Not a very good reader

Edward E., Newegg
28 February 2008
  • Summary: As much as I love having this in the case, I have ordered a Sandisk Extreme reader to replace this. Their firewire version is 40MB/s. Their USB 2.0 reader is only about 5 bucks more than this. Unfortunately, you can't find those readers on here at this time. I had to order it elsewhere.
  • Pros: Very conveneient to have mounted in a drive bay and not sitting on the desk.
  • Cons: SLOW. Try 2.5MB/s speed max. for Compact Flash. Better USB readers are 20MB/s and don't cost much more. The Compact Flash slot is shallow and allows the card to flex. I was careful with it, and it still only took a couple of months until one of the pins bent badly. Even as little as this costs, i...

  • Pros: no driver needed for Vista or Linux (Gutsy Gibbon) Pretty fast
  • Cons: RMA'd the first order. There was only one wire comming out of the RMA'd device. The new one has two wires comming out and joining at the usb header.

Lasted a week

  • Pros: Worked for a week great.
  • Cons: After a week and only reading two memory cards with it, it ceased to work. No amount of rebooting or reinstalling fixed it. Glad it was inexpensive. I ordered another of a different brand.

Not bad for price...

Micheal B., Newegg
15 May 2007
  • Summary: My first case arrived with the front panel broken off, but was shipped a perfect replacement very quickly. I can't comment about the power supply, since I didn't use the one that came with the case. Overall, not a bad case for the price, as long as you get one that's not broken.
  • Pros: Decent looking beige case, matches well with my floppy and cd drives. Price.
  • Cons: Side panels are EXTREMELY flimsy.

Worthless

Frank K., Newegg
14 May 2007
  • Summary: Hopefully they will provide drivers for Vista (86 + 64) sometime and this will solve the problems. For now it is taking up space and it isn't worth my time to remove as it just sits there.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: No Vista drivers. Same problem as Fickle, shows the drives after you get thru the 8+ install failures, then won't show up again until the same procedure is gone thru after unplugging and recycling.

Fickle

Jake S., Newegg
4 May 2007
  • Summary: It didn't cost much, so I'm not too sore about it.
  • Pros: Looks good, clean. Adds a front USB port if you have the available headers on your motherboard.
  • Cons: Randomly stops functioning when a card is inserted. All of the drives (which is what each slot shows up as) will disappear in Windows, and it will not start functioning again until it is physically unplugged from and replugged to the motherboard. Just restarting won't always get it detected by Wi...

Does not work with 4G SD cards

Robert K., Newegg
1 March 2007
  • Pros: Cheap Probably works with lots of other cards
  • Cons: Does not work with 4G SD cards (note I have not tested with HDSD, just SD). Fits in the space for a floppy drive just fine
