    I was looking for an easy way to add a USB port and card reader to my 2520. I don't like carrying lots of cables and adapters and I had tried the EEE 4 in 1 kit.

    Instead I got this XCSouce 3 in 1 OTG USB 3.0 reader from Amazon:

    Then I modified my Poetic case so it fits in without removal from case. I also got the case on Amazon: Poetic SlimLine Case for Nokia Lumia 2520 10.1 Inch Window RT Tablet Black (3 Years Manufacturer Warranty from Poetic): Computers & Accessories

    It works great and I have attached a few pictures.

    Hope this helps someone.wp_20140803_16_13_40_pro.jpgwp_20140803_16_13_32_pro.jpgwp_20140803_16_11_55_pro-2-.jpg

    looks like a great solution to a problem I have. Have you used the 3.0 with the 3.0 Flashdrive?

    I just realized my my Finite folio case would need the same alterations you have made to your Poetic case, which had made me rethink about if I want to do that or not.

    bought it. doesnt work. but continue reading.

    i checked drivers, nothing pops up. doesnt even say if its installed or installing. i tried putting a SD(HC) into it, does not to detect, plugged in an external drive. doesnt detect either.

    however,plugging it into the keyboard's usb ports and it'll detect the SD card just fine, but it wont detect the external (probably not enough power draw). therefore, the device is confirmed to work, it just wont work on the usb 3.0 portion of the tablet. but because all my physical buttons are dead (except the power one, which will only shut off if held or turn on), its possible that the 3.0 port is also dead. means i'll have to send in the tablet, sigh.

    before i do anything else, i'm going to go into either verizon or att, depending on if they carry any display ones to test, and i'll test it on one of those tablets instead - in case the usb 3.0 part on the reader is faulty.
