This review is from: SILVERSTONE SST-FP32B-E Front 4 x USB3.0 Port and HD Audio Ports (Black)
Pros: This is exactly what I needed: Front-mounted USB and audio ports.
It fit perfectly into my ancient Antec PlusView 1000 case, sitting flush and tight with the case's front panel.
The two USB ports in use (see why only two in the Cons) and the audio ports work as described. Just "plug and play"!
Cons: None for the port, but for my Asus Sabertooth 990FX motherboard, which has only one (ONE!!) USB 3.0 header. So, I have a four-port panel but only two are plugged into the board.
I'm a bit of a purist and will not buy a 3.0 to 2.0 USB adapter; though I may look into a getting Silverstone's PCIe expansion card, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815256001 if I really need to use the other two USB ports. For now the cable for those ports are bundled up and tucked away.
Pros: Rock-solid stable. In great shape with no scratches, scuff marks, and most importantly, no dead pixels!
I received this in the originial AlienWare box, packed very well. The shipment included a power cord, and a DVI and HDMI cable.
Cons: No rotation/ pivot, but this is not really a con if you don't care about it.
Other Thoughts: This will be my first foray into the world of multiple monitors, as I just hooked this and an old VGA monitor to my ASUS HD7770, and I'm like a kid at Toys-R-Us!
This monitor was a great find, especially at $150.00!
