Customer Reviews

This could have been designed better The front plastic face-plate feels a little loose. It is held on by only two plastic clips, one on each side of the face-plate. Maybe could have had a clips on the top and bottom of the plate to make it feel less flimsy.When you insert a card is the SD or CF slot the card stick out way too far. Depending on the location of your rig, if you bump the card you risk damaging the reader or worse, the card itself. For example, a CF card only inserts about half an inch (~12 mm) this leaves about an inch (~25 mm) of the card hanging out in the air.This could have been designed better.To top it all off, this is DOA. The USB controller chip will not start. 1CFC >to> IDE adapter = removable storage for older non-USB computers! :)No USB support on my old IBM PS/1 Consultant, 486-66 MHz computer. My search for removable data storage found this! NOTE - This review is for the StarTech 3.5" drive bay Compact Flash card - CFC >to> IDE adapter - 35BAYCF2IDE.The pros:+ Free shipping.+ Easy "plug & play" installation, no drivers are required.+ CFC activity pass thru - meaning the controller card LED will display the CFC activity.+ Comes with a power supply splitter cable.+ Comes with an optional rear case (full size) mounting option.+ Advertised - Installation into any IDE 40 pin or 44 pin ribbon female cable.+ Advertised - Easily swap cards in and out with built-in push button ejector.+ Advertised - Fully compatible with Compact Flash Type I/II and IBM Micro-drive+ Advertised - Allows Compact flash card to be used as bootable storage.+ Advertised - Easy to use jumpers offer simple master/slave drive setting.+ Advertised - Can be mounted in the front or rear panel of your case, to fit into any 3.5" bay or available expansion slot.The cons:- $21.79 when I bought one of these, which I thought was on the expensive side.- No mounting hardware is provided.- No IDE ribbon cable is provided.- No LED's on the circuit board or on the front of the adapter.- The print on the instruction booklet is very small.- Advertised - Easily swap cards in and out with built-in push button ejector. NOT hot pluggable! The computer has to be powered off to insert or remove the Compact Flash card.CFC - CompactFlash card information: CompactFlash cards come configured to two different modes:[1] "Removable Disk Mode"[2] "Fix Disk Mode" Normally Commercial CF cards are set to "Removable Disk Mode" & Industrial CF cards are set to "Fix Disk Mode". This varies between manufactures, so it best to verify the mode of the CF card you purchase. CF card with "Fix Disk Mode" is used as a permanent data storage device. Use this card for creating fixed partitions, installing operating systems, or creating a bootable drive. Windows operating system will not place system files on a removable disk, so it's important to use only CF cards which are set to "Fix Disk Mode".Closing remarks: Overall, I'm happy with this CFC >to> IDE adapter. I read where other reviewers had problems with the ejector button. So far the ejector button has worked perfectly for me.4FAIL - Pass on it - Do not Buy - Bad Soldering - Short Cord - Fragile Jack - QA FailFirstly, the internal USB3 cord is short, even for a rackmount case, may not reach taller desktop case places.Electrically, the unit worked well before it failed. The front-mounted USB 3.0 has two through-hole pins in back to fix it to the board, and the rest of the jack is only surface mount, so if moderate pressure is put on the cable the front of the jack will tear from the circuit board. The jack/fit in the connector never felt like a solid.At first I thought it was all mechanical poor design, but when I took the unit apart, I found that the soldering was poor, and the flux had not been removed. This is why the unit failed.This unit was never subjected to moisture.I will be redoing my youtube video review.1Very Poorly Made - 3 Slots Failed Within 2yrsI got this reader to read the several different memory card types that I use in my different cameras. I wanted to clean up my office a bit and not have USB media hubs plugged into the front of my workstation.THE BAD1) From day one the front USB slots did not work, this was no big deal though because the workstation had front USB slots built in. '2) After about a year the XD card reader just completely quit one day. This was also not that big of a deal because most XD cards come with an adapter to make them fit in an SDHC slot so I started using the adapter for that media.3) The last straw was that about two years later the SDHC card slot stopped working. This is the main type of media that I use in my cameras so this meant that this media reader was now a completely useless workstation accessory. At first I kept getting a copy file error when copying the contents of a SDHC card, then eventually it just wouldn't read the cards. I am now back to a USB media reader plugged into the