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.
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.

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: 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....
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.
Summary: So it was basically a waste of time and money.
Pros: Looks appealing.
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...
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.
