      Comments about Sony Portable Memory Card Reader/Writer:

      My last memory card, which was not Sony, broke after a year while I was on the road and could not download any photographs! This time I got two of these Sony memory cards to have a back up. It has been working very well so far, but I have not had it for a long time. It is slim and does not take up much space. It also has a protection cap.

        Comments about Sony Portable Memory Card Reader/Writer:

        This was the second fastest of 4 USB memory stick readers I tried. 50 seconds for 1.7 gigabytes of raw files. I wish Sony made an adapter for memory stick to SD slot (since their cameras except both it should be possible. It is a nice clean design and seems durable. Small enough to be easy to travel with.

          Comments about Sony Portable Memory Card Reader/Writer:

          I've used this to transfer photos/videos from Sony Pro HG Duo HX memory stick. It truly supports the 8 bit parallel transfer speed which get the job done a lot faster. Without this parallel capability, you would not be able to benefit from the high speed of the HX memory stick.

              Comments about Sony Portable Memory Card Reader/Writer:

              Shoulders of this unit are a little big for most installations. Only supports Sony DUO cards and SD,or SD-HC. Seems slow to start under Windows 7 as compared to other stick readers.

              Comments about Sony Portable Memory Card Reader/Writer:

              My computer SD reader did not recognize my SanDisk 16GB Extreme Pro - SDHC - UHS Speed Class 1 card, so I ordered this Sony Reader. Just plug it into a USB slot (I use Widows XP)and it works. Magnitudes faster than using your camera to transfer files.
              The only potential design weakness is that the cap, which I am sure will be soon lost.

                Comments about Sony Portable Memory Card Reader/Writer:

                The reader works great with both Sony Memory Sticks and SDHC cards. It appears to be fairly rugged and is small enough to fit in a shirt pocket or the side compartment of a small camera bag or case. This is useful when I am on the road and want to download photos to a USB thumb drive via my netbook. I don't have to bring a USB cable with me.
