So, you just got a Mac with USB 3.0 support huh?,
This review is from: Sabrent Aluminum 4 Port USB Hub with 9.5 Inch Cable (Personal Computers)
Well if so, you might wanna skip this one and go for a USB 3.0 hub instead. But if you're so uncool as to have last year's model, then stick around.
In appearance, this hub from Sabrent could sit right next to any Mac and look right at home. The built quality is very good, colors matched well. The ports are really tight, so tight I was at first concerned I'd break something. But once I got things in and out a few times, it was easier. They are still tight enough though that I can twirl it in the air by the USB device plugged to it and it won't get disconnected. Wiggle testing (plug in USB device, wiggle it about, watch for device to stop being recognized by computer) was good to go. Plugging it into a USB compliance test jig (access to such being a benefit of my day job), the unit performs well within the USB 2.0 specification. Now, it's not a powered hub, but it was able to handle a full load of flash drives and SSDs without an issue, so unless you're planning on something more power hungry, it's not something to worry yourself over.
