Where to buy

This compact, 7-port USB 3.0 hub is tailored to match the stylish design of your MacBook. It features a sleek, silver sandblasted housing that looks great next to your Apple laptop. And, because the hub is designed with a solid-aluminum casing, it provides the lightweight durability that’s ideal for either travel or desktop usage.

Looks great while expanding your connectivity

This high-quality, Apple style USB hub gives you an easy way to expand your MacBook connectivity. It provides seven USB 3.0 (also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1) hub ports in a compact housing. With more ports, you have more scalability to connect extra USB devices. Plus, you can leave your devices plugged in, so they’re ready to use when you need them.

The 7-port USB 3.0 hub offers a silver sandblast finish that provides a unique and stylish appearance, making the hub look as trendy and contemporary as your MacBook, Ultrabook, or laptop.

The hub features a built-in, 98 cm (38 in) cable that is longer than what most traditional hubs offer. The extended-length cable gives you the flexibility to place the hub and your devices exactly where you want them, and it ensures the hub can connect to your laptop or tablet regardless of where the laptop’s USB 3.0 port is located.

Compact and rugged

This compact hub features seven ports with plenty of space between each port, unlike some USB 3.0 hubs that jam multiple ports into a tightly-packed space which makes it difficult to connect multiple devices to adjacent hub ports. With extra port spacing, you can connect devices and cables that have larger connectors, without sacrificing the hub’s small footprint design.

The rugged aluminum housing offers dependable protection, so the hub is perfect for travel, such as back-and-forth trips from home to office. Plus, the compact hub takes up minimal space on a desk, so you can use it in hot-desk or BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environments.

Save money and time

The easy-to-use hub is plug-and-play and hot-swap compatible, so you can install it quickly, with no additional drivers or software required. It includes a power adapter as well, so you can rest assured that you can connect virtually any USB 3.0 peripheral, even devices with high power requirements. Plus, you can also avoid the nuisance and cost of purchasing new devices by using the USB 3.0 hub with your current USB 2.0 and 1.x devices.

The ST73007UA is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a USB hub, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • USB A-to-B cable

  • Computer USB port

  • USB peripheral(s)

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the USB cable and USB peripheral(s) in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different USB cable, USB port, and USB peripheral in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the hub, make sure that you do the following:

  • If a power adapter is included, provide power to the USB hub.

  • Attach a USB peripheral. The USB hub will not appear in any hardware listings on your system, but USB devices do appear when they are connected.

  • Install the drivers for the USB peripheral.

  • Install the latest drivers for the USB controller and motherboard chipset.

Note: No drivers or software are required for the USB hub to work with your operating system. The USB hub works independently of software and works with any operating system.

When testing your USB peripherals, make sure that you do the following:

  • If required, attach external power.

  • Confirm that the peripheral works on a standard USB port.

If the USB peripheral(s) can be detected on a standard USB port and not on the hub, do the following:

  • Use a new USB A-to-B cable.

  • Test your setup using basic USB peripherals, such as a keyboard or mouse.

  • Test using another USB port.

If the USB device does not work after your computer has been in extended hibernation, it is likely that Windows has automatically turned off the USB Root hub to save power. 

The steps below outline how to configure the USB root hub to stay on during hibernation, to prevent this from happening.
 

Windows 10 / 8

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key + X and select Control Panel.
  2. Click Hardware and Sound, then click Power Options.
  3. Click Change plan settings for the plan you want to change.
  4. Click Change advanced power settings.
  5. Click the plus sign (+) next to “USB settings” and “USB selective suspend setting” to expand the options and change the setting to Disabled.
  6. Click OK to apply the setting.

Note: You may need to disconnect and re-connect your USB device after applying these settings to re-establish the connection.

Windows 7 / Vista

  1. Click the Start button and select Control Panel.
  2. Click Hardware and Sound, then click Power Options.
  3. Click Change plan settings for the plan you want to change.
  4. Click Change advanced power settings.
  5. Click the plus sign (+) next to “USB settings” and “USB selective suspend setting” to expand the options and change the setting to Disabled.
  6. Click OK to apply the setting.

Note: You may need to disconnect and re-connect your USB device after applying these settings to re-establish the connection.

Windows XP

  1. On your desktop, right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
  2. Click the Device Manager tab.
  3. Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers by clicking the arrow to the left of it.
  4. Right-click the first USB Root Hub device and select Properties.
  5. Click the Power Management tab.
  6. Clear the box next to Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
  7. Click OK to apply the setting.
  8. Repeat steps 4-7 for any remaining devices in the Universal Serial Bus Controllers section with “Root Hub” in the name.

Note: You may need to disconnect and re-connect your USB device after applying these settings to re-establish the connection.

Before You Buy

It is possible to use some USB hubs without a power supply, however, doing so may prevent the USB hub or certain high-power USB peripherals from operating.  It is always recommended to use an included power supply with a USB hub when possible.

When a power adapter is not used on a hub that comes with a power adapter, power is drawn from the USB port on the computer and then divided between the ports on the hub. This reduces the power delivery to individual ports and high-powered USB peripherals, such as external hard drives, may not start.

On USB hubs that can use a power adapter, more power can be supplied to USB ports than what is possible with a single USB port.

If your USB peripherals require power adapters, they probably do not require power from the USB port and can be used on a USB hub without a power adapter. With USB peripherals that use power adapters, the USB ports on the hub are only used for data transfer and do not draw power from the hub.

USB peripherals that require low power (for example, keyboards and mice) can be used on hubs without a power adapter, in conjunction with other low-power USB peripherals. In this case, power is drawn from the computer's USB port, as described above.
