Customer Reviews

Compact & Unobtrusive, Works Great on Laptops, HTPCs, TV Boxes, and moreI have bought several of these, and we use them on our laptops, Home Theater PC/TV Boxes, and more. They're great for any device that you wish had more USB ports. I like that you can swivel the ports to any position. I also really like that this USB hub is unobtrusive, since it sits right up against your device's USB port that it is plugged into, and it doesn't take up any "desk" space. I especially did not want to have yet another box-type device sitting on top of my entertainment center, taking up lots of room there and collecting lots of dust. I also didn't want a USB port dangling from my laptop. IMPORTANT TIP: If you use one of these to connect USB hard drives to your device (as we do with our Home Theater PC/TV Boxes), be aware that your device will assign new USB port letters to the new USB ports that you have just added with this hub. Therefore, if you have previously designated a path for any media on a connected USB hard drive (using Kodi or other media player software), and then you plug that same hard drive into one of these new ports on this USB hub, then you will probably have to go back and change the path of your added media to the new USB port's letter so that Kodi (or other media center software that you might be using) will be able to find your media in its new location.5Simple and easy more USB 2 for laptop, recommended.simple, easyI just plugged Sabrent Premium 4 Port Aluminum Mini USB 2.0 Rotatable Hub [90 /180 Degree Rotatable] (HB-UMMC) into my USB 2 port on my laptop. Added a few things which I wanted to connect to my laptop, but I did not have USB ports open.The fact that it rotates is nice as I may hit it a few times while using the pc as I am not accustomed to it yet.Now that it is in and my mouse and my phone are connected to it, Windows 10 tells me things are trying to connect, but my phone doesn't stop charging and the mouse works fine. I see other reviewers say this will get loose, so maybe it is not just me.....I am so excited as I have ports to set up my headphones now!I recommend this.Update - July 5, 2017This is frustrating as I can have my laptop on a flat surface and not touching either the laptop, the port, nor is anything attached to the port, and it connects and disconnects. This doesn't happen all the time, but when it does, it is so annoying! It kept dropping my wireless mouse, and while it was charging my S5 it would not connect to it to transfer files. Then, BOOM! Just fine for a while. I dropped a star for that.I play World of Warcraft and just can't have beeps of connections going on and mouse being unresponsive.Update July 6I realized I plugged this into a USB3 port not a USB2, so I changed it to the correct and WOW! No disconnections, no problems whatsoever! I put my review back to 4 stars and say to you to check to make certain you are using the correct USB connections on the PC ... my bad.4Very satisfied. I have two wireless mouse and a wireless ... Very satisfied. I have two wireless mouse and a wireless keyboard which I always have the hubs plugged into my laptop. Being that there are only three USB ports on my laptop, I needed a USB hub to hold all the extra plugs. I have this helpful device constantly plugged in even when I'm not using any of my mice or keyboard. The fact it can rotate is what sold me. I also really didn't want one that's connected by a wire, making my laptop immobile unless I physically carry a hub with my laptop. The light that that shines when connected is a small white dot. This isn't bothersome at all. The silver of the hub blends in perfectly with my laptop. 5Excellent Little Hub My Desktop Computer has only 4 USB slots at the rear, I had no space to plug my mouse,and keyboard and other accessories ... I purchased this 4-Port Mini USB 2.0 Rotatable Hubin order to access more ports.This Sabrent 4-Port Mini USB 2.0 Rotatable Hub is a very good little hub that takes upvery little space. The aluminium body makes it sturdy and strong, and aesthetically pleasing.I plugged it to the rear of my PC, plugged my devices in it and forgot all about it.This HUB works fine and I have no regrets to date.I have no hesitation in recommending this 4-port hub.Time would tell about its durability. 