5 out of 5 eggsBETTER THAN USB READERS!!!

Pros: Just plug it to the usb and let windows set it up. It's so easy. Then, insert the card and open files. That's it. NEVER HAVE TO FEAR OF ANY USB DAMAGE LIKE BUMPING TO A USB READER BECAUSE IS A CABLE CONNECTION NOT A CHIP!

Cons: You can only read one card at a time.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: Great versatility and durability. Has lasted longer than any other multicard reader I've had.

Cons: The combined SD/miniSD slot is a little delicate. You have to be careful inserting miniSD cards or they can catch on and bend pins. Had to repair mine once.

1 out of 5 eggsSlow

Pros: It works.

Cons: I have used this several times since i got it and all I can say is it's slow. My old card reader would transfer at 20-25 MB/sec and all i get with this one is 4-5 MB/sec if I'm lucky. I am using a brand new high end computer so I don't think that is the issue.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for me

Pros: I use it with my HTPC to view picture files and copy them to my home network server. Worked fine with xD and assorted SDHC cards. Has slot for miniSDHC so don't need adapter. Recognized immediately by Win 7 Home Premium 64 through USB hub. No problem with USB cord.

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not read SDHC cards

Pros: Worked for CF cards

Cons: Does not read SDHC cards. The PC recognizes the drives but not the card when one is inserted. This is the second and last IOGEAR device I'll purchase. The internal IOGEAR reader I purchased has the same problem.

Other Thoughts: I thought IOGear was a decent brand. I'm no longer a fan.
The OS is Vista Home Premium.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for choosing IOGEAR and we apologize for your experience. The GFR281 does work with SDHC cards however we cannot test or guarantee it will work with all cards on the market. Some of these cards have a high speed transfer rate to work with today’s digital SLR cameras that may not be compatible with this card reader. Once again, thank you for choosing IOGEAR.
