Product Description

The MANHATTAN MondoHub features a high-capacity 4 amp power adapter with enough ports to manage a growing collection of USB-enabled devices. Unlike some other large capacity USB Hubs available on the market, the MondoHub features 4 SuperSpeed USB ports and can recharge devices or transfer data at lightning fast speeds. The compact and durable case features the power and hub-to-PC ports on the side panel to help better organize connections and minimize cable clutter. This high-quality USB Hub also features automatic overcurrent protection for each port and hot-swapping Plug and Play connection. With a power switch for each port, the MondoHub gives users complete control over which devices are using power or valuable system resources.

Customer Reviews

The power supply was totally inadequate, not only for a handful of iPads but even for less demanding devices.
Harry
The only way to get the computer to recognize it again, is to unplug the hub from both the computer and the power so the hub is completely turned off.
Kristopher Ames
I also love how there is a LOT of space between all the ports, so those extra-thick or wide devices won't keep you from using the adjacent ports.

This is a great hub and I must admitt I have used up 1/2 of the usb sockets and all of the usb3 sockets. The hub hardware has one little flaw and that is that it does not always report the usb3 sockets as such so somtimes the device thinks its hooked up to a usb port and wants a usb3 port. I have checked the speed on all the usb3 ports though and they all have usb3 speeds. so I can live with the occasional nag from Win7...On another note just be aware that if you are tempted to hook up a lot of bus powered devices to this unit it only provides 4 amps. That will power 2 or 3 usb3 devices--maybe 4 in a pinch, but it won't have any power left over for the usb devices powered on the bus. they really need to provide a more powerfull vampire adapter like a 6-8 amp device so it can manage more than just the usb3 minimum power out. On the whole I am happy with the device and my comments are directed more at the industry than this device because it follows industry practices.....

I admit I've had this hub for only a few hours, but I'll be back to update / correct if anything "funny" turns up.

It "just works" right out of the box, which is a LOT more than I can say for some (ahem) other vendors' products. The combination of on-board USB 3.0 and 2.0 is brilliant.

This is actually called the MondoHub, made by Manhattan Products (per the product insert in the box).

My system:

***

- MacBook Air (2012 model) w/max memory, two USB 3.0 ports and one Thunderbolt port

- 10 USB 2.0 devices connected to this hub: four kinds of printers, USB audio, external keyboard with mouse plugged into the keyboard, DVD-RW drive, Epson scanner, 1 Jawbone bluetooth headset in its charging connector, and an occasionally connected iPhone

- 3 USB 3.0 devices (2 external hard drives, 1 USB 128gb thumb drive)

***

I have tested all of these devices attached together to the MondoHub and they are all working perfectly. In particular, the external drives (2 TB each) are doing the critical backups (both Time Machine and other) on the system, and are "talking" to one another and the laptop very reliably.

(You can count, so you can tell I have a lot of USB ports still available.)

Is it enough to have four USB 3.0 ports? In my case, absolutely. Think about it: what do you need the higher speeds of USB 3.0 for? For data drives, of course. You don't need it for printers, keyboards, audio, and other such basic devices. So why pay for all-3.0 when you don't need it?

Plus, by far the vast majority of device types are still USB 2.0 anyway: it's everywhere, universally supported, and very stable. For many years the odds are that most brand-new devices you buy will still be USB 2.0.

Don't buy it. Very disappointing. My 3.0 Exterior HD keeps restarting and slows my computer down. It took lots of research to find their phone number and they told me that I need to set USB power setting to "disable" to get more power. That didn't work. It really hurt me because I thought all my problems were because of my new lap top or Window 7/Office 2007 and spent many sleepless nights. Finally, Manhattan's parent company admitted that I should replace it. I returned it and bought Plugable 3.0 Hub from Amazon and everything works great. I think Manhattan with all these ports are eating up too much power and its AC adapter is inadequate. Looks attractive but I don't recommend to buy it.

This is my second device. The first one stopped working in less than a month, I returned it under warranty and received a new one. Now this one is already losing ports. I would not recommend this.

I was tired of using multiple hubs, and this solves it elegantly. I also love how there is a LOT of space between all the ports, so those extra-thick or wide devices won't keep you from using the adjacent ports. The on/off buttons aren't useful to me, but might be for people who have devices they want to disable when not being used. The magnets on the bottom are good enough to stick this to a computer case or metal furniture, but not strong enough to cause any harm to hard drives. Glad I bought it.

I have this plugged in and working:
2 x External 3Tb HDD (via USB 3). These use their external power source
1 x External 1Tb HDD (via USB 3).
1 x MIDI keyboard
1 x iPad 3
1 x iPhone 5
1 x External Apple Keyboard
3 x USB drives
1 x Mouse
2 x iLok

This DOES NOT work with:
* My external USB audio interface (M-Audio Fast Track C600)
* External Apple DVD Drive

These two need to be hooked up directly to my macbook pro (retina) to work.

Occasionally the external HDDs stop being recognized and I have to reboot the computer. Hooking them up directly solves the problem though. But this only happens every other week so it's not a major annoyance. Other than that this is a workhorse.

Have replaced unit with a different brand after a total failure. Ports began dropping off within a month of installing.

This looked like such a great deal, especially given the huge number of ports and the low price. I guess you get what you pay for, although, in this case, you may be getting less.

We had hoped to use this to sync and, perhaps, charge a variety of mobile devices: iPads, iPhones, iPods, smart phones. It was not suitable on many levels. The power supply was totally inadequate, not only for a handful of iPads but even for less demanding devices. Syncing was unstable at best and totally failed at worst. Our tech support guys were worried that it might not be safe as they could not see how it got its CE rating (temperature concerns) and the USB ports did not have any overload protection. We had not seen anything that warned about its limitations.

Anyway, we were told NOT to use it unless we were willing to put our equipment at risk.

This hub may be OK for devices that do not have any power needs, such as a bunch of USB jump drives. But, for us, it is just not going to work.
