2.4 GHz wireless devices, MIDI devices and some USB 3.0 devices may not be supported. Try using the host port or a USB 2.0 connection.
For a stable connection, avoid connecting high power-consumption devices, such as external hard drives. The hub will sync but not charge tablets and other devices that require a higher power input.

EDIT: They did contact me immediately and really looked into the problem. They requested the bad hub for troubleshooting and quality control. They sent me a new one. I've had the new one for a few months and no problems. The customer service at Anker was very helpful.
The model of hub that comes with a power adapter for 2x the cost of the non-power adapter-included model and is NOT the same as the power-included model. The non-power adapter models LACKS the additional power hole so that you can power the hub (to run devices like USB hard drives, scanners, etc.). Again, no pictures show this omission, nor did I see it in writing anywhere.
It is a shame because this is a great hub and the company seems to make quality items, they just fail to mention that the item comes sans an ability to add power; note that the ability to power your hub is not needed for many USB devices. Don't get me wrong, the hub works fine without the power adapter, it is not needed on 90% of the USB items I use. But some items need power, and one of their models does not have the option to add supplemental power if needed.
It is also a shame because Anker also did another AMAZING thing on the powered model. Rather than using a barrel connector to power their hub (which will get lost at some point by anyone), Anker went with a MICRO-USB connector to add supplemental power to their hub. What this means is that if you lost the power cable, any Samsung/Android cell phone charger you have will work to power this hub. That is a STELLAR idea, and I wish more manufacturers would get away from semi-proprietary power connections and stick with industry-standard USB cables for powering low-voltage devices, such as this USB hub.
Product does not function properly. If the port is not perfectly plugged in straight it will disconnect! With a slight touch or bump it will disconnect instantly! I have no other issues with my laptop's usb ports when using them with any other device. This hub is going in the trash as it cannot be returned :(
UPDATE: I cannot begin to state how far Anker went to ensure I had a working product! They contacted me right away after I posted this review asking if they could send me a new port. I agreed and in my next email told them I was no longer at that address; I travel for business. They had already mailed out the product before seeing my email and re-sent another port to the current address. Their amazing customer service NEVER wavered even though my travels took me elseware which delayed a re-review of their product. The new port works flawlessly and doesn't disrupt the power when I have 4 - 3.0 harddrives all plugged in an operating! The USB ports are a snug fit preventing your harddrives from unintentional disconnections if bumped. I will continue to purchase Anker products knowing that if something goes wrong, there is an amazing company standing behind the products that will make it go right!!
Control Panel --> Device Manager --> Universal Serial Bus Controllers --> Select the port or hub --> select the Power Tab.
You may have to select a few before you find the one you are interested in. When I selected the first "Generic Port" it listed the items plugged into the hub: the wireless mouse receiver at 100 mA and the same for the keyboard receiver. I have a video card plugged into another port by itself, it shows 500 mA. Remember that though the hub will support 900 mA...if your computer has USB 2.0 ports, ONLY plug in a max of 500 mA in devices into the hub. (I have windows 7, so if your OS is different, the method of examining the ports may be different.)
In my application, I have the laptop on a shelf and the wireless mouse was not working well; with the receiver plugged into the hub and the hub "dangling on its 6" cord, the receiver is now 10" closer to the mouse and it works fine.
Cons; product description did not indicate total mA supported by this device; also a caution about using it only for 500 mA max (USB 2.0) or 900 mA max (USB 3.0) would have been very appropriate in the buying description.
Also the unit is made of particularly flimsy plastic, but I suppose that's what I get for only 10 bucks.
