Sabrent Premium 4-Port Aluminum USB Hub Review!

Sabrent Premium 4-Port Aluminum USB Hub Review!

Add extra ports, a little jazz, or geekyness to your room of choice by purchasing this product via Amazon US for about $17 ($16.99) and viaAmazon UK for about 20 Pounds (19.99). And special thanks to our friends at Sabrent for sending this out to review.

Before I dive into the review I want to step back and take a closer look the packaging. Personally, I found that removing the product from the packaging was a real struggle. I never liked plastic packaging and I understand that it may cheaper than high-grade packaging but it only cause myself, and maybe others, the precision time to remove it. If they could improve the packaging then it would also improve the customers customer experience. It’s a con but could be improved.

Enough with the packaging on onto the train toward the design. Like I mention earlier, it’s made out of aluminum which would look beautiful with your Apple products, such as; the iMac, Macbook, Mac Mini, or even a silver-colored PC. Sabrent took the time to give you a product that would be able to be presented on your desk for everyone to see even if you’re running Windows XP, Vista, 7/8, or Mac OS X.

The only disappoint that I had for user connectivity would be that it’s supporting USB 2.0 and not USB 3.0. I’m reviewing many USB hubs that support this connection but this is the first one that don’t. The price may be affected if it did but really would be a benefit since many new computers are being upgraded to USB 3.0. Otherwise, it’s fine for me since my computer is USB 2.0.

Their is little to no set up since all you have to do is plug the USB hub into your computer and it should automatically install. If not, they provide you with an installation disk to easily and quickly install the product.

Luckily, this is one of the few products that feature a shielded cable which gives you durability when moving it frequently. It even has the material of an Apple charging cable.

I believe that I hit all the points needed for a review that could recommend this product for you. Please do remember that the packaging is poor and it don’t feature USB 3.0 connectivity. Otherwise, it’s recommended as a great gift for others or even yourself. They did a fantastic job with the build quality throughout the entire product!
