Summary: Its not the case of a single defective product, but rather the way a company can continually produce junk to sell at market value. Its simple unjustifiable. And this is not the only type of product I purchased from them.
Pros: When it worked it performed as intended.
Cons: Failed after just a few months of light use. Ordered a second, more "updated" version for a different computer which failed under the exact same circumstances. Coincidence? No just cheap garbage.
Summary: The way that you can tell the card reader goes bad is usually each slot on the card reader shows up as a different drive letter. One day my Vista x64 Home Premium told me it couldn't load/find the drivers for a device, and next thing I know I don't have any drive letters for each slot.
Pros: 52-in-1 card reader. Nice blue lights to match the other blue lights on my Antec 900 case and fans.
Cons: My original one died on me about 2 months after I got it. It couldn't read any cards, only the USB port worked. I got an RMA from newegg, got my new one and it died about a week later.

Summary: Don't waste your money. Save the time and wasted cash on this unit and get a good one. I just ordered the AFT XM-35U because it looks like a really well put together unit. Again don't waste your money.
Pros: Not a single one
Cons: Card reader is not mounted well. Screws are all striped and the mounting screw holes are not threaded, on mine. Would not properly fit in a 3.5" bay and cards do not insert correctly.
