Seems ok – 8-Pin Lightning TF / SDHC / USB Flash Drive Memory Card Reader for iPad 4 / iPad Mini - White Reviews

posted by Freetax on 04/25/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Small item that should work with 3 different types of memory. The SD-slot worked very well, and the pictures showed in my iPad Mini after some seconds.
Cons:
The TF-slot is working up side down compared to what is showed at the unit. The USB-slot sais that "the unit needs to much current" or something like that when using a small USB TF-reader.
Other:
As another user wrote: I was bit skeptical after reading so much on the net about "very high tech" and "built-in protection chip" and "impossible to copy". (The lightning plug) Therefore very happy when it just works. Be aware that the I-device only wants to read pics and vids, and also expects cards to be formatted thereafter (catalog "/DCIM", special file naming etc)
Bottomline:
Seems to do what I wanted to. Have not tried it connected to a camera. Did not work to import MP4 videoes at 700MB (movies), even though it was in a DCIM catalog....
