Failed Fakespot the the company has a shit rating as well.

$10 is also pretty standard for a 3/4 port hub(example) on sale.

Here’s the same thing on Amazon for $9: Sabrent 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Individual LED Power Switches (HB-UM43) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JX1ZS5O

u/Shojikoto · 5 pointsr/xboxone


This one has worked great for me. I've got two external HDDs connected (one USB powered and one dedicated power), my headset (3rd gen Astro A50, USB powered), and sometimes plug a flash drive in to upload photos for backgrounds.... Good speeds since it's USB3.0... I like that it's hot swappable too, because I can disconnect/reconnect my headphones anytime they have an issue by pressing the button rather than pulling the cable.

u/BradenFontaine · 5 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I run the Define S which has no drive bay, my cable for the external CD drive was too short so i purchased this hub and am ashamed of how long it took me to figure out the connection.

u/csreid · 5 pointsr/neoliberal

I really really really want a USB-C hub that just has 5 USB C inputs and 1 USB C output. Like this but USB C. I can't find anything because everything is just a dock for a macbook :/

u/coach_tjones · 3 pointsr/Roku

So, I have it figured out, mostly.

I had my flash drive (incorrectly calling it a usb stick) plugged into an unpowered usb hub (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JX1ZS5O/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1) because I also have a Chromecast attached to the tv, powered by the TV's usb port via the hub.

The hub specs say to not have a combined load of over 900ma for stable connections. From what I can tell, the Chromecast draws between 250-420ma depending on idle/use. I can't figure out what the flash drive uses, but somehow both devices being connected to the hub is causing the issue. When I plug the flash drive directly into the TV, everything works like it's supposed to. For note purposes, the 4k TCL TV I have lists itself as being able to provide 1500ma from the usb port. The flash drive is usb 2.0 and the unpowered hub is usb 3.0.

Next step is to try a powered usb hub and see if that fixes everything.

Here is the Roku info on the usb port and hubs, etc. https://support.roku.com/article/230160368-why-does-my-roku-streaming-device-not-recognize-my-external-usb-drive-

u/PandahOG · 3 pointsr/oculus

Its an USB issue. I know, you have probably tried different usb ports ranging from 2.0 to 3.0. You would switch it and it would work just fine for a few days then you are back to reseating the hdmi plug.

There are 2 solutions:

  1. Buy this and install it into your machine.

  2. Be cheap and buy this

    Now option 2 should not work but it does. I had the same exact problem as you. I tried everything and it got to the point the only other option was buying a usb 3.0 pci e card. However, I had option 2 laying around and realized I needed more usb 3.0 ports for my other stuff so I figured why not try my rift. Its been 3 months and I havent had to reseat the hdmi cord or try different usb ports.

    Only issues i have now is what looks like white static whenever it is dark in the game or loading something, but it is all gone when the game starts. Also, sound. My rift sound will cut off after 30 minutes of playing so I have to re-enable it via sound manager.

    Hope this helps because I know how frustrating it was.
u/broken_radio · 3 pointsr/cordcutters

Sure np, there is a $60 tuner available for XBOX One. I picked up a 50-mile Clearstream Eclipse antenna, connected it directly to the tuner, then the tuner plugs into an open USB port on the back of your XONE. If you're like me I already had a port devoted to my Kinect, and another to a 3TB drive so this filled up all my ports (you can buy a hub for relatively cheap that takes care of this problem). Anyway...once you plug everything in the XBOX will recognize your new device and ask if you would like to scan for channels, it also asks for your zip code for the on-screen OTA channel guide that looks quite similar to most cable companies. Finally, it asks if you would like to devote 4 gigs of your HD space to the 30-minute pause function. Very easy to set-up, everything plays right through the XBOX OneGuide app.

Edit: Use this website to see how many free OTA channels you have in your area, as well as how far they are away from you...this will help determine the strength of the antenna you need to buy. https://www.fcc.gov/media/engineering/dtvmaps

u/LitePenguins · 3 pointsr/Surface

I use this one, it works very well for me.

u/NHGuy · 2 pointsr/Harley

This happens to me on a regular basis. And it's a known problem, as someone else has said.

