Very Good Hub - Been Using Mine Since Oct 2016 (2+ years) Have been really satisfied with this hub. It's held up pretty well for all the use it takes on the front ports, and the front/back configuration is perfect for my application. In the 2+ years that I've had this, the only issues that I've had are:1) It will occasionally drop an HDD port, then reconnect. Not very often, but it does happen.2) One of the front charging ports died.Things I Like: 1) Front & back port layout lets me keep "always connected" devices/cables out of my way & behind everything else. Things like mouse & keyboard antennas, backup hard drive cables, etc., as well as the unit's power and connection cables. 2) The stand. It lets you set this up vertically instead of horizontally to save space. It will also let you attach the hub to the underside of a desk or cubby without having to take up any desk space at all (this is what I do).Things I'd Like Better: 1) Wish the front ports were (3) USB & (1) Charging instead of (2) & (2). 4A Great Small Powered USB Hub Needing more USB connections, I decided on the hub because (1) it's powered, (2) it has a stand, (3) it has front & rear connections, (4) it has a nice number of 3.0 ports and (5) it has 2 "quick charge" ports on the front. As the listed specifications confirm, it is a lot smaller than the photos make it appear. I consider this a plus. The blue power light remains on as long as the hub is plugged into a power source (i.e., there's no on/off switch). However, I do not find it too bright at night in my bedroom. Everything I plugged in, even devices that warn they should not be plugged into a hub, was immediately recognized by my laptop as if the device was plugged directly into the laptop, something I have not experienced with several other hubs. I like the idea of front & rear ports because I can plug items I don't want to be removed in the rear, where the cables are more difficult to get to. I know what I plug into the more accessible front slots is temporary and/or can be removed without interrupting important devices. One can argue the pluses and minuses of using 2 slots for charging only ports, when items can be charged through any port. Well, I like them. I'm not sure what makes these "quick charging" ports and did not test whether, in fact, anything charges quicker in those ports versus the other ones, but I do know that items do charge quickly. I assume that is due to the fact that the hub is separately powered. But, the reason I like these ports is that a I can plug in a device for charging only without having to play around with software to set the item to charge only (as opposed to syncing, etc.). Plus, I will always have 2 ports available for charging, without having to remove other USB connected devices. I can always add another hub if I should regularly need additional ports. To summarize, this is a small, well-functioning, powered USB hub with thoughtful features. Sure, there are thousands of hubs out there to chose from, but I am very happy with this one. 5Like the form factor, works but has bugs I really like the standing form factor, had many drive connected. however, if you try to use 2 of the connected drive together, you will loose connectivity to all of them and it will re-mount again. So, if you are copying files form one connected drive to another connected drive, connections will be lost shortly. Both of the charging ports, if I charge 2 device at once, one of them don't work. I charge an ipad and an android phone, the ipad starts beeping(actually the charging song goes on and off, on and off. 24 Stars for HB-UMP3 and 5 STARS for Sabrent Tech Support TeamI have a Mac Book Pro running windows and needed more USB ports. I routinely connect internal drives via USB to my laptop for recovering data, so I wanted something with more power than the standard USB port connection power. After researching online I purchased this Sabrent 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub with included 5V/2.5A power adapter (HB-UMP3) on February 9, 2016. In addition to the reviews for this product I also own other Sabrent products I am happy with giving me comfort for their name and their product line.I was not disappointed in my HB-UMP3. My only negative about the HB-UMP3 are the Individual Power Switches and LEDs. I feel like this is an unnecessary feature adding another breaking point to the unit. I would have preferred the USB ports on the switch all be active, but can also appreciate the ability to disable if that helps give power to the active USB ports.This HB-UMP3 has worked perfectly for me and my needs UNTIL it quit working in April, 2017. I could not readily identify the warranty, so I logged a tech support ticket on the Sabrent website on April 30, 2017. They asked for a copy of the PO, which was easy to supply since I purchased it through Amazon. After supplying the PO I received a replacement unit at no charge to me within days.I would have given this unit 5 stars had it not stopped working one year and 2 months after the original purchase. I can give the Sabrent tech support team 5 stars for the quick and easy customer service to provide me a replacement unit and