FAQ (5)


Does the 4-Port hub work with Apple USB Super Drive?
No, Apple Super Drive will only work when plugged-in driectly to your mac, any USB 3. hubs will not power up the drive.


Is the Power Adapter required to be plugged in all the time? I've seen other adapters where the power adapter is only necessary if you need to boost power above the USB 3's 900 mAmps.
That is correct, power adapter is not required to use the USB3 hub, only needed when you need 900mA for each USB port. Thanks.


The adapter can also be used for Europe? (4-Port hub)
Yes, all you will need is a international adapter converter


The 10W charging feature on Port 1 is nice. Why not enable port 1 to handle an Apple USB Super Drive? Sounds like a firmware mod. Need help? Then I would buy one and probably a million other people would too if Kanex fixed this and sold them through the Apple Store. Can I help?
Sorry Vincent but the Apple USB Super Drive is known not to work with any of the HUB connection as Apple states in there page. It requires the Drive to be plug directly into the Mac that has no Disc Drive http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2801??viewlocale=en_US


I have purchased 6-7 of the kanex USB 3.0 hubs so far and loves them. I have a question on the hub. Is it ok to daisy chain the hubs and are there any known issues to doing so?I am asking this because the new Mac Pro I am using seems to have some issues with USB items (hubs and storage and all) when plugged to it, and when sleeping, it can go into reboots when waking up. Do you know of any issues as such?
Our Hubs are not daisy-chainable. Thanks.

I use these products together to expand my hard disk space with a couple of external 4TB USB3 disks. They have worked better than I expected. Reading& writing speeds are excellent. Blackmagic Disk Speed Test gives 170-190 MB/s for both R&W, which is more than double compared to my Macs internal 1TB HDD!!! The only negative point was the length of the TB cable of the adapter, but after I fixed the adapters to the back side of my Mac with double sided power tape, that doesn't bother anymore.

I use the hub to attach 8 TB of external USB disks to my 2014 Mac Mini. It works very well. However, delivery was very slow (~ 4 weeks) and there was almost no communication from you about its status.. It did get here finally. However, by the time it did arrive I had ordered a second unit from one of your vendors. Now I have two of them. The product(S) are just fine. You need to rethink how you communicate with your customers regarding online purchases.

This hub is the best USB 3.0 out there by far that I've come acrossed. I purchased several before buying The Kanex Power Hub& I am totally 110% satified. No drop issues, connects with ease. I see a few complaints about the wall wart, but you need a power supply that is gonna keep all your devices powered correctly& continuesly. I use the Kanex for my Glyph Studio mini 1TB as well as linking my Pioneer CDJ2000 nexus& NI X1 with "NO ISSUES". The only thing is finding an extra power supply if you loose the one that came with it is a task. All in all, a great product& I would most definitely recommend it to a friend.....

I use it with a MacBook Pro, works flawlessly. I like that it's small. I wish it had lights to indicate power and host connectivity.

I've purchased cheap hubs that weren't so cheap, that lasted three months or less. I've had a previous kanex hub running for the last year. If you want the product to last, buy this hub.

Excellent performance. I used it with an iMac 2013. It's nice to be able to charge my iPhone when the iMac is shut down. So far, fully satisfied.

I use it with my Macbook Pro Retina, works well and all devices seem to work at full USB 3 speeds. This was one of the few devices that seemed to offer this strangely enough.
