Simple to use fast & reliable,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Integral USB 2.0 Single Slot SD Reader (Personal Computers)If you have SD cards or Micro SD cards with Adaptors this is the card reader to buy. It's well made, tough and takes high capacity SDHC cards. I've used it with Sandisk, Kingston, Cannon and Transcend cards up to 32GB with no problems.
As soon as you insert the card reader Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 all instantly recognise it and transfer speeds are fast. At £3.46 including delivery you can't go wrong.
Get one of these now and you won't have to waste any more time with slow USB cables that require the installation of new software for each different device you use.
Note: For cards of 64GB and over you will need an SDXC card reader such as the one in this link.

Your comment about slow USB cables makes no sense at all. This is a usb cable, ok so it's a stick instead but it transfers at the same speed. a USB connection is a USB connection, no matter what form it takes. You also don't need to install different software for every device you plug in, just use mass storage mode, select whatever you plug in as a hard drive from the list and copy the files. It's exactly the same thing.

I thought that was what was meant at first but then I realized that the comment refers to plugging, for instance, your camera directly into the pc via a usb cable. This entails the installation of drivers, and the transfer rate is invariably much lower than a card reader (even when the device has a mass storage mode).

It only takes Micro SD cards if you have an adaptor.

Mr. Jp Vincent says:
Although you might not notice it, because all USB connectors are backwards compatible, USB actually comes in at least 4 different speeds. Whether using your camera is faster or slower than this device depends on your camera...

It's also worth noting that many cameras don't have a mass storage mode. I have two compacts I use when not lugging my pro gear around, both high end Canon compacts, and neither offer a mass storage mode for Windows or OS X...
