AmazonBasics USB 3.1 Hub
10-Port USB Hub (USB-A 3.1)
Test period: 06.06.2020 until 24.10.2020
What is the purpose of a USB hub?
Such a USB distributor as the AmazonBasics USB hub type USB-A 3.1 with 10 ports and power adapter is actually ideal for charging and synchronising smartphones and tablets.
This USB hub was to replace my good old D-Link DUB-H7 USB-Hub (USB-A 2.0) with 7 ports and connected my external hard drives via an adapter cable from Apple (USB-C to USB-A) to my new Apple MacBook Air (long-term practical test report in progress).
Only reformatting was still possible, so I reformatted it with encryption as Time Machine media.
If this test report had not already been almost finished, I would have simply deleted it.
But this way it serves as a warning to be very, very careful when choosing a USB hub …
The versatile hub from AmazonBasics is suitable for USB 3.1, 3.0 and 2.0 and is compatible with macOS and Windows 10.
