I was making my new machine and having many usb ports isn't a bad thing. Everything takes a port from you. Also it's better than a USB hub because you don't need to plug it in and it clutters the room up (probably would have crappy LED on it too).
I bought this as I was running out of USB ports on my desktop. With mouse, keyboard, bluetooth adaptor, RF remote receiver, headset, and webcam plugged in constantly, I didn't have much left for external harddrives or usb keys. Adding one of these helped alleviate that problem, and for the 8 bucks I paid it was definitely worth it.
My brother has an older case/motherboard that has messed up USB ports. He can't even get external 2.5" USB hard drives to properly install and work. For < $10, he has 4 fully functioning USB 2.0 ports now. Very easy to install... Win7 recognized it and it worked right away.
The device adds extra USB ports to a computer. I haven't had any problems with it and my only complaint is that the USB plugs stick out a little too much after they get plugged into the card.
I needed to get USB 2.0 support on an old OEM machine with an 850 Mhz Celeron to use as a security webcam server. There was nothing I could do to get the cams I bought working properly on the built in USB 1.1 ports, just terrible, inconsistent performance.
