    Does this need to be plugged into an AC outlet for normal use?? Or is the AC adapter just for charging other things?
    David C on Jan 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: If you're using to add additional USB Ports to your PC to connect your USB peripherals, then NO, you don't need to plug-in the AC adapter.
    If you're planning to use as a charging Station, then YES.
    Most Wireless devices draws close to 1 Amp.

    does not support Apple products, very disappointed
    Overall I was very disappointed with this product. For some reason it did not support Apple products via their usb cords and did not mention this in the product description and since that was one of the main functions I was purchasing it for it made it all but useless for me.

    CONS: does not support apple usb cords
    feels very light and cheap, not sturdy at all

    Better than you may realize
    I have been hunting for a USB 3.0 hub for some time. One item I attach to a hub is Monoprice's Microscope [ 60x, 250x Digital Microscope with Suction Cup Stand and Observation Pad Product 11613]. It is a USB 2.0 device and has always worked fine, even directly attached to a USB 3.0 port on the PC. However, when I tried four USB 3.0 hubs, all caused a Windows 8.1 error that would not let the microscope connect. Well, this hub allowed it to connect on one of the USB 3.0 ports. No doubt it is a microcode problem in the other hubs, but this one works!

    PROS: More forgiving than most USB 3.0 hubs

    CONS: Wish it had 10 ports.

    Works great!
    I haven't had the product that long but so far it has worked well. I hooked two USB 3 and two USB 2 drives to it on a Mountain Lion 2012 Macbook with USB 3. I then transfered multiple TB between them, formatted drives, etc. and I had no problems. I got ~150MB/s between the USB 3 drives, and ~27MB/s between the USB 2 drives.

    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
    Works well

    CONS: None

    i would sugest monoprice since its there home brand to put a 6 feet usb cable since its a particuler plug being the hub

    CONS: usb cable provide with product only 3 feet oand its a particuler plug so difficult to have a longer one

    The design of this hub is a real masterpiece of art! The designer who decided to put 5 rear facing ports + 2 ports on the top is a GENIUS! All other 7 ports hubs I own had all front facing ports which is crap for cables management on your desk or on the other have all rear facing ports which is crap for connecting USB flash drives many time a day. This Monoprice hub is elegant, powerful and extremely well designed!

    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.

    Does the job so far, some little issues, but nothing critical
    It does seem to work fine with my USB 2.0 gear (USB powered scanner - Canoscan LiDe25 , and 2TB Iomega drive), but it didn't recognize the external hard drive right away, had to unplug and replug it for it to show up. No random disconnects so far like my old Rosewill USB 2.0 hub.

    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.

    Over all the hub is good. Not sure if the female USB3 input is faulty or did I do something. Maybe cheap components. It's working good now, just afraid that something will go wrong again. It's been working OK for about two months now with no problems. Just afraid to touch it.

    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.

    Cannot recommend this product
    The unit I received was DOA. It had a cheap, flimsy feel and the included USB 3.0 cable did not fit well. Would not work on either a Windows 7 or OS X Mountain Lion computer. When the power light came on, it was very dim. Neither USB 3.0 nor USB 2.0 ports worked, either with or without the power supply attached.

    With RMA for refund - do not want a replacement.

    PROS: None

    Poor quality, looks and feels cheap.
    Not a typical Monoprice product.

    PC Connection Broke 5 Months after Warranty
    Worked well for not quite 1.5 years before failing. Then the internal solder connection for the USB 3.0 Micro-B plug broke. As this price isn't too special for a 7-port USB 3.0 hub, I'd look for something else.

    PROS: - Worked as expected before it broke

    CONS: - Internal USB connector is weak and breaks

    7 Port USB 3.0
    Not recommended at this point in time until Monoprice has thoroughly tested again. Maybe it needs a firmware upgrade to resolve some of these issues I've been having.

    PROS: Expanded my USB3.0 peripherals.

    CONS: I've been having trouble with it not turning back on after my computer shuts down. I find that after I re-turn the computer back on, I need to unplug one of the usb 3.0 cable then plug it back in in order for the device to turn back on. Not sure if anyone else is having this trouble. Also, sometimes I loose connectivity of one of the 4 usb 3.0 drives. This is happening on both Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit, and Windows 8 32 Bit. Also, the naming of this device is misleading...saying that it is a 7 port USB 3.0, when there is only 4 USB 3.0 ports. Monoprice needs to change this to "7-Port USB 2.0/3.0 Combo HUB (USB3.0 x 4, USB2.0 x 3) w/ AC