standing behind their product.4Failure after 6 months.I hooked this up to a Raspberry Pi to provide a powered option for external hard drives. I liked the idea of switches on each port as I live on a boat and this gave me the option to switch off things that I wasn't using frequently without having to pull the plug and have a loose wire hanging around. The product just didn't last, but it did trick me into thinking it did.6 months after I got it, one of my external drives started to make an odd clicking noise. If I unplugged the drive and plugged it back in, it would go away for a while. I plugged the hub into my laptop for a day and the same thing happened. My thought was that this drive was going bad. I had another drive also hooked up to the hub that wasn't having any issues. So I bought a new drive. Swapping 3TB of info between drives took over a day and my laptop was pretty much unusable during that time. What does this have to do with the hub? Fast forward another 6 months ...I started hearing the clicking again. I had actually plugged the other drive in a week prior as I accidentally deleted something off the new drive that I needed. No big deal. I unplug the old drive. Clicking noise continued. It was the new drive. Plugged into a different port than the old one used to be. I couldn't believe my bad luck. I plugged the hub into my laptop again and after a few hours got the same thing, and I couldn't even access the drive anymore. On a whim I unplugged the hub and plugged the drive directly into the laptop hoping maybe I didn't lose all my data. And then ... no issues. For over a week. No clicking. No need to transfer anything.In essence, the hub itself was slowly dying. Cost me the better part of 2 days and a $120 drive. I bought a different 7 port powered hub, without switches. Different brand. I've had no issues with the old drive or the new drive for several months. I don't know if the switches cause the issue, or if it's the brand. Sure, I have an extra drive that's perfectly fine now, but that was 2 days of my life that I'll never get back.1Suggest getting the power supplyIts OK. The way the LEDS light you may think one is on that is not. There is a white plastic frame that is around the switch buttons that diffuse the light from a blue LED under it. So, at least on mine, the blue light bleeds onto the white plastic frame of the switch next to it. I got the power supply. Without it, my HDD did not work on all slots. This was with it plugged in by itself - nothing else drawing power. With the power supply this I think the problem went away. I wish it had a more flexible cord, the stiff cord pushes the hub out and makes it look cluttered. So, it works, but nothing to write home about3A Value for My Hard Earned Buck - But Was Later Disappointed This is not the first time I purchased a Sabrent Port. I purchased one, a 2.0 USB unit, a little over five years ago and it performed flawlessly, so, when I upgrade/replaced my system, I purchased two of the new 3.0 USB units to replace the Sabrent and another unit I purchased from another firm. Needless to say, the new units performed perfectly as soon as I plugged them in, I connected all of the equipment into the new units, one by one, and the new computer recognized each device as an old friend. I had the entire system connected, up and running within three hours from the first stage to actual work. Sabrent has the best value in appearance, utility and reliability of any port I have owned. Some of the other brands had an operational life that could be measured in only a few hours. A year later, I became disappointed in this product. I installed the 2 hubs into my new system being built and was plagued by peripheral devices dropping out. The mystery deepened until I went to the hub of one of the 2 I installed and found the C-type USB connector that connected the hub to the system was loose, causing the peripheral device dropout. Did the circuit card inside break or is it a bad soldering joint? As there is no way to repair the hub, I had to purchase another and install it as a stop gap measure. While the hub worked great some of the time, it did cause a lot of heartburn due to the bad input jack. 3Exceeded my Expectations My main computer crashed with a catastrophic failure so my son a Computer Department Manager for his company came out to get me set up with a new computer. Part of his set up was to utilize "Acronis" back-up software to automatically back-up all files/data and he also used Acronis to do a "Clone" of the hard drive as it was yesterday. To do what he wanted to do I bought this USB Hub and with getting every done we stressed the hub by attaching one 1TB external hard drive, one 500GB external hard drive, mouse, keyboard, to this USB Hub and then attached the Hub to a 3.0 USB port on the computer. The massive transfer of data went smoothly. Very pleased with how this USB Hub performed. At 0300 hours every day C-Drive will automatically back up to the 1TB external drive and now that it has all of the files the back-up only takes a few minute at most because it only backs-up anything files/data that has changed during the day, and new files/data, or any deleted files. This USB Hub makes life a lot easier for me. UPDATE November 22, 2018, HUB works so good on my computer I bought one for my wife's computer and it works just as good on her computer. 