      Bought this reader after frustrations with my other card reader. SD cards fit in a slot along the length as opposed to in the end like so many other readers. This allows a slim profile that will fit anywhere a normal USB jump drive will. Accompanies me on all my travels.

      Seems well made -- compact design. On my older Windows XP/USB 1.0 PC it takes multiple plug/unplug, uninstall/install cycles to get it to recognize that memory media is present. It does work eventually but I have a cheaper reader that works every time so I'll be using that one instead until I get a new PC, (most likely sooner than later)

          I have been using a built-in card reader on a Dell monitor. The CF cards worked fine. Not so with the SD cards. I read all the reviews on these card reader on the B&H site. Everyone seemed to give this one a very good rating. I agree. I bought 2. One for my wife. ........

                  Giving it four stars because of the way the SD card loads into the reader. My other brand houses the card and encloses it so it doesn't stick out from the side. Don't guess that matters much. This is very small and easy to pack.

                                  Have 2 of these, 1 of which is always in my shoulder bag. They are not glamorous but they handle SD and micro SD cards reliably and that is what they should do. Sometimes wish they had a loop for carry strap but minor thing.

                                      I bought this to use micro hdsc cards in a pc. That requires an adapter, but the adpter came with the card, so not a big deal. The form factor is nice, it has a cap, and it works fine with xp without loading any drivers.

                                        I use this to read my memory cards with both my laptop and the school computers. This is perfect. Its exactly what I needed. Instead of copying all my images onto a flashdrive before class, I simply bring this with my memory cards. Just plug it in and your off!

                                              SD card fits into side of unit and still clears the little door covering the USB port on my desktop computer.

                                              Handy device, once you surmount the significant challenge of extracting it from the plastic packaging.

                                                This is a great, simple, inexpensive way to get your photos from your camera to your computer. I have several of these, and wouldn't use anything else. Transcend makes great stuff, period. If you have any doubts, buy it anyway!

                                                  Works great and seems to be a little faster than other Card Readers. Good for up to 32GB.

                                                    It beats the competition as most won't read SDXC yet. I don't know if SDXC will be a preferred format in the future.

                                                    Great value. good quality.

                                                        I use this to read a SD-HC card from my Canon PowerShot camera. It's a great compact card reader that works.

                                                            I needed to get photos from two different types of card and this worked just super. Great value and the shipping was fast!

                                                              Limited to SD cards but an outstanding little reader. Runs quickly and has never produced a read or write error that can occure with a good memory card. Compact and carries easily in my notebook case. Looks good, not cheap, and does exactly what it is suppose to do.
