5 out of 5 eggsWell you get what you pay for

Pros: -Fits 5.25 bay (many cases have done away with 3.5 inch bays so no adapter plate needed).
- Looks sharp.
- Drivers are very good (you get little icons for the cards)
- Works consistently

Cons: - It only comes in black.
- A bit pricey compared with other memory card readers.

Other Thoughts: I had another brand of memory card reader (Started with an R and ended in a will and is a type of flower). The unit worked good. But then it started to behave intermittently and freeze the computer. I initially thought my USB header on the MOBO died. However, some diagnostics proved otherwise. Saw that this unit had great reviews and gave it a go. Glad I did, great reader. A bit expensive but you definitely get a quality product. Would definitely recommend.

4 out of 5 eggsOh My Supreme Deity it works

Pros: Works like it should, one cable to mobo USB header, fits front panel.

Cons: Only one USB connector, flimsy construction, no USB 3.0, no eSATA, pricey for such a basic unit.

Other Thoughts: After trying two other (cheaper) front panel card readers, I tried this one out of desperation. It is the ONLY one that functions with my Dell Precision T1650. It's fairly expensive for such a basic reader and looks like it was stamped in a clamshell packaging machine. I could try another that has everything I want (USB 3.0, eSATA) but at this point I give up. As someone else remarked, why oh why can't they make one of these that isn't a piece of cr@p?

4 out of 5 eggsWorks very Well

Pros: Feels like a quality component instead of like a cheap plastic toy. Fit in the case perfectly. Accepts all of the card types that I needed and then some.

Cons: A little pricey but it rated better than the other internal card readers I looked at so I spent the extra money.

Other Thoughts: Does not come with drivers, you need to download them from their website.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card Reader

Pros: Good M/B connector cables (takes 2 x USB 2.0), good length, not too fat. Solid connection to card reader as well, didn't get the feeling the cable would slide off. Nice blue light. Ports are clearly identified. Fits nicely in a 5.25" bay.

Cons: Blue light is always on, not just for read/write activity. If you are mounting it for under the desk it would be silly to try to read the small white lettering identifying the ports.

Other Thoughts: Ports for card reader are keyed to work one way only. Color coding the slots would be clownish. I never have actually used it to read/write to a card, though I have used the USB and it worked. It looks good, and that's what matters, who cares if it works anyway?

5 out of 5 eggsso far, so good

Pros: Easy to install
Easy to Use

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: I bought this because my wife is a photographer. She is always using the SD cards on the computer. We were using external card readers, but they were garbage. This one appears to be worth the money.

4 out of 5 eggsOK but with reservations

Pros: Seems to work with any cards that I've tried

Cons: - Being all black, its very difficult to see the card slot (I painted a white outline around the slots.)
- Relatively high cost

Other Thoughts: Some mechanical impediment developed in the SD slot whereby an SD card could not be inserted fully. The mfr did fix it under warranty.

With the upgrade of some on my electronics, I can now get by with just an SD reader and no longer need any of the other slots.
