I plugged mine into the Surface Pro's only USB port, tested with the newly bought SanDisk USB stick and Logitech keyboard / mouse nano-receiver. It lasted for maybe 5 minutes before I suddenly found that my mouse and keyboard don't work any more. When I look at the hub, I noticed the glaring LED was gone, and Windows reported that USB power surge -- that means some short circuit in the hub. This is ridiculous, and I cannot find any product worse than this one. It burned my computer's only USB port! I've been using USB products since early USB1.0, and this is the first time my USB port get burned by a stupid product. You are warned. I'm returning the product and backing up my computer through painfully slow wireless network now.
I tested it in the car for about hour. It gets a bit warm -- dunno know if that's common.
Inside the package was a note saying that I should contact their tech support if there were problems. I logged into their website, but they don't share a knowledge base of previous issues. To me this is a huge red flag that they consistently are having the same problems.
Don't buy this if you're using a macbook pro. Honestly, I wouldn't buy this for any of my computers.
So, while I don't have a spectrum analyzer handy (may be able to grab one at work and confirm), it appears this device is emitting RF at, our near, the 1525 MHz range, causing interference with nearby GPS operation.
I do have a design improvement recommendation, although I'm not sure how it could be implemented: When rotated to a horizontal position, the device can place pressure on the USB port when inserting a USB plug. To deal with this, I have placed a piece of foam between the device and the surface on the desktop in which there would otherwise be a gap.The other option to avoid pressure on the port is to remove it every time you insert or remove a device, something which I think is self-defeating.

Yes, the name "Sabrent Mini 3-Port USB 3.0 Rotating Hub' doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it certainly does do exactly what it says on the tin.
First, it is very light, with the main body actually turning out (what looks to be) a coated plastic, rather than alloy / aluminium (I say this, as the one I've received has a scratch right down one side). It might not be what I expected, but it's actually advantageous to have something that's very light, when it could end up in a backpack and being carried around.
The 'Source' USB connection (the one that'll connect the hub to a main device or outlet) does allow for click-free rotation through 180 degrees. Very handy, as unlike USB-C, I've found that not all the ports on my devices are orientated in the most convenient way. With the main USB socket offset to one end, this means that I can swing the 3-port hub out of the way, allowing me better access.
The blue (LED) illuminates immediately when plugged into a powered source (nice simple indication that it's working) and was 'auto detected' as a hub device, with no need for drivers (or updates). It's worth noting that the LED's actually quite bright, enough to light up the nearest USB port on the hub.
All connections on the hub checked out, being nice and neat, secure and providing stable data transfer (at USB 3.0) rates to the devices that I connected (obviously, I already knew that the source was USB 3.0).
My only concern is the build quality, and possible longevity, of the rotating connector. I've got this orientated, so that there's some support against the case, but I've fortunate that there's a 'flap' on my machine that allows for this. Given the plastic construction, and the way in which the source socket has to protrude, I'll need to wait and see just how well it stands up to regular use and movement.
So far though, a nice simple, in-expensive, solution, that meets my needs; offering me the functionality / expansion that I need, for both my Win/PC and Apple/iOS devices.
The product arrived within a couple of day, postage free, and the packaging looked very professional.
The device looks very well made and as soon as I plugged it into my Windows 7 - 64 bit laptop drivers were automatically found and in less than 60 seconds it was up and running. The HUB rotates 180 degrees also.
I had attached a 500GB external HD, as wireless transmitter for a mouse and I was also charging my phone from it. Worked a dream.
This is a great product and does everything that I wanted.
The only gripes are minor:
1. It doesn't sit in my laptop usb flushly so there is still a bit of metal from the usb plug viewable, so there is a bit of a wobble when you connect and disconnect usb devices
2. it would have been nice if it was a bit smaller, but what do I know about how these are made.
Losing my faith in these cheap pieces of crap. Not buying a USB hub again.
can use them for the following
Pc - works straight out of the box in any usb2 and usb3 ports
xbox 1 - better to use side usb3 port on the side for nice startup for external hard drives and works with out any problems
PS4 - using the front ports is fine and works straight out of the box
Others - Can use this hub as well to charge mobiles tablets and your controllers while you use you pc or console
Overall I give this 5/5 and recommend them to any one with small amounts of space or needing extra ports
added a few picture to go with this review
I like the fact that these can be angled at 90 or 180 degree angle. As it stands, I now have the hub from the old PC in the back of my new PC alongside, the one that I purchased for the new one. It has allowed me to plug usb receivers for various mice and keyboards, external USB drives and a plethora of other devices that require a USB port.
I will quite happily buy this again should the need arise.
I did plug it into the PC while it was on as everyone does with most usb ports but their should never be sparks when its moved while plugged in.
I didn't even get as far as connecting it to any other appliances.
Only point to note is that this only swivels to three positions so could possible have a problem if the original port is deep in a moulding, for instance as with my Lenovo All in One
The ports all work and it does the job well.
I have only given 4 stars as I would really want one that sits flush to the laptop. If the rotating hinge could somehow be put inside the dongle rather than sitting proud I beleive that it would be more stable and space efficent.
Other than that great job
