Last week during the discussion of the Antec P183 case, several of us got side bared discussing the front ports on the case. Several of us don't use them and don't like having them on the case. While others found the ports to be extremely useful. What are your thoughts on the subject? Does your case have ports on the front panel? Do you use those ports? Only certain ports, or all of them?

Have Firewire, USB and Audio all wired up but the USB is the only one I use regularly.

Connecting an eSATA drive. :P It's faster than USB 2 and FireWire 800.

Sata 3.0 will be out, it would be faster than Usb 3.0. When there is a new Sata is going to be a new eSata. Although, I wish they would rename the Satas to match what they do. Sata 1.5, Sata 3, and Sata 6 instead of Sata I, Sata II, and Sata III. I'm gonna see people buying Sata 3 drives and thinking they are the new Sata III (Sata 6).

 

 

I use my two Usb ports in the front. Have a firewire, but mobo has no firewire inputs. Plus no firewire devices anyways. Next case I'll make sure to get one with audio ports in the front.
