    I think I've tried all the brands and they all have issues. Mostly, they work fine if you never unplug or move them. My travel Anker doesn't always stay powered if it gets moved, which means my hard drives shut off. This is my mobile one and is the 3rd or 4th one with this issue (all different brands).

    The one I have plugged into my studio computer never has a problem, but I also never unplug it (it plugs into a strip that gets turned off) or move it (I taped it down with double sided tape) It is an Aukey.

    I also recommend getting more ports than you need. Makes it easier to add a drive later.

    I want to thank all of you for the advice :). I will check out all the recommendations made here, but I suppose I'l be buying the Anker hubs since so many people here seem to be happy with them.

    Another vote for Anker here. Mine has been serving me very well.