5Great Product For A Great Price This product is working well with no problems. Installation is easy. With the emphasis today for computers with multiple (but never enough) USB ports and the fact that almost all of the devices on the market require a USB connection, this product is an excellent solution. There are a total of nine USB ports on this device. Five are on the back for devices that are not usually connected/disconnected or are relatively permanent (i.e. monitors, WD My Passport external back up drives, etc) and four are on the front of the device. Note: Two (Red) of the four ports are only for device charging (iPads, IPhones, etc.) and the other two (Blue) USB ports allow for connectivity to your computer.Additionally, I use a 2.4 GHz wireless keyboard and mouse. The transmit-receive power from both devices, which are located on my desktop, to the front or rear USB ports of my computer where the antenna (dongle) is inserted is insufficient to use either of these peripherals without connectivity interruptions. I bought an Amazon three-port USB HUB, installed the antenna (dongle) in the three-port device, connected the Amazon HUB to the rear of this Sabrent HUB and I can work with no problems whatsoever.Be sure to measure the distance from the rear of your computer to the area that the device will be located and order a USB extension cord if needed. 5The Ultimate HUB! FInally!!! Everything ive been looking for in a USB HUB.This thing has its own power source which is an awesome advantage over the cheapos.I have 2 SSD drives that I have plugged in using StarTech USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable .I also have 4 USB 3.0 Sticks for various storage functions one which is dedicated to system backup.I have been able to boot from either of the 2 SSD drives whenever I choose. One SSD is for my JOBSo I love being able to have everything I need hooked up to this one hub and have everything NEATLY organizedBecause I was able to screw the slide in plate underneath my desk.I seriously went from having a mess on my desk and constantly having to swap 3.0 devices and thumb drives to leavingall plugged in and most of it nicely concealed freeing up a nice amount of space on my desk.Speed? Absolutely no loss in speed transfer.The Bonus- 2 FAST charging ports and they really are fast. My cell phone is full power in a fraction of the time I was used too with my factory charger.I seriously Never thought id be excited about a USB hub but there it is. I highly recommend. 5What a difference a POWERED USB hub makes!I was having endless problems with my Macbook and its lack of USB pots. I had a few unpowered USB hubs but the lag and intermittent functioning made my life miserable. I had a Bamboo pen tablet and a wireless mouse plugged in, but also my wired headset, and two external monitors. The Macbook could handle all of this, but with the extra demands of two external monitors the one Macbook USB port all of this data was flowing through was choking the entire system. I had only heard of "powered USB hubs" a few times and they seemed like a stupid idea (like I actually know anything about computers after almost 4 decades). Wow was I wrong. I bough this because it was cheap and had a cray amount of positive reviews. I knew instantly (within 5 minutes of testing) that this was EXACTLY what I needed.Okay, so as to the brand (Sabrent). never heard of them. I like the buttons to turn off each USB port individually. I have my pen tablet plugged in but turned off (except when I am using it) by poking a button on the top of this hub. This prevents the Macbook trackpad or external bluetooth mouse from fighting with the pen tablet (in case I wave my hand over the pen tablet by mistake). I suppose I could have two microphones, or two or three of anything and just turn on the port of the one I want to use. The "on/off" buttons for each port really allow you to be creative with what you want to do with this. In fact I read in the manual that you can daisy chain over 100 ports (25+ hubs) if you had an impossibly large number of USB devices you wanted to have instant access to. I am glad I didn't get a USB hub that does not allow me to turn off or on ports instantly. I have seen the light and feel compelled to sing the praises of this wondrous invention. I am also feeling kind o stupid for doubting the awesomeness of a powered USB hub in the first place. Anyway, i hope this helps. Thanks for reading it.5Great product for both macOS and Windows devices!I bought two for my 2015 MacBook Pro w/ Retina (2x USB 3.0 Type-A ports) as well as one for my wife's 2016 Lenova Yoga (1x USB 3.0 Type-A port). At any given time I have a mouse, two external HDs (Silicon Power Armor 2TB and a Seagate Portable 2TB), thumb drives (PNY Turbo Attach 256GB), as well as charging cables for various cell phones (iPhone 6 Plus and some Kyocera 3G flip-phone), noise-cancelling ear buds (Bose QuietComfort 20), a universal card readers (Acuvar All-in-one), etc. I have