Reviewed in the United States on February 10, 2021
UPDATE 4/3/2021: I received the replacement in the mail, and it seems to work as advertised. Attached is a picture showing sequential read and write speeds of both directly plugged into the USB port and the hub. It's now within margin of error instead of about half the speed it should be. I'm not going to claim quality control issues, because so many people say these are fine (the good reviews being why I bought it) so I probably just got a dud.

[ORIGINAL REVIEW]: I get 480 megabits per second on the dot for data transfer speeds, which just so happens to be exactly what USB 2.0 is rated for. I'm not sure if this is some kind of mistake, but what I bought was definitely a USB 3.0 hub (which should be 6 gigabits per second, not 480 megabits), not a USB 2.0 hub.

I'm using an external hard drive here that should be getting around 130 megabytes per second, or 1040 megabits per second.
