A little larger than I expected but it does what it says. It is not powered so you can't plug 3 bus-powered hard drives in and expect it to work.
My only problem is iClever does not have a good web site and has neither drivers or documentation available for download. There is no mention of the chipset used for ethernet in any documentation. It took a little digging but for those interested my unit came with a Realtek RTL8153 gigabyte usb ethernet chipset. Drivers can be downloaded from Realtek's web site at www.realtek.com.tw, do a quick search for USB Ethernet and you should find them. CD supplied had drivers 8 months out-of-date. Drivers _are_ required for Windows (any version), MacOS and Linux picked it up and ran with it just fine (Linux uses r815x kernel module).
Transfer speeds were good with my limited testing.
I would recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap, portable combined USB hub and ethernet port, great for laptops that don't have an ethernet port already in them like ultrabooks or MacBook Airs.
The device works without driver installation and has yet to give me any trouble: All USB devices and every ethernet connection I used it with worked flawlessly.
Initially, I tried plugging it in with a live RJ-45 hardwired ethernet connection, and it didn't work (no surprise, I suppose: no drivers). But when I unplugged it, now I can't get to the internet wirelessly either. Nor will it boot now that I've restarted. So there are real issues with installing the product unless you install the drivers first, which i could not do initially with the provided small-format CD.
Edit 1/11: HisGadget contacted me pretty fast on reading this review, and eventually provided me a link to the driver file required for the product. I was a bit lazy getting to it, but finally downloaded them onto a USB flash drive, and installed them on the Win8.1 computer. Install went smoothly, and the device worked within seconds of being plugged in with the proper driver preinstalled.
Amended review to 3 stars - you'll need to get a usable driver file or somehow get the one on the CD to your computer FIRST. If you can do that, it seems a fine product.
