I have problems with the reliability of Sabrent equipment, do you?


Most of what I buy from Sabrent is USB hubs and external hard drive bays. But after another Sabrent USB hub stopped working, I am starting to get a clue that there may be a problem. I've replaced five or six Sabrent devices in the last few years. And I bought this particular hub a year ago or less. I'd better try another brand.

Would not be the first time a manufacturer has produced garbage, doubt it will be the last. I gave up on Seagate HDs for the same reason after the trash they sold me many years ago, I have never bought another from them in the over decade since. And the WD drives that replaced them still work I have three left that I did not sell off when upgrading to larger drives. The 11 May 2010 for date produced is on the label of a 2TB on my desk I use in a USB3 external hub for quick backups, all of that garbage from Seagate was dead by then or shortly thereafter. I have had a couple WD die on me but not the entire lot of drives.
