More attractive than a maksehift solution. – 3.5" Front Chassis Bay Embedded SDHC MS/SD/MMC/TF/M2 Card Reader with USB Port Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
I have a cheap PC case with the USB ports on the side, which makes connecting and removing a USB drive awkward. I fit these ports to the front of the case but it looked ugly and because I filed down the soldering the performance was temperamental.
This card reader is a much neater solution and the USB port does perform at USB 2.0 speeds.
Item actually works, which can be a concern in this price range.
Cons:
Red LEDs may clash with the other LEDs on your PC.
A removable drive permanently appears in My Computer (for Windows users). This can be hidden, DX may not like me posting a web address so do a search on hiding a drive letter. You will have to type the drive letter in the address bar to access any cards though.
Other:
I changed the drive letter to B so it was out of the way.
Bottomline:
The price makes up for any shortcomings.
