Aukey vs Hoo Too Review

Posted on October 1st, 2014 by & filed under Product Reviews

USB power port hubs, a blogger’s friend.

We all need them. More ways to plug in. My lap top only has three ports. I often need more. What’s a girl to do?

I was asked to try these products and received free samples. See my disclosure for details on reviews like this. All opinions are my own. Even though I get to keep the products, I have no connection with the manufacturers and am not obligated to give a positive review. (Disclosure.)

HT-UH007 Bus Powered 4-Port USB 3.0 HUB

2014-09-21 09.31.34Looking at the box, I thought this device was going to be bulky and I thought it looked like a power strip. I was impressed when I opened it up and it has a simple, sleek design. I plugged it in and it was super easy to use. I love having the ports in a position that are easy to see and readily available for use, especially since I started recording videos for my podcast, Ten Minutes in Tinsel Town, I use multiple USB drives, microphone, and headphones, so this really helps!

I highly recommend the HT-UH007 Bus Powered 4-Port USB 3.0 HUB.

 

 

How does it compare to the Aukey 4-Port Hub?

Aukey 4-Port Hub

2014-07-12 17.36.24I really liked the Aukey device, and fell in love with it’s modern design. It is great to plug in next to my pc. It is a little cumbersome for my laptop and it’s light weight and sleek attributes get tossed around a lot with the cables, so it doesn’t always look that pretty. Other than that, it is functional, easy to use, good looking, and powerful. (Just like me!)

I am super lucky to have both products to use as needed. If I had to decide on one, it would be difficult. They are both top quality and useful gadgets. I might go with the Hoo Too, which is just slightly better for me. I don’t care for the design as much, but it seems tougher – if that makes sense. The design of the Aukey is pretty and elegant, I guess that gives me the impression that it isn’t as powerful. But it is! It is very fast when accessing big files.
