    Does this work with Windows 10?
    New User U on May 24, 2018
    Can this replace a 3.5 floppy drive? What connection on back of unit required? Is it IDE or ????
    CESAR A S on Mar 1, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This will replace a 3.5 floppy drive space. It connects to one of the USB 2.0 connectors on your computer's motherboard. It does not support IDE or SATA.

    Up to 16GB..
    Work ok till 16GB. Can't format my 32GB Class10 SDHC. Had to use my cheap $4 external card reader to format the 32Gb SDHC.

    CONS: It only able to work well up to 16GB SDHC. It cannot format my 32GB Class 10 SDHC. Kept on having error.

    Works Fine
    Works well, inexpensive. Depending on your USB power configuration, the red power indicator light may stay lit even when the computer is shut down.

    Excellent Reader
    Great reader, cannot beat the price. Perfect for your card reader needs

    PROS: Works with Windows 7 drivers (detected automatically)
    Reads all cards I have tried (including SDHC cards)
    Custom faceplates allow you to match your computer case (comes with White, Black and Grey)

    CONS: Red LED on front face of reader always on (could be annoying if you do not have a door that covers front of case
    The SD cards only go in about halfway when reading so if you have a door on your pc it may not close if the card is in (not a major issue)

    The cable is long enough for my tower (Antec P183). The product works great. It does create a bunch of "drives" in Windows, but in Windows 7 you have the ability to mask the empty drives so the letter does not appear. It's a great product. :)

    PROS: Works great.

    CONS: None.

    Poor physical abilities to insert memory cards. Very dificult to use!

    PROS: Cost is as stated

    CONS: Poor phisical interface, inserting memory card is wery dificult.
    I would not use this item again!

    Does a good job and is very resonable priced
    Use it in several Linux Desk top computers and it operates as expected

    Here are MY installation instructions, YMMV:

    Remove side panel from PC
    Remove front panel from PC
    Remove 3.5" bay cover from front panel.
    Remove 3.5" bay cover from chassis.
    Replace front panel.
    Insert your new multi-card reader from the outside, feeding the cable ahead of the unit.
    Watch for alignment of mounting holes as you insert the reader into the chassis.
    Use provided screws to secure the drive to the chassis. The unit should be flush with the front panel of your PC.
    Here's the tricky part... Find an open USB header on your motherboard. (Good luck. All mobos are different.) Plug the unit into the USB header.
    Close the case and start the PC. You should be off and running.

    PROS: Clean looks. Part looks like it came with the PC.
    Multiple face plates to match your case.
    Installs easy (As long as you know what you are doing.)
    Great Price.
    It works great!

    CONS: Installation instructions consist of three blurry photos that are meant to illustrate the process. They don't. You'll be left to your own devices to figure out how to get this thing hooked up. This is the ONLY reason I am not giving this product a 10/10.

    Does a great job at a great price
    This little card reader has lots of things going for it. My favorite part is that it shows up in the OS as a single device, not different devices hanging off of a USB hub for different type cards. This means that the card you insert always shows up at the same drive letter and you don't have to click on a bunch of drives to see which one actually has something in it. This saves time and hassle if you have autoplay turned off (like you should for security). Another cool factor is that the USB cable included with the reader is meant for internal USB headers on the motherboard, not a USB port which forces you to run the cable outside the chassis or plug another cable into the headers. Another feature are the multiple color face plates. Most cases now use the standard black one, but some older cases might be a better match with the silver or beige and it's great to have the choice. Oh, and another factor to consider is that the "action" part of the reader is small and about 60% of the device length is just empty space to fit into a standard 3.5" slot. If you're hacking together a tiny system for an HTPC, you can just snip off the extra sheet metal and not take up valuable space inside the case. Finally, and probably best of all, this reader is available for under $8. At that price it makes sense to get them for every system you've got around to save time.

    PROS: Works fine so far.
    June 14, 2011
    Good price on a nice card reader. Only tested SD & xD cards, but they worked great. It is definitely confusing that the led is always on, but Ive experience no problems and am very happy with it so far.
