    I've had this reader for about 6 months and used it every day on a 20 day vacation this last summer. I love the small size. Very lightweight. The short cable was not an issue for me. In fact I like it short because it doesn't take up space in my computer bag or get tangled with any other cords.

    I thought the transfer speed was excellent! I was pleasantly surprised.

    Note when pushing in the cards, one must push firmly to get them all the way into the slot. The gold side of the contacts for both slots is facing the center of the reader (not top or bottom, but rather towards each other).

    A highly recommend this reader, especially with the price.

          Where else was I to get "photo corners"? Remember them? B&H, of course! No one else has the variety, technical knowledge, stock, convenience--with parking, and courteous, competent help, whether for a computer with extras or "photo corners". And they were transparent, as well. Thank you, B&H

              Comments about Aluratek Card Reader - USB 2.0:

              I went on a trip and since my new SLR used Secure Digital cards I left my multi-format card reader at home. I had bought a 64 GB Secure Digital card so I could shoot without changing cards but then found that my old reader, which was compact, would not download past 32 GB. It turned out that my new card was SDXC format, used for larger capacities larger than 32 GB. I looked at card readers in the store and saw this one: it's small and very light, so easily portable, and does its job well. I have not used it enough to know if it will keep on working but the brand is said to be reliable.

                I do not have USB 3.0 so I ordered this 2.0 unit. I like it because the plug-in doesn't cover up any other USB slots. So far I am very pleased with the speed of my downloads to the computer.

                      This is the perfect SDHC (and similarly sized cards) for me. After a day of shooting I just plug the USB into my Laptop slide my card into the reader, download and eject- pretty fast transfer. The short cable and its light weight are perfect for Laptops, though I'm sure if your main intention is to use it on a desktop it may make it a problem for you. Durability hasn't been a problem for me because I take care of my gear, but if you're concerned that it may not be durable enough for you, I'd say it depends on how much you knock about your equipment... like anything made of plastic, im sure it would break if thrown against a wall. but a short drop for a table top (about 3 to 4 feet) should be fine. though i dont recommend doing this test.

                        This adapter works well with the sdhc card. My mom, who is not technologically savy, is able to easily take the sd card from the camera and upload it to her computer using this adapter.

                        We were having to actually plug in our camera every time we wanted to dump footage, and now we can do our dumping much more cleanly and efficiently and on whichever computer happens to be open. I haven't found any drawbacks. There are no drivers or installation; just plug in a USB jack and go. No problems and easy to fit into those harder to reach USB jacks.

                            I use this little device with 32GB SDHC, so I don't have to connect my Nikon D5100 to PC. The reader works great, gets recognized by PC upon connection immediately.
                            The reader's cord is a little too short, so a USB extension cord would be handy.

                            Flimsy but does the job well.

                            I am using the Micro Sd card reader to import my Dslr (sd card) and zoom H1 (micro-sd card) into my computer. As of right now, the little machine works very quickly. It does the job it was intended to do, and it does it well. Now it is made of cheap plastic, and I can foresee it breaking within a couple months. Nevertheless, for the price, it's worth it!

                                  It's nice that it only takes up one USB port unlike many of its competitors that are bulky around the port they are plugged into. Other than that, it works like any other device in its class.

                                    Awesome form and function. This is a solid card reader. The slim usb cable fits into small places- way better than my previous card reader with usb built into body.

                                        I've had this reader for about 6 months and used it every day on a 20 day vacation this last summer. I love the small size. Very lightweight. The short cable was not an issue for me. In fact I like it short because it doesn't take up space in my computer bag or get tangled with any other cords.

                                        I thought the transfer speed was excellent! I was pleasantly surprised.

                                        Note when pushing in the cards, one must push firmly to get them all the way into the slot. The gold side of the contacts for both slots is facing the center of the reader (not top or bottom, but rather towards each other).

                                        A highly recommend this reader, especially with the price.
