Sub-Par, Not worth the price.
Pros: 1. Good aesthetic design. 2. Power button would be very handy for turning of my automatic-off External HDDs and similar devices if said devices worked properly when plugged into the Hub.
Cons: 1. Does not work with my 4 Powered external hard drives, even if only one is connected. (Causes data errors/corrupts file system) 2. "USB 3.0 3ft. Cable" does not appear to be a 3.0 cable.(extremely thin compared to all other 3.0 cables I have) 3. Keeps disconnecting and reconnecting certain small adapters/transmitters at random, although infrequent and unpredictable.(Wireless transmitter for headset, mouse, keyboard, and USB SD Card readers.) again, even if only one is connected at a time. 4. Not good for charging devices, especially more than one at a time. I cannot call this a flaw, though. The description provided states the power supply specifications.
Overall Review: As a side note, I feel I should mention that I am very computer savvy, and know for a fact that the problems do not come from my computer, software, operating system, or available system resources. I am not trying to plug in too many thing for my computer to handle. I feel that it is too light to contain sufficient hardware to operate as described. It appears to me to be one of those "knock-off products" made to imitate a legitimate piece of equipment. I am concerned about fire hazards, but can't say for sure any exist. If I had known the things I know now, when I was choosing a hub, I would have gladly paid a higher price for one that works as described. My decision of which hub to purchase was based on the price, primarily. I knew the cheapest ones with 10 ports would be made with cheap materials and could possibly be hazardous. The price of this product gave it credibility.
