1.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't fit! 1 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
I hate to be the first person to write a negative review about a product, but I think it's deserved in this case.

The USB connector on this product simply doesn't fit into either of the two USB ports on my MacBook Pro, nor does it fit into the USB port on my Samsung Blu-ray player, even after pushing it harder than I perhaps should have. Comparing this product's USB connector to those on other devices I own reveals the reason it doesn't fit is because it's too wide.

I don't know why no-one else has reported this problem, but I've owned tens of other USB devices over the years and have never encountered another USB connector that doesn't fit in a standard USB port!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very small and useful! 13 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought this adapter to increase the storage of a MacBook Air (13''), since it is the smallest available on It works flawlessly with a 32Gb class 10 microSD, and is about the same depth as the MagSafe 2 plug. The only drawback is the LED, which is quite bright (and red), and somewhat distracting.

5.0 out of 5 stars More robust than most 26 Sep 2011
By Orville
While being compact, this is far more robust than most. An added bonus is that the memory card is completely enclosed when not in PC's USB socket - ideal for rattling around on a keyring in the pocket.

5.0 out of 5 stars good product 5 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Extremely compact as shown in the photos, i needed a small reader for a tablet and this one does the job perfectly. I had some troubles inserting the micro sd the first few times i used the device because the slot is tight but then i noticed the sd goes in smoothly if you incline it slightly

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised 13 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
A lot more solidly made than I expected for the price. Slotted in a 16Gb card and stuck it into my Mac Mini. Lion picked it up, as did Linux, XP and Server 2008 all running under VMWare Fusion.

So apparently wide compatibility. Speed seems subjectively decent - neither so slow or so fast that I can be bothered to benchmark it.

Pretty hard to justify dedicated USB thumbdrives at this price.

With the proliferation of Micro SD devices this card reader is really handy. I carry it with my key ring all the time.

Very slow writing/reading and after two months it doesn't work anymore. Corrupted my microsd card. It would be very nice if it works cos is very small. Real shame!

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and cheap
... but it works okay, taking a 32Gb MicroSD card with no problem. Using it in my car hi-fi, and cheap enough to buy a spare in case I clumsily break it.

It's miles too big to fit in any USB socket, and I tried a dozen of them. Total waste of time.

5.0 out of 5 stars first class tiny card holder
This card holder arrived promptly and fits my Samsung 32gb card perfectly. It is small enough and quite robustly made. A first class product at a very fine price.
