sure you can buy it all seperately but for those who has HTPC or a limited space on their case or car (me), this will also add memory card reader with out loosing a floppy drive. I would rather have that than a bulky seprate card reader. It's the same reason why most of us are looking for a small "all in one" motherboard as oppose to a cheap m-atx with nothing on board. If you have the room, more power to you. If you dont have the room, this would be a good drive.
