Can the USB3-E1000 be plugged into a USB3 hub?

My MacBook Pro Retina has only 2 USB3 ports. I have to have a hub since I have 3 devices, incl. the USB3-E1000. Can the USB3-E1000 be plugged into a hub? If so, does it have to be a powered hub, or can it be an unpowered hub? Thanks!

Hi Mark,

Thanks for posting your question here! Yes, you can connect the Plugable USB3-E1000 via a powered USB 3.0 Hub.

We do not recommend using an unpowered hub to connect the Plugable USB3-E1000.
