I hope you can throw USB 2.0 through these. ;)

I had one of these in the past, for a week or so. Had an Asus motherboard and you could order this bay with it. But it had way to few buttons and the display kinda sucked and the color was very different from my case. So I returned it. But this thing is looking really nasty!

I also love these things where you can set the fan speed yourself! And an exit for sound and video is awesome as well!

Dennis yes the front ports are USB 2.0. What I like is the fan control, and the fact that it's easy to setup. No it's really a great little gadget for few bucks.
