Simplicity is a good thing...
on June 20, 2013
There's not much to say about this product except that it does EXACTLY what its intended to do and it does it well.
I was looking for a way to store SD cards that was space conscious, simple, and secure. I found just that. Many of the products out there for SD card storage offer nice storage, but too often either take up too much room, or are hard to gets cards in and out of. (Big fingers make it that much worse)
This case when folded in half still takes up a surprisingly small amount of space, and if the intent is something thin, then simply unfold it and it's barely more than 1/4" thick. Folded, it slides easily into a pocket.
My other most common complaint is the ease of getting your cards in and out. Thin vinyl sleeves are great, but offer little in the way of protection and can be "fiddly" sliding cards in and out. It seems like every card I want, doesn't want to slide out of the sleeve, and the ones I don't want, fall out on their own. This case offers hard shell protection, and when you open ONE compartment, you get one card - easy in, easy out. I don't see it as a negative, but the compartments are big enough that the cards do "rattle around" slightly when stored - I cured this by simply sticking a small sticky felt pad (very thin) in the bottom of each compartment. This did two things, stopped the cards from moving in the case at all, and offered a bit of shock absorption for the cards... can't hurt. :)
As a photographer, the content of my SD Cards is valuable and this case makes sense... inexpensive, protective, easily stored/carried, and easy card access.
I left the rating at 5 stars based on how well this item is working for me today - if that changes, I will amend my review.
Along those lines, I can't address the durability of the plastic over time and how temperature may play a role, but...
it's doing exactly what I need and I plan on getting at least one more.
