FAQ (5)

Does the 4-Port hub work with Apple USB Super Drive?
No, Apple Super Drive will only work when plugged-in driectly to your mac, any USB 3. hubs will not power up the drive.

Is the Power Adapter required to be plugged in all the time? I've seen other adapters where the power adapter is only necessary if you need to boost power above the USB 3's 900 mAmps.
That is correct, power adapter is not required to use the USB3 hub, only needed when you need 900mA for each USB port. Thanks.

The adapter can also be used for Europe? (4-Port hub)
Yes, all you will need is a international adapter converter

The 10W charging feature on Port 1 is nice. Why not enable port 1 to handle an Apple USB Super Drive? Sounds like a firmware mod. Need help? Then I would buy one and probably a million other people would too if Kanex fixed this and sold them through the Apple Store. Can I help?
Sorry Vincent but the Apple USB Super Drive is known not to work with any of the HUB connection as Apple states in there page. It requires the Drive to be plug directly into the Mac that has no Disc Drive http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2801??viewlocale=en_US

I have purchased 6-7 of the kanex USB 3.0 hubs so far and loves them. I have a question on the hub. Is it ok to daisy chain the hubs and are there any known issues to doing so?I am asking this because the new Mac Pro I am using seems to have some issues with USB items (hubs and storage and all) when plugged to it, and when sleeping, it can go into reboots when waking up. Do you know of any issues as such?
Our Hubs are not daisy-chainable. Thanks.

Excellent performance. I used it with an iMac 2013. It's nice to be able to charge my iPhone when the iMac is shut down. So far, fully satisfied.

I use it with my Macbook Pro Retina, works well and all devices seem to work at full USB 3 speeds. This was one of the few devices that seemed to offer this strangely enough.
