Pass for me. The type a receptacle being used for the host connection is probably one of the oddest things I've encountered in this product category. KVMs, print servers sure, but not consumer grade hubs. rather than something obvious this will make it a pain to use anything but the included cable (which is reflected in the first review) if you ever lose it or need a longer length.
It looks like a standard USB A connector?

This should have a type B receptacle. Having a type A means:

1. you are not sure if the cable is a straight A to A cable or some other proprietary pinout (you'll have to check it yourself);

2. Do you have a type A to A cable hanging around? Probably not. so it is inconvenient.

3. If you need to buy a longer cable, you'll have to watch carefully to make sure it is for USB 3 (with the extra pins) and with length/wire gauge meeting USB 3's standard (because that A to A cable may be made for USB 1 or 2); but it just used 3's type B, then all this is eliminated.

Many powered hubs heats up especially when you are drawing lots of power charging devices. I much prefer metal housing, and this one appears to be plastic.

They sell USB A to USB A cables. Granted it is weird that it's not another type of connector, it is a readily available one.

I have this and have zero issues. I like it. Though I don't use it too heavily.

USB connections aren't peer-to-peer. One side of the cable is the host (usually the computer), the other side is the client (peripheral). USB-A connectors are standard for the host side. It's never supposed to be on the client side. And there isn't supposed to be such thing as a USB-A to USB-A cable. That's like a power cable with prongs on both ends.

p.s. This is about USB-A/B connectors. USB-C is different, it's still not peer-to-peer but the same connector is used on both ends, so USB-C devices *are* protected against someone plugging the wrong end of the cable.

USB A to A cable is the equivalent of a power cord with prongs on both ends. It's a violation of the connector standard, and has the potential to cause damage (e.g. if you connect the output port on one computer to the output port on another computer by mistake- it would *probably* be OK, but that's not something they're protected against because such a cable isn't even supposed to exist).

Can I use the 3 charging ports as data ports? I really don't need so many charging ports at the same time. Thanks for any info!

Still waiting for 3.1/3.2 hubs with at least 6 ports. Almost no one makes them.
