Pros: A really annoying way to maybe get two extra USB 3.0 ports.
Cons: This is an update to my prior review. I was sent a defective unit in which the USB 2.0 ports were in a constant mount/dismount cycle and within a month all other ports failed. I was issued an RMA and was sent another unit in which the USB 2.0 ports are dead out of the box. Based on other reviews this product appears to be a complete dud with severe, persistent manufacturing issues. Our company purchased Rosewill parts historically because they were cheap but functional. Now they are not even functional.
Other Thoughts: It costs about $10 a pop to return the devices, so after a couple of failed devices it is no longer even valuable to return them. Save yourself the annoyance and select another product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When it works it does what it should. I work in the forensics field so the ability to rapidly insert various types of media is useful.
Cons: Best guess is the device has some type of short in the USB 2.0 setup. Noticed it when the system was first built but it stopped for about a month then slowly but surely has become more common. The operating system will now continuously "ding" as if a device has been removed then re-inserted even if there is no activity going on. Investigation with the device manager and system logs shows it to be the ports that run over the USB 2.0 interface on this device. They will all suddenly unmount/remount for no reason. We've moved cables, checked power, etc, etc, to no avail. Might just be a bad unit but shows a poor level of construction.READ FULL REVIEW
