This device does support `hot swapping' and transfers data up to 5Gbps, which is fairly fast.
Martin A Hogan
All of the devices you plug in share the bandwidth of the port you connect them to, but the independent power source means they can all be charged or powered at once.
Nathan Andersen
The Bolse 7 port USB 3.0 hub is an excellent way to expand/add more USB 3.0 ports to a computer.

This is a nice USB 3.0 port multiplier and it works well in some applications. You really need to understand the limitations of such devices when using it with your computer and external devices. A port multiplier splits the communication rate and power from the USB port to allow it to be shared with the four ports on the hub. In the case of power, a USB 2.0 port can supply 500 milliamps of power and a USB 3.0 port can supply 900 milliamps that will be split 4 ways if you have four devices plugged in.

If your devices are self-powered by their own power supplies you should have no problems. Devices like printers, scanners and some USB Hard disk drives (With external power supplies) are examples of this. In my testing I used a USB powered hard disk drive (HDD) and three USB memory sticks. When I plugged in the port expander all four devices where present in my computer drive list then they disappeared one at a time by themselves and then the USB 3.0 port stopped working I had to disconnect the hub and reboot my computer to get the USB port on the computer active again.

In the example I used for testing, all four devices require power from the USB port to operate and as a result issues occurred. Low power can result in memory loss or the improper writing and reading of data. Using one of these devices or two worked but then it is not a fully functional port multiplier if the power requirements exceed the power capabilities of your computer's USB port like when I was trying to use 3 or 4 devices simultaneously. Had I used my example of a self-powered scanner, printer, a USB HDD with a power supply and a memory stick then all would have been working fine.

The unit is nicely designed and lightweight for portability weighing only 2 ¾ ounces.

Size Name: 7 Port USB 3.0 White
Length: 7:14 Mins
It seems today that every accessory I get is USB enabled. This means that I have a ton of things to plug into my computer and my many USB ports are quickly used up. This Bolse port adapter is a very useful tool to have and I put together a video of its features and functionality. I hope it answers your questions and if you have any more feel free to write a comment and I will try to help you out.

This port multiplier has a lot of useful features that can be helpful for you. It has 7 USB 3.0 ports that are downward compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 ports. The unit comes with a 12 VDC power supply rated at 2.5 amps to help power your USB devices. When I was using something in the USB port then a blue LED lit up beside each port that has something connected to it. The port multiplier uses the VL812 chip and it offers high performance and utilizes low power. I like that the cables all come out of the same side of the hub to allow for better cable management and routing.

Many USB accessories are powered by their own power supplies like a printer, scanner or larger Hard Disk Drives. Other items like USB thumb drives, lower powered hard drives and USB memory card adapters require power to work. Even a low power external HDD that is powered by the USB port can draw 600 mA to operate. The USB 3.0 port from your computer can only supply up to 900 mA of power at 5 VDC. USB 2.0 can supply 500 mA at 5 VDC. Without a power supply adapter then having 7 ports is a problem unless you have a power supply like the one that comes with this hub to make it work properly. This is a good hub and the power supply is what makes it perform so well. Without the external power supply the hub would only receive power from your computer's USB 3.0 port and it would have to split 900 mA between the 7 ports.

Size Name: 7 Port USB 3.0 White
I bought a four port hub years ago thinking that would be more than enough ports for all of my devices. Boy was I wrong! This 7-Port is perfect for all your USB devices.

I decided to first test the Bolse 7-port USB 3.0 Hub to my computer which did not have a 3.0 USB port since the hub is USB 2.0 backwards compatible. I connected multiple flash drives and got a USB 2 transfer rate of 10MB/second instead of the typical 17.06MB/second. Using it with my PC that has the 3.0 port, I was able to use my 3.0 external hard drive and 2.0 devices with ease. There was no hang time and the data transfers quickly.

Since it comes with it's power supply, the hub is not dependent on the PC for power. It can evenly distribute the power through all the ports.

It has all 7 ports located conveniently on the front and is heavy enough to hold its position on your desk. It has lights to indicated the ports in use. It can't charge your iPad though.

Overall, a great choice for your USB needs. Who knows, I might need a 14 port one in the future!

**I was given a sample to test and review in exchange for an honest review**

Size Name: 7 Port USB 3.0 White
My computer has one USB port in the back and two in the front, which turns out not to be enough. Both my mouse and keyboard are wireless so that requires two ports and my Web Cam (Video adapter) requires a USB port. I also have a few flash drives. When I want to charge something, that requires another port, so having seven (7) ports is great, particularly since it is in such a small device. The layout is convenient with the seven (7) ports in the front and the DC plug and USB cable to PC in the back.

Set up is plug `n play and runs on DC with a proprietary plug (H 1" X W 1.5" x L 2.5") that has to go into a lower outlet on the wall or on the outside of a surge protector. Your PC or Mac (updates from Apple are required for use) is plugged in by an enclosed USB 3.0 data cable. This Hub is very similar in power transfer and compatibility as the Bolse 5Gbps Super Speed 7-Port USB 3.0 HUB with 2.5A Power Adapter and USB 3.0 Cable (VIA VL812 Chipset), Compatible with USB 2.0 and just as good.

The Bolse Hub will charge my iPhone 4S and my iPod, but will not charge my iPad mini, which is something to keep in mind. However, it will charge almost all current battery banks on the market. Here is a short list:

PowerGen PGMPP8400 8400mAh External Battery Pack High Capacity Power Bank Charger Dual USB output for Apple iPhone 5 4s 4 3Gs 3G, iPod Touch, iPad mini 1 2 3 4, The New iPad 3/ HTC sensation, XE, XL, One X S V, Thunderbolt, Inspire 4G , EVO 3D, EVO 4G, ....