5JunkThe ports are so tight it can be very difficult to insert your USB accessories--even harder to remove them. Worse than that, sometimes the USB connection just doesn't work so you can't use your mouse or whatever you have plugged in. We tested this on both a Window's 10 Dell laptop and an HP Ubuntu laptop--same experience on both.I have another USB extension device that works great, but it's bulkier and has a longer cable--was hoping to have something compact like this product, but it simply is not made with enough quality.Sidetrack: I suspect the biggest reason most folks by a USB extender like this is because the newer laptops have mostly USB-C ports but the accessory manufacturers have not caught up. For example, I can't find a cordless keyboard/mouse combo that uses a USB-C adapter. It's 2019...let's GO!1Works Great For The Surface Pro With A Portable External Hard Drive.The Surface Pro only has one USB port, so you can only connect one USB device at a time. To me, it is imperative that this USB hub will be able to let me access the contents inside my portable external hard drive while at the same time, let me use the USB mouse and keyboard. I've previously purchased a different USB hub (model: HB-UMLS) from Sabrent before and it has been working quite adequately. The main reason I choose this rotatable hub is because it doesn't have the short cable between the male and female connectors unlike the majority of other USB hubs.After several tests, I m happy to say that the hub was able to power all of the USB peripherals that I plugged into it. I was able to access the contents from both my flash drive and external hard drive all while using my two mice and one keyboard at the same time. They all worked flawlessly as expected. I ve also test the data transfer speed between the internal and external USB hard drives. The transfer rate is fairly consistent and the connection is fairly solid during the transfer regardless if the Surface Pro is plugged in to a power source or not.5Hit or miss... Could be great, could be terrible (Updated 10/11/17)Original review: I use this in combination with the Findway 4 Ports USB Printer Share Sharing Switch Hub MT-1A4B-CF to use a keyboard and mouse on numerous devices and it works very well. I chose this particular hub because I've purchased many Sabrent products in the past and have been very satisfied. There is a small blue LED behind the Sabrent logo which lights up, letting you know the hub is active. The swivel connector is a nice touch, but it does feel a bit flimsy. It moves and wobbles around, but unlike another reviewer, I have had zero issues with devices disconnecting. I plugged in a few flash drives to test it and connected it to my computer. I grabbed the entire hub and moved it around in all directions, entirely expecting Windows to notify me that the devices were ejected (write caching was disabled on both drives, just in case). None of the flash drives disconnected and the hub remained illuminated the entire time. Since this is going to be permanently attached to a USB switch, it's not going to be moving much if at all making it a perfect fit for me.I would love to give this 4.5 stars as the build quality doesn't affect the actual functionality of the device. Unfortunately, I cannot attest to how long the hub would work if subjected to constant movement/rotation and plugging/unplugging.Updated review from 4 stars to 3 stars on 10/11/17: Much like another reviewer, I am having issues with this hub disconnecting for no good reason. Unlike that reviewer, my hub is and always has been completely immobile. I never touch it and it never moves. For no good reason, my keyboard and mouse will stop responding for a few seconds and all the LEDs will cycle (indicating the devices lost and regained power) and my computer will make the sound when a new USB device is detected. At first, I thought it was my USB switcher, so I swapped it for my old Tek Republic TUS-400 USB Sharing Switch - 4 Port Manual Switch One USB Device/Hub Between Four Computers which I had used flawlessly for years. Even with the known good USB switch, the will disconnect all devices with the lightest touch. Swapped this Sabrent hub for a known good USB hub and I've had zero issues.Decided to take apart the hub and see what's going on. The way the hub is designed is in two parts. There is the PCB which has the female USB A ports (where you plug in your devices) and then there are 4 wires that connect to the male USB A plug. The wires allow the male head to spin around 180 . Unfortunately, the wires have exposed ends. Because of this, the DATA+ and DATA- lines would come in contact with each other and cause the device to eject. Removed the original 28 AWG wires, replaced them with 18 AWG stranded aluminum, and properly soldered them in place. The hub seems to be working significantly better now, but only time will tell. Knocked a star off because of this.3Great for using older USB 2.0 devices on your PC/Mac! I have a Mac. I got a VivoFit fitness band as a gift. The problem is, the ANT connector didn't work, because all my Mac USB ports are 3.0, which confuses the older USB 2.0 technology. This was the perfect solution! It interfaces between your 3.0 port and USB 2.0 devices perfectly, and (on the Mac) sits conveniently on the back of the screen.The ONLY catch is that it's almost too wide. You'll want to put it on one of the end ports. It doesn't really fit very well between 2 other USB cables, causing strain on both.The older ANT device worked perfectly through this unit! Problem solved. 