The Anker USB 3.0 Hub is a high-speed, dual port mobile work station with a transfer rate of up to 5 Gbps.
The $16 hub doesn't require any drivers to operate, and the circular hub, which comes with a 3.3-foot cord to connect to a desktop, is easily transportable in either your pocket, your bag or in the palm of your hand, such is its sleek, linear design. The Anker USB 3.0 Hub's dual port means that hot swapping, plug and play functions and full backward compatibility with USB 2.0/1.1 is achievable, and comes with a built-in surge protector.
The hub is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8, and Mac OS 9.1 and above. For those with a Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4, users should upgrade to Mountain Lion 10.8.2 or later to avoid unstable connections.
