Haven't bought it

But remember that it requires a USB 3.0 port to plug in (usually a blue colored port like the ones this item has) if you plug it in a 2.0 or less, it will run like what it was plugged in as it's like trying to start and run a car with a lawnmower battery.

Should be a 5-Star product, but one MASSIVE defect makes it useless.

Let me begin this review by saying that I want to give this product five stars. It is truly an excellent little USB Hub and I am beyond impressed by its performance and speed for the price.

There is, however, one critical flaw in my particular hub that based on other reviews is a fairly common problem, and that is if the cord moves even the slightest bit, it momentarily interrupts the flow of data/power, causing all devices to be disconnected. As a producer who was hoping to use this hub in my home studio and for live performances, this is absolutely unacceptable as I cannot have my midi controllers, audio interface, and hard drive disconnected in the middle of writing or, worse yet, in the middle of a live set!

I have never had USB connection issues with my laptop before, so I have become truly frustrated with this connectivity issue. Like I said, this BY ALL MEANS should be a 5-Star product, but the connectivity defect has rendered this hub entirely useless for me.

I suppose the only bright side is that I am now in need of more that four ports, and have been looking to upgrade to a powered hub anyways, but because of this defect, I am seriously questioning whether or not to buy it from Sabrent.

CONCLUSION: Good product IN THEORY.
BUT disconnects when moved even slightly.
Many people have had zero issues. It’s your gamble.
