NZXT Announces Aperture M Media Reader

For as useful as case-mounted USB ports are for connecting USB devices quickly to your computer, removable media comes in an increasingly wide variety of formats. Having a media reader as part of your machine’s array of front-panel ports is mighty handy, and NZXT just released a full-featured one that will give your rig a nice upgrade.

The Aperture M is a 5.25-inch unit with a mesh design that slots into an ODD tray. It sports your standard pair of USB 3.0 ports, which is always nice to have, but it also supports a host of media cards.


NZXT claims the Aperture M supports “nearly every media card in the market”, and indeed, it can handle CF, MD, SM, XD, SD, SDHC, SDXC, MMC, MS, M2, and MSD cards. The price tag is $34.99, which isn't a bad deal for those who want to ensure that their machine supports any media card they'll come across.

It's a little too expensive for me.

was sorta hoping for a selling price of maybe $29 & might sell on the street for a bit less. updating a card reader and needing to get a 5.25  bracket would almost cost the same on chassis sans the smaller bays and may not quite look as 'right' as this unit does.

Still gotta hand in out to NZXT for coming up with this one, & it should do pretty well.
