Very cheap card reader, perfect for DIY projects – Mini USB 2.0 SDHC SD/MMC Card Reader (Black) Reviews

posted by Cubytus on 03/29/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Very cheap for what I wanted to do (add a card reader to my router).
Cons:
SD-USB converter chip is not soldered, it's reduced to its simplest expression: hidden under a blob of black resin. Next to imposible to desolder the SD socket without destroying something.
Other:
I kept everything attached together, and only removed the casing. USB connector still works for emergency situations where the router wouldn't. Build quality was good enough for my application, but may be insufficient for heavy use.
Bottomline:
For heavier use, there are other, better card readers out there.
