I give it a 4 star because Kingston didn't bother to make this update (dated July 2008) publicly available. Tech support needs to give you access to their password protected site in order to download it. Kind of a pain but the installation was easy.
There's a nice dongle USB cord that you plug into your computer, television, etc. The dongle is another defining feature as it allows you to plug the unit in without the fear that it rubbing against something will snap the USB port out.
This is one product that really has no drawbacks, the only thing that may be a drawback is that you'll likely need to use it less and less and everything seems to be saved in the cloud and or streamed to the devices from which we enjoy media. But, if you work with transferring data of any kind, this is a great product to own.
Not sure why the price listed is so high , but at the price I paid at the time ($11) this has been a great backup reader to keep in my collection.
This media reader works great for me. I'm not particularly thrilled with the sliding mechanism, but the performance of the media reader cannot be faulted. Presumably the intent of the slide mechanism is to enable you to slide the media back into the shell during transfer operations to help protect against accidental bumping of the media itself.
It handles just about every type of digital media format you can throw at it and certainly will handle the most common formats with ease and reliability. I use it mostly for Compact Flash, SD, SDHC and microSD.
It's USB2.0 so is relatively speedy and the included extension cable for the attached and very short primary USB cable makes it work with your desktop as easily as with your laptop.
Highly recommended and a terrific bargain. Just make sure it will accept the exact media type you need before purchase so you won't be disappointed. Clearly it doesn't read every form of media on the planet but it reads many... 19 in fact. According to Kensington, it supports: MMCmobile, SD, SDHC, MMC, MMCplus, RS-MMC, MiniSD, miniSDHC, microSD, microSDHC, MMCmicro, CF Type I and II, Microdrive, MemoryStick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick Pro Duo, MemoryStick Micro (M2)
My problem is with the price tag that I just saw on this. When I bought mine 3 years ago, right here on amazon, I only paid $11.54 for it. I just looked at the product page and saw a whopping $124.99 price tag on it. What on earth??? I am sooo glad I bought mine before that giant price increase.
If you can afford it, this is a great card reader. But seriously, $124.99? No way would I have paid that for it.
I have been using this for about a week and I don't have any complains about, this device works great in Windows 7 x64, Windows 7 x86 and Mac OSx Lion, the transfer rate is as fast as the card class allows so I'm happy to solve my issue with a cheap and functional device.
Has a sliding part to hide the short cable I don't know why but it comes with an extension so is not a big deal.
Update: Sept 2013
I've had it almost a year and have had no issues with it. The product has withstood being carelessly dropped (by a cat nudging it off the desk), being thrown haphazardly into a bag in a rush, pulled without being ejected from a computer, brown out power surges and still does what it's meant to do. Love this little guy, glad I purchased it. I mostly use it for my Nikon camera compact flash cards because I have a smart phone now and no need to use the micro SD anymore with Dropbox transferring my pictures with ease.
