This is where the Anker Uspeed USB 3.0 7-Port Hub comes in, this is an external USB hub that you plug into one of your USB 3.0 ports and it has 7 ports all with lights on top to indicate when a USB device is plugged in and in use.
The hub works flawlessly and I tested it with various devices, the most important test was to confirm that I can get USB 3.0 speeds from all 7 ports.
That Kingston HyperX 64GB Flash Drive you see in the 7th port was swapped between all 7 ports one at a time while I transferred Minecraft .wmv files that my son makes to see how fast they would transfer.
I saw no degradation in speed performance between using the PC’s own USB 3.0 port or the Anker Uspeed 3.0 7-Port Hub USB port. I was still able to get the expected 230+ MB/s read rates from the drive and the expected write rates as well.
Bottom line, if you need to increase the number of USB ports on your computer or especially your laptop where you typically only have 2 USB ports then the Anker Uspeed 3.0 7-Port Hub is the device for you.
At $49.99 this product is definitely worth the price in my opinion and it replaced my older 4 port USB hub by Belkin that wasn’t even USB 3.0 compatible.
