Needed! – 4-Port USB HUB with SD Card Reader for PS3 SLIM Reviews

posted by gutterball on 04/11/2011 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Works on 3.60 firmware!!
- Provides 2 more needed USB ports and an SD card reader.
- Fit is snug and colour matches.
- Buzz sensor, Move camera, Singstar Mics and a charge cord all worked at the same time!!
Cons:
- It's a snug fit, so I wouldn't suggest taking it off and putting it back on too many times.
- It is working on 3.60 firmware, but who knows what future firmware will do to this hub.
Other:
- I was leary about getting this since the new Sony TOS forbids anyone from using 3rd party equipment with some pretty serious consequences if you do and I wasn't sure if the 3.60 firmware disables 3rd party hubs. But with all that being said, WTF was Sony thinking only putting TWO USB slots on the PS3?!?! Anyway, this is working nicely on both my PS3's on 3.60 firmware. I will be buying another one so I don't have to move this around.
Bottomline:
I'm getting another one for myself and another one for my buddy.
