Well little over yr ago I went to Ebay and I bought two new USB-2 
readers one has a so+ in one + a splitter that splits the usb port into 
3 port females and the other was plain 19 in one they both were less 
than $10 and both work great on all the Ubuntu versions out of the box. 
Both are no name China units.
