Dangerous to USB devices

Michael J., Newegg
3 June 2015
  • Summary: If you're not having problems with this thing yet, start browsing alternatives. If you're having intermittent problems with connectivity, stop using it and DON'T keep it. Originally in the later months of its first use I had things randomly disconnecting now and then and thought it was problems with...
  • Pros: Decent price, 10 ports.
  • Cons: I've lost track of how long I've owned this, but it's possible I've had this about a year though I haven't used it for the past four months. I needed the hub again today for a laptop so I plugged things in and prepared to make use of it. Nothing connected except the hub itself after a good half h...

Coulda stated they were only 3A hubs

Robert M., Newegg
4 November 2013
  • Summary: If the power output is as important to you as it is me I would make sure to find a hub that lists its power output.
  • Pros: They are usb hubs and I needed usb hubs
  • Cons: I looked all over for the power specs and bought these on a hunch that nobody would make a 10 port hub with less than 4A. These are severely underpowered for what I needed.

Doesn't work

Cheryl J., Newegg
1 April 2013
  • Summary: Worked when initially connected. But after rebooting the computer, the ports are dead. The light signifies it is connected, but that's the only sign of life. Have disconnected and reconnected.
  • Pros: Looks nice.
  • Cons: Doesn't work.

Nice Hub

Michael L., Newegg
16 February 2013
  • Summary: If your looking for a well built hub this is it.
  • Pros: This is one of the best USB Hubs I've owned. The power cable and USB cable were both long enough to allow me to place this directly on my work space. It also used it as a charging station for my Blackberry and my Kindle.
  • Cons: None

User Review

Michael A., Newegg
1 February 2013
  • Pros: Some of the USB ports on my motherboard stopped working so I got this as a 'quick fix' to use the rest of my accessories. Works great so far, haven't had any issue. It does use external power but that is great in my opinion, it's very reliable. I have my keyboard/mouse/iphone/headset hooked up, n...

Amazing for block erupters

Stacy, memoryexpress.com
28 February 2014
  • Summary: I have not had this USB hub very long yet, so I'll do another review when I have, but in the meantime it has been great. Steady connection, and lots of power available. Also the way the USB ports are organized makes it great for putting ASIC block erupters on it.
  • Pros: Comes with a 3A power supply Powers 7 Antminer U1 ASIC block erupters at the same time, with no issue Ports are lined up for ease of plugging in devices like ASIC miners (space can be an issue if they are side by side)
  • Cons: If it had a 4A or higher power supply, I could put all 10 ports to use, but for now I'm relegated to 7 or less (since USB 2.0 devices draw 0.5A).

It's Alright

Blaze Balanag, memoryexpress.com
13 August 2013
  • Summary: I originally bought this as a solution to my problem with occupying all my USB slots on my computer, and it works pretty well when it wants to but not up to my standard. Its good for small USB devices like thumb drives and other low powered devices, but its unstable connection problem makes it...
  • Pros: -10 USB 2.0 Ports -Lights notifying a sure connection
  • Cons: -Constant disconnection
