You can tell that this item isn't made with the best materials because it's light and feels a little flimsy, but honestly, so what? It works very well and doesn't look bad on the desk when you take care of cable management. I used Velcro to fasten mine down and it makes it feel sturdy and solid. I also taped the cords down in tracks so that they are organized. The one real downside I see to this is that the power cord is pretty short. I have mine about the middle of my desk and the cord barely makes it down the back of the desk to the floor. I'd say give it a shot, probably there's a really small chance that you'll get a defective one. Most people who write reviews are the ones that had problems. There's probably an infinite number more who were fully satisfied so that had no reason to go back and write a review. Keep that in mind.

Hub with adapter
The adapter works with 220V so if you're not from the US, you don't have to worry about that.
Something to note is that your USB devices will stick out a little bit as can be seen from the photo (The USB port doesn't go all the way inside the hub)
This design makes pulling tiny USB sticks out effortless. However this affects how tightly held the devices are. Short USB sticks won't wobble, but longer ones like my Asus Wifi adapter will. Not enough wobble to bend or break the USB though, so no worries here.
Before buying this one, I had my eyes on the Anker 13 ports hub which runs 12V 5A. The reason why I went with this one is because you technically get more output of each slot since this is 12V 2A for 4 ports. And also for the fact that you connect your USBs horizontally, whereas the 13 ports hub is vertical.
I'm happy with this adapter and I'm thinking of buying another one
I'll edit this review if I come across any problem

Love the individual blue indicator LEDs
This USB 3.0 hub works perfectly. Love the individual blue indicator LEDs; they help you know when something connects or disconnects properly, and they aren't terribly bright, either (which, for me, is a good thing. My last hub had a blue LED light also, but it blinded you if you stared at it too long. lol). Didn't have to wait long at all for my Surface Pro 4 to recognize the hub, and there is no lag time at all when I connect or disconnect devices. Also, because of the supplied AC adapter, I find that it doesn't drain any of my Surface's battery. It isn't as small as other hubs I've seen, but it is still highly portable, and with a power adapter stronger than other hubs I researched, you can guarantee your devices are getting the power they need. (I also don't need to carry a hub with me for the most part since my Surface has a USB 3.0 when I need it and bluetooth technology otherwise.) Best of all, once you turn off your computer, the LED indicators turn off, even though your device is still plugged into power. Again, my last hub, since it was powered through an AC adapter, would always leave the light on. It was annoying to say the least, but this one is perfect.) Oh, and I really like the longer cable it comes with (as well as the fact that the cable is detachable for better storage and if it breaks later on down the road).
So, overall, great little hub that does wonders for me! Worth the little extra cash FOR SURE. :):)
P.S.: Contrary to one review I read, I haven't noticed the hub or any of my devices get too hot due to the adapter.
