I have used this hub for a couple months now. I have a laptop and a monitor hooked up via HDMI to the laptop. I like to play video games and stream them on occasion so I have a variety of USB devices that I need connected like a mouse, Microphone, Ring light, Controller, stream deck and even my mouse pad plugs in to use RGB features. So this usb hub was a great purchase for me as I had quickly ran out of USB slots. Unfortunately at the slightest movement in the port the Hub can and will disconnect and reconnect for me, sometimes to the point of freezing all the applications I have open and causing me to close everything and reopen. This is frustrating as a streamer as I need to end my stream and then Re-launch the stream causing me to lose some viewers. Still looking for a usb hub that is reliable enough to not disconnect and reconnect. (I plug in my mouse, Chroma Mouspad, Ring light, and el gato stream deck into the hub) So all in all this usb hub is just okay. You really do get what you pay for at $8.
