Cute and Tiny drive with a major limitation. – USB Mini SDHC Micro SD/TF Card Reader - Black (480Mbps/8GB) Reviews

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

Pros:
Small enough that it can be left semi-permanently in a USB slot. For example, in a car stereo with USB connector, or as a Readyboost/Readydrive flashdrive under Vista or Win7.
Cons:
Increasingly obsolete, due to the listed specifications of an 8GB maximum size, and at this point many microSD cards are larger than that (I have not attempted to test any cards beyond the limit).
Other:
USB connector is designed such that it can be accidentally inserted upside down (although fortunately, there are no consequences to this mistake except that it won't work).
Bottomline:
Newer and better drives with almost identical designs exist, might as well get one of them instead.