front. The only thing that still works is the CF reader which I rarely ever use.4) Another problem with this reader is that the CF card slot is very shallow, this means you have to be careful when inserting your CF card or you can easily get a bent pin.CONCLUSIONUnfortunately there are not many 3.5" floppy bay media readers out there, but I'm sure there has to be something better than this. Also this is a USB 2.0 reader so even if it hadn't broken in so many ways it would still be outdated by modern standards. I recommend avoiding this reader at all costs and making sure that you buy a USB 3.0 reader if your workstation has internal USB 3.0 slots; it will greatly improve your file copy speeds.I think this reader would probably have lasted longer with light use, but after a photo shoot I need to copy hundreds of files amounting to gigs of data and the file copy process needs to be reliable and consistent. Nothing like starting a 10GB file copy from a media card only to come and and find that the reader had an interruption early in the process.1Reads slower than USB 1 on a USB3 card.2/21/18 UpdateI was too busy with work to do the troubleshooting to find out why the cards were read so slowly through this (second) reader. Because I'd installed a USB 3 PCI-e card at the same time, I didn't know if it was the USB 3 card or this reader that was the bottleneck.Finally, now 2 weeks past my 'return window' I have discovered that its the reader itself. I used an older Kingston FCR-HS219/1 multi-card reader which is USB 2, and connected it to the back of my USB 3 card, inserted a CF card and BANG!!!! The card was recognized immediately and the RAW picture files appeared in my browser immediately.I then plugged the CF card into this reader (by the way the reader's bottom row has its pins UPSIDE DOWN) and one minute later the CF card still hadn't even appeared in the Auto Play dialogue pop-up nor was it showing in the Windows Explorer folder. What a piece of junk.The first one had to be replaced because the CF pins were messed up, and the second one is useless. When you finally get the card to appear in the Win Explorer the OS has to perform a snail's pace search to index the card, which takes several minutes more. There is just no excuse for this.Fair warning.****End Update #2******l Multi-Card Reader installed easily enough into my 3.5" floppy bay.Tried out the SD card slot and that was fine, card seated and ejected as it should.Then tried the CF card using several Lexar Professional CF cards from my Nikon DSLR and ... nope. The pins on the left end of the card would seat but for some reason, I could not get any of the right-side pins to properly seat. I didn't want to force the thing in fear of harming the cards so I'm sending this one back for a replacement.EDIT UPDATE #1:OK, the replacement got here quickly and the second reader was the same as the first with the CF card only going in on the left side. Just for a lark I thought, "well, lets try it upside down", and it seated.Looking at the Memory Stick slot, it is also UPSIDE DOWN.There is nothing in the instructions about this, and IMO there sure should be, if nothing more than a photo. So with the unit mounted in the 3.5 bay and connected to my internal 19 pin 3.0 bus, we have a green LED for power, and when it reads cards, the red LED lights as expected. USB reads, CF reads, SD reads, so I'm assuming so do the other formats.Could be that my Win 7 machine is not yet used to the card reader but it seems like the newly inserted cards are being discovered in Win Explorer very s-l-o-w-l-y. We'll see.NOW I see a previous review that discusses a misaligned PC board which looks to be also true in the unit I'm sending back (the lower row of card slots looks to be mounted too high) ...but that is probably not the problem with this one because the left side of the CF pins engages the cards; the right for some reason will not align.If the replacement works as intended I will get back here and adjust this review. (SEE ABOVE PLEASE)BTW as always Amazon returns are quick and easy, one of the best features of the Amazon experience in my view.1Easy install if you have a spare USB3.1 socket on your motherboard.This was a fairly easy install on my tower computer. The provided cable was just long enough to reach from the front panel to the USB3.1 socket on my motherboard. Setup was very easy.One item that did concern me was that the device has holes in its enclosure that can allow air flow from outside the case and into the case. I was concerned that such air flow would cause dust build-up in the memory card slots, so I took the extra step to block the holes on the metal enclosure that goes inside of the computer case with black electrical tape. But now that I think about it, if you have the fans set up to provided positive pressure inside of the case using filtered air, then this dust build-up shouldn't be a problem. Oh well.5a