Summary: Needed this for my daughter for her laptop. I have her an external ASUS Blu Ray burner for use with her laptop when she travels. This fills the bill nicely and powers the external Blu Ray player with no problem ( it requires two ports for adequate power). Works nicely.
Pros: Price is good. Quality built. Cheap but doesn't feel cheap. Works well with laptop and is easily packed away.
Cons: Connection cable to computer could stand to be an inch or so longer..
