    For those who do not have a free PC bay available or prefer a handy device for their workspace should grab the Sharkoon USB3.0 External Card Reader. The external card reader with identical features contains an elegant case with rounded edges and a black high-gloss surface. The device measures 99 x 57 x 18 mm (L x W x H) and weighs 53 grams. Delivery includes a 120 cm long USB3.0 cable.

    The Sharkoon External 4-Port USB3.0 Hub in the same design provides its user with four USB3.0 ports within reach. Delivery also includes a 120 cm long USB3.0 cable, plus a separate power pack for its power supply. The Hub measures 97 x 56 x 23 mm (L x W x H) and weighs 67 g.

    End customers will find the new Sharkoon USB3.0 products available in authorized retailers.

    If had some USB ports on it I would be interested. I need to replace my aging Lian-Li reader installing it's aging drivers on Win 7 is tricky at best but it does have a USB port on it. I broke the ones on my case so having a USB port on it is handy.

    The new NZXT reader is much more appealing(tho a bit more expensive)
