Summary: This is a "plug and play" and requires no downloads or program installation by the consumer as it is self contained. Once plugged into USB 2.0 or preferably USB 3.0 the self contained program is automatically set up and instantly recognized by system. I used double stick heavy tape to secure to top of my enclosure which makes it very easy to plug and unplug various devices.
Summary: It quit working within one day. I'm not sure if it was because it is just for folks with computers with 3.0 USBs instead of 2.0. I have 2.0 but this unit was supposed to be backward compatible so it should have worked but not sure if this was the reason at all or if it was just defective. I bought it thinking that when I upgraded to a new computer someday with 3.0 USBs that I'd be proactive in having this unit already.
Summary: product works very well as expected. My only complaint is that it is almost to light in weight. I used velcro to fasten the unit to a flat surface to keep it from sliding around when using with flash drives. Otherwise, very good product and value for the money.
