Alrite for the price...with a small mod – Mini TF/TransFlash/MicroSD USB 2.0 Card Reader Reviews

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

Pros:
1. Cheap
2. Works with my 4Gb card
3. Better than those single slot-type usb card readers
Cons:
1. Doesn't enclose the card sufficiently.
2. No lanyard provided.
3. Rather flmsy packaging but still passable.
Other:
I had a sandisk 8gb micro-sd card that came with a reader virtually identical to this, so I thought might as well get another one for another mcro-sd card. Turns out the slot isn't as deep as the orginal sandisk one, so you can't leave the card inside and just drop it in your bag or pocket or keys as the card sticks out a fair bit.
I modded the thing a bit by taping the card to the reader and poking a small hole through for the lanyard. I don't need to remove the card from the reader repeatedly, so it's fine with me, but if you need to, then you'll have to figure out another way.
Bottomline:
Get it if you need it.
