We always try to review every aspect of computing and all the likely additions you are going to add to your computer. Today is a turn of a Drive and Card Reader.

Akasa have such upgraded a popular model, the Akasa Baymaster and while it doesn’t look like they have made many changes, there is one big difference. It now takes advantage of USB 3.0 Superspeed, giving up to 10* faster data transfers when compared to USB 2.0.

There are lots of varieties of card readers, drive readers and fan controllers out there which offer you the chance to upgrade your standard case with lots of extra features. Some come in 5.25″ bay size and others, like the Akasa Baymaster come in the smaller 3.5″ bay size. This does unfortunately mean it is less compatible with cases, however it is possible to get adaptors to fit a 3.5″ drive into a 5.25″ bay.

Akasa have tried to fit in lots of very popular features into quite a small 3.5″ bay, this includes compatibility with 3 of the major memory card types: SD, Extreme Digital, and Memory Stick. While being compatible with nearly all of the varieties that are based around these 3. On top of that the Akasa Baymaster S has a 2.5″ drive reader, allowing you to plug in the laptop HDDs or SSDs that you might have.

    This product would be nicer if they added support for internal USB 3.0 headers. *Took me a while to guess "Takes up a USB 3.0", tbh… 🙂

    I feel that it may have been a good idea to show a picture of the HDD/SSD actually attached to it as some people may find it confusing. – ::YoYo Tech::

    I'm not quite sure how some people may find it confusing. There is a slot big enough for a 2.5" hard drive, and I think people got fairly use to the concept of VHS right?! So you just push it in until it clicks.In future I could certainly take a picture with the drive in, I would of done if it was 'unusual'.Simon
