I need a hub that will support about 80 mb/s for 7200 rpm HDDs and hopefully up to 500 mb/s for external SSDs. ( and should be powered for multiple external drives )

Actually I know one which will support the 80 mb/s transfer but was wondering whether these is on that will support 500 mb/s for my SSD which is SanDisk Ultra II and runs at about 420 mb/s when connected directly to the PC via USB 3.0

This is the one (https://www.amazon.com/Anker-AH111-4-Port-Adapter-Chipset/dp/B005QWY3PU/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1474313743&sr=8-14&keywords=anker+usb+3.0+hub) I use they also make a 7 port one haven't tried it. Don't expect top performance from an SSD through USB 3.0 80 mbs no problem my older Samsung 830 256 gB was getting in the 200 mbs range.

don't think so, the manufacturer is not advertising it as SSD speeds compatible I mean they say 625 mbps but then it gives 40 - 80 or so... 200 mbps is nice though if you achieved that, but there must be one supporting the full ssd speed - about 400 mbps

I don't thing any device has through put at max USB speed or USB 3.0 theoretical top speeds don't seem to be realistic in the real world.
