Awesome USB hub!,
This review is from: Anker® AH401 4-Port USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Hub with 3.3-Foot Cable (Personal Computers)
I am really impressed with the cable! It's very high quality and feels like it's industrial grade plastic and width unlike some other USB cables when they feel like tooth picks. This is one serious hub with a serious cable.
It handled everything I threw at it on several operating systems and performs beautifully without any lag whatsoever.
I am very impressed with this product!

- 3.3ft built-in cable extends reach of USB ports

Overall I think this is a 5 star hub with an amazing design and a surprisingly high strength USB 3 cable that is long enough for any job.
This hub handled everything I threw at it with no problem and that's evident in my video!

this product is junk --- you must work for the company.

I was looking for a review with peripherals and yours seems to be the only one, have you had issues in performance when using the mouse? and keyboard if you've tried both? I'll be using this with a gaming mouse, keyboard and usb 3.0 dongle, with a port to spare, already tried other products that lacked sadly.

Yes it works well with peripherals but you must also watch the power consumption.
If your mouse, keyboard, and usb flash drive exceeds 900mAh, you'll have performance issues.
I don't see that being an issue with a regular mouse and keyboard but gaming keyboards with LEDs and ports can be an issue.
If you need performance, I would suggest looking at a powered USB hub. I believe Anker makes some good well-priced ones too
