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

Pros:
- Allows you to read most memory card types - Takes power from the PC so the USB hub output is fully capable - Nice, compact design - 4 Ports!
Cons:
- Doesn't read Compact Flash - Mine has a manufacturing problem with the way the SD Card slot was mounted.
Other:
The PC I bought this for always had problems with devices that draw extra power, often rebooting when I plugged them in (side note: I just found I need to recap the MoBo, maybe related?). But also, it always required me to use two USB ports to power external hard drives. With this card reader / hub it no longer does.
Bottomline:
I am planning to buy more of these to upgrade other computers. It's really good for the price.
