Sharing is caring - so now you can be caring when out and about with your laptop. As USB 3.0 has finally become the defacto socket on modern laptops and ultrabooks, a 4-Port USB Hub at USB 3.0 speeds will always come in handy.
As laptops have become thinner and thinner, the downside has been the omission of optical drives, and more importantly, multiple USB sockets. But with this quality passive USB 3.0 hub, you can expand one socket out to four for all your peripherals including memory sticks and input devices.
Total speed is limited to the capability of your individual computer system, but this should be plenty for fast file transfers between devices. No drivers needed for Windows and Mac. Compatible with Windows 8 Tablets and Surface Pro Supports plug-and-play hot-swapping. Just remember that while there's plenty of transfer speed to go around, all connected devices will be sharing the one USB power connection from the source port - so don't expect to daisy-chain a bunch of hard drives off your hub ;-)
Features & Specifications
Please note: Because a single USB port is being used to power any devices connected to this USB Hub, you may not be able to run mutiple high power USB devices together (like several external HDDs, Optical Drives or USB powered printers & scanners simultaneously). Such devices may require the full power provided by a dedicated USB port to operate correctly.
