7 Port USB 3.0 Hub with 4A Power Adapter Review and USB 3.0 missing Driver Fix

7 Port USB 3.0 Hub with 4A Power Adapter Review and USB 3.0 missing Driver Fix

 

 

USB 3.0 7-Port HUBTechnology moves fast and the most popular device we use are powered and used via USB port.

Because I recently bought a USB 3.0 Flash Drive and Memory card reader that runs un USB 3.0 and learned that USB 3.0 has transmission speeds of up to 5 Gbit/s, which is 10 times as fast as USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/s) before taking into account that USB 3.0 is full duplex whereas USB 2.0 is half duplex, giving USB 3.0 the potential total bandwidth if utilized both ways to 20 times that of USB 2.0.

Now that I had few USB 3.0 devices I wanted to have a way to easily access the ports without pulling my PC tower to plug in my Flash Drive.  So I searched online and found A 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub.

I found one on eBay for $25. It’s a USB 3.0 7-Port Powered Hub. The reason I said powered is because It comes with A power supply. There are bunch of hubs that come without a power supply however you need to understand that USB devices consume power and USB port provides limited amount of power. With few USB devices plugged in into a USB hub you will noticed that your computer will throw a warning indicating that some of your devices are not working properly or will show other indication stating that there is a problem. This error or  device not working properly is a result that all available power has been used and you need to turn off one or more devices from your hub. This is where powered hub comes is and fixes that problem by providing additional power to your USB Devices.

IMG_2667[1]

When you purchase a USB HUB especially like mine 7 Port USB 3.0 you will need that extra power especially without addition power you will not be able to use all 7 Ports.

 

The USB 3.0 Hub that I purchased is a NO name USB Hub. The box states that it is Win/Mac Compatible and that it supports windows 7.

When I finally got it I was so excited and I will be able to plug in all my devices and any future devices I will have.  This particular Hub has 7 ports, Light indication that indicate when a device is ON and a ON/OFF switch for each port just in case you want to leave your device plugged in but you don’t want it to be used. The Hub came with USB 3.0 2 feet cable and 4A power supply. The thinks that it did not come with was any CD or manual. No big deal Right? Wrong!!!

I quickly unpacked it and plugged it in to a USB 3.0 in the back of my PC and connected the power supply to AC outlet. The computer recognized that it is a Hub and started to load Drivers but after one minute a notification came up stating that the device was not installed correctly.

The box stated that this Hub supports Windows 7 but the problem is that I have Windows Vista Professional 32Bit installed on my system. I automatically knew that the problem is that I need to find a driver for this Hub.

USB 3.0 Connction

After spending some time on the web I was able to find something similar to what I was looking for.

I found a Driver On Lenavo website USB 3.0 Driver for Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), Vista (32-bit, 64-bit), XP – ThinkPad which I installed and my USB 3.0 Hub Started working.

If you are need a driver for your USB Hub than CLICK HERE to Download USB 3.0 HUB Driver directly from Lenavo Website.

 

 You can try one from Intel CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

 You can try one from Via Labs (slow download) CLICK HERE TO DOWNLAD

 

I hope this fixes you USB 3.0 Driver problem.

Apple Vs. Samsung Vs. LG Smartphone War 2014

Apple Vs. Samsung Vs. LG Smartphone War 2014

 Galaxy_S4

This is another year that we are waiting for big rivals like Apple and Samsung to release new Flagship Smartphone.

It is certain that all 3 companies will be coming out with new phones this year, so which one will win us over.

Samsung will be announcing a new Flagship phone Galaxy S5 in March 2014. There were a lot of talks that Samsung will have the new OLED Flex Screen that was announced during CES 2013 but the new rumors suggest that it is unlikely. New rumors suggest that Samsung will be using QHD display instead of flexible OLED. That’s a bummer since LG announced that there 2014 phone will be G Flex, slightly curved phone.  Lets not rule it out just yet because Samsung will likely introduce two phones this year and just maybe one of the will be include the Flexible screen As that would be a game Changer for Samsung.

Apple will introduce a new IPhone 6 this year around September, October 2014. There are rumors and more rumors that Apple will have bigger screen. It is almost certain that it will as the current IPhone 5S and 5C screen is little to small for a current Smartphone.  There are also rumors that just like Samsung it may have up to 3 different sizes coming out in third quarter of this year. Will The new Iphone have Flex Screen? It is possible but also unlikely. It is assumed that the flex screen will be introduced by both companies in 2015.

LG wants to shine this year with what they call it a G Flex Phone. The new concept is defiantly cool but will it win the consumer? Probably not. It is still questionable how well build the phone is as it might be subject brake because of its bend shape. It is unlikely that LG phone will be able to Compete with Samsung or Apple but it just might come in a third place. Time will tell.

Confirmed: Apple IPhone 6 Will Have Larger Screen

Will IPhone 6 Bigger Screen Save Apple ?Apple Stocks going down

Numerous sources have confirmed that apple will have larger  screen. However this is still not good new to share holders as Samsung Galaxy had larger screen for 2 years now. It is predicted that Apple shares AAPL Will lose value by 20-40% do to lack of innovations. Since Steve Wozniak has left Apple, there were no new innovations. Steve Jobs was able to take other technologies and combine them in his image to make something new. Now that Steve Jobs is no longer with Apple, Apple will have trouble coming out with something new as current Apple goal is to spent most of its time in courts fighting over patents.

