Pros: Simple, elegant, and easy to use; good looking and feels well built. Good port selection with a card reader.
Cons: Using this with a Mac mini 2018 connected to a TB 3port. Gets surprisingly warm powering a 1TB LaCie Rugged USB 3 drive; not sure it should be getting to this temperature, but could be normal behavior considering the PD 3.0 circuit support.
Simply inserting SD card sometimes "knocks out" the USB 3 drive that is mounted on my desktop, triggering an error that the USB drive was disconnected incorrectly, without properly ejecting the drive; I find this alarming and am pretty sure this is not an expected behavior... as this can cause data issues on the USB 3 drive.
Overall Review: I have used ioGear products a long time - first one I suspect has a serious design flaw for peripheral connection & management. Not sure I can keep this product and risk losing data during general use case.
Pros: Works with Mac mini 2018
Cons: None that I could find.
