1 out of 5 eggsWorked great until it died

Pros: + solidly built
+ fast data transfers

Cons: - suddenly caused system to not post after 6 months of use

Other Thoughts: Crazy failure caused symptoms that looked like a bad motherboard, bad power supply and it all goes back to this thing. I plug it in, no POST. I unplug it, POST.

2 out of 5 eggsBent CF Pin

Pros: Definitely read my UDMA CF cards fast.

Cons: As at least one other reviewer has noted, the CF pins apparently aren't very strong and/or the guide for the CF card isn't aligned well with them.

Other Thoughts: I really liked this while it was working. I've used CF readers for a long time now and this is the first one I've ever seen get a bent pin. I'm pretty disappointed.

1 out of 5 eggsShort Live

Pros: It read card while it works.

Cons: Bad quality. The pins on the CF connector bend and break on less the 1 month in use. The user was a experienced professional photographer who is used to handle a lot of flash cards and flash card readers.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Problems, Works Great

Pros: This reader is great! I haven't had any problems with it in the 6 months I've owned it.
Read and Write speeds on USB 3.0 are limited only by my USB 3.0 flash drive, but I've been getting ~110MB/s Write and the Read speeds are somewhere over 200, but the process finishes to quickly to actually read anything.
My UHS-I Micro SD flash drives also read and write at over 50 MB/s
Monitor LED works fine

Cons: USB port is upside-down, big whoop

2 out of 5 eggsBSOD

Pros: Well, I can make it work, but that's just because I am a computer technician....

[[ Also I have the latest firmware ]]

Cons: Blue Screen of Death
Computer freezes
Something is wrong here... I have tested all the parts of the computer and this is the source of the problem. 100% sure of it.

Now what are my options here? I can return it to get a similar unit ??!

Also who is going to pay for the countless troubleshooting hours I went through.... oh thats right, nobody cares!

Hey silverstone.... if your **** doesn't work with specific hardware, maybe you could tell people that or maybe you could stop selling it ???? Whatever

4 out of 5 eggsGood service

Pros: it is really fast (a GB just takes some seconds); their RMA service is fast and good. I received an RMA number within a day and the new piece within a bit over a week inc. shipping

Cons: the first one had a flaw with the card reader (the USB port worked) and i had to return it. therefore 4 eggs only.

Other Thoughts: Since the first one had failed (the first time ever a component failed on me in 10 years!) i was disappointed. but their RMA service was really great and the new device works great. On the one had failure is not acceptable, on the other hand I'm glad to know they really provide good service.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Its 20 pin connector plugged right into the GA-970A-UD3 motherboard's connector. Much faster transfer of photos from CF and SD cards than with my prior USB2 card reader. Front panel USB3 port provides USB3 speeds for my WD 1TB My Passport portable HD; much more convenient than plugging it in the back of the PC in the motherboard's USB3 connector.

After install, I saw no problem with bootup or anything else using Windows 7.

Definitely provides USB3 speeds for unloading memory cards and connecting USB3 portable hard drives.

Cons: CF port is a little shallow and doesn't provide enough guidance to the card when it is plugged in; I took off 1 egg for this. Would be better if deeper; given the product is not very deep into the case, I don't know why they didn't make it with a deeper and design a better CF port. If they had, this product would be a slam dunk.

I read the other's comments regarding this problem before I bought it, so I have been very careful each time I plug in a CF card to make sure it is going in straight and I don't bend a pin. However, if the product was better designed a user would not have to be so careful.

I agree with the other reviewers that the front panel green LED is a waste. I already know my PC has power. I don't see any purpose for it; maybe for PCs that power down the USB ports when idle??

Other Thoughts: I don't find the "upside down CF port" much of an issue (once you know it is that way). I think they did that on purpose so you can read the user label on the backside of the CF card when the card is plugged in. Which is actually a feature :)

1 out of 5 eggsPiece of Junk

Pros: Pin arrangement out of sync with usb3 spec. Will not work no communication from company when asking for a replacement. Silver stone use to make decent stuff

Cons: Use is in the past tense for all you english majors. They got the last of my american dollar

Other Thoughts: new egg sent on time but why would i want to replace this with another piece of junk from silver stone.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you very much for purchasing a SilverStone and we apologize for the inconvenience you have experienced. The FP37 uses standard USB 3.0 pin-out so if you are having problem making it work, it is likely a firmware issue or the unit you received maybe defective. Please contact us again directly at our US office location for quicker service:

1 out of 5 eggsDied After 4 Months

Pros: It looked nice and seemed to work well - Before It Died.

Cons: The unit died the other day. Before it died, it sucked up 4 more drive letters (for a total of 8), and that did very bad things to my OS. I would have expected better quality control from Silverstone.

Other Thoughts: Since I have purchased other Silverstone products in the past and had good success with them, I opted to buy their USB 3.0 card reader, even though it was the most expensive reader of this type that was then available. I would like to have this defective product replaced, but the combination of the high initial cost and return shipping costs to Newegg makes this a no-win proposition. I will have to think seriously about purchasing Silverstone products in the future if this is the best they can do.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat out of gate, died before finish

Pros: Fast CF Reader. Wife liked silver bezel. USB 3 header cable fit in ASUS Sabertooth X79 with no modification.

Cons: Card feed for CF is not very long, caused bent pin. Would buy again if guide/feed was replaced by something longer.

Other Thoughts: My wife, a professional photographer, recently upgraded her workstation. With the upgrade came the installation of the SST-FP37, she had used it to import photos from five compact flash cards and commented on how fast it was (compared to her previous firewire reader), but she was concerned about the alignment when placing the cards.

Her concern must of been justified, she called me into the room to check on a non-responsive Sandisk Extreme IV 8GB Compact Flash Card, I removed the card and examined it to find a slightly enlarged hole where I discovered pin 40 went into pin 39's socket (bottom right of socket).

Silverstone and newegg both offered to RMA, neither offered to cover shipping costs.
