TRIPP LITE USB3 Hub: 'Bulletproof', now Using two of Them

OWC has the TRIPP LITE USB3 hub ON SPECIAL for only $52.90.

See the MPG review of the TRIPP LITE USB3 hub.


I (Lloyd) just installed a second TRIPP LITE USB3 hub on my Mac Pro. I had my fill of unplugging stuff to plug in other stuff, so now two hubs are attached. They just sit there and work with never an issue (for well over a year now).

Count up the stuff that needs USB3 juice, 14 items:

  • Two iphones and an iPad, simultaneously. +3
  • SRM Power Control 7. +1
  • Dual-slot card reader. +3
  • High speed SDXC card reader: +1
  • Two USB3 SSDs. +2
  • NEC calibrator for PA302W wide gamut display. +1
  • Keyboard +1
  • Two spare ports for additional drives, camera USB3 cable, etc +2
  • Printer (not me but some people).

The TRIPP LITE USB3 hub is fanless, so it’s silent. I don’t want a 16-port USB hub with a fan for charging iPads, as nice as it looks.

By the way, here’s a cool product for plugging up to 16 gadgets. | Terms of Use | PRIVACY POLICY
