4 out of 5 eggsPleased So Far.

Pros: Everything seems to work so far.
Install was fairly simple.
Shipping was quicker than expected.

Cons: 2 bright LEDs shine whenever your computer is on and something is plugged into the panel.
The 2 external USB connectors add some bulk, what I don't understand is why they are necessary, the device seems to run fine without them plugged in.

5 out of 5 eggsI LOVE it

Pros: This thing is awesome, the fact that it has a Micro SD port means you do not need that stupid adaptor that always gets lost...the 3 USB 3 ports perform exactly the way intended I got 2 of them and installed em in My and My Wife's systems...went in very easy the instructions are perfect and concise.

Cons: Not a One

5 out of 5 eggsnice multi reader card

Pros: fit and finish is nice. (not perfect)
usb ports work quite well
Multi reader ports work well
Very easy install
No power adapter needed!
(Full size SD card slot works with SDXC)

Cons: Needs to have a USB adapter for the motherboard for the USB 2.0 connectors.
The 5.25" adapter is plastic and sits just a little back of the case front panel - not horrible.

Other Thoughts: This comes with a rear slot cover with a cut out to let you put the USB 2.0 connectors out the back of your case. but after reading the reviews I decided to purchase 2 StarTech USB A Female to USB Motherboard 4 Pin Header F/F and it works great on my Asrock Z87 Extreme4 motherboard. This replaced a previously erratic reader. I have tried 3 different brands and sizes of CF cards as well as 4gb through 64gb full size SD cards - reads and writes to all of them. Exactly what I needed.
I won't knock off an egg for a very minor cosmetic fit - no way it will be perfect with all cases made. I also didn't knock off an egg for the USB 2.0 connectors because they did provide a solution that will probably work with a lot of people.
No power adapter needed - just 3 connectors to hook up - nice.

1 out of 5 eggsNot suitable for Win 8.1

Pros: Has a good mix of interfaces. Good cable length.

Cons: The unit often does not work for SDHC cards. Continually drops connection with system giving sporadic disconnect / connect sounds. It got so bad that I turned off the sound until I had time to address the problem. Not finding any contact information, I am at a loss as to how to fix the problem with a driver upgrade. The only alternatives I believe I have is to either junk it or dig into Win 8.1 USB options.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: Fast; reads most new formats like Micro SD without the need of an adapter; USB 3.0; reliable so far :)

Cons: On top of the USB 3.0 that plug to your motherboard you have to plug in 2 extra normal usb 3.0 to the rear of your computer, I have a Full tower and it the wires barely made it to the back plugs, the fact that it uses 2 of my 4 external usb 3.0 on top of the lone internal 3.0 that I have on my mobo didn`t please me, I wish it would have been only a single plug internal USB 3.0 instead...

Also, it doesn`t come with the usb 2.0 adapter, so if you don`t have a 3.0 plug on your mobo, you will have to buy one.
