  • Good for what it does

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Good unit for adding USB ports to an older Laptop,
    Had a older 2-port card that finally gave out and was
    looking for a replacement. DX offered this one with the
    power usb lead. With PCMCIA cards going the way of the Floppy, and getting a little more life out of my laptop
    it is a great price for what you need.

    Cons:

    Was able to use it for Card readers, and MP3 players
    but had trouble with Camcorders and Printers. Seemed
    not to like Data hungry connections. Also heats up much
    more than my old 2-port one. Was hit and miss with a Bluetooth dongle also.

    OtherThoughts:

    Seems to have good speed when things are
    cooperating, Heat build-up is a concern so I leave
    it out when not in use. would not plug in a USB
    coolers,gloves,floodlights or whatever powerhungry
    USB. connections

    Bottomline:

    Good price for what it is, paid 3 times the amount
    years ago for a 2 port one, I find it great to use
    for extra USB Ports DX came through again
    with its price and value.
