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.

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

over all it will do you fine, i just wasnt ready for it to take up both usb ports on the computer.

My computer XP recognized the drive and it read my cards just fine. its a nice size unit.
The usb cord between the unit and the computer turned out to be rather different. it requires that you use 2 usb ports on the computer and the cord is only about 18 inches long. since it has to go in front of the computer it takes up both usb slots so having the 3 slots on the reader only nets you...

Some negative reviews here dislike this unit because you only gain one USB port: 3 hub ports use 2 on your case. To them I say, you gain three USB ports about 2 feet away from whatever you're plugging it into!
It's not USB 3.0. That was a conscious decision because in this environment, I have no 3.0 devices so I saved cost. It also doesn't order coffee for me or attach the correct cover page on my TPS reports.

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.

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

Worked fine out the box.
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

Works if plugged in after computer starts up.
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.

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

It is inexpensive.
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.

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.
