Top critical review

Not worth the headache or the money. I specifically bought this for my home MB air and work MBP because of the extra usb ports and ethernet port - I figured less stuff to carry around, all inclusive - wrong. It works intermittently on both laptops. It works fine using 2 ports but once you put a third jump drive in, it will start to intermittently disconnect or stop working altogether and will drop your wireless connection.
Moving on to the ethernet usage..There are dead zones in some of the buildings that I'm at so I can't use the wireless on my laptop, that's where the ethernet port should come in handy. That is the operative word - should. As soon as I plug in the ethernet port, the usb ports render inoperable. Basically Anker says - pick and choose which is more important to you, having a jump drive or a lan connection.
I spent hours over the course of the next few days trying to troubleshoot this. I tested this on my Surface Pro 3 - same issue, HP pavilion test laptop - same issue, Dell Latitude - same issue, sooo disappointed in this Anker product. I normally would choose Anker products over others even if the price is more so now I probably won't. I found this one to be much better http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BWF5U0M?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages01 ; luckily, I found a certified ethernet dongle that was laying around in the conference room and using that instead of making another purchase. This definitely was a waste of my $21. It's a paperweight now but even there it doesn't do the job - it falls over. Garbage can, here it goes.
