Don't use the ext power cable!

Pros: Card reader was useful to me for the past 1+ year of ownership. So was the USB. I recently tried using the power jacks for an external drive enclosure (see below).

Cons: The 5V and 12V *jacks* for external drives work properly. In fact, if you look at the 4pin molex on the back of this card reader you'll find that the pinning lines up the yellow 12V and red 5V lines the correct way. If you then test the jacks on the front panel of the card reader you'll also find the plug labelled 12V indeed produces 12V of juice and the 5V produces 5V of juice.

It's not the card reader, it's the "custom" cable that Silverstone shipped with this unit. The cable reverses the 5V and 12V pins and will fry anything you hook up to it. I went through 2 drives until I figured this out.

Don't use the cable shipped by Silverstone.

Other Thoughts: You might think you can just swap the 12V and 5V barrel plugs and get the right voltage but you can't because the two plugs have a different diameter (which is correct, that's the way it should be for this device). It's not a matter of the manufacturer putting the wrong labels on the wrong ends of the cable either.

I came to my conclusions using careful testing with a multimeter. The card reader itself is 100% functional in my opinion, but you can't ship crummy cables with no QA process. Silverstone fried 2 of my hard drives, hence they get 1 egg.

Voltages ok.

Comments: The 5 eggs is misleading since all I have used is the USB, which worked fine. I don't feel I can take away any eggs since I haven't witnessed any problems, yet I didn't really want to give it 5 eggs without having used it a bit, but I have installed it in a friend's computer so I won't get that opportunity. The reason I am writing this review is to mention that I have measured the voltages on the front panel power pins and the 12 V is indeed 12V and the 5V is 5V. Perhaps this problem is only on older units. Also the front panel cable reached my front panel header on a standard ATX board just fine. My case is a somewhat small mid tower. Unfortunately I forgot to measure the length before install, but I just put a ruler up to it in the case and I guesstimate that the front panel wires are about 18" long. I hope this helps someone with their purchasing decision.

Nice Card Reader

Comments: I have used another model Silverstone Card Reader in the past, and have had good luck. I am happy with the purchase of this FP35B and I would buy another one if needed.

Poor Quality

Pros: Nice Idea. I bought this because I wanted a unit with HD audio jack, card reader and Esata.

Cons: First unit had a short in audio jack due to poor soldering. I removed a glob that was touching its case but it still had a lot of background noise in the headphone jack. I returned it to Silverstone ($11 more invested) the noise in the replacement was worse and the Esata port is non functional.

Other Thoughts: I had a Silverstone SST-FP32-B and it has very clear sound and worked great (No card reader or Esata.) I went with a Rosewill card reader and am using the AC97 jack in the AeroCool fan controller. This thing is a waste of time and money.

Good, not great

Comments: That this panel comes with a silver front panel was a major purchasing decision factor here.
Newegg: why don't you have a SINGLE dvd/blueray drive with anything but black panels? Sure, they may sell better, but you may lose a few sales too.

The CF card reader uses USB instead of SATA, so it's rather slow. It also can't read the serial number off a CF card (this shouldn't matter for most users, but if you depend on it for e.g. backups, it won't work).
