Connect up to four USB 3.0, 2.0, or 1.1 devices to a single port on any computer. Attractive piano black, solid feeling, compact design with 4 green LEDs (one per USB port) for diagnosing connectivity.
Featuring the VIA VL811+ USB 3.0 hub chipset updated to firmware version 9084 for maximum compatibility with almost all USB 3.0 hosts. Supports Microsoft Windows 8.1 through XP, Mac OS X, and Linux kernels 3.0 and later. Apple SuperDrive not compatible. Older Mac Pros with USB 3.0 PCI Express add-on cards do not work with this or any USB 3.0 hub. Full forward and backward compatibility between USB 3.0, 2.0, and 1.1 hosts and devices. Not recommended for use with older Texas Instruments, Fresco Logic, Etron, or Wistron USB 3.0 host controllers. Requires no driver installation (although individual devices may require drivers). 2.4Ghz wireless devices such as wireless keyboard/mouse receivers, Bluetooth and WiFi adapters, may not work in close proximity to USB 3.0 devices or hubs. Connecting wireless devices to a USB 2.0 port is recommended for best results.
Power and Charging
Comes with premium 12V 4A 48W power supply for supporting several devices requiring USB 3.0's more demanding 900mA per port power. When the hub is not in use for data (not connected to a host computer, shutdown or in hibernate/sleep mode), all four ports simulate charging signals for common chargers, including Apple 1A, Apple 2.1A, Samsung 2.4A, and all those that are BC 1.2 compliant.
In The Box
USB 3.0 7-port Hub (VIA Hub Controller), 5V 4A UL certified AC desktop-style power adapter with 6+ foot hub to wall extension cord and 3 foot USB 3.0 Cable.
