Good thing – 3.5" Internal PCI-E to USB 3.0 Host + All-in-1 Card Reader Combo Reviews

Pros:
Four USB 3.0 ports on the front panel. That is very very cool. Card-Reader works out of the box. USB 3.0 Driver was installed without any problems (Win 7 x64).
Cons:
1. New version with backplate had a problem described in here: http://club.dealextreme.com/forums/Forums.dx/threadid.1127088 . That is -1 to build quality. 2. Too bright red LED indicator (see the pictures). You can use the black marker to darken it. But actually I can't think of a reason it should be there in the first place. Floppies and DVD-s were fine without it.
Other:
Bottomline:
Worth buying. I hope in the future the price for USB3.0 devices will lower. But even now it is a good thing if you use Flash drives for movies or portable software.
