Great Little Device

David W. Hall, Amazon
28 August 2010
  • Summary: After trying lesser (meaning cheaper) cards, I tried this one. It works GREAT! Only thing I would add would be to package it with an external power source which is needed to operate most attached hard drives.

Nees a separate power supply

jndaigle, Amazon
11 May 2009
  • Summary: This works fine on a Mac Powerbook G4. The hitch is that you need the extra power supply if you are using a device that is supplied a large amount of power from the USB port. For example, a USB disk drive, such as a GO drive, needs the external power supply. If you plug in a device that draws a lot of power, it will lock up your machine and you will have to reboot. The power supply is OADB-0705-261G. You can ask IOGear about this.

IOGEAR Hi-Speed USB 2.0 CardBus (GPU202)

GintGotham "Val", Amazon
10 March 2009
  • Summary: Be sure you have reflected significantly before purchasing this product. The only things that I can use it for are my flash disks. And it speeds up the data transfer. For anything else, you MUST have the power adapter (which does not come with the cardbus). Even with the power adapter, this bus would not support a printer. Otherwise, it works fine.

Great product!

Robert Yi, Amazon
23 September 2008
  • Summary: Great product! The quality is superb, and, I believe people only complain that it doesn't work because the device can only provide so much phantom power to your peripherals. However, it does function with devices requiring less power, like a wireless keyboard/mouse combination or an externally powered ext. hard drive. Both work flawlessly! It does protrude a bit, but that's pretty expected.

Working Fine

TooManyIDs, Amazon

  • Summary: Some of the comments have information that is not accurate, stated as if it applies to all machines with Intel chipsets. I'm running Win'XP w/SP3. IBM ThinkPad T40 with an Intel 82801 chipset. The IOGEAR installed fine and is working with a Seagate 500GB USB2 drive, with absolutely no issues. Hope that helps others considering this device.

Terrible Device

Michael J. Titera, Amazon
18 May 2008
  • Summary: First off, it's bulky so it won't fit in my dual PCMIA slot if I am using another PCMIA card at the same time. Second, if you are going to use this device with an iPod, you need to buy the power cord (not included) for this device. Otherwise, it does not provide enough power to interact with your iPod.

Great Product

Margaret M. Patterson, Amazon
9 April 2008
  • Summary: I bought the IOGEAR Cardbus for my Dell Inspiron 8100 computer (three-plus years old) because the computer's USBs were all kaput. This product works flawlessly; I've had no problems, and my Dell is working like a champ. (Or at least it's working as well as it ever could.) I highly recommend this product.

Works great with Mac OS X

Matthew Dittrich, Amazon
19 February 2008
  • Summary: I didn't see any reviews here that addressed Mac compatibility, so I thought I'd toss my hat in the ring.... Prior to OS X 10.2.8, the GPU202 worked, but only at USB 1.1 speeds. Not very helpful, since I already have built-in USB 1.1 ports on my TiBook 400. I then installed the drivers for this device, and got mixed results.
