1 out of 5 eggsSD port stopped working after a few months, still waiting for replacement

Pros: Looks good, convenient, fast

Cons: SD port stopped working after several months. Got an RMA number and shipped it back to NZXT. One month later, no replacement, no refund, no response. Horrible!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Unit

Pros: Easy install, looks great with mesh front case, fast I/O. Tested speeds with USB 3.0, and a couple of class 10 SDHC/microSDHC cards. Immediate recognition of attached storage device in Windows 8.1 Pro when drive/card plugged in.

Cons: None yet, but only installed last night.

Other Thoughts: R/W speeds are on par with any other USB 3.0 interface.
You'll want to make sure that you have a 19 pin USB 3.0 header on your MB, or get yourself an expansion card that supports it. This reader needs both a standard USB 2.0 header and a USB 3.0 header for power and I/O.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Looks great
Installed easily
Working perfectly, no issues.

Cons: The cables were really long, probably necessary for some cases and motherboards, but certainly not for mine. Not a major issue, the cable management in my case is pretty easy, so I was able to tuck them nicely behind everything else.

Other Thoughts: Despite the crooked USB ports in the picture, mine are straight.

Cannot comment on the durability, just installed it. This is more or less my first impression of the product.

2 out of 5 eggsDecent product, non-existant customer service

Pros: Looks nice and fills entire 5.25" drive bay. Matches mesh design on Corsair D series cases. Easy to use when it works.

Cons: Card reader died in just over 13 months. NZXT never responded to my support ticket. I had previously contacted NZXT regarding another product and they didn't reply to that ticket either. Calling it terrible customer service would be disingenuous because there is no customer service at all.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsTake a look at the photo...

Pros: See other thoughts.

Cons: Quality?

Other Thoughts: I was considering buying this...but take a look at how poorly fitted the USB Ports are (photo of front view enlarged). I hope that is not indicative of the quality of this unit...that would bother me if the panel is in plain sight.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: -ITS ALL BLACK!!!!
-Two true USB 3.0

Cons: -Price? (higher than others but hey its looks better)

Other Thoughts: Love how it looked and was the main reason behind getting it. The Black mesh matches seemingly with my case. Its also all black, no white inserts where the SD cards or Flash cards go like many others have. Also the USB 3.0 slots are truly 3.0 and not just painted blue like many others i've seen.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked for awhile

Pros: Nice looking unit.

Cons: Stoped working with an error code 43 (windows) Driver issues. Contacted support, two days later got a reply that was no help. Emailed several more times with no answer. This company has no phone support. Will look for another like product.

3 out of 5 eggsGood product idea

Pros: Good looking, fits nicely in computer case and was easy to install. Nice unit but not always friendly with some of the modern operating systems.

Cons: Won't work with all operating systems. Requires drivers and you may need to change some setting in your PC so it can see the drive(s).

You'll need to have an available 3.0 (20 pin) USB Header & a 2.0 (9 pin) USB header on your motherboard for it to work.

Other Thoughts: This is one of the best card-readers I've used. It's aesthetically pleasing; good looking. Requires both a 3.0 & 2.0 USB header on your motherboard. You can buy a PCIe USB card to add more USB headers if you have too, so you can use this unit.
