2 out of 5 eggsworks but annoying

Pros: it works. I can access my sdcard.

Cons: 1. very annoying - in windows expolorer I now have 5 extra permanent removable drives displayed even though nothing is plugged into them. my last card reader didn't do this - so annoying.
2. has 3 USB ports. My desktop has 2 on the front already and most do. 3 extras seems a bit pointless.
3. required a lot of cabling. I had to hook in SATA, USB, and a 15p SATA power for which I didn't have an extra power cable resulting in me having to purchase a molex to 15p sata converter.

Other Thoughts: I think I should have just looked for a USB connected card reader I could just plug in when needed. That would have been better.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat card reader

Pros: easy install, user friendly. This card reader was an awesome investment. Very pleased with my purchase. The three usb ports have come in very handy. I had only two (2) usb 2.0 ports on the front of my tower before installing card reader, now I have (5) 2.0 usb ports available.

Cons: No cons to date.

Other Thoughts: On my next build I will purchase the same Rosewill RDCR-13001 USB 2.0 All in One Internal Card Reader w/ 3 ports USB 2.0 Hub / eSATA port / Extra silver fascia panel / SATA Power

5 out of 5 eggsNice!

Pros: Nice little card reader for the price plus it has 3 usb port's and a 5 volt plug that comes with a cable and an esata plug for external hdd. All on the front for you. I can't see where the light is too bright as some have claimed unless you get down at eye level with it and even then it's not that bright to me. Like I've said in my other review's read the instruction's first. Just remember you will have to get into your pc case to plug the cable's into your motherboard. If you have or can get a layout of your mother board it will help you a lot. They are pretty easy to find if you search for then on the internet. If you want to put this into a 51/4 bay you will have to get an adapter kit as I did. The sata power cable plugs right into any available sata power plug on the power supply cable. (Nice!) The other sata cable plugs into your motherboard. Then just plug the usb cable into an available usb on your motherboard and your all set. There is also another face plate included so you can have black or silver.

Cons: None really as of yet.

Other Thoughts: If a 51/4 bay adapter was included with this it would be nice.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as it should

Pros: simple installation, everything in working order. Tested with SD, Micro SD, USB and all good.

Cons: No cons that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I did the mistake of not paying attention to the size and had to buy a 5.25 Bay converter, not a big deal everything worked out great. It feels a little cheap but at it's price point that's expected.

5 out of 5 eggsCompletely satisfied

Pros: I installed it into a 5 1/4 bay. Installation was very easy.
I only have used the SD slot and USB so far, no problems found.

Cons: None I have found! Thanks Rosewill :)

Other Thoughts: You do need a decrotive faceplate for your PC case if you install it in the larger bay.

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

4 out of 5 eggsSolid at it's price point.

Pros: Two faceplates: Silver and Black. I don't really see a problem with this as it seems to be the standard of colors for COTS computers these days. "whiteboxes" that are actually white in color seem to be less and less common and the black faceplate could compliment almost any color. However, this item is cheap plastic and one could easily be painted. I imagine with how small it is, it would be easy to match some hobbyist paint to whatever case you have if that were important. For the price point, that wouldn't be a bad option for this device.

Numerous formats: "75-in-1." I only tested this out with MicroSD, SD, eSATA, USB, and CF. All of them perform as well as any other USB->Card device. I have an old MiniSD from my old Sidekick 3 but I haven't gotten it to work just yet however it is advertised as working. I'm sure it's something wrong with me and not the device. Also interesting to note is that it includes a smaller 6v cable for various electronics that can use this. I'm not sure of the current output of such a plug, but I would imagine it's at least 350mA. This should power many small electronics that require 6v and less than 500mA such as an external hard drive or some other peripheral.

Simple install: If you have a custom case with only 5.25 bays then hopefully you kept a converter handy. I know those are becoming more uncommon these days, but there is no 5.25 converter included with this device. There are three connections to make: SATA, Power, and the USB motherboard connection. I have a mid-ATX Coolermaster which is a rather large, but cluttered case. The cables are able to reach around my enormous crossfired 6950's and reach the front, no problems.

Build: It feels cheaply constructed. I know Rosewill products are manufactured for the lower price point. This isn't a problem in my eyes since it's priced appropriately for it's build quality. I can't speak for longevity, however, for I have only been running it for a couple weeks now.

Cons: I don't think there are any cons with this device so far as I can tell. The LEDs do not seem overly bright, as I have noticed others mention. I understand it might be nice to be able to disable the LEDs but I also understand that such a feature would likely be for a device priced well above $20..

Other Thoughts: If you're in the market for a multi-card reader and have an extra $20 to shell out then you can't really go wrong with this. It won't break the bank, works well, and is simple to install. This device is intended for quick, easy access to unload or load a memory card or portable device from a centralized location on your desktop. Some others to consider if you require USB 3.0 would be either Rosewill's own RDCR-11003 or numerous other similar devices by Agptek [$16], nMEDIAPC, koutech, Silverstone, and Thermaltake- many of the latter costing an additional $10 to $25+.

