USB 2.0 or 3.0?
AmazonBasics USB hubs and cables have different version numbers (2.0 and 3.0) that indicates their transfer speed. The higher the version number, the faster they can work. However, to get the full power, the host and the device must have the same version. If not, the lowest USB version in the chain will control the speed. For example, if your computer has a 2.0 USB port, your cable is 3.0, and your phone is 3.0, you will achieve 2.0 speed. If all three (computer, cable, and phone) all have 3.0 then you will have 3.0 speed.
Desktop or notebook computer with USB port, and one of the following operating systems (no driver needed): Windows 2000/Win XP/Vista/Windows 7 & Mac 10.1 up. Connect digital cameras, iPods and iPhones, card readers, USB speakers, and more.

Basically, this hub works great, but be aware that it has subpar components that might make your life more difficult. In my case, it meant a few hours of troubleshooting why my mouse stopped working, then trying to figure out why my keyboard kept disconnecting. The final straw was when my wifi stopped working (can't get anything done without a connection!).
My two complaints:
The blue light is blindingly bright. It's bright enough to clearly see my entire bedroom at night. I covered it with tape, but that looks nasty.
They used a nonstandard port for the connection between the pc and the hub. I get it, you don't want users to be confused about which port to use, but please, for the love of god just mark that port with red paint and use a standard usb cable... I don't want to have to order a cord online if this one ever breaks.
Note to device manufacturers everywhere:
Some people will use your product in a room that should, at times, be dark. Either for shows/movies or at night in a bedroom. If you *must* have a status light (and really, most times you shouldn't) then it should be as dim as possible to still be functional, it should be red, and it should have an off switch. I'm not a 14 year old, blue lights do not make me think your product is cool.
I purchased it because i have a Surface Pro with only one USB port. I previously had two backup drives, a mouse receiver, and whatever random thing i needed to attach, on a cheap un-powered portable hub. It worked fine but i just didn't think it was a good idea.
This hub would randomly disconnect and/or reconnect one drive or another, which is dangerous to my data. (As well as annoying since i have autorun set to open windows on newly plugged in drives). It wouldn't recognize my phone at all. I went back to my chintzy portable hub and everything is working fine again. Unfortunately i still don't think it's a good idea.
I read some of the other more disappointed reviews and some folks mentioned bent contacts and loose power connections. Maybe i was experiencing one or the other or both, i don't know, i didn't investigate. The bottom line is that i purchased this for peace of mind, to improve an undesirable situation, and ultimately it did the opposite.
So i would just suggest to pay attention to the other disgruntled reviewers because it's likely their complaints are legit.
