    Satechi 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub (9 Port USB 3.0 + 1 iPad Charging Port) 5 Volt, 5 Amp

    Details

    The Satechi 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub adds nine additional USB 3.0 ports and one iPad-charging port to your PC or Mac. This allows you to connect and use USB devices such as digital cameras, external hard drives, flash drives, and printers, all from a single hub. The Hub is uniquely designed with three switches that control each group of three USB 3.0 ports; each group of three is lit with an attractive blue LED when powered on, as well as a separate LED for each port when a device is in use. Powered by USB 3.0 and providing data rates of up to 5.0Gbps, this 10-Port Hub is the ideal solution for transferring data between your computer and external USB storage devices. Equipped with a power supply, the Satechi 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub guarantees electric current stability and the effective operation of connected USB devices. It does not require any software, drivers, or complicated installation process. With the slim, strip-shape design the Hub saves your precious desktop space, and also adds style with a sleek, glossy finish. The 10-Port Hub is extremely portable and easy to move between systems or take on the road.

    iPad Charging
    The 10th port, located on the end of the hub, is capable of charging your iPad and features an On/Off switch. iPads are typically unable to charge from a computer's USB ports, so the Satechi 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub provides unique functionality compared to similar hubs.
    Note
    We recommend that no more than three external hard drives be connected to the 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub at one time. This will provide maximum efficiency of the 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub because it contains three chipsets (one chipset can operate one external hard drive efficiently). The three external hard drives should be connected to the first three ports on the hub (closest to the power source).

    Expand your computer's existing USB 3.0 port to nine additional USB 3.0 ports

    Tenth port is capable of charging your iPad

    Testing speeds of up to 5.0Gbps with USB 3.0

    Three switches let you control the power of three groups of USB 3.0 ports

    Attractive blue LEDs and a glossy finish ensure the 10-Port hub looks great on any desk

    Equipped with a 5V 5Amp power supply

    Meets expectations I have gone through two other cheap USB 3.0 ports. This is well built. Like the ability to turn off ports, saves unplugging drives etc not needed at the moment.
    The charging port is fast.

    great product and does what it claims. I have 6 external hard drives plugged into this unit and as long as you only have 2 sets of inputs active at one time, you can achieve pretty decent transfer speeds.

    The tendency of the power plug popping out can be a show stopper but otherwise, an excellent product Satechi needs to replace the anemic (too short, too small, no locking capability) smooth bore power jack with a tactile, positive lock audio jack type connector.
    This would cost nothing in manufacturing and make this a 5 star product.
    Though it would void a warranty, I would recommend techie's replace this with a $1 Radio Shack audio jack type connector before using it in the field. Data corruption, halted copying operations, media corruption and worse, long hours of drive imaging could be lost all for this one poor choice of power connectors.

    To long for this review box but if interested, I can email (Word format) the lengthy tests that I put this hub through. As with any port extender, File transfers from the host to a USB device should be done directly; avoid doing device-to-device transfers especially when a large number of small files (as in workstation data file backups) are to be done. This is especially true if doing USB imaging.

    Its a keeper! I am very pleased with this USB 3.0 Hub. It has plenty of USB 3.0 ports(backwards compatable). It works like a charm. No more plugging and unplugging of USB devices because there are a lot on this hub. Being able to use the 3 switches to toggle USB banks ON and OFF is a really nice feature. You can keep USB devices you are not using turned off. Everyone will like this USB hub. Its good quality. I have several other Satechi products and all of them are excellent.

    Excellent product, just one caveat I very much like the USB hub. It is indeed attractive and the capacity to turn sets of ports on and off independently is very useful. The only caveat is that the power connection does not go in deeply enough and one has to be very careful not to bump it as it can come off too easily. That costs it the one star.

    Solid Product I have several usb devices:
    - 2 printers - black laser, colour inkjet
    - Scanner for digital images
    - mouse
    - keyboard
    - 2 usb external hard drive for backups
    - video camera
    - digital camera cable
    - cell phone charging cable
    - Magic Jack Phone USB
    - USB audio headset
    My system has 2 front USB ports and 4 back. I was previously using 2x 4 port usb hubs to connect u pmy devices and was still running out of ports. These each required power adaptors, and needed a port on the main system for each of the 4 port hubs. It was messy and less than ideal.
    I decided it was time to get a better USB switch. I wanted USB3, power, and more ports the merrier. The Satachi 10 port usb hub had done the trick. Ordered it, and ti was delivered 4 weeks later. It is now installed and after 2 weeks it is working beautifully. I now have sufficent ports and am able to organize the devices better. There is the added benefit of having 3 sets of 3 separately powered set of USB ports. I have not used this yet but I can see myself using this to power off usb devices I am not using to save some electricity.
    Glad to have this new addition to my office setup.
    Thanks.

