Sometimes fails causing data corruption – USB 2.0 SDHC SD/Mini SD/Micro SD/TF/M2/MS Card Reader (16GB Max Color Assorted) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Compatible with SDHC, cheap, flexible cord for connection it to the USB, although it is something big. The MicroSD goes on the side and it contacts good.
Cons:
It is chinese quality, not recommended. Sometimes when writing to MicroSD it fails and causes computer to hang and data loss in the MicroSD.
Other:
The characteristics are the following: The construction is rather sturdy. I had shop-bought ultraflat cardreader that started to come apart at the seams after a week of repated use, but this one is really solid, a solid hunk of plastic with well-cut slots for MS, SD/miniSD, microSd and Sony MS, as small as it can without being frail. Especially if you plan to get a Slot-card for your Nintendo DS, or other items needing an external source for editing the flash memory accluded, even if the product description says there's a single purpose reader included, buy this one instead.
Bottomline:
Buy a good reader not chinese in a shop or a well know manufacturer, if you want SDHC.
