This review is from: Koutech RCM1020-B 10-in-1 Front Panel Internal Card Reader with USB Hub / FireWire Repeater / Audio Ports/DC-Out
Comments: This card reader is great. It is a couple of tweaks away from being outstanding. Bringing 3 USB, 2 firewire and the audio connections up front is a great addition to the 10 in 1 card reader. Installation was fine, directions were adequate. Know that the audio and firewire connections are plugged into the back ports on the computer to bring them up front.
A couple things keep this from being outstanding. First is that more than half the time I plug in a USB jump drive or memory card, the computer brings up the warning that the device should not be removed without being stopped. Apparently the connections are pretty touchy but it has never caused a problem. It is more of an annoyance.
Second, the audio connections should have been placed over the power connections. It requires a little maneuvering to plug a jump drive into the USB ports with a headset connected. Again, its not a huge deal, but more of an annoyance. It easier to use the left hand versus the right.
I also didn’t realize that all the drives (card slots, USB ports, Firewire) would be added to Windows as removable drives. They work fine but they can be stopped. I am not sure if you stopped one, if you would have to unplug the connection again to start it, but the possibility worries me.
Overall though, this pretty much works like it is supposed to.
