ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:
This comes with the USB hub and a USB adapter (see attached picture #1). Just to be clear, it does not include your inputs, such as SD cards, a USB cord to connect your device, etc.
I was looking for a device that I could use to transfer files from an SD card to my computer. I also wanted to connect various USB 3.0 connection ports to my computer that this hub provides.
First, I'll talk about the SD card function. I have used the SD card reader on my computer as well as this hub. This hub transfers files much, much quicker than using the slot on my computer. I run game or trail cameras that store pictures to a card. There are times where I will have thousands of pictures to view on one card. There are often delays when scrolling through pictures using my SD card slot on my computer. However, this hub allows me to scroll through pictures very quickly.
USB 3.0 PORTS:
First, if you want to use these ports to their maximum potential, I would suggest obtaining some USB 3.0 cords if you don't already have them. You will know if they are USB 3.0 cords if the inside of the slot is blue. If it's not blue, you likely have version 2.0. For reference, USB 2.0 can transfer at speeds of 480 MB/second and charge devices at a rate of 100 milliamps. Comparatively, USB 3.0 can reach transfer speeds of 4.8 GB/second and charge at a rate of 900 milliamps. That's quite a difference, particularly if you use a USB outlet extensively.
I don't use the MS, Micro SD, TF, XXD slots on this hub much, but they are available should you ever need to.
I have used this hub quite often. I really like having multiple USB 3.0 outlets where I can connect all of my devices. I also like the SD card slot. Both operate very fast. There isn't any unintended disruptions while using it. It works as intended. I'm very pleased with this hub. Sometimes these electronics can seem daunting to understand. If you have a question or comment, please leave it below and I'll try to answer it for you.
