4 out of 5 eggsIt says in the overview "Needs a floppy controller on the MOBO"

Pros: It combines a floppy drive with a standard memory card reader
it gives me what i want in a refurbish build im doing

Cons: It does require a floppy header on the mobo but it says that in the review i just wish it would plug into a usb header on the mobo instead of being routed

Other Thoughts: Too everyone saying that it didnt say that it requires a 34pin floppy header it says in the overview that it requires a floppy connection on the motherboard so i have to say to you next time try to read the overview alil closer

1 out of 5 eggsWrong connector

Pros: The card reader works

Cons: The connector for the floppy is 34 pins not 40. Couldnt get a SATA addapter to fit for a new motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I'm still using it for the card reader, but the floppy will not work.

1 out of 5 eggsOld technology

Pros: I cant think of one it is outdated ..maybe back in 2005 it may have worked because oMotherboards today do not come with a floppy controller

Cons: I need to send this back it is nothing but a card reader the floppy will never work unless you have an old computer

Other Thoughts: It's useless unless you have a computer that is old witha floppy controller and its way to expensive to be just a card reader..it wont even read new cards

1 out of 5 eggsHas obsolete floppy drive connector

Pros: SD card reader and floppy drive combo

Cons: They used an old 34 pin FDD connector for the floppy drive, there is NO adapter made to plug it up to anything other than a 34 pin FDD header on an old motherboard.

I, looking at the picture, assumed it was a 40 pin IDE connector considering newer floppy drives used that instead of the 34 pin.

Absolutely useless product without the floppy drive, there are PLENTY of better SD card readers without a floppy drive. If I had known it used the old connector I would never have bought this.

Its stupid that they didn't bother to mention it used a 34 pin in the product details.

Other Thoughts: Wasted so much money buying this, and a 40pin to sata adapter.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Floppy/Reader Combo

Pros: This is the first reliable floppy/card reader combo I've purchased, after going through two broken ones sent from Geeks.com. It works and looks very good in either black or beige (comes with two faceplates).

No drivers necessary (Xubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 64 bit), just plug and play.

Cons: Uses a USB port out the back of your PC, not a USB header on the motherboard. It doesn't read super high-capacity SD cards, so you have to look at what you need it to read/write before you buy. Since I knew what I was getting in to, these aren't really cons.

Other Thoughts: See here for card reader compatibility:

I know it works with at least 4GB SD cards, 'cause that's what I have.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Exactly What It Says It Is!

Pros: Does what it says it does! Just hook it up and it works. Just hooked it up today. We'll have to see if it stands up for the long haul.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: People complain that it doesn't work with newer mother boards. Well, read the description and look at the photos! Others have complained that it doesn't come with a floppy ribbon. I guess most of us that still have a board old enough to accommodate this drive, are geeks that work on machines all the time. So I'm betting that most of us have a floppy ribbon or two laying around that can be used. If you don't, they're pretty cheap these days. Just buy one either from here or from a local computer repair place or from a fellow geek.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat for a stoneage mobo

Pros: The card reader works

Cons: This was my mistake, I did not really look at the specs. First, if your mobo does not have the floppy drive controller then this will not work especially on a Sabertooth. That was my mistake. But the next one is on them, why would you make a reader that installs in a bay only to have to run a cable through the back of your system to plug into a USB port on the outside? That is the dumbest design I have seen so far!

Other Thoughts: There are cheaper and better designed setups than this.

5 out of 5 eggsAfter some research works fine

Pros: Floppy drive works when needed (see commments) and the card readers are really handy. Black drive bay. Works as expected(see comments)

Cons: Had to run the USB cable out the back of case for readers but doing this only uses one usb slot. If it used a onboard header then it would take two up. Just wish it had a longer usb cord but I managed. Came with a mini cd in the box first time I've seen one lol.

Other Thoughts: At first I thought the floppy drive was defective like many have posted here. However, if the floppy drive light stays on chances are its user error. Pin 1 or the stripe should be on left side of drive, should be same on mothjerboard but check manual to be sure. Did that and it fixed the problem I thought I had. Just a little research on line will pay off if ya take the time. So if the drive light stays on and the floppy drive doesn't seem to work try checking connections.
