Allows to add 2 more USB3.0 on PC front panel and having Adds Slim Optical Drive on on one 5.25" bay, which is nice and has integrated SSD 2,5" bay. USB3.0 header cable connects to motherboard USB3.0 header plug. Same time allows to hot-swap SSD 2.5" for backing data (it has small door and integrated bay to fit SSD in). Included 4 reg. screws to mount it to 5.25" PC bay and 2 little screws to mount Slim Optical Drive inside of adapter. I mounted Pioneer BDC-TD03HA optical drive inside it has SATA-Slim connector type so had to buy cable for that separate. Pioneer BDC-TD03HA optical drive often comes built in housing which allows USB interface to use it externally, but in order to get it work internally with SATA interface need remove USB housing. This 5.25" bay adapter looks nice on the front of my PC has shiny chromed SSD bay door.
No multimedia card reader on this 5.25" bay adapter. No SATA-Slim or IDE-mini cables included which is required in order to connect Slim Optical Drive so will have to buy it separate.
I would rather prefer to have SD-card reader than SSD bay in this 5,25" bay adapter.
