Today we’re going to be checking out HooToo’s 7 port USB hub. This is for desktop. It also has 2 extra ports for charging, both with different voltages.
It is USB 3.0 with 5 GB/s data transfer speed. It accepts flash drives. It’s got dual charging ports. And one of the best features, it accepts external SATA hard drives. It won’t have any trouble reading them, especially with that fast USB 3.0 data transfer speed.
The packaging comes with the HooToo USB Hub itself, a 3 foot (1 metre) USB 3.0 cable along with the power brick and cable. It also comes with a Quick Start guide and a Warranty Card (the hub comes with 12 months warranty but if you fill out the Warranty Card and send it off they’ll give you an extra 6 months).
The hub itself looks quite elegant with its black finish and would fit nicely on any desk. It measures 5.7 x 1.7 x 0.9 inches or 145 x 43 x 23 in millimetres. It has a matte black finish on the sides and a glossy black finish on top. It has a good weight to it, and coupled with the rubber bottom it will not stay put on your desk and won’t slide around everywhere or accidentally get knocked off.
On one end you’ve got your USB for plugging it in to your computer, along with the power plug.
On top of the HooToo USB Hub you have your 7 USB 3.0 ports. These are all numbered 1-7 and each has its own LED to indicate when something is plugged in and using the connection. The ports are all USB 3.0 so none of the outdated USB 2.0 ports make an appearance. However, it is backwards compatible and will certainly support your USB 2.0/1.1 devices.
Also on the top you’ve got your two charging ports. One for 1-Amp out and the other for 2.1-Amp out. These charging ports are self-modulating as well so if you plug a 2-Amp product into the 2.1-Amp supply then that will modulate down to 2-Amps to suit your device. These charging ports are ideal for your mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops.
It is plug-n-play compatible, no drivers needed. So just plug it in and start using it!
This is a fantastic product that is ideal for anyone who wants to expand their desktop with more USB ports. And the charging ports are a very nice touch. We think this HooToo USB Hub is a great quality product and well worth its price tag.
