Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Premium, well made, works great. So this is partly a review, and partly some things that should have been in the instruction manual, but aren't. :-) The review bit: This is a well made box based on a Genesys Logic GL3522 hub and a Realtek RTS5301 card reader. Front panel is a nice glossy brushed aluminium finish. Also contrary to another review, the USB3 ports *are* fully backwards compatible with USB 2.0 drives, everything works just as it should. Now, the instructions bit: There are two power connectors on the back, an SATA and a Molex passthrough. It isn't made clear in the manual but these *aren't* an either/or proposition. In order to get full functionality you (slightly annoyingly) need to connect *both* of these, thereby causing more case wiring than you might like. The SATA powers the pair of USB power only ports, while the Molex powers the USB3 hub. This isn't made clear in the manual, so if you wire it up and something doesn't work, make sure you connected both power headers. Maybe this has been done deliberately in order to ensure that the USB power sockets get adequate current (or run off a different PSU rail to the hub) but that seems unnecessary. Also bear in mind that the single USB2.0 header connects and powers the smart card reader only. If you don't need this functionality, you don't need to connect this header. Once you get it set up, it does the job great. Not cheap, but a quality item nevertheless. 08 January 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very Good Product This is an excellent card reader with the convenience of faster charging for Ipad. The only strange thing is when you connect the usb 3 to the motherboard header, the usb sockets will not work with usb 2 products. Usb 3 no problems. If you want to read usb 2 flash drives you are better off with a different product. 05 September 2014

details of this are sparse, even on Akasa's website.

I would like to know if the 4 usb 3.0 ports run from a single 19pin usb 3.0 header?

Answer: 
Yes, the USB3.0 hub *and* the card reader run via the 19 pin connector - but note that you will also need to connect the Molex passthru power cable, which powers the hub.