    Highly recommended. Unit has a total of 10 - yes ten! buffered ports, more than enough I would think to satisfy all of your external USB device needs. Product worked right out of the box.
    No other USB hubs have these terrific specs. Don't be fooled by cheap imitations. While you might think this is a bit expensive, consider what you are getting - you will NOT be disappointed. This is precisely the product I was looking for. Gleaming blue LED's a really nice aesthetic but you can turn OFF what you're not using on the 3 times 3 top ports. Then you have the very accessible Front port. Really like that connection cables all go to back of unit for nice uncluttered appearance.

    10 ports of luxury It's a great product. Out of the box I was very impressed with its design and how well it sits and glows on the desk.

    8/10 overall. I am never impressed with the USB to Hub conncetion which is the same as those used for USB to portable HDD, they are small, thin and appear flimsyt and easily snapped. I will have to be gentle with it for sure.

    I look forward to setting up all my devices on it though and have high hopes that it will be the best new addition to my workspace!

    Will reccomend to friends :) Thanks Satechi!

    Great for device organization It's pretty much what I expected, which is good. I'm using a MacBook Pro 2012 non-retina and this hub plays nice with all of my USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices, power and switches/lights all work, etc. It even maintains fast transfer speeds on some of my faster USB 3.0 devices like my Lexar Professional CF card reader - no difference in transfer speed between the Satechi hub and plugging directly into the computer. It looks pretty nice, too. The switches make it easy for me to organize different types of devices - I use my display hub and slower USB 2.0 devices on the first switch, high speed devices like the card reader and thumb drives on the second and backup/time machine drives on the third. If I don't need a device, I just leave the switch off - handy for devices that power on automatically when connected to a powered hub and don't have dedicated power switches. I haven't tested the charge speed of the dedicated tablet charging port (I don't have an iPad), but it charges my iPhone just fine. The hub is fairly lightweight, but has enough mass to stand up on my desk without needing the velcro tape.

    Overall this is a really useful product and I recommend it for people who have a lot of peripherals, especially faster USB 3.0 devices - if you have only USB 2.0 devices, you can get the same sort of thing for a lot cheaper.

    I'm taking a star off for the price - I don't have a problem paying for quality, but it's still a little expensive. Maybe something like $40 would've been more palatable. I'm in Canada, so the cross-border shipping inflated the price even more. But hey, I bought it and it works great, so no complaints otherwise.

    Does it all Been through a number of cheaply made hubs that aren't as full featured as this one. With repeated use they always seem to wear out/fall apart. This is a great design and appears well built. I'd like it better if it was in a metal housing - but perhaps that would be cost prohibitive. In terms of function, this is first class.

    Data ports a flawless, flaky charging port I have a 2012 MacBook Pro with Retina Display. It has a measly two USB 3.0 ports. I had been waiting for a reliable USB 3.0 hub with a lot of ports (seven or more). Other USB 3.0 hubs had mixed reviews, but the Satechi 10-port hub garnered mostly positive reviews, and that was enough for me to pull the trigger and order it.

    First, the pros.

    I like the power strip-like design. It allows for USB devices and cables to be connected with minimal entanglement. The three power switches for the nine data ports are a nice touch, although I do not have a use case that would necessitate a set of ports being powered off.

    Currently, I have six ports occupied: Two external USB 3.0 hard drives, a printer, an Apple Cinema Display (to power its own three USB 2.0 ports), and a mechanical keyboard, which requires two ports, one of which is for the keyboard’s two USB 2.0 ports.

    I was initially concerned I might run into issues with the USB 3.0 drives connected via the hub, as reviews for other hubs indicated issues with disconnections and sleep. My drives perform flawlessly with this hub. They are recognized at 5 Gb/s, and I get transfer rates at about 130 MB/s. I do not experience disconnects, and sleep is normal (the OS puts them to sleep and wakes them appropriately).