5Perfect dongle for those on the move!I used this dongle on a daily basis. I have the Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 and we all know that a 2 in 1 or more like a 3 in 1 only has 1 usb port and one mini display port. After I plug this dongle on the side of my SP I am able to connect other usb devices to it like my external monitors. The only thing is that unless you're using the MS Surface Dock-which I have at home, the more devices you use to connect to the SP the faster the battery will drain on you. It's a fair trade-off as I only use this dongle when I'm traveling for business and I don't want to lug around my MS Surface Dock. The SD is just too big to carry around with you at all times bc it's got 4 usb port, an ethernet port and, 2 mini display ports. Currently I'm using the display port that I purchased from Best Buy that was intended for the MacBook Pro but it seems to work well with the Surface Pro and it doesn't take up that much space in my backpack. When I'm traveling I just use the dongle to connect to other monitors that uses USB cable. That way I can just bring my SP with me and this dongle and I'm all set but when I'm at home I plug the SP into my Surface Dock which is connected to my 2 external monitors, well, 3 if you count the SP display as a monitor.5Works great for my surface pro Works great for my surface pro, I like the swivel but it seems to be very cheaply made and I would say you could break it if you looked at it the wrong way.It works its the right price, although I would have paid a few more bucks for something more solid construction wise.Edit 10/16/15 I received a email from the seller, they wanted to let me know in response to my review that if it did break they would replace and examine the broken one for quality control and to make improvements to the product, that's forward thinking and superior customer service imho and Necessitates another star added to my review.Edit 12/22/15 I'm adding another star I use this everyday since I received it, I dropped this thing down a flight of stairs concrete and still working so my initial reaction of being cheap and fragile seems to be totally unfounded Necessitating bumping to five stars and a definite recommendation.Thanks Sabrebt.) 5A real workhorse and dependable.A real workhorse and dependable. I use this for port on my work computer. That means I plug it in every day and use it all day long. I ordered it because my new computer only has two ports and I needed at least four ports. It always works, it s very reliable, and I like the fact that once you have your devices plugged into it, it can be left standing straight up or tilted to the side.5GREAT PRODUCT.....But..... I love this little thing. I use it all day everyday on my Macbook. It is ~about the same color. I use to to power mouse, laptop fan, usb flash drive and external hard drive. I have also tried it on my external Hard drive reader with both a 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch Hard drives and I works great. Would tell some people about it. I will be getting another one soon, for my wife's Macbook Air and one for my iMac.My only concern is being careful inserting cable because I afraid it might break. But, as long as you are careful //like me// then I don't see a problem.UPDATE:When I first got the "hub" it worked great. I used it on my Macbook Pro, my iMac, Windows PC and Linux PC. Fast forward to about a month ago, it dents seem to work sometimes. The lights come on yes. If I plug say a usb mouse it would light up but not function. If I plug in a usb Drive, same light up not function. Sometimes I can get it to work on my iMac, but I bought it to use on my Macbook Pro.Rating dropped from 5 stars to 3, (maybe 2.5). Because it "works" sometimes. 3Meh. It works. Mostly.