Everything is satisfactual 06/14/2010
I'm using it to dump files from my cell phone and camera, and, compared to transfer rates when I use bluetooth for the one and direct USB connection for the other, this thing is blazing fast. It fits perfectly in my 3.5 slot. And it's is a hermetically sealed, very solidly built metal box, leaving nothing exposed to air or dust.
Blue LED on front is always on, and this sucker is bright. The LED indicating that a drive is connected is kind of an ugly, like an over-cooked-vegetable green. Memory cards stick out a bit from the receiving ports -- about 3/4 of my CF card projects, which makes me nervous.
The USB cable that connects from the box to the motherboard isn't removable, which I suppose means that it isn't replaceable. I'm not sure whether this is a negative. Included USB port couldn't power an iPod.
I haven't had the device for very long, so I can't comment on longevity, but for the moment I'm very pleased.
