I like the looks of this item. The mesh front fits my case design quite well. Installation was a snap.

My only complaint would be how one of the USB ports isn't straight inside the unit. Like, the one is slightly off kilter. Instead of being horizontal, one of the two USB ports is off by a few degrees. It doesn't sound like much, but it's very noticeable when the port right next to it is perfectly horizontal. And it absolutely will not budge to straighten it out. (It's really hard to describe in text.)

That simple cosmetic flaw is what cost it a 5 star rating. If it was $24.99 then I wouldn't care so much. But something of this nature that is pushing $50 shouldn't have any annoying little defect in appearance that jumps out at whoever looks at my PC. (I paid almost $50 when I bought it elsewhere almost a year ago. I see it's dropped in price since.)

And as for people complaining about the lack of drivers. Well, you would think that DIY'ers (you know, the same people who would actually order this) would know that it's simply an extension of the USB headers on the mainboard. That's all it is. There is one cable that runs from inside this unit and it plugs in to your mainboard. So, obviously there are NO drivers for THIS unit, per se. The drivers you need are your MAINBOARD USB header drivers. Your OS should already have them loaded anyways, but if not, then look up your mainboard manufacturers website and get the drivers.

And as to why someone said it IS NOT USB 3.0. Again, that is a limitation of your MAINBOARD. This unit does not magically turn everything into USB 3.0. You need a mainboard (or an add-on card) that supports USB 3.0 first, then you add this unit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice reader Oct. 9 2013
Verified Purchase
I use this reader every day since I'm an amateur photographer.
I've got a brand new i5 computer so I was happy that it was black
same as the PC

I would recommend this reader to everyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars SD card reader stopped working Feb. 4 2013
Verified Purchase
The design is nice, but the unit is a bit too small in the front therefore you can see a gap between the desktop house and the unit, which is lame. Also the SD card reader stopped working suddenly. I am not sure if the connection to the motherboard got loose or if it is Windows issue or if the unit just sucks itself. There is no driver for it on the site and the instruction/manual is bleak. Waste of money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Annoyed by the support May 20 2013
By Jules
I am running Win 7, with a loaded system. This is the weakest link in my chain. My USB ports don't work and there are no drivers on the web site... Are they stupid? I think I am the dummy for buying the product without reading the reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Aug. 7 2012
By Deadtroll - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
1. This thing looks good. Not just the outer mesh face, but the black pcb on the
inside, and the two cords are all black and sleeved.
2. Did I mention that it has only two cords, and the cords are long enough to
accommodate Full tower cases.
3. It offers USB 3.0. This is perfect for people with Newer Motherboards, with USB
3.0 headers, but Older cases without USB 3.0 connections like my Phantom NZXT.
4. It is compatible with the newest SDXC cards, and is functional right out of the
box.
I highly recommend this card reader if your Motherboard has a USB 3.0 header. If your Motherboard does not have this header I would look elsewhere unless you are ok with two non functioning USB 3.0 connections on the front of your case. The device has to connections. a usb header for the card reader, and a usb 3.0 header for the two usb 3.0 connections.

3.0 out of 5 stars Card reader is USB 2.0 Nov. 8 2012
By Joseph J Kracum - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Purchased & returned without installing. From description, it appeared that USB 3.0 was used for card reader as well as ports. Upon openning box, instructions indicated USB 3.0 is for the two ports and USB 2.0 is used for card reader. It would have looked real nice in my HAF XM

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible CF design and zero QC - Photogs steer clear! Feb. 26 2013
By Jonathan P. Volk - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Both amateur & pro photographers who need a solid CF slot to download pictures need to avoid this product like the plague for one simple reason: they put the pins far too close to the front of the slot. As a result, the miniature rails along the side that normally guide the card smoothly into place become functionally useless, thereby making a bent pin(s) nearly impossible to avoid.

As far as their quality control goes, the USB ports were bent inward enough to make me wonder, if only for a moment, whether or not they were intentionally made to look like eyes. Shoddy indeed!

I will upload pictures shortly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beauty is only skin deep with this careless company March 31 2013
By Frank G. Kearney - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I like very much how this product looks, but it has a serious flaw with its card reader. The reader for the CF cards, is poorly designed, and the tracking rails that would guide the card onto the pins are too short. This makes it very easy to get the card off track, thus bending a pin or two. This happened a number of times, and I had to get a flashlight and use a ball point pen to straighten a pin. One time, however, it missed the track altogether, I believe, and as I twisted it to try and straighten, the whole section of the card reader containing the pins, came apart. Toast.
Now the most frustrating part. I went to the NZXT website to file a warranty claim, and I was told there would be a 24 hour turnaround. TWENTY TWO DAYS, not hours, later, I get a note telling me the problem was my fault, and there would be no warranty -

"I apologize for the delay in response. It seems that the force you used to insert the CF card had dislodged the internal pin structure by accident. While we hope that the card reader would still be working for you, accidents and damages are not covered under warranty and as such, we are powerless to help."

You can make your own decision on this, but it is not inexpensive, and the manufacturer has NO customer service, and will not stand behind their poorly designed product. You will also most likely have a failure at the CF card port unless you are very, very careful - and when it fails, the other readers won't work. But it does look good, and it occupies a hole in the faceplate, until I can replace it with a quality product. Caveat emptor!

1.0 out of 5 stars Paperweight March 1 2013
By Robert - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
It worked as described. Make sure you understand that you need both a USB 2.0 header and a USB 3.0 header on your system board. The 3.0 header powers the USB 3 ports and the USB 2 header powers the memory card reader. Worked just long enough for the return period to expire. Then the memory card reader failed. Started by not reading inserted cards and then progressed to not detecting at all. Stick with a external memory card reader and a rear back plate with USB 3 ports. If you have USB 3 you have probably already realized that there are not many devices that use USB 3 and most likely you have front panel ports USB 3 ports that came with you pc in the first place.
