Great idea, disappointing performance – All-in-one Mini USB 2.0 Card Reader Reviews

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

Even smaller than I imagined it would be, support for many cards.
Compact Flash slot is unclear which side is up or down, and one of the pins bent very easily. (Or was bent already...) When transferring, it frequently has I/O errors, or another message saying "parameter is incorrect". One file will take half a second to transfer, another will time out and never finish.
Have not tested other formats. I got this product in order to have a very portable reader for my dSLR's photos. I guess I am not too surprised for a product with absolutely no "brand" references, and a warranty image with arabic writing on an otherwise all-english box.
I am sure there are other alternatives that are more reliable. This may still be a good buy for the other card formats, but it may have issues with a high-speed card.
