Wonderful item! – 3.5" Internal PCI-E to USB 3.0 Host + All-in-1 Card Reader Combo Reviews

The build quality of this product seems to be better than expected! It's actually well made!
The installation of the item went quite well and installing the drivers from the included dvd went smoothly.
The cables are somewhat of a perfect length. I'm using this in an XPredator full tower case (a really big one) and managed to install it without problems.
The ports really seem to be USB 3.0 seeming it's connected via PCIe and the card reader is USB 2.0, testing some cards gave satisfying results.
The red "power" LED is very bright and stays lit up after the PC is powered off (unless the power supply is deconnected ofcourse). Other than this, there were no problems and I don't expect this to change.
For a lot of people, it would have been even better if it were 5,25'' instead of 3,5'' and don't forget it takes a whole PCI-e slot, even if it's a 16x one!
You can't go wrong with this item (if you have enough room in your pc, that is)
