Nippon Labs USB 2.0 Internal Memory Card Reader 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I bought this mainly for the micro SD slot, and the USB was more of a bonus, both functioned as expected.

Cons: When attempting to reinstall windows 7 on my system I found the process to be far more arduous than usually experienced. Times between steps took 40 minutes rather than a minute. After trouble shooting I finally left it to load long enough for the drive selection. This card reader showed up as a 0.0MB / 0.0MB drive. Out of suspicion I unplugged and went on installing windows from the start. Only after unplugging the device did the install function as expected.

Other Thoughts: If you're having trouble installing any OS it may be this reader.

Rosewill RX-C202 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: heavy, looks good, standard

Cons: i'm sorry for doubting

Other Thoughts: i got this bay so that i could conserve space. I needed both functioning as the drives i planned to use were to be in raid configuration. I was disheartened to find that one of the drives would not register. After an hour of toil deconstructing this perfectly fine mount i found it was the sata data cable causing the issue.

Lesson learned, rosewill hasn't failed me yet.

HyperX 3K 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Fast, nice looking, came with everything but the sata data cable.

Cons: see other.

Other Thoughts: i ordered three of these drives, one for my laptop, and two to set up in raid 0 on my desktop, all to hold the primary os and primary programs.

when i benchmarked the desktop drives in raid 0 i got read speeds of 930mb/s and write speeds of 450mb/s. Although I was elated to get almost twice the advertised read, I only received a little below the advertised write. I'm sure once i get to benchmarking the one in my laptop I'll most likely find speeds to be up to 300mb/s if i'm lucky. I'm just being a bit picky since 450mb/s is really nothing to sneeze at.

At the end of the day, if fidelty is true, i have an almost-256gb drive that costs a wad cheaper than some of the more popular brands these days (but with twice the read speed).
