This review is from: iDsonix® USB 3.0 10 Port Hub + 5V 2.1A Smart Charging Port + 3 On/Off Switch with 12V 4A Power Adapter Build-in Surge Protector [VIA VL812 Chipset] (Electronics)
With so many devices and luckily everybody standardizing on USB 2, and now ver 3, there is always a shortage of USB ports on laptops. I have so many USB 3 2TB harddisks that I have to use a Hub on a daily basis. This is a very nice form factor with a solid rubber grip on the bottom. Will not slide on tables. This is the first time I am seeing one USB hub with 10 ports. Awesome! The 3 On/Off switches make it convenient to control only you want. I used this with
- Samsung Galaxy S4 (for copying files)
- WD 2T Hard disks (portable)
- USB -SD card readers
- Keyboard and Mouse
- Game controller (Logitech)
- Seagate 1 TB Portable drives
Highly recommended for its compactness for having 10 ports. I was provided this product in exchange of a fair and honest review.

Great review rpv. Had a question. With my existing USB3.0 hub (4 port, 5V 4A), I can only add (2) 2TB portable drives + 1TB portable drive max: if I add a fourth drive, the drives all begin to blink.
How many total drives can you run off this iDsonix at one time without overcoming the max power available? Thanks.

I have tried 4 with no issues, but couple of drives not portable, they were running off power too.

In no sense guilty says:
I suspect so long as they are not powered from the bus you would be OK. It's those little 2.5" bus powered ones that cause trouble.
