Summary: My USB transfer from my digital camera stopped working and since the online consensus seemed to be 'buy a card reader' I found this one for a great price so ordered one. I was a little aprehensive about the base as the pictures online of tripod stand looked like it might take up a lot of space but this reader and stand are TINY!
Pros: Excellent Interface, Fast Transfer, Lightweight, Long Cable, Reliable
Summary: I bought this to replace a card reader that we got with our first digital camera five years ago. From the pictures on the website, I had pictured something larger. When I took it out of the box, it was only about 2 inches tall! It just caught me off guard. Once I plugged it in and began using it, I stopped thinking about the size. It transferred pictures to the computer with lightning speed.
