HUB 10 USB 3.0 ports + 1 load port 5V / 2.1A home Etekcity with switches and external power supply for PC and Mac.
The evolution of computing demand more and more connections in USB mode, both for monitors, printers, scanners or other … In short, it takes sometimes more than is possible and your PC, it will quickly become tedious disconnect an accessory to put another! This HUB, with 10 USB 3.0 ports extends the possibilities of connections of consistent and meaningful way. Operating in Plug & Play, no need to install drivers to use: you plug a PC port and it will work alone. Moreover, the German manual included in the box is not useful because it is unnecessary to seek any information.
Its USB 3.0 mode allows for ultra fast data transfer rate of about 5 Gb, but it is backward compatible with USB 2.0 (500mbits) and 1.1. (there is that little pedal, but it’s prehistoric, the 1.1! …) .
No need to occupy a USB 3.0 port to charge your smartphone, this HUB has a specific port for charging 2.1mAh (fashion fast load also said fast charge, but adapting to devices 1mAh, this charger is said intelligent.
Equipped with three switches each controlling 3 USB ports, it can cut one or more devices without having to unplug the USB plugs. This will include in our power saving time to stop the eve of accessories, because this little standby consumes more than we think. A final port, permanent this time is on the side of the quick charge sheet of the HUB.
During my tests, everything happened: the camera to the printer, no accessory has been malfunctioning. The charge delivered by the port is 0.9A which does not allow energy to power accessories; this is not surprising because a HUB is not intended to be a powerhouse! The transfer rates to external hard disk drive (HDD) was more than adequate for my backup of the internal disk transfer rates measured 4.32 G in 5 minutes and 45 seconds; as-backups on USB key: it only takes a few seconds to 81Mo.
A very useful accessory that gives satisfaction. The connection and power cables are long enough not to store: one can easily place the hub where it will not disturb the desktop.
