I need a better hub for my powered external hard drives. I recently purchased a Sabrent Sabrent 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Individual LED Lit Power Switches, Included 5V/2.5A Power Adapter (HB-UMP3) from Amazon, but I not sure if it was defective or just wasn’t made to handle my drives. The drives kept disconnecting randomly, so I sending it back.
Does anyone here have any experience with the OSMC hub?
I want to be able to hook up all my drives to the Vero and then be able to disconnect the hub from the Vero and connect it to my Windows 10 PC to add, remove or organize files between the drives.
My questions for the OSMC hub are:
!. When the hub is attached to the PC can files be transferred between the drives (some hubs have trouble with this)?
Since each drive has it’s own power, does the hub have to be powered?
Do the drives have to be “Safely removed” from the Vero, before turning off the hub switches?
Does the hub transfer files at the 3.0 rate (speed) when attached to the PC?
