Introduction:

Normally I shy away from things like master panels because I thought that most things offered by it would be already there in the front IO panel provided with the case. But the card reader caught my eye on the Master Panel II, I have always had a terrible time trying to get pictures off my camera and PSP, I'm always losing that special cord that is used. So when I saw the card reader on this panel I was immediately very interested in it. First a little bit about the company and then we'll delve into this special beauty.
