Tiny USB 3.0 Hub, but amazing performance!
, October 31, 2012
This review is from: Anker® Uspeed USB 3.0 4-Port Hub with Power Adapter, Compatible with Windows XP / Vista / 7 / 8 Mac OS - Ultra Slim 0.5inch Profile (Personal Computers)
A quick summary of my PC:
Win 7 (64-bit), Intel Core i5 2500k, 8Gb DDR3, Asus P8Z68-V LX Motherboard
First off, I did not realize how small this hub would be until I saw it first hand. This hub is tiny! It's the size of a credit card and very thin (0.5 inch). I didn't have high hopes for this hub because of it's small size, but I was ready to be proven wrong. My motherboard only has 2 USB 3.0 ports, so I was looking to expand. With this hub, I was able to get 4 more USB 3.0 ports without taking a lot of space on my desk.
Installation was a breeze, no drivers needed since the hub is truly plug-and-play.
I stress tested the hub with 2x USB 3.0 hard drives and 2x USB 2.0 flash drives. I ran a CrystalDiskMark benchmark on all the devices simultaneously to see if the hub would slow down the devices when it was fully loaded. If you look at the picture I uploaded, you will see that the hub was able to keep up with all 4 devices and managed to not slow them down one bit.
Overall, I am really impressed with this hub for it's performance, size, and price. I would easily recommend it to anyone looking for USB 3.0 Hub.
