  • *Not* USB 2.0

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

    Pros:

    Tiny, about 2x1 inches. Plastic feels solid.

    Cons:

    It's labeled as USB 2.0 on the package but it definitely is not. Transfer speeds (read and write) are all under 1 MB/s. The same class 6 SDHC card achieves 7MB/s write and 20 MB/s read on other USB 2.0 card readers on the same computer. Same slow speeds for CF cards.



    While the casing feels solid, the internal parts appear poorly made. The ports on the internal board are not aligned with the openings on the casing, so it takes a bit of effort to insert and remove cards.

    Bottomline:

    Good size. Very portable. But definitely not USB 2.0. It will take over 15 minutes to transfer a GB of data. With these speeds, the card reader is only useful in a pinch, but you'll want to invest in a faster one for daily use.
