I have been using this with a 32GB card as my main USB stick for almost 2 years, and it's still working perfectly. Pretty much nuff said, but here's some more words.

Pros:
1. It's like, really small
2. "Oh my goodness James, it's so tiny!" says everyone in the room when I bust out my USB stick
3. Has been on my keys, bashed around, etc, for 2 years, and shows no sign of dying
4. It looks kind of cool when the paint wears off over time. See my customer image.
5. Did I mention it's small?
6. It costs like 3 quid.

Cons
1. It's kinda fiddly to get the card in and out. If you want a stationary reader where you can switch your cards in and out all the time, look elsewhere. But the size of it demonstrates that this really isn't what it was designed for anyway.
2. When you write large files to it, it gets HOT. Like, hotter than the sun. This one time, I nearly burned myself. Dunno how long Lynn put it in the microwave for, but yeah (feels like around 8 minutes). Then again, at least it's acting as a heatsink for a card and not insulating it like a similar reader made out of plastic. Google says MicroSDs are supposed to get hot, so yeah.
3. People think I'm under-compensating for something. Also it looks kinda silly next to my Galax-Gigantic Note II which gets the opposite comments.

I was a little bit sceptical about this product. How can something that small be any good??
The truth is:

It's tiny, it's well made and it's worth buying.

MicroSD card sits in it securely and you can attach it to your keys to make sure you will always have some electronic storage with you if you need it.
Reading and writing speeds are OK, and I had no problems with this device being discovered on any Mac or PC with Windows XP/7 or Linux.

That's it. There is nothing more to it. It reads microSD cards really well and if you are looking for a really decent card reader, you've just found one!

Great little adapter, that's shorter than the Crucial Gizmo Jr. as well as offering much more storage with a suitable 32Gb Micro SD card. Holds the card well enough for it not to slide out on it's own. The cord does make it more difficult to get the card in and out if you loop it the wrong side, so don't loop it the wrong side :) I couldn't design this better if I tried. I'm buying a few more!

Bought this for the novelty of having a very tiny memory stick, also I have many microSD cards as I use them with my contour cam. So thought this would be a useful investment. The first one I bought died on me after a few weeks. Thinking I may of just been unlucky and it's fairly cheap to replace I bought a second. The second one also died on me after a few weeks.

My computer does tend to run at high temperatures, so it may have frazzled the reader, also I use hi speed cards (class 6 and above) this may be worth mentioning. All in all I'd love the product if it didn't continually break when I use it, but it's fairly cheap and half works so a solid 3 stars from me.

I realise it seems to work for every other person reviewing the product, but here's my 2 cents.

The comment(s) about not being able to fit a card in with the cord attached are utter nonsense. It works perfectly, and I'm very happy with my purchase.

Exactly what I hoped it would be.

Only unfortunate thing is, if I ask someone to slot it in, they'll have no idea which way to put it in!
Other than that works great and hasn't let me down!

As said, it is tiny and seems to have a good quality.
There is one downside tought - It requires the full 500mA power supply, which should not be necessary.
This means you can't use it on a passive USB hub, e.g. my keyboard.
I always have to put it on the back of my computer to actually work.
