Rosewill RCR-IM5001 USB2.0 75 in 1 internal Card Reader w/ 3 ports USB2.0 Hub / eSATA port / Extra silver face plate / Molex Power
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: metal enclosure

Cons: Very very slow.

Other Thoughts: I don't see how this thing can possibly be USB2.0 It is incredibly slow.

I inserted a micro sd card, and it disappeared into the slot. I need tweezers to get it out.

Save yourself a lot of frustration and stay away from this thing.

ZOTAC ZT-70601-10M G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fairly cheap.
Small size.

Cons: I could not get my Linux PCs to boot with this card installed.

Other Thoughts: This was kind of an impulse buy. I should have researched it a bit more, but I got in a hurry after I updated my Ubuntu install and found out that my old video card had been orphaned. The amount of work required to get the old card going looked daunting. I figured, I should just get with the times, and get a newer card.

When this card arrived, I installed it, updated my drivers and rebooted. Everything looked fine, until a second reboot. The system got stuck on the loading screen and would go no further. I thought I had a blown card, so I pulled it, and dropped in another Linux PC (Mint 16, this time). Mint got stuck loading on this PC, too. A little bit of Googling indicates that Linux might have a problem with the 750ti. OK, over to my trusty Windows 7 gaming PC. The Windows machine boots and runs fine with this card. So, the gaming machine got to keep the card, and I installed it's old 550ti in my desktop. It needed that upgrade anyway.

Toshiba FlashAir II 16GB Wireless SD Memory Card Model PFW016U-1BCW - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Convenient way to get your pix off your camera.
It worked basic mode right out of the box, but you'll want more (see other thoughts below)

Cons: Configuration was a challenge. The software I needed to get this working the way I wanted was on Toshiba's Japan website (FlashAir v.2.02).

Other Thoughts: I got the card to connect to my iPad and iPhone with the app from the app store. But there's more to this card than what those apps offer.

I had to do a fair amount of Googling and reading to find out that I needed the FlashAir 2 config program. Toshiba's USA site only had V1.14 and that wouldn't recognize my card.

With FlashAir 2 I was able to connect the card to my route. From there I can use my other computer's web browser to browse the card's content. Granted the web browser is not the fastest way to get your pictures down, though. It is pretty handy if you want to share photos right away, or to give your friends photos without requiring them to download an app that they'll only use one time.
