4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap build but does the job just fine, 22 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 7dayshop USB Mini "All In 1" Universal Multi Card Reader and Writer - Smoke Black - All SD Cards incl. SDHC, SDXC also Micro SDHC, Compact flash, Memorystick, XD etc. (Electronics)
I was looking for a cheap memory card reader to keep in a backpack for the odd occasion I needed a card reader as machines rarely have compact flash card readers and not always SD card readers either. The reader itself is small and light making it ideal for this purpose and it reads xD, SD, Memory stick and compact flash with the CF slot being particularly useful as I CF support is reducing as fewer cameras now support it. For data transfer there is a standard mini-USB port which is again fine for my use as I usually have a mini-USB cable on me although some people may prefer the slightly additional bulk of a builtin USB cable/plug which some readers offer. As you'd expect from the price the plastic feels pretty cheap and the USB port is a bit stiff but neither are an issue, although my reader is looking a bit worse for wear after sitting at the bottom of a backpack for a while it's still working fine. I only use it for CF and SDHC cards (up to 16GB) but no issues reading either, it has no problem reading a particular SDHC card which the onboard readers on two of my laptops refuse to read.

The only issue I have with the reader is that there's no micro SD slot, I realise you can use an adapter but I never seem to have one on me as I don't need one that often. I have a micro SD card reader as part of another card reader which I find useful because while my phone can be mounted to access its micro SD card directly, it's only as an MTP device (works fine with some OS's, not so well with others) and speed isn't that great so being able to read/write directly to the card is handy. Definitely more useful than the xD card slot this reader offers as xD cards have been dead for some time now.
