I know so many people that go out and buy card readers for the memory card that is in their digital camera. The Aperture M is a great solution and one that you cannot lose as it is mounted inside of your case. It supports pretty much any storage card out there (CF, MD, SM, XD, SD, SDHC, SDXC, MMC, MS, M2, and MicroSD).
The addition of the two USB 3.0 ports gives the Aperture M something many card readers do not have. If you upgraded your system, but not your case it is unlikely that your case has USB 3.0 ports. The Aperture M makes a great addition to your case and not only adds dual USB 3.0 ports, but a card reader as well. I would have liked to see a USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter for people whose motherboards do not have USB 3.0 headers so you could still make use of the dual USB ports.
The Aperture M sells for $34.99 at my favorite online retailer, which may be a little more expensive than other card readers, but don’t forget about the dual USB 3.0 ports. Overall ThinkComputers give the NZXT Aperture M a 9 out of 10 score.
- Dual USB 3.0 ports
- Card reader supports pretty much every card available
