This was the easiest install I've ever had. Plugged it in to my Yoga 910 and Windows made about 3 "device connected" noises, and it was good to go. I had 3 USB drives and an HDMI cable plugged in at once with no issues. Oh, and aside from the HDMI port, you can use it on USB-C android phones too. , and while it offers no cushion, I'm confident it'd protect this hub from any backpack-carry damage.
