Pros: Looks great, controls are easy to access, but out of the way.
Cons: Packaging was kind of flimsy. Built in handle was torn on arrival - it could have been a heartbreaker if I didn't notice before I picked it up to bring it upstairs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Reads a variety of cards PLUS floppies, because you need to read a floppy about 3 times over the life of the computer.
Cons: Product title implies it's a USB device - this is incorrect, you still need the floppy connection. Directions are non-existent, so if this is your first build (like it was for me), please note, 1) you need a floppy cable to connect it to the mobo (not included), 2) it is possible install the cable incorrectly to the card reader, so if the floppy doesn't read, but the other cards do, reconnect the cable, and 3) you need to connect the power supply to reader. All of these items have been previously commented on, so hopefully you were not like me, and read the comments thoroughly before installing.
Other Thoughts: If you are building a new system, install this AFTER you install your OS. I installed XP Hone and XP assigned all the media drives and floppy letter names before the HDD. My HDD was labeled F:, and I had to remove the media reader, reformat so XP labeled the HDD C:, then reinstall the media reader. I don't think you will have this problem with XP Pro, not sure about Vista, but why chance it?READ FULL REVIEW

Cons: Can think of any.
