HooToo UT-UH009 10 Port USB 3.0 Hub Review!

HooToo UT-UH009 10 Port USB 3.0 Hub Review!

Add a new look to your computer setup by purchasing this product via Amazon US for about $45 ($44.99) with free shipping and via Amazon UK for about 35 Pounds (34.96) with free shipping. And special thanks to HooToo for sending this out to review. I will be honest with you before I dive into my review that I don’t have too much to say about the product besides my pros, cons, and conclusion. I will start with what you receive before the rest of the fun.

They provide you with everything you need to start right out the box. This includes the USB 3.0 hub itself, a USB 3.0 cable, AC Power Adapter, and User Manual.  A great USB Hub indeed but I find that I have to use the AC Power Adapter that was included. I understand the requirement but I rather not since it’s the same size of my laptop power adapter. I really like that their 7-Port USB Hub didn’t require this and was able to plug into my computer and function well.

Even though the AC Power Adapter is big, clunky, and required I find no real problem. I’m able to plug my external hard drive, blu-ray player/burner, Samsung Galaxy S4, Apple iPod touch 4G, Nokia Lumia 810, and USBs inside this one hub with no problems is incredible. Transferring data to and from those devices was smooth with no hassle. The power-sharing was equal but I still don’t recommend it for charging your tablets and phablets.

Taking a little closer look you can find that each USB hub has a LED and number to the right of it. This is great when monitoring it to see when a USB hub is in-use or/and active. At the very bottom you can find a power button that controls all the ports at once. I find that it was useful but don’t find myself using it a lot in the future. It’s useful but not really necessary.

If you read most of reviews then you know that I’m very picky when it comes to little things. Yes, this includes design, material usage, and anything else that makes the product different. In this case, I really love how HooToo placed their design in the front with a deep and rich contrast between blue and black. If we turn it over then you will find four small circle feet. It’s necessary since I find a wood desk and a glass table. They both are more expensive then this product so I’m very happy that HooToo has taken the time to place them there for user experience.

At the end of the day, week, month, or even year. HooToo has out-down the competition with this very product and we highly recommend purchasing it for a very nerdy gift.