To fix the issue of the moment, you have a few options, all sort of boil down to the same thing:

  1. Shut off the bike and restart
  2. Pull the USB and reinsert
  3. Use a small USB hub and disconnect the USB and reconnect via switch on the hub.

    For a hub, I use this one so all I have to do is flip open my dash compartment and toggle the switch for the USB to disconnect/reconnect it. I also have a couple other drives with a ton of a variety of music on them.

    Also - with the hub you need to use a low profile USB drive. I use SanDisk Cruzer Fit. Currently 32GB for $12, $18 for 64GB
u/scotchy180 · 2 pointsr/Vive

In case this helps...

I use this for my dongles. I would guess you could run this through a wall with a usb extension cable. The only problem I could see you running into might be power degradation if the cable is really long. I guess you'd need to try it to know for sure.


u/Bradleyw801 · 2 pointsr/ShieldAndroidTV

Instead of that, I would go with a hub like this. A hub should work fine on the Shield and as long as it's usb 3.0 there should be no discernable difference. A hub is basically just an extension cord. It's not doing any data transfer itself.


u/TenebrousP · 2 pointsr/Vive

Same issue. I picked up this small USB hub with power switches from Amazon to solve it:


u/LePornAddict · 2 pointsr/MouseReview

Plug both in. It wouldn't matter unless you move it. If you really want to switch one off for whatever reason, you can always get a usb hub with switches for this.

u/daniel1z · 2 pointsr/Romania

Gandim la fel, mi l-am comandat pe asta acum cateva zile, trebuie sa ajunga luni.

u/aesens · 2 pointsr/simracing

I have the Sabrent 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Individual LED Power Switches ($6 on Amazon using code 360OFFUM43) that I discovered from this post over on /r/buildapcsales. I have the two Rift sensors connected to it, but I have my headset connected to my Clevo's HDMI port and one of it's four USB 3.0 ports. When my wheel (T300RS GT), shifter (TH8A), and wireless mouse dongle are connected to the laptop USB ports, that leaves one open port on the hub for my cell phone charging cable, and of course when I'm using the wheel, I don't use the game controller, so I keep that switched off.

My laptop also has a USB type-C USB 3.1/Thunderbolt combo port, and I was going to get a hub that connects via Thunderbolt with 4 USB 3.1 ports @ 10gbps (around $40), but I couldn't pass up on that $6 deal, and it works perfectly fine for all that I use it for.

Regarding the better battery life on the touch controllers - I imagine it would save on battery life if you switch off the sensor ports on the hub when not in use.

u/NewPath57 · 2 pointsr/EliteDangerous

Stuff like this happening is the reason I picked up a couple of USB hubs with individual switches. Any time something doesn't work right I can reset it, or turn off other controllers to trouble shoot it nice and easy.

u/3wooki3 · 2 pointsr/RetroPie

I haven't used it but this might help:



You might be able to hack together a hardware solution with something like this:

u/OneTrueAsian · 2 pointsr/AskTechnology

I use this one, it has switches so I can turn the ones I want on and the others off. I haven’t had any issues. Really good reviews.

u/tboland1 · 2 pointsr/techsupport

A splitter isn't what you want. You want a USB Hub. No sense at all getting a USB 2 hub. If you are going to be using heavy duty stuff (multiple hard drives, for instance) or want to charge things at fast charge rate, get a powered hub.

u/nickmo9 · 2 pointsr/DataHoarder

Ok so I think I'm narrowing some things down. Per /u/Doc_E_Makura I ran CrystalDiskInfo on each drive and they read as good with no abnormalities.

I then ran the Windows disk error check as described and also found no errors (well, the new drive did have errors from the bad files copied over from the previous attempts, but I formatted and it is error free now).

I then opened the MiniTool Partition Wizard and started to try and figure out the method for imaging the drive over. I noticed that it kept every few seconds popping up a dialogue box saying something to the effect of "updating partition drives" (can't remember exact phrase). But it was happening so frequently I got the impression of a bad connection in some sense.

