    um, very functional, very affordable, but it is scary looking, like Medusa with a hangover. Some may like it, but this is a bit unusual.

    False advertising

    They claim you add 4 USB and 2 Firewire but fail to acknowledge you lose one of each as well, so in fact your net gain is 1 Firewire and 3 USB
