That is one of the strangest reasons not to buy something that I've ever seen.

tho for the people saying theres a lot to plug in so you need a lot of ports, most people have a main computer for the printer (share it over network saves a port *tho most printers are wifi anyways*) most gaming would be done via the main computer with a game pad for the benefits of a big tv, same with the ext bluray / dvd / cd), true those that only have a laptop might need the ports but most people have a main home computer for the bigger usb devices

only devices a laptop has 99% for the time to use with it is a wireless mouse (maybe keybored, still only 1 port) a usb / ext hd 1 port, and a ext dvd burner, tho mostly everyone will use a main computer for that due to computer having more power and also due to the computer staying level during the burning so no / less bad writes due to moving the laptop

most laptops come with 3 usb + ports standard (more so when talking about ones that have usb 3),

so hubs are just really a pointless thing,

There's always someone who doesn't understand that there is a world beyond their own thinking :P

I have a 7-port hub on my desktop computer. Why? Because I have a ton of USB devices:

x3 External HDD (a dedicated port each)
Gaming mouse + keyboard
x2 ambx lighting kits
Focusrite VRM (Mixing usage)
Occasional usb soundcard
+ a 5.1 headset that requires a USB for power
X360 wireless dongle
Game capture device
x2 Printers (one wireless, one USB only and not shared as it's a business printer)
Occasional Rocksmith USB cable usage
and more!

We don't all fit in the same box, Chris. Just remember that everyone's needs are different.

I have one of these, the build quality isn't great but it's perfectly functional and is a bargain at this price. Hot!

can you connect this to a mains USB charger to power multiple phones?

1 usb port of computer cannot support enough power for 7 usb port, which means this 7 usb hub cannot working together.. like 3.5 hard drive, need extra power support.

Pretty nifty. Small gripe though, why do the cables have to go out of either end? Sort of a bad design.

And I thought Bluetooth peripherals were very common these days. Especially with the MacBook (I'm typing this with a Bluetooth keyboard/trackpad)

I hate the fact that USB 3.0 use causes drop out failures of wireless mice, keyboards, etc due to the 2.4Ghz interference. Seems like a poor design by the USB consortium.

I had this issue. Very frustrating. Couldn't figure out what it was at first, until I noticed when downloading files it got noticably worse.
Not the best solution really but I got a USB extension cable and moved my receiver about 2 or 3 meters away from the router and all issues seemed to be resolved.

Say the original speed of the USB 3.0 port is X mbps when an equipment is connected directly.
If this hubs is plugged USB 3.0 port on a computer I understand we could get up to seven equipments connected simultaneously to this hub. But what about the speed we will get on one of the seven USB output ? Does that mean the speed will be X/7 (e.g a fractional of 1/7 of the original speed ?). Explanation will be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Will this be compatible with a desktop PC? Could do with a new USB hub

Really Mice/Keyboards shouldn't be using the standard unprotected 2.4Ghz spectrum. They should, like Apple, use Bluetooth. It's way more reliable and doesn't get affected by interference due to the pairing setup. Seems stupid to require extra dongles for keyboards and mice when the computer has bluetooth built in.

A word of warning. MOST USB 3.0 hubs wont work on OS X. Make sure it's got OS X drivers, or it's got a decent quality USB 3.0 controller chip. Apple didn't implement support for a bunch of really crappy USB 3.0 controller interfaces as they cause too many problems even on Windows. In a nut shell, if its a dirt cheap hub it likely has a dirt cheap chip, so likely isn't supported unless you can find the correct drivers. You really don't want to screw around with poor quality USB 3.0 hubs on ANY system as one bad piece of circuitry can fry your machine (I know, it happened to me).

Seems a bit expensive considering it doesn't look like it even comes with an AC adapter?!?!?

