Completely fine

James, memoryexpress.com
16 August 2014
  • Summary: I like this hub. I like the short cable, as I often use this with either my laptop or my Raspberry Pi. If I need something longer, that's what I have a bin of USB cables for. I think this is a perfectly fine hub.
  • Pros: Read the product description.
  • Cons: I don't adore how far the casing body extends around the ports - seems a little bulky, but meh. More ports would be nice too.

Good hub, short cable

Aaron, memoryexpress.com
16 January 2014
  • Summary: Decent hub, performance-wise equal to the expensive D-Link. Having used both, I found the D-Link flaky, and this one is pretty solid.
  • Pros: Haven't had any issues with this one, works fine for me. Solid hub.
  • Cons: Incredibly short cord (just under 4 feet) will cause you to go mental trying to find a place to put it.

Garbage hardware

18 July 2013
  • Summary: not worth the price or the time wasted
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: included USB cable is short USB 3.0 devices would at times be recognized as 2.0 devices, required being unplugged and plugged in again to make it recognize it correctly - this does not happen when plugging the same device into any of the USB 3.0 ports on the laptop. USB 2.0 enabled connection f...

Sam, memoryexpress.com

  • Summary: wonderful devices
  • Pros: I got four of this device connected to my mac mini 2012 and they have yet to fail me. I only got them about 2 months connecting keyboard,4 hard drives and I even boot the mac mini from an external hard drive using this USB 3 HUB. So far so good.
  • Cons: none so far.

Flakey

Eric, memoryexpress.com
28 January 2013
  • Cons: I've had this USB 3.0 Hub for about a year. I'm going to replace it. Windows complains that "this device could work faster" and some USB devices don't connect properly through it. I would not recommend this product....

Short cord, short lived

Brad, memoryexpress.com
8 August 2012
  • Summary: Had it for about a year on my nice clean desktop, was one of the first USB 3.0 hubs MemEx stocked. It's been about a year, and now has died. After Win 7 recognizes it, won't detect anything plugged into it, but will still provide power, and somehow Win 7 sees it as a hub.
  • Pros: Worked OK for the first year, decent speed when connecting USB 2.0 or 3.0 devices.
  • Cons: Short stock cord, you'll end up by a longer one as others have said Died just after the warranty was up.

Was expecting USB 3.0 .... but got...?

30 December 2011
  • Summary: So it was basically a waste of time and money.
  • Pros: Looks appealing. Nice packaging.
  • Cons: None of my USB 3.0 devices will operate as such when attached via this hub. They all work fine when plugged directly into the motherboard ports. But when using this hub windows 7 warns that it detects a USB 3.0 device attached via 2.0 port or hub. Also the host side cable is short to the poin...

It's ok, but cord way too short.

Jared, memoryexpress.com
4 May 2011
  • Summary: I didn't like the length of the upstream cord (from this unit to pc) it's just 41". Should have been 4 feet at least (6 feet optimal). Makes it hard for placement. You can easily get a longer cord that will fit (the standard USB) when using USB 2.0 devices I haven't tried the standard USB cord with...
  • Pros: very small/compact, almost tiny. , hi-speed USB hub works great with 2.0, and Mac. , Doesn't overheat.
  • Cons: No indicator lights - just showing power light, , USB connector (upstream) is way to short (only 41" - just shy of 4 feet) for easy placement or for shelving. , you will probaby end up buying yet another cord. , upstream connector looks slightly different.
