Other:
What would you expect for a below $5 item ?
It works, reads SHDC (could not test other cards), that should be enough to get it if you are after a cheap SDHC reader.
Bottomline:
If you need some card reader but won't use it much, this is cheapest you can get and it just works.
Try to install it so you can plug it to motherboard, because cable is short.
