5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Reads and write very quick. (As quick as can be expected for USB 2.0, which I'm satisfied with).

Cons: The only con that I've found so far is in using the Mini-SD slot. The instructions are upside down as to the installation, and it doesn't really fit tight in the slot. You'll have to fuss with it to get it to work, but it does work.

Other Thoughts: They could use some glue on the silver tag on the top of the device. When I got mine, it was stuck someplace else on the device. I lightly pulled it off, and placed it where it supposed to be. Come on China... glue is cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal!

Pros: Hooked up to my Windows 7 pc and it was detected in seconds. No drivers to install. Read both my old CF and newer 16GB Hd were detected and viewable. Comes with a handy small pamphlet showing you which way is up when installing cards. Comes with a CD with the same install PDF on it and drivers (which I assume is for XP). Each slot is labeled for the type of card that goes into it.

Cons: While handy, the labeling on each slot is difficult to see in low light.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Works perfectly, solid construction, plug and forget on my Windows 7, install disc included but not needed. Only use CF but insertion and removal just right.

Cons: None. some have noted the gloss finish shows finger prints but not an issue to me.

Other Thoughts: I figured the 5-6 dollar ones would not be substantail, this one certainly is and well worth $14. Free shipping was rapid.

5 out of 5 eggsperfect

Pros: reads everything I throw at it even my elder Micro-SD (w/o adapter). Driver disk does not really contain drivers as my XP and Win7 recognized it from the getgo. the disc contains just the installation of the drive symbols which actually looks nice and won't create any missunderstandings.

Cons: only two: the micro SD almost disappears in the reader and takes somewhat long fingernails to get the card out again.
It also won't read my old SM-cards as they operate on 5V as opposed to the 3,3V the newer cards require.I still can use the transfer from those cards through my DS-7 though.

Other Thoughts: For the price it is a great deal. Don't know about the longevity yet.
What I like is the CF-Card slot having not only a good support for the card,the contacts are also deep in the casing which prevents bending of the pins as I have noticed on other card readers.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Easy Setup

Pros: Plug in, windows recognized the device without trouble. Using with camera SSD cards. Copying a full 2GB Kingston SSD (SD-M02G) sustained between 14MB/s and 18MB/s. Copying a full 1GB SanDisk SSD sustained between 9MB/s and 12MB/s.

Cons: Plastic package cracked during shipping, but the unit was unharmed.

Other Thoughts: OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1
MB: Gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L

I did not install the drivers from the CD. USB cable is 3 feet long.
