Great little reader
on 26 June 2014
When I bought one of my SD cards it came with a USB SD reader. When I buy microSD cards they usually come with an adapter to make them look like SD cards to card readers. Which is all well and good, but all my readers could support was SD and SDHC. As soon as SDXC appeared there was no assurance they would work, and it became a faff looking for the microSD adapter every time I wanted to read the smaller cards.
This device has two slots - one for SD and one for microSD. It's a very neat compact unit, supports SDXC and also supports USB3 (useful for the higher capacity of SDXC cards). Of course it also supports SDHC and presumably regular SD (although I don't have any of the original SD cards to test it).
It does feel a little flimsy at first, but then given how small it is it's hardly surprising, and it's the sort of thing I'd hope anyone would treat with at least a little care. It doesn't feel like it will break if I stare too hard at it, but I can see how putting much pressure on the case could cause problems. It's not a problem for me, it sits in a little pocket of my laptop bag with a few other USB doodads.
