Excerpt: The product works well, but the design is not great. I have to fiddle around with SD cards for a little bit before I can get it to work. You not only have to flip the SD card upside down, but the slot is very close to the table top (less than 1/4"), so you need one hand to hold the card, and another to hold the hub. It does work, but design was a bit of an afterthought.
Pros: While it was working it was great, lots of extra USB ports plus a great card reader.
Cons: After a little more than a year the card reader portion has quit working. I have tried everything to fix it. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, tried different usb ports. Nothing worked, the card reader portion is dead but the usb hub portion still works.
Pros: Everything you need from a USB hub/Memory Card Reader.
Cons: Stopped working, I barley used it and didn't even notice that it stopped working until I tried to put in an SD Card. thats when I noticed all the drive letters it used to have just disappeared. Reinstalling didn't help. No clue what happened.. The 2 or 3 times I used it before that had no problems though.
Pros: Ran out of power and needed more USB juice so I ordered this at a stupid price with no expectations. This box delivers, and has become my "go to" device for all temp USB connections -- use it daily.
Summary: This thing is big and heavy, uses an external power source, and from others it fries easy if you are not grounded when plugging stuff into it. I thought I could replace my usb hub and card reader with one device, but it was larger and heavier than my hub, card reader and mouse. At $40 it is not a great deal by any means. It needs to be smaller, lighter and then I would buy one again. Also include a micro usb cord and you are on a roll.