*sigh* I really want to like this product, especially since it's one of the only USB hubs with this contained design (i.e., you can walk around with it attached to your laptop without having cords dangling). It's cheap. It does its job okay, giving you extra USB ports if you find yourself in a situation where you need to use several USB drives and only have two ports on your laptop. The silver one looks nice attached to a MacBook.But I really wish there was some competition to force them to design it a little better. I know that I can only expect so much at this price, but it's flimsy, and the problems with that are:1) The major issue: Whenever I *lightly* bump or touch it, there's a decent chance that it's going to jostle the connectors just slightly such that my laptop thinks I force-ejected all of the drives attached to the hub. This is not cool. This is especially not cool if doing sensitive work with files that can get corrupted when that happens. I think this has to do with its ability to rotate.2) A nit-picky issue: The rotating mechanism eventually sort of loses its stickiness (so on one of these that I have, it kind of flops around now instead of nicely clicking into 0 /90 /180 /270 positions like it's meant to and staying put).3FOR USB 2.0 OR LESS - it's a great laptop design! I am completely impressed with the Sabrent Device. It's a lot smaller than i thought it would be, which is an extra plus and the swivel seems to work wonderfully. I measured the power that comes out of the ports with a USB Tester (see video) and every one of them were shooting equal amounts of power.When my MacBook sleeps it significantly slows down the power going to the device which I'm glad about since it could be an inadvertent waste of battery life. The swivel worked fine for me and it worked on the usb 3.0 as well (the output was the same as the 2.0 but it works.It's too easy for run out of USB ports and this device is the most unassuming one I have found and for the price?? You just can't beat it and the customer service (from what I"ve seen on the comments) seems fantastic! 5[UPDATED 12/31/17] Potential overheating issue that may damage device USB ports...[UPDATE 12/31/17 - Noticed that this hub was starting to cause my Macbook Pro to get unusually warm with only a USB mouse plugged into it and causing a slight overheating issue. Returning this device and looking for another USB hub solution.]I picked up this 4-port mini USB hub to expand the number of ports on my Macbook Pro. I have an older 13" model before the retina and touch bar were added, but this version did have two USB ports available. While I do admit that I find the Mac's touch pad more sensitive and easier to use than other laptops-- I still prefer plugging in a USB mouse when working for extended periods of time on image editing. That unfortunately means I already use up one of my USB ports and find myself coming up short if needing to plug in more than my mobile device to keep charged while away from home without outlets to plug in a charger. This does provide a more compact solution versus picking up a multi USB port box with a cable to find space for in my work area. The casing for this 4-port USB hub is made from a pretty sturdy metal to avoid chipping or damage while using during travel. I like that it allows me to rotate the hub up or down so I can keep it close to the laptop itself or make the other laptop port available for use when needed. It doesn't sit too flush on whatever USB port you plug it into allowing for ease of rotation, and in the case of my Macbook Pro, it allows just enough space to keep lowered down and rested by my device while not hitting my additional mircoSD card adapter that's located beside one of the USB ports of my laptop. One concern I do have with this mini USB hub is how at times it is difficult to remove a USB device I've plugged into it-- it holds the USB well but perhaps a bit too well that I have to take extra care while pulling hard to remove my device from the hub. Because this hub rotates, I am also worried that the constant force needed to remove items that will not always be used with the hub may cause breakage over time. When I try to unplug a device I no longer need to use in the hub, I can see it pull away from my laptop USB port slightly and attempting to bend with the force of removing the plugged in device from the port. I've taken extra care to hold the hub into place while inserting or removing devices from the hub as I can see this potentially being the first aspect to break or wear down during regular use. At the moment it seems solid and works to provide additional ports while traveling, but I may need to consider keeping my eye open for a different solution as this one may not last as long as I'd like in the long term. As for speed transfer, I haven't utilized this for hub for document transfers from USB at this time, but it does appear to allow for a steady flow of charge to my mobile device when charging it on the side. I've had some hit-or-miss experiences with Sabrent products in the past, so I'm hoping that the aluminum mini USB hub does have more improvements than what I'd noted in other reviews. I'm still concerned about the wear and tear on