Summary: over all it will do you fine, i just wasnt ready for it to take up both usb ports on the computer.
Pros: My computer XP recognized the drive and it read my cards just fine. its a nice size unit.
Cons: The usb cord between the unit and the computer turned out to be rather different. it requires that you use 2 usb ports on the computer and the cord is only about 18 inches long. since it has to go in front of the computer it takes up both usb slots so having the 3 slots on the reader only nets you one more slot.
Excerpt: I essentially use it as a "docking station" when I swap an old Inspiron 8100 and an old Lenovo T42 at my desk. I have no problems on USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 ports on the machines. I keep a spare 8GB SDHC flash card plugged in so that it can double as a flash drive. It's inexpensive, and I'm glad that I got it.
Pros: Durable Dock, Excellent Interface, Fast Transfer, Lightweight, Reliable
Excerpt: I used this card reader to transfer 8 gigs of photos from my Sandisk 8 gig compact flash card which was used in a Canon 5D Mark II. I have never seen the files transferred that fast! It saved allot of my time with 6 full cards to transfer.
Pros: Durable Dock, Fast Transfer, Lightweight, Reliable
