Pros: Nice a jam packed with features. Getting harder to find a 5.25" bay card reader these days so I was hoping this would be a great deal.
Cons: Incompatible with Windows 8 (RTM). The driver installer crashes and there are no default drivers. It is very difficult to insert a SD card into the slot. You have to work to find the perfect angle to make it go in.

Cons: Defective on arrival
Other Thoughts: Two weeks ago I purchased the AFT PRO-55U memory card reader, but it is limited to USB 2 speeds. So I then purchased this Koutech IO-FPM530 reader since it is USB 3. I connected it to my PC's USB 3 port and tested it with my Class 10 SD card. The read/write speed was slightly higher by 2-4MB/sec, but I noticed the green LED light was not working. I then tried this with a microSDHC memory card, and it would not read it at all. I contacted NewEgg about RMA Refund, and am waiting to hear back. I'm going to keep my first purchase of the AFT PRO-55U memory card reader since it is made better, even though it is USB 2 and slightly slower...but I think it is better quality and will last longer.

Pros: Very fast with CF cards. [For photos] Pretty much instant data transfer. Looks very nice in my Corsair 650D case. Screw holes allow a solid mounting in tool-less bays.
Cons: A metal case around the unit wold make it a bit easier to mount.
Other Thoughts: I would like to see some backlighting on the face of this unit to make it easier to find it in the dark.
