Multi card reader,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Akasa AK-ICR-05 3.5" Bay Internal Card Reader (Electronics)
Bought this to replace my FDD which has not been used for ages; I wanted a simple convenient way of reading camera cards etc. Installation was easy but before you buy make sure your mother board has a spare USB riser - mine did. It comes with a black and pale grey front panel. On removing the black one the tags broke, this was not a problem because i wanted the pale one but did not create a good first impression. I've tested the common ports for SD and SIM cards; they work well. The SIM software is VERY basic and only lets you capture name and number but that said at least you will have a copy of them.
Overall well made easy to install no frills piece of kit - not tried the SMART cards reader.
It failed after 18 months. Tried several different MB usb risers and took it to pieces and checked the cable continuity between pins but alas it was dead and out of warranty. I then bough a cheap one from an auction site with no SIM reader but then I didn't use it since it was SO basic. I never did figure out what the SMART Card reader did.

Smart cards are things like some bank cards and most geneva convention ID cards. Most people who use smart card readers use military or civilian CAC's to access DOD websites from home.
