Hey I Read Cards

Jordan S., Newegg
14 March 2008
  • Summary: Didnt use fans or eSata because I have my stuff on High all the time and dont use ESata....obviously. Rosewill R6A34-BK, E2160 @ 3.0GHZ, GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L, 4GB A-Data 800, 8600GT, Mushkin 580w, Ubuntu 64-bit
  • Pros: Hey I read cards and USB...I can also do eSata if you so wish.
  • Cons: Directions were pretty much terrible. And cable management could get a little tricky if you want to use everything.

ESATA Did Not Work

Anonymous, Newegg
10 March 2008
  • Summary: I got this free with a combo deal, so it didn't bother me that much that the ESATA didn't work. However, it is a little irritating to have a defective part on my computer,
  • Pros: Good feature set. Decent fan controller.
  • Cons: ESATA did not work. Yes my mobo supports hot swap of HD, and my other ESATA bracket works fine. It was not the cable, I checked.

WOOT for eSATA!

Michael C., Newegg
27 February 2008
  • Summary: Didn't hook up the fan control, I'd just have them maxed all the time anyway, nice to have if I ever wanted it though, so not much of a con...
  • Pros: Its all the card reader you could ever want and more! I love that when you install it, typically the floppy ports on a case are dead center in the front, so you can hook up audio/USB devices handily rather than on the bottom edge of the case (as many cases have their USB) or even at the top (dust...
  • Cons: Take your time with cable management or it would be a mess...

Great for the price

Philip K., Newegg
4 February 2008
  • Summary: Fan control is nice but not really needed for me since my fans are on full blast, but hey it works.
  • Pros: Never hooked up a multi-function card reader before but this works just fine. It looks nice in my 3.5 bay and gives me an extra USB port and card readers which is nice since I use SD and M2 cards.
  • Cons: As others have said it is not true front audio since there is no mobo connection. You have to run the provided wires out the back of your case and around. Documentation is weak but can be figured out with some deductive reasoning (I got it on my first try!).

Rosewill does it again!

Anonymous, Newegg
31 January 2008
  • Summary: This make a great option for sound card owners as myself. The fact that this has jacks that connect to the back of my X-FI makes this a perfect buy. I have not been able to use my front audio jacks on my CoolerMaster Centereon case because its wired for a motherboard.
  • Pros: I have a friend that just got one of these as a bonus for buying a hard drive through newegg. He said its great.
  • Cons: I dont own one yet.

Plastic is OK!

Sue S., Newegg
24 January 2008
  • Summary: Yea it's plastic, but that last one I bought from a local vender was replaced 3 times. It sure did look good though.
  • Pros: Works, and keeps working...
  • Cons: Doesn't come with audio to MoBo cables. I would still only use the mic one anyhow.

Fun fluff, eSATA is nice though...

Michael C., Newegg
18 January 2008
  • Summary: Instructions leave MUCH to be desired, and the Rosewill website did jack to help that
  • Pros: Its kina fun to have it in, looks good, eSATA is really nice and I really like having USB and mic/speaker ports right in the front of my case instead of on the bottom/top/side (its really good for people with cases that sit on the floor/low)
  • Cons: DON'T install BEFORE you hook up the cables, and the fan cables have left me with a little bit of a head-scratcher of a situation cause the instructions are weak so I'm not really using them

great value - works perfectly

Neal V., Newegg
9 January 2008
  • Summary: Make sure you have sufficient hook ups on your MB and correct fan plug style if you want to utilize everything. I was out of SATA plugs on my MB, but not an issue for me. Need USP board ports (x2), 3 pin fans, SATA and audio has male headphone style plugs (needed to exit rear of case and plug into...
  • Pros: Worked first time without s/w or drivers with XP. Lots of hook ups but all connectors included and of sufficient length. PC recognizes all drives seperately. Only used SD card & USB so far and work perfectly & fast. Fan controller is a nice touch, also fully functional. Looks good installed in a ...
  • Cons: Plastic case, especially where mounting screws are concerned (don't over tighten). Metal would have been nice, but for $15 I'm not complaining.

Great value

Jason D., Newegg
6 January 2008
  • Summary: This is the best value card reader with eSATA that I could find, and it came with all of the connectors/cables that I needed. I took away a point for the software, and the goofy audio, but I would buy it again for the eSATA and card reader combo.
  • Pros: eSATA and card readers on one unit.. fan controller I suppose.. usb and audio ports if you don't already have those. Easy install, no drivers needed for XP, pretty good construction, especially for the price. Comes with lots of connectors.
  • Cons: the install cd apparently has some sort of utility that will identify each type of card reader(instead of just removable disk x:), but it wouldn't install properly on my system, and there is no support for this product on Rosewill's site. This doesn't affect operation of the unit at all, but if t...

Good card reader

Anonymous, Newegg
14 December 2007
  • Summary: i already had front audio ports so no big deal to me, also i think you could just take a usb internal cable a use that for the audio
  • Pros: Great Card Reader works with the newer sdhc sd cards. Also the usb the sata and the fan controller all work fine. The fan controller is really a nice thing to have, i like it and it works.
  • Cons: front audio has to go out side of the case to work !!!....