this product even for the price.2Works Great With 3 USB, but Slows at 4 || WITH WINDOWS 10 || I can easily use 3 out of the 4 ports for whatever I want. If I plug in 4 USBs, I lose the speed on Windows 10 to view all of my files in order to begin transferring files. Other than that, it works amazing. The reason why it slows is because on Windows 10, when you click the 'files' folder, it immediately directs you to your 'recents', which includes any files you've downloaded recently. It takes FOREVER to load them. You can easily turn off the auto direct, however, so then it loads the files just fine. So this product is pretty great.I gave a 3 on the durability because, honestly, if this got wet, it's NOT waterproof. But I am confident I can drop it and keep using it. 4Works. I've had no problems with my unit, although it sits a tad looser in the slot than I'd like. I have two laptops side-by-side, and it allows me to plug USB devices into the laptop on the right by lifting the ports above the edge of the laptop on the left. Build quality is adequate. Rotates smoothly and clicks into place in each of its three positions (0 /90 /180 ). 4Don't know about longevity, but shape is awkwardI bought to plug this into the back of my small form factor PC. Because of the rounded end near the USB plug itself, it protrudes into the area of the USB port next to the one it is plugged into, so you can't plug just any USB device with a cord into that second port--there is no room for the cord to extend. I eventually managed to plug the tiny receiver for my mouse and keyboard into it, but the hub sits awkwardly behind the PC, and it was a delicate operation to get it to land completely with the receiver in place. If you don't have something tiny like a wireless receiver, it will effectively use two USB ports: the one it is plugged into and the one next to that. If I were starting from scratch I'd buy the "Sabrent 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub with Individual Power Switches and LEDs" instead, as it has a plug attached to a cord, but it is not worth returning this, considering the low price.Also, let's be honest: any hub that uses one port and offers four ports gives you THREE more ports, not four! (I remember from grade one that 4 minus 1 equals 3!)I can't speak to the longevity of this, as it is too new.3

The problem is, the ANT connector didn't work, because all my Mac USB ports are 3.0, which confuses the older USB 2.0 technology. This was the perfect solution! It interfaces between your 3.0 port and USB 2.0 devices perfectly, and (on the Mac) sits conveniently on the back of the screen.The ONLY catch is that it's almost too wide. You'll want to put it on one of the end ports. It doesn't really fit very well between 2 other USB cables, causing strain on both.The older ANT device worked perfectly through this unit! Problem solved. 5Perfect dongle for those on the move!I used this dongle on a daily basis. I have the Microsoft Surface Pro 2017 and we all know that a 2 in 1 or more like a 3 in 1 only has 1 usb port and one mini display port. After I plug this dongle on the side of my SP I am able to connect other usb devices to it like my external monitors. The only thing is that unless you're using the MS Surface Dock-which I have at home, the more devices you use to connect to the SP the faster the battery will drain on you. It's a fair trade-off as I only use this dongle when I'm traveling for business and I don't want to lug around my MS Surface Dock. The SD is just too big to carry around with you at all times bc it's got 4 usb port, an ethernet port and, 2 mini display ports. Currently I'm using the display port that I purchased from Best Buy that was intended for the MacBook Pro but it seems to work well with the Surface Pro and it doesn't take up that much space in my backpack. When I'm traveling I just use the dongle to connect to other monitors that uses USB cable. That way I can just bring my SP with me and this dongle and I'm all set but when I'm at home I plug the SP into my Surface Dock which is connected to my 2 external monitors, well, 3 if you count the SP display as a monitor.5Works great for my surface pro Works great for my surface pro, I like the swivel but it seems to be very cheaply made and I would say you could break it if you looked at it the wrong way.It works its the right price, although I would have paid a few more bucks for something more solid construction wise.Edit 10/16/15 I received a email from the seller, they wanted to let me know in response to my review that if it did break they would replace and examine the broken one for quality control and to make improvements to the product, that's forward thinking and superior customer service imho and Necessitates another star added to my review.Edit 12/22/15 I'm adding another star I use this everyday since I received it, I dropped this thing down a flight of stairs concrete and still working so my initial reaction of being cheap and fragile seems to be totally unfounded Necessitating bumping to five stars and a definite recommendation.Thanks Sabrebt.) 