1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Easy setup - works directly with Windows

Cons: Hangs if you open Explorer and click on an empty slot - no way to tell which slot is for which card, so you take your 1/4 chance and likely wait

Fails to read even 2GB cards! No way to update driver.

Other Thoughts: There must be another inexpensive card reader that works...

2 out of 5 eggsNot good, has issues.

Pros: Good price. Worked as basic card reader for awhile.

Cons: Finally quit-has terrible mini USB connection (too sunken into plastic casing.) Does NOT read any card larger than 1 GB-will actually lock PC and reader up. Flaky connection. Would connect as USB 1.1 and sometimes would not recognize at all.

Other Thoughts: If you're poor and desparate (like me), then it's a decent reader to get you by. But if you use it regularly and with different cards (again, like me), then just pony up a few more bucks and buy a better reader.

1 out of 5 eggsGWC

Pros: Works for some cards.

Cons: 2 gb max-come on. Let's get real here folks. What good is MAX that small these days.

Other Thoughts: Waste of money considering the limitations it has on the size cards it will read. Don't even bother with this piece of junk.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap price - that's it.

Cons: Doesn't work with 2 GB SD cards. It is NOT hot spappable nor is it "Plug and Play".

Do NOT buy this so-called "reader".

1 out of 5 eggsDidn't work for me

Pros: Price - if it works for you it's probably a good deal

Cons: Failed to read SD/MMC cards on 3 separate PC's (2 HP's and 1 Dell). I purchased 3 readers. Two tested bad, didn't open the third. All cards read fine in other readers. Some kind of compatibility problem or a bad batch I guess.

5 out of 5 eggs6-in-1 Cards Outstanding Value!

Pros: I routinely purchase media card readers for our company laptops locally. We've had very mixed reviews with some not reading certain cards, or needing special drivers etc. They all cost more than this one too.

I was a little skeptical due to the low price, but I purchased six of these as a sample to see how good they are. THEY WORKED FLAWLESSLY! Just stuck them in the side of Dell Laptops and put a card in and everything worked with no special settings necessary.

Ordering more today...

Cons: Nothing that I can think of

Other Thoughts: Much easier so far than even "Name Brand" Sandisk brand to install.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk even for the price

Pros: Price

Cons: Came in, doesn't work at all. This thing has more glitches and problems than microsoft windows vista. I would advise all buyers to continue on and buy a card reader that costs more than a pack of cigarettes.

Other Thoughts: The idea of returning this item to Newegg in order to get a replacement is completely ridiculous considering it would cost less just to order a new one.
