IOGEAR GUH287 3-Port USB 2.0 Hub and 45-in-1 Card Reader

1 out of 5 eggs Cables WAY too short 05/19/2011

This review is from: IOGEAR GUH287 3-Port USB 2.0 Hub and 45-in-1 Card Reader

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.
