Default Experience w Komplete Kontrol A series Keyboards?

I'm thinking of buying the NI Komplete Kontrol A49 keyboard. If anyone has any experience I'd love to hear how it plays with PT 2018? Any issues? I'm mostly in NI world, so this makes sense for me, though I assume it plays with other VSTs? Another concern is, I'm using an Anker non-powered USB hub. I've used an M-Audio Keystation mini 32 on it -- it only puts out 100 Ma current, so no problems. Anybody know what the Komplete Kontrol A49 puts out? I'm thinking as long as its under 300 Ma I'm fine.

I don't have the definitive answer, but thought I would add stuff for consideration.... I use the older KK S49 and it works quite nicely. Looking at the new version and the price kind of scares me(how do they make that so cheap?). FWIW, if you buy from a dealer like Sweetwater, and can return if you hate it, then its worth checking out. The older version has its own power supply, so USB current would not be an issue
