For easy, upfront connectivity of USB peripherals, we recommend the Cables To Go Port Authority 2 USB 2.0 Front Panel. Add two USB ports to the front of your computer case for hassle-free access. This USB front panel easily connects to the USB connectors on your motherboard. If you prefer to connect to the USB ports on the back of your computer, easily swap the cables. The panel supports both USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 peripheral devices.

5 out of 5 eggsNice and useful !

Pros: Even fits well in the vast majority of "toolless" bays.
Provides USB2 Ports AND a place to mount a floppy disk, Media Card reader or 2.5 " SSD- 1 less adaptor needed !

Cons: None, better than expected.

Other Thoughts: 2 USB ports added to the front and a place to mount that SSD, Floppy or Media reader- what more can you ask for- better than I expected.

5 out of 5 eggs2 USB Ports Only

Pros: Fits perfectly CD bay.
Superior packaging with full color laminated cardboard & padding foam inside, instructions*

Cons: Has only 2 ports -> current motherboards have about 6 extra ports to be routed on the front panel of the PC case. I wish it had 4 or 6 ports instead of the FLOPPY DRIVE cutout. Who is using floppies or even DAT tapes today?

Other Thoughts: These two ports are connected to one cable terminated with double row .1" pin header. The included alternate cable* with two regular USB plugs seems to be for USB2 or USB3 connectivity, I assume. Not sure if you can get full USB3 speed with that.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh Quality - worth price

Pros: High quality construction. Just the thing if you need external 3 1/2" + 2 USB 2.0 ports.

Cons: A couple quirks. The USB connectors are "upside down" as shipped, but they can be unscrewed and flipped easily enough. Doesn't really matter unless you have something like a removable SD reader with a slot on the top. Also, because of the USB connector, only three of the four side holes are usable. There's a full set of holes on the bottom, however, so this usually doesn't matter.

Other Thoughts: I've had the beige version of this for many years - I bought the black one when I migrated to a new case.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Its from NEWEGG

Cons: Price and shipping on the high side.

Other Thoughts: Varified the wiring for the USB on the motherboard. Connected it, Win Xp recognised it and it worked perfectly. It also comes with a replaceable cover to install a floppy drive.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works great. Fits right into 5.25 bay. Has second face plate so you can put a 3.5 bay device inside the 5.25 bay with the 2 USB ports. Comes with 2 sets of cables one for connecting to the USB header(5-pin) and one for connecting to USB A-type.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Comes with a lot of extra screws. so if you were missing some when mounting other devices.......................
