This USB hub gives your PS3 slim two more USB slots and an SD card reader. It works great with external USB hard drives, pen sticks and Sony eye camera.

Sorry, not as far as i know.

Bought internal card reader for PC from DX. Quite similar thing to this one. Quality was...worse than bad. Usb port wasn't soldered properly, broke immediately. Pins in CF slot were already bent. It was multiple order - 5 things. Reader as you already know was crap, one item was missing, two other DOA. I actually finished with one item for the price of five. And delivery took month... Right, it was cheaper than chips but personally I will avoid any business with them...

Voted cold. I bought one of these, it was broken on arrival. Bought another one and it's broken a few weeks later - one of the USB ports is dead, same problem as the other one. I bought one of the Nyko ones complete with remote, and that's been fine.

I ordered one of these before Christmas last year and it eventually arrived mid-February. The SD card slot doesn't work for me but all 4 of USB ports do work (I think).

there is but no card reader on it. amazon sell them link below(i'm sure e-bay do as well).

I just use a normal USB hub plugged into the second port (JB dongle in the first), always worked fine for controllers, guitars etc.

I also ordered this last November and it arrived late January, DX are always slow with delivery more so around Christmas. It’s been working fine for me and I’ve tested it with a western digital external USB drive, Kingston pen stick and a ps3 eye camera.

Can get of ebay for 4.60 with UK delivery so you'l receive it a lot faster.

Its good idea though. I have one I bought a while back.

I bought a 4 port USB hub from poundland that does the exact same job, but isn't as pretty and only uses 1 of my USB ports. I've got a poundland card reader too which I'm sure would also work with the PS3, but I've yet to test it.

DONT BUY !! i got one from this company and its cheap crap !!!! it messed up my ps3 due to being made wrong, wires inside shorted out and blew the usb ports on my ps3, My friend also got one and it done the same to his, I opened mine up and trust me you would not use it on a £250 + console if you knew what it was made like inside, Im not saying all are the same but end of the day its not a good known brand and its junk ! stick with sony add-ons, --- £5.11 to destroy your usb ports ?? dont do it !

BTW clean your PS3,, bet you can write your name on it with all that dust ! LOL

I bought one. I just got the Move last night so I've run out of USB slots.

I just read a review that says it doesn't work well with Move Eye but another one says it works perfectly. I guess we'll see when it arrives.

Shame its so damn ugly.

Why have you still got a JB dongle in ?!

Yes there is, I have one on my old fat PS3 HERE
It only has 3 ports on it but it only uses one of the ports on the PS3, so you change 1 port to 3x USB ports and 1x card reader, and still have 1 (or 3 depending on PS3 model) left on the PS3 itself.
