    Hello everyone,

    I apologise in advance for my writing, I use a translator ^^.
    I now own an ultimate blackwidow from 2013 and an imperator mouse from 2012 which still work very well.

    I do a lot of telecommuting so I unplug and replug, keyboard/smile, on my professional and personal PCs.

    I recently bought a usb switch but the keyboard was not recognized, it turned on and off right away because it seems to me that it requires more power to work.
    I plugged the usb switch on the power but I think the hardware is not of good quality as it hasn't changed anything.
    The mouse, on the other hand, worked perfectly.

    Would you have a USB switch for a mechanical keyboard to recommend?

    I thank you for it

    Hey new Insider,

    You are not wrong~~
    There are some active threads, where Insiders and non-members have issues connecting their RAZER peripherals to a USB Multi hub / switch.

    I connect 3 RAZER peripherals to a single USB 2.0 Multi hub. I encounter rare occasions where my RAZER peripherals disconnect without any reason. It just happens.

    Temporary fix is to just unplug and re-plug the USB hub, permanent fix is to connect each RAZER peripherals to its own USB port on the PC.

    RAZER continue to focus on hyperspeed wireless like BW V3 Pro, so that RAZER peripherals all work by connecting to a single wireless USB dongle / adapter.

    Well my USB hub is something that I had for almost 15 years.

    It just says
    USB 2.0 High Speed
    Ultra Mini 4-Port Hub

    No specific manufacturer name, S/N faded

    I have not encountered any disconnection for last 2 weeks

    Just noticed I have 4 RAZER peripherals connected

    BlackWidow Stealth 2014
    Basilisk Ultimate (Wireless mouse dock)
    Goliathus Extended Chroma
    Kraken Tournament Edition

    I'm not a RAZER electronics specialist

    But I am thinking, the RAZER peripherals work via constant back and forward link with Synapse. The USB multi hub becomes a bottleneck, that sometimes it cannot handle all the back and forward sets of instructions, causing the RAZER peripherals to disfunction, or disconnect from the Synapse.

    Like for example, the USB multi hub should only be used for connecting basic PC peripherals (non-high tech), and not for transferring large batch of files. Because the USB output from PC is trying to handle 3 - 4 data transfers at the same time, it will face a bottleneck, which eventually cause the data transfer to crash in the process.

    But so far, my USB 2.0 hub have not caused too much hassle on my RAZER peripherals. Lucky me I guess.

    Okay so today, I faced a severe dysfunction on my USB 2.0 Multi hub

    Symptoms~~
    • Mouse pointer was not moving
    • Keyboard keys were not working
    Now I want to test by connecting the following three peripherals
    • Kiyo
    • Goliathus Extended Chroma
    • Kraken TE
    These peripherals are not used for controlling my computer, connected mouse and keyboard to individual USB ports.

    usb hub 3.0 is doing more better smooth expirience. with 2.0 sometimes when ur system running a lot of background it wont detect the device feels like on and off.

    I wish I can agree with you, we all know USB 3.0 has faster R&W speed performance than USB 2.0
    I have a 4 way USB 3.0 Multi hub that is doing a worst job compared to my USB 2.0 Multi hub.

    I don't understand~~~

    Many Insiders are looking for Multi USB Hub solutions, some do get lucky and some are still searching and wondering.
    My guess, the USB multi hub becomes a bottleneck, that sometimes it cannot handle all the back and forward sets of instructions, causing the RAZER peripherals to disfunction, or disconnect from the Synapse.

    Which is why I'm focusing on the Hyperspeed wireless hub technology

    Okay so it has been two weeks since my last update!
    By connecting 3 non-control RAZER peripherals to my USB 2.0 Multi hub, I have not experienced any drops in connectivity or dysfunction between my peripherals and Synapse.

    Even when I use my Kiyo and Kraken TE for sound and mic through webchat, not a single fluctuant.

    My control peripherals (mouse and keyboard) continues to work without a hiccup.
    Well once my Basilisk ULT enters idle mode, it does take less than a second to start responding, but that is good enough for me.

    My 15 year old High Speed USB 2.0 Multi hub is good
    Hyperspeed wireless technology review on its way soon or later~~~

    Hey Insiders

    So from my last update on 20210126; I noticed today, all my RAZER peripherals have lost connectivity with Synapse 3.0 (the ones connected to the USB 2.0 multi hub)

    I tried restarting the Synapse, which did not fix the issue
    The fix was to unplug and re-plug the USB 2.0 multi hub

    It has been just little less of 31 days since my peripherals connected to a USB 2.0 multi hub caused an issue of dysconnectivity from Synapse 3.0.

    Whether I want to go with the multi hub option which @-Mr.Nobody- have suggested is a question. But I love my RAZER peripherals so I think I'm gonna be alright with my current setup, until I have collected enough silver to move onto Hyperspeed technology.

    Hey Insiders

    I have upgraded my motherboard from Gigabyte Z390 Gaming X to Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Ultra.
    The Aorus Ultra comes with USB 3.1 Gen 1 and Gen 2 ports

    I'll be testing my USB 2.0 Multi hub with the following peripherals connected and give you an update once per month or times when I encounter a fault.
    • Kiyo V1
    • Kraken TE
    • Goliathus Extended Chroma
    • USB powered desk fan
