Sabrent 4 Port USB,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sabrent 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub with Individual Power Switches and LEDs (HB-UMLS) (Personal Computers)I'm looking for a USB port with an individual switch so I bought this
one, for the price its a best buy.
so this is my review of this product.
Pros and Cons.
+Individual switch and matching individual blue light is a plus
+Push ON/OFF button for easy operation
+Not bulky design, plastic enclosure seems ok
-USB wire is short for this model but some have long cable
Im an electronic enthusiast and I know what are some flaws
to this device.
1. This is a push button switch and made of cheap switches
so expect the more you used the switch someday it will fail
2. These have individual LEd lights so if you connect this to a laptop
and you connect several devices to these USB ports on some
cases your device may not work and consumes energy from your
3. This device dont have a separate power and it only gets power
from your laptop/desktop, you may encounter devices attached to
this USB port that will fail or not detected, that is due to no enough
power to the device.
(Try to disconnect this USB port and plug in your device directly)
overall recommends this USB port with some things to consider

Thanks for the review. I want to ask as long as you're electronic enthusiast. I do have USB hub 2.0 plugged on a USB 3.0 laptop port, and I face the problem of power limitation whenever I add more than two devices to that hub (added device not working or other plugged gets disconnected). So, Does the power differ if it was a 3.0 USB hub? What shall I do? Thanks in advance.
