If you need one of these adapters, buy it. :D
The adapter looks like a regular SD card with the contacts just like an SD card. There is a slot on the bottom edge of the adapter to insert the micro sd card. It took me several trials and errors before I learned that the card (contacts down like the contacts on the adapter) must be pushed in all the way so that it does not protrude from the bottom edge of the adapter. Only then will the sd card register on your computer.
Be aware that it takes a little pressure to push the card all the way into the adapter and it takes some effort to pull it out. To pull it out you must grip it (there is a cut out on face of adapter) with the nails of two fingers and pull. I must admit that I was concerned that when I first tried to remove the sd card and it would not come out that I started contemplating destroying the adapter to remove the card, but with continued tugging it did. The sd card is so tiny that when pushed all the way into the adapter there is not much exposed of the card that you can grip with your finger nails.
The adapter works and the price is good. Just be aware if you are using an adapter for the first time like I was that you will have some anxious moments.
Mine works, but I had to take a pocketknife to it.
I received the item in an uncushioned envelope, with the card adapter in a nice plastic case.
Upon removing it from the case, I attempted to insert my micro SD card.
It stopped halfway.
I pushed gently, but firmly, and it wasn't budging.
Now, I imagine this is where the Deal-hunting grannies who would buy this item would give up and demand a refund. But it was 90 cents. So, I took it apart by putting a pocketknife into the slot and lifting gently, (and it came apart with such ease, only a simple friction socket holding it together, very cheap.) and saw my problem. The contacts were on the TOP of the card. So, I took a pocketknife, and gently pried them into an angle where, upon insertion of the card, would push them down a little bit, putting them in contact with the Micro SD's Contacts, and holding it in place. It then worked perfectly. 5 minutes of confusion, with 30 seconds of actual work produced a functional end product.
The adapter itself is a knockoff, at least in my opinion. Genuine Sandisk Micro SD to SD adapters SAY SO on the adapter itself. This one just says "adapter". But, to be fair, it's just small contacts that lead to big contacts, so it's not exactly rocket science.
So, A rundown.
Does it work? Yes, if you're willing to pry it apart and fix what the factory workers didn't.
Is it durable? Probably not after you have to pry it open.
Am I satisfied with the product? It does what I need it to do, but I have no faith in whomever produced it.
Would I buy from this seller again? No, not unless I was sure whatever I was buying could be restored to working order by myself.Read more ›

ORIGINAL REVIEW: I bought it to be able to directly upload pictures from the micro SD card in my smart phone to my iMac computer. The first one did nothing when inserted in my iMac with the smart phone card in it. So I ordered a second one, and it worked!. For under $3 (with free shipping from Amazon Prime), I got a working adapter.
Judging from all the other reviewers who had a similar experience, I would guess that this is a bad production lot. It would cost the manufacturer too much to test them individually, so they just decided to sell them off at a distressed price. You might want to order 2 or even 3, to improve your chances of getting a good one--and you might end up with a working spare.
Before ordering my second one, I tried testing the first defective unit to see what was wrong. The circuit board pops right out when you pry apart the two pieces of the plastic cover. As the circuit consists of nothing but large contacts routed to small contacts, I used my audio continuity tester to see what's going on. I found that the large contacts 3 and 4 (counting from the right) seemed to be shorted together. No easy way to fix it though. For $1.40 just threw it out and got another.

Deceptive - in the original picture on the site, it shows a Micro SD card. This does not include the Micro SD card - Only the adapter for a Micro SD. Read morePublished 1 month ago by D. Doyle
It works great! The microSD card fit perfectly in the slot, and adapter was very strong/rigid unlike other microSD adapters I've purchased.Published 1 month ago by EngineerOpinion
