This review is from: elago Mobile Nano II USB 2.0 microSDHC Flash Memory Card Reader -Works up to 32GB- (Black) (Personal Computers)
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.

I bought 2 of these and both failed with limited use, have you had any issues with them failing over time?

Just noticed your comment today!

No issues at all! I bought 3 of them - all are working perfectly to this day (almost 2 years now). I don't use them daily, but at least 3-5 times a week. Sorry to hear you had issues with them.

Can't argue with your logic, I have a few of these here and there, but I only paid .50 to 1.00 for the USB adapters or they come free with some cards...$10 seems a little steep.

I bought them here when they were on sale for $3 each! Ten dollars IS too high a price, too many good reviews I guess! The WHITE ones are $4.99 on the Elago website, as of this posting!

Ronald: That may be so, but with tax & shipping they cost you $10.73 off their website. It's no great secret that Amazon bundles the shipping into their warehouse-shipped products.

It would seem the cheaper generic variety from eBay could potentially be identical, but why wait 6 weeks to ship from hongkong just to save a few bucks and possibly be disappointed and zero warranty.

At least if this product fails Amazon ships you a new one, right?
