If you need a USB 2.0 hub then this is it.
17 June 2017
I was a bit hesitant to buy this product as the rating was average and there were no good reviews. My CPU's front port were not working and I was too lazy to plug the usb on back side everytime. Anyway, I decided to order the product out of need. Seeing the sellers' rating I ordered it from Fitnesgalaxy.
Product arrived. I tested it extensively. Results are out. I am glad that I have ordered it.
The body is completely made of plastic. This has 4 USB ports and there is no provision of input for power supply in case of extra load. Length of wire is 1 m. USB ports seems smaller but fit very well. I tested the product and following are results:
Tested with :
Lexar JumpDrive S25 USB 3.0 32GB High Speed Pen Drive
SanDisk Ultra CZ48 16GB USB 3.0 Pen Drive
SanDisk Cruzer Blade 4GB USB 2.0 Pen Drive
Transcend StoreJet 25M3 2.5-inch 1TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive
BuyBox® 7.1 Channel USB External Sound Card Audio Adapter With Mic + UBON CP-008 CONCH Multimedia USB Laptop Mobile Speakers high Bass Treble
Microsoft Wireless Desktop 800 Keyboard and Mouse Set (reciever used)
Configurations tested : 3 Pendrives + harddisk, 3 Pendrives + receiver, receiver + sound card + speaker power + pendrive ,etc. All worked well.
All 4 ports can be used at same time.
My laptop has USB 2.0 ports and I have seen speed up-to 27 MBps.
Here are results when pendrive was directly plugged into computer's port vs when it was plugged in hub.
Lexar JumpDrive S25 USB 3.0 32GB High Speed Pen Drive :
Direct - 25.6 MBps
On Hub - 18.5 MBps
SanDisk Ultra CZ48 16GB USB 3.0 Pen Drive :
Direct - 25.2 MBps
On Hub - 18.4 MBps
Transcend StoreJet 25M3 2.5-inch 1TB USB 3.0 Portable External Hard Drive :
Direct - 23.7 MBps
On Hub - 18.0 MBps
SanDisk Cruzer Blade 4GB USB 2.0 Pen Drive :
Direct - 4.1 MBps
On Hub - 4.1 MBps
Copied into all devices simultaneously, net speed = 18 MBps
Images are attached to let you have some idea about space between ports. When Lexar (green) and Sandisk usb 3.0 (black diagonal) are placed adjacently they touch each other though. Just a minor issue.
If your computer has USB 3.0/3.1 ports then buy a USB 3.0 hub. As it is clear that maximum speed I am able to get out of this port is ~19 MBps. It gives about 70% of speed which my port is capable of. I consider it good for this price. If you too have a USB 2.0 ports in your computer like me, then go for it.
