4 out of 5 eggsnMedia All-in One Card Reader

Pros: Fits nicely in my Antec case with the addition of a 3.5 to 5.25 bay adapter. With the little testing I have completed (e.g. reading an SD card and testing the USB port) everything seems to be working as described.

Cons: SD cards must be pushed into the slot upside down.

Other Thoughts: This is more about adapting the Antec case to accommodate the card reader. In the 5.25 bays there are only screw holes on the left side of the case to mount any 5.25 device. It appears that the right side of a device is supposed to be held in by a friction fit. Doesn't work with the card reader as you must push the SD cards to seat them in the reader. Doing so pushes the right side of the card reader into the bay. Drilling several holes in the case on the right side so that mounting screws could be used solved the problem.

4 out of 5 eggs4 years old

Pros: Still ticking!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Item certainly shows longevity. It has been used in a media PC so it probably as had an SD inserted and ejected at least once a day for the last four years or so.

4 out of 5 eggsAbout a 10% failure rate.

Pros: Works great, when it works. I've purchased several in the last year since they're relatively cheap.

Cons: I've had about 1 in 10 die after 6 months or so in various customer builds.

Other Thoughts: Good for the money. If you're only buying one for your own system, I might spend a bit more and get a more reliable unit.

2 out of 5 eggsSo-so

Pros: Very cheap, and a bonus USB slot on the front.

Cons: Other card slots never worked, though occasionally it would light as having detected something.

Other Thoughts: Likely better off buying something different. USB slots are a dime a dozen. Price was right for a cheap addition, and I DO use it, but likely going to get something else to replace.

5 out of 5 eggsFits a Need

Pros: Works as advertised. I liked that it gave me a USB 2.0 port on the front to compliment my cases dual USB 3.0 front ports. UBS 3.0 ports have been reported to, on occasion, not play well with some older USB devices.

Cons: Not really a con given the price, but it does not come with a 3.5 to 5.25 inch bay bracket.

Other Thoughts: This reader works well if your case has only a single USB 3.0 header on your motherboard that you want to use for your cases own USB 3.0 front ports. The USB 3.0 multi card readers that I have seen, only operate in USB 3.0 mode on the reader's UBS port, while the card ports still only work in USB 2.0 mode.
So, why waste a USB 3.0 header on your motherboard if you don't need to, for a multi-card reader (unless you don't have other USB 3.0 ports on the front of your case..

4 out of 5 eggsDusty after no use!

Pros: Fast detection, bonus USB slot, and fits in a 2.5" drive.

Cons: 1. As everyone else has been saying: I need to put SD card upside down!

2. The card reader became dusty after two months of no-use; thus, unreadable. Here's my story: I inserted my SD card, PC asked me to format card before use (like card was brand new or something). This was strange because I knew I had information on the card. I took out card, and a a thick layer of dust covered the gold connectors. I had to blow the dust off the card and out of the device for everything to work. All in all, I would recommend preparing a can of air duster -- or heave a deep breath!

Other Thoughts: Excellent device, but I would prefer two USB ports in the front instead of one. In addition, please make them USB 3.0, which is backwards compatible with usb 2.0 and usb 1.1!

4 out of 5 eggsEasy to install, works as expected

Pros: Easy to install, low price card reader. Pretty simple device, hard to say much more. One more USB port on the front of my box now, but the card readers are the real perk,

Cons: No real cons. The cable is a little short, fit in my mid-tower no prob, but if you were trying to put this on the top of a full tower, you might have an issue with the cord.

Other Thoughts: Recommended.

4 out of 5 eggsHad to modify to fit

Pros: Once I was able to install, they worked well.

Cons: I had to cut off about ½ an inch from the back so they would fit in SFF dells. Also, they could also use a screw hole on both sides of the front so the right side could be held down also instead of just one side. There is ½ inch of excess metal that could be eliminated & save the manufacturer a bit of money.

Other Thoughts: This was the 2nd brand of card reader I purchased at least I was able to modify these. Trying to upload a picture instead of a video. Red dot is where I had to drill for a screw hole & also shows where excess metal needs cut off. well so much for loading a picture.

5 out of 5 eggsGood card reader

Pros: Nice looking card-reader, works as expected, no issues in Windows 8

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Placed it inside a Bytecc 3.5" to 5.25" drive bay adapter, to get it into my NZXT Phantom.

Inserting SD cards confused me the first time, as you have to insert them upside-down... I tried to insert it right-way up and it wouldn't insert, but slides in nicely when upside-down.

Windows 8 found it and handles it perfectly.
