Update:
After about 11 months of use, the reader pretty much cracked and stopped working. Given that it's such a small device, and on my key chain all the time, this still seems like a reasonable lifespan. It still protected the memory card, so I was able to reuse it when I got a new reader. I regardless, I'm going to continue to recommend this just because of how small it is, but I suppose you just have to be aware that it's more fragile than I initially thought.

I've had this since January, which means that I've been using it for around 6 months. It has worked flawlessly. I keep it on a keychain with other keys and it is always in my pocket, which means that it is subject to some pretty harsh conditions. However, it has held up very well. The black paint (which says kingston) has all worn off, but it has exposed a nice silver-metal color. The body appears to be mostly made out of metal.

Reliability is really based upon which microsd card you choose to use with it. Currently, I have an 8gb card. But if you have an unreliable card in the device, then the device will obviously appear to be malfunctioning even if it is not.

My only advice, and this is based upon personal experience with other products, is to apply a few drops of liquid super glue to the knot at the end of the lanyard. This will prevent it from coming undone and possibly allowing your reader to come free from your keychain.

This is the littlest micro SDHC card reader I've come across. It's very well made. It reads & writes extremely fast. The casing is metal, NOT PLASTIC! Way to go Kingston on a very amazing product.

Yes, as others have surely stated, it's not going to last forever (does anything really?), but if you're looking for one that's built well, is super-compact and minimizes keychain clutter, then this is the one you're looking for. I've tried 4 or 5 different keychain adapters like this from different manufacturers (Dane-Elec, SanDisk, and 2 or 3 Chinese varieties from eBay), and none of them stand up as well as this one. The SanDisk adapter comes in close second, but the Kingston is smaller and more compact, which, despite its smaller size, still allows the micro SD to sit fully flush with the adapter, meaning the card doesn't protrude from the slot (check the photo I took).

Buy two or three of them if you're THAT concerned with durability. At $4 a pop and a two-year warranty, it's not really worth debating over.

The shape of the adapter means that it is possible to insert it into a USB port upside-down, but in a worst-case scenario, that's not going to harm anything. Just unplug it, and re-insert it right-side-up. Money..

Hi

I have three of these. Work great with my 4, 8, and 32Gb micro SD cards. No issues except you have to look at it before you plug it in as it's possible to plug in upside down. I haven't found a USB stick as small as one of these with a micro SD card.

I use one to port stuff too and from work computers and bringing software and firmware files with me to service calls. I also use them for booting live linux distros.

I coloured the "up" sides white with correction fluid and marked them with a black magic marker to identify which SD card is normally in each reader.

Much better than the slightly larger cheap Chinese card reader I bought.

Boy ! this thing is sooooo small that a microSD card is actually 1/2 the length of this USB reader and nearly the same width.

The internal USB hardware is also blazing fast with this microSD card A-Data USA 32 GB Micro SDHC Class 10 Flash Card with SD Adaptor AUSDH32GCL10-RA1 it clocked at 17 MB/s.

Perfect!

I've purchased four of these little card readers on four separate occasions. While they are tiny and yes, as some reviewers have pointed out, made of metal, they are not very durable. All four card readers failed within a few months of purchase. They are no longer recognised by my Linux computer when I plug them in (fails on Windows too). I was able to revive two card readers by washing them with alcohol, but they went on to fail again in a few weeks. I sent one card reader back to Kingston who replaced it for free (although I paid shipping), but the replacement also failed in the end. The microSD cards themselves continue to work just fine in a different card reader.

Bottom line: don't waste your money. These card readers are bound to fail within a few months.

I bought one of these to use as a key-chain flash drive. Basically, this thing is not nearly durable enough to serve such a purpose. It took about 3 months for it to poop out.

It's made up of 3 pieces, it has a plastic case, a metal sleeve, and a circuit board with contacts for the card and for usb. The board is what ended up failing in mine. Best I could tell is that it was a component or board failure and not a contact failure.

I am, however, buying another one. I'm an android phone user so I deal with micro SDHC a lot. This is an incredibly convenient card reader (just don't lose it!)

Neat little device which served me well for about a month and a half. Then I started to get the "device not recognized" message. After another week or so it never was recognized again. The micro SD I purchased with it is functioning perfectly in another adapter. Fortunately I'm not out much, but a brand as respectable as Kingston should probably do better than this.
