Still using an old case with not much front-panel connectivity? This one's for you. Japanese peripherals maker Ainex announced the PF-213CR3, a 3.5-inch front-panel that adds a plethora of connectivity. It includes two common USB 2.0/1.1 ports, two high-powered (800 mA) USB 2.0/1.1 ports (yellow), which allow quicker charging of smartphones and tablets, a USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port, a multi-format card reader, and a USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port. The device draws power from a SATA power connector, to drive its card-reader and high-power USB ports. It connects to the system over standard USB 2.0/1.1 front-panel header, standard USB 3.0 header, and common HDMI. Slated for December 18, it is priced at 3,980¥ (US $48).

Really good add on. I hope it hits Europe shops as well.

Sadly when you have all these great ports, that means you have a crap ton of cords hanging out the back trying to do some cable management.
