3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Can read/write on nearly all media cart types (only tested SD and XD cards and they all worked as expected).
Can use 5 cards at the same time with one reader.
Speeds are great (but only tested on USB 2 so far).

Cons: Cheap casing. Mine came scratched on both sides new in the blister pack.

Other Thoughts: Good reader bu I wish it was more robust and durable. The features are there but to cut on the price the casing quality had to be cut I guess...

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Replacement

Pros: Performs as advertised. Speed seems quite good, although I cannot measure it directly. It is particularly useful to me that more than one card can be plugged in at a time. Tech support was also easy to contact, knowledgeable, and responsive (see below).

Cons: A 2' cord is barely long enough for my application. One of my several SD cards has a problem with the write protect being switched unless I am very careful with insertion. This may be specific to the particular brand of SD card. That the switch may move is mentioned in the documentation.

Other Thoughts: I contacted Tech support due to the above mentioned SD card problem. I was given instructions for a method of insertion, which worked; and also offered the option of replacing my unit with an RC531 unit (identical except for finish) and which the tech confirmed had a slightly "looser" fit.

4 out of 5 eggsworks without issue

Pros: plugged into usb3 port, immediately recognized as usb 3 drives by Win 7. Read 64gb SDXC no problem.

Cons: one egg off for packing a CDROM invisibly so that you almost destroy it opening the package (only provideds funky drive icons for win explorer) and warning by manufacturer that inserting a SD card may cause the lock button to be set.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Choice for the Money

Pros: Small and lightweight. Easily fits in my laptop bag. The length of the USB cable is 24 inches.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I purchased this item to be used with my laptop. In this situation you don't need a very long USB cable. I could care less about read/write speed or transfer rate. As long as it reads and writes I'm a happy camper.
