Great when mounted under a desk – JM-202 Desktop Power Button Switch Module for PC - Black (110cm-Cable) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Great way to operate a computer that's out of reach. In my case it's mounted inside my desk, so this allows me to turn it off and on like a "Release the Hounds" button. Because it plugs right into your motherboard, both of the USB ports can receive full power for devices that both require 5v.
Cons:
None really. USB ports are a little difficult to plug into because of the plastic casing not being entirely lined up. Also the adhesive stickers are useless and it fell off after a day. Had to use an alternative.
Other:
If mounting it under your desk, mount it a little inside, otherwise if you put a USB key in it, and you swing by with your desk chair you might crush the unit.
Bottomline:
Good quality. Have had it for several months with no problems.
