HooToo HT-UH006 Compact SuperSpeed USB 3.0 7-Port Hub w/ Latest VIA VL812 Chipset, 5V/3A Power Adapter, USB 3.0 Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Speed is good, no difference in read/write speeds compared to connecting a device directly into the native USB port

Cons: LED indicators turn off eventually for connected devices, not an indication of actual connected state
Disconnects external powered 3.5" drives under heavy usage
Entire hub may disconnect even without any load
Not "compact", this hub is in fact quite large

Other Thoughts: This hub worked well at first inspection, I connected four external USB 3.0 external 3.5" drives to it. All were detected correctly and speed tests were impressive. The hub itself is quite large and thick, I would not describe it as compact.

My externals go to sleep on inactivity and spin up under usage, and it seems this doesn't work well with the LED indicators. I noticed quite often, most if not all of the LEDs on the hub would be off, even though all drives were connected and accessible.

All was good for a while, but after continued usage, errors began to show. Under heavy write load in concurrent operations, a drive may disconnect from the hub. The entire hub may also disconnect from my computer randomly, even without any disk usage.

Now to be fair, these scenarios probably only occurred between three to five times each. Meaning in 10 months of ownership, there have been six to ten instances of failure, each time resolved by unplugging everything and reconnecting. May not sound like much this is unacceptable to me. The first few times I tolerated it, chalking it off to bad luck, but the consistency of the errors became very disappointing.

I have since replaced this hub with another brand, no problems so far, but we'll see. This hub has officially become a paperweight though, and I won't be trying another HooToo product.
