Product Description

Size: 3USB+1Ethernet

The Satechi 3-Port Portable USB 3.0 Hub and 10/100/000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Network Adapter adds 3 USB 3.0 ports to a laptop or desktop & allows you to connect your device directly to a network via USB port.

3 USB 3.0 Ports

The addition of 3 USB 3.0 ports avoids the problem of having an Ethernet adapter take up precious USB ports. Connect up to 3 devices using one USB port. Featuring USB 3.0, this hub provides quick & reliable data transfer rates of up to 5.0Gbps for HDDs, digital cameras, flash drives & smartphones, as well as access printers & more. Backwards compatible with USB 2.0, 1.1 & 1.0.

Fast USB 3.0 & Gigabit solution

Computers limited to 10/100Mbps Ethernet will experience faster transfers when plugged into a Gigabit Ethernet network using this Ethernet adapter. This Ethernet Adapter supports 10/100/1000Mbps for high-speed connectivity, important for file sharing, downloads, streaming, web videos & more.

Use this Ethernet adapter to participate on multiple networks, replace damaged Ethernet ports, add a physical network connection to wireless-only systems & replace network cards. This Ethernet adapter is not intended for use in connecting USB devices like a printer to a network.

Compact Design

Powered via USB, the lightweight & compact design makes it easy to carry in a laptop bag, backpack, or suitcase & doesn't take up precious desktop space.

After initial driver installation (CD included), allows for plug and play.

Customer Reviews

Plugged it into my Surface Pro running Windows 8.1 Pro and it worked without installing any drivers.

After a minute everything was running fine and my mouse, keyboard, printer, and external hard drive are all running great off a single USB port.
Dan Hochee
I use this on my Surface Pro 128, it only has one full size USB 3.0 port, this hub is great for my uses.

Update 3-26-2013:
Since I was asked this question I wanted to respond that both the 10-Port USB 3.0 hub and the 4-Port Portable USB 3.0 hub by Satechi use the GL3520 88PIN chipset which is certified by Microsoft Windows 8 Hardware Certification.

This is a nice USB 3.0 port multiplier and it works well in some applications. You really need to understand the limitations of such devices when using it with your computer and external devices. A port multiplier splits the communication rate and power from the USB port to allow it to be shared with the four ports on the hub. In the case of power, a USB 2.0 port can supply 500 milliamps of power and a USB 3.0 port can supply 900 milliamps that will be split 4 ways if you have four devices plugged in.

If your devices are self-powered by their own power supplies you should have no problems. Devices like printers, scanners and some USB Hard disk drives (With external power supplies) are examples of this. In my testing I used a USB powered hard disk drive (HDD) and three USB memory sticks. When I plugged in the port expander all four devices where present in my computer drive list and I could write to each drive one at a time.

In the example I used for testing, all four devices require power from the USB port to operate and as a result issues occurred. Low power can result in memory loss or the improper writing and reading of data. Using one of these devices or two worked but then it is not a fully functional port multiplier if the power requirements exceed the power capabilities of your computer's USB port like when I was trying to use 3 or 4 devices simultaneously.

I needed a USB hub and a Ethernet adapter for my Surface Pro. I searched for a USB3.0 one that provides a Gigabit connection and fast transfer rate with my USB devices. That already reduce the number of available products. If you search for a compact one, that only give you few choices.

The Satechi Hub and Ethernet adapter fulfill all these criteria. And it's plug and play, nothing to install to get the network adapter working (yet a CD and a download link is included for the drivers). I didn't tested the performance limit, but I didn't experienced any network disconnection, and the USB transfer rate between my tablet and my Sandisk Extreme key seemed to be as fast as if the key was directly connected.
I only experienced problem while running a Virtual Machine from my USB key and using my mouse (Logitech Unify USB receiver): the mouse cursor was shaky or sometimes hung for few seconds which is really annoying. I'm not sure it comes from the device or is inherent to the USB protocol. I can still use the touch screen of the tablet.
At this price, I give it 5 stars.

Shipping was as fast as possible (considering the Labor day), packaging was perfectly protecting the device, customer service responded quickly to my inquiries.

I just got a new 2013 Macbook Pro and I love it ... but I wish they hadn't removed the Ethernet port. I tend to go mostly wireless, but sometimes it really helps to have a hard signal.

This is a nice solution. It allows me to plug an ethernet cord into my USB 3.0 ports.

Of course, there are only two of those on my Macbook Pro, so that might be something to worry about - except that this also includes 3 extra USB 3.0 ports. So I can enjoy the benefits of Ethernet, while leaving room to charge a device and plug in a couple of external hard drives while I'm at it.

Caveat: to make this work, you do have to install a driver. It comes on a mini disc that comes with the adapter ... of course another problem with the new Macbook Pros is that they did away with the disc drives. Even my older Macbook Pro wouldn't have played a mini disc. You need something with a tray that slides out so you can fit it on the spindle. I have an external Blu-Ray burner, though, so I used that. If you didn't have that, you could plug the disc into another computer and then copy the driver and transfer it via thumb drive. It would be nice if Satechi made the driver available for download on their website, but as of the time I'm writing this review it isn't there. So the only way to make this work is to have a way to get the mini disc to deliver the driver. (I was given a sample unit by the manufacturer for the purpose of testing and review.)

Update: I checked back on Satechi's website after I had written this review, and now the drivers that make this work are up and available on its product page. There are links for Mac, Linux and Windows versions of the driver.

In the past I have had problems with USB 3.0 hubs attached to my iMac (latest generation). When powered external hard drives were connected, they were sometimes mounted and sometimes not. The connection, once mounted, was unstable.

I have had absolutely no problems with this hub on the iMac. Two powered external hard drives are always available and sustain extended transfers with no dropouts. All additional usb devices I have connected temporarily have worked without a problem.
