Package Content & Design
For your information, QICENT is a sub brand of the famous ORICO that you might know. QICENT focuses on HDD enclosures, USB hub, charger and so on. Therefore, they share lot of similarity here and there. Packaging and user manual design are the same to me as you can see.
There are QICENT 7 Port USB 3.0 Hub, power adaptor, USB 3.0 cable, user manual and thank you card in the package. You can select EU and US plug to match your need.
Built quality is decent with sturdy ABS plastic as housing. It has matte rubberized surface too. Nice to touch and feel for sure. Bottom is the shiny plastic with 2 anti-skid pads. Does provide some stability here but not much.
It’s super easy to use QICENT 7 Port USB 3.0 Hub. Just plug it to your laptop / computer will do. Yes, no manual driver installation is required as plug and play is supported. But do take note that it can’t be used without power source. 7 USB ports are a lot and need to be powered for sure.
VIA USB3.0 controller – VL812 chipset performs great here. I am getting maximum file transfer rate on my Transcend StoreJet 25MC portable hard drive. In addition, the wide USB port spacing lets you connect all your devices like keyboard, mouse, hard drive, cooling pad and other devices easily. You can connect all of them with 7 ports here.
This hub is not a charger but it sure does have the ability to charge fast. As you can see, I am getting 1.5A juice to Redmi Note 4X. Pretty impressive I must say. It can be act as backup charger besides being a normal USB hub.
