Summary: I didn't realize that I had a preferred port orientation until I started plugging in dongles and flash drives with status lights. It looked quite silly with all those status lights facing downwards. It's a deal breaker for me and I will be returning it.
Pros: Quality look and feel
Cons: Upside down ports No port status lights Very light
Pros: It's core function works. It is a usb 3.0 hub
Cons: Bad Design. The ports are upside down. You would also think that the 1 2 3 4 dots would light up since they are transparent, but they don't. What's the point of having the added dc plug if it doesn't charge anything unless the computer is on? Even if the computer is on it won't charge an Ipad or ...
Summary: Not even worth the cost of sending back. Design flaw. Non standard USB connector. Insufficient external power supply to handle multiple USB 3.0 external hard drives.
Cons: Junk. Most of the time it is only recognized as a USB 2.0 Hub. Constantly throws power surge errors when plugging low current devices into it. Throughput is less then 20K a second in USB 2 or 3 mode.
Summary: solid unit, comes with high quality cable, and the red/blue power led looks pretty nice, if I had to buy another hub i'd probably buy the same one and pray that it didnt have the same issues.
Pros: Looks very nice sitting on my desk, and I always love when my usb ports have some extra current behind them.
Cons: upon a fresh reboot it will detect my usb 3.0 survivor and vantec usb 3 hd enclosure but after that I have to unplug and replug in the hub for the drives to show up, and that only works 1/2 the time, the rest of the time I have to reboot to be able to detect my drives.
Summary: - The power indicator LED is in the bottom near the back. Good or bad depending if the light bugs you (not a big deal, but the point is that it's at the back) - I didn't get this from NEGG but I normally get most of my stuff from here.
Pros: - 4 x USB 3.0 and it works - Very tiny; the module itself is (obviously) 4 usb ports wide. - The labelled usb 3.0 cable that comes with it is long enough for me. Maybe about a meter long?
Cons: - Not too many devices currently that make use of USB 3.0 speed - The major design flaw (in my opinion) is that all of the ports are UPSIDE DOWN. Now, this is purely aesthetic in most cases but it really bugs me. If I were to put my wireless Logitech receivers (1x K800 kb, 1x G700 mouse) on 2 por...
Summary: The first unit I had, which I reviewed yesterday did in fact fail and begin to drop connections repeatedly after a few days of use. I replaced it earlier today and this one is working fine. Overall this hub is very fast. I will post back here if this one also fails.
Summary: I bought this hub this past Monday and installed it right away. I have 7 USB 3.0 external Hard drives and only 4 USB 3.0 ports in my PC (PCI Add-on cards with 2-ports each). I tested transfer speeds every which way I could to see if there were performance differences between having the source and...
Pros: Using a USB 3.0 ext. hard drive 5400 RPM as the source copying to another identical drive on the same USB 3.0 hub I copied 5 GB of data with a transfer speed of 80MB/sec. It makes no difference whether the drives are on separate controllers, plugged into a USB 3.0 port by itself, or whether the d...
Cons: CONS: - Only 3 ports gained (literature and packaging says it "provides four additional USB 3.00 ports for your PC"). - Reliability is in question. - A bit expensive NOTE: The DUB-1340 4-Port USB 3.0 hub worked great for 3 days. Today on the fourth day it is beginning to drop drives. For a while ...
