Excellent addition to my backup needs – Super Speed USB 3.0 Aluminum Alloy 4-Port HUB (Black) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Compact, solid design with indicator lamps. Positive, tight, connection to USB plugs inserted. Positive connection of supplied USB3 cable from hub to PC. USB 3 cable supplied is effective in both length and data transfer capacity. Installing the hub simplifies connection of USB2/3 devices as connected hub is at front of work space.
Cons:
None for the way the device works. It just went into service with absolutely no fuss. Would have liked a soft base (perhaps rubber feet) to avoid skidding, or being pushed off, a flat surface. Need to attach power enhancing cable when connecting more than one hard drive, or some other device that uses more than the power supplied by the PC's USB3 port. Supplied power cable a bit short if a mains powered 5V power adaptor is used. Have to use USB extension cable to enable it to reach the power adaptor. Instruction manual does not specify the suitable current rating for the 5V power adaptor.
Other:
Useful device. Transfer rates no different to rates achieved when harddrive connected directly to PC. Just have to keep in mind current drain from attached devices. No problem if all devices are thumb drives or the like.
Bottomline:
Recommend this product.
