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. Super easy operation--just "plug and go"

Works fine

Phillip D., Newegg
27 August 2009
  • Summary: Looks good in my Thinkpad, exposed plastic is a good match for the black.
  • Pros: Works fine, no surprises in Ubuntu 8.10. I use an externally powered USB hub for powering a HDD in a USB powered external enclosure, which works. The HDD does not work without the AC powered hub, nor did I expect it to. Worked with USB Card reader, mouse, and flash drive.
  • Cons: Nothing so far.

YAY! USB 2.0 on IBM T23

Quentin T., Newegg
13 August 2009
  • Summary: I'll be checking Linux support sometime. This laptop has the older version of PCMCIA. It also has a Wifi card just below it sucking up power. The PCMCIA card bus that I have can only source +5v @ 500mA per card, so I can't use this to power the HDD.
  • Pros: Just YAY!! Fast USB 2.0 on older laptops. I'm using this to run A 4gig Readyboost USB sticK to try and make appication load faster in Win 7. It does well, and even allowed me to put a self powered hdd on the other port to act as a swap drive. Plenty of bandwidth, and really shows what win 7 is ab...
  • Cons: Non that are the card's fault.

Not happy!

OMKAR K., Newegg
26 June 2009
  • Summary: 2 stars cozz I got one more extra port, I use it for either Bluetooth dongle for listening to music or connect my wireless mouse (wireless mouse performance is better when connected directly to my laptop USB port).
  • Pros: Gets me only 1 additional USB port (not 2).. nothing else..
  • Cons: Does not work if I connect 2 different wireless USB adapters (for my wireless mouse and Bluetooth dongle), hardly recognizes my WD 320GB portable hard drive, and if my WD gets recognized data transfer rate is too poor. Any combination of parallel connection of 2 USB accessories did not work well ...
