5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Nice fit and nice quality construction for an inexpensive upgrade. My 2yr old workstation USB3 hub was dropping out during large file transfers and this one works much better. Simple hookup, works well and very reasonable cost on sale. Keep one or two xtra on hand for fixer uppers is my advice.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I like this one so much I ordered another one right away. Hope they are durable, they certainly seem well made. Heck..might even order a third one.

5 out of 5 eggsfilled the need

Pros: Had 2 empty USB3 connections on my MOBO and finally found the right device to fill one.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Why do newer MOBO's come with USB3 board connections and no supplied connectors? ASUS used to and now do not.

5 out of 5 eggsNice touch!

Pros: Nice face plate, good quality, fits perfectly with my NZXT Phantom case and Asus Z97 M/B; By putting this USB 3 hub in the front do significant increase my productivity and entertainment purpose.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: This hub come with 22" USB 3 cable which is long enough for NZXT Phantom to reach any part of my Asus Z-97 M/B, it should be no problem to fit in most gaming cases in my opinion.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Convenient

Pros: Works flawlessly, able to get USB 3.0 on the front of my old AZZA midtower.

Cons: Not the adapters fault, but my case has a door that covers the drive bays. So if I want to close the cover, I have to unplug whatever I've got plugged in.

5 out of 5 eggsHuzzah, now I have USB 3.0!

Pros: Works like a charm. I had an unused 3.5" drive bay and an available USB 3.0 connector on my motherboard (Asus M5A99FX), so this was exactly what I needed to take advantage of that. Both USB ports have a sturdy, solid feel, and they run my USB 3.0 devices at full speed.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I didn't bother to check the cable length - it seems to be an issue for some, though it wasn't for me. I actually had cable to spare and ended up tucking the excess back inside.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good

Pros: Reasonably priced. Works great with all of my thumb drives. Having two USB 3 ports on the front of the case is convenient.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I used the 3.5" to 5.25" adapter that came with my CM Storm Scout case and it was a perfect fit. Cable length is 22 inches, which was long enough to reach the 19 pin header from the second-from-the-top 5.25" drive bay. I measured the cable only and not the connector or housing. Choosing the Super Eggsaver free shipping option at checkout, the panel arrived in the mail six days after I ordered it. This is the third Tek Republic device that I bought and I'm quite pleased with their quality and price.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks without problem!

Pros: My example (I have two of them) had 20" usable length not 24" unless you cut a hole further forward in the tray near the head.

Cons: I see no problem unless you need a 5.25 to 3.5
' adapter to fit in a CD slot or cable length greater then 20." and need additional adapters.

Other Thoughts: Good value

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great but Short Cable

Pros: Works great. Fits my 3.5" floppy bay just fine. Screws came with it but I used my own, same type as used for a floppy drive. Screws provided had beveled heads and I preferred to use regular-headed screws.

Cons: First, the screws provided did not make sense as they had beveled heads for a recessed screw hole. If you have screws left over from removing a floppy disk drive then you'll be fine. They are the same type screws used for optical drives - CD, DVD, BluRay. Second, as another reviewer said, the cable provided is short (I did not measure it). He quoted 14.5 inches. But I had taken his advice and checked my PC and a short cable was OK for my case and motherboard.

Other Thoughts: This front plate gave me an inexpensive set of front panel USB 3.0 ports, spaced widely enough that I could have two USB flash drives side by side (just tried that, it worked). I'm adding this to an older Lian Li case that did not come with USB 3.0 front panel ports. This add-on was all I needed as my new motherboard had the 20-pin USB 3.0 port on it. I just ordered a 2nd one of these, with a SYBA SD-PEX20139 PCI-Express card, Newegg part # N82E16815124120, to do the same upgrade for a friend with the same case. His motherboard does not have the 20-pin port thus the need for the card.

1 out of 5 eggsDisappointed

Pros: Don't know, did not get it installed.

Cons: The attached cable is NOT 2 feet, as it is described, but instead only 14.5 inches. Due to this misinformation, I am unable to use this in my PC. Very disappointing that something as simple as cable length is wrong.
