1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work - for now

Pros: I got what I ordered.
Comes with different color face plates to match your case.

Cons: I got what I ordered - a card reader that does not work with Windows 10 - even though everyone stated it does.
Picture that Newegg shows is also wrong - that is not what the device looks like, just FYI...

Other Thoughts: I've tried what some other reviewer tried when his device quit working - uninstall drivers, reboot, etc... doesn't work. In fact, after install, I have not been able to get this thing to work at all - it will not recognize any card inserted - and yes I'm on Windows 10 unfortunately...

I've contacted tech support at Bytecc, so will see what their response is, assuming I get one..

So in summary - first lesson learned - do NOT install Windows 10 if you ever plan on using SD cards....second lesson, do not buy this card reader if you did not learn from first lesson! It does not work as others have stated...

2 out of 5 eggsWorks for a short time...UPDATE it works again.

Pros: When it worked it worked well. When I installed this Windows installed drivers for it, as it should. Here is what fixed mine once it stopped working, you might want to try this. See Other,

Cons: Constant power, even when computer is off.

Other Thoughts: This one has the best reviews, but externals might be just as good.

Update for worked, then not working and wont boot if a card is in it on start up.

Went to Device Manager.
Under Disk Drives uninstalled all 4 generic card readers (by clicking on the drive and choosing uninstall).

Specific instruction to uninstall are:

Highlight each drive specifically, then use the right mouse button to bring up the option to Update Driver, Disable, Uninstall, Scan for Hardware Changes, or Properties...chose Uninstall (repeat for all 4 drivers) and then restart the computer

Once you have restarted, the devices automatically reinstall and it works.

It seems there may be an issue with Windows 7 64bit drivers and this device. I am running Windows 7 64 bit enterprise to be more specific.

1 out of 5 eggsBroke in less than 60 days

Pros: Was great for a little while

Cons: Worthless. Less than 60 days and now it won't read any of my memory cards.

Other Thoughts: Buyer beware: They ask for a $10 check to process your RMA. Bytecc=Junk.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes its job well

Pros: - Separate microSD/T-Flash slot
- Reads nearly every card available
- Front USB port

Cons: - USB 2.0 only
- Red light on panel stays on when computer is off

Other Thoughts: This is a decent quality, USB 2.0 card reader, and the price is outstanding. The fact that it's USB 2.0 could be considered either a pro or a con, depending on what headers are available on the motherboard. The 3.5" form factor is another feature that could be either a pro or a con, depending on what the case supports.

Overall this is a solid, reliable device that I would recommend to others.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great! Easy Install!

Pros: Does what it is supposed to do.

Cons: Wasn't free. Won't provide winning lottery numbers in advance.

Other Thoughts: Face plate arrangement has changed a bit since photo on web page taken. Still has everything listed. All I wanted was SD, Micro SD, and Compact Flash. Yes, I still use Compact Flash!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks As Intended

Pros: Looks pretty well put together. Fits nicely where it's supposed to go. All the holes on the front line up with the slots.

Cons: None, really. It works.

Other Thoughts: I wish the LED lights on the front were blue instead of red. The red really throws off my whole "Blue LEDs only" policy. oh well.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for what it is.

Pros: Single USB connector.
Faceplates to match case.
Supports many cards.
Plug and play.

Cons: Only one USB 2.0 port.

Other Thoughts: I have 4 USB 3.0 ports on my Lian Li PCD600 Case. I only wanted for the extra USB 2.0 and SD card slot and this fills up my last empty 5.25 drive bay in my massive case. The red LED's didn't match. Their tiny LEDs, and can't really be removed. They can be easily destroyed with a soldering iron tho. Once they're destroyed you can easily solder standard LEDs of which ever color you prefer. I omitted the status light and opted to install a single blue LED which stays on when a card is plugged in, but interesting, wont turn on with only a USB device.

I wish the cord was a little bit longer, It's just long enough for me to connect.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: It does what it's meant to, but...(see cons)

Cons: The slots themselves aren't super well manufactures. For instance, getting a CF card inserted is the most annoying thing...it doesn't have a good insertion system for CF, so it's a pain to bother with it sometimes. Haven't had that problem with SD cards though.

Also, why the clear/silver USB extension? Why can't it be black like everything else? Dumb choice.

5 out of 5 eggsPlug and play! No extra drives!

Pros: Some others reported that this will show something like 5 unused drives even when nothing is plugged into the device. This is not my experience. Once the drivers automatically downloaded and installed with Windows update, all the extra drives disappeared.

A drive will only appear if something is inserted.

Cons: Not much.

Other Thoughts: Used on Windows 7
