HooToo USB 3.0 HUB Expands the USB Ports on My Computer


I have been avoiding USB Hubs after a bad experience with one a few years ago. I woke up in the middle of the night to a burning smell. I found the USB 1.0 HUB that was connected to my laptop with 3 other connected devices fried. Since the circuit inside the hub had burned, all the devices that were connected became inoperable. Currently with all the advancement in technology, USB HUBS have gotten better and more reliable. I had the pleasure of reviewing the HooToo HT-UH010 7-Port USB 3.0 HUB with 2 Smart Charging Ports and I love it. It is a great product with a very attractive design.

It has a rubber like material on the sides and bottom for a better grip, and shiny material on top. The power adapter and the USB 3 cable connecter are conveniently placed on the rear short end of this narrow rectangular shaped device. This together with the length of the cables (Power adaptor 5 feet, USB 3 32") makes it easy to conceal everything behind your desk. The HT-UH010 has 7 USB 3 ports, 2 of these ports are Smart charging ports. The Smart charging ports can be used to charge tablets, phones, and other devices directly from the power adaptor instead of borrowing power from the computers USB port. The other remaining 5 ports are for data transfer. 

Remember your computer has to have USB 3 to take advantage of the faster speeds that can be gained with this HUB. Older computers can still use this hub, but it will be at a slower speed. So far, I have tried the data transfer speeds on a USB 3 Flash drive and a USB Hard drive, and found the transfer speeds to be very fast. Connecting a multitude of devices to one HUB can take a toll on the power consumption. Using this HooToo device will solve this, as it has a 60W adapter. 
This little device has been very handy for us because all my USB ports are at the back of the computer, which is sometimes hard to reach. Having the HooToo HT-UH010 connected to my computer, I find the USB ports are at my arms reach. If you are looking to expand your computer’s USB ports I would recommend looking into the HooToo HT-UH010 7-Port USB 3.0 HUB.
