I've recently changed PCs from one with an integrated card reader to one without, so I needed a stand-alone card reader that would connect by USB. I was attracted to this by the variety of cards it would read - more than I'll ever use - and, of course, the low price.

It comes with a USB cable to connect to a PC and is quite a small device, about the size of a box of matches. The plastic it's made of seems cheap and brittle, but I guess this is one way the price has been kept down. The card slots aren't indicated, so there's an element of guesswork as to which slot you should use. The largest slot, which accepts compact flash cards, needs some care in use as the pins are made of a rather soft metal; if you try and force the card in you run the risk of bending one or more pins. So far I've been able to bend them back into shape using a ballpoint pen when this has happened, but I know that eventually one will break and when it does, that'll be the end of that.

But that's the end of the bad news. I've used it with compact flash, SD and micro SD cards and all have - with the exception of the compact flash slot mentioned earlier - worked well, with files being transferred quickly and accurately, so this is a device that does what it's supposed to do at a bargain basement price, comes with the cable you need to use it and was delivered promptly in appropriate packaging. Recommended if you're not forceful when using it; but if you're at all heavy-handed and your principal use will be of the compact flash slot, you might want to look elsewhere.

What is does and for the price, it's a good quality item and with a very quick response time once it downloaded it's software, milliseconds in real time, and compared to the one it replaced, its really fast. Bearing in mind its just a card reader, there is not much to say about it other than I have put three different format and size cards in so far and each was read and images downloaded quite quick. Recommended, more so considering the price:)

Works well. Red lights comes on to confirm that it's connected and another one flashes when the installed memory card is being accessed. Still feels a little flimsy but not as bad as one might expect for the price. The memory cards fit well.

Neat looking unit that accommodates a large variety of cards. For the price, excellent.

Sadly I should have read the other reviews before buying but although the esecure reader appears to read SD cards without a problem it refuses to read/recognise the CF cards...sadly I only needed it to read CF cards for use by the local photography group during meetings. For the money I can't be bothered to return it and will consign it to the bin. FYI the pins for the CF reader are all perfectly straight and not bent or missing. Should the seller read this feel free to send me a replacement thats tested and working with CF cards and I'll modify my comments accordingly.Since I only paid £3.97 with free Prime postage it's not worth the fuel to drive to the post office to return it!
