No, I am aware of the port break-out.  For reference, this was my
train of thought:

My current 7port (2.0) is not adequate, I need more easy accessible
ports.  Oh yeah, I *just* built this new bad-arse machine that has all
those new-fangled USB 3.0 ports on it, I should probably go ahead and
get a hub that has a couple of those ports in it.  And... those two
nice new 24" monitors I spent all day yesterday mounting onto the
stand and positioning monitors and stand don't include a USB hub, so
when I pull those devices out, my 7 port needs to be a 12 port
minimum, and I really only have 1 free port at that configuration.

(Any I realize it only has 4amps of power, if it doesn't power the
phone/table devices, the 7 port does, but hoping to replace the 7 port
in the process).

Regards,

dtb
