My usb hub that I have had for quite some time is finally nearing it's end. So I set out and started doing my research, and happened upon this product. Touted by several websites and reviewers to be one of, if not 'the' best usb hubs you could get.
Excitedly I purchased one, and paid for overnight shipping. It arrived this morning, and I could not have been more happy to finally be rid of my dying, high pitched whining, randomly working usb hub.
Got it all hooked up and everything seemed fine, so I started transferring my devices from the old hub, to the new one, one at a time.
Corsair K70 Keyboard - Device Not recognized
Razer Ouroboros Mouse - Device Not recognized (Not in wireless or direct mode)
WD Passport - Device Not recognized
Microsoft Mouse - Device Not recognized (regular budget mouse that comes with keyboard combo)
Standard Dell Keyboard - Device Not recognized
SanDisk Cruzer 16GB - Device Not recognized
Swapped usb ports on my motherboard just to check, same scenario. Swapped the hub to the USB's on the front panel, same scenario.
So I spend $70 on a visually pleasing piece of plastic with a little blue light. Already requested my return/refund, will continue searching for a USB hub that is reliable.
