This hardware is very good. And low price too. If you are playing Geist, this card is for you. It has other synergy also.
First, it allow you to install a program or hardware from hand. How can that be leveraged. With Boomerang obviouly. Especialy at late game, when you have a stack near zero, you can make runs and install a Boomerang mid-run.
Other synergy include Tech Trader and Grappling Hook, Shiv, Spike, Crowbar, allowing you to install such program while on the run, use it, and get credits from Tech Trader.
Same goes with Sports Hopper, with Tech Trader, allowing you to clicklessly install Sport Hopper, trash it (and regain the creds spent) to draw 3, while on the run. Allowing you to steal City Work Project or Obotaka Protocol.
Even without those synergy, the ability to clicklessly install a program or an hardware, this saving you a click, is awesome. There are not many tools that get you click compression.
At 3 influences, you probably will not see it outside of criminals. But with criminals like Az or Geist, it is amazing and a must have.
