4.0 out of 5 stars Works well and does what it needs to do, November 18, 2011

This review is from: Vantec 4 Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Hub (Black) (Personal Computers)
The USB 3.0 ports are in the back of my computer, so it's a pain to plug my flash drive in and out of my computer. I shopped around a bit, and settled on this one. The ports are a little funky; sometimes I have to play around with a port to get it to recognize my flash drive. I can't say how fast it is because I don't have any benchmarking software, but my computer does recognize it as 3.0 because it doesn't give me the "will perform faster in a 3.0 port" message that I get when I plug the flash drive into the regular USB ports. I have noticed it copies files much faster than when using 2.0 ports. One strange thing I noticed: my flash drive gets EXTREMELY hot when I plug it in. I also have a WD passport that is 3.0 that I plug into this as well, and it stays at regular temperature. But for some reason the flash drive is almost too hot to unplug right away, even when it hasn't been in constant use. The USB cable that goes from this to the computer is a little short, but not a deal breaker for me. It's a great value for the price and does what it's supposed to do. I took off one star for the quirkiness with the ports (I initially thought one port just didn't work). It's also backwards compatible, in case the product description didn't mention it.
