    Universal Memory Bank 56-in-1 Memory Card Reader/Writer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and solid performer All PROSNo CONSSolid performance at the right price.Works as described.Cable more than ample length.PLUG & PLAY.Originally I bought the IOGEAR 56-in-1 card reader to use with an LG8250 from .... It was disabled by Verizon (from my understanding) causing MP3s to be transferred as SOUND files when using Bluetooth. The phone had been damaged and I cannot verify that it works with the LG8250 but MP3s transfer flawlessly from my Mac to my Motorola Barrage using a MicroSD card.As well, my girlfriend's PC is not Bluetooth capable. We no longer need to buy a USB Bluetooth adapter to tranfer photos between her computer and phone.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Memory Bank is great . This is just another excellent product offered by B&H ,anytime I need something! Yes the product works great and I can utilize any media card I need! The price was perfect,as so is the reputation of my B&H. I call this company my store,because it never fails to offer me what ever I need on a personal basis. I have been a long time customer, and can't see going to any other source for my photography needs! Keep up the excellent work B&H. You have a long time relation with me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent value Does what it is supposed to with almost every kind of memory card. And it's a good value to boot.
    Date published: 2009-03-12
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from has some considerations The unit can only be attached via the supplied cord, not connected directly into a USB contact. If you use a USB extension cord, the unit does not get enough power. You may plug it into a hub however. The slot for the Duo-stick is rather shallow so the stick extends out beyond the slot (be careful when inserting) There is no light on the card reader to let you know it is in operation (the most absent feature).
    Date published: 2010-03-02
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unusably Slow for CompactFlash I bought this for the sole purpose of transferring images from my CF cards to my computer without having to fire up my laptop (for which I have CF to PCMCIA adapter). Download time for a single 7MB file: Laptop with PCMCIA adapter: 7 seconds. Computer using this device: 107 seconds. Pros: At least it didn't corrupt the memory card. Cons: To slow to be of any use to me whatsoever.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I bought this gadget to use with a compact flash memory card in a camera that I am borrowing. I wanted my card reader to have slots for all other types of memory cards in case I buy my own digital camera with a different type of card. The price is right, and the card reader works just fine. It's super lightweight, which is just what I needed while traveling, and it's a very convenient shape, especially because its power cord is detachable. The only small iffy part is that the card reader does not offer much physical guidance for inserting a compact flash memory card. The pins for reading the card are set far enough back in the reader that you can't visually align them with your card -- and if you're not careful, it's easy to misalign the card with the little grooves on the sides of the slot meant to help you keep the card straight. But this is just a small problem that can be dealt with by being careful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Price for what you get So far this product was worth the price however the only complaint I have it is that at first our computers couldn't find or locate the USB and said product not found but after a few times it finally took it. Not sure if that was related to our computers or the product. Other than that once that computer located the card reader it worked just fine.
