Sabrent High Speed 10 Port USB Hub, OK but it has Problems
on September 26, 2014
It has a tendency to turn itself off. Switches control gangs of three USB recepticles. If the lights aren't on, the devices are not working. I've also had the problem where one of the three lights (per gang) was not on but the other two were. Unplugging the USB device and plugging it back in did not fix the problem. Pressing the button (associated with the 3 recepticles in the group) produces nothing. I had to rethink my ideas of USB distribution so that my wife wouldn't call in the middle of the day asking why the mouse and keyboard wouldn't work. I've since rerouted the mouse and keyboard directly to the computer.
I'm a computer geek so this stuff doesn't bother me as much as it might someone else. I am disappointed however. The most common fix to problems with the hub is to disconnect the power supply and plug it back in, something I'd rather not have to do.
