Pros: It works, and is fast.
Cons: Requires one 20 pin internal connection and one connection that runs outside the case. I would have preferred if it had plug-in connectors on the back of the reader and cables / adapters to use use internal or external ports. For me, it was the best solution as provided, but...
Other Thoughts: I tested a few different types of cards and USB devices and they all work just fine.
It seems that most of my USB keys have status lights such that when I plug them in, the status light is facing down and I can not see it. This reader continues that trend. My solution was to mount the card reader upside down so that I can read my status lights since I do that often.
I had no problem reading any card that I dropped into this device, and, it was pretty fast. I am very happy at the moment with this device. I hope that it has good longevity.
Pros: It worked
Other Thoughts: What can I say? I needed an adapter for my USB3 card, ant it worked like a charm.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It worked out the box with Linux (fedora 20) 3.13.6-200; no extra drivers required.
Cons: Would be nice if it had more USB3 ports.
Other Thoughts: Would have been nice to have more ports, especially internal. I purchased this specifically because it has a 20 pin connector. I connected this to Thermaltake AC0031 USB 3.0 Support MS Slot, CF Slot, SD Slot,Extreme Slot, Micro SD Slot, M2 Port Multi-Card Reader (see http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820153002) and it just worked. Boy was it fast. I also connected to an external USB3 hard drive for testing, and that was fast as well. I would buy this again with no hesitation.READ FULL REVIEW
