The connection points themselves also seem unreliable at best. The connection from the hub to my laptop seemed very temperamental and just the slightest movement could risk disconnection. And this was only made worse once you started connecting things to the inputs, with every additional USB the connection became worse and worse.
Eventually I just gave up and ordered an Anker hub instead. It's a bit more expensive but it's a decent brand and 7 days in I've not had any problems.
UPDATE: Sabrent read the above review and got in touch offering a replacement. This arrived (without any cost) and the new one is working fine after three months, so I've given the product 4 stars (up from one) on the basis that the new one does what it's supposed to, and for their decent customer service.
Yes, the name "Sabrent Mini 3-Port USB 3.0 Rotating Hub' doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it certainly does do exactly what it says on the tin.
First, it is very light, with the main body actually turning out (what looks to be) a coated plastic, rather than alloy / aluminium (I say this, as the one I've received has a scratch right down one side). It might not be what I expected, but it's actually advantageous to have something that's very light, when it could end up in a backpack and being carried around.
The 'Source' USB connection (the one that'll connect the hub to a main device or outlet) does allow for click-free rotation through 180 degrees. Very handy, as unlike USB-C, I've found that not all the ports on my devices are orientated in the most convenient way. With the main USB socket offset to one end, this means that I can swing the 3-port hub out of the way, allowing me better access.
The blue (LED) illuminates immediately when plugged into a powered source (nice simple indication that it's working) and was 'auto detected' as a hub device, with no need for drivers (or updates). It's worth noting that the LED's actually quite bright, enough to light up the nearest USB port on the hub.
All connections on the hub checked out, being nice and neat, secure and providing stable data transfer (at USB 3.0) rates to the devices that I connected (obviously, I already knew that the source was USB 3.0).
My only concern is the build quality, and possible longevity, of the rotating connector. I've got this orientated, so that there's some support against the case, but I've fortunate that there's a 'flap' on my machine that allows for this. Given the plastic construction, and the way in which the source socket has to protrude, I'll need to wait and see just how well it stands up to regular use and movement.
So far though, a nice simple, in-expensive, solution, that meets my needs; offering me the functionality / expansion that I need, for both my Win/PC and Apple/iOS devices.

The product itself is OK, quite bulky, could be smaller on the rotation mechanism to sit it close to the device. Despite the name premium, I do not think it feels premium at all. But it also not expensive, so it is OK.
