Cool design 8/7/2018 12:20:16 PM

Looks great, reader only USB 2.0! First one DOA, second one works fine. 1/18/2016 9:46:29 AM

Pros: Looks great, second unit appears to be working well. Decent cable length

Cons: Card reader is ONLY USB 2.0. The USB 3.0 ports are simply a pass through from m/b. Requires USB 2.0 header and a USB 3.0 header.

Overall Review: First unit card reader did not work at all. RMA through Newegg took 2 weeks, but with the holidays I guess that is to be expected.

Pretty but misleading... 12/12/2014 7:11:07 AM

Pros: Looks pretty, has USB 3.0 ports on the front.

Cons: If you're buying this as a card reader, be forewarned, this is not a USB 3.0 card reader! This is a pretty USB 2.0 card reader, with a pair of USB 3.0 ports tacked on. If you're a photographer that shoots a lot, you probably won't be happy with the USB 2.0 speeds. The manufacturer's photos show the big blue USB 3.0 motherboard header predominantly, and the USB 2.0 header is a blurry afterthought. Sadly, this product is a blurry afterthought if you want to use it for anything other than the askew USB 3.0 ports on the side.

Overall Review: I'm super sad that I bought this item, and that I'm not going to be able to use it in my case because it would be a complete waste of space and two motherboard headers. It's somewhat poorly constructed - even the manufacturer's photographs show the USB 3.0 ports are misaligned (mine are too - and others have mentioned this defect).

Manufacturer Response:
Hello, Valued NZXT Customer,

We do apologize for the inconvenience, at this time yes thought there are two usb 3.0 headers the card reader on the other hand is spec’d for a 2.0 bandwidth rate. For further information on the Aperture M, i have gone ahead and supplied you a link offering the specs for the product itself http://www.nzxt.com/product/detail/97-aperture-m-case-accessory.html . We do apologize again if you have any further questions or concerns feel free to contact our NZXT Support.

Regards,
NZXT Support.

Works well, matches up with Cooler Master HAF case design 12/2/2014 8:30:07 AM

Pros: Despite negative reviews, the product works well for me. It matches the black mesh design of the Cooler Master HAF series of cases almost perfectly.

Cons: For me, there are no cons.

Overall Review: If you're doing a build in a HAF case, it's a nearly perfect match with the case design. Even if you aren't, it's a great addition that satisfies the need for front panel USB 3.0 and a card reader with one convenient component.

Excellent 11/29/2014 7:02:01 AM

Pros: Works! Internal usb header. Good looking.

Cons: a little pricey, and large, requiring 5.25" anterior slot which can be a valuable spot depending on your needs/equipment(i.e. DVD burner, hot swap drive bays).

Overall Review: the fascia is an exact match for my case making it look stock. Front usb3 plus card readers extremely useful and ergo dynamic, really updating the case.

Can't edit reviews : last update... 9/27/2014 9:26:07 AM

Pros: Mesh looks nice for my context, but now it's been unmounted and

Cons: Apart from the looks, everything is a con :
1) USB 2.0 for the car readers. Even though one can see the little USB 2.0 plug on one of the pictures, they don't mention this, and they can't expect that we "observe and scrutinize" the product ONLINE before buying, like if we were in a bricks-and-mortar store (!!)

2) The only thing which is USB 3.0 have its ports crooked and unusable, from factory it seems (I've read other people having the same issue at Amzon.ca with that same product)

Overall Review: After reading forums about this product, NZXT knows that it's flawed, but they're still trying to sell it (and merchants still keep it in their inventory for the sale). This is ROGUE business : "buy it and have the pleasure to trash it yourself"...

Some people wonder how we pollute the planet? Major actors are like this company building and selling broken stuff that they know you'll throw in the garbage : IMHO they should NOT be in business, it's criminal in terms of honesty (they robbed my money) and for the environment they're filling with their trashed stuff.

Warning 9/19/2014 5:04:02 AM

Pros: Stylish, easy to install and can read anything

Cons: WARNING - the external USB jack is 3.0 but the card reader headers are only USB 2.0. Manufacturer customer support was prompt with their reply to my slow transfer report and admitted their advertising might not be perfectly clear.