well-functioning, well-made multi-card readerMy refurbished HP desktop computer came without a multi-card reader, so I installed this in one of the empty front panel slots. It's been working perfectly and I fully recommend it.This is a 3.5-inch size, rather than a 5.25-inch size, so I purchased an adapter bracket -- more about that later. For reasons I'll explain, that turned out to be the right decision.This StarTech reader has only a single attachment cable -- a 20- (or 19-?) pin female connector, which enables all the front ports including the USB 3.0. IMPORTANT: Your CPU must have an interior 20-pin male connector with USB 3.0 capabilities. Mine didn't, so I purchased a StarTech expansion card -- PCIe x8, model #PEXUSB312EIC -- which has worked perfectly.My first purchase for this need was a Docooler 5.25" card reader. It was inferior for a handful of reasons:1. It required 3 separate attachments to the motherboard (more cable clutter and more risk that you would need to purchase yet another expansion card). It did have the 19-pin cable for USB 3.0, so I was in the same situation as with the StarTech in that regard as to purchasing the expansion card.2. It had all the circuit boards exposed -- rather than the enclosed casing of the StarTech -- and looked as though the construction was flimsy.3. Most significant of all -- the Docooler was only half-depth, so it was impossible to screw it in as firmly as a full-depth component. That matters, since you'll be pushing and pulling cards in and out of the slots constantly.So I opted instead for a full-depth 5.25-inch bracket adapter, the StarTech #BRACKETFDBK. I was able to firmly screw the StarTech card reader into this bracket, then very firmly screw the adapter into the CPU bay. Whereas I had some slight movement with the half-depth unit (which I have returned), I have had zero movement with the full-depth installation.So far I'm having no problems whatsoever. Hopefully this helps other buyers with similar needs!5SD Cards dont slide smoothly, hard to eject.I'm reviewing the 3.5" bay, USB3 mobo header version (blue plug/cable). (Dec 29, 2019)Install went easily enough (thought the StarTech 5.25-3.5 bay adapter was a bust as its extra wide head screws would not work in my case; that review under that product, but just as a warning for those buying the 3.5/5.25 adapter with this).But its face plate seems slightly too low on the underlying circuit board - as when inserting the SD card I can feel friction. The click engage works, but to eject, I press it in, but the small spring force of the internal card mechanism cannot overcome the friction of the face plate on the card in the slot. The microsd also drags, so getting it out is also way harder than it should be. This unit is going back - one more try (will update this review once the replacement arrives. update Replacement card reader had the same issue. s near as I can tell it isn t the front bezel / face but the SD card slot mechanism itself that doesn t cleanly let the card pass on and out. Something is out of spec with the SD card slot component of the reader as it drags on all of my SD cards from several makes that are all major brand names.2VS-840EX Zip Drive replacementWorked great for this application. Only needed to add a longer IDE cable and find a compatible 2GB CF cards (Kingston worked for me). The power supply cord that was supplied with Startech adapter worked fine for getting power from the VS-840EX to the CF adapter. Mechanically mounting the drive required a thin wooden shim to hold the board in place but it has held up fine. (These cards don't require a lot of force to install or eject.) Note that my review applies to the Compact Flash card adapter, NOT the SD card adapter.5Avoid, buggy, support should fix firmware. Once installed in a Win 10 system and connected to an Asus Rog Strix 470F motherboard (AMD - ASMedia USB 3.1 Gen 2 header), the card reader would initially work but after a few minutes when the video screen enters sleep mode would stop working with a Win 10 USB error code and warning popup. This continues to happen even after all USB drivers were updated via the Device Manager. Changing the USB power settings for Selective Suspend did not fix the issue.Update - 12/27/2018 - Tried various methods suggested by StarTech support and none worked. Essentially, the StarTech would eventually sleep and not wake up.Update - 12/30/2018 - I substituted an ATech XM-37U internal card reader and that works perfectly. Unfortunately it is too late to return the StarTech so I have to eat its cost. AT $50+, the ATech is expensive, but you get what you pay for. 1Very Handy Tool As a photography hobbyist, I tend to take a lot of pictures. I always got tire of having to pull out my external card reader, plug it into the USB drive, cussing it because the cord was too short....but it always worked pretty good and downloaded the images quickly from the SD