4-Port USB 3.0 HUB w/ AC Adapter - 5V/3.8A
Maintain SuperSpeed connectivity for all your external USB devices with this 4-port USB 3.0 Hub from Monoprice!
This hub features four USB 3.0 ports, which are capable of reaching speeds of up to 5.0 Gbps, while at the same time maintaining full backwards compatibility with USB 3.0/1.1/1.0 devices. It comes with a 5 VDC, 3.8A power supply, allowing it to provide the full 900mA power output required for self-powered devices (e.g., 2.5" portable hard drives) on all four ports.
The hub measures only 4.5" wide, 1" high, and 2.8" deep. It features power and activity LEDs on the front, so you can always know the status of your connections. It uses a USB 3.0 micro-B connector for the connection from the computer, so it can only be connected to a USB 3.0 port.
PROS: Best price and does what I needed it to do.
CONS: minor issue is the light weight. Perhaps a magnet on the base so it could be affixed to my PC case to prevent moving (and to keep the clutter of wires off of my desk).
PROS: Works well with my late 2012 iMac.
CONS: None so far.
"Cons: proprietary USB-3 cord with plug - can't be reused for other products."
FYI, That's a USB 3.0 micro cable that came with it. It is not proprietary. It is a standardized cable, and is used on such devices like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and Note 4.
PROS: Looks nice, comes with Micro USB3.0 cable for data transfer/charging supported devices.
PROS: Everything works
PROS: small enough to fit under my monitor
PROS: Plug n Play. works great. cost effective
CONS: not free
PROS: Works as advertized. No problems. Quality build.
It has power. It has a nice long cable for plugging it into your machine and putting this on your desk. It works every time. Basically the review to me on this would either be a 1 or a 10. It does exactly what it's advertised to do, and it does it for a lot less than every other one I saw out there. I'm happy.
PROS: It's a USB 3.0 hub with power.
It does the hub thing really well
CONS: It doesn't plug itself in.
PROS: Easy hook up.
PROS: Works well, provides power and is USB3
CONS: None really
