I had been searching for powered multi-port USB 3.0 hub for awhile and found a very good one in the Aukey 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub. The four data USB 3.0 ports + the three charging ports means I’ll never really run out of room with connecting high powered devices & transferring data as well as fast charging at 2.4A per port in the charging ports.
Installation was easy. Connect the supplied AC adapter to the power port and plug into your wall socket. Connect the included USB 3.0 cable to the data port and then connect to your desktop or laptop. Turn on the hub via the power switch. Drivers will install and the USB 3.0 powered hub will be ready to go. A User Guide is also included.
File transfer speeds are very fast as expected, as is the fast charging in the charge ports. I can plug a multitude of USB flash drives, external hard drives (or SSDs), a smartphone, tablet, GPS unit, Bluetooth speakers and a host of USB devices. This hub has been a permanent fixture on my desk. I just wish it also offered USB-C Power Delivery ports. Recommended.
