Customer Reviews

Simply a great device, works with everything, fantastic design, very durable.
Richard D Farina
It took about 3 months for the first one to die, then about 6 months for #2 and finally 2 years later the third one died.
J. Hatfield
I did the mod with drilling a small hole in the cap so that I wont loose it, was really easy to do.

I *love* this thing.

It is tough: It's not made of cheap plastic; has a very substantial feel, no wiggle, no flex.
It is fast enough; my cards seem to be the limiting factor.
It is *tiny*. It fits almost entirely within the USB port. I leave one in my laptop at all times ... when it's in the case, seriously, at all times.
The lanyard/keyring loop hole is on the device, not on the cap, so you won't lose it. The hole is recessed, so it can't break off, unlike the other tiny reader by the same manufacturer (also a very nice device, btw).
The light is bright!
The card fits into the reader "backwards", i.e. you have to remove the reader from the port to get it out. The card is a little difficult to get out, but it's *not* falling out by accident. Think of this device as one to convert a micro SDHC card into a tiny USB flash drive ... if you want to frequently remove the card itself, i.e. to put in your phone, the other reader by the same manufacturer may better suit your tastes.
The cap fits very very snugly ... It's doubtful that it'll be falling off.

Here's the other reader by the same manufacturer: ELAGO Mobile Micro SD & M2 Reader (White) + Sandisk 8GB Microsdhc Memory Card
I have this one, too, and it's every bit as good, just different in terms of its intended purpose: better if you want to remove the card itself frequently.

So, in short: an fantastic reader, fantastic USB drive (supply your own storage), and I have a couple more on the way :)

I can't believe these things aren't flying off the shelves!! Much better than any USB stick. When a USB stick fails it's either the memory chip or the controller, so you end up throwing the whole thing away. With this type of setup if the controller fails you can just remove the memory stick and use another controller or a micro-SD to standard SD adapter to gain access to your data again. Cuts your chances in half of losing files. Just read the other reviews, they all say everything I would say about this little gizmo. Someone mentioned that the blue light doesn't blink when data is written or read to/from the device, this is only partially correct - it actually flashes rapidly. With a class 6 memory stick it flashes VERY rapidly, hard to notice, but it does. I would prefer the light stay off unless it's being accessed. Someone else mentioned the memory stick was hard to get in and out - Well, yeah at first I wasn't sure which way to insert the card, so be careful. Be sure to insert it into the thinner slot face up with the yellow button face up. And push the yellow button to "eject" the card when you need to.

DIED after less than 100 insertions.

Update: I've owned this card reader for 2 years. I use it approximately 4 times a month multiply by 24 months equals 96 insertions.
At first I really liked this card reader, but like many others have experienced, it DOES NOT LAST!!

Earlier review follows: I'm offering Advice on 2 aspects:

(CARD INSERTION: At first, card insertion may be baffling or unclear, so, here goes:
Hold the Elago reader horizontally with the yellow triangle FACING UP.
With your thumbnail, slide the yellow triangle horizontally in and out. Leave it in the OUT position, that is, with MORE yellow showing. Do not inadvertently press on the yellow triangle in the following steps.
Simultaneously in your other hand, hold the micro sd(hc) card with the printing facing up and the shiny gold contacts facing down. (Just like in the first picture.)
Now slide the narrower side of the card(just like in the picture) into the UPPER SLOT of the Elago reader.
Most likely the card will slide most of the way into the Elago reader, but stop at the ridge, the last eighth, where the slightly raised portion is. (If it DOES go all the way in -- good, it's meant to.)
But if it stops at the ridge, and there's still a small section sticking out, you will need to wiggle the card, gently now, and push it ALL THE WAY into the Elago reader. (Later -- pushing down on the yellow triangle will enable you to retrieve your card.)
That's it. You can now plug the Elago reader into your USB slot. If the micro sd(hc) card is not FULLY inserted into the Elago reader, it WON'T BE DETECTED!!
After a few days it will become easier to insert.

Wow, that took longer than I thought!

The Elago drive is the chunkiest of the three, but is is the most flush when plugged into the USB port. It could stay plugged in with little chance of breaking. The plug part is metal and seems quite durable. The blue light remains lite whether there is a microSD card inside or not, and the light does not show activity. However, if the reader is left in the socket, the light goes out in a few seconds after the laptop is closed so that the battery will not drain. Removing the microSD is easy, and the cap gives good protection.

The Kingston is the thinnest and narrowest but about the same length as the Sandisk. It is a metal/plastic combination that is quite pleasing. Since it slips under the USB connection there may be some confusion which way is up, but that really isn't a problem since the contacts are highly visible and are the top. Removal of the microSD is very easy. As with the Elago, the card only inserts one way. The form factor is very nice for slipping into a side pocket of a camera case without a bulge. The reader contacts have no cover when not in use, so I would keep mine in a small plastic envelope.

The Sandisk is a bit bulby in the USB port, but is the best for leaving in while working if the microSD cards are going to be changed. The card slips in easily on the top side. Care should be taken not to put the card in upside down or it is difficult to remove. The reader is all plastic, but since it surrounds the internal USB contacts , the amount of plastic gives it quite a bit of durability.

It is difficult to have a preference - they are all small, and as the table below shows, they all have similar performance. Since I have all three, I will use the Elago with a dedicated microSD when I need extra storage.
