1 out of 5 eggsJust Jettison this Junk

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: This product did read a SIM twice, microSD once, and SD cards several times for two months following its purchase.

Other Thoughts: As someone who is EXTREMELY cautious when handling fragile equipment, it was disappointing but not surprising this device failed. After splitting open the case, a contact pin for the SD card was discovered to be broken and dislodged into the circuit area. After removing it, the other slots remained inoperative. Like so many of the items made today, it is marginally engineered and fabricated to achieve low cost. Specifically, the orientation and thickness of the contact pin design doomed it for inevitable failure. Cell phones, cameras and other devices have designs to preclude this type of failure. I would not object to a higher cost to get a well made reader, but no such external readers appear to be available at the time of this review.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap

Pros: Reads practically every card known to man...

Cons: ...When it works. This do-dad functioned perfectly for about a month until one day it croaked out. I had to hold my mouth just right to get my computer to recognize it. Bump the reader and POOF! "Improper device removal!" Bad solders me thinks.

Other Thoughts: Wish this was of a higher quality. I'd gladly pay double for a unit in this form factor that reads this many cards.

1 out of 5 eggsno value here

Pros: Not ideal but a place to store your extra memory cards.

Cons: Only way to put a large amount of data on a memory card with this device is to do it over night. Slow slow slow.
I did try different card and different size cards with the same results.

Other Thoughts: FYI this device is very slow as in not fast also sluggardly, dilatory, indolent, lathargic and slothful.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: If it worked, would have read SIM cards. I have other problem-free Zonet products.

Cons: It was DOA. Sent in an RMA, had already trashed packaging. NewEgg simply issued me a refund without having to send it back, as it was under $15. Great service from NewEgg, not so good with Zonet.

Other Thoughts: Definately would buy again if I had a hassle-free gurantee that it worked out of the box.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes ots job

Pros: 12 in 1. USB2.0
SD can be inserted into its covered slot and it becomes a flash storage drive.

Cons: can't read SD and MS duo at the same time.

Other Thoughts: It's just another card reader. I bought mainly for its MS duo function. SIM reader is a plus but I have not tried it yet.

1 out of 5 eggsI love wasting my money

Pros: none

Cons: SD reader doesnt work 95% of the time. And in the few times that it did work it managed to corrupt my media while transfering to the hard drive.

Other Thoughts: Obviously they dont test what they put in the market and they dont seem to care.

3 out of 5 eggsI-Rocks rip off

Pros: It does exactly the same thing as the I-Rocks 8200 but has a side card reader on it.

Cons: It is exactly the same size as the IR 8200 so it will not work with some front desktop usb slots. This thing is very wide!!
BUT! I have washed and dried this thing 2 times and it still works.

Other Thoughts: Why make the same product but change the metal key ring attachment to plastic? Oh wait!! Probably so they won't get a lawsuit!
