    Noticed huge issue while playing World of Tanks.
    The game keeps freezing every 10 and 20 seconds for 1 second. It does that even if hub just connected itself without any devices on it. When I plug usb hub off - all goes fine...
    Wtf.

    Hello again dezmen3!


    This would just prove it.
    Like previously said, everything points out to your USB hub which is most likely faulty due to some reason. I doubt it it's your fault, the device has just had a hardware malfunction. It could happen due to power surge, uneven current, faulty cable, bad manufacturing and etc. Working/playing while the USB hub is unplugged and having no problems then, proves it. You could test out other models and USB hubs and see which one you'd like better and would work better, but this one obviously gives you trouble.


    Best of luck!

    Tested hub on laptop with Windows 7 - all fine. Tested same game - no issues at all.
    So I guess it's 8.1 <_< or iMac.

    Yes, it could also be that, or the configuration between the OS and Mac, like I've mentioned in post #4. Or your certain USB ports on the laptop may be malfunctioning. Anyway you look at it, the issue is somewhere in the connection between your laptop-OS-USB hub, where the USB hub or USB ports could be malfunctioning. Test your USB ports with something else as external hardware to eliminate that possibility.
    My advice would also be to contact Apple support about bootcamped Windows:

    Best of luck!

    OS X with this USB hub works fine, so I bet this is Windows issue. Maybe it's 8.1 issue and 7 don't have it, dunno

    W8.1 has no problems communicating with other USB devices, so I find it difficult to accept it is a W8.1 problem. When you connected the hub to W8, were all other devices disconnected from the hub? According to the instructions, you should connect the hub first, let Windows setup the drivers, then connect devices to the hub.

    It's defo 8.1 issue, at least on my iMac. I've tried to update all drivers via DriverSolution and removed hub with device driver deleting and let vindows install it again. OS X working fine with this hub, even World of Tanks works fine in it. Windows 7 on laptop works great too, no bugs. Or this is BootCamp fail or I dunno -_- The only obvious way - install Windows 7.
