Voltages ok.

Russell L., Newegg
17 December 2011
  • Summary: The 5 eggs is misleading since all I have used is the USB, which worked fine. I don't feel I can take away any eggs since I haven't witnessed any problems, yet I didn't really want to give it 5 eggs without having used it a bit, but I have installed it in a friend's computer so I won't get that...
  • Pros: -It does look nice and I like the option to go either silver or black. Too bad other companies don't do this so you can really customize your computer.
  • Cons: None yet. I'll revise it that changes.

Nice Card Reader

ANTHONY M., Newegg
12 September 2011
  • Summary: I have used another model Silverstone Card Reader in the past, and have had good luck. I am happy with the purchase of this FP35B and I would buy another one if needed.
  • Pros: Good Fit and Finish on this Card Reader. Everything seems to work fine, (am not using power jacks, but would not be afraid to test and use.). The leads on this were plenty long enough for my Mid Tower Lian Li case.
  • Cons: No real cons to mention from my perspective.

adds convenience

Michael R., Newegg
12 June 2011
  • Pros: The card reader works with Ubuntu Linux. It reads my xD cards. I like the looks of the silver face plate. Makes good use of the 3.5 inch bay that would otherwise be empty.
  • Cons: The fire-wire connector is designed for motherboard headers. Doesn't connect to the the regular fire-wire socket on my add-on fire-wire card.

  • Pros: It does what its supposed to.
  • Cons: None so far.

Silverstone FP35B: a winner!

Gregory C., Newegg
2 November 2010
  • Summary: A good product for the price. Have read that people were having problems using the power receptacles, but have not yet tried it so I cannot comment on that.
  • Pros: Does everything it claims to do. Reads the majority of today's card formats. Replaced old reader for compatibility with SDHC cards. Silver and black bezels are a nice touch. Love the extra USB and Firewire ports on the front, and the access to 5V and 12V power is very convenient.
  • Cons: The cables are fairly long and can be bulky if you have a smallish case. Creates two drive letters in Windows whether you are actively using the card reader or not, but this is probably more a function of removable drive technology instead of the manufacturer's design.

User Review

Bill K., Newegg
11 July 2010
  • Summary: If Sliverstone is reading this, it would be nice to put fuses on the external power, You never know what the user is going to use it for.
  • Pros: It fits and it works. 5v is labeled 5v, 12v is labeled 12v. Intel HDA works, USB works, USB Block mode (card reader) works. Did not test 1394. Running on linux.
  • Cons: None, it just works

Nice unit in a compact package

Anonymous, Newegg
16 June 2010
  • Summary: I needed something to get audio to the front of my case, it didn't have headphone and mic jacks. This filled the bill +. Saw the review that identified a voltage issue, so I buzzed mine out before and after install. Everything good at the faceplate.
  • Pros: Nice package, USB 2.0, Firewire, eSATA and sound in an easy to install module. Everything you need is in the box. Modular connectors for HD and AC97 audio are a nice touch. You don't have to fool around trying to figure out jack-pin to get it to work either way.
  • Cons: Free shipping would have been nice.
