    Great... but inconsistent

    • Written by from Wauwatosa

    The 4 ports with USB 3.0 is priceless. The unpredictable power management in this device is not what I was looking for. I use this with a 13" MacBook Pro Retina Late 2013. The Hub often "falls asleep" - loses power and functionality. I unplug and re-plug it into the USB port, but it doesn't wake up. I have to unplug and re-plug the power, which is a pain to have to do every time I want to use the device. I may have to return it if this continues.

    I would not recommend this USB Hub. It looks great, and it is fantastic when powered and working... it's just unreliable.

    There's too much that isn't told, or conflicts

    This hub is totally unsatisfactory:
    1) It uses a Micro-B connector which I've found to be unreliable and results in interrupted connections.
    2) They don't mention the chipset or firmware to ensure compatibility. I also bought an earlier model that was totally unreliable.
    3) They don't list the current available for charging, only referring to it being "fast". What? If only the USB 3 standard, that's 900 ma, short of the 1A normally provided by Apple iPhone chargers.
    4) It won't charge an iPad.
    5) The power adapter only has a 1 meter cable, not long enough to reach from the desk to an outlet without adding an extension cord.
    6) Why aren't the specifications listed for the technically inclined.
    7) It's way too expensive for what you get.
