I bought this same hub about 6 months ago on a similar deal like this from SD and it has been a great little device. I use it every day and the power switches really come in handy for turning on and off external hard disks when I don't want them spun up. It is a very well made hub and it is much nicer than the Belkin hub I replaced because it did not have individual power switches. Just because you would not personally use a feature do not discount its uses for others.

Possibly for things like USB powered fans or lights. I haven't tried it yet myself to see if it works, but I bought one of these in the past with the intention of leaving my external drives plugged in (some with power bricks, some without) to my laptop all the time, but only turning them on when I wanted to use them.... as opposed to them always being powered up when plugged into a non-power switch hub or directly into my laptop's USB port.

They reduce empty space in your spare parts drawer after you replace the perfectly good Gigabyte/Belkin/generic hub that works just fine but has no pointless switches.

I have the HB-UM43 from a previous deal (paid $5) with code. .
This one's model is HB-UMP3, not sure what's the difference, looks exactly the same except for the "5V/2.5A".
I wanted to use it for turning on and off external hard drives. The drives kept losing connection even with only one active drive.
Manufacturer claims maximum 500mA draw per port. My hard drives don't draw more than 300mA.
I wish I could return it.

I would stay away if I were you.

I have the unpowered version of this at work, turn on and off a desk fan, disable an annoying/noisy barcode scanner so it's only on when I need it, reboot my usb video card when re-docking my laptop and second screen isn't noticed I use to have a similar issue with my logic wireless items but hasn't happened recently. Never had any issues with power or data transfer lag.

I swear I bought this exact thing at five below, 3 years ago for $4.99. The switch feature is kind of a pain, you put your USB on and have a mini panic attack because it's not reading, only to realize that you accidentally turned the switch off.

Bought one of these from Fry's awhile back for an oculus rift setup on an alienware lappy (which lacks sufficient usb 3.0 ports -- works right out of the box with oculus my ass). This hub was unreliable even with the AC adapter plugged in. At first I thought it was because the switches were turned off (or drawing too much power from those on), but the product design is poor. Ended up returning it shortly after.
