slot from a bump on the box. This also goes for the implementation and location of the bios flashback button. Its poor location on board (corner) and design make it prone to easily damage.

Western Digital WD AV-25 WD2500BUCT 250GB 5400 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Just a followup to my initial review of this product. I have not had any issues to date with this item and it is serving its purpose perfectly. Low temperature-low noise.

Cons: Mechanical drive, not very good for building a portable lightweight system.

Other Thoughts: I have used this for over an year and it has been very reliable. Still beats SSD with storage capacity vs price.
