    It works but the cable is way too short!

    • Written by Janet B from UTTOXETER

    I decided to ignore the previous reviews and went ahead and purchased this item. The power cable is way too short. Having the power cable and the USB cable on the same side of the hub, means the hub is dangling in mid air, because my power supply is not near the back of the iMac. Had they been on opposite sides, it would have been O.K. I just don't understand why manufacturers make the cables so short. Without the cable the product will not work and as far as I am aware, it is not possible to buy an extension to the power cable. I will be asking Belkin about this though. We buy from Apple because we trust them to offer us products fit for purpose, even if they come at a highly inflated price. On the plus side however, after plugging my WD passport into the hub, the iMac did recognise it immediately. I'm going to keep it as it does the job, but I expected better. Very disappointed.

    the cable break

    • Written by Manjit B from Vancouver

    I use the hub when I am at home & now the cable seems to have broken at the USB-C connector & no longer is recognized by my MacBook Pro.

    bad design

    • Written by Sai C from Pittsburgh

    whoever designed this should be fired. If I wanted a USB 3.0 hub, I'd have bought a USB 3.0 hub. The only USB-c thing you are paying for here is the cord, which is also pretty short. Everything else is USB 3.0. Since the cord is removable, if you lose it, which is pretty easy because it's small, you're SOL and your hub is bricked. The only place you can get a replacement C to micro-3.0 cord is Amazon, so you can't just pop in to your local electronics store. Belkin didn't think this design through at all. Worse yet, the box in Apple stores doesn't indicate it's really a USB 3.0 hub with a USB-C dongle. I wish I had the original packaging so I could return it but unfortunately I left it in another city while traveling.
