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

    Pros:
    One of the fastest card readers I have. I bought several sdhc ones from ebay all claiming to be high speed but most maxed out at 12Mb/s this one does 20-30Mb/s with the same card.
    Cons:
    Very wide blocks adjacent usb ports. no extension cable Colour seems to be a lottery. (I got a blue one, not a real problem)

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Works OOB with Ubuntu 8.04, just plug in the usb receiver and off you go. The email, web page, close, volume & mouse all work without installing any driver. Not tried all the functions but only wanted it for a media center unit.
    Cons:
    No batteries supplied ;-( Quite a large remote, not a problem for me though!
