1 out of 5 eggsWon't write SD Card

Pros: Cheap

Cons: I picked unit based on brand and was disappointed. Lot's of errors when writing to SD Card. So many errors that transfers would fail. Threw unit in trash and bought another brand at retail store. It writes same SD Cards with no errors.

4 out of 5 eggsThese are fantastic!

Pros: Totally reliable, simple, small - actually reads everything I throw at it! I go through these like water, and this model keeps being the reliable one in my bag.

Cons: No read/write activity LED... that's about it, but for the money, can't fault this too much.

5 out of 5 eggsBought in 2009; still working

Pros: Over the past four years, it has read the SD and MS cards (and a couple of their variants) that I've put into it. Rather than constantly plugging and unplugging my various devices with their differing storage media into my computer, I simply keep this reader attached to my USB hub permanently. The short 2-inch cord reduces clutter, and keeps the reader within view and easy reach.

Cons: Due to the short 2-inch cord, it may be inconvenient for those whose only available USB port is in the back of a desktop tower.
The color scheme might be a cosmetic issue for some people. It seems to be the company's corporate colors, and it's probably meant to give the small device a high-enough visibility for quick use. I don't like the lime, but I don't care enough to be upset about it.

5 out of 5 eggsA plea for standardization

Pros: Works fine with my Memory Stick PRO Duo as well as with various SD and Micro SD cards. I actually like the lime green color and the short cable.

Cons: No Cons really for this IOGEAR Card Reader/Writer.

Other Thoughts: I bought this device since I recently was able to buy three five-year-old Point & Shoots at a farm sale -- a Sony, an Olynpus and a Canon -- all for seven bucks. I needed the Card Reader primarily for the Sony, for which I had to buy the Memory Stick. Not wanting to buy an xD card for the Olympus I ordered the adapter (haven't tried it out yet) needed for the OLympus in order to use a Micro SD card. Happily, the Canon takes SD cards. The Canon unfortunately doesn't show itself in Windows as a device, so a USB cable is of little use. In addition, I had to buy separate batteries and chargers for the three cameras. Can't we have some standardization in cards, chargers and OS interface!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, no-brainer

Pros: Works perfectly for a great price. Does everything it's marketed to do.
I tested it on Windows 7 and Linux (Debian Wheezy), and it worked perfectly in both. Detected instantly and read and wrote to all cards tested.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: For the price, a terrific little tool to keep in your desk drawer or in your travel bag... Works great.

2 out of 5 eggsCould Not Write to SD cards

Pros: Reads/writes Pro Duo cards (Sony PSP). Was able to read SD cards but not write to them.

Cons: Could not write data to SD cards.

Other Thoughts: I didn't see many other reviewers having this issue, so I probably got a lemon. Oh well, it's only $7.99

4 out of 5 eggsWorth the price

Pros: Cards fit in slots nicely. No need to install unwanted software. Compact and easy to put in pocket. Connect through USB, drag and drop.

Cons: USB cable is short.

Other Thoughts: If the card reader had a USB extension cable accessory or just a longer USB cable this would be a 5 egg.
