3 out of 5 eggsWorked well for a while

Pros: It does everything I need. Powered USB ports plus all the card slots I need. Worked well, for a while. Now the data rate of the card reader has diminished to where it is unusable.

Cons: Short life

Other Thoughts: I will probably buy another, simply because it is what I need. I'll cross my fingers the next one last longer than around 1 year.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsQuit working after about a year

Pros: While it was working it was great, lots of extra USB ports plus a great card reader.

Cons: After a little more than a year the card reader portion has quit working. I have tried everything to fix it. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, tried different usb ports. Nothing worked, the card reader portion is dead but the usb hub portion still works.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsStopped Working

Pros: Everything you need from a USB hub/Memory Card Reader.

Cons: Stopped working, I barley used it and didn't even notice that it stopped working until I tried to put in an SD Card. thats when I noticed all the drive letters it used to have just disappeared. Reinstalling didn't help. No clue what happened.. The 2 or 3 times I used it before that had no problems though.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. Please email us with a phone number to contact you at support@iogear.com. We will be more than happy to contact you with quality service and process an RMA. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet little box

Pros: Ran out of power and needed more USB juice so I ordered this at a stupid price with no expectations. This box delivers, and has become my "go to" device for all temp USB connections -- use it daily.

Cons: None so far.

1 out of 5 eggsLiked it at first but it died

Pros: It worked for a while, I liked the slots for SD cards, etc.

Cons: It died after several months and was not worth paying postage to get fixed/replaced.

Other Thoughts: Will use it to recharge my iPhone and other USB batteries but that is all it is good for.

4 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: USB ports on side and front

Cons: All the memory card slots show up as drives even when there is no card in them. Not that way I would have done it..

Other Thoughts: It was free with my keyboard, replaced an old Belkin USB hub. I feel this one is of better quality but can't understand the need to show a drive even when there is no card in it.

1 out of 5 eggsFragile inner components.

Pros: All in one functionality.

Cons: Short life even with normal use.
Static or no static, if it cannot last as long as other
similar devices, then its quality is of a low end product
which should have a price to match the shipping it takes
to return.
Since its priced far higher, then its an unethical business
transaction to buy.
If you are really sorry for my inconvience, then send me a refund.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, lots of functionality

Pros: Supports SDHC cards, almost everything you can think of.
USB ports on 2 sides--easy access!
Powered.
Low Cost!

Cons: It would be nice to see a light come on when you insert a card.

Other Thoughts: This is a great all-in-one card reader and USB hub solution. I've owned it now for a few weeks, but it's already gotten lots of use. It instantly reads my SDHC cards from my video camera and responds quickly to any USB devices. I really love having USB slots on the front AND the side. This is a thing is a steal at (on sale?) $20!!

2 out of 5 eggsGreat idea. Defective design

Pros: Everything is in one box! I mounted this to my desk so that I have USB and card reader access ports all within arm's reach. Perfect for those that frequently plug in thumb drives or memory cards from their digital cameras.

Cons: The product does not last more than one year. I initially purchased this in August of 2010 from a retailer and am currently on my second RMA. At $10 a piece to ship it back to IOGEAR it is starting to become more cost effective to buy another manufacturer's product. Stay away from this piece of e-waste!

Other Thoughts: IOGEAR will probably reply to this review with their canned response for me to email them blah blah blah but the fact of the matter is, there is a design flaw with this product that causes its electrical components to stop functioning within one year. I think the other reviewer is onto something. Improper grounding within the unit causes static to zap the unit dead. I am not going to wear a grounding strip just to use this device as was suggested by IOGEAR's response to another review. I have other card readers that do not have this problem.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The GUH286 carries a 3 year warranty. Since this is your 2nd RMA please email us with a phone number to contact you at support@iogear.com. We will be more than happy to contact you with quality service and process an RMA. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
