HooToo® HT-UH007 USB 3.0 HUB (4 Port, Bus-Powered, Built-in 1ft USB 3.0 Cable)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Loses connection frequently 01/07/2014

This review is from: HooToo® HT-UH007 USB 3.0 HUB (4 Port, Bus-Powered, Built-in 1ft USB 3.0 Cable)

Pros: Great design

Cons: Unreliable

Other Thoughts: Loses connection constantly. Have plugged in a USB Blu Ray Player and a USB external Hard Drive. Both had this problem. I was using a USB 2 foot extender cable because the 1 foot integrated cable was not long enough. Device may not be able to handle this. I know my extender cable is good because it works directly connected to a number of peripherals. Have not tested without the extender cable because I NEED the extender cable.

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Can slip any 2.5 HD in without tools and go.
Works like a charm (until...)

Cons: Not a robust connector - will break after extended use.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this unit from a Newegg competitor and absolutely loved it because it was cheap, toolless, and worked as advertised, that is, until the rear connector broke rendering it completely useless. And that was after about 4 months of usage. I would bring it into work every day, so it was unplugged and replugged twice daily. Over the last month I noticed that the drive would suddenly disappear from windows more and more. I discovered that this was because the rear connector housing was so flimsy that every day it became more detached from the circuit board to which it was soldered, until finally no connection could be made. This is not a defect they can fix unless the manufacturer spends more money to properly engineer the rear connector. Too bad, everything else about it rocks.

LITE-ON USB 3.0 12X External Blu-ray Disc Writer Model eHBU212-08 LightScribe Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Works well ... but has USB 3.0 cable issues 07/31/2012

This review is from: LITE-ON USB 3.0 12X External Blu-ray Disc Writer Model eHBU212-08 LightScribe Support

Pros: Has handled everything I tried to use it for without issue.

Cons: The included cable is short (16") AND other USB cables do not fit in the type B port on the back of the unit correctly.

Other Thoughts: WARNING. 3rd party USB cables do not seem to work on this unit. The cable that comes with the unit fits properly in the unit's type B port, however, other USB cables I tried (and I tried 2 different ones) do not fit correcty in the port. There is a 1/8" flange around the port that blocks other cables from making a complete connection (as in the flange prevents the plug from inserting the last 1/8 of an inch). This renders 3rd party cables useless, and creates a big headache for people who need to replace the cable with a longer one (which--given the length of the supplied cable--will be MANY people, including myself). The solution is to buy an extended cable, so you can plug the included cable into the unit (as it's the only one that fits it seems) and then extend it to your computer.
