Pros:
Easy to use. WinXP plug n play. No driver needed.
Cons:
Stupid design, non self powered. 4-port USB extension PCMCIA card needs external power from a USB port???? How to get enough power for 4 ports!!! It is not design as what printed on the box, ouput = 500mA per port.
Other:
I wish DX remove this products from the list. It will not help if you are lack of USB port. Need at least 1 usb port to function or use external supply. Laptop is portable, not a desktop computer. How to find a plug when I'm troubleshooting customer machine.
Bottomline:
Only useful if you use your laptop as a Desktop computer then you can plug the card to external supply. I will throw into my dust bin.
