4 out of 5 eggs Wrong Item listed in the pictures

Pros: -It was dirt cheap i paid 10.99.
-It runs 5 cards all at once and uses a single connection.
-I never used the face plates but they are a nice touch.
-So far everything seems to be working perfect :).

Cons: -Different style than i ordered. The one pictured has four slots and a USB plug and mine has five slots and a USB plug. I don't know if its a con or a pro since its actually better than the one i ordered haha.
-It puts 5 new drives under "My Computer" AT ALL TIMES. Even if the reader is empty it still shows up drive letters for five drives, which isnt a big deal but i though it should e mentioned.

Bottom Line: I would definitely buy this again. I just needed something with a CF and SD card spot and this was spot on. Bytecc seems to make pretty decent stuff especially for the price.

2 out of 5 eggs Not working with Win7, but works with Ubuntu

Pros: Like having the extra USB port on front of PC.

Cons: SD reader stopped working with Windows 7. I decided to boot into Ubuntu and it works there. Must be a driver issue with Windows??

5 out of 5 eggs Works

Pros: It works. Not much to be said.
It does what I need it to do and it's never given me any problem after 4 months of use!
Comes with multiple face plates and looks great in my case.

Cons: It doesn't bother me, but it does have two red lights that stay on constantly. Might bug some people.