not had any issues with the product thus far. I'm able to move files back and forth between the various external storage media as well as the macOS El Capitan and Windows 10 virtual portions without issue. My only regret is not checking to see if the manufacturer had an item with more than 4 ports...which is why I bought two for my MacBook Pro in the first place! :-)5Lack of information of product function causes unnecessary return.Friday I needlessly returned this product as defective because when I plugged it into the power adapter the individual port indicator LED's only lit for ports 2,3, and 4 when the corresponding button was depressed. I incorrectly assumed that the device was faulty and asked for an exchange which was thoughtfully overnighted to me. Imagine my dismay when exactly the same thing occurred with the replacement. I had not even bothered to connect the first unit to a USB port because the indicator LED for port 1 didn't light. This time I was curious to see if port 1 would even be recognized when the device was plugged into a USB port and a flash drive installed. I plugged the device into a USB port, depressed the button for port 1 and it's LED lit up. Apparently when connected to the power adapter alone the port 1 LED does not light up and unlike ports 2,3, and 4, only lights up when the device is connected to an active USB port on a powered up machine. It would be nice if that little tidbit of information was contained in a small explanatory note. It would have saved a great deal of time and frustration for both myself and the Amazon rep. I spoke to. Absent information to the contrary one would naturally expect all 4 ports to behave the same at all times. The manufacturers are making things needlessly difficult for themselves, their distributors and end users by omitting any helpful hints in their packaging. Further experimentation has revealed that port 1 does nor receive any power from the power adapter, only from the USB port it's connected to. One of the reasons I purchased a USB hub with a power adapter was so I could charge USB devices without having to have my computer powered up; examples being my Bluetooth headset for Dragon and a flash drive audio recorder. It's nice to be able to charge these devices without the computer running, just don't try and do it on port 1, it won't work.4Well - kinda but not quite hardly... But okay I suppose.I love the idea of being able to switch the ports on and off without having to disconnect the devices... And for all intents and purposes it works just fine. However, this is supposed to support USB 3.0 - I can't get it to. It's plugged into a 3.0 port on the computer - but if I plug in a 3.0 device into one of its 4 ports my operating system tells me the device can perform better when connected to a 3.0 port. If I remove the Sabrent switch from the equation and plug said device directly in - it works at 3.0 speed. Putting the Sabrent back in-between the device and the computer brings the data transfer speeds back down to 2.0 levels. So if you don't mind waiting. Go for the convenience of the switch. If you do - go with something else. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate BTW. And I've looked for drivers for the hub just in case there was such a thing. Nothing found on the Sabrent website...3I can only insert two regular size USB Flash drivesI can only insert two regular size USB Flash drives into the first and third, or the first and the forth ports. Because the ports are to close together. Only the very smallest of the USB Flash drives will fit in all 4 ports at the same time! So, if you're ordering this unit for USB Flash drives only, you may only be able to use it as I have, no more than two flash drives at a time, bummer! Unless you have all small USB Flash drives the size of for instances the Kingston DTSE9 series https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DYQYITG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . They don't show in any of their ads with 4 full size USB Flash drives installed at once. So, out of the 20+ USB Flash drives I have, only three likr the Kingston DTSE9 size and one regular will work at a time. I was getting ready to order their Sabrent 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub next after ordering the 4 port, I would have never have wasted their time or mine had I know about the ports to close together.1Great except for one problemThe design of this hub is exactly what I needed. I just have one problem. Every time I turn on my computer it doesn't recognize my Brother printer. Everything else that's plugged in to the hub works fine (keyboard, HD, charge ports, etc.). I tried moving the printer plug to another port on the hub but I get the same result. I found that if, after I turn the computer on, I unplug the USB from the hub and plug it back in then the printer works fine. It continues to work fine until I restart after a shut down. It only takes a second to do this trick but it is a bit annoying. I called tech support and they said they had no idea what the problem was but would be happy to replace the hub for me. I opted to keep it since I don't think it would fix the