1 out of 5 eggsKILLS SD CARDS

Pros: Holds cards securely/firmly/etc. USB 3.0

Cons: Kills cards. Killed a SD card and a Micro SD card. They way it accesses the data corrupts something and renders the card inaccessible. Thankfully I found this software called ZAR recovery and was able to get my data back.

Other Thoughts: I read another similar review like mine. I too am looking for a replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsAFT PRO 57u Problem resolved

Pros: Device is well built and is fast. It was easy to install. I have purchased at least 3 different brands of these readers over the last 11 years. This is the best built of the group. If you purchase and install you must also download the newest driver from the their website. www.atechflash.com
Atech Flash Technology, Inc.

Cons: I had a problem with the device connecting and disconnecting every few minutes. I tried all the solutions I knew and researched online. Uninstalled and reinstalled but nothing worked. I finally just stopped the device in device manager (windows 7 pro) and was about to replace it when I saw a review here which recommended contacting customer service at Atech. Best customer service I have received on line, I got a response within one hour and you can try this if you are having the connect/disconnect problem that I was having. From the tech at Atech:

"Can you try the new firmware (0575) from the link below. After you have downloaded and un-zipped the file into a folder, please double-click on the “FWUpgradetool.exe” in the same folder to start the FW update process. Also, please try to disable the "USB selective suspend setting" under the Advanced settings of Power Options."

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/47929092/PRO-57U%20Read-Write%20%280575%29.zip

Hope this helps.

Other Thoughts: I did not take any stars off for the issue because of the quick help from the Atech rep. So far the problem of the disconnect and reconnect issue is gone, and good riddance too!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks very well

Pros: Reads al my memory cards. Activity light on the front panel is a big plus as is the extra USB 3.0 port. Fit into the drive bay is tight and secure. Color is a little off from my case but the color matches the Pioneer Blu ray drive so it is no big deal.

Cons: Took a week to resolve the problem with the card going in and out of service. I was only able to work on the problem in small time increments. I might have deducted an egg but the tech support from AFT was fast, amazing , and fixed the problem. BTW I run Win 7 PRO in the PC.

Other Thoughts: I was getting ready to return the card but took a shot at AFT tech support. Called the tech support number and was asked to leave a voice mail. Took the other option and sent man email. I had a response back from Jackson within 5 minutes with the solution.

5 out of 5 eggsExtra USB3.0 ports and Card Reader

Pros: I needed additional USB3.0 ports and a card reader for a new computer build. This unit works well for this purpose. The construction is sturdy and the USB cable plugs are compatible with either USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 motherboard headers. All functions of the unit are supported by 2 cables and 2 motherboard headers, so you will need 2 available motherboard headers to make full use of this unit.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My build components are as follows: Antec Gaming Series One black steel case, GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD3H motherboard, Intel Core i7-4771 Haswell 3.5GHz LGA 1150 processor, Dynatron K17 92mm CPU cooler, Microsoft Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit, COUGAR A760 model CGR B3-760 760W power supply, CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR memory, LG Black Blu-ray Burner model WH14NS40, LG Black Blu-ray ROM model UH12NS30, AFT PRO-57U USB 3.0 ports and card reader, ASUS Xonar Essence ST PCI Audio Card, Crucial M500 240GB SATA 2.5" 7mm SSD, Western Digital WD Black WD1002FAEX 1TB HDD, Western Digital WD Black WD2002FAEX 2TB, old/recycled HDDs: WD 320 GB WD3200AAJB and Seagate 200 GB ST3200822A, StarTech 1 Port PCIe IDE Controller card (for old recycled IDE hard drives), StarTech PEX1394B3LP PCIe IEEE1394 card, U.S. Robotics USR5638 V.92 PCIe Fax modem.

4 out of 5 eggsPlastic....

Pros: -Reads everything.
-No Software, plug and play.
-Decent looking, in theory. See cons.

Cons: -It's plastic. No I don't just mean the bezel itself, but the entire thing.

No big deal right? well it's also a 8th of an inch short of it's advertised width. What this means is, when you tighten it into the 5.25 bay, there will be a gap on the left or right. Adjust the screws evenly to compensate you say? Brilliant, except for the fact that it's friggin plastic and after continuous adjustment, it's easy to pull out the tiny little nuts embedded in the holes if you aren't careful.

That 8th of an inch is so harsh it almost makes it hard for the little nubby screws to actually reach. Seems nitpicky, but building a $3000 system, I'd like it to look good, and as it sits in my Fractal Arc XL, the gap on the left side is driving me crazy, but there just isn't anything I can do short of whipping out the dremel. I shouldn't have to for the price I paid.

Other Thoughts: Complaining about it is the therapy preventing me from taking off more than a star. The product itself as far as performance, is quality. I like your stuff Atech, but please go with steel or aluminum next time.

5 out of 5 eggsQuick and Working great.

Pros: I bought and AFT XM5U All-in-one USB 2.0 Card Reader for my second build and used it with a Asus p8z77-v Pro motherboard. Plugged in and works great so I chose to buy the AFT PRO -57U for my third build with a Asus p8z77-v pro Motherboard. It also plugged right and and all ports are working great. I Used a Corsair 230T case and it has a tool-less locking system. I ended up having to screw the adapter bay in because it was sloppy and loose otherwise. The finish is a little duller than my case but looks great other wise. This also reads rather quickly and it is great having another 3.0 USB port to use, since my case only has two 3.0 USB ports. I am running window 7 ulimate and began reading right away without any problems. Also has a not overly bright blue light that lights up when in use and not on all the time.

Cons: It would have been nice not to have to screw the Card reader in but all-in-all
Extremely happy. Because of this I thought about giving 4 egg review but totally happy otherwise, so I gave it 5.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Super fast download speeds, clean (all internal) installation, decent build quality

Cons: A bit pricey

Other Thoughts: This was easy to install and works great. Download of RAW picture files and huge video files is much quicker than my previous 2.0 reader...
