Literally plug and play using Linux Ubuntu Feisty Fawn. No driver installation required! Ports are totally flush with the notebook, hence they even look like they are part of the notebook. Cardbus 32bit performance is good, and having 2 additional USb 2.0 ports is really handy! The flush mount design it novel and I have not found any other cardbus USB2.0 that mounts flush in the socket!
no reals cons, just the USB sockets may feel a little flimsy, hence you must treat with care and not abuse it like you would a normal USB port. Also it may not work with powered hard drives without additional external 5v power source plugged into the auxiliary power socket
This product is ideal for those who wants additional USB 2.0 ports on their slim notebooks which usually have one or two built in USB ports
Hey it works in Linux without any additional drivers. considering my distro of ubuntu is rather old and no longer supported, newer Ubuuntu distros should have not problems either.