problem. Other than that I am pleased with the purchase.3Buyers beware, not for heavy users I wanted to love this product, because i needed a really good hub so i paid for a more known brand, but what did i got?:1) Build Quality: Good on the outside, but something must be really bad on the inside because if i dare to touch the HUB it will disconnect several or all units.2) USB Powered HDD, since this was a power hub i tough i was going to be able to use this unit with a usb powered external drive, but i was wrong. It finds the hdd and you can browse the files, but a heavy read/write and the unit will disconnect (itself and the rest of the units). Since i only had 1 USB powered drive (the rest use external power bricks) i could plug just this unit directly to the pc, but it wasnt what i paid for.3) It doesn't like multiple writes to external drives. Use a external drive as the target for a torrent client trough this hub, and you will get disconnected (it's the only use case in which i only get 1 drive disconnected while the others seem unnaffected). This didnt happen with the drive connected directly to the computer.4) I havent timed it yet so i cant give an exact number, but charging my phone trough a 2A wall charger is way faster than the charging ports on this hub (even though they are rated at 2.4A, and i was using the same type A -> micro USB cable on both scenarios).Would give it 0 stars if i could 1USB hub works fine, fast charging nowhere to be found!I purchased the Sabrent 7-port USB hub about a year ago because I needed a USB hub and I liked the idea of charging my phone or tablet quickly while I'm using the computer - this feature is why I purchased this hub out of the many on Amazon. While the USB hub works as expected, the two "fast charging" ports do not come close to meeting my expectations - compared to the regular/data 3.0 USB ports on the same hub, it only charges a whopping FOUR MINUTES faster.I've determined this doesn't charge quickly by timing how long it will take to charge my Samsung S7 from 0% to full. This Sabrent hub's fast charging ports needed 2 hours 49 minutes to charge the S7 from 0%, compared to 2 hours 53 minutes from the data ports on the same hub. Compare this to the Samsung 5v/2A charger that came with the phone, which will complete the task in 1 hour 45 minutes, or 2 hours 40 minutes on the 5v/1A charger that came with my Kindle Fire. I've tried this both with and without my usual USB devices plugged into the hub ports with no noticeable impact.While it's possible I received a faulty device, I'd expect to see more issues arise from whatever's disabled or damaged the advertised quick charging feature. That, and I see a few other reviews complaining that this does not, in fact, charge devices any faster than regular USB 3.0. I'll reach out to Sabrent and see what they have to say about it.2

If I unplugged the drive and plugged it back in, it would go away for a while. I plugged the hub into my laptop for a day and the same thing happened. My thought was that this drive was going bad. I had another drive also hooked up to the hub that wasn't having any issues. So I bought a new drive. Swapping 3TB of info between drives took over a day and my laptop was pretty much unusable during that time. What does this have to do with the hub? Fast forward another 6 months ...I started hearing the clicking again. I had actually plugged the other drive in a week prior as I accidentally deleted something off the new drive that I needed. No big deal. I unplug the old drive. Clicking noise continued. It was the new drive. Plugged into a different port than the old one used to be. I couldn't believe my bad luck. I plugged the hub into my laptop again and after a few hours got the same thing, and I couldn't even access the drive anymore. On a whim I unplugged the hub and plugged the drive directly into the laptop hoping maybe I didn't lose all my data. And then ... no issues. For over a week. No clicking. No need to transfer anything.In essence, the hub itself was slowly dying. Cost me the better part of 2 days and a $120 drive. I bought a different 7 port powered hub, without switches. Different brand. I've had no issues with the old drive or the new drive for several months. I don't know if the switches cause the issue, or if it's the brand. Sure, I have an extra drive that's perfectly fine now, but that was 2 days of my life that I'll never get back.1Suggest getting the power supplyIts OK. The way the LEDS light you may think one is on that is not. There is a white plastic frame that is around the switch buttons that diffuse the light from a blue LED under it. So, at least on mine, the blue light bleeds onto the white plastic frame of the switch next to it. I got the power supply. Without it, my HDD did not work on all slots. This was with it plugged in by itself - nothing else drawing power. With the power supply this I think the problem went away. I wish it had a more flexible cord, the stiff cord pushes the hub out and makes it look cluttered. So, it works, but nothing to write home about3A Value for My Hard Earned Buck - But Was Later Disappointed This is not the first time I purchased a Sabrent Port. I