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.

4 Port Akasa Bullet 5Gb/s USB 3.0 HUB with USB powered self-power mode or via Mains Power AC adaptor is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well So far it is not be necessary to connect the power supply to the device but I suspect that it would be if I connected multiple USB hard drives. The power supply is quite large, and it has adapters for both three pin UK and two pin European connection. The USB cable that connects to your computer is quite short and does not work well with the floor mounted tower style computer but is great for desktop or laptop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very light but very nice. 50 characters, oh well here we go, it is a very sunny day at the moment, and I have just made the porridge, and that was very nice, oh, the product, well let me see it has four ports, you can either ( and I think all USB hubs should be ) use it with the mains power thingy, or unplug it and use it as an ordinary USB powered ( that is not mains ) hub, which some USB items cannot take, just made a cup of tea, now the porridge has gone down, the hub is er'm a hub 4 port type, it is very small and light, and I needed some Bluetack to keep it in place, there is only one slight drawback ( for me ) the USB power lead is extremely short appx 50cm, I cannot measure it at the moment as it's plugged in, and if I unplugged it now the whole caboodle will crash, oh dear, spilt my tea now, but I would recommend it, have fun x.

Questions & Answers

How long is the USB 3.0 lead for this hub?

I want to connect this to my desktop PC, but need a decent length USB lead so that I can place the hub in a suitable place on my desk.
Asked by: Hedgehog1965UK
It's about 500 mm long, so it should be fine for desktop.In needed an extra extension for my floor mounted tower.
