This review is from: Orico DCU3-2P Dual-Port USB 3.0 Hub with 3.3-Ft USB 3.0 Extension Cable (Black)
Pros: Handy to get the port on top of the work-surface for quick & fast file transfers, but I wouldn't look for long, SPEEDY sustained ones. I tested on two machines,
One very new HP Pavillion HPE with native USB 3 ports; I get 70 MB/s write and 180 MB/s read to a USB but using the extension, speed drops to 40 write, 30 read.
On an older HP Pavillion using an add-in card from Startech, with the cable the PC delivers 60 MB/s write, 40 MB/s read. (not too shabby).
So, it can depend on architecture.
Cons: No matter WHAT happens, the speed is always SLOWER than a direct connection to the PC port, though. It's handy, but I expected no performance degradation
Other Thoughts: Would have been nice if the LED did something than just stay "lit", like show, maybe file acess??? something useful to me?READ FULL REVIEW
