1 out of 5 eggslights & USB work... nothing else

Pros: lights & USB work

Cons: Card readers are MIA.

Other Thoughts: I had a similar multi-reader with USB in my machine. After 4 years of frequent use, the SD card reader failed. Should be a simple replacement, right? hmmph. I had to open both sides of the case, remove waayy too many screws, disconnect a bunch of cables to get the old motherboard plug out of the machines, then put the new one in. And guess what? Just like the old one, the lights and USB work, and the card readers don't. Am I gonna send it back and replace it? Too much like work!! I'll just chalk up the 11 bucks to "lesson learned", and get an external reader for my most common cards.

4 out of 5 eggsIt Works, for now

Pros: its a 5 card + 1 USB 2.0 internal hub for 11 bucks that you don't have to connect to your power supply and lets you have more than one thing plugged in at a time despite only having one USB to motherboard connector. it also comes with a silver and a white/gray face-plate if it doesn't match your case in its default black color.

Cons: its a 5 card + USB internal hub for 11 bucks, so you get what you pay for. the build quality is questionable, the hubs read/write light is far to bright, its so bright i cut off a small piece of electrical tape to cover the lights. the lights also bleed through the CF/CF II dock because they didn't put any walls in-between the different slots. (See below, the hub i got is different than the one they advertise but still has the same functionality.) The read/write light also stays on constantly regardless of if your computer is on or off.

Other Thoughts: this is a minor thing for me but as some of the other reviewers have mentioned the hub they shipped looks different than the one they advertise.(a picture of what mine looks like with mentioned tape http://i.imgur.com/9BEjDPB.png) first off the read/write lights are on the other side of the hub under where the USB 2.0 is in their picture and the lights are horizontal rather than vertical and both are red. On the top row of mine the ports go in this order from left to right. first you have the USB 2.0, then a T-Flash port, then an XD bay and a SD/MMC port on the right of the hub which has been combined into a single port rather than the weird double wide one they show. on the bottom row of the drive from left to right of the hub you have the read/write lights a CF/CF II dock and a MS/MS Duo port.

I've also seen that a few reviews have said that their hub stopped working after a few weeks, if mine fails i will update my review.

4 out of 5 eggsWrong Item listed in the pictures

Pros: -It was dirt cheap i paid 10.99.
-It runs 5 cards all at once and uses a single connection.
-I never used the face plates but they are a nice touch.
-So far everything seems to be working perfect :).

Cons: -Different style than i ordered. The one pictured has four slots and a USB plug and mine has five slots and a USB plug. I don't know if its a con or a pro since its actually better than the one i ordered haha.
-It puts 5 new drives under "My Computer" AT ALL TIMES. Even if the reader is empty it still shows up drive letters for five drives, which isnt a big deal but i though it should e mentioned.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy this again. I just needed something with a CF and SD card spot and this was spot on. Bytecc seems to make pretty decent stuff especially for the price.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Can read 5 cards at once, allowing copying from one card type to another. I haven't tried this, but all slots have their own drive letter. Has a front USB port

2 out of 5 eggsNot working with Win7, but works with Ubuntu

Pros: Like having the extra USB port on front of PC.

Cons: SD reader stopped working with Windows 7. I decided to boot into Ubuntu and it works there. Must be a driver issue with Windows??
