Pros: SD Card Reader Works
Cons: USB ports failed to read any of my flash drives. Works fine in all the other ports on my computer, just not the ones on this unit.
This unit won't let my computer into sleep mode. Some error logging showed that a usb host wouldn't enter sleep so sleep mode is abandoned. When this unit is unplugged computer will enter sleep mode, when its plugged in won't enter sleep mode. Tried updating drivers, haven't seen any change.
Other Thoughts: USB Ports seem to work with most items, just can't get them to recognize flash drives. Won't let my computer enter sleep mode.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M4 64GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT064M4SSD3
Pros: Unit works as represented so far. A warning to people attempting to use it for Intel Smart Response (ISR), you need an i3,i5,i7 processor to use ISR. I am using a Pentium and discovered too late that I couldn't use ISR with it. ISR can't be used with Celeron or Pentium CPUs.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Card Reader Works
USB works with most items, but not all. Read below.
Cons: I discovered 2 issues with this reader.
1. It won't read any of my thumb drives. They are all Sandisk and work perfectly in all of my other USB Ports. When plugging them into any of the 3 ports on this unit, nothing happens. Doesn't acknowledge their existence.
2. This unit won't allow my computer to go into sleep mode. When attempting sleep the computer immediately comes back on. After some event logging I discovered the computer never actually reached sleep state. A warning is recorded saying a USB Host won't enter sleep mode so it aborts. When this unit is unplugged computer enters sleep mode just fine. Plug the unit back in and can't enter sleep. The culprit is obviously this unit. I've tried updating drivers to no avail.
Other Thoughts: Overall the unit mostly works. But I can't recommend it. Not reading my thumb drives is aggravating. And when using the unit I can't put my computer to sleep which is even more annoying since I routinely use it, well I did. Now I use hibernation which takes even longer to go down and come back up. Trying to return the unit isn't worth me spending even more money on this unit to potentially run into the same exact issue.READ FULL REVIEW
