Too many problems to make it a keeper – SD/MMC/MS/DUO/XD 6-in-1 Memory Card Reader Black Reviews

posted by JoshL on 12/13/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Functions well, reasonable transfer speed, reads MS Pro Duo-type memory.
Cons:
Pro Duo memory card fits flush into reader and is very difficult to remove. No obvious keying/labling to assist in making sure you get the card right-side-up. It fits in both directions and you have to be cautious to make sure you don't get it in up-side down. The plastic cap that covers the memory-card side of the reader is fragile and easily broken. Mine broke off on the first day of use. Use of the reader isn't impaired but it keeps it from being a neat, pocketable unit.
Other:
I bought this to keep as part of my PSP kit but found that the cons were too extensive to make this a convenient piece of hardware for frequent use.
Bottomline:
I'm not happy with this card reader. While it does function as advertised, I would choose a different alternative over this unit.
