Just to add to my previous review. Re. that USB 3.0 lead: the instructions show both the lead *and* the USB 3 motherboard connector plugged in. The lead is shown connected to a USB 3 port on the back of your PC. However, the USB 3 ports and the card reader both seem to work fine whether or not you plug the USB lead in. It is unclear to me why you need the USB 3 lead plugged in, as it seems to work fine without. Even so, if you've got a spare USB 3 port on the back of your machine you might as well plug it in - certainly won't do any harm. Perhaps Dabs might clarify this for us.

Not the cheapest, but it uses USB 3.0 for the card readers, so cards are read at maximum speed. This differentiates it from cheaper products.

Construction and finish is excellent - would suit a top-of-the-range PC. Also, Akasa is a good name, so you should expect excellent reliability and performance compared with some of the cheaper "no-name" alternatives.

Although not mentioned on the Specification page, it also has a standard power connector (actually a male and female molex pair). This allows the USB 2.0 ports to work as a powered hub so you can charge peripherals from them.

It's easy to fit. Just plug the USB 2.0, USB 3.0, and SATA connectors to your motherboard, connect the power lead, and you are away. Windows 8 installed the drivers automatically.

It also has a USB 3 lead with Type A connector. My best guess is that you can plug it into a USB 3 port on the back of your machine if you don't have a spare USB 3 connector on your motherboard.

Highly recommended.
