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
Pros: Works fine with my Memory Stick PRO Duo as well as with various SD and Micro SD cards. I actually like the lime green color and the short cable.
Cons: No Cons really for this IOGEAR Card Reader/Writer.
Other Thoughts: I bought this device since I recently was able to buy three five-year-old Point & Shoots at a farm sale -- a Sony, an Olynpus and a Canon -- all for seven bucks. I needed the Card Reader primarily for the Sony, for which I had to buy the Memory Stick. Not wanting to buy an xD card for the Olympus I ordered the adapter (haven't tried it out yet) needed for the OLympus in order to use a Micro SD card. Happily, the Canon takes SD cards. The Canon unfortunately doesn't show itself in Windows as a device, so a USB cable is of little use. In addition, I had to buy separate batteries and chargers for the three cameras. Can't we have some standardization in cards, chargers and OS interface!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I am in agreement with just about all the positive comments of other reviewers. I write this in order to praise Asus Customer Support. The Eee 1000HA (White) I received had a significant problem with multi-colored vertical lines extending down from the top of the screen. Contacting Asus was an easy matter; virtually no telephone wait time, responsive, courteous service from people speaking excellent English. I received an RMA number and shipped the computer to their Indiana facility (my only expense) and received a replacement computer within six business days of my sending the original.
Cons: Sure, it doesn't have Bluetooth, doesn't have an Optical Drive, doesn't have WiFi 802.11n, doesn't have a great graphics card; but if a buyer needs those things he/she should buy another, more expensive model Netbook or Notebook.
Other Thoughts: An outstanding computer (WinXP, 160GB HDD, 2GB Memory upgrade). I may install Easy Peasy (formerly known as Ubuntu Eee) in a new partition. And finally, I for one would appreciate manufacturers designing a retractable handle for their Netbooks.READ FULL REVIEW
