1 out of 5 eggsWorks, but SLOWLY!!!

Pros: Reads all the cards I need it to and has external hookup for SATA which is handy. Has audio port for cases that don't have front headphone hookup.

Cons: Cables are confusing. CF port doesn't have a bottom support so if you miss the guides, you will lose your CF card in you case and have to go in after it. Transferring files is SLOW.

Other Thoughts: I bought this after my old 12-in-1 USB card reader kicked the bucket. Tested transferring a 585MB video file off a 60MB/s UDMA CF card and it only transferred at 3.15MB/s. Copied the same file with the same card using one of the motherboard USB slots and got a transfer rate of 33MB/s. 1/10th the speed of other USB ports is unacceptable. I never thought about it transferring slower than my 5 year old card reader. Do not buy this unless you want to transfer files slower than you already do. I haven't tried to return this item as of yet, but I will be doing so soon.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: More USB ports than will ever be needed, and a reader for every media card possible. The faceplate has a clean finish that looks great with any dark case. Came with a standard USB cable just in case there aren't enough internal motherboard connectors.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This will require A LOT of internal USB connections, I recommend you get an NZXT IU01, as it adds three USB pin outs and two standard USB connectors. Perfect amount for what this takes.

1 out of 5 eggsAnother Don't Even Think About Buying It!

Pros: None

Cons: Panel supports AC97 sound only, no HD sound possible. The sound cable is also incorrectly wired with no corrective information from their tech support. You need to figure it out for yourself!

Power SATA port has a male instead of a female connector. A non-existent female to female extension cable is needed. AeroCool has NO cable available to use this port and no suggestions. I use a SATA power Y-splitter for a real mickey mouse solution.

Other Thoughts: As a previous reviewer N/A stated "Run, don't walk, away from this one!"

I only wish I had followed his advice!

2 out of 5 eggsFAIL

Pros: I just wanted a card reader and some extra USB ports, along with some front facing audio jacks. All I got was extra USB ports and jacks. 1 egg for the USB and 1 egg for the jacks. At least they work.

Cons: I read a review that said their 8GB SD card froze their system up but their 4GB SD card worked fine. I wish I had that same problem. My 1GB CF card gave me the blue screen of death and rebooted the system. I got it to work one time and every other time it failed. I reinstalled the drivers multiple times to no avail. An archaic 64MB XD picture card worked every time. Who uses cards that small nowdays?

Other Thoughts: Power USB is a cool idea...if you can find the cords to work for what you need. I can't. I also called AeroCool several times to try to see what I could do to resolve the card reader problem. They won't answer the phone. This product isn't even listed on their website. Hopefully they are just gone for the holidays and I can repost a more positive review later.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't bvuy it!!!

Pros: Non. Pluged it in and it did not work. The connectors are weird, terrible too. Tech support is out of country and very hard to understand, if not impossible.

Cons: Let's see... It didn't work, tech support speaks a different language.

Other Thoughts: Run, don't walk, away from this one!

4 out of 5 eggsIt works good only one problem

Pros: I had it for almost a year and just find out one problem
when I try to use 8 GB SD memory card my computer instantly shot down and go for reboot and will not boot up unlit I remove 8 GB SD memory card ... and if I plug in 4 GB SD no problems at all... I think this problem has nothing to do with drivers…

Cons: ok

Other Thoughts: will not work with large memory cards, may be new drivers will help... dont have time to play with it...

4 out of 5 eggsThis really has been useful.

Pros: Mounted very easily and wired right up. it really helps if you have a good manual for your other board.

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: Really fast delivery from New Egg again. I really get spoiled from them. most others just take longer I guess

4 out of 5 eggsA little more than you may need, but still good.

Pros: Provides a robust card reader array, front-panel audio, SATA and SATA power, and up to four additional USB 2.0 ports, two of which can be linked to Aero's proprietary PowerUSB system that allows for powering of peripherals from the front panel when needed. It comes with everything you need to make the connections except for a SATA cable. My experience has shown it works out of the box and adheres to USB standards, which means most modern OSs such as XP, Linux, and Vista will recognize all the attached devices immediately. Everything works as expected with no serious issues.

Cons: It requires five USB headers for full USB functionality (four for the ports, one for the card reader). Furthermore, the connectors linked to the ports have separate connectors for each individual pin. The SATA connectors are not eSATA-standard and therefore will probably serve little functionality other than testing new drives and such prior to internal installation.

Other Thoughts: With so much functionality condensed onto a 5.25" front panel, there are inevitably a lot of cables to negotiate. This would likely be true of any such panel, though, so it falls as simply a note: not a pro or con. The individual USB connectors issue, though a Con, is at least an issue that can be relieved relatively easily with some knowledge of the matter.

4 out of 5 eggsOne of the Best

Pros: Hi only reason I gave 4 eggs instead of 5 eggs because:

The computer I installed on has Dual boat Windows XP Professional and Windows Vista Home Premium. ON VISTA EVERETHING WORKS 100 % BUT ON XP FRONT MICROFON WON’T WORK I HAVE TRIED EVERETHING. I probably will try few thing later

My motherboard is Abit IX38 Quad GT, E8400, 3gb 8500 ram, 2X Nvideo geForse n8600 GT ddrr 3

Cons: not bad
