Not as all, as I use it all the time in reality, not in theory. ;-)
The "point" is that you don't have to unplug your OS CF and then mount it in the PC under WinUAE so you can transfer files
You just plop them on the other CF card.
Powering down is no biggie. This is an Amiga after all.
We're used to power downs between games and it reboots nice and fast. :-)
Now, if you don't like it, that's OK. But that doesn't make it pointless.
To be honest, I wasn't sure about the need when I got mine, but I use it all the time to transfer files. It actually works very well.
