Excellent quality. Data transfer speed slows down,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inateck USB 3.0 4-Port Hub with Bus-Powered for Laptops, Ultrabooks and Tablet PCs, Backward Compatible with USB 2.0 & Support Windows 8/ 7/ Vista/ XP, Mac OS X 10.8.4, Black [1ft USB 3.0 Cable] (Electronics)
It is a tiny usb 4-port hub that is of solid quality. Made of quality plastic, having a quality cable. A disadvantage is that Data transfer speed through hub is considerably slower than connecting a device directly to the usb slot. In particular the transfer speed while transferring data from my USB 3.0 corsair 32 GB flash drive were 20% slower, while transferring data from my 1 TB usb 3.0 external hard drive were 40% - 60% slower depending on the type and size of files transferred. This slowdown happened despite the fact that there was only one device connected at the time. Maybe the slowdown is due to the fact that the hub has a microprocessor that controls the flow of data, but frankly this is only a guess. In any case, this may well be the case with other hubs as well, I did not have the opportunity to compare. The hub also works flawlessly even while connected in a USB 2.0 port, but transfer speed slows down at the third of the speed compared to that while being connected in USB 3.0 port. Apart from that, this hub is an excellent purchase and I strongly recommend the product.

These are the numbers based on the actual tests I made. What is the benefit to present false data? I bought the product. Your critique does not make sense unless you want to post your own findings based on your tests on the same product. Are you a 'company dealer' or something?

This is a fair point to make. In experimental work, it is of the utmost importance to specify test conditions, equipment etc. so that others may validate the experiments.
