This review is from: IOGEAR GFR209 USB 2.0 Support microSD / microSDHC / T-Flash, SD/SDHC, mini SD, MMC, MMC Plus, RS-MMC, MMC Mobile, MS, MS Pro, MS Duo, MS Pro Duo, 12-in-1 Pocket Card Reader/Writer
Over the past four years, it has read the SD and MS cards (and a couple of their variants) that I've put into it. Rather than constantly plugging and unplugging my various devices with their differing storage media into my computer, I simply keep this reader attached to my USB hub permanently. The short 2-inch cord reduces clutter, and keeps the reader within view and easy reach.
Due to the short 2-inch cord, it may be inconvenient for those whose only available USB port is in the back of a desktop tower.
The color scheme might be a cosmetic issue for some people. It seems to be the company's corporate colors, and it's probably meant to give the small device a high-enough visibility for quick use. I don't like the lime, but I don't care enough to be upset about it.
