  • Perfect compact card reader

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    - Has slots for micro sized cards so no need for adapters anymore.
    - Tested: doesnt need drivers Windows XP/Vista/7.
    - Speed is as good as best readers I have used. Reads at ~20-25MB/s for 8GB SDHC, ~10MB/s for MS Micro and Micro SD.
    - White part is single peice of plastic, solidly built.
    - Compact and USB cable folds in neatly.
    - Shows just 1 drive in My Computer, so doesnt crap up your screen with drives you dont use :p
    - Cards insert nicely and securely.

    Cons:

    - Bought 2, one was perfect but other came with a bent and dented usb connector. Used pliers to bend it back into shape before it was possible to insert into USB port.
    - Cant choose colour, I got one black, one pink.
    - The transparent coloured piece on top seems a little cheap and flimsy but I think even if this bit breaks off cards will still insert and work fine.
    - Horrible ultra bright red LED when you plug it in.
    - Reads 1 card a time, only.

    OtherThoughts:

    It has all the slots I need for all my cards. I think this is a very useful design.

    Bottomline:

    Fantastic value for such a nice and useful designed product.
