I run a Naga Epic Elite for gaming and found that when my computer powers down, so does my USB 3.0 plug. The result of this is that my mouse does not charge when my computer is turned off. This 4 port USB 3.0 Hub not only gives my mouse the power it needs to charge overnight when my computer is turned off, but also gives me two additional 3.0 USB ports. This has been a very good buying experience. I would recommend this product to anyone that needs their USB 3.0 port to charge their peripherals when their CPU is turned off. It performs as it is meant to perform and is an attractive, small unit that can be placed conveniently on top of your computer, desk or you can get some double stick mounting strips and stick it to the side of your computer, if that suits you. The lights are bright, but not distracting as another reviewer wrote. All in all, this is a well built, useful product that is well worth the money.

Uspeed 4 Port USB 3.0 Hub with USB 3.0 Cable and AC Adapter didn't work with either the Western Digital MyPassport or the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex USB 3/2 external hard drives. The drives were not recognized by Windows 7 when plugged into the hub, though they worked fine when plugged into the motherbaord USB 3 port directly. The hub worked with USB 2 sticks plugged into it. Avoid this item!

Warning. My copy of this is clearly defective, but defective in a VERY bad way. USB ports normally supply +5V on the postive rail, but this powered hub provides +12v to the ports. Upon arrival, I tested it out with a device, which did not work. I tried another device, which didn't work either. I fortunately stopped at that point and did some further testing, only permanently destroying two relatively low-cost USB devices. Thank god I hadn't plugged in a phone, SLR, etc. to this.

Although this defective product is probably an anomaly, there should be some degree of QC before a device like this leaves the factory, as it could easily destroy thousands of dollars of equipment in a fraction of a second. I certainly will never be buying another "Anker" product again.

Does not work properly.

This device prevents my MacBook Pro from waking from sleep. I have my mouse plugged into the hub, and I must unplug the hub and revert to using the trackpad. After about a minute of pressing random keys, the computer will wake up and work again. Plug the hub & mouse bak in and all is well until the computer goes to sleep. Then torment once again.

Computer works perfectly when the mouse is plugged directly into the computer.

The unit operates as advertised in USB 3.0. I have to give fewer stars because of the design. The jacks are too close together for many modern USB 3.0 flash drives and their spacing prevents having more than one flash in the four jack hub at one time. You can have other smaller USB standard connectors simultaneously installed but they should have put the power input and the USB source cord on the ends or reverse side from the input jacks. Unfortunately I use Patriot USB 3.0 32 GB flash drives on only one fits at a time.

I had another supposed USB 3.0 hub that would refuse to be seen as a USB 3.0 hub. I would get the message "This device could perform faster if plugged into a super speed USB 3.0 port". This hub connects and is properly seen as a USB 3.0 hub. It is very compact and so far, has worked well. The only issue is the blue LED on the corner. I'm not kidding when I say this thing will blind you! After a day I had to cut a small piece of electrical tape to cover it. The light is so bright, even when covered it is easily seen through the USB 3.0 ports. I took one star off for that LED.

*** Anker Uspeed 4-Port Ultra Slim Hub ***

USB Drives have now gone miniature! I was surprised at how small the new Anker Uspeed 4-Port USB Hub is: only 2 1/2 inches square and less than a half inch thick. It's lightweight but sturdy, very portable. The 4" cord is at the corner which puts the ports at a good angle for multiple accessories.

The four ports have USB 3.0 power and speeds and of course are backwards-compatible with USB 1.1 and 2.0. Mouse, keyboard, hard drives, iPod: all are plug & play on my Mac mini with this hub. Data transfer speeds are up to 5Gbps so the speed limit is set by your devices, not the hub.

There's not much else to say about this streamlined hub-it works great!

*** Anker Uspeed 7-Port Hub ***

It's definitely past time to upgrade to USB 3.0 and the Anker USB 3.0 7 Port with 1 Port for Charging is designed to support USB 3.0 data speeds and power output but can also be used with USB 1.1 and 2.0 as well as to fast-charge a single 2 A device such as an iPad, iPhone, or other Apple product. Its dimensions are about 5 1/2" long x 2 1/4" wide x 7/8" thick. It requires two connections, a USB connection and its own power supply. Both a heavy-duty USB 3.0 cable and the power adapter are included.

It's handy having the USB ports at the end of a cable rather than having to fuss with the ones on the computer. Think of it as a USB extension cord and how convenient electrical extension cords are as opposed to having to fish behind the sideboard or sofa for the outlet. My Mac mini has 4 USB 3.0 ports so using these expands that to seven plus the charging port. It's ideal for devices that are connected and disconnected often.

The incoming USB 3.0 cable is about 4 feet long and both it and the power supply cord plug into one end. There is a green LED power indicator on the top. There are four USB ports along each side with the one for fast charging clearly color-coded red and also labeled with a battery symbol and the word "charging".

The device is well-made of heavy-duty plastic with four little rubbery feet on the bottom. The maximum power output is 7 A (which is plenty for most devices such as mice and cameras) and transfer speeds are quite fast. This is a good way to connect multiple external hard drives to a stationary computer with USB 3.0 speeds. Although the instructions warn that some hard drives have to be connected directly to the computer's USB port, I haven't found this to be a problem with my Seagate drives.

This hub works really well with my USB 3.0 Hard drive dock. I just cloned a drive from esata to a USB 3.0 dock that was plugged into this hub. I did not test the actual speed , but the 80 Gig HDD cloned in about 6 minutes. I have not found any negatives yet, but a big plus is that is A/C powered. This means you will have no trouble running multiple devices off of it.

I bought and installed this a couple of weeks ago. Since then I'm repeatedly getting "blue screen" crashes on startup from unused/sleep state. When I check, my system says the USB hub controller is "not compatible". Since I've been running Win7 (Enterprise) for over a year with no issues until now, I must conclude this is the culprit.

Aug 1, 2013 - Since contacting Anker, I have come to LOVE their customer service. They replaced this, faulty, hub with a 7-Port (double the price) for no extra charge. It works fine. They were quick to help and very courteous. Anker gets 5 stars (although I can't change my review of this hub - which doesn't seem to even be offered anymore).

I was looking for a USB 3.0 hub to centralize all USB accessory connections on my desk, for my somewhat remotely-located computer. Although this hub is a bit expensive, it works well and it has an added feature, which has proven to be very useful. One of the USB ports is a 2A charging port (it has no data connection, only power). This is very convenient because I do not need a separate USB charger on my desk to charge my iPad or other USB devices. I keep this hub hidden behind my monitor with a cable connected to the charging port; so I now have all necessary data connections and a quick charging station at my fingertips.

One note: if you use this hub with Mac OSX Lion 10.8.2 (or greater), the hub requires a firmware update to work properly. This is due to the way Lion handles USB 3.0 power switching. Possibly Anker is now including the newer firmware in these hubs. If not, you can download the firmware and updater software from their website. The only inconvenience with this process is that the firmware update must be run on a Windows computer (not a great solution for those people who need the update because they are using a Mac).
