Just about adequate
on 5 January 2009
It's terribly cheaply made and like another reviewer said you get a little key-ring-sized lanyard with it, which is presumably to attach the lid to the body but there's no sensible or logical way to do this. The best I could come up with after 15 minutes of tedious fiddling just about works but looks a right mess.
It's made of extremely cheap plastic that looks like it won't stand up to frequent use. It's also quite fat so it won't fit into hard-to-access USB ports or ones that are close to other ports with things plugged into them (this is what the extension cable is for, but that's an extra thing to carry around and/or lose).
Here's a tip for Windows users: before you connect it MAKE SURE that you don't have any drives mapped to E:, F: or G:. I had a drive mapped as G: and just spent half an hour trying to figure out why it couldn't read the Micro SD card - it actually could, but it was trying to map it to a letter that was already in use. After un-mapping G: and removing/reinserting the device the Micro SD card showed up as G: and I was able to read it.
