USB hubs are meaningful and useful as continue the fewest systems have USB 3.0 ports in mass. Especially notebooks lacks these often massive.
Here the mass of USB hubs can be basically divided into two distinct groups. The with and without power supply.
USB hubs without power supply are usually portable and saves clutter, but they have a clear an adverse: Your only one power source is the USB port of the connected computer and USB has to deliver only 900mAh power according to the specification.
Here you no expert must of course be to know that 900mAh divided into as 4 USB ports is very little, therefore usually larger hubs have the ability to connect a power supply.
Even so the 7 Port USB 3.0 Hub of Winten. This can certainly be in the category of “cheap” 7 divide Port Hub, € 29.99 are a very good price for a at first glance so good USB hub.
We begin as always with the packaging and delivery. The packaging does not fall on that this is an effective model. This is how it often in such “Amazon Accessories” products a beautiful and easy-to-open box in which largely dispenses with plastic.
In addition to the Hub, a fairly short USB 3.0 cable B, the power supply and a few flyers nothing was more in the box.
The power supply is a “Pinlei SW-120300” 12V 3A 36W power supply thus so are any USB port theoretically just over 1A Disposition. This is more than adequate 3.0 specification according USB.
Should you but now get the idea your smartphone at this hub to want to load, no, let’s better. Both Smartphones and Tablets load on USB ports (regardless of whether this is now a hub or directly on the PC) very slowly (in the normal case with only 0.5A).
But the stroke can not there are special models with “charging ports” as USB hubs.
Visually, the Winten a good impression. The seven USB 3.0 ports on the front and also far enough away from each other, the large USB sticks should not cause any problems.
Above each USB port, a small blue LED that lights up when a device is connected.
The processing is robust, even though the choice of materials is something “cheap”. Here I have clearly seen better, but this is probably the price which has to be paid at a slightly cheaper model. Unfortunately, the bottom is not gummed therefore the stroke prone on the table back and forth to slide. Should the Winten have a firm place with you, I would recommend to fix it with some double-sided tape.
Something is a pity that the USB ports are directed forward so pushes you when you tried something with one hand to insert the hub through the area. An oblique angling I find better in general.
But what about the technology?
Well, here one does not notice the Winten its price. Both my PC and on my Macbook there were no problems. Also, all my USB sticks and external hard drives worked without problems, which is not necessarily a matter of course for USB 3.0.
I was able to achieve a data rate of 420MB / s + using my external SSD. You may be even a little more possible with multiple SSDs, etc.
Technically, I have no complaints about the Winten. Here the stroke is as good as the newer more expensive competitors. Only the choice of material is slightly cheaper and processing somewhat coarser. can of course safely access Wen does not interfere.
