Satechi UH-12P USB 2.0 Hub with Power adds twelve additional USB 2.0 ports to PC or Mac, allowing you to connect USB devices such as digital cameras, external hard drives, flash drives, and printers. The hub is uniquely designed so that the two switches can control first six or second six usb ports with the blue Led indicators. Providing data rates of up to 480Mbps, this 12-port hub is the ideal solution for transferring data between your computer and external USB storage devices. Equipped with a power supply, the Satechi UH-12P USB 2.0 hub guarantees the electric current stability and the effective operation of connected USB devices. It does not require any software or complicated installation process. With the slim, strip-shape design, it saves your precious desktop space. It’s extremely portable and easy to move between systems or take on the road.
For a stable connection, the devices connected to the 12 Port hub must not exceed a combined current of 5 volt 2A. Each USB port on our 12 Port hub will only provide 5 volts 250 Milliamps. External hard-drives should be connected to an external power source.
This hub functions as a USB hub only, to connect USB 2.0 and USB 1.0 devices to your computer, and is not a standalone device charger.
This hub is not recommended for ASIC bitcoin miners.

All works great. I liked it so much I bought a second one for other uses.
Delivery time from Satechi was very prompt.
This did not turn out quite as well as I had hoped. I found that if a total of 2.00 or more amps were pulled by all USB devices combined on the 12 port hub that the hub will shut down. The power supply that is supplied with the hub is rated at 5V 2.4 amps. As I pointed out in my earlier review I changed over to my own 10 amp supply which worked well until I added a 11th USB device that exceeded the 2.00 amps. The specs for the hub make no mention whatsoever of a maximum current rating for the hub but of course the rating of their own power supply (2.4 amps) indicates a maximum current that should be assumed. The purchaser could not know that until their power supply was in hand. I had hoped that the unit did not have current limiting built in but it does. Satechi should revise their specs to indicate that there is a maximum current that can be pulled by the hub. There is no mention of the total current capacity of their power supply or the hub on Amazon or on the Satechi web site.
Long and the short of it is don't exceed 2.00 amps with all USB devices combined on a hub or it will shut down. There is nothing wrong with the hub, they work fine, are durable and very space efficient, it just has a current limitation the user should be aware of.
I used my second 12 port hub, made a Y adapter for the 10 amp supply to power both hubs, split the USB device load, 5 devices on one hub and 6 on the other hub to reduce the current being pulled for each hub. They work fine now after very extensive testing.
Turns out, I can't even run all 3 of my drives at the same time. In fact running 2 at a time is iffy.
I thought for a while that the power supply might in fact be broken, since it did not seem to run any more disks with the power supply plugged in than being powered from the computer's USB port, but in fact the lights light up and the plugged in devices do see power even when it is not plugged into the computer, so the power supply must be working.
I'm keeping it to run the disks one at a time and be able to access other low powered things, but it is a shame that it is so very low powered...
I would avoid Satechi products on Amazon like the plague. In my opinion, they are manipulating the review system to get rid of anything short of excellent reviews by offering refunds that let you keep the product if you remove your 'negative' review. Previously this was a 3 star review and I got the following email:
We are very sorry for the inconvenience you've experienced with our 12 Port USB Hub. For safety reasons each port has a 5Volt 250mA output and the total amount of power going to the hub may not surpass 2 Amps (to ensure your computer's usb doesn't burn up.) You are most likely exceeding this limit with your external hard drives. Is it possible to connect any of them to an external power source? Also we would like to offer you a refund and you may keep the hub. All we ask in return is the removal of your review. Once (or if) it is removed we will issue your full refund.
Satechi Technical Support
If you still want a Satechi product, I would give a lot of extra weight to any "negative" review that does survive this process, given that I suspect many reviews would disappear with this offer...
Also plugged into the motherboard's USB output is a canon multifunction scanner/photo printer.
Prior to the Statechi, I had no problems printing.
Immediately, after use, not printing to the Canon would work. As a verification, I turned off the power on the Satechi (leaving it plugged into the USB). Printing returned to normal. Turned the power back on the Satechi and the printer no longer worked. Without going into a lot of troubleshooting, it would appear that the Satechi is causing a power dip on the USB on the motherboard, or the USB out of the Satechi is so flakey that the USB bus is getting too many conflicts (or something similar).
I cannot recommend it with the current experience. At the price, it is not worth too much troubleshooting as my time is worth at least minimum wage and this could add up.
The look and concept of turning half on at a time with 1 always on is nice, but execution seems flawed.
Given that the 4 harddrives are externally powered and worked with the unpowered hub prior, this is disappointing.
