      Comments about IOGEAR 12-in-1 Pocket Card Reader/Writer (White):

      Best thing about this card reader is that I can still have my external hard drive in one USB and this reader in the other at the same time. It's white, so it's easy to find in my bag, and its small. Great for traveling. Simplicity at it's best.

          Since the Iogear card reader uses a cable for the USB connection it fits into the USB port on my MacBookPro without having to disconnect the cable next to it.

                    I have an inexpensive lap top computer and was really frustrated when the SD card reader quit working. This device works very well and is small and compact. I like the fact that it's colored white; so easy to find in my gadget bag. Good job IOGEAR.

                              I got this recently and it FAST compared to my Nikon D7000. Before my images would slowly show up in the file, now it is basically instant regarless if there are a few files or hundreds RAW files. I like the fact that it has a cord instead of the whole thing sticking out from the side of the computer.

                              Had lost one for a while, got this again to replace it. Found the old one, now I have two so I can have one in my bag. It works okay. USB 2.0, but of little concern since there's no video being done. I use it on my Dell U2412M's USB hub. No issue with detection or drivers.

                                With it's cabled USB connection it readily plugs into the port on my computer with no other adapter necessary. Very reasonably priced. It gets a ten.

                                  Got this for my photography class. Nice clean and white outlook. Quality is okay and great price!

                                      There really isn't much to say about a card reader but this one suits me well. It works! The white color matches my macbook which doesn't have any built in card reader. I wish that it read compact flash (CF) cards too but then it would be larger and you can't have it all. Beside, I already have a CF card reader by Lexar (which is too large and the SD reader on it doesn't work, hence the purchace of this reader). For the price, you really can't go wrong with the iogear 12 in 1. Funny they call it a 12 in 1 when there's only three holes. But then I'm old school and learned arithmetic. Maybe this is what algebra was all about......

                                        My laptop currently has a card reader built in, but this is great when I don't have my laptop with me and I need to review images on my card elsewhere. The product is economically priced, and I'm very satisfied with it.

                                          I use it when traveling. My MacBook Pro's USB slots are too close together to use the older reader that had a fatter plug on it. This one has a short cable that works great for my uses.
