5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't ask for more

Comments: Newegg did it again. Fast shippment and a great product for a great price. Insalled in 30 secs using Windows XP Pro and was ready to go. I thought it had an xD reader on it but, I must have read it wrong. Oh well. Word to the wise, read stuff before you buy it. But, all in all, it works great and I couldn't ask for more.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: Was unable to get it to mount on Linux 2.4.21, but it worked like a charm with my other box running Windows 2000, on a shuttle motherboard. I would highly recomend this product if being used under a windows OS, And for the price it can't be beat.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: The reader was immediately detected by my Asus A7V133 motherboard and Windows XP. Came with screws for internal installation next to the floppy drive. Good product for a decent price and free shipping. One happy customer.

3 out of 5 eggsWarning if you use Smartmedia

Comments: Yes this reader is cheap and versatile, but I would echo those who have found that their smartmedia cards have become corrupted after using it. I started reading some smartmedia cards with this reader and then mysteriously have gotten CRC and "card error" messages when trying to use those cards in my Olympus C3020Z camera again. Eventually I had to run CHKDSK on those cards to map out a bunch of bad sectors which were found. I am highly suspicious that this reader zapped some of the flash memory with out of spec signals. Beware.

5 out of 5 eggsEXCELLENT Produuct - Works GREAT !!!!

Comments: EXCELLENT product and EXCELLENT price, PLUS FREE shipping ! I bought two and they arrived from NewEgg in California to the Pacific Northwest in just 3 days. This card reader works with systems which have motherboards other than BioStar. Worked with my ECS Elitegroup K7S5A socket A motherboard with no problems.

Another happy camper !!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price, great product, great service!

Comments: This is a steal, expecially when it's backed up by NewEgg's service. I place my ordered at about 10pm on a Thursday and it was delevered the following Monday afternoon. The reader works great plugged into my ECS motherboard with Windows 2000. Thanks NewEgg!

2 out of 5 eggs

Comments: This reader corrupts my smart media card almost every time. When I go to download pictures about 1 in 10 pictures throws an error about failing the "cyclical redundancy check". Many times I have to reformat the card or my Olympus camera thinks it is both full and empty at the same time. I got another card and it worked fine until I put it in this reader, then it too started getting corrupted. Sure it's cheap, but you get what you pay for... I still use it, but I don't trust it for high-value pictures. New Egg did a great job getting it here fast and easy though. :-)

5 out of 5 eggsEXCELLENT VALUE !!

Comments: Plugged into a spare USB port and read it immediately. Using a MSI 745-Ultra m/b with XP Pro SP1a. Added an I, J and K drive. Read and operated perfect with a Crucial 128Mb CF Type I card. Included software was not required to be installed. Using it externally but can be mounted in a 3.5" bay (screws not included.

Excellent value for money. Great job on this one newegg.com.
