Ravi Varma Kalidindi says:

Nice review! Can I use this without power adapter? Or connecting it to power adapter is always mandatory. Charging the connected devices is not my criteria. While on the go, where I don’t have access to any power adapter, can I use this for transferring data from four pendrives or external portable hard disks? Will using it without power adapter affect the performance?

jazz deep says:

does it work on led tv as well ?????????????
Can it connect and play all ports in one time when it connected with single led tv usb port????

Wicky Libra says:

Hi GeekyRanjith: Can I use this hub to connect 3 multi-display adapters (Kensington) which in turn will connect to 3 LG 23″ monitors through VGA?

Bala Subramanian says:

Awesome video sir. I have a usb 2.0 (all ports) powered laptop. But I also have a wd passport ultra drive which has a usb 3.0 connection. I am not interested about the speeds. I am just wondering if this hub would be able to produce optimal current so that I can get my wd hard drives running smoothly? I am just looking for that extra current (amps). Is it worth the purchase??

Somnath Das says:

If I connect it to my desktop will it burn the motherboard due to it is powered

vic87m says:

Ranjeet, thank you for yet another amazing video..
Can you do a trial for this; pls connect this powered USB hub to OTG supported phone.

I am facing a problem, I have Moto G (Indian version) and want to connect a 1TB WD my passport ultra and a Extreme SD card simultaneously.
I can connect a my 1TB WD my passport to OTG, but one at a time.. I guess this USB powered hub can solve my problem.

Can you please test it on a OTG and let me know the results..
Thanks in advance.

Vaibhav Chauhan says:

Hi Ranjit. Can this hub power my Acer iconia w4 820 windows tablet while in use. I want a way by which I can work on my tablet while it is charging and is connected with a external HDD and a USB wireless keyboard mouse of Logitech. Since Acer w4 tablet has only 1 micro USB port so cannot charge it and run add on USB devices simultaneously. What would you advise as a solution to this and if transcend can make this happen or some other USB hub device available in the market?

If I use it for charging phones then what will be outout Ampare rating?

Richard Frank says:

Hi, i purchased this nearly 3 years ago and i noticed this is the best review video so far however answering some of the late questions for the people:

It can work without the power adapter, however by doing that it will suffer a performance hit on the speed and transfers, it is not recommended to use devices that are power heavy if you re not using the power cord as it will start disconnecting them randomly, this is caused because the devices that use usb 3.0 are usually power-hungry and a single laptop port usually will not have the impedance in Ampers to supply multiple devices, if you use the power cord, everything will work smooth

If you dont use the power supply cord, expect a performance downgrade to usb 2.0 when you connect more than 2 devices

The voltaje of the power cord is 12Volts

The supercharger port Works really well and can work without the computer being turned on (but connected by the powercord, as a charging station

From the almost 3 years i ve had this device, it hasnt given me a single problem

Will work with any TV, monitor, cel pone and device that can work with usb 3.0

USB 2.0 devices will still work, but will be capped at 30mb/s

USB Hard drives work well on this, at some point i had connected 4 at the same time, provided you are using the power cord, otherwise they will be slow or will get a random disconnect.

Having to use a power cord is not a design flaw, its more because the amplitude of devices that require high power that requires the extra omph to work well, this is limited by the power draw of the computer usb port itself, newer computers have much more impedance Amperage to offset, but its still an issue for most usb 3 devices even by today

hope this had helped
