Reviews give very mixed results for card readers with USB 3.0 and maybe eSATA ports. Can you recommend a reliable brand and model?

[I'm a NEWBIE, I don't know the proper terminology, but this unit is to be installed in a drive bay and is to be accessable through the front of the computer case.]

Thank you for help with this.

I use and highly, highly recommend this model:

It's very well constructed and incredibly easy to install - you don't need extra mounting brackets to make it fit in your case, and it reads even the highest capacity cards, and you can read micro SD. Just slide the drive into the 5.25" bay, hook the USB headers to your motherboard and that's it.

I had a cheapo Rosewill one that was crap and couldn't read any card above 2GB.
