Excellent performance and quality,
This review is from: Mpow® 4 Port Portable USB 3.0 Hub Bus-Powered [VIA VL812 Chipset] - Black (Electronics)
When this review sample arrived I was immediately pleased with the size, which is a compact 4x1 inches and 7/8 of an inch tall. The cable and USB connector add a little more than a foot to the dimensions and allow you with some placement flexibility. This is a perfect hub for my older Acer Aspire One netbook. In fact, that old Win XP device immediately recognized this hub when I plugged it in. One reason is this not only works with USB 3.0 interfaces, but is backward compatible to earlier versions of the USB spec, including 1.0.
In addition to this hub working on my old netbook, it also works at full USB 3.0 speed on my Galaxy Note 3 phone using an OTG interface. That is a big plus for me.
While the tests that I put this bub through showed it to meet claimed specs, it is also well made. There is nothing cheap or shoddy about the construction. The outer insulator on the cable is thick and beefy, and the cable gauge is somewhere in the 28 AWG range if my eyeballing is correct. I also love the the small details like strain relief, precision made connectors and other areas that cheaper brands do. This is definitely a quality hub that works per claimed specs.
