Green Light

Joseph D., Newegg
24 April 2009
  • Summary: Many have issues with the green light. I have had no issues with any Intel branded motherboards. I have had mixed results with the Asus boards that I presently use. My guess is that it has to do with power supplied to the USB when the computer is off. There may be a BIOS setting to fix that.
  • Pros: I have installed several of these over the past couple of years or so. It's the only one I'll buy. The older units will not read SDHC memory cards, but not really a problem for me. Readers I've purchased over the last year have no problem reading them. Other than that, they read all of the SD and...

It works

Caleb W., Newegg

  • Summary: I can see where the light on the front would be a con, but my case has a door that covers it so I don't notice it.
  • Pros: It works just fine reads cards well enough for my needs.
  • Cons: It didn't fit the rails on my tooless case, so I had to modify the rails. Vista recognized it as a generic USB drive, but it didn't work like that had to install the drivers.

  • Pros: Works great, has 52 card compatibility, reads SDHC cards and is compatible with vista 32bit without having to download drivers. Detects the cards fast and doesnt seem to have any speed problems like other reported. Screws and an extra beige faceplate are a plus as well as an extra usb 2.0 port.
  • Cons: Two lights on the device are pretty much always on even when the computer is turned off. Only way to shut them off is either cover the light with black tape or pull out the computer plug. Not really a problem though.

Some assembly required

Adam K., Newegg
10 December 2008
  • Summary: I fixed it by pushing the metal connector out of the plug with the prong of a tweezer. Stripped the black wire. Crimped the metal connector on to the wire. Re-insert the metal connector in to the plug. Faster and easier than RMA! Good as new!
  • Pros: Works with 64bit Vista, plug and play! No downloads, no drivers. Reads many cards, very fast!
  • Cons: Inspect the female plug you would attach to the motherboard. Mine had a black ground wire dangling off to the side where all the other wires became one with the plug. Luckily I noticed before trying to use it. Bad QC? Cheap Wire? Dumb luck?
