Excerpt: I purchased this strictly for SD cards. When it arrived I saw that it also had 2 USB ports, and ports for several other media card formats...an unexpected bonus. The attached USB connector is very short, so using it on a desktop probably means that it will hang in the air...however, it connects very well to my laptop, and the addition of an extra USB port was, for me, an added bonus.
Excerpt: USB cord is only 2" long and if you computer only has rear or front mounted usb ports then you may be forced to just have it dangling there. I have a male/female usb extension cable that alleviates this issue. Reader delivers usb 2.0 bandwidth performance.
Excerpt: This product is worth the money. It worked flawlessly. I use it to transfer photos and videos from my G11 to my Mac. It was an easy plug and play. I have also used, and one of the reasons I purchased this product, the additional USB ports. It's small, lightweight, discrete, and functional. I recommend this little powerhouse.