Samsung to Announce its new flagship phone Galaxy S5 in late March – Early April

Galaxy_S4

 

There are a lot of rumors floating around we can almost bet that the new Samsung Galaxy S5  will be releast around March or April. Samsung tends to release a new phone every year so this time it should not be different.

What we know so far:

  • Galaxy S5 will have new improved screen.
  • More megapixel camera
  • Most likely a new design
  • Rapid Charge battery which will allow charging a battery in less than 2 hours

There is still no confirmation that the new galaxy S5 will have flex screen, but I a confident that it wall as Samsuhng has already created few prototypes with Flex Screen and was showing them off in 2013

Did you ever wanted to sell on eBay and make a lot of Money? It is simpler than you may Think.

Eebay

Did you ever wanted to sell on eBay and make a lot of Money? It is simpler than you may Think.

 

I have been selling on eBay for 12 Years now. Since I started EBay has changed in a lot of ways, something became better and some worse.

The biggest think that eBay has changed in 2013 was a new Policy providing Buyers 100% satisfaction or your money back. In another words “Customer is always Right”.

If you are a buyer that that is a good news for you. If you are a seller then it’s another story. As a seller I found that there is a lot of EBay buyers that abuse the system resulting a huge loss for the seller.

Another thing that eBay introduced was the new Fee Policy, Regular sellers pay 10% fee from final sales price including shipping,  little lower sales fees for eBay stores.

I will leave all the details for my next article but in mean time if you want to start selling on eBay than you are in luck.

I have created a YouTube video for you to make it ever easier. Just click on the link below and you will be selling in no time and making your $1000+ mounthy

START SELLING NOW – YOUTUBE VIDEO

Buyers frustrated with EBay and now even the Sellers – What this means!

Ebay

Buyers frustrated with EBay and now even the Sellers – What this means!

 

 

EBay has come a long way in last 3 years, new policy changes, basically changes to the way EBay does business o every day bases.. I myself am a eBay seller and I do allot of my shopping on eBay as well and I don’t like what is happening on both ends.

As a seller I feel like I am just getting taken for a ride by eBay. EBay decides everything to favor EBay. No matter what you do or not do, their actions are always the actions that reflect best on EBay.

Few biggest changes is that the Buyer is always right, PayPal is the only way of payment and increased fees. Buyers think that only the seller pays the fees, and that is partly true, but what buyers don’t realize is that those fees impact buyers in many ways.

Sellers bay on average 12% fee on a sold item. The fees varies from item to item but here is the basic brake down.

Fee for listing a item: $0-$2.50

Sales fee on item: 6-10% of final sold price

Shipping fee: 6-10% on total shipping cost charged by seller

PayPal payment fee: 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction, 3.9% transaction fee plus a fixed fee based on currency received.

So lets get a visual on the fees. So lets say I am selling a new IPhone 5S and I normally is costs $600 for a new one without a contract.

So I want to sell it for $600 as well and I will ship it priority mail for $9 + $7 + $16 for signature and insurance. Then I need to pay the fees if It sells

Listing fee:  .75 + (final sales fee 10%) $60 + (Shipping fee 10%) $1.60 + (PayPal payment processing 2.9% from $616(total money transfer) $18 = an the total is

$79.35 in total fees. That is a lot!!!

New Life Auctions has created fee calculator that you can play around and determine what your fees are

So what does this mean to A Buyer. If I am selling a item I am selling it to make profit, not take loses, so what I will do is increase the price in order to offset my cost of fees. I may not sell a item fast as I originally wanted but evenly I will sell my item at a higher price. What a lot of buyers don’t realize that you sometimes pay more on eBay than just going to your local store.

What you are also seeing is that more and more big companies start to sell on EBay, kicking small sellers of as they can no longer compete.

In few more years you will see that the only sellers on eBay will be Tigerdirect, Best Buy, Buy.com and so on.

If you have been on eBay for the last 10 years I am sure you noticed that there are no more great bargains on used electronics. The only thing eBay is still good is on buying electronic accessories.

Samsung Galaxy S5 With OLED Flex Screen? Most likely – release around March 2014

Samsung Galaxy S5 With OLED Flex Screen? Most likely – release around March 2014

They might be rumors or maybe not but just like LG and Apple, Samsung will release the New Flex Screen Phone in early 2014. It is not surprise as we already seen a prototype during their showcase.

The only thing I would ask what ales will Samsung bring to the table.

Samsung has been busy coming out with new TVs, phones and tablets this year. It looks like that Samsung took the first place this year when it comes to being innovative. So if we see them do it again in 2014 it will be no supervise. We will have to wait till the date gets closer to get more details about ther upcoming device line

Apple IPhone 6 will have Samsung OLED Flex screen

Apple IPhone 6 will have Samsung OLED Flex screen 

Rumors have surfaced that the New Apple Iphone 6 will have Samsung OLED Flex screen on their phones. This is not really a surprise because LG will be releasing their LG G Flex phone before Christmas 2013 and available everywhere 1st quarter of 2014 . The only thing is will Apple innovations stop and they will copy what others are doing or will they do something innovating.

So far we here more about Apple releasing new Iphone. There is believe that there will be three version, Iphone 6, Iphone 6+ (a larger screen version) and Iphone 6C.

We will soon see what apple has stored for us,  This years Apple releases have not dazzled us as much.
