This review is from: PS3 Move Power Stand (Video Game)
Up until last month, I had an original 60gb launch-model PS3. I used it primarily for gaming, but about 40% of its use was for media/blu-ray. It had a good run, but eventually succumbed to the dreaded YLOD. So I went out and got a new 320gb slim model PS3, and wouldn't you know it - aside from the fact that I lost 2 usb ports and the card reader (I used MS Pro-duo to watch stuff between the PS3 and PSP) the darn thing's USB ports don't put out enough power to run my external 2.5" HDD. So in searching for a powered USB hub, I came across this product. Like usual, I perused the reviews, and decided to get it. When it arrived, it was packaged box-in-a-box, so no damage there. Set it all up, plugged everything in, and viola! I have my HDD back! All in all, this is a pretty great product. The PS3 mounts very securely, and it holds all the controllers pretty good too. As a plus, the PS3 I bought came with the Move kit, and the Move and Navigation controllers fit really well into their slots, as do the Sixaxis controllers. Best of all, I now have 5 open USB ports. The stand comes with a usb cable that conveniently tucks away underneath it when not in use, but I leave it plugged in all the time to the PS3, and use the ports on the stand. PS3 Eye camera works well off of the stand's USB ports, no loss of functionality there. Even better - I plugged in my Logitech G27 into the stand's USB port, played a couple of hours of GT5, and all's good there too. It worked perfectly. The only minutely bad thing about the stand is the lack of a smart-charging system. If you leave it on, and leave your controller plugged into it's cradle, it'll constantly send charging power to it. How do you get around this? Well, once the light changes from red to blue (to indicate charging complete) you can remove your controller OR you can get off your lazy behind and just hit the power switch in front of the stand. So it's not really an issue. If you're too lazy to hit a switch, then you got a different set of problems altogether. I think the fact that you can charge your controllers without having to have the PS3 on overrides the aforementioned small negative trait. Overall this is an excellent product, and fits my needs. I recommend it.
