Not as advertised

jim m., Newegg

  • Summary: I was looking for portable card readers for Xd cards. Did a search, this one seemed to be the best for the price. Xd cards do not fit in the designated slot.
  • Pros: Portable- will fit into your camera case easily or travel with you to share pictures.
  • Cons: Xd cards won't fit in the card slot.

No Good - no good at all...

Julian C., Newegg
12 April 2006
  • Summary: I ordered the first, and it didn't work on any of the four computers I tested it on (reading 2 different XD picture cards). I RMA'd it, recieved the second one and it does the exact same thing - fails reading anything from an XD picture card. Both were brand new.
  • Pros: None - I thought it might be a good value, but there's no value in a product that does not work at all.
  • Cons: None of them will read XD picture cards on any computer I've tested. They either hang up or Windows will halt the operation because an I/O error has occured.

Pretty good

Dimitri A., Newegg

  • Summary: Only used CF and SD cards in it, as they are the only type I have or need.
  • Pros: Seems to work well -- have tried it under Windows and Debian Linux and, well, you plug in the adapter, put in your card, and it works beautifullly.
  • Cons: Plastic shell seems kind of flimsy, but then again, what were you expecting? The thing says that it supports all of these various types, but as you can well imagine, you need an adapter to convert some of the newer, mini cards to their larger predecessor, which is not included.
