NZXT Aperture M Review

Meet NZXT’s First Card Reader

Being a product reviewer, one thing I need to spend a lot of time doing is taking pictures. Once pictures are taken of course, they somehow need to end up on my computer. For most of us, this means constantly connecting the camera via USB to your computer. Unfortunately, for those who constantly take pictures, transfer them, and need to take more pictures, this is a huge hassle. The other way to do this is to have a memory card reader, which will allow you to simply pop out a memory card and have it read by a pre-attached memory card reader. For those familiar with memory card readers, you’ll probably be most familiar with the external type. These are typically small devices that connect via USB. Easy to use, easy to install, but for the most part it’s just another little piece of clutter sitting on your desk. The other type of memory card reader is the internal type.

Today, we’ll be taking a look at the NZXT Aperture M. The Aperture M is an internal type card reader, which will allow you to mount it on one of your spare 5.25″ drive bays thus reducing desk clutter. The device comes with two parts – the memory card reader with support for up to ten different memory card formats and a USB 3.0 hub. Is it worth your consideration? Let’s find out!
