Soyo BayOne XP 9-In-1 Multi-Card Reader

The Soyo BayOne XP is a 9-in-1 multi-card reader that can be installed in a 3.5” or 5.25” drive bay for easy front panel access. It features support for 8 flash media standards and one front USB 2.0 port.

Soyo paid attention to the small details that makes the BayOne XP really enjoyable to own and use. They included black and silver bezels in addition to the standard beige bezel so that we won't have to worry about matching it with the color of the case

They also covered the USB cable in a nice wire mesh sleeve so that it won't look ugly for those of us who have windowed cases. The BayOne XP also has an activity light to show when power is running through it or when a card is inserted as well as whenever there's activity.

The only gripe I could possibly think off is the 5.25" bay adapter as it only comes in beige. But overall, I am very happy with this card reader.
