This mobile-ready bundle eliminates the need to carry additional USB transfer cables and the typical wait for Bluetooth technology slow file transfers between phones and PCs. It also replaces your SD card adapter, since the microSD/microSDHC card fits directly into the reader. When in use, the microSD/microSDHC Card Reader appears as a drive letter (i.e., E:\) and data transfer is as simple as drag and drop.

Works great--put it in with the contacts up--and ultra minimalist.
I bought a bundle of them to give with photo chip gifts. Keep one in the camera bag.
This came in handy when I wanted to store my music on a USB device and use it with My Pioneer head unit in my vehicle.
The build quality is great, especially for the low price of this unit. I really like the small lanyard type connector at the back of the unit, in case you want to add it to a key ring.
This reader is so small that it will work in virtually any application you could think of!
Regarding the negatives: 1) The sd card is very difficult to remove from the adapter, 2) The sd card faces down so it's totally invisible when the adpater is inserted into the laptop, so you can't see which card it is.
I leave two cards permanently in their respective adapters and I guess I'll mark them with threads of different-coloured cotton or something so the above two issues shouldn't be big ones. If there was an adapter around the same size which had the card facing up and allowed easy removal I'd be willing to spend a dollar or two more, however.
Back to the product, This device requires no windows or mac driver to install it connects directly to the card being used, Used as bootable USB, Sony Media player, Bluray and even my Panasonic Smart TV. All devices have been able to recognize the card installed. If you decide to purchase before you think it doesn't work make sure you inserted the USB the correct way as the port can be installed backwards or upside down once you learn the way the contacts face you won't have a problem. This is most likely the smallest adapter on the market as well as the easiest way to achieve high capacity storage with thumb drive.
Originally skeptical of the durability of these kingston readers since the USB contacts are exposed but thought I would give it a try after one of my elago readers cracked and failed. It was a good decision. These things read and write fast, are very compact, inexpensive, and have lasted thus far (about 3 months use). I keep 3 on a small keyring in my pocket with my keys and they haven't been damaged in any way. I don't take the micro SD cards out very often though, so I cannot say whether doing that more often would decrease the reliability of these readers.
I have two design suggestions (which I don't consider cons, so they won't affect my rating). One, add a small LED light to the end to show read/write activity (I have a old Sony thumb drive and an old Sandisk SD/USB card combo, both as small and thin as this reader and both have an LED light). And two, these should be available in different colors to distinguish between multiple readers more easily.
All in all, a great product.
