3 out of 5 eggs3 USB ports?

Pros: Multiple Data cards can be read...easy to setup!

Cons: Takes two existing USB ports to connect.

Other Thoughts: NOTE: It takes two existing USB ports to connect...one for data transfer and the other seems to be power...so, yes, you get three USB ports on the hub...but ...two on your physical PC are being used. The net gain is only one USB port.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. I will have these comments fowarded to the product manager for his review.

5 out of 5 eggsIoGear GUH287

Pros: USB connector cable has two USB plugs to double the power to the hub. Also functions both as card reader AND USB hub.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I liked this one so much, I'm primarily looking at IOGEAR's 3.0 usb card readers for my new computer. I just wish they made a similar featured card readerfor USB 3.0 with extra plug for power as well as built in Hub.

1 out of 5 eggsnot as advertised

Pros: Worked fine out the box.

Cons: This is NOT a 3 port hub. It takes 2 USB ports on my system so really only adds a single port. I can't find anywhere in the description where it states that it requires 2 ports. Kind of a waste just to add one port.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. Only one of the USB connections is needed for data transfers. The other USB connections would be used to add power to the GUH287 hub. Some devises have more of a power draw and would require this hub to be powered. Again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

3 out of 5 eggsGood card reader, poor hub

Pros: Reads lots of card formats with one small device, fast data transfer compared to cable direct to camera.

STILL WORKING after almost a year of using at least once per week and riding around in a laptop bag (not transported daily), so at least no annoying early failure.

Cons: The cable is a Y-configuration, with two USB plugs (one marked "Power") and a short connector between them. To use it as a hub, both cables need to be plugged in, so the "3-port" hub actually gives you only one extra port. If you have a computer with its USB ports separated by more than a few cm, (e.g. some MacBook Pro models, where one port is on each side of the chassis), you will not be able to plug in both and the hub will not work.

Occasionally, cards do not mount. IIRC, this happens most often if I put the card in the reader, then plug in the cable. In any case, pulling the card out and reinserting it always seems to work. At first, I thought I had to plug in both cables to use the card reader as well, but no, it will read cards with only the data plug inserted.

Slightly confusing: If the user brainlessly plugs in only the Power plug rather than the data plug, it won't read cards. That is more of a meat-ware problem, so I can't blame IOGear

Other Thoughts: I would split my rating to 1-star for the hub and 4-star for the card reader. I really only wanted the card reader function, so I'm happy.

The cable is short, so bad if you want to use it on an under-desk tower, good if you just have it sitting next to a laptop and don't need a big tangle of wire.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The USB power connector does not need to be connected if you are using a low power devise such as a mouse, keyboard or a USB jump drive. The power connector would be used when connecting devises requiring more power such as a hard drive. To better service you and understand your set up, please feel to contact our customer support at 1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

1 out of 5 eggsHung on restart

Pros: Works if plugged in after computer starts up.

Cons: Hangs the computer on startup, usually when loading Windows. WinXP sp3.
Both cables must be removed and plugged in every time you use one of the card readers, as Windows removes all the card readers every time you safely eject one. This does not happen with the USB ports though.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to give me easily accessable USB ports on the front of my computer as the back ports are hard to access. As I can't leave it plugged in on reboot it is useless to me as I would keep having to plug it in in the back every restart.

Manufacturer Response:

First, thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The product should not behave as you described. Please contact our customer service at email: support@iogear.com and let us know in more detail on when and how you’re having this experience. We strive to ensure our customers are serviced with a properly working unit to exceed your satisfaction. Again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

1 out of 5 eggsCables WAY too short

Pros: It is inexpensive.

Cons: 1: Included cable is way too short for use on a tower machine that is on the floor. I was hoping to use this on my desk, but the cables don't even get me to the top of my case, let alone my desk.

2: It uses 2 usb ports with a custom cable that plugs into a single miniUSB port on the hub, so I can't even use a replacement cable that is longer. Sure, I could get 2 USB extension cables, but I don't think I should have to. Would a useful length of cable have cost that much?

3: When I plugged in 2 thumb drives and a memory card, only 1 side of the USB devices appeared in Windows (I think it was the 2 thumb drives). I tried again and got the same result. I unplugged the hub, pulled both thumb drives, and plugged it back in (so I only had the SD card) and it showed the 5 drives for the card reader.

Other Thoughts: Normally I have no complaints about IOGear's stuff. Sadly, in this case, I can find no compliment.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for the inconvenience. The GUH287 was originally designed for a lap top and the reason for the short cable length. The product should not behave as you described. Please contact our customer service at email: support@iogear.com and let us know in more detail on when and how you’re having this experience. We strive to ensure our customers are serviced with a properly working unit to exceed your satisfaction. Again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

2 out of 5 eggsUSB Hog

Pros: Small

Cons: Read the tech specifications for the 45-in-1 Card Reader - it supports iterations of SD cards, but that's about it. It also uses two USB ports on your computer, so you have a net gain of only 1 USB port.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for your feedback.
As you know, certain USB products such as printers, scanners or hard disk drives have high power consumption needs. Therefore, two USB ports are needed in order to provide enough power.
For most USB devices one port is sufficient. The product was designed as a mobile tool with energy saving features that pulls power from the USB port as opposed to having to carry another AC adapter with you.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Please feel free to contact our customer support at
1-866-946-4327 or email us: support@iogear.com
Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks just fine.

Pros: Does what it's supposed to!

Cons: The only reason I'm giving it 4 eggs is design. I don't like having ports on all sides of the device, I would rather have all the inputs in front.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Small and Light

Pros: It is very small. I have small hands and it fits in the palm of my hand. 2"x4" 1/2" long. Works with my compact flash II cards. Needed because my HP DV7 laptop does not support compact flash media. The usb cord is 12" long. Has 3 usb ports and can do just about any kind of media card you might have. Small is handy, cause I can tote this anywhere in my bag.

Cons: Not sure if this is a con, but it uses two usb ports to power itself. So if you thought you would gain a port, you wont.

Other Thoughts: Replaced because my iRocks media reader died after less than a year of use. Looking for longer use from this one.