purchased one, a 2.0 USB unit, a little over five years ago and it performed flawlessly, so, when I upgrade/replaced my system, I purchased two of the new 3.0 USB units to replace the Sabrent and another unit I purchased from another firm. Needless to say, the new units performed perfectly as soon as I plugged them in, I connected all of the equipment into the new units, one by one, and the new computer recognized each device as an old friend. I had the entire system connected, up and running within three hours from the first stage to actual work. Sabrent has the best value in appearance, utility and reliability of any port I have owned. Some of the other brands had an operational life that could be measured in only a few hours. A year later, I became disappointed in this product. I installed the 2 hubs into my new system being built and was plagued by peripheral devices dropping out. The mystery deepened until I went to the hub of one of the 2 I installed and found the C-type USB connector that connected the hub to the system was loose, causing the peripheral device dropout. Did the circuit card inside break or is it a bad soldering joint? As there is no way to repair the hub, I had to purchase another and install it as a stop gap measure. While the hub worked great some of the time, it did cause a lot of heartburn due to the bad input jack. 3Exceeded my Expectations My main computer crashed with a catastrophic failure so my son a Computer Department Manager for his company came out to get me set up with a new computer. Part of his set up was to utilize "Acronis" back-up software to automatically back-up all files/data and he also used Acronis to do a "Clone" of the hard drive as it was yesterday. To do what he wanted to do I bought this USB Hub and with getting every done we stressed the hub by attaching one 1TB external hard drive, one 500GB external hard drive, mouse, keyboard, to this USB Hub and then attached the Hub to a 3.0 USB port on the computer. The massive transfer of data went smoothly. Very pleased with how this USB Hub performed. At 0300 hours every day C-Drive will automatically back up to the 1TB external drive and now that it has all of the files the back-up only takes a few minute at most because it only backs-up anything files/data that has changed during the day, and new files/data, or any deleted files. This USB Hub makes life a lot easier for me. UPDATE November 22, 2018, HUB works so good on my computer I bought one for my wife's computer and it works just as good on her computer. 5Great Product For A Great Price This product is working well with no problems. Installation is easy. With the emphasis today for computers with multiple (but never enough) USB ports and the fact that almost all of the devices on the market require a USB connection, this product is an excellent solution. There are a total of nine USB ports on this device. Five are on the back for devices that are not usually connected/disconnected or are relatively permanent (i.e. monitors, WD My Passport external back up drives, etc) and four are on the front of the device. Note: Two (Red) of the four ports are only for device charging (iPads, IPhones, etc.) and the other two (Blue) USB ports allow for connectivity to your computer.Additionally, I use a 2.4 GHz wireless keyboard and mouse. The transmit-receive power from both devices, which are located on my desktop, to the front or rear USB ports of my computer where the antenna (dongle) is inserted is insufficient to use either of these peripherals without connectivity interruptions. I bought an Amazon three-port USB HUB, installed the antenna (dongle) in the three-port device, connected the Amazon HUB to the rear of this Sabrent HUB and I can work with no problems whatsoever.Be sure to measure the distance from the rear of your computer to the area that the device will be located and order a USB extension cord if needed. 5The Ultimate HUB! FInally!!! Everything ive been looking for in a USB HUB.This thing has its own power source which is an awesome advantage over the cheapos.I have 2 SSD drives that I have plugged in using StarTech USB 3.0 to 2.5" SATA III Hard Drive Adapter Cable .I also have 4 USB 3.0 Sticks for various storage functions one which is dedicated to system backup.I have been able to boot from either of the 2 SSD drives whenever I choose. One SSD is for my JOBSo I love being able to have everything I need hooked up to this one hub and have everything NEATLY organizedBecause I was able to screw the slide in plate underneath my desk.I seriously went from having a mess on my desk and constantly having to swap 3.0 devices and thumb drives to leavingall plugged in and most of it nicely concealed freeing up a nice amount of space on my desk.Speed? Absolutely no loss in speed transfer.The Bonus- 2 FAST charging ports and they really are fast. My cell phone is full power in a fraction of the time I was used too with my factory charger.I seriously Never thought id be excited about a USB hub but there it is. I highly recommend. 