    posted by AlysonPW on 05/18/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The product is very well packaged. The greatest advantage of this item is the fact that it allows you to add 4 USB ports (despite of only 2 of most products). If you make an analysis with the cost/benefit relation, the cost of each USB port is lower in this...
    Cons:
    I think that there is no con for this item, all of it was satisfying for my needs.

    Easy to use

    posted by canwendy on 05/01/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Easy to use. Just insert it and my Toshiba Laptop recognized it. It comes with a jack to plug into an usb but I am not sure what the jack is for as I can still use it without the jack.
    Cons:
    It sticks out a little more than I like but it not that big of a deal.

    Just what I needed

    posted by krisje8 on 12/02/2008 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Here come the obvious pro's: - Gives you USB2.0 on a laptop with USB1.1 (yes, the full USB2.0, not a tiny bit slower) - Works under Linux! It was known it would work with windows, but I tested it on Linux and it worked there as well. See Other Thoughts for ...
    Cons:
    - Slightly big, but you can go for the 2port card which is smaller.
