5.0 out of 5 stars Tiny USB 3.0 Hub, but amazing performance!, October 31, 2012
By 
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.

Hi Surge,
I do find your review helpful. But when you said "... I was able to get 4 more USB 3.0 ports...", which is not true. Originally, you have 2 USB 3.0 ports. After adding this hub, you have 5 USB 3.0 ports(one on your motherboard was used by the hub). So you have a net gain of 3(5-2), not 4 more USB 3.0 ports.

You don't have the same product as what is on this page. [12V 4A Power Adapter and VIA VL812 Chipset ] Anker® Uspeed USB 3.0 10 Port Hub with Power Adapter and 1M USB 3.0 Cable, Backward Compatible with USB 2.0 - 18 Months Warranty

I have this hub and it's exactly like what is pictured on the purchasing page.

There are four different hubs listed under the same listing: a 4 port, a 10 port white, 10 port black, and a 7 port with charging port. Reviews for any of the 4 all go into the same bucket.

Actually, you're wrong. The reviewer stated he got 4 more, which he did, he didn't say he got 4 more "useable" ports. He started with 2 and ended up with 6, regardless that he had to use one for this device, he still ended up with 4 more than he started with.
