Pros: It supports all the modern cards I'm aware of and probably some I'm not. Has several USB plugs including two 3.0 "super speed" (Oh in ten years when they will gag at the thought of a mere 5Gb/s being called super anything... But I digress) connectors.
Cons: Took more effort then I'd like to get the thing to work at all. It's been a brick since I got it over six months ago. Was in the case so I tinkered with it tonight... And it came on! Huzzah! USB 2.0 works... USB 3.0 works... SD... Doesn't.... MicroSD... Doesn't....
So while technically not a brick anymore the only, only reason to purchase this product... DOESN'T WORK! Apparently not an uncommon thing from the other reviews here, but I figured it was surely a vocal minority. What where the odds I'd buy a dud?
Other Thoughts: It seemed like just what I needed but since it was DoA for months and non-functional when it decided to actually turn on it turned out to be throwing my money into a fire.
I gave it two eggs because the USB does work so I can't give it lowest score possible. But I wouldn't advise anyone buy this reader.
This review is from: MSI Z87-G43 GAMING LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: It works, eventually. Liking the GUI BIOS after I get used to it. Supports anything I want to do with it. Decent price.
Cons: It was DOA. Had to go through an RMA after discovering the original shipped with bent pins and judging from some trouble shooting I did over some strange stuff it was doing may not have actually supported the newer Haswell CPUs.
Honestly, I though I was buying the G45 with some extra bells and whistles, plus more PCIe slots. I only got this on a misclick, but it works.
