    I'm in the market of purchasing usb 3.0 hub for my Mac Pro 6,1, mainly for both data transfer (USB flash drive and external drives) and other peripherals like keyboard/mouse/MIDI interface, I won't use the hub for iDevice charging or syncing.

    Would anyone please provide any hubs that WORKS with Mac Pro 6,1? Thanks

    According to The Wirecutter (http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-usb-hubs/) the Hootoo HooToo® HT-UH010 and Anker USB 3.0 9-Port Hub are great.

    I myself have the HooToo, based on the recommendation and it's working pretty good. On the other hand, I also have a bunch of Anker products, and they have really great customer service. Seems like both products/companies are getting great reviews on Amazon. Just take your pick between the Hootoo or the Anker.

    And to add another option + opinion: I really like the TP-Link powered 7+2-port USB3.0 hub (7 data 700mA ports, 2 power only 2.4A ports), sleek design with small white dots as indicators above the ports.

    Huh. Iogear hasn't changed their USB hub form factor in quite some time. I bought a USB 2.0 hub / multi-card reader from them about 10 years ago and it looked almost identical.
