TekSpek Guides
Date Issued: 21st Oct 2008

You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.

If you've used a computer for any duration of time you'll have come across the terms “kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte” and so on. Then there's “kilobit, megabit and gigabit” to add a bit of confusion and to top it all off you've maybe heard or read terms like “gibibyte” on occasion.

4 Port Akasa AK-HB-08BK Connect 4SX USB 3.0 Hub is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not seem to work with powered Hard Drive Caddies Nice design and works OK with mice, keyboards, etc. However, does not work with USB3 connected powered [i.e. with external transformer] Hard Drive Caddies. I 'think' I also had a problem with USB3 sticks [but can't be bothered testing it again]. The documentation DOES state that it's not designed for Hard Drives over 1TB but I assumed that was to do with USB3 power. As the Caddies have transformers, I thought that did not apply. Out of interest...the Dynamode USB 3.0 4-Port Compact Pocket Hub DOES work OK with powered Hard Drive Caddies.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from XP be whare The Lead is very short and it does not work with windows XP; although i suspect the lack of a hub driver will affect any usb3 hub on xp. If it is plugged into a usb2 port on windows XP it worked fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 4 Port USB hub Unfortuantely within 2 weeks of me using this unit the front of it came off whilst I was disconnecting a USB lead. A small futher irritation was that the unit's own USB is quite short

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quick Bought this for my surface tablet to allow connection of more peripherals at the same time, very quick and is self powered.
