    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    inline, no parts sticking out

    Cons:

    I pulled the card out once when I tried to remove a plugged in cable. Usb connectors are a tight fit.
    I don't understand the maximum power limit for the USB ports. The use of the supplied cable to add power from another USB port is unclear to me. How much did it have in the first place? (a USB soundcard stick worked)

    OtherThoughts:

    Nice to see an alternative to the big and clunky looking pccards with all kinds of connectors.
    This slim card can be left in the laptop card bay without any problems.
    It work after hybernating (with xp).

    Bottomline:

    nice to be able to 'replace' bad onboard usb ports wihtou using dongles or having connectors stick out.
