      Great transfer rate and connectivity

      I was going to replace this 4 port hub (can't remember when i bought it now) with a 7 port hub from other companies, but reverted back to this hub for raw speed. Transferring from a Seagate portable drive to a desktop external drive races at 100 MB/sec, which is the rated read rate for the Seagate USB3 portable drive. This rate is with both drives going through the hub and all 4 ports plugged in. The two 7 port "USB3" hubs I have tested so far transfer at slothful rates from 10 to 20 MB/sec ... way too slow when you have Terabytes to move around and organize. I just transferred about 6 Terabytes between various drives yesterday and today, as i am trying to organize 6 years of movie files and photos, and I had no dropouts or disconnects. Kudos to Insignia for a simple reliable hub which achieves its primary goal: moving data fast.

      Good, but buggy if you’re abusing it

      I believe this is a decent product. I use it with my keyboard (Logitech G213), webcam (logitech pro C920), preamp/microphone setup (Behringer U-Phoria UMC202HD + Audio-Technica AT-2005), and video capture box (Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition). When I have everything up and running, this box can get a bit unstable, dropping one or more of my devices. I will say that when I’m not fiddling with it, or abusing it, it works like a dream. I just think my workload for it is just too much at times. I would suggest this for someone who needs a few extra USB ports for storage drives and keyboards, but not much else unless they want to deal with it sometimes seizing and dropping a device that draws more than a keyboard and isn’t in the powered slot.

      Does not work

      I installed the hub. Windows 7 did a perect plug and play install of the unit, and it was up and running. However, when I attached 3 USB 3.0 hard drives, the drives were never recognized by the computer at boot time. All three hard drives work and are recognized when attached to a USB 2.0 hub on the same computer. The issue here is that I wanted the transfer speed. As an IT tech (25 years) all I can say is that this pretty much just does not work. Not worth dabbling with. If what you want to do is attach a mouse and a keyboard and maybe one drive or so, then this might work for you. But then again so would a USB 2.0 hub. There is no benefit whatsoever in using a USB 3.0 hub for your mouse. If on the other hand what you are really after is much better speed for attaching a USB 3.0 Hard Drive, find another option. I could not get one drive to work reliably much less three or four. This is going back.

      Picked this up to solve the problem of constantly having to swap out cables and usb drives on my iMac. It's not as pretty as the silver metal model offered by Belkin, but it also costs half as much. Since ultimately the thing is going to be sitting behind my computer, permanently plugged into my two external drives, a printer and a UPS backup, I didn't really care what it looked like as long as it works. That's not to say it's ugly, it's just a black block of plastic about the size of a deck of cards, with a bright blue LED light on the top when it's plugged into a power source. And that sucker is BRIGHT! it could have served as a nightlight, frankly. I ended up sticking some electrical tape over it since my computer is in my guest room and I was worried about keeping my guests up all night with the glare. All in all, solid purchase.

      Love these hubs

      I love these hubs. I have three attached to my Mac. They transmit speed well and are very stable. I use SoftRAID to create mirror RAIDs and these are great for that. I put one drive on one hub and another on another hub. This takes away a single point of failure. It works great, currently I have 32TB's of RAID storage running on these. On the third hub I have high speed SSD drive for my video of editing. No issues with scrubbing through video with fast drive plugged into these. I also like that they have an external power supply. This give them enough power to run portable SSD drives that need to pull the power from the port. I have PNY, Samsung and Sandisk drive that run over 400 Mb's a second on these hubs. Have not tried them on Windows but I would figure they would be just as solid on that OS as well.

      I bought a trash...

      After reading reviews, I decided to try this Insignia USB 3.0 Hub. Five mins after opening box,I know I bought a trash, maybe only worth $5. The Upstream port, which is used to connecting to PC, is so sensitive that even the least moving will cut the connection. Other 4 USB 3.0 ports are the same. How bad the connection can be? I connected my phone to Hub and I'm typing this review now. My phone is repeating charging sound because the connection is cut frequently JUST BECAUSE I AM TYPING ON KEYBOARD! BTW: My Logitech keyboard and game mouse are NOT WORK even when the connection is good. The hub is made all by plastic. I can accept its cheap material, but the poor connection and capability make it a trash and waste of money. Well, hope I just be unfortunate to get a bad sample, but I suggest you to think twice before you bought this cheap small plastic trash.

      Insignia™ - 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub Review

      Works as advertised except for two nagging features. The USB cable connecting the hub to the computer is very stiff and because of its light weight is insufficient to keep it in place on the desktop in spite of the four rubber disks on its bottom surface. The movement combined with the very loose fit of that cable's connector into the hub causes it to continuously work itself out and break contact every time I move the lap top. A lash up fix is to attach a rubber band to the cable and wrap it around the hub body as shown in the two attached photos which works until the rubber rots and breaks.

      Works Fine but Too Small

      Whoever built my computer must have never heard about USB connected devices. After hooking up keyboard, mouse, headphones, printer, I was out of USB plugs. I got this 4 port USB hub because it was the only one in the store. It worked fine, but I need more. I got a Manhatten 28 plug USB expansion hub. It works fine, too. But now I have as much USB connection as I could want, and at least that is one thing I don't have to worry about. I would recommend this to a friend, but with the warning that it would be much better to have seven times as many USB plugs available.
