Nope. I have something similar from Canada Computers. No issues with portability or "bulkiness".

Thanks OP.
Might come in handy for my Laptop as I only have 2 USB ports. And 1 is used for my wireless receiver for my keyboard & mouse.

Mmmm is this a USB C or USB A hub? Description says "Reversible USB-C connector for hassle-free connections", but images show a USB A port.

I am thinking the description is incorrect and it's just a USB A (3.0) hub.

When I do USB 3.0 Type A hubs, I only do powered hubs.

Too many painful life lessons.

What do you guys think?

Do you really need that many ports? USB 2.0 is fine for keyboards, and mice. The on-off switch is nice though.

I'm not really a big fan of hubs that don't have an optional power input port. If spinning drives are connected, without the extra power, there could be an issue.

I've had this exact hub for 2 years. One of the USB ports is busted now. It's not the sturdiest of hubs, but for the price you can't go wrong.

I'd been using one of these for a couple of months before it started falling apart.
Probably wear from semi-frequently swapping devices, but it wasn't very well built.

Worth noting that it feels even cheaper than the price tag might imply.
