MD3 Media Dashboard

August 26, 2009

The last three computers that have sat on my desk (or under it) have been computers that I’ve built myself. I will probably be building a new computer in the next month or two and this has had me searching for the components for my perfect PC. Part of the reason I’ll be doing it soon is so that I have a fresh new machine on which to install Windows 7. Once I have my final list of components, I’ll post the list so that you can build something similar if you so desire.

One thing I’d really like to have is a way to read memory cards in one of the drive bays. I have the external card readers and they work great. Unfortunately that means a USB port being used and a cord hanging around. I found a variety of card readers that fit into a drive bay, but was particularly intrigued by the MD3 Media Dashboard. In addition to reading all of the common media card formats (Microdrive, Memory Stick, SD Memory Card, SDHC Memory Card, CompactFlash Card), it includes USB ports, a Firewire port, eSATA ports, inputs for microphone and headphones as well as fan controllers and temperature displays. That is a lot of very useful things in one drive bay and it costs less than $40!
