1* Good but flawed
Reviewed by AndyN on 08/03/2014
This is a good looking unit and well made but if you use CF cards it has a major design flaw. The depth of the CF card slot is only about 1cm, consequently there is only about 6mm to guide the card to correctly align with the pins. This is not enough, almost immediately I bent a pin and it has shorted the circuit board for the card reader, non of the card reader slots now work.

I am not a clumsy grunt, (no offence grunts) I have been using CF cards and card readers for years without a problem but this is the first device I’ve used which effectively lacks any guide for the card. Don’t use this device for CF cards unless you are extremely careful.

Thankfully the USB ports have not been affected but it has left me with just a USB hub.

If it wasn’t for the CF card slot I would have given the unit a top score.