I then opened an explorer window just to see if I could open the drives, and I started getting an error of "Power surge on the USB port. Unknown USB Device needs more power than the port can supply." This error popped up multiple times then the drives disappeared. This surface pro only has one USB port, so I bought this USB adapter which was only $10. Could this be causing the issues? If so, what's the best alternative for a higher quality USB adapter that can power two external HDs?

The USB power surge error disabled the USB port, and the drives wouldn't show up after when plugging them in individually until I restarted.

Thanks so far for the advice, hopefully I can get this figured out.

This will do the trick. Actually, it's sort of overkill. But it'll work

u/CrazyCoco · 2 pointsr/PUBATTLEGROUNDS

Wow okay, so the problem is this USB port extender.

If my headset cable is connected to that and I plug it into my PC, I get the massive stuttering seen above UNTIL I turn off my PC. I'm going to try to see if anything plugged in there wrecks my PC, or if it is just the headset cable.

u/qwrdu · 2 pointsr/buildapc

How would you vocalise the difference between this and this? Would you say the latter is a hub with the capabilities with a switch?

Edit: The second item calls itself a "Switcher Box Hub" to state the difference.

Glad yours works! OP should be careful, though. I have this one and it doesn't seem to work :(. C'est la vie! I did pick up an Amazon Basics USB3.0 extender (3 meter) and will be testing that with my Touch sensor when it arrives later today. /fingerscrossed

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JX1ZS5O?keywords=usb%203%20hub&qid=1458269613&ref_=sr_1_3&sr=8-3 Would something like this work. I have enough usb 3.0 and 2.0 ports for everything but just curious if a normal hub would work.

u/sodakas · 1 pointr/teslamotors

Sorry for the late reply - I ordered Left/Right, though I think Up/Up might've been better. In any event, I just recycled a small USB hub I had lying around (http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JX1ZS5O), and it worked just fine for both power and storage. I figure I would have to use a hub at some point, since the DVR memory supposedly requires that you connect it directly to the port. I... personally don't see why this is required from a technical point of view, so I can only presume it must be a disclaimer, since they don't want to get in the business of certifying extension cords and hubs.

I hope they announce some details about the memory capacity requirements for the DVR, as that would help me pick out what type of memory to purchase -- in the meantime, I'll just throw a 128GB on it for now and see how far that gets me... Uhh, once I get v9, of course. :)

u/Essobie · 1 pointr/teslamotors

This one is great, inexpensive, and can be easily attached to the back "wall" of the center console below the two main USB ports with some double stick velcro: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JX1ZS5O

I've used it for charging 2 phones, a 128GB TeslaCam/SentryCam drive, and a 64GB Music USB Drive for about 2 months now, with zero issues.

u/CloneClasher · 1 pointr/macsetups

I'm in high school as well and I'm planning to do something like this but I don't want to buy stuff I don't necessary need. Basically the idea to have the Mac on a stand while next to the monitor (which is on a stand as well) is connected to it. There are also speakers, and I'll be using an old keyboard that I have (usb) as well as a bluetooth mouse.

So far this is what I'm thinking:

Laptop stand: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000OOYECC/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

HDMI Cable: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B014I8SIJY/ref=ox_sc_act_title_5?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Thunderbolt to HDMI Adapter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DRK2ZIK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_6?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A1AMUYYA3CT6HJ

And finally, the monitor: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IA9FXAO/ref=ox_sc_act_title_7?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

I haven't decided nor found a good stand for the monitor so if anyone can help that'd be great. Also, anybody else can comment, I was just seeing if this was buying too much or is there an easier way. I have a nrMBP mid 2012 13'' for reference.

u/slipjack · 1 pointr/PlaystationClassic

Sandisk Ultra Fit 64gb (model: SDCZ430-064G-A46) works.

Seems like a waste of $30 to me when a $13 hub gets the job done.
u/qchto · 1 pointr/linux_gaming

Tbh I haven't notice as I rarely suspend this machine, but there has been some (very rare) cases when the keyboard simply lights on white and stop responding. That said, no matter the issue, no one persist after disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard (as long as ckb is running in the background).

