Perfect compact card reader – 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:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Has slots for micro sized cards so no need for adapters anymore. - Tested: doesnt need drivers Windows XP/Vista/7. - Speed is as good as best readers I have used. Reads at ~20-25MB/s for 8GB SDHC, ~10MB/s for MS Micro and Micro SD. - White part is single peice of plastic, solidly built. - Compact and USB cable folds in neatly. - Shows just 1 drive in My Computer, so doesnt crap up your screen with drives you dont use :p - Cards insert nicely and securely.
Cons:
- Bought 2, one was perfect but other came with a bent and dented usb connector. Used pliers to bend it back into shape before it was possible to insert into USB port. - Cant choose colour, I got one black, one pink. - The transparent coloured piece on top seems a little cheap and flimsy but I think even if this bit breaks off cards will still insert and work fine. - Horrible ultra bright red LED when you plug it in. - Reads 1 card a time, only.
Other:
It has all the slots I need for all my cards. I think this is a very useful design.
Bottomline:
Fantastic value for such a nice and useful designed product.
