Having to charge your ps3 controllers via usb, then the ps3 eye, then the move controllers -- all connect via usb to the console. 2 usb ports are simply not enough for the advanced user. If you are connecting a pendrive / external usb port or using more than 2 devices sometimes at once - then this part is extremely useful. All 4 usb ports work well, the card reader connects easily and fits well. I have ttried it on a CECH-300x system, and the hard drive LED is still visible after it is attached (it does not have a wifi activity LED).
The only con is the build quality. I have tried the SD card reader part of it as soon as I got it. It immediately recognized my SD card from a camera, and showed the pictures on it. However while scrolling thru the pics, it just stopped - I took the card out, pug it back it, and it never again recognized the SD card. I have tried other SD cards as well, that work with an USB card reader, none of them are recognized anymore. I expect it is due to the usual not really high build quality - so maybe it is an easy fix of some loose wires inside or similar.
Like I said, on mine the SD card reader part failed almost immediately. I will not send it back because of this since all the USB ports are working and that is why it was important to me. I will probably take it apart and try to fix the card reader portion. I think it is an easy fix as usual.
Get it if you are not satisfied with only 2 USB ports on your ps3 slim :)
