The front panel USB3 port has come in handy and works just as well with USB2 devices such as flash drives.

Definitely leaps and bounds better than the one it replaced, and worth the upgrade!

USB 3.0 is here, but why is it that the ports are always on the back of the computer?

After buying a USB 3.0 stick, I decided I didn't want to reach around the back. I also was tired of the extra cable lying around my desk for my existing card reader, and the card reader was S-L-O-W at taking data off my 300x CompactFlash card.

I searched around and read the reviews for this, and it was perfect for my needs: USB 3.0 port in the front, and a variety of card slots that would move to my computer panel and leverage the faster bus speed. Wow what a difference! My jump drive went from a max 68MB/s up on the rear slot to 75MB/s up. Down is 120MB/s -- this is the same speed as my SATA II SSD that I hook up to an eSATA port!

What really counted was the VAST improvement in my Lexar CF card. The card went from a pokey 5MB/s off the card reader to a whopping 60MB/s on this unit. I didn't even know the card could go that fast. I take a lot of 14MP images and pulling these off the card is now FAST.

Even nicer is that each data device you plug in gets recognized as a unique drive whereas some card readers only allocate you one active drive letter for only one device no matter how many are plugged in.

I'm very satisfied. My desk is less cluttered and my data transfers faster.

Final (I hope) update:

Well, it turns out that placing somewhere around 1000uF of capacitance on the +5V line to the interface chip helps this to be recognized on bootup. Since the surgery described below, it has not failed to enumerate a single time, and the toggle switch for the power has turned out to be unnecessary. If I had this to do over again, I'd probably get a 2200uF/6.3V solid polymer cap from a place like Mouser or DigiKey and just add it to the +5V line (and ground) without doing any other alterations. From the looks of things, that ought to be plenty of capacitance to get this to work with 100% reliability. And for that matter, the extra capacitance may actually improve performance with marginal cards.

Update May 2013

I got so frustrated with this POS that I took it apart and did some corrective surgery. I cut the +5V trace from the USB connector end to the chip and added a front panel mounted toggle switch to control the power to the chip. (I also put bypass caps on the board on both sides of the cut trace) Now, when the computer boots and this POS isn't recognized (as it isn't at least 90% of the time), a quick on-off-on of the new switch cycles power to the chip and the removable drives are instantly recognized. This isn't a solution for everyone, but it does work.

In my opinion, you'd be FAR better off buying the SanDisk USB3 card reader, as long as you don't mind having another gadget sitting around on the desk. As far as internal readers go, please please do yourself a favor and buy one from someone competent.

Update January 2013:

After dealing with this thing for over six months, I'm about ready to throw in the towel.

Doing a new system build and want USB3.0 internal card reader for photo downloads. Very few internal USB3.0 5.25 readers available on the market at this time. This takes both inernal USB3.0 ports on motherboard for the card reader and USB 3.0 port on the unit. It was a clean installation, with no problems and seems to work great so far. Blue LED on front indicates when reader is working/reading. Works as expected.

After the Rosewill USB 3.0 Multi Card Reader broke off one of the tiny pins in the USB 3.0 socket of my ASUS motherboard, I found the extra-long cables on the AFT PRO-57U would allow me to use the two exterior USB 3.0 sockets instead. It has read every type of card accurately at USB 3.0 speeds. It has saved me having to buy a new motherboard. I wish I had purchased this first instead of the Rosewill product. I purchased both from Amazon.

This card reader has a weird way of extending it's reach using a pair of usb m-f cables from device to a connector that (should) plug into your USB 3.0 connector on motherboard. Well guess what due to it's different way of extending it's reach the motherboard headercable connector has a nice bulge just above where it plugs in. With the ASUS P8Z77-V Premium and probably all the others of this type from ASUS this connector sits right next to the DIMM slots. Guess what fail design!
Now this more costly reader is plugged into USB 2.0 that could of been puchased a lot cheaper!

So beware if the USB 3.0 connector has anything just aft of the notched USB 3.0 header connector then you are probably wasting your time even thinking about this card in a USB 3.0 configuration.

The problem is: a two port USB housing sits on top of the 20-pin adapter, and the USB housing is so wide and bulky that it will not fit into the USB 3 (sits beside my memory card slots) of MY mother board. If your mother board allows for more space this shouldn't be a problem for you, but I'm having to return mine.