The following one has less ports but most people don't have more than 4 USB3 devices anyway and at least this hub comes with a half decent AC adapter (12v 2A which will make available a decent amount of current @ 5v)

just buy a usb 2/3 hub thats mains powered

saves wasting 2 of your laptop / computers ports, 1 to power 1 to plug the main usb in

and as a few have said the max speed will be shared over all the devices that are plugged in, so the gain will be next to nothing unless you have a mains powered hub or only plug in 1 or 2 at the most devices (witch since the hub is using 2 ports already it is really pointless),

--

tho for the people saying theres a lot to plug in so you need a lot of ports, most people have a main computer for the printer (share it over network saves a port *tho most printers are wifi anyways*) most gaming would be done via the main computer with a game pad for the benefits of a big tv, same with the ext bluray / dvd / cd), true those that only have a laptop might need the ports but most people have a main home computer for the bigger usb devices

You couldn't be more wrong, man. Yeah there are casual users that won't need more ports but there are lots of people that use more ports and this is exactly why this product exists. If they were that pointless they wouldn't even have been made. Supply and demand etc.

As an enthusiast photographer and also as someone who occasionally uses a 4 chanel mixer for recording, what with the external hard drive, headsets and lots of other USB shiz that I can't remember, the stock number of ports simply aren't enough.

You know that Bluetooth works over 2.4GHz as well right? Also it is prone to interference from other 2.4GHz devices too (phones, WiFi, etc).

Actually all these devices (Bluetooth included) use frequencies between 2400MHz and 2485MHz. These are license-free and must accept interference from outside sources as according to FCC regulations.

The Bluetooth pairing process does not exempt or protect any device from being interfered with.

Yes & virtually any modern or even old desktop would have that many connections on the back or through the case to the front.

I didn't even consider anyone would be using this with a desktop, that's even more dubious - with a laptop kind of makes sense when ports are v. limited. Elsewhere on this thread seem to be people with an epic requirement for USB ports. Fair enough for them...

You know, it could also mean that people would rather have a bunch of USB ports on either their desk or even the top of their case. You know, for convenience? Or perhaps, it's down to having a single cable trailing at the back of their desk instead of 5-6.

If you think about these things, it starts to become easier to understand :P

For convenience when things are regularly plugged and played fair enough. But to plug your mouse and keyboard onto a hub on your desk just seems stupid (and untidy).
If something does not require easy and regular access there is no particular point having it easily accessible.
& I find it unlikely that someone who dislikes having 5-6 cables trailing at down the back of their desk will want 5-6 cable trailing at the front of their desk or all over their desk?
I understand this is my view only.

What do you feel you're achieving by actually deciding to go against what you WANT to do (as an individual) for the sake of making a point about homogenous social tribes that generally mimic one another. If you dislike trendy sheep, then disregard any connotation that *specific* traits or preferences (which I essentially visualise as an 'equaliser' [of sorts] of taste/belief, like many things in life e.g. politics, religion etc) have to any kind of group, and just do what you want, buy what you want, think what you want and remain true to yourself as *an individual*. The problem for me is that people always try to find a specific 'group' to be a part of, like I mention with religion, whatever, it's always like there are all these deterministic factors of what makes you believe/like/dislike that it seems ridiculous to just assume there's a "best-fit" available out of a few useless candidates (thinking the oligopoly that is UK domestic politics here.) Instead it's better to just be your mu'fukin self and make sure you're aware and conscious of your beliefs and morals etc. I think it's absolutely bonkers to suggest that because of the way this guy worded his post you are somehow revolting and refusing to buy it, the only person that harms is yourself! Unless that perversely appeals to you that is, then go ahead.

For convenience when things are regularly plugged and played fair enough. But to plug your mouse and keyboard onto a hub on your desk just seems stupid (and untidy).

First, it's not stupid. I actually have a few things plugged into the hub (it sits at the back of my desk near the top) which makes it closer to power sockets in my room, i.e. for light kits, drives, etc. So, again, it's rather essential for my setup. It's also cheaper (my hub was cheaper than this deal one) than buying power and/or USB extension cables for all my equipment.

And actually, you just gave me a brilliant idea which is totally relevant here. Sometimes my mouse (connected to my desktop) drags a little or gets caught. If I plugged it into the hub, that would eliminate my drag and it wouldn't get caught!

In fact, going one further... My current keyboard is on a tray, so the cable hangs over the rear edge in my desk's leg-room area. If I plugged it into the hub, it wouldn't be loose and would clear the underside area. lol See? Even for a mouse and keyboard, it's pretty useful.

Also, thanks for making me realise I could do this! :P
