(5 stars) USB ports as far as the eye can see!

By:
This hub is a great addition for my cluttered desk. With proper placement and cable management it cleaned up and centralized all my USB cables I previously had running to front, back, and side USB ports. The fast charge ports are clearly marked and accessible and are great for connecting a cell phone or tablet. Though it might not be initially evident, one is able to charge devices with the non-fast charge ports when connecting the hub to a PC, albeit slowly. External power requirements often serve as a deterant for me on products like this with 10 ports and fast charging it is easy to makes this an exception. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) Love it.

By:
You can never have enough USB ports but this comes close. Easy to install and works great. I am not a big fan of having to use an external power source but having 10 usb ports is worth it.

(3 stars) It just works. Best if mounted.

By:
OK, negatives first. --My unit arrived with the rubber feet only on one side, and the hub is really light, so it moved all over the place. The rubber on the two corners WAS slippery too. Replaced all four feet with a bit of non-slide shelf liner. Stays put. --The mounting holes on the back are slotted such that if you mount the hub horizontally with the 8 ports facing down, it will come loose when you plug anything in (I prefer the cords to face down when mounting something like this sideways--so this one is more preference. Now the good: --It just works. The charging ports do exactly as described, and function even if there's no computer connected. --Connected to a computer (which is on), I was able to trickle charge on more than just the 2 "charging" ports, so nice touch there. --Port separation is good, so all ports could be used at one time. --Full speed. :) --Indicator lights being up on the slanted peak is great. Can see them from almost any angle. Oddly enough, this was a standout feature for some reason. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(5 stars) Mount it!

By:
This is a great USB hub for people with a lot of USB devices. Whether it’s USB memory keys or peripherals, after using it for a week I would highly recommend mounting this on a surface with the 8 USB ports along the edge of that surface. After the 3rd cable, you need to pick up the entire unit to either remove or add devices. Trust me, it gets old fast! On the bottom of the Hub, there are mounting holes for screws (which are not included, 5mm screw-heads fit great, about 2-3mm gap from the surface) or, some good thick 2-sided tape. A little planning will go a long way to ensuring that whatever you’re charging, copying or syncing will be done in a very efficient and (non-cable-tangled) way!

(5 stars) Aewsome USB 3.0 Hub

By:
Well my prayers have been answered. This is the an uber usb 3.0 hub / charger. I run mostly on laptops that have few usb ports of any kind. Now I can connect up to 10 USB devices as well as being able to full charge on 2 of them. This device needs to be plugged in, no device drivers need to be installed on windows or mac for it to work - just needs power for full functionality as the USB 3.0 does not provide enough power to support the full functionality. Right now I have charging 2 phones (iPhone and android), and have 5 usb devices plugged in. My computer has never been so happy. I am using a variety of usb devices and adapter based on SD, microsd, etc. I have used USB hard drives as well without issue. Conveniently this device comes with a soft power switch and needs to be plugged in for full functionality. With it's glossy black exterior and blue LED lights to indicate enabled ports, it looks great. Delivery was fast and painless. It comes with international power plug adapters. I found the box it came in could have been a little smaller but no biggee as cardboard is recyclable. I have tested this on Windows 10 and Mac OSX without an glitches or problems. This products comes with StarTech's great 2 year warranty and lifetime tech support. Online manuals as well if you don't like the included manual. All in all, this is the best of the best as far as USB 3.0 hubs go. I will never go wanting for a place to plug in a USB device. Well done. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

(4 stars) Nice 10 port docking station

By:
Overall i found this product does what it is intended to do. I was happy that Startech had included wrapped around the unit a "read before use" to explain the Fast charge functions otherwise I really would not have understood the meaning or how it functions. Good work Startech for explaining this!! The dock works well and I had no connection issues at all it works pretty flawlessly. My only complaint is i find this hub too light. I find light hubs and docks move too much when you plug in cables. The dock ends up moving by the force on the cables. I want the dock to stay in one place and the cables to be moved. A little more weight to the dock and it would stay in one place. Overall can't complain about function. I received this in exchange for an unbiased review.

(4 stars) USB 3.0 hub

By:
The USB 3.0 give the speed and flexibility with 10 ports to charge phones, iPads, and other devices. The build quality is excellent and packaging to help describe contents is always a plus. Also smaller than I thought is always a bonus.

(5 stars) Excellent USB Charger and Sync

By:
I have been in the AV/IT Integration space for over 30 years. I found this unit easy to setup and use on my Microsoft, Android and Apple devices. This unit has the ability to simultaneously fast-charge up to ten mobile devices. The unit supports various small and large devices (1.5A). The unit installs quickly with no additional drivers or software required, and is compatible with a variety of operating systems, which I tested. The syncing feature worked flawlessly on both my Windows devices and Apple Devices. A great unit for both home and office. I would love to see an smaller automobile version of this product. What is Included: 1 - 10-port USB 3.0 hub with charge & sync ports 1 - USB 3.0 host cable [80 cm/31.5 in.] 1 - universal power adapter 4 - universal power adapter (NA/JP, UK, EU, ANZ) Note: “I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.”
