It was very easy to use.

Insert the card gently and do not apply pressure to avoid bending the pins.

This is a very cheaply made device. I found the wire connectors to be easily bent with normal use. High risk you may damage CF cards with use. Definitely do not recommend this device. I would give it no stars if I could.

This was great for the 3 times I got to use it before it broke. Don't buy it. The price reflects the quality.

If you happen to ever use any Type II CompactFlash media, you can forget reading all the other reviews of this product: this is the only one you'll need to read in order to make an informed decision. In fact, not a single other review (at the time of this writing) even mentions what I describe here. The title tells the whole story, really, but if you need prose here it is:

The very first item in the product "Technical" description very plainly states that it accepts both Type I and Type II media. That is half true: it only accepts Type I. This product is misrepresented: it does not allow the use of Type II CompactFlash media. Well, it might IF I CUT THE TOP OFF OF IT.

This little gadget is great! It's been working well and I've had it for a few weeks. It's size and form factor are what attracted me to this model. It's the size of a USB flash memory stick from '04 and it's pretty quick about movin' my data. My speed tests show that both of my CF cards read at about 11.5 MB/s and write at 10.5 MB/s which is as fast as the cards will operate as far as I know. So, no throughput bottle neck for normal old cheapy cards like mine. All that mumbo-jumbo to say for $6 bucks it's way worth it.

If you want damaged CF cards then by all means use this card reader. I am so disappointed because it damaged my new CF card and I wasn't able to get my photos from it. Ugh!!

I got this for free when I bought my DSLR, so I guess I can't complain too much. I had this read for 5 month and it worked great until I dropped it. Now it's dead so next time i'll be getting something more reliable.

This card reader does what it is supposed to do. I use this with my Mac and treat it just like any other computer accessory. It goes in my laptop bag when not in use. I've had it for 1 year now and it's solid.

Why complain about a piece of electronic that you paid $6 bucks for?

When (if) this one breaks, I'll buy another one just like it.

To those who broke their card reader = be gentle don't jam the card into it.

This was way better than spending $30 bucks on one from not-so-Best Buy.

[UPDATE: 6 Aug 2011] - I've had this for 3 years now and its still working as if brand new. I use it about once a week. It sits loose in my camera bag when not in use. If it happened to die today, I would still be very please with this card reader.

[UPDATE: 25 Oct 2012] - Still working great. I don't use it as often as I used to. I'd say it gets bimonthly use. My 3 year old got a hold of it and bent on of the prongs. I got a chopstick to it and bent it right back...good as new.
