Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This hub is extremely well made, from a mechanical perspective. Having been a machinist & tool designer for 20 some years, I can honestly say that this is how I would build a hub. It is constructed from extruded aluminum with punched holes for the ports. The finish is sort of a semi-matte black (a bit glossier than a true matte black) with a textured finish. I cannot speak for the quality of the electronics inside, nor the construction of the actual USB ports. I assume this hub contains low-cost Chinese built electronic components, housed in no less than a military-duty housing.
I believe Mark's review of 2 stars was a bit harsh, and seems to reflect his understandable frustration of the overall purchase & return, and subsequent customer service directly from the company. I get that, I hate hassles like what he went through. But the hub the itself does not merit only 2 stars by any means. However, I do have a point of concern: the specs state that this hub will supply 900ma...
The power switch on this hub is electronic, not physical. It has no on or off position. So if power is removed from the hub (say, from a power failure, or an eco AC strip that cuts power to some outlets when the computer is off), it won't turn back on automatically when power is restored. This is incredibly annoying if the hub is in a hard-to-reach location. They call this an "industrial design" hub, but it would fail in an industrial application based on this "feature" alone.
This is built like a tank: Excellent quality. Win 7 Pro 64 bit recognized all of portable drives and USB flash drives immediately.
Some complain about there being no feet. I can see their point, but the truth is the user should decide how to position this and the design makes that possible. It's more convenient for me to lay it on its side, so that the cables plug in horizontally instead of on top. I added four adhesive cushions on the surface where the name appears in the picture since that will be facing down (I used the clear plastic pads that are a little smaller than a dime and are widely available at hardware stores, etc.)
I have no problem with the indicator lights, which are tiny.
Excellent hub. It's great to see a device that isn't cheap plastic.
Update: Works fine with 240V. I use when traveling outside the US and it's fine. Great device. I'm running four 2 TB WD external drives, 2 Lexar USB flash drives and a pretty fat wi-fi...
