  • Great idea, disappointing performance

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Even smaller than I imagined it would be, support for many cards.

    Cons:

    Compact Flash slot is unclear which side is up or down, and one of the pins bent very easily. (Or was bent already...) When transferring, it frequently has I/O errors, or another message saying "parameter is incorrect". One file will take half a second to transfer, another will time out and never finish.

    OtherThoughts:

    Have not tested other formats. I got this product in order to have a very portable reader for my dSLR's photos.

    I guess I am not too surprised for a product with absolutely no "brand" references, and a warranty image with arabic writing on an otherwise all-english box.

    Bottomline:

    I am sure there are other alternatives that are more reliable. This may still be a good buy for the other card formats, but it may have issues with a high-speed card.
