This review is from: i-rocks IR-5400-WH USB 2.0 Card Reader
Price. Types of cards supported. Looks. Price (yes, twice)
As you should judge from the price, this isn't the highest quality product. Just be aware.
My full history with this product: Bought because I wanted to transfer pictures (jpg and RAW) quicker from DSLR's CF card. Worked as expected.
After ~1 month it just died, RMA process went well and received a new product. When I first opened the packaging, the top half of the plastic housing fell off. The CF card slot worked, but the SD slot did not. This wasn't such a bad thing since I use it mainly for CF cards.
To the company's credit, they saw my comment on this and sent me a new one. I haven't opened that one, but I at least do have a spare now. The RMA'd one has continued to work (CF slot) for ~1yr.
Moral of the story: Realize that you are buying this product because it is inexpensive. Be prepared for what that might entail. The company at least tries to help.
