5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It reads cards, its cheap. Recognized by Win7 immediately.

Cons: The mounting holes did not line up with my case (NZXT Zero 2 Crafted) which has a tool-less system. The brackets did not fit either, so I had to rig them up so it would slide in.

Other Thoughts: Only took an extra 5 minutes to re-do the brackets so I would definitely recommend this device.

5 out of 5 eggsA must have add-on

Pros: Works great

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Plug it in your system AFTER you've installed the OS. Otherwise your OS may install using drive letter G: instead of C: (c,d,e,f will be reserve for the card reader.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: None - This thing was dead on arrival and even worse, caused problems with Windows.

Cons: Installed in my latest computer build and it was DOA. Windows was taking forever to boot and I couldn't figure out why. Windows couldn't figure out what this drive was so it took forever to boot.

Bought a Sony. worth the money. You can feel the difference in quality and it was recognized by Windows immediatly. The box and instructions were even cheap.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy it - Cheap and doesn't work.
Get what you pay for - I have learned that lesson again.

I will have to pay shipping to send it back so it isn't worth it. In the trash it goes.

2 out of 5 eggsBad for Vista

Pros: good price. looks ok

Cons: would freeze up system while reading any card in vista. could not get a single file opened off an sd or pro duo card. have to wiggle and force contacts to even get a good read

Other Thoughts: avoid for vista owners. seems to be a trend

1 out of 5 eggsHighly dissapointed

Pros: its black and it worked.... for a while

holds doors open.... wait - no its too light for that.

Cons: it started freezing my comp during file transfers, used that same sd card on my laptop and it worked flawlessly. never did get anything successfully transfered.

Other Thoughts: it would have cost more to return it then to get a new one, so, i didn't get one. the laptop works just fine for the hassle.

I still have it, maybe one day I will go out and "relieve some frustrations" on it :D

5 out of 5 eggsIt works, and it fits well. Its cheap!

Pros: This is a simple product that fulfills a need without any frills or expense beyond the basics. It serves its purpose perfectly, and is easy to install. No complaints at all.

Cons: None here

Other Thoughts: If you need a multi-reader, this is a good one.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card reader

Pros: Easy to install, had no issues on my Vista machine, fits perfectly into the 3.5". USB 2.0 so it's fast. Had no problem with 2GB SD cards like others had mentioned everything works fine and it also supports SDHC cards. Has a USB port and looks great too.

Cons: On the top two card slots the cards must be inserted upside down. Also it has two status lights and one of them stays on the entire time. Small cons, mostly just annoyances.

2 out of 5 eggsAvoid this card reader

Pros: Card readers always worked. However the USB port failed in 3 months... read below...

Cons: After 3 months, the USB ports on this product could no longer support read/write operations of more than 3-5 seconds. Any flash drive I used would fail during read/write in this time. (Conversely, using the back USB mobo ports worked perfectly). I suppose I could only speculate that its electronics were failing.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat for XP Bad for Vista

Pros: Great for XP. Works pretty good.

Cons: Bad for Vista. Cards slide in very tight and have to be wiggled around to work.

Other Thoughts: I bought two units a the same time. One for a XP Pro machine and one for a Vista Ultimate machine. It works great in my XP machine. THe Vista machine locks up every time I try to read a card. I swapped the units. Same thing.
