Very small, fits in your pocket or camera bag easily.

This works great and if you don't have your sd card adapter it reads the micro sd cards.

When this one dies, I'll buy another one just like it.

Intro:
- 20+ year laptop user. Consultant, travel 'round the US to client locations.
- Checked this product on both laptops and desktops running Windows XP/32 bit operating systems.
- I have a Fujitsu P1610 laptop with a built-in SD card reader. I use 4,8, and 32gb SD cards in this machine. 3+ yr old model, fastest file transfer rates are 3mb/sec through usb cable.
- Bought this product to allow me to download files to the SD card on my Fujitsu and them move them to storage drives without having to wait for slow USB transfer.

Analysis:
1. Folks, this is a great value and a must-have if you use SD/microSD cards. Getting 10-12mb/sec transfer from SD cards using this reader/writer (I think of it as an adapter) in my laptops and desktops using USB2.0 transfer to external hard drives for permanent storage.

2. Construction is solid. Well made, looks like something that would cost $20+.
Same size as a standard 4-8GB USB drive.

3. Operation. Easy and fast. Just slide the SD card into the slot in the side, insert it into a USB drive, and your on your way. No instructions to read.

Summary:
5star product. Surprisingly cheap (mine was $5.99 from Amazon) , very well made. Easy to justify having one in your drawer to use at home or on the go.

We purchased this IOGEAR SD/MicroSD/MMC Card Reader/Writer GFR204SD back in February. Initially it worked out well. It worked as it was supposed to. Now, less than 6 months from the time we bought it, it quit working. It has not been dropped, or abused in anyway, and has only been used by adults. It will not read anything, and only says it needs formatting. My husband is a computer tech, and used this to keep his programs on. He can still access them if he puts the memory card into a computer, but this USB reader will not work. I know it wasn't very expensive, but you would expect it to last 6 months, at least . I probably won't buy from the maker of the reader again. The company that i purchased it from on Amazon, OnSale, sent it out promptly, and did what they were supposed to do. The product just isn't good.

This little guy is convienient, smaller than many thumbdrives, and about 50% faster than my laptop's internal card reader. 16MB/s read instead of 11 reading the same file off the same card (A 16GB SDHC from Transcend). Wish I could have found it in a not-ugly color. Packaging claims that it supports SDXC, but I can't test that. I hope it will be ready if and when I get an SDXC card.

Short version: This product works as described and has allowed me to salvage family relationships. Oh, and photos.

Long version: I must confess that I once had a problem. Quite a lot of them, actually. Fifteen or more SD cards floating around the house, still filled with photos, because I could never find a USB cable to hook up my D40 to the computer. This actually speaks to an even bigger problem I have, which is my husband's tendency to magnetically attract all USB cords within a 500-foot radius, but since I love him, I have to overlook that.

Because of my SD card archives, I made many family members deeply unhappy with me. Where, they wondered, were the lovely photos of this person's birthday or that person's graduation? You know, the ones they had seen on the camera itself during the ritualistic post-event review. I particularly hated this pass-the-camera replay time because it allowed them to remember just how many *other* previous events that still had not been entered into the online photographic family record.

One day, I decided that I needed to stop buying new cards and actually start emptying them, so I went searching for an alternative to the camera's USB cord and discovered this product. It was inexpensive, which was a point in its favor over buying something like the Eye-Fi Pro X2 8 GB Class 6 SDHC Wireless Flash Memory Card EYE-FI-8PC. When it arrived, I had no problems using it on both Windows and Mac operating systems. The transfer speed was fast and I soon had many, many gigs of photos filling up my hard drive, ready to share with others.

This reader won't read SDHC cards for me.. Pretty disappointing because I already had a reader for everything else that worked. Not worth the money to return it, so just stuck with a dud. Not sure if it works for the other card types.

I bought this in hopes it would work with SDXC and it totally does! I have a transcend 64G SDXC card that I use with my Canon T3i and no problems with my mac or my PC. Plus it is super cheap, so you can't go wrong here.

If you do not have embedded card reader in your computer and need to read SD or Micro SD cards this is perfect solution for you. As fast as you card can get, very compact and solid. I use it do download photos from Class 4 SD and videos from Class 10 SD. I get the nearly full rated speed on both cards.
