Pros: Well-packaged for shipping, and I used FedEX of course. Solid construction, the reader doesn't feel cheap and the bezel is good quality and secured. Fits perfectly into a 3.5" drive bay, and the cable is plenty long enough to reach the USB connectors on any motherboard (you'd have to have a bigger case than I've ever seen in my life otherwise). Plugged it in, booted into Windows, was detected and worked automatically. However, if you load the drivers from the CD, the drive icons and names change to identify them as which specific media they accept.
Cons: No cons. I wanted to avoid cheap readers from all the problems I've heard, and I couldn't be happier. Anyone wanting a quality built product that is sturdy and works properly, look no further.
Overall Review: It's true what a previous poster mentioned, that the silver bezel is loose in the box (though it has foam padding and the bubble wrap from the reader to protect it). But the bezel plastic is so thick and sturdy, that must've been a factory screwup.
Comments: Just got these speakers as a birthday present, as my headset was beginning to show it's age. I was thoroughly surprised. Good bass, good mids and highs, just overall decent sound quality. I play plenty of games, and they perform admirably. Don't let the price fool you, if you're not looking for a surround sound setup, then look no further.
