Top critical review
Great little hub, but the lower price may be for a reason...
on July 9, 2017
Thought I ordered this as new for its $49.99 discounted price, but it appeared as Refurbished in my order after the purchase. I didn't really mind; after all, many retail products are assembled using the refurbished parts of returned items, so it's all in the same diceroll. Unfortunately, I don't think they actually refurbished the unit. The top 3 ports behave as expected with devices plugged in, but I've had trouble reading any USB stick through the next 5 ports at all, and some devices don't detect when plugged into them. The final two ports seem to be fine for my Steam controller and my phone. The thing that sucks most is that I can't remove the assembly because I need my computer for work and this hub is integral to my setup, so I can't feasibly return the product to Anker, and it's a refurb unit so I can't swap it for a brand new one through Amazon's return process. I'll probably just order another hub and carefully select a different retailer in the buy options than the one that processed this order.