5What a difference a POWERED USB hub makes!I was having endless problems with my Macbook and its lack of USB pots. I had a few unpowered USB hubs but the lag and intermittent functioning made my life miserable. I had a Bamboo pen tablet and a wireless mouse plugged in, but also my wired headset, and two external monitors. The Macbook could handle all of this, but with the extra demands of two external monitors the one Macbook USB port all of this data was flowing through was choking the entire system. I had only heard of "powered USB hubs" a few times and they seemed like a stupid idea (like I actually know anything about computers after almost 4 decades). Wow was I wrong. I bough this because it was cheap and had a cray amount of positive reviews. I knew instantly (within 5 minutes of testing) that this was EXACTLY what I needed.Okay, so as to the brand (Sabrent). never heard of them. I like the buttons to turn off each USB port individually. I have my pen tablet plugged in but turned off (except when I am using it) by poking a button on the top of this hub. This prevents the Macbook trackpad or external bluetooth mouse from fighting with the pen tablet (in case I wave my hand over the pen tablet by mistake). I suppose I could have two microphones, or two or three of anything and just turn on the port of the one I want to use. The "on/off" buttons for each port really allow you to be creative with what you want to do with this. In fact I read in the manual that you can daisy chain over 100 ports (25+ hubs) if you had an impossibly large number of USB devices you wanted to have instant access to. I am glad I didn't get a USB hub that does not allow me to turn off or on ports instantly. I have seen the light and feel compelled to sing the praises of this wondrous invention. I am also feeling kind o stupid for doubting the awesomeness of a powered USB hub in the first place. Anyway, i hope this helps. Thanks for reading it.5Great product for both macOS and Windows devices!I bought two for my 2015 MacBook Pro w/ Retina (2x USB 3.0 Type-A ports) as well as one for my wife's 2016 Lenova Yoga (1x USB 3.0 Type-A port). At any given time I have a mouse, two external HDs (Silicon Power Armor 2TB and a Seagate Portable 2TB), thumb drives (PNY Turbo Attach 256GB), as well as charging cables for various cell phones (iPhone 6 Plus and some Kyocera 3G flip-phone), noise-cancelling ear buds (Bose QuietComfort 20), a universal card readers (Acuvar All-in-one), etc. I have not had any issues with the product thus far. I'm able to move files back and forth between the various external storage media as well as the macOS El Capitan and Windows 10 virtual portions without issue. My only regret is not checking to see if the manufacturer had an item with more than 4 ports...which is why I bought two for my MacBook Pro in the first place! :-)5Lack of information of product function causes unnecessary return.Friday I needlessly returned this product as defective because when I plugged it into the power adapter the individual port indicator LED's only lit for ports 2,3, and 4 when the corresponding button was depressed. I incorrectly assumed that the device was faulty and asked for an exchange which was thoughtfully overnighted to me. Imagine my dismay when exactly the same thing occurred with the replacement. I had not even bothered to connect the first unit to a USB port because the indicator LED for port 1 didn't light. This time I was curious to see if port 1 would even be recognized when the device was plugged into a USB port and a flash drive installed. I plugged the device into a USB port, depressed the button for port 1 and it's LED lit up. Apparently when connected to the power adapter alone the port 1 LED does not light up and unlike ports 2,3, and 4, only lights up when the device is connected to an active USB port on a powered up machine. It would be nice if that little tidbit of information was contained in a small explanatory note. It would have saved a great deal of time and frustration for both myself and the Amazon rep. I spoke to. Absent information to the contrary one would naturally expect all 4 ports to behave the same at all times. The manufacturers are making things needlessly difficult for themselves, their distributors and end users by omitting any helpful hints in their packaging. Further experimentation has revealed that port 1 does nor receive any power from the power adapter, only from the USB port it's connected to. One of the reasons I purchased a USB hub with a power adapter was so I could charge USB devices without having to have my computer powered up; examples being my Bluetooth headset for Dragon and a flash drive audio recorder. It's nice to be able to charge these devices without the computer running, just don't try and do it on port 1, it won't work.4Well - kinda but not quite hardly... But okay I suppose.I love the idea of being able to switch the ports on and off without having to disconnect the devices... And for all intents and purposes it works just fine. However, this is supposed to support USB 3.0 - I can't get it to. It's plugged into a 3.0 port on the computer - but if I plug in a 3.0 device into one of its 4 ports my operating system tells me the device can perform better when connected to a 3.0 port. If I remove the Sabrent switch from the equation and plug said device directly in - it works at 3.0 speed. Putting the Sabrent back in-between the device and the computer brings the data transfer speeds back down to 2.0 levels. So if you don't mind waiting. Go for the convenience of the switch. If you do - go with something else. