The drive showed up ok the first time but after a reboot it would not show up, I had to unplug it and plug it in for Windows to see it. Half of the time I'd plug the drive in it would use USB 2 and not 3.0. So I got another 4 port usb 3 only hub and it's works great. I do have the latest MB bios and the latest USB 3 drivers.
Would I buy this again? NO
Would I recommend this? NO
I've experienced the same issue as others. Worked first time out of box, but killed all access to my dvd drive. Rebooted (per instructions). After that, device was dead. The lights on the device, which were on until I rebooted, never came back on. Even after powering off and back on, device was dead thereafter. Fortunately, my dvd drive was fine after the reboot.
The manufacturer's support forum has had this issue on it since almost immediately after the device came out. They've done nothing about the problem but continue to sell the device. Unusually poor showing for SIIG, which usually puts out good products.
Wait to buy until SIIG has figured out the problem and *FIXED* it.
This product is advertised as a SEVEN port Superspeed (USB 3.0) Hub. It is NOT. It really is a three port USB 3.0 Hub that has an added four ports of USB 2.0 functionality. Incidentally, on the unit I received, *NONE* of the USB 2.0 port worked and *NONE* (including the three working 3.0 ports) were able to accommodate ANY USB 2.0 devices. Seven ports? No way!
Incidentally, the USB 3.0 specification calls for backward compatibility with earlier devices and cables and I cannot tell if this is a design shortcoming with all units or just a faulty device that I received.
I am not accustomed having to read the fine print on Amazon, in order to get an understanding of what I am buying. In the fine print, it does indeed say this device is a 4 port USB 2.0 with 3 ports of USB 3.0, but the product HEADING says "SuperSpeed USB 3.0 7-Port Hub by SIIG". Sorry, Joe, it just ain't so. The old warning "Caveat Emptor" certainly applies here.
Oh, and thanks to Amazon's great return policy, my unit is heading back!
Overall so far, I Like its slim size design and I also like its suede like finish.
Installation is very easy. Just connect it to any USB 3.0 or 2.0 port and it works. Also no driver is needed. Just connect it into any USB port and it is detected right away.
I would recommend this to my friend.
Problem 1: if I boot with the SIIG hub attached, my notebook's fingerprint reader is blocked. Doesn't even show up in the hardware list. Unplug the hub & power cycle the notebook, and all works well. It's a poor-man's workaround.
Problem 2: Now it's dead. This morning, no lights. Moved it to three different power outlets...nothing. It's not quite 12 months, and SIIG claims it has a 5-year warranty.
Unfortunately, it's not easy way to make a warranty claim. There is only an online form requiring you to look up everything and type it in manually. They can't take the microsecond to print "P/N" and "S/N" on the equipment, and leave no clues on the form to decipher the information. I'd call it poor customer service, but I'd also blame manufacturing. What manufacturer would print multiple strings of numbers and letters, but leave no indication of their use?
If yours dies too, the part number is JU-H70112-S1. The number in the middle is the serial number.
I've babied this. It's always plugged into an UPS with power conditioning. The line voltage from the building is always between 119-121VAC. A power supply should last more than a year.
Good news...you'll get an automated acknowledgment of your RMA request within minutes. Let's see how long it takes to actually get a replacement.

I think by now they have newer version but this one worked ok but I never really used it for the 3.0 part of it... but all ports to work on 2.0...Published on February 4, 2013 by R. H. R
This has been a satisfactory purchase, a good 3.0 hub with 2.0 ports as well. It is reliable and the only negative consideration is that it runs a little bit hot.Published on May 30, 2012 by tarpon777
I actually have replaced my motherboard - twice now, and finally realized it is because this hub is so terrible....Published on January 9, 2012 by OZZY
So far, this hub works as advertised. Currently, I have the hub plugged into a USB 3.0 port on my desktop, and USB 2.0 devices plugged into the hub, but it works as advertised.Published on October 10, 2011 by Sean Dunn

It is amazing how quickly you can use USB ports. I have a laptop (used as main computer) that has both USB 3 and USB 2 ports. Read morePublished on July 20, 2011 by George Mollo Jr.
This was not a functional piece of equipment. It was in fact a piece of junk, or quickly became so as it did not work after the first boot. Read morePublished on July 19, 2011 by Maude Lebowski