5A real workhorse and dependable.A real workhorse and dependable. I use this for port on my work computer. That means I plug it in every day and use it all day long. I ordered it because my new computer only has two ports and I needed at least four ports. It always works, it s very reliable, and I like the fact that once you have your devices plugged into it, it can be left standing straight up or tilted to the side.5GREAT PRODUCT.....But..... I love this little thing. I use it all day everyday on my Macbook. It is ~about the same color. I use to to power mouse, laptop fan, usb flash drive and external hard drive. I have also tried it on my external Hard drive reader with both a 2.5 inch and 3.5 inch Hard drives and I works great. Would tell some people about it. I will be getting another one soon, for my wife's Macbook Air and one for my iMac.My only concern is being careful inserting cable because I afraid it might break. But, as long as you are careful //like me// then I don't see a problem.UPDATE:When I first got the "hub" it worked great. I used it on my Macbook Pro, my iMac, Windows PC and Linux PC. Fast forward to about a month ago, it dents seem to work sometimes. The lights come on yes. If I plug say a usb mouse it would light up but not function. If I plug in a usb Drive, same light up not function. Sometimes I can get it to work on my iMac, but I bought it to use on my Macbook Pro.Rating dropped from 5 stars to 3, (maybe 2.5). Because it "works" sometimes. 3Meh. It works. Mostly.*sigh* I really want to like this product, especially since it's one of the only USB hubs with this contained design (i.e., you can walk around with it attached to your laptop without having cords dangling). It's cheap. It does its job okay, giving you extra USB ports if you find yourself in a situation where you need to use several USB drives and only have two ports on your laptop. The silver one looks nice attached to a MacBook.But I really wish there was some competition to force them to design it a little better. I know that I can only expect so much at this price, but it's flimsy, and the problems with that are:1) The major issue: Whenever I *lightly* bump or touch it, there's a decent chance that it's going to jostle the connectors just slightly such that my laptop thinks I force-ejected all of the drives attached to the hub. This is not cool. This is especially not cool if doing sensitive work with files that can get corrupted when that happens. I think this has to do with its ability to rotate.2) A nit-picky issue: The rotating mechanism eventually sort of loses its stickiness (so on one of these that I have, it kind of flops around now instead of nicely clicking into 0 /90 /180 /270 positions like it's meant to and staying put).3FOR USB 2.0 OR LESS - it's a great laptop design! I am completely impressed with the Sabrent Device. It's a lot smaller than i thought it would be, which is an extra plus and the swivel seems to work wonderfully. I measured the power that comes out of the ports with a USB Tester (see video) and every one of them were shooting equal amounts of power.When my MacBook sleeps it significantly slows down the power going to the device which I'm glad about since it could be an inadvertent waste of battery life. The swivel worked fine for me and it worked on the usb 3.0 as well (the output was the same as the 2.0 but it works.It's too easy for run out of USB ports and this device is the most unassuming one I have found and for the price?? You just can't beat it and the customer service (from what I"ve seen on the comments) seems fantastic! 5[UPDATED 12/31/17] Potential overheating issue that may damage device USB ports...