Having said that, assuming you don't have these issues, it's a great product. We love that you can turn individual ports on and off, they light up so it's clear if it's on, and it has magnets on the bottom. The place we put it happens to be metal, so it sticks right in place and doesn't move a bit! The magnetic feet were really a bonus because we didn't read that when we bought it. 28 ports is crazy, we have about 17 ports used with room for 11 more! we can charge more things and there's a whole row of ports in the front for easy access when we need to plug in a USB stick or something.
Unfortunately, it's too good to be true and we're going back to our 14 port and 10 port USB hubs.
A bus-powered USB 2.0 device is 5 Volts at 500 Milliamps (0.5 Amps). USB 3.0 is 5V, 900mA.
With 24 USB 2.0 devices (assuming they're bus powered--they don't have their own AC adapters), they'll need 12 Amps! The four USB 3.0 devices need 3.6 Amps. That's 15.6 Amps!
Shoot 15.6 Amps through that hub and stuff will fry!
There's a reason why the good USB 3.0 hubs with 10 ports have power bricks larger than they are: the devices need all that power! The reason the current (Amps) don't end up frying those hubs is because the power bricks are actually 12 Volts instead of 5 Volts, and the power brick "undervolts" to allow more devices.
In other words, Volts * Amps = Watts. A hub with a 12V, 5A charger = 60W. USB 3.0 devices at 5V, 900mA (0.9A) = 4.5W. Ten of them would be 45W.
So given 24 USB 2.0 devices and 4 USB 3.0 devices need 15.6A at 5V, that's 78W! So a 12V charger would have to be 6.5A to properly support this thing...
...but kids, don't try that at home! This piece of crap would probably get fried anyway at 6.5A!!!
UPDATE 12/22/2015: I contacted Manhattan about my experience with the MondoHub and they did respond. Basically, they stated that the MondoHub was not designed to provide enough power to all their ports if used at the same time with HDD's - like I was attempting to do with 17 HDDs. Unfortunately, they did not state how many HDDs the MondoHub would support at the same time. However, they suggested I use smaller powered hubs for my setup. OK, wish I had known that before I made this purchase. When this unit failed, I only had 2 HDDs on the USB 3.0 ports 15 and 16, and the other 2 USB 3.0 ports 1 and 2 were going out to my smaller 7 port powered hubs. Don't really understand the benefit of having 28 ports if you can only really use 4 at a time, or less? BTW, all 17 drives appeared to be OK in Storage Spaces until I actually started transferring about 500GB of files to the drives. Then everything started to shut down on me. Will have to find another use for this hub, but don't know where. Waste of money to be sitting on the shelf back in its box. Hope this review helps someone else from making the same mistake I did.
