    50-in-1 Portable Card Reader is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 42.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very, very slow I really like the design and the look of this card reader, but had a huge problem getting it to read CF cards in my Macbook. Each time I put a CF card in the reader, there was an error message about not enough power to use the USB, so the USB would be shut off until sufficient power was available. I'm not sure if it helped or not, but I had somewhat better luck when I used the Macbook connected to a power supply. I do not have problems with my other (LaCie) cardreader, which is basically the same construction, so I really don't understand if I just got a lemmon or if it is this model that isn't so good. Since I purchased it at B&H in NYC and live overseas, it's not really worth it for me to return the item. However, I probably will not purchase this item again, nor can I recommend it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't last very long I bought 10 of these for use in my Video Production class. For a few months, they were great. Then, at almost the same time, they all began to fail. I would not recommend them to others.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light weight device I use this product at work for the two computers in my office that do not have SD card reader ports. They are so light weight that you can easily carry them in your laptop bag without any worries. Even though the SD cards do not 'click' into place like most readers, a red lights turns on while a connection is being made with the device. The only real complaint would be the length of the USB cord. Great low cost product. It has paid for itself in the first week of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb portable card reader This superbly-built little device reliably transfers 3 gigs of photos to my computer in 3 minutes. My now-retired card reader took 2-1/2 HOURS to download 3 gigs--really!!! I have wasted hundreds of hours over the past few years using a long-outdated card reader and not realizing it. This is an inexpensive, fantastic little device that is reliable, well built, light and small and most-easily carryable.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from You Get What You Pay For This is a very inexpensive reader and as always you get what you pay for. If you are a pro I would recommend a better model. This one has consistently slower transfer rates than other readers I have. The build quality is also very plasticy. I bought two to throw in multiple bags so that I don't have to remember if I brought a reader, but even though it's cheap I would recommend a better reader.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk, Poor Design I used this device maybe 20 times since getting it in September as a backup for my venerable SanDisk SDDR-89. Editing after a state football championship game, I got a message on my MacBook Pro about too much load on the USB port and the thing went dark. The way the USB connector is designed places too much strain on the small wires which cracked and failed (see photo).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very essential for downloading files. This little device is essential for reading and downloading my photo files. Its incredibly versatile for reading various card sizes along with portability and awesome design. The USB connector folds very conveniently in place under neath the light weight. Its very fast in data transfer and more importantly, its made beautifully with a quality feel and look.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its decent for price It works fine for a lower price card reader. You just have to watch when you insert a compact flash card. If it doesn't go in straight it will bend the pins. you got to be easy with it. I was out of town and didn't want to buy another one when I had a good one left behind. It does the job and will still do the job if you are easy with it. Common sense.