card. After that card reader quit working, I started searching for a replacement. Which is when I came upon the StarTech.com 3.5-Inch Front Bay 22-In-1 USB 2.0 Internal Multi Media Memory Card Reader. I have only had occasion to use it a few times, but it works very well. It was shipped quickly and arrived in good shape. This unit is very easy to install if you have a least a modicum of experience with installing external drives to your computer and hooking things up to your motherboard. Once installed, I turned the computer on, the driver software automatically installed and it worked immediately.I had also purchased the StarTech 3.5-Inch to 5.25-Inch Floppy Mounting Kit Bracket (Black Plastic), which I realized later that I didn't need. If you have a slot already available for a floppy drive, you probably won't need this bracket.I would highly recommend this product, especially if you have several different types of memory cards that you use for various applications. 5SHALLOW DEPTH EQUALS BENT PINSOrdered this for a customer who uses CF cards. The problem with the design of this device at least for the CF slot, has to do with slot alignment and the poor path for inserting cards due to the shallow depth. Here is the problem. The CF card is 1 3/8" deep. The StarTech CF slot is only 3/8" deep leaving one inch exposed. The shallow depth allows the card to be inserted at varying angles causing pins to bend in their device. Once a pin bends, it's almost impossible to trust a device like this. In comparison, I measured another card reader from a Dell P/N: 0W812M and it has a depth of one inch that perfectly aligns the CF card on the inner rails, making it almost impossible to bend pins. I now have a device returned from a customer due to this issue and will have to replace it out of pocket. I would suggest you look elsewhere for a card reader if you are using CF cards, the other slots seem fine mostly because the other cards are shorter and therefore end up with more card lining up on the inner guides.See photo (hopefully this helps others)TOP card reader is the Dell | Bottom card reader is the StarTech1Pins bent out of box; failed when i needed it most. All ports EXCEPT the C.F. port work perfectly as advertised. First time I tried to use C.F. port, I happened to take a look with a flashlight and pins were bent.Bought before I built my new system, old one did not support USB 3.0 natively (onboard Marvell USB 3.0 12xx controller on Asus Rampage III Gene x58 with i7 980x from 2009 or 2010 that USB 3 speeds never worked on), so kept it in the box until I built my new, Kaby Lake i7 7700k system that would support it natively on the mobo.First time I try to put a C.F. card in, NOPE NOPE NOPE. Check with a flashlight, pins bent to hell and touching. I did not jam the C.F. card; I am always careful with all my gear, and buy reliable reputable kit. StarTed stuff has always been good. I was expecting it to work as it was new, just sitting, as the USB 2.0 port on my Nikon D300 died unexpectedly, so I actually needed to use a C.F. card reader.In the end, project was saved by an old USB 2.0 card reader, also by StarTech, that I had to drive over and scavenge from my folks computer, which was also my old Rampage Gene/i7 980x system.I would gladly rescind my 1 star rating if StarTech would accommodate this unfortunate situation or reach out to me. Otherwise everything works flawlessly and fairly speedy.Granted it has sat since January of 2016, and I should have checked it out first, but I did not expect the card reader to have bent pins; a simple q&a check could have caught it. I never even unboxed or installed it until Feb 28 2017, when I built this new system. 1Ouch, poor quality. Found a far better card reader.Pretty tough to find an internal SD card reader that supports UHS-II speeds from an internal USB 3.0 socket. This StarTech reader looked cheap, and had some dubious reviews, but I gave it a try.On my Dell Optiplex 790, I plugged it into an add-on Inateck PCIe to USB 3.0 2-Port card at the internal 20 pin USB socket, and I was able to use the StarTech external USB 3.0 port, but had no indicator light, and could not read SD, CF, or memory stick cards. I took the thing apart and carefully examined the cable and connections, but could not find the problem. The circuit board holding the card reader sockets by the way is poorly aligned with the face plate, and the circuit board mounts are easily bent further out of alignment with a little extra push while inserting a card. I returned this thing to Amazon along with the StarTech 5.25/3.5 adapter.I finally found a far better quality UHS-II SD card reader on BH video, an HP 15-in-1 USB 3.0 internal media card reader that does CF and MS cards too, and it includes a quality 5.25 to 3.5 adapter. Only downside is no front plate USB 3.0 port. Plugged it in to the 20 pin adapter on my usb 3.0 PCIe card, works great first time, whew.1
