I tested this product in a Windows 7 environment and was extremely impressed. Anyone using an ultra-book or a tablet with a USB (or micro USB) port will find this product incredibly useful when traveling.
The product arrived packaged very well. The build quality is very good (solid) and will definitely survive travel. All the ports are solidly built and I doubt they will come loose. The design is also very stylish as the manual says and is also easily portable. The connection cord (USB) is anchored very well to the device. Installation instructions were sufficient. I did not have to use the included driver (CD Rom) in a Win7 environment. Of significant note, no additional power source is required.
Installation was extremely simple in a Win 7 environment. Both my desktop and laptop recognized the device. However, on a friends system, which was also a Win 7 OS, we had to install the driver. Once installed, we had immediate access to 3 additional USB ports and an Ethernet port.
The product package includes an On the Go (OTG) micro USB adapter making it useful for those tablets, or other devices that have a a micro USB connection. This is a device that will find a place in most road warriors bags.
