This unit went into a recent computer build. It fits perfectly and is of good quality, offering some great access and utility of additional ports with a very clean external design and useability.
What was very puzzling was why the manufacturer chose to require available 1394 and USB ports, seemingly external ones, to which to run the internal cables to. These cables were standard 1394/USB cables and not equipped with motherboard 2x5 connectors...a configuration which is simply common sense and typical of these kind of units. It took a bit of hunting around for custom cabling to make it work as it should, but once the unit was installed properly, it was a much valued install. Again, the only downside was the 6-steps forward, 2-steps back approach to connectivity...you net gain 4 new ports when you should have added 6 new ports. If the manufacturer got their act together and provided MB connectivity so that when you installed 6 ports, you gained 6 useable ports, I would highly recommend this unit and manufacturer. As it stands, I wouldn't purchase another of these units because of the port trade-off.
