      This hub installed fine and works great. The only downside is the short USB 3.0 cable that came with it. I connected the hub to my USB 3.0 port on my desktop tower which is located below my desktop. The cable is not long enough to place the hub on the desktop. I presently have it sitting on top of the tower. In this day and age, I was very surprised that the company did not supply a 5-6 foot cable. Especially, since the cable is very different than a typical USB 2.0 at the unit side.

      I purchased two of these and returned them after a week. I had to problems:

      1). The slowed down transfers of USB devices connected to them. If I connected a single USB 3 flash drive to my computer (late 2012 Mac Mini Server), I get sequential read speeds of 56 MB/sec. If I connect the same flash drive to this hub, sequential read speeds drop to 39 MB/sec. I see the same performance degradation on writes. (USB 3 flash drives are Kingston Elite 3.0).

      2). Both units put out a high pitched squeal as soon as my Mac started up. It was quiet enough that you won't notice it if you are in a room with people talking, but in a quiet room, if you are working away, it's enough to drive you nuts.

            I use this hub to connect extra drives and an external Blu Ray burner to my laptop. Since I'm always on the go with my laptop, it's good to be able to leave the drives all plugged into the hub and ready to go when I return with the computer. I just hook the hub to my laptop and boom, I'm ready to roll.

                    This did exactly what I wanted it to do.

                    I have a 17" macbook pro with an expresscard34 slot, and a usb3.0 card in it.

                    I have four 3tb drives that I was tired of either shuttling in and out of the 2 high speed usb3.0 slow on the express card, or using them in the slower mbp usb2.0 built in ports.

                    Now all four are connected to this hub, and I can get all four working with no loss in speed!

                      I like that it's powered, though another big power brick is always a nuisance. However for a USB hub with a lot of things hanging off it needs that extra power. I connected it to an inexpensive add-in USB3 board in the PC and now I'm flying again. Really good value, though in hindsight I should have had a look for one with more ports! Works fine with Aussie 240v power too.

                              Works as advertised. It runs my backup drives so I don't want them running all the time. I disconnected the USB3 cable, but they still run. You have to remove the power cable as well:) They will run as USB2 connection without the power cable connected.

                                Takes the burden of bus powered drives off of my laptop. Plus the addition of four high speed USB 3.0 ports can't be beat. Very pleased. Only drawback is it needs to be reset on start up or sometimes my PC doesn't recognize it's there.

                                  This hub installed fine and works great. The only downside is the short USB 3.0 cable that came with it. I connected the hub to my USB 3.0 port on my desktop tower which is located below my desktop. The cable is not long enough to place the hub on the desktop. I presently have it sitting on top of the tower. In this day and age, I was very surprised that the company did not supply a 5-6 foot cable. Especially, since the cable is very different than a typical USB 2.0 at the unit side.

                                    The only reason I gave this 4-port USB 3.0 hub a 4 star instead of 5 stars is I've only had it a couple of weeks, it will take a couple of years to test the longevity of the product. I tested it on both windows 7 and windows XP. Both recognized it and ran with it right away.
                                    Amazing fast at moving large files. What used to take 50 minutes to move 50 gigs on the old 2.0 USB now takes 6 or 7 minutes.
