Seems great for a tenner - I assuming the fact there's no mention of SDHC is an oversight by them.

Also, its not that common to have a smaller 3.5" bay that has front access, so check first!

£6.11 + £3.22 (delivery) = £9.33

So can you put a SIM card in it and use it for internet access?

SIM Phone Book editing/backup ---> ONLY

mumbojumbo
What does the IR receiver let you do?

use an IR remote control

I had one that looked like this a while ago BUT it was only USB1 and the page never once states if it is USB1 or USB2. If it's a usb1 then reading a memory card with this thing is TOOO SLOOOWWWWW.
#7
wow didnt know these existed
#8
Anyone know how this connects? to the motherboard apart from with the "motherboard connector" - what connection is it? I need to check I have it on my motherboard :s
#9
It connects to a USB header. There is a bit of discussion on the Ebuyer product discussion forum for this item Ebuyer forum

Says "cable length is 50 cm from the back of the unit. please check this will reach your motherboard connector before purchasing.".
I think it will be a USB cable or the USB header (2x5) ont the mobo. Otherwise its IDE(ATA) or SATA.

Edit: Floppy cable may be a possibility but I doubt that.

May be old stock that does not accept SDHC
#12
Looking at the Ebuyer forum someone states in post 18 that it reads and writes to their SDHC 4 card.

Decent 5.25 adapter for this? Got an antec 300 so I have no 3.5 bays :(

Best question ever!

Not particularly good value, you can get the same thing without the (useless) Sim slot and IR off eBay for £2.11 delivered - it accepts all cards and is definately USB2.

Probably be short short a cable to go from a 5.25" (depends on case motherboard orientation though), transfer speeds can be slow on these cheap ones. Akasa do a good one with Micro SD and M2 native but it is more expensive (http://www.shop.bt.com/products/akasa-3-5--6-internal-6-slot-media-card-reader-756T.html?utm_source=google&utm_medium=product+search&utm_content=RR00) cheapest I can see it for.

Or if you want to read 2.5" sata drives and USB 3.0 (http://www.akasa.co.uk/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Card%20Reader/Hub&type_sub=Card%20Reader&model=AK-ICR-10U3)

Most phones come with a USB cable as standard, so the SIM slot is of dubious benefit. Also most PC's have a 2.5" bay and most card readers are of 2.5" configuration and can be bought for about a tenner. So COLD!

Who really still has a case with a 3.5" external bay.


No one, since cases do not generally have 3.5" external bays ;)

Yes they do, where do you think this goes.

Internal is hard drives, external is optical drives.floppies, card readers etc.
Depends on your classification. I would call the internal ones for HDDs as the racks or cages but the 3.5" ones also internal as the actual component is housed within the PC, it just happens to be that it can be accessed from the inside. I know its abit silly but I', sure most people are the same i.e. Xeijin

I think if you described your logic for naming drive bays to anyone who's worked with PCs you'd generally get a blank or quizical look.

This is designed to go in an external 3.5" bay. End of story.

Internal/External Refers to whether or not the bay is accesible from the exterior of the case.

And for the record, loads of PC cases have external 3.5" bays, my antec P180 for example.

Yep, right you are. I blame crack and a long absence from PC building.

If anyone needs the software for this it can be downloaded for here:Link
It seems to be the same version but I had better luck with it detecting the hardware correctly.
Also the sim reader will not read a Virgin sim correctly, sms is OK but not showing any contacts, anyone had any better luck?
#27
Had another problem today, if this is connected I cannot run a USB powered hard drive form the usb on my computer, it just hangs, so this must be drawing to much power for them both to work.
