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.
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.
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.
Pros: External Power source for External HD is great. Card Readers work great Have bought 7 of them for builds and personally and everyone of them have worked without a hitch for more than a year. I use them with Rosewill SATA 2 3G 2 Port RAID PCIE Adaptor RC-211 for hot swapping external SATA II HARD ...
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.
