Anker have done a good job with their brand new USB Hub. This product is sleek at just 1cm in height, making it ideal for mounting underneath a desk like what decided to do. The hub features 4 USB 3.0 ports, and in the variant I purchased, came with a 3.3ft extension cable. The Anker Hub is very discreet at what it does; it doesn’t need to be seen, and can be out of sight if need be.
In terms of the outer packaging, Anker, stuck with their classic blue and white colour scheme. The Anker logo is displayed, and there is the product name. On the other side of the box, Anker’s 18 Month warranty and other “achievements” of Anker are displayed. Inside the box, you find the USB Hub, an extension cable (Depending on variant), and a user guide.
