The Amazon Basics 21-in-1 Flash Memory Card reader is in the same ballpark as the Kingston 19-in-1 USB 2.0 Flash Memory Card Reader FCR-HS219/1. Although the Amazon Basics accepts a couple additional form factors, essentially you can view them as similar. The formats that the Amazon Basics will read/write are:

Compact Flash I/II
CF Extreme III
CF Ultra II
Micro Drive (MD)
Magicstor
SD Ultra Card
Mini SD MultiMedia Card (MMC)
MMC 4.0 RS
MMC
RS MMC 4.0
Memory Stick (MS)
Memory Stick Pro (MS PRO)
Memory Stick Duo (MS DUO)
MS Pro MagicGate
MS MagicGate
MS Duo MagicGate
MS Pro Duo
MS Pro Duo MagicGate Memory Stick Select Function
Smart Media Card (SM)
SM RAM Card

Probably the most obvious omission is the ability to accept xD cards (Olympus and Fuji use these in some of their cameras, for instance)

It has worked for me as advertised. The USB 2.0 is fairly quick and although the included USB cable is a bit short, it will probably suffice for most people, particularly if you are using it with a laptop computer.

My biggest concern with this reader is that the Compact Flash Card slot is very shallow which means the pins are very close to the front face of the reader. Consequently a Compact Flash card is not being "guided" very far before the pins begin to connect with the card. The bottom line is that you may inadvertently bend or possibly break a pin if you force a compact flash card into the slot without using some caution.

excellent. well-made. inexpensive. exactly what i was looking for. the marketplace for this kind of object wasn't well served before "amazon basics", which generally provides a well-made product at a reasonable price in areas that are often consumer "minefields". well done, amazon.

I bought this Memory Card Reader to use it with my Canon 7D because my laptop doesn't come with a CompactFlash (CF) memory card reader built in. I take a lot of photos when I travel so I will have to empty out the CF memory cards often. Since I have multiple CF cards, I figure using a memory card reader is probably easier for me than hooking the camera up directly to the laptop. Less messing around with the camera that is actually more expensive than my laptop.

The size of this card reader is nice for one that accepts all of the memory card standards out there. It's very light weight. I haven't measured exactly how fast the card reader's transfer speed is but for me it's fast enough for the job.

The cable that came with it is short but that isn't an issue for me since it's just a card reader and it'll be staying close to the laptop anyways.

Otherwise, the card reader is perfect for me and the price is really competitive. I got this in early January of 2013 and have used it 3 times so far. Reliability is good so far but I'll update this comment if anything else happen.
