    All right

    Long cord and really well built. This is perfect for a motherboard change out in an existing case without USB 3.0 front ports, this way I still get to use the old 2.0 ports too. You can't have too many front USB ports. If they are there you ... Read more

    5 out of 5 eggs Works!

    Pros: I now have replaced my ancient USB 2.0 and some type of giant memory card (PCMCIA?) slot in the front of my case with two USB 3.0 ports.

    It doesn't have any gaudy logos like the items I was comparing it with.

    I'm happy with it.

    Cons: None really. It works as intended.

    Bottom Line: It's plastic on the front, but feels well constructed.

    4 out of 5 eggs Upgrade was worth it!

    Pros: Added a 3.0 Port to the front of the Lian Li case. USB 3.0 is really quick with thumb drives. Solid construction.

    Cons: None to mention when considering other choices.

    5 out of 5 eggs USB Front Panel

    Pros: Fits easily into 3.5 inch drive bay. Included screws made it easy since I did not have to dig through my drawer of computer screws for the right size. Used one of these in a 2 year old case, and another in a 20 year old case. No problems installing in either case design.

    Cons: Since I have mid-tower cases, I could have used about another inch of wire to reach the MB headers. I had to bend the back of the unit so I could move the wires to one side to reach the headers. Newer and smaller cases would be no problem.

    Bottom Line: Going to buy a couple more of these plus some conversion cables to use USB2 headers on the MB and convert to a plug that these USB3 units can connect to. Those MBs are still good and I just can't find one of these USB front panel that are USB2.

    2 out of 5 eggs Not powerful enough to power ext drive

    Pros: 2 external ports to front of pc

    Cons: This does not provide power enough for my external usb drives. Both say that they need more power to use them.. so this was a waste of money since I only bought it to enable me to plug in my external backup drives into the front panel.

    1 out of 5 eggs Steer Clear

    Pros: Not pro at all

    Cons: In the 4 of the 5 systems I built for resale, this component locked up those systems anytime a USB peripheral was attached.

    5 out of 5 eggs Nice Job Vantec

    Pros: Nice unit, looks good in my case and works with every flash drive and USB device I have plugged into it. It has a firm and solid feel to it when plugging/unplugging unlike some of the lesser expensive 2.0 units I have bought before. Speeds are better and it responds quickly as I barely plug a device in and its mounted and opened on my desktop ready to go. Recommended.

    Cons: Be nice to have more than 2 ports but with the cases stock USB 2.0 ones already there its ok.

    Bottom Line: I run linux Mint 17.1 and it works great. This is the second time I bought and installed this model on a system so there you go. It would be great to put in more than one but that gets expensive.

    5 out of 5 eggs Nice USB 3.0 front panel for older cases

    Pros: - Gives you a USB 3.0 option for older cases.
    - Plugs right into USB 3.0 connector on the motherboard.
    - Fit right in my case's 3.5" floppy drive bay.
    - It's black like my case!

    Cons: None so far!

    Bottom Line: This is a great option for folks who have older cases. I have a Cooler Master HAF 932 that I still like (mine is the pre-Advanced version). But I wanted some USB 3.0 ports for the front of my case as my new motherboard allowed for the option. So far, this one works great! Good speeds and plugged right in with no extra adapter needed. Fits in right where I used to have an old 3.5" floppy drive.