    My other devices, including three devices connected to my monitor daisy-chained to the hub, function normally.

    Now, the cons.

    I have my 3rd generation iPad connected to the charge-only side port (2.1A). The charging frequently stops, at which point I have to disconnect and reconnect the 30-pin iPad connector (or power cycle the iPad). I know the charging stops because the battery indicator on the iPad changes to “Not Charging.” I do not have this issue when charging with the same cable and AC wall adapter, or when connected to the MacBook or monitor (1A), so the problem is the charging port on the hub. Satechi support was very responsive and quickly sent me a replacement, but I have the same issue with the replacement hub. It is not a deal-breaker, but it was one feature that drew me to this particular hub.

    Another con is that the hub is fairly lightweight and could be heavier for a more solid feel. Having a lot of devices and cables connected can cause the hub not to stay in place. A Velcro strip is included, but I would prefer a hub with some heft.

    All in all, despite the deficiencies, I would recommend the hub.

    Excellent Product - A Must have This nifty play and play gadget has been actually helped me in eliminating cables! My tower sits inside a computer desk and it has four USB ports in the back and one 3.0 in the front. I had to purchase USB extenders in order to have my speakers, printer, video camera, wireless mouse & keyboard, external hard drive, iPad 1G, iPhone 5, etc., all be able to sit on top of the desk since the cables were too short to reach. Oh did I mention I also had a 4-port hub in there somewhere too. The Satechi 10-port USB has been the answer to the mess of computers USB cords running every which way!

    The idea of making the Satechi 10-port USB Hub resemble a small power bar makes it easier to follow what gadget the cable "belongs" to. The cable is not twisted and looped around other cables. Another great benefit is when the USB is in the use, the LED light underneath will be lit letting you know it is in use. This is great so if something is not working correctly you can tell if it has become lose or unplugged.

    The iPad charging port is awesome to say the least. Since I was previously using the front 3.0 USB port on my tower to charge and sync my iPhone 5 and iPad 1G, it was a pain always changing charging cables since it takes a 30 pin and the lightning fast cable. I use the Satechi's 2.1A charging port to charge and sync my iPad now.

    My home computer is now less cluttered and I have more space available since the bar sits nicely in the corner of my desk.

    I highly recommend this for the person how has everything that connects, charges and syncs via USB.

    Let's get connected Test devices:
    Kindle Fire HD 7"
    Google Nexus 7
    ASUS Transformer (TF101)
    Cruicial M4 256GB SSD w/SIIG SuperSpeed USB 3.0 enclosure

    "A hub is a hub," is how I've generally looked at such items. They work, or they don't, not much else to them. Satechi seems to have gone out of their way to change that idea. First off, this is probably one of the best looking hubs I've come across. Gloss black with blue back lighting around the port sections, switched banks, and a special charge port that should provide 2.1A of power instead of the standard .5A (USB 2.0) and .9A (USB 3.0, charge+data). Fairly nifty stuff, but how well does it work?

    The first thing I tried out was the that special charging port. To be frank, at first glance, I was disappointed. Across each device, there was barely any noticeable difference in the charge rate. And what difference there was, was in favor of the other nine ports. But, but, but, how could that be? Each of them has a wall charger that exceeds the theoretical .9A output of a standard ports, usually by double (e.g. Kindle Fire charger is 1.8A output). Stupid thing doesn't work like it claims, right? "Not so fast," I told myself. Running back through the same tests with the wall chargers, what I found was that every port on the hub was able to charge my devices at the same rate as their wall chargers. I certainly can't complain about that, so no stars taken off.

    Next up, data transfer speeds were tested. I linked up the Cruicial SSD and set to measuring. Compared to my USB 2.0 hub, the Satechi was substantially faster, which was to be expected. To see how far I could push it, I added four more Crucials and started running data not only back and forth between them and the PC, but also between each other. Pushing 1.5GB files around has not been quicker. The average speed barely changed, and could be simply margin of error. The hub itself held up to this treatment for over 24 hours before I left it rest for a while.

    Final thoughts: I haven't quite figured out what I would use the switches for, but, I could see how they might come in handy in come applications, such as changing from one set of drives to another for backups or the like. At its current price, the Satechi brings more to the table, if nothing more than by having three extra ports. At this point, I can't see why one would be disappointed in purchasing one of these, unless of course they would prefer to have the lights off but the ports active.
