"Great little workhorse -- but dump the utility"4.0 starson by PSP747
Pros: Strong throughput, reliable
Cons: Utility doesn't add much
Summary: This little dynamo has great throughput, and the cable gives you a lot of flexibility with a desktop. With the rebates that seem to be common, the price is great too.
However the utility adds nothing to the product and doesn't do anything useful that windows doesn't already do for you automatically.
The instructions direct you to install the CD first, then plug in the adapter. However, to load the driver without the useless and annoying utility, do just the opposite: plug in the adapter to the computer, then when it asks for the CD, insert it and the driver will load without the utility.
