Tek Republic TUH-200 USB 3.0 + USB 2.0 4-Port Hub
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good Little Widget 09/04/2014

This review is from: Tek Republic TUH-200 USB 3.0 + USB 2.0 4-Port Hub

Pros: Small, simple, cheap

Cons: Not a powered hub

Other Thoughts: I got this for sticking all of the little nubs for my wireless keyboards and mice into (I have three of them) for my laptop, so that they didn't occupy most of my USB ports. It works very well for that purpose, and it's easy to tuck into the same pouch as the mouse when I pack the laptop up (I just leave the nubs in it).

It is not a powered hub, and when I tried plugging it into the 2.1 amp "supercharger" port on my laptop with some high-drain USB devices plugged in (an external HDD and a couple of high-power WiFi units) it got extremely warm and the devices behaved erratically, probably the wires inside are too small for drawing that much current. Not an issue for the keyboard/mice nubs (they draw less than 0.1 amp each), but something to avoid.

Since that isn't something you're supposed to even try with unpowered USB hubs, I'm not dinging it for that.
