Nice item to have
Item delivered. packaged well. Item as described. Only wished the power cord was a little longer. otherwise, item works as described. It's nice that the ports have a dedicated power supply, so you can charge items (albeit not supercharge) on the open ports. This comes into play if your computer goes to sleep, but you want to continue charging items attached. only small concern is that the anti slip surface doesn't work quite as well, but I wouldn't dock it a star for that. works well for my imac with all the USB/card reader ports are inconveniently positioned behind screen.

So a pretty flaky environment in general
I have had this now for a few months. Running windows 7 pro over my DIY intel box, I do a lot of development work on USB based credit terminals, iPhones, Androids, etc. so I run a lot of oddball USB stuff. I also run a lot of VM's that use devices on USB. So a pretty flaky environment in general, but this thing has been super reliable. I'm impressed. Also like the SD card reader is an unexpected but great ad, lets me pull photos off my Sony camera and has been bullet proof thus far. Wish the cable were a bit longer, but not a biggie.

Nice reader and port hub, but the USB 3 cable it comes with is too short.
I like it, the USB 3.0 cord it came with was too short, though. This is perfect for use on a desk, and it's a reasonable assumption a USB 3 port might be a little further away than a couple of feet. I upgraded the cord and all is well. Also, when I purchased, it wasn't clear that the power cord is included on the 6-port model with SD-card reader, so I have a superfluous power adapter.

Awesome hub. USB cable too short, but not a big deal.
Very nice looking and performs great. Solid, gorgeous finish. I like that the power-in / usb out plugs are in back (unlike other models that have plugs on either side which…well what were those other designers thinking?).
The supplied usb cable is too short however, I bought another one and am happy.

I like it!
Just hooked this up to my MacBook Pro - it has a limited amount of USB ports and I hated unplugging one USB device after another to go back and forth between devices. This, so far, is perfect.

This device works flawlessly and so far very dependable. This is my second device of this type, if you buy, please spend a little more for a dependable product.

Buy extension cord too to reach if you want to put on a desktop
Works good just buy an extension cord too. The power cord length insufficient.

I like it. It keeps me from having to plug ...
I like it. It keeps me from having to plug things into the back of my iMac and it seems to work just fine. It's a good fix and keeps my desk neat.

Good product and the SD slot is a real plus. It can be a little touchy getting the card in but that's a nitpick.
