Hanns-G HG-216DPO Silver/Black 21.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Looks great, controls are easy to access, but out of the way.

Cons: Packaging was kind of flimsy. Built in handle was torn on arrival - it could have been a heartbreaker if I didn't notice before I picked it up to bring it upstairs.

MITSUMI Black 1.44MB 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Reads a variety of cards PLUS floppies, because you need to read a floppy about 3 times over the life of the computer.

Cons: Product title implies it's a USB device - this is incorrect, you still need the floppy connection. Directions are non-existent, so if this is your first build (like it was for me), please note, 1) you need a floppy cable to connect it to the mobo (not included), 2) it is possible install the cable incorrectly to the card reader, so if the floppy doesn't read, but the other cards do, reconnect the cable, and 3) you need to connect the power supply to reader. All of these items have been previously commented on, so hopefully you were not like me, and read the comments thoroughly before installing.

Other Thoughts: If you are building a new system, install this AFTER you install your OS. I installed XP Hone and XP assigned all the media drives and floppy letter names before the HDD. My HDD was labeled F:, and I had to remove the media reader, reformat so XP labeled the HDD C:, then reinstall the media reader. I don't think you will have this problem with XP Pro, not sure about Vista, but why chance it?

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ Windsor Dual-Core 2.6 GHz Socket AM2 65W ADO5200CZBOX Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easy to install, runs cool and fast. This is my first build (don't do a lot of gaming) and would recommend to other first time builders.

Cons: Can think of any.

Other Thoughts: Running with ASUS M2N32-sli wireless, BFG GeForce 8500GT, Crucial Ballistix 2X1GB, windows xp home.
