If you are anything like me, you run out of USB ports fast. At times, you may even wish that you had a card reader port on your device but do not have one, or the one you have is in use. I have this very problem, especially when I am trying to use something like my laptop or even one of my tablets to do review work, and they only have the one USB plug.

There is a solution, and it can be found in a product from CateckDirect. They have a 3.0 3-Port Hub with Card Reader Combo, and it is just perfect for portable use. It can read two different card sizes, and has three USB ports on it.

The device is slim and has the three USB ports on one side along with the two card ports on the other. When plugged in, a beautiful Blue light lights up to let you know it is running. Be aware that what you connect will use power from your device unless it has a separate power supply. This is something that needs to be remembered since it will deplete your battery at a faster rate.

So far I have tested it with two things plugged into it. One is a card, the other a 500gig laptop drive. So far, I have not had any problems with it. It has not even gotten warm or anything. Which is good. I have used some products like this that warm up a bit.

Overall, I think this device is a great buy. I like it, and I am certain you will too.
