    Solid product that is easy to install and does the job, 28 Dec 2011

    This review is from: Akasa Internal SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Card Reader (Accessory)

    The card reader built into my LCD panel doesn’t work with the latest CF cards so as I’d already installed an Akasa USB3 PCI-e card in my PC, I decided to add a USB3 card reader which also has a front USB3 port so my PC now has a single front and 2 rear ISB3 ports.

    This card reader is for use with motherboards that don’t have built-in USB3 headers – if your motherboard and any PIC-e cards include a USB3 socket, then you can plug the two USB3 leads that come from the rear of the card reader into these – my mobo only has built-in USB2 but my Akasa USB3 PCI-e card has a single internal USB3 socket into which I plugged the shorter lead, the other lead I fed out of my case though a rubber grommet and plugged it into one of the three available USB3 ports on the PCI-e card. If you don’t have a hole in the case through which you could pass a USB3 cable, you’ll need to make sure you have a free expansion socket and remove the cover in order to feed through the cable, or drill a suitable hole in your case and fit a grommet.

    So far I’m very happy with this purchase and recommend it to anyone looking to update their pre-USB3 system, but beware the installation gotcha I mentioned if your system doesn’t have two internal USB3 ports.

    ** UPDATE: since using the product in anger, I’ve found that the front USB3 port seems unable to sustain the writing of large numbers of very large files (specifically hi-def video clips of size 600MB – 1.5GB) to a Western Digital My Passport 500GB drive and just ends up hanging when the 6th or 7th file is being copied. The workaround was to use one of my PCs front-panel USB2 ports which was slower but did work, though the USB2 port is wired directly into the motherboard header; the USB3 socket on the card reader is directly connected to one of the sockets of the Akasa USB3 PCI-e expansion card.

    For copying a few large files or smaller files the front USB3 socket works fine and is very fast and the card reader seems to work without any problems.

    Not the best design, 12 Aug 2012

    I’ve had two of these and I won’t be buying another. It failed to read cards without being unplugged and plugged in again, which was inconvenient. Irritatingly, for some reason CF cards need to be inserted upside-down. However, worst of all, both readers sustained a bent pin in the CF card slot after very little use and yes, I did insert the card very carefully (especially with the second card reader). Not a well-designed product and most certainly not recommended.

    Worst card reader I’ve used, 31 July 2012

    This review is from: Akasa Internal SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Card Reader (Accessory)

    I purchased one of these last year for my new AMD AM3+ build. I had an early one that has a non internal connection which required you to put the cable around the back through a spare slot to go into the motherboards rear USB ports. Not ideal but not the end of the world either.

    With the reader connected properly I had system hangs and many times where the reader would simply not spring into life or read a card. All the connections where checked the USB 3 ports worked just fine, unpluging the reader and the PC would boot up just fine. When it did work I tried the card reader and frankly it was dog slow to the point where any working USB 2.0 card reader would thump the life out of it speed wise.

    This ended up in the bin, I just kept the cable to that I can use it for an extender if needed. Not sure if the updated model has internal header connections, I would advise checking that first. As it is right now I would use the words don’t touch, and barge pole. Not sure what is wrong with Akasa I used a few before on USB 2 granted they were not great..but worked. Nothing super speed about this sadly.
