I am editing my review to deal with the latest version of this product. My earlier review, below, was for a previous version. I also received a review sample in return for an unbiased review.
This is a USB 3.0 port multiplier, or "hub." It is passive design, meaning it isn't externally powered and so shares available power, which comes from your PC/laptop, among the four ports. USB 3.0 provides a total of about 0.75 Amps. This makes the hub best used with passive or low power devices. It's fine for a small webcam, separately powered USB audio, separately powered hard drives, USB sticks, etc. It's not really for things like DVD burners that rely on USB power. This is entirely typical for such hubs.
Like its predecessor, it's lightweight, sleek, and relatively small, but not so small that the ports are crowded together. There's no problem with trying to get USB cables to fit. Like the earlier version, all the ports are on the front of the hub. This is a major convenience and avoids having wires go every which-way. Unlike the earlier version, the ports are angled down slightly rather than up slightly. This make the unit a little smaller but it was definitely more convenient to have the ports angled up.
The other difference is in the connecting cable supplied with the unit. The big improvement is that the supplied cable is long enough and really solid and substantial.
But all in all, despite a couple of design changes, there is no reason to deviate from my 5-star rating. There is a lot of value and convenience in this hub. I prefer it for use in a fixed position, with a desktop PC, but it's very portable and can go in your laptop case with ease.Read more ›

I purchased this to supplement the 2 USB ports on my macbook pro. I always want to have my iPhone cable, iPod shuffle cable, external drive, and occasionally a flash drive attached to my computer. Before a hub, this was not possible.
As far as design goes, it's identical to apple accessories like the keyboard and trackpad with it's brushed aluminum design. I love that it DOES NOT have a LED indicating that it is on. These lights drive me crazy because in the dark, I find them to be too bright.
The bottom is covered with a nice rubber which prevents it from slipping around. Overall this is a great product that i would definitely recommend
It does make it a lot easier to plug all my desktop peripherals into my laptop in one maneuver, which is the main reason I got it, so that's a success. Also seems to be good quality and closely matches the whole apple aesthetic.
But the major advantage (including of course the affordable price) is the ease of installation (truly a plug and play system, no special software required) that adds 4 additional USB 2.0 ports to your computer. You don’t appreciate this convenience until rearranging your desk (or wherever you decide to place this hub) and find that the additional USB ports allowing you to connect USB devices such as digital cameras, phones, external hard drives, flash drives, and printers conveniently close to your computer without adding to the paraphernalia of your work space: it is very compact.
The requirements for this little hub are Mac OS 9.1 & higher, Windows 98SE /ME /2000 /XP /Vista /7/8, and Linux 2.4 or above. It is safe, portable (small enough to lips into your briefcase to use at the office), and is protected by a shielded cable. It is definitely up to Sabrent standards – which happen to be very high! Highly Recommended. Grady Harp, November 13

1) Review for 4 port aluminum USB hub.
This is labelled a product for Apple devices because of it's aluminum design and white cable but because USBs are universal and they can work just as well for PCs.
Pros: Looks very nice. Small and doesn't take up much space. Decent price.
Tested all 4 ports and have no problems. The short cord means it's convenient to carry around, you don't have a long cord that you need to wrap around. Aluminum finish matches silver Apple devices and looks cool.
Overall, a nice 2.0 USB port. Works well, looks good!
2) Review for 4 Port Portable USB 3.0 Hub with Power Switch
This is a 4 port 3.0 USB that is backwards compatible back to USB 1.
Pros: Inexpensive, has on/off switch and LED light so you know it's powered. This hub boasts a 5Gbps with 3.0 protocol so it's fast. It's solid and sturdy.
Cons: None that I can see at the moment. I tested all 4 ports and they work as tested. No problems with transfers.
Summary: Works well, good price!

This worked great with my iMac mid 2011. I have two printers hard wired to it, and they work great. I used to have to put the usb cables in and out depending on what I was using. Read morePublished 3 days ago by kbrn
