Since I was asked this question I wanted to respond that both the 10-Port USB 3.0 hub and the 4-Port Portable USB 3.0 hub by Satechi use the GL3520 88PIN chipset which is certified by Microsoft Windows 8 Hardware Certification.
This is a nice USB 3.0 port multiplier and it works well in some applications. You really need to understand the limitations of such devices when using it with your computer and external devices. A port multiplier splits the communication rate and power from the USB port to allow it to be shared with the four ports on the hub. In the case of power, a USB 2.0 port can supply 500 milliamps of power and a USB 3.0 port can supply 900 milliamps that will be split 4 ways if you have four devices plugged in.
If your devices are self-powered by their own power supplies you should have no problems. Devices like printers, scanners and some USB Hard disk drives (With external power supplies) are examples of this. In my testing I used a USB powered hard disk drive (HDD) and three USB memory sticks. When I plugged in the port expander all four devices where present in my computer drive list and I could write to each drive one at a time.
In the example I used for testing, all four devices require power from the USB port to operate and as a result issues occurred. Low power can result in memory loss or the improper writing and reading of data. Using one of these devices or two worked but then it is not a fully functional port multiplier if the power requirements exceed the power capabilities of your computer's USB port like when I was trying to use 3 or 4 devices simultaneously.Read more ›
This is a nice solution. It allows me to plug an ethernet cord into my USB 3.0 ports.
Of course, there are only two of those on my Macbook Pro, so that might be something to worry about - except that this also includes 3 extra USB 3.0 ports. So I can enjoy the benefits of Ethernet, while leaving room to charge a device and plug in a couple of external hard drives while I'm at it.
Caveat: to make this work, you do have to install a driver. It comes on a mini disc that comes with the adapter ... of course another problem with the new Macbook Pros is that they did away with the disc drives. Even my older Macbook Pro wouldn't have played a mini disc. You need something with a tray that slides out so you can fit it on the spindle. I have an external Blu-Ray burner, though, so I used that. If you didn't have that, you could plug the disc into another computer and then copy the driver and transfer it via thumb drive. It would be nice if Satechi made the driver available for download on their website, but as of the time I'm writing this review it isn't there. So the only way to make this work is to have a way to get the mini disc to deliver the driver. (I was given a sample unit by the manufacturer for the purpose of testing and review.)
Update: I checked back on Satechi's website after I had written this review, and now the drivers that make this work are up and available on its product page. There are links for Mac, Linux and Windows versions of the driver.
The Satechi Hub and Ethernet adapter fulfill all these criteria. And it's plug and play, nothing to install to get the network adapter working (yet a CD and a download link is included for the drivers). I didn't tested the performance limit, but I didn't experienced any network disconnection, and the USB transfer rate between my tablet and my Sandisk Extreme key seemed to be as fast as if the key was directly connected.
I only experienced problem while running a Virtual Machine from my USB key and using my mouse (Logitech Unify USB receiver): the mouse cursor was shaky or sometimes hung for few seconds which is really annoying. I'm not sure it comes from the device or is inherent to the USB protocol. I can still use the touch screen of the tablet.
At this price, I give it 5 stars.
Shipping was as fast as possible (considering the Labor day), packaging was perfectly protecting the device, customer service responded quickly to my inquiries.
I use this with a macbook pro.
