The MiniDrive is a unique "short" microSD adapter that allows anyone to quickly and easily increase the available storage space in a modern laptop through use of the computer's standard SD card reader. With this adapter, you can take an inexpensive 64GB or 200GB microSD card and add "plug-in-and-forget" storage space to your MacBook. When the MiniDrive is placed into the computer it is discretely hidden. The MiniDrive can be removed by pulling a plastic tab that can be folded away when not in-use. TheMiniDrive Original is 19.5mm long and is our most universal model. It will NOT fit flush however in the MacBook RETINA 13'' (sticks out by 3.5mm) nor MacBook RETINA 15" produced after October 22, 2013 (sticks out by 1.5mm), older versions of this computer are fine. Please see our other product offerings upto 14mm long for these computers for. Please also email us if you have any questions about compatibility.

The quality/look is shoddy, using a clear plastic strip to pull out the card looks pretty hokey to me. I would avoid this thing.
EDIT 3/27/2013. I opened one up and put it under the microscope. It appears quite clear why these devices do not work. The printed circuit board is cut up on one end to make it fit flush with your computer. The cut goes right through the copper plating with small pieces sticking out, possibly providing pathways for short circuits. These things are NOT NEW but rather modified boards that should not be sold as new. Even if the quality you happened to have is good enough to work, would you trust your data, your work to be saved on an SD card in this device? I wouldn't.
What I don't understand is why manufacturers have not started using microSD card slots? This would save a lot of trouble. After all, the mini HDMI socket seems to be standard on phones and laptops now.
All in all though, it was well worth the money!
11/10/13: Just a quick update to pass along another interesting note about this product. It fits PERFECTLY into a Raspberry Pi when using a PiBow case. If you use the Adafuit Micro-USB adaptor board you'll see that the case bows a little when you tighten it down due to the thickness of it. No such problem here. It slides in nicely and the little plastic tab allows for removal if you want to change cards.
03/09/14: Another thing of note. This is NOT meant for frequent swapping around from device to device. It's pretty flimsy. the tiny tines between the contacts will bend really easily. You'd be better off going with a PNY StorEDGE (which works great.
1) Cheaper than Nifty MiniDrive
2) Fits all my Macbooks, Easy to transfer from book to book
3) Does its job and it is hidden from view
Cons(Minus 1 Star) :
1) Nifty MiniDrive looks slightly better
2) A bit flimsy & ugly
I would recommend this product to those who want a cheaper alternative to Nifty Minidrive in order to quickly add storage space.
