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.

Apart from that, they have the same chips inside and so I should perform the same.

Size Name: 4-port black Verified Purchase
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.

It has a really nice design and work with 3.0 usb port. It's just very frustrating to plug in the usb. It's extremely difficult. Already returned the product. Viva Amazon Prime.

I received a complimentary replacement from Anker, I have to give kudos to the Anker customer service. Within couple of days of review, I received multiple offers to receive a placement and give the company a chance to make it right. The plug in issue is not there anymore and the hub works great. I increased my rating from 2 to 5 stars, simply because great customer service and decent product. I'd definitely would purchase another one from the company if I should need one in the future.

Size Name: 4-port with Adapter Verified Purchase
I purchased this USB 3.0 hub to go with my new home system, and am very pleased with the unit. It's very compact, but still manages to space the USB 3.0 ports out better than some of the competing USB 3.0 hubs. I can actually plug in my huge USB 3.0 'big-toe' flash drive and still be able to use the USB plug next to it.

The hub is powered, and I've tested it so far with two simultaneous devices... it seems to be providing plenty of juice for them. As for performance, it appears to be working flawlessly... pushing my USB 3.0 devices as fast as they'll go. From what I can tell, the hub's max throughput is as fast as or faster than any of the devices I currently have to plug in to it.

And I can't conclude the review without mentioning the exemplary customer service from the hub's manufacturer. When I received the hub, I was disappointed to note that the included interface cable was too short to reach from my system up to my desk; I would guess they put together the package with laptop use in mind... it's certainly light-weight and compact enough. I contacted the manufacturer and they bent over backwards to make it right. And above that, at my request they almost immediately updated the product description to explicitly note the cable length, so that future buyers would have that information. I can honestly say that I was quite pleasantly surprised. They seem quite dedicated to supporting their customers, both current and future.

Based on my experience, I can definitely recommend both the Anker hub and the manufacturer behind it.
