3 out of 5 eggs Understand what you are buying 02/12/2010

This review is from: i-rocks IR-5400-WH USB 2.0 Card Reader

Pros:

Price. Types of cards supported. Looks. Price (yes, twice)

Cons:

As you should judge from the price, this isn't the highest quality product. Just be aware.

Other Thoughts:

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.
