5 out of 5 eggsGood basic reader

Pros: Does what it is supposed to do with no problem.

The USB cord is permanently attached which is nice since my last reader had one that disconnected so I was always looking for it when I needed to use the reader.

Cons: Could have been a dollar or two cheaper and/or had free shipping, with how small it is, but no biggie.

4 out of 5 eggsinexpensive option

Pros: We had some digital images on an old SmartMedia card and this was an inexpensive and easy option over installing another media reader in CD/DVD drive bay. No need for power adapter since it is USB powered. Reads newer media too.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I wish other buyers wouldn't "review" DOA items as this isn't really useful for shoppers. Yes, Newegg saves money shipping by using the USPS for smaller items like this, but the buyer has to realize that packing an electronic item in a padded envelope and sending it over the better part of the country by the USPS will possibly damage the item. I've purchased many small items like this from Newegg without ever having any problems, but I admit the padded-envelope method of shipping is not ideal except that it keeps shipping costs down---an important consideration for lower-priced items like this one.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It supports more card types than I currently have and USB connection allows use with my desktop or laptop. Arrived three days after I ordered.

Cons: D.O.A. 'Nuff said.

Other Thoughts: Newegg support rocks. No hassle credit. I belive I will try the Transcend for replacement.
