StarTech PLATEBLANK Steel Full Profile Expansion Slot Cover Plate - 10 Pack
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Covered a standard slot. 10 in a pack.

Cons: Metal is rather thin. I put this next to my existing slot covers, and it was noticeably thinner. Still, it's not like you apply force to these or anything.

Other Thoughts: I once drilled some holes in a slot cover to route on-board digital IO headers to the outside of my case. I don't think these slot covers would be up for such a task, way too flimsy. However, they block off the empty slots just fine, which is all I bought them for. I remember when slot covers used to come with the computer case. I guess I'm just getting older.

Rosewill RCR-AK-IM5002 USB2.0 75 in 1 internal Card Reader w/ 3 ports USB2.0 Hub / eSATA port / Extra silver face plate / SATA Power
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Adds a card reader and eSATA port to my computer.

Cons: USB ports under-powered (despite external power source via SATA power connector). Cannot read from USB-powered harddrives or even thumbdrives. I would have returned but the card reader and eSATA port seem to work fine, and that's what I really needed.

Small annoyance is that EACH card slot shows up as a disconnected disk in Windows all the time (card inserted or not). 5 extra drives makes it hard to keep track of which drive letter is which. Though I could assign them letters or just map them to folders if I really wanted to.

Other Thoughts: I bought this for the card reader and eSATA port, so the underpowered USB doesn't bug me too much, and the USB ports DO work for my Logitech controller, but I could not successfully read data from any thumb drives or HDDs. I find it odd as I assume the working card-reader is connected to the same USB hub as the 3 USB ports.

Rosewill Low-Profile PCI to 2+1 USB2.0 Cards Model RC-100

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect USB expansion 04/02/2014

This review is from: Rosewill Low-Profile PCI to 2+1 USB2.0 Cards Model RC-100

Pros: Add an extra USB header to any PCI-slot. Powered by PCI bus, no need for extra power connector.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: Needed one more USB header on an old computer, this card fit the bill nicely. No speed or power problems with the card. I used the back-ports to power some speakers and connect to an external HDD for data backups (*separate HDD power source used).
