Product Description

Capacity:4-port Aluminum Silver

Simplistic. Speedy. Expansive. Complement your computer with added ports and style.

Apple fashion
Solid aluminum body with rounded corners complements your Apple-style desktop or laptop. Ultra-miniature (3.3 × 1.8 × 1.1in) and lightweight (3.9oz), free yourself from cable-chaos and put your workspace back in order - all without taking up too much space.

Intuitive design
The provided velcro strip fixes the hub in place - under the monitor, beside the laptop or wherever seems best to you - and facilitates one-handed plugging and unplugging. Horizontally-positioned ports give a wider berth for over-sized USB connectors. Green LED indicator reveals the power status. Taken together, we've made accessing your data as easy and intuitive as possible.

SuperSpeed × 4
Don't deny your devices access to SuperSpeed ports. With transfer rates of up to 5Gbps, set aside less time for syncing and more time for work (or play). With 4 data terminals to choose from, forget about ever having to switch or unplug again.

System Requirements:
Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 / 10, Mac OS 9.1 and above, or Linux.
Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 users should upgrade to Mountain Lion 10.8.2 or later to avoid unstable connections.

Power Usage Alerts:
- To ensure a stable connection, don't use this hub with high power consumption devices (those exceeding a combined current of 0.9 Amps among all ports) such as some large-capacity hard drives.
- This hub is not meant to serve as a stand-alone charger. It is not compatible with iPads or any other devices with irregular charging requirements.

Additional Notes:
- Some USB 3.0 devices require direct connection to host ports.
- 2.4Ghz wireless devices (keyboards, mice, etc.) may not work around USB 3.0 ports. Try using a USB 2.0 connection instead.

Size: 4-port with Adapter
For people trying to choose between this hub and the apparently similar AK-68UPHUB-02B4U (ASIN B007BWTOHU) at
"[Latest VIA VL812 Chipset] Uspeed USB 3.0 Superspeed 4 Port Hub, USB 3.0 Cable and Power Adapter included, Compatible with Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 Mac OS - Ultra Slim 0.5inch Profile by Uspeed"

the single most important point to note is that THIS one (the larger sized hub) uses a 12V 2A power supply, which can supply 24W to the hub. This should be enough for most situations where you have four bus-powered devices (eg 2.5" drives without power supplies) but it should be noted that the manufacturer states that
"To ensure a stable connection, the connected devices must not exceed a combined current of 3.4A. This is especially important for any devices with high power requirements such as "self-powered" hard drives which draw power from the USB port. We recommend that you avoid simultaneously connecting four or more of such "self-powered" devices."
In principle 4 within-spec bus powered devices COULD hit 3.6 W (900mW per device) and in practice many SSDs draw more than 900mW in brief bursts when there are a lot of back-to-back writes.
So you should think of this device as being able to power 3 power-hungry USB3 devices, and one not-so-power-hungry device (eg a USB2 device or an externally powered device).

Compare with the slim-profile USpeed device. That has a power supply of 5V at 2.5A, so only 12.5W --- basically half what this fuller-sized device offers. Meaning it would be an OK device if you know that your power needs are minimal, ie all, or all but one, of your connected devices will be VERY low power (eg keyboard) or self-powered.

I bought this Anker USB 3.0 4 port splitter on June 21st, 2013 through Amazon. The shape of the product I have looks a little different than what's pictured on this page now (mine is square-shaped), but my order history links back here so the seller must have changed the image and the design of the product. When I first got it, I was very pleased by the price, performance, size, and appearance of the splitter.

It worked well with all my USB devices - wireless mouse, Plantronics audio headset, external hard drives and more. It also worked well on both Windows 8 & 7 devices. Then one fine day about three weeks ago (early September) it just suddenly stopped working. It hadn't been dropped, damaged, subjected to extreme temperature, abused or even improperly stored (I've stored it in the little anti-static plastic sleeve it ships in, and I pack it safely inside my laptop bag).

I'm still trying to reach out to the manufacturer using the information provided by Amazon but I've had no luck. Since it's outside the 60 day return window, I cannot just return it and get my money back or a replacement. And this hasn't inspired confidence in me to buy the same product again despite the good reviews that others have posted. I'm rather disappointed that the device failed on me in such a short time. If it had died after a year or more, I wouldn't have bothered to even write this review.

Sadly, there aren't many USB 3.0 splitters in this price range to begin with, let alone find ones that have positive reviews. AmazonBasics has a comparable offering but it is extremely backordered and not available until January or February of 2014.

Size: 4-port Aluminum Silver Verified Purchase
The AH430 aluminum hub works very well with my 2012 iMac running OS X 10.9.3 Mavericks. When both USB 2 & USB 3 devices are plugged into the hub, it will appear in the System Information app as two hubs, one on a "USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Bus" with the USB 3 items attached to it, & the other on a "USB Hi-Speed Bus" with the USB 2 items attached to that.

Blackmagic Disk Speed Test shows that it can deliver USB 3 speeds to USB 3 devices even when both USB 2 & 3 ones are plugged into it. I saw no difference in transfer speeds between plugging a fast USB 3 hard drive into the hub & directly into one of the iMac's ports.

Since the hub does not have a separate power supply, it is limited to supplying a maximum total of 900 ma (0.9 amps) to all the devices plugged into it, & no more than 500 ma (0.5 amps) to any USB 2 device. This means it will charge my iPhone 5s, but at only half the rate of Apple's 1 amp "cube" charger. For those using a wired Apple aluminum keyboard, note that the USB ports on the keyboard's built-in hub can supply more than 500 ma to an iPhone to charge it, but only if the keyboard is plugged directly into the Mac. If the keyboard is plugged into this (or any other) hub, the iPhone will only get 500 ma.

However, unlike the keyboard this hub still supplies power when the Mac is asleep (the green light stays lit) so it will continue to charge an iPhone when the Mac is asleep, if slowly.

The fit & finish of the AH430 is excellent & the supplied USB 3 cable appears to be a rugged, high quality one. However, the one I got was a little stiff & 22" long, slightly less than the advertised two feet.

On a final note, I want to mention that Anker's customer support was great. I had some questions about their hubs & my email about that was answered promptly & completely.
