Good, but one key flaw – Mini TF/TransFlash/MicroSD USB 2.0 Card Reader Reviews

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

Pros:
This is a nice little microSD USB reader. It handles microSDHC cards flawlessly, up to at least 8GB - that's the biggest card I have to test with. (You can barely make out the SDHC logo in some of the closeup photos.)
Cons:
The biggest downside to this item is that it doesn't enclose the card. From the images, I'd expected that the red part would open, you'd insert the card, and you'd close it again to have a tiny flash drive. This is not the case - what you see in the main photo is the underside of the device. The top features an open slot, the card barely slides in, and it's completely exposed. I would NOT advise carrying this with a card inserted, under any circumstances. Also, it doesn't come with a lanyard, but that's no big deal.
Other:
Bottomline:
It's a great reader for around the house, or to throw in a camera bag, but don't use it as a substitute flash drive.
