Meh...

  • Summary: There are other alternatives out there, none at this price point however. I guess the saying holds true, you get what you pay for. The audio jacks on this are not meant for plugging your headset in and out at will and definitely won't last.
  • Pros: Cheap alternative to failed ports or for older cases which don't have front jacks.
  • Cons: Lousy construction. Not meant to last nor for a gamer. I bought this to replace a failed audio connector on my case. After a few months, the audio jacks loose connection. Either the mic on my headset goes out and nobody can hear me on voice communication software, or I can only hear out of one side (Left or Right) of my headphones (ANNOYING)!

Solid, Simple, Good

  • Summary: If you can install a hard drive, you can install this. It does require that you be able to find and identify the headers on your motherboard for usb, firewire, and audio. As of 12/09 the box is one piece of aluminum, very solid, no plastic. Cables and connectors are molded together with no 'electronics' exposed. Audio connector has jumpers routing mic in and audio out to both the front panel and rear motherboard jacks, so you have a choice of headset and/or speakers.
  • Pros: Long cables, solid one-piece box, connectors solidly mounted, use front and read audio simultaneously. Piece of cake to install with sufficient knowledge.
  • Cons: Requires some technical knowledge to install. Might be stronger if it was made of cast iron (maybe not).

Love it, Love the company!

  • Summary: Silverstone is great! The first one of these I got had USB ports that for whatever reason would cut in and out. I called them, and a very knowledgeable tech worked with me to make sure it was indeed the item and not something else (i.e., disconnecting and reconnecting the USB plugs to the headers on the motherboard). Once satisfied, he simply shipped me a set of ports -- I never had to return the bad one.
  • Pros: 4 USB 2.0 ports, a Firewire port, and audio and mic jacks all on the front of the computer. It is relatively easy to install. It is sturdy, with a front and tray of aluminum and the ports mounted (behind the aluminum front) in a stocky plastic holder. This is attached by two screws to the aluminum tray. Nice setup, attaches easily, clean look, convenient. The ports (especially the audio ports) take a little oomph to plug into, but I'd rather that than a loose connecti...
  • Cons: None. I love this thing. Six months now, and no problems at all once I got a replacement for defective ports.

Great product

Kevin B., Newegg

  • Summary: Don't bother looking at any other taiwanese junk. This is the thing to buy.
  • Pros: Nice design. Quick install. Good build quality.
  • Cons: None really except the included screws are a little small so on some drive cages it might not catch the mounting groove. Use some regular floppy drive screws with the washer head and you're golden.

POORLY SHIELDED AUDIO

Wesley W., Newegg
21 April 2009
  • Summary: It still get's a 4.
  • Pros: Installation was straightforward, no hiccups. Now I have easily accessible audio and USB ports!
  • Cons: DON'T USE USB AND HEADPHONES! With headphones plugged in I can hear a very loud clicking interference noise. It goes away when I unplug my USB cables from this device. Luckily I have other USB ports on the front of my computer. They should have shielded the audio. I don't notice the interference with my powered speakers, but it's painful with headphones.

It Works

  • Summary: Works good for what I needed, my case had no audio ports up front and the USB ports are hard to get to because of the design of my case, this is a good solution.
  • Pros: Fits in the 3.5" bay, easy to install and no drivers required. The black finish looks good in my case.
  • Cons: Individual cables for each of the four USB ports, it could have been designed better.

No issues

Alonzo V., Newegg

  • Summary: Wish it was white instead of silver but functional is better than aesthetic anyday of the week.
  • Pros: Easy of installation, plenty of connections works as expected. Snug fit in the floppy drive bay. Sturdy for it's size, doesn't feel cheap or flimsy.
  • Cons: none