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate BTW. And I've looked for drivers for the hub just in case there was such a thing. Nothing found on the Sabrent website...3I can only insert two regular size USB Flash drivesI can only insert two regular size USB Flash drives into the first and third, or the first and the forth ports. Because the ports are to close together. Only the very smallest of the USB Flash drives will fit in all 4 ports at the same time! So, if you're ordering this unit for USB Flash drives only, you may only be able to use it as I have, no more than two flash drives at a time, bummer! Unless you have all small USB Flash drives the size of for instances the Kingston DTSE9 series https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DYQYITG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . They don't show in any of their ads with 4 full size USB Flash drives installed at once. So, out of the 20+ USB Flash drives I have, only three likr the Kingston DTSE9 size and one regular will work at a time. I was getting ready to order their Sabrent 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub next after ordering the 4 port, I would have never have wasted their time or mine had I know about the ports to close together.1Great except for one problemThe design of this hub is exactly what I needed. I just have one problem. Every time I turn on my computer it doesn't recognize my Brother printer. Everything else that's plugged in to the hub works fine (keyboard, HD, charge ports, etc.). I tried moving the printer plug to another port on the hub but I get the same result. I found that if, after I turn the computer on, I unplug the USB from the hub and plug it back in then the printer works fine. It continues to work fine until I restart after a shut down. It only takes a second to do this trick but it is a bit annoying. I called tech support and they said they had no idea what the problem was but would be happy to replace the hub for me. I opted to keep it since I don't think it would fix the problem. Other than that I am pleased with the purchase.3Buyers beware, not for heavy users I wanted to love this product, because i needed a really good hub so i paid for a more known brand, but what did i got?:1) Build Quality: Good on the outside, but something must be really bad on the inside because if i dare to touch the HUB it will disconnect several or all units.2) USB Powered HDD, since this was a power hub i tough i was going to be able to use this unit with a usb powered external drive, but i was wrong. It finds the hdd and you can browse the files, but a heavy read/write and the unit will disconnect (itself and the rest of the units). Since i only had 1 USB powered drive (the rest use external power bricks) i could plug just this unit directly to the pc, but it wasnt what i paid for.3) It doesn't like multiple writes to external drives. Use a external drive as the target for a torrent client trough this hub, and you will get disconnected (it's the only use case in which i only get 1 drive disconnected while the others seem unnaffected). This didnt happen with the drive connected directly to the computer.4) I havent timed it yet so i cant give an exact number, but charging my phone trough a 2A wall charger is way faster than the charging ports on this hub (even though they are rated at 2.4A, and i was using the same type A -> micro USB cable on both scenarios).Would give it 0 stars if i could 1USB hub works fine, fast charging nowhere to be found!I purchased the Sabrent 7-port USB hub about a year ago because I needed a USB hub and I liked the idea of charging my phone or tablet quickly while I'm using the computer - this feature is why I purchased this hub out of the many on Amazon. While the USB hub works as expected, the two "fast charging" ports do not come close to meeting my expectations - compared to the regular/data 3.0 USB ports on the same hub, it only charges a whopping FOUR MINUTES faster.I've determined this doesn't charge quickly by timing how long it will take to charge my Samsung S7 from 0% to full. This Sabrent hub's fast charging ports needed 2 hours 49 minutes to charge the S7 from 0%, compared to 2 hours 53 minutes from the data ports on the same hub. Compare this to the Samsung 5v/2A charger that came with the phone, which will complete the task in 1 hour 45 minutes, or 2 hours 40 minutes on the 5v/1A charger that came with my Kindle Fire. I've tried this both with and without my usual USB devices plugged into the hub ports with no noticeable impact.While it's possible I received a faulty device, I'd expect to see more issues arise from whatever's disabled or damaged the advertised quick charging feature. That, and I see a few other reviews complaining that this does not, in fact, charge devices any faster than regular USB 3.0. I'll reach out to Sabrent and see what they have to say about it.2
