Where to start.... First off, don t buy this, lol. The shortcomings of this product are so severe, i don t even know how a company could release this piece of junk. For one, the USB cord that comes with this is extremely short. Only about 12" long. That means forget about placing it on your actual desk where 99.9% of people needing a USB hub / card reader would want to put it. Unless you are planning on setting it on top of your computer, this isn t going to work in anyway for you. Next, and this is unbelievable, you have to plug in two different USB cables to hook this up to your computer. That s right, the included cable that comes with the unit is split like a "Y" on the end that hooks into your computer, and you have to plug both connectors into your computer in order for it to work. That means that this "USB hub" takes up two USB connectors, and gives you 3. 3-2=1. You get a net gain of one extra USB connector! Some USB hub huh? If there is anything positive to say about it, the card reader does seem to work. I tried it with a microsdhc card and an old school 64mb CF card, and both worked fine. But my goodness, what a piece of junk. Going back ASAP!

I wanted a card reader with additional USB ports and this product was just what I was looking for.

+ It is small

- The USB cable provided is too short to be of much use (hence the 4 stars).

I am using this unpowered so the 3 usb ports on the device are available for me to use. If I needed this device to be powered I would have to use the Y-splitter part of the USB cable to connect it to 2 usb ports on my PC (just as I would expect from any other un-powered usb device). I am quite happy not to have to find space in my power strip for yet another plug frankly!

In summary, it works well so far - it s inexpensive - the only issue is the length of the USB cable provided.

4 of 5 Stars!
