3 out of 5 eggsI have this

Pros: Everything works. Fits well, and its incredibly handy.

Cons: The audio quality is poor. It picks up electromagnetic interference from inside the computer. If you are going to use headphones a lot (like I do) I would highly recommend purchasing some wire shielding for the audio cable and grounding the shielding to the case somewhere. This will cut down on the EMI. Trust me when i say its very noticeable.

4 out of 5 eggsKoutech specifics??

Pros: Card reader is well built. Appearance and fit are excellent in the case.

Cons: The documentation for cable hook ups seems to be lacking. To me it's reassuring when cable items are noted for positive identification from a builders view.

Other Thoughts: An option to remove cables that are not used would be nice. The 3.0 USB route through the case idea needs to be updated to motherboard interier header option. Not having a 1394a header on my motherboard was an accidental oversight on my part.
