    Super buy so useful card reader plus 2 usb ports but the 1 touch back up makes it worth every penny and puts those old sata drives to use again. a must for your desk top or laptop.

  • Works. Read a harddrive, read an SD card. If you turn the power on with a harddrive in it while connected to USB it can serge your USB port causing (in my case) OSX to stop sending power to that port. But if you don't do that it is fine.

  • This item arrived in thoughtfully designed packaging for the base unit USB cable and power unit. Very easy to follow instructions and a simple drop in of the SATA drive which worked excellently. Also supplied is a CD with software and numerous additional ports USB / SD etc which I have yet to make the most of. Excellent value for money. Peter G

  • Worked straight out box, only downside, after 2nd drive put in, the little plastic door that flips back up snapped at the hinge and is no loger fitted, however does not affect the function of the unit

  • On the whole a very useful addition to my hardware. Works happily under Ubuntu 11.04, and accommodates drives formatted in either FAT32 or EXT4. The card reader accommodates CF cards and is much faster transferring photographs compared with my camera. Only downside is that it interferes with my network printer/scanner, so needs to be unplugged from the USB port when I want to print or scan.

  • I have been using the Unitek version of this excellent product for 12-18 months as a fast backup system for a large amount of data over a handful of HDs, with no problems - until a week ago, when I started getting write errors, which continued even after I ran a chkdsk d:/f on it. I have since discovered the power supply is faulty. Will try and get a replacement power supply from my local Maplin tomorrow.

  • All works a expected. Delivery was really good, ordered PM and delivered next day

  • So far a product that does what is expected - plug into computer, plug in a SATA drive and off you go. Using a 2Tb disk fine with no drop out on the connections.

    Additional card reader works fine.

    Great addition of the additional USB ports which are powered (at least enough to power 2 external USB 2.5" drives at the same time).

    Has a power switch on it which helps to be able to reduce power consumption when the unit is not in use (you still have to unplug the transformer to ensure no power consumption).