Bottom line: It's not a solid, high quality 5-star device assembled with the most expensive components that will give you many years of flawless operation. Or at least it doesn't feel this way. It is, however, a functional, versatile, and affordable multi-reader that seems worth every penny of the modest $20 price tag.

3 out of 5 eggsSome Ups, Some Downs...Overall Average

Pros: I was on vacation when this little guy came in the mail for me to review. This internal card reader is pretty neat device. Luckily I still had an open bay in a rig I built a couple years back to test this thing out. Setup is pretty easy to begin with (for those who are used to installing this type of device in a computer). Out of the package, you just slide into an empty bay and plug in the three cords (Power, SATA and USB). The cords may look short, but actually will fit most regular sized cases. Windows 7 handles the rest of the install. All-in-all it took me 5 minutes to install and test.

One thing I liked about the device: Interchangeable face plates (Black and Silver). It really allows for that tiny bit of customization when working with silver cases…I just wish they would have created a face plate that was white for those rising in popularity white cases.

Another good thing is the amount of cards this thing can read. Out of all of my memory cards for different gaming, phone and camera devices, it could handle them all.

One weird pro: It has a 5V DC port…I am not too sure which device would use this, but if I run across one in the future at least I’ll have it.

ESATA is always nice to charge those phones/cameras that charge through US when you shut off your computer.

Cons: -Like I stated in the pros, I wish it had a white face plate because I am planning another build with a white case I have my eye one.

-The LED’s are a bit bright and annoying. I know they are there to make sure the you know the device is connected and working, but I wish they would tone it down a bit on the LED’s.

-Only USB 2.0, not USB 3.0…with more and more motherboards supporting USB 3.0, you would have thought that Rosewill would have opted to add it into the reader…but I guess not. Kind of disappointed by this fact alone.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it is super easy to install. It reads almost any memory card you might have, but it has its downsides. Hopefully Rosewill in their next line of card readers will fix the cons I listed to make one awesome device. Still, it is a good device for those looking for memory card readers for those who can overlook those cons.

4 out of 5 eggsHandy with an annoyance

Pros: Performance:
The device works as expected. Windows 7 knows enough to hide the bays that don't have a card plugged in. Also with Windows 7, you don't need to install any drivers, it does it automatically.

Build quality:
This seems like it is good build quality. I like how it is a solid drive instead of having the back opened like my other card reader.

The installation was very easy. It slides into the drive bar and has three cords. One power, one SATA, and one front panel USB connector. I did not have a problem with the length of the cords (in case anyone was wondering). The cords seem short but they are long enough for inside the case. Unless you have a huge case, the cords should be long enough.

-works how it is supposed to
-solid build
-easy installation
-2 face plates (black and silver)

Cons: Blue light:
The only con is the blue light. Whenever your computer is on, that annoying blue circle is on too. When you plug in a memory card, a dimmer green light turns on so why does it need that bright blue one? It is a good color blue but still too bright and direct. On the bright side (haha), since I don't usually need a card reader, the blue light reminds me that I have one.

-everlasting bring blue light

Other Thoughts: Overall I cant complain too much. It has a lot of functionality, works how it is supposed to (hopefully it keeps working), and was easy to install. The only problem is the bright blue light.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great, hopefully it lasts!

Pros: Supports many different card types, allows file transfer between different cards plugged in (some readers don't do this), 5V DC jack (more on this in other thoughts), comes with silver colored faceplate.

Every port I could test worked fine (I don't own anything that uses M2 or MS/MS Pro) and throughput was fairly good (10-22 MB/sec, depending on the speed of the card). USB 2.0 speeds ranged from 24-30 MB/sec which is all I would have expected from USB 2.0.

Cons: In my experience with these kinds of internal card readers the question isn't 'if' the device will fail, it's 'when'. I have owned many different kinds of internal card readers over the years from various manufacturers, and I think they are all made at the same plant that just slaps a different brand name on the front. The last time I bought one was a few years ago (I finally learned my lesson) and it lasted about a year. Hopefully this card reader by Rosewill will last - although I am a heavy user of card readers so ymmv.

Also the device is only usb 2.0. This doesn't matter too much with card reading/writing speeds, and I believe there is a usb 3.0 reader that has additional usb 3.0 ports.

Other Thoughts: I believe I have purchased 5 or 6 of these kinds of card readers - all of them have failed. I admit that I use them more that most people (I work as a photograher), but the fact remains that every single internal card reader I have ever purchased has failed. Some lasted a year or longer, some lasted less. To have any expectation that a device like this will last forever is a bit naive. Perhaps the quality of this kind of device has improved over the years, only time will tell.

I don't know what kind of device the 5V port is supposed to plug into with the included cable. I can only assume that it is meant for some kind of rosewill external enclosure as every external usb drive I own (I have 4) don't come close to fitting up with the included cable. It's still a nice thing to have, especially if you own something that the included cable works with.
