Zalman ZM-MH200 HUB 
 
Review: Zalman ZM-MH200 HUB.



Test Bench:
• Western Digital Cavier Black 500GB / 32MB Cache
• PNY 8GB USB Flash Drive, and 8GB SD Card
• EVGA X58 SLI Motherboard
• Red eSATA JMicron JMB362 rear I/O port
• Black ICH10 Intel SATA ports
• HD Tune 2.55 - Hard Disk Utility

First I tested the hub using the red eSATA port on the back of the E758 Motherboard


Just for kicks I ran the same test again to show any differences


3rd I hooked the hub up to a standard SATA port, Intel ICH10 black internal


4th I ran a test with the hard drive hooked directly to the ICH10 SATA port, Without the Zalman ZM-MH200.
This shows us the differece in speeds of a Hard Drive installed directly inside a PC, and using the hub.
Speeds are the same in both cases, respectively.


The last 2 tests are for the USB 2.0 devices

8GB PNY Optima Pro Attache Flash Drive, in the usb port of the ZM-MH200 hub

8GB PNY Optima SDHC HD Class 4 card , in the SD SDHC port of the ZM-MH200 hub
It shows up as Generic 7GB Storage Device

The results:
• all USB devices opperate @ approx: 20MBPS, which is high speed USB2.0
• The Zalman ZM-MH200 hub opperates at the same speed as an internal drive.
• both HDDs uses the 1 eSATA cable (eg.. Port Multiplier) 1 eSATA 2 HDDs
• USB, SD, Micro SD uses the USB 2.0 cable
• Power Cord must be used for all features

This unit works great, and I did'nt find any cons.
The unit looks great! and fits nicely on my desk.
