Summary Can't really complain. Picked this up on sale and it sure gets the job done. Would have been nice if it had USB 3.0 speeds, which you can get it for $9.99 I believe on sale vs $19.99 regular price.
Either way, I have had no issues with this. Definitely makes it easier hooking it up to my desktop as I don't have to hook up a camcorder or my DSLR with this.
Summary I got this reader for 2$ during a sale. I didn't even look at the thing, I saw how cheap it was a and was like hey, why not. When I first looked at it I laughed. It's a disgusting off-baby-blue colour with extremely poor quality graphic/text printing that you can pick off with your finger nails, and a low quality plastic enclosure with randomly placed holes for different memory cards around the sides.
To my surprise it's actually very good. All the slots work great, I was getting max transfer speeds for my class 10 SD cards, absolutely no hiccups, no random disconnections, transfer speeds didn't jump around, just an all around good functioning device.
What I actually find quite cool about it as well is that it can be used for a little "home project" type fun. The casing is easy to pry apart and inside is just a simple circuit board. I could easily see someone making their own casing for this. Also, the USB connection is easily unsolderable, making it easy to get rid of that tiny USB cable and adding a longer one if someone wanted to.
Summary I have owned one of these for over two years. I picked another one up for my mum when they went on sale. They are very very reliable, although ugly and fairly bulky when compared to more modern models.
Pros Dirt Cheap on sale. Stowing USB connector is a plus for storage
Cons None found yet
Summary A basic card reader for when you need a card reader in a pinch to transfer something on or off one of your many memory cards lying around. Nothing amazing about this product. It works and the storing of the USB connector is slick. Got it on sale for 2$, hard to go wrong at that price.
