An amazing hub that adds 7 USB 3.0 ports to your computer!,
This review is from: HooToo? HT-UH011 USB 3.0 HUB 7-Port (12V/3A AC Power Adapter, Latest VIA VL812 Chipset Adopted, 3.3 feet USB 3.0 Cable,), Backward Compatible with USB 2.0 and Supporting Windows / Mac / Linux OS (Electronics)
This is an amazing package for its size. It adds seven USB 3.0 ports to your computer that are downward compatible to USB 2.0 and 1.1. In my attached video I tested 3 different USB thumb drives and a SATA I USB powered Hard Disk Drive and the hub performed very well in speed tests. I also posted in the video some graphic data analysis of the data transfer speeds.
The port comes with:
* A USB 3.0 cable to connect it to your computer. If you want USB 3.0 data transfer speed then you have to use a USB 3.0 port on your computer. The cable is 39 inches long.
* An AC wall power supply that will power the hub and furnish power to the USB 3.0 ports. The power adapter can use 100 to 240 VAC at 50/60 Hertz so it is compatible for overseas use as long as you take your AC wall plug adapters. The output is 12 VDC at 3 Amps and that along with the power out of your computer's USB3.0 port provides the power for the operation of this powerful accessory. Each USB 3.0 port needs to be able to supply 900 mADC. The cable length for the power adapter is 4 feet,
* An instruction manual
In my video I plugged in a high speed, medium speed and slower speed USB thumb drive as well as a USB powered SATA I Hard Disk Drive. I did some speed testing and the speed results were very good. Just remember that you have to share one computer USB3.0 port with the seven ports on the hub so if multiple ports are reading or writing at that same time then the speeds are not capable of reaching 5 Gbps. The graphs are in the video but here are the fastest speeds that I saw in my testing.
Fast speed USB thumb drive:
* Max write speed at 48,454 MB/s
* Max read speed at 175,831 MB/s
Medium speed USB thumb drive:
* Max write speed at 35,554 MB/s
* Max read speed at 93,368 MB/s
Slower speed USB thumb drive:
* Max write speed at 30,434 MB/s
* Max read speed at 89,033 MB/s
USB powered SATA I Hard Disk Drive:
* Max write speed at 31,880 MB/s
* Max read speed at 32,109 MB/s
The seven UBS 3.0 ports allow you to add any type of accessory that needs a USB port. This means that you can add in a printer, scanner, external hard drive or whatever accessory you may need. The hub is compatible with many operating systems and I tested it on Vista 64 Bit and Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit operating systems. No drivers are required to install this device.
I would also like to state that when I plugged in my iPhone 4 it synced with iTunes and at the same time it was charging. This occurred with the other four devices plugged in and drawing power. I also posted four photos of the speed tests for your more detailed information in addition to the video.
I was supplied a sample unit for testing and I promised a fair and honest review.

How can this piece of hardware have seven USB 3.0 ports? It has seven ports, NOT all USB 3.0. My understanding is 2 USB 3.0, 4 USB 2.0 and 1 charging.

This web page has somehow combined multiple products onto one page. As a result it has combined several of my reviews onto the same page. I believe you are looking at one product and looking at the review for another. I hate when amazon or the supplier combines products like this as it is confusing, IMHO, to perspective buyers.

Very good presentation! I just wanted to make one correction to your data values. The charts you presented show values in kilobytes per second in the right hand columns, whereas the X-axis of the charts uses megabytes per second. So the values you are listing should be KB/s instead of MB/s. Correct me if I am wrong.
