7-Port USB 3.0 Combo HUB (3.0 x 4, 2.0 x 3) w/ AC Adapter - 12V/2.5A
Maintain SuperSpeed connectivity for all your external USB devices with this 7-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 also features three USB 2.0 ports for connecting to older devices. It comes with a 12 VDC, 2.5A power supply, allowing it to provide the sufficient power for self-powered devices (e.g., 2.5" portable hard drives).
The hub measures only 5.5" wide, 1" high, and 3.2" deep. It features power and activity LEDs on the front, so you can always know the status of your connections. Two of the USB 3.0 ports are on the back and two are on top within easy reach. 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.
CONS: does not support apple usb cords
feels very light and cheap, not sturdy at all
PROS: More forgiving than most USB 3.0 hubs
CONS: Wish it had 10 ports.
I got another USB 3 hub from Microcenter and immediately the mac complained about it. I had no such problems with this unit.
PROS: Good speed
PROS: product great well design and work awsome
CONS: usb cable provide with product only 3 feet oand its a particuler plug so difficult to have a longer one
With RMA for refund - do not want a replacement.
Poor quality, looks and feels cheap.
Not a typical Monoprice product.
CONS: garbage..cheaply made,usb input connection weak..green lights indicating port so dim they are only visible at night..
PROS: - Worked as expected before it broke
CONS: - Internal USB connector is weak and breaks
PROS: Fast, strong and quality construction, have status LED. Extremely cheap if you compare to other major brands like Belkin, D-Link, Startech, etc. For the point of the provided USB cable is not a problem for me, 3 feet is long (a lot) enough for my 27" iMac (2013) and the cable isn't a weird cable type, it's the same type of cable I got with all my three 2.5" portable HDDs (Iomega, Patriot and Seagate)?!?
CONS: May have 7x USB3.0 ports instead of 4 (+3 USB2), but in fact many devices are still USB2 like printers, slim USB DVD writers and others. Only external HDDs and flash drives are USB 3.0 now. May also have a little bit brighter status LED.
I get full USB 3.0 (average was 102MB/s write 124MB/s read) speed on all 4 of the blue ports, and it recognized WD and Seagate drives immediately on all of them.
Downside: it feels really flimsy - case is loose, and makes noise if you pick it up like it isn't snug around the board inside it. Seems like it might fall apart if it took a short fall (even off my desk).
It also doesn't supply enough power to any of the ports (2.0 or 3.0) to power the Apple Super Drive - though after researching other USB 3.0 hubs, there don't appear to be ANY that can yet.
Lights (1 red = power 7 green = USB) are a bit dim on the front, but they do function properly.
PROS: When it works it's a great hub. Love the 7 ports.
CONS: The first one I received, the female input on the hub broke. I returned it. Don't remember why but I had to sent the replacement back. I was sent another. It worked. Six months later I would hear my computer disconnect and then connect. The devices that are connected to the hub would show up on my computer as being connected. Figured out this would happen every time I pulled out my keyboard tray (vibrations on my computer desk) Checked all connections, no problem. At one point I had the hub dangling over the edge of the shelf. Finally I pinched the female part of the input plug for a tighter fit. So far it's working, though I am afraid to touch it for fear of ruining the connection.
