I have had 3 USB3 Hubs fail on me now...

Working with a Macbook Air and usually two external drives and a card reader.

Has anyone here had any good experiences? Any recommendations?

Listed on Geekzone price for $41, but the shop itself is $36, so $12 cheaper than Ascent.

Having said that, not including shipping, and I know Ascent delivers.

Thanks very much for the recommendation.

Ordered from Ascent for the included shipping.

Will report back if any problems.

Well.. turns out that Ascents website is misleading. 

It was stated to be in stock. But Apparently it is not.

"On backorder - expected to ship Thursday, 28 February"
