This is my third IOGear powered USB hub that I have purchased. The units are rock solid, with a well designed layout. I have never had any problems and the data transfer rates are superb with no choke point at the hub. This is my first combo firewire/USB hub and I went with a brand that has given me flawless use. Never any issues with installation or the drivers and never a crash due the hub. I currently am running 1 & 2 TB external drives of both SATA and IDE drives. I do a lot of multitrack audio recording using wave files that are 24/96. The hub has never affect any read or write speeds even when working on recording sessions that are well over 25GB worth of information being passed back and forth. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
Thought it was a Fire Wire/USB converter, so wasn't what I was looking for, but works great for what it was made for.
