Slowly loosing ports

Joseph P., Newegg
14 December 2008
  • Pros: 6 ports and memory card readers.
  • Cons: Flimsy case. All memory card readers stopped working. I am slowly loosing USB ports. They are going one at a time. When one port stops working, I move it to one that is working. After it breaks, I move it to another. I am down to 3 working USB ports. Its a slow and painful death for this USB hub....

Excellent

Erik K., Newegg
1 December 2008
  • Summary: I don't want to say it is a CON because it could be something up with my system for some reason, but my ipod stopped charging/syncing through the USB HUB all of a sudden, but I haven't had any other problems with any other devices.
  • Pros: Works Great! I was unsure if it would work with my MacBook Pro, but it does and extremely well. I have programmed several CF cards with it, read/written to many SD cards, and I have two external hard drives, and printer connected to it with no problems.
  • Cons: None (see Other Thoughts)

Card readers work only at USB 1 speeds, not USB 2.0

Mark T., Newegg
22 August 2008
  • Summary: If you prefer not to have the additional drive letters for your card readers slots appear in your windows explorer you may disable the individual drives that you do not have memory cards for in Device Manager.
  • Pros: Enough weight so desk "creep" is reduced. I use a patch of velco underneath to lock it in position. 6 USB connectors.
  • Cons: Card readers data transfer work at USB 1 speeds only. Example: SD card plugged into hub and attached to laptop takes about 8 minutes to transfer data. Same SD card plugged into built card reader on same laptop transfer in under 45 seconds. Iogear indicates card reader works at USB 1 specs but doe...

Cannot read SD under Ubuntu

Anonymous, Newegg
13 July 2008
  • Summary: If mine is not a uniquely defective device, I recommend to stay away if you paln connecting it to Ubuntu. Have no idea about windows... could be working working just fine with Micro$oft products...
  • Pros: - Looks great - Horizontal/vertical standing - External P.Supply
  • Cons: The device can be identified by the Ubuntu host controller and read SD/MMC cards _sometimes_. In most cases reading writing will fail, making the card unusable (required reformatting), and mess up the host usb device drivers pretty bad, which will require system restart. USB hub somewhat works, b...

Cheap quality, expensive cost

michael k., Newegg
30 May 2007
  • Summary: Overall cheap build quality. I don't recommend the product.
  • Pros: Multifunction
  • Cons: Drivers are required for the memory card readers. Drive letters are always assigned for all four unused readers - quite annoying and cluttered for the OS.

Actually pretty great

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: The device works great. The 6 port hub is great, I have a dvd burner and external hard drive hooked up on it and the dvd burns fine from the ahrd drive with no problem. It is true it doesn't start up till Windows does, so no your keyboard won't work till then, but your not suppost to have a USB...
  • Pros: 1. 6 port USB 2.0 Hub 2. Card reader reads everything I've thrown at it
  • Cons: Like everyone else says, the stand is less then desirable. My solution was putting a little poster putty on the bottom and now i have no problems at all.

Works great

Kai C., Newegg
13 July 2006
  • Pros: The card reader. This is the only card reader I have that can read 4GB A-Data SD card.
  • Cons: When fully plugged in with USB cable, it falls backwards. Vertical stand is useless. I cannot plug in a dvd burner and ext. drive to it at the same time and have the burner buring files from the ext. drive.

Good idea, but mediocre execution

Anonymous, Newegg
8 July 2006
  • Summary: Next time around, I'll just buy a seperate USB hub and card reader. I suggest that you do the same.
  • Pros: Having a combined USB hub and card reader is a neat idea, in principle. There's 6 USB ports, which is fairly generous compared to the 4 ports you get in most hubs. The vertical stand is also useful -- again, in principle.
  • Cons: None of the USB ports work until the operating system has booted, so you can't access the BIOS or any boot menus if your keyboard is attached to the hub. The hub will periodically just stop working and require me to reseat the power connector. The vertical stand is so flimsy that it can barely ke...

Very poor quality

James P., Newegg
17 June 2006
  • Summary: It would be worth it if it actually worked. Do yourself a favor and buy something else.
  • Pros: USB hub function works; and the idea is great.
  • Cons: The card readers show up in windows but don't work. Their driver/utility also doesn't recognize the device. I bought it with the intention to save desk space, but this really poorly build flaky.
