      Stay away from this deceptive device

      Performed well for the first month then in the 5th week exhibited intermittant failure, then in the 6th week total failure. Devices plugged into this device were a 2 month old Samsung T3 SSD 250GB, 6 year old HP printer, and 10 year old Epsom scanner. A new 7 port hub from a different manufacturer reveals nothing is wrong with with any plugged in device. I later discover this J5 Create 7 port USB3 hub has very poor ratings on Amazon. I was in a desperate urgent situation so I didn't get a chance to look at any reviews before buying this device recommended by a Best Buy sales man. Lesson learned - don't let the tyranny of the urgent force you in to making uninformed purchases. Best Buy strictly inforced their 15-day return policy not offering me any form of exchange or refund.

      small & slim, comes with ac adapter

      This thing is very tiny but the case is metal, the usb to computer cord is on one end which is a good place for it, the power plug is next to it. I have not heard of this company before, elite members get a little more time to return things if they're bad. I just set it up today, hooked my blue ray drive to it with no issues at least when reading disks that is haven't tried to burn yet. For those complaining about bus powered devices, simply don't do that folks, plug your high draw devices (like drives) into their own power. if yours didn't come with an ac adapter there are ways around that or just plug that item straight into the computer to avoid issues. I hope mine doesn't fail quickly if it does then I'll know to avoid this product. The usb to computer cable is longer than most products like this one come with. USB 3 is more demanding of quality hardware than usb 2 is/was and it's also a bit new so you may need to accept that there could be a few issues with it.

      This is a lifesaver, Small but powerful

      I typically work on a laptop with 2 usb ports. I keep my mouse receiver plugged in at all times (it is so small, I don't want to lose it.) This leaves me with only one available port to use on my computer. This 7 port usb hub can handle any usb device in any of the ports. I actually returned one that I previously had because there was one port specifically designed for an external hard drive and the rest were for other things. It had a plug that was recommended to be plugged in when using. It was confusing and difficult to use. With this one. It is so easy. I don't have to worry about which port my external hard drive has to go in and I don't have to worry about having to plug anything up. It's small size allows it to be portable, yet it is still powerful. It is a lifesaver for me. I can charge my phone, when my battery is low as well as work on several other things without having to be forced to remove a device that I may or may not need at the moment. It is just so convenient.

      Great Functional Flexibility

      Coming from a flimsy 5-usb hub with a dangly, non-disconnectable usb cable, this was a major improvement. The main features that led me to this product were the sheer number of ports available. They are distanced apart enough that even two of the wider USB thumb drives can fit side-by-side. Since it connects with USB 3.0, I'm able to use that capability on my newer hard drives. Otherwise it performs just as it normally would for cheaper and older drives. May run into issues with too many wireless receivers plugged into it at once. Trying to use a wireless mouse, headset, and controller at the same time created minor input lag issues. The hub is powered, which can be great for using the usb to charge phones, headsets, and any other usb-chargeable devices even when the computer is off. It would be best to disconnect hard drives that would be receiving power while the computer is off so they aren't running constantly when you don't need them. Very happy with its functionality - no complaints so far.

      unusable power supply

      Posted
      noah

      im giving this one star because i just bought this, took it home, and discovered that the power supply is missing the male plugs, rendering the product completely useless. on the outside of the box it says the power supply is optional, which isnt true if you want to plug in an external drive, which is the only reason anyone would purchase this over a cheaper one. i called their customer service line twice, and both times i waited for 15 minutes before being passed off to an answering machine. still havent heard from anyone. i will be returning this product and recommending that everyone stay away from this company, including all you lovely people.

      Died after 1 year of use

      My initial impressions of this hub were favorable. Its made of metal and has a power adapter. The USB 3.0 cable is included and is not something you need to purchase separately. However the item isn't a high quality item. The construction and appearance may fool you. Its another lower quality, cheaply made part that doesn't last long. I purchased this USB hub on June 2nd, 2016. On June 26th, 2017, the USB hub was completely dead. None of the ports worked or recognized anything plugged into the ports. Trying a different USB 3.0 cable between the hub and computer did not fix the problem. So, its obviously the hub that died. The hub died a little over 1 year after I purchased it, so the 1 year warranty already expired by a couple weeks. Therefore I'm out the that I paid for this hub. Its not worth the high price if it only lasts 1 year.

      Decent USB hub

      I purchased this hub to provide an easy-access place on my desk to plug in multiple USB devices. I have two minor criticisms about this device: 1) The included USB cable is too short to span the distance between my computer and the place where I wanted to set it — having to purchase a longer cable increased the overall amount I paid for the solution; 2) I wish the vendor provided a means to mount the unit vertically—double-sided tape works, but it doesn’t really provide a clean solution. Those two deficiencies knocked a star off from my rating, but otherwise the unit works perfectly for my needs.

      Nice to have a USB 3 hub

      Have a USB 3.0 hub to plug into. Nice too. Now I set my laptop up and span my monitors into it via USB. I can plug in my back up drives, and my phone, and DVD player. Lots of uses for this thing. Very practical if you have a laptop for traveling (work) and want a traditional office monitor and like to spread out and not peck away on the keyboard of the laptop. Hubs are always an after thought but I am glad I thought this through before I brought the laptop home. 32 inch monitor in the corner, laptop 3 feet away so I can work on the wireless keyboard facing the screen while doing a VTC (video conf call) from my side. When I VTC, I face the laptop so I am dedicated to the customer. Overall good piece of gear for extra items (it has 7 ports).
