The USB Hub has operated flawlessly for me since it was connected. (About two months now) There are individual switches for each port which I use to isolate my devices, only turning the on as needed. At this time we are only connecting 6 USB memory sticks, one external HD, one External DVD and three Kindles. I use the external power supply to power the devices so as not to overload the computer. I also use the ports and power supply to charge mobile devices such as the Kindles and phone. As noted by other reviewers the magnets that are supplied to hold the Hub to a Computer case were not adhered to the hub, some had fallen out and were loose in the packaging. This was OK as I did not want to use the magnets any way and would have removed them. The could have been epoxied in if they were needed. I used hook and loop tape to mount the Hub to the side of my computer desk. No complaints so far.
Which is great as I have an Asus Micro motherboard. The Star Tech 630 watt power supply I bought at Overstock will work with the case better than the case I have since the power supply is to be installed at the bottom giving more fan potential than the 8 available space noted for the case. Heat rises; Which is nice since it can rise to the right side of the case where two fans can be mounted and on top where two more fans can be mounted. The side you can't see on the right side of the case is important where two fans can be installed because hard drives create heat, too. The case is lightweight and the design is incredible.
