Any Card Reader with LCD or led display?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I am looking to install a Card Reader to my new built for which i am collecting all the components. Shopping around for a Card Reader.
One problem i find with all the card readers are that they look ugly, ruining the look of the front panel. Hence i was looking for a card reader that has some sort of LCD display, or lights to it.

Infact i found one.. that is AeroCool CoolPanel3
http://www.aerocool.com.tw/index.php.../33-coolpanel3



But it does not sit plush on the case, meaning the jagged edges of the card reader looks way off when attached with the case.
ANyone has better suggestions.

I think Aerocool is going to be your only option. They kinda specialize in all the lights and touchscreen stuff.

Just grab a little external that plugs into a USB for a tiny fraction of the price and doesnt look like ass or block airflow if your case has mesh in front. you can even slip it under the case and out of site when not in use if the case has feet, or put it on your desk for easy acess

Yikes! unno what you are doing on your desk. Although come to think of it, if i used the same one I got for my mother it would have suffered the same fate by now (its just a thin plastic 50-in-one thing).

If you only need SD/MS/MMC you can get what I have from sony. Its tiny and made of thick aluminium. Looks great and ive sat my entire case on top of it a few times and nothing happened buy a little dent.

Mind you I can barely pick up my case for more than a few seconds with all the WC gear and such. very heavy.

Ther sony one is a bit over priced though but it'll survive just about anything and looks great if all you need is the listed formats. Dunno if its still being sold though since when i went to get one for mum they were only setting a new version (same construction and price, but twice the size with more formats - wouldnt fit under the case or w/e)