[UPDATE 12/31/17 - Noticed that this hub was starting to cause my Macbook Pro to get unusually warm with only a USB mouse plugged into it and causing a slight overheating issue. Returning this device and looking for another USB hub solution.]I picked up this 4-port mini USB hub to expand the number of ports on my Macbook Pro. I have an older 13" model before the retina and touch bar were added, but this version did have two USB ports available. While I do admit that I find the Mac's touch pad more sensitive and easier to use than other laptops-- I still prefer plugging in a USB mouse when working for extended periods of time on image editing. That unfortunately means I already use up one of my USB ports and find myself coming up short if needing to plug in more than my mobile device to keep charged while away from home without outlets to plug in a charger. This does provide a more compact solution versus picking up a multi USB port box with a cable to find space for in my work area. The casing for this 4-port USB hub is made from a pretty sturdy metal to avoid chipping or damage while using during travel. I like that it allows me to rotate the hub up or down so I can keep it close to the laptop itself or make the other laptop port available for use when needed. It doesn't sit too flush on whatever USB port you plug it into allowing for ease of rotation, and in the case of my Macbook Pro, it allows just enough space to keep lowered down and rested by my device while not hitting my additional mircoSD card adapter that's located beside one of the USB ports of my laptop. One concern I do have with this mini USB hub is how at times it is difficult to remove a USB device I've plugged into it-- it holds the USB well but perhaps a bit too well that I have to take extra care while pulling hard to remove my device from the hub. Because this hub rotates, I am also worried that the constant force needed to remove items that will not always be used with the hub may cause breakage over time. When I try to unplug a device I no longer need to use in the hub, I can see it pull away from my laptop USB port slightly and attempting to bend with the force of removing the plugged in device from the port. I've taken extra care to hold the hub into place while inserting or removing devices from the hub as I can see this potentially being the first aspect to break or wear down during regular use. At the moment it seems solid and works to provide additional ports while traveling, but I may need to consider keeping my eye open for a different solution as this one may not last as long as I'd like in the long term. As for speed transfer, I haven't utilized this for hub for document transfers from USB at this time, but it does appear to allow for a steady flow of charge to my mobile device when charging it on the side. I've had some hit-or-miss experiences with Sabrent products in the past, so I'm hoping that the aluminum mini USB hub does have more improvements than what I'd noted in other reviews. I'm still concerned about the wear and tear on this product even for the price.2Works Great With 3 USB, but Slows at 4 || WITH WINDOWS 10 || I can easily use 3 out of the 4 ports for whatever I want. If I plug in 4 USBs, I lose the speed on Windows 10 to view all of my files in order to begin transferring files. Other than that, it works amazing. The reason why it slows is because on Windows 10, when you click the 'files' folder, it immediately directs you to your 'recents', which includes any files you've downloaded recently. It takes FOREVER to load them. You can easily turn off the auto direct, however, so then it loads the files just fine. So this product is pretty great.I gave a 3 on the durability because, honestly, if this got wet, it's NOT waterproof. But I am confident I can drop it and keep using it. 4Works. I've had no problems with my unit, although it sits a tad looser in the slot than I'd like. I have two laptops side-by-side, and it allows me to plug USB devices into the laptop on the right by lifting the ports above the edge of the laptop on the left. Build quality is adequate. Rotates smoothly and clicks into place in each of its three positions (0 /90 /180 ). 4Don't know about longevity, but shape is awkwardI bought to plug this into the back of my small form factor PC. Because of the rounded end near the USB plug itself, it protrudes into the area of the USB port next to the one it is plugged into, so you can't plug just any USB device with a cord into that second port--there is no room for the cord to extend. I eventually managed to plug the tiny receiver for my mouse and keyboard into it, but the hub sits awkwardly behind the PC, and it was a delicate operation to get it to land completely with the receiver in place. If you don't have something tiny like a wireless receiver, it will effectively use two USB ports: the one it is plugged into and the one next to that. If I were starting from scratch I'd buy the "Sabrent 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub with Individual Power Switches and LEDs" instead, as it has a plug attached to a cord, but it is not worth returning this, considering the low price.Also, let's be honest: any hub that uses one port and offers four ports gives you THREE more ports, not four! (I remember from grade one that 4 minus 1 equals 3!)I can't speak to the longevity of this, as it is too new.3
