1 out of 5 eggseSATA doesnt' work - twice now!

Pros: The USB and card readers work.

RMA process easy and quick.

Cons: The first unit worked fine, except for the eSATA port, so I returned it. ** The replacement unit has the same problem. **

The eSATA port doesn't work even with a Vantec external drive case with eSATA port. That same external drive works fine with a different eSATA port on my system.

So this is a major disappointment, because it's clearly a design problem.

Also, this unit is designed to fit in a 3.5" drive bay. I bought a 5.25" to 3.5" drive bay adapter, and the unit mounts at an angle, like the mount screws aren't lined up properly.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with the Vantec 2.5" external drive bay cases. I have three of them, no problems.

2 out of 5 eggsNot impressed

Pros: Takes SD Micro cards

Cons: Cheaply Made, No rails for Compact Flash Orientation. CF installs inverted. This may actually be the correct way because the side that you write on is up, but its opposite to other readers. The lack of rails is a real problem though.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to deal with my Compact Flash Cards, which I use in my pro level Digital SLR's Instead of having continuous rails to orient the card on insertion, there are only two little protrusions on the face plate. When you extract the card the protrusions get hung up on the indents in the side of the card pulling the face off the unit. Bad design. It is also a small size unlike a typical CD drive, and my new case (Corsair) did not come with face plates for 3.5 inch units. This could be Corsairs fault, but I wish I had purchased a full sized unit with about three USB 3.0 Slots. I guess the micro SD slot is nice, but I have adapters to SD so I dont need that slot. I am not impressed with the quality, or lack thereof at all. I would have paid more for a quality unit, but all of these card readers are very cheaply made.IMO

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Much faster transfer speed vs USB 2.0, when using cards that will take advantage of it. Installed on Win7 system without difficulty. Unlike other very annoying readers, empty slots do not show up as a separate connected device. Solid build with good fit and finish. Clean looking face.

Cons: USB slot is a bit of a tight fit. Not enough to deduct a star, though.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's fast

Cons: Micro SD slot is hard to get a card out once inserted, unless you have really good fingernails

Other Thoughts: I would buy again, has everything I need to upgrade an older case with USB 3, audio ports.

5 out of 5 eggsCard Reader with USB 3.0

Pros: The unit is well made and connects easily to the MB headers needed to support it. Not too busy looking on the face, simple is good here. Mini SD is a plus.

Cons: None
