Galaxy Tab 10.1 Connector Kit/Card Reader
on June 9, 2012
I have really enjoyed my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. The only thing that was disappointing about my Tab was the fact that it did not have the native ability to connect a USB device or camera card. Samsumg offers a "kit" that is a little pricey and it is several individual adapters.
Solution: this all-in-one adapter. Fewer "things" to have to keep track of since the obvious purpose of any tablet is size and OTG portability. That means not hauling a pocket of adapters or picking one adapter and finding out you needed the other adapter. This adapter plugs right into the charging port of the tablet.
Complaint: the tiny switch to select between card reader and USB port. It's very tiny and slightly recessed on the side of the adapter making it a bit difficult to switch without something pointed or just the right fingernail. Not a show-stopper though.
Additional thoughts: this has nothing to do directly with this adapter, but I wish someone would make a short (8-9") dongle with the cable coming out the side of its 30-pin proprietary connector. The design of the Galaxy Tab (and iPad, sorry for cussing) is that the connection port on the tablet is at the bottom, which makes it difficult to use in a standing/leaning position (ex: while in a folding/standing case). Of course, someone would complain if the charging port was on the left or right side or on the top. The dongle would allow this or any adapter, even wall or auto charging cables, to be plugged in AND use the tablet propped on its bottom edge. Maybe someone will pick up on this.
GET THIS ADAPTER, IT WORKS GREAT!!!