It may sound like I'm trivializing this action, but honestly, having my kb connected to one of these helps a lot.

u/lumpiestspoon3 · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

This or this. Second one has individual power switches, I don't think you'll need those for KB/M. Both are $10.

I'd still have to switch the cable from the hub from connecting to my laptop dock, to my PC, right?

I've been using this one off Amazon. I like that it has the power switches for each plug and it's powered from the device. It's only got 4 ports so I'm not sure if that meets your need.

will the one you linked here work for exactly what i need? meaning i can plug it into my otg adapter, and it will automatically let me use my keyboard and mouse? cause i have usb ports already, but i dont think they allow for data charging, and they dont have a male port like this, they all have a wall outlet to plug into. just want to make sure if i plug this into the otg adapter and then plug a keyboard and mouse into it, it will work completely fine with my tablet. thank you. this says transfer speeds, but i dont know if that means data transfer. just clarifying before i buy, cause it doesnt specifically say data transfer.

My combination works for me.

Sabrent 4 port USB hub (for 2 player etc. plugging the flash drive in the console and the 2 controllers into the hub)

No power mod. Haven't torn apart my classic.

Formatted to and installed just like the steps require you to. Fat32 etc. using either BleemSync or AutoBleem. Both tested and worked for me but I use AutoBleem.


Flash drive doesn't get hot.

u/therealt00lz · 1 pointr/RetroPie

I use a cheap hub with buttons to turn on and off the ports. Then I can plug in and disable any others (arcade buttons) not needed.

If you get creative with the order of the controllers in the hub you can just change out player 1 or even player 2

This one is pretty hackable, and you can extent ports to your case if you have room inside

I got a Nomad and I love it. The Nomad pad was extremely grippy and my iPhone X does not slide no matter how fast I go around corners.

I’m not sure if they updated this in the new version, but the original version needed to use both front USB ports in order to turn on (which blocks you from using the new v9 dashcam feature). If you want to use the built in dashcam feature, you might have to get something like get this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JX1ZS5O/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_l232n94kEzJ9E

u/bosslickspittle · 1 pointr/WindowsMR

I'm in the same situation. I bought this one which doesn't really extend the cable by much (like 4 inches maybe), so it doesn't even leave the desk. Actually it doesn't even reach the desk from the USB port, it just hangs there awkwardly.

But it sounds like you fixed the issue a different way, so it shouldn't matter much either way!

u/Arrhythmix · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

It also depends if you intend to charge things off of it, you would need an external power source as well. But if you only plan to use it for file transfers, or data retrieval, any non-external power source ones would be fine. If you don't need more than 1.5amps (to only to charge one phone/tablet and for usb devices or usb drives) something like this would be ideal. But if you need 1.5amp+ (let's say you need to charge your phone and a tablet which would require let's say 4 amps or 2 per each device) you would need something like [this] (https://www.amazon.com/iXCC-Transfer-Charging-Individual-Switches/dp/B01IIPCC0O/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1486361331&sr=8-5&keywords=powered+usb+3.0+hub) would be ideal.

I use this 4-port USB hub to plug in two 4-port GameCube adapters and it works fine. The Switch is missing some basic drivers, but all my USB hubs work great.

8-player Smash is chaotic garbage in my opinion, but it's definitely doable.

I would go for something like This because if you plan on running all of those off the one hub you will need external power.

Or you can plug in your drawing tablet into the pc and get something cheaper and pc powered like This one

There isn't one.

The only way to disable them is to unplug them, because if you disable them on the Device Manager you'll need to restart Windows for them to get recognized again.

I have 2 Dualshock 2, a Hori EDGE 301 (Xinput controller) a Dualshock 3, a Dualshock 4 and a G27 Driving Wheel and I just use a USB Hub with power switches to enable the ones I want/need, like this one: www.amazon.com//dp/B00JX1ZS5O

There's some with more ports as well. If you have them connected wireless then it's even easier since most of them have some button combination to turn them off.

Sabrent 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Individual Power Switches and LEDs (HB-UM43) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JX1ZS5O/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_AiZJybGV1CT9M. Shame to have all that hardware and not want to spend an extra $15 + flirc for it to function
