22 December 2013
  • Summary: Didn't work with PC until updated the PC's USB 3.0 driver. Go figure. Bought locally 2yrs ago for four oh. Still same. Thinking about getting another - locally.
  • Pros: Works with everything connected to it. Edimax AC1200 (on USB 3.0 extension, too); Seagate 2TB in external Rosewill case, usb powered; and, Seagate 2TB in different external Rosewill case with own power. Various other LAN adapters and USB 3.0 and 2.0 devices. The included 4A power supply is excell...
  • Cons: Huh? Maybe the Luda Chris price @ egg.

Worthless

Santanu L., Newegg
18 August 2013
  • Summary: I've used Trendnet products before, They have worked fine before. This one is a total lemon. I did not purchase this from NewEgg, the source was our local Micro Center.
  • Pros: None - does not work at all for me.
  • Cons: Tried to hook this up to my computer. The motherboard is Asus M5A99 R2.0. It has two built-in USB 3.0 ports on the back and one USB3.0 connector for front connections. Does not work on any of them If I plug in a 3.0 device directly to the ports on the computer, they show up immediately, so ports ...

Don't bother with this one.

11 August 2013
  • Summary: I have the V1.0R version. Only one USB 3.0 port works, and then only intermittently. I initially thought it may be my drives (3TB WD My Books) but alas this is not the case as they work spectacularly when plugged into my desktop 3.0 usb ports.
  • Pros: None discovered
  • Cons: Does not function

A functional USB3 HUB

ashley g., Newegg
4 June 2013
  • Summary: This works just fine as a powered USB 3 hub that looks pretty good and tucks away to the rear of my laptop. Except for the one mouse, it is serving my work needs perfectly and I am pretty happy with the purchase.
  • Pros: I have a MS SurfacePro and it has only one USB3 port with no Ethernet port. I have an external USB touch monitor that doubles as a 3 Port USB 2 hub. I have a wireless keyboard + wireless mouse + thumb drive plugged into the monitor. So all I do when I sit is plug 2 jacks from my monitor into my S...
  • Cons: I would have been happier with a price around $40. I had only a single problem with this. For a weekend when I got the box, I used it at home as a test. I have a wireless Logitech mouse I've used for a year and it has no lags or slow starts. Plugged into the TU3-H4, the mouse now has some lags. N...

  • Summary: Now it's "open ticket tag" and over a month later. I can't see this ending happily. I'd say steer clear of these folks; the products might work well, and often they do, but they can't seem to fix my issue at all.
  • Pros: They may come later...
  • Cons: Customer service is still not following up on my issue effectively. After an hour of "firmware update" requests from foreign techs, I had to go back to their RMA (didn't they do it online when I was talking to them for an hour?) system and now, it's not showing up; the RMA I mean. The person who ...

I wonder where these come from...

Scott F., Newegg
18 February 2013
  • Summary: In general, I'm not crazy about the build quality. I've been a contractor for a largish internet search company here in the NYC area and I've seen cable "viruses" that will, from a faulty cable, bend pins in ANOTHER device and so on. It happens. Really!
  • Pros: It's great when it works...
  • Cons: ..but when it doesn't, it doesn't. I have had *two* now. The first one was dead after 5 (count 'em!), five minutes. It just failed to keep powered on. Had to take it back to M****C***** where I bought it over Christmas. I exchanged it January '13, later when I was in the area. The Second one work...

Cool to look at, But that is about all...

Timothy L., Newegg
7 January 2013
  • Summary: Don't get me wrong, if you plug a flash drive or a phone into it, it will work. But don't even think about plugging in a portable HDD along with those other devices because it will tax the supplied wall wart causing this thing to heat up and do all sorts of exciting things, like randomly shut off,...
  • Pros: It has blinky lights , like a small spaceship.
  • Cons: If it was a spaceship, it would have crashed cause the power cuts out!!!

Good USB Hub - but

Rodger Z., Newegg
4 January 2013
  • Summary: I took off only one star because it didn't work with the entron chip. Because I'm not sure if that's a Trendnet problem or an entron problem. If I connect a usb 2.0 device directly into the entron ports, not the hub, it connects no problem. More usb 3.0 strangeness that needs to be fixed!
  • Pros: Works great with USB 3 devices. Comes with all cables, good power supply. Compact form. I bought this hub to replace my old usb 2.0 hub on my main system that has a gigabyte ga-z68ap-d3 motherboard. This board uses the entron ej168 usb 3.0 controller chip. Unfortunately it only recognizes usb 3.0...
  • Cons: Possible incompatibility with some motherboards/usb 3.0 chips

Died after 55 weeks

MICHAEL P., Newegg
7 August 2012
  • Pros: Works well, when it works...
  • Cons: But mine died after 55 weeks, three weeks after the warranty expired. Kind of an expensive rental if you ask me.
