Top customer reviews
o You don't need to drag around a USB cable. The PNY comes with an extension cable, but you don't need it; this plugs directly into a computer... and its baby cord squeezes between the other USB plugs.
o This is much more portable than pretty much any other reader I've seen. If you plan to leave your reader on your desk connected to one computer, then the other guys are just fine. But this fits easily into pants or shirt pockets -- and again, there aren't any cords to lug around (and leave behind).
o I haven't had any of the hassle another reviewer mentions.
Well it worked fine for a few weeks than broke. If its plugged in my computer won't boot, and if I boot my computer then plug it in the computer freezes.
So no problem I thought...I'll just RMA it and get another one. Well I go to their site and click on Warranty and the multicard isn't even listed. So I thought I'd email them? Well no email address. Fax them? Nope no fax.
I go and get the original packaging I had with the card and call the tech support number. I must have clicked through 20 voice menu prompts and it seemed like forever (10 minutes probably). I finally get to the point where it tells me to hold for a tech support person...and the hold time was like 40 minutes (this is well before christmas too). It says I can leave voicemail and they will call me back...so I do...and I don't hear back.
So I try to call back today (day after christmas) and the line is busy. Unbelievable. I'll never buy another PNY product again.
I have a SanDisk 12-in-1 reader that broke yesterday. It just stopped working with my Windows XP laptop. So now I am planning to buy this one.
I know PNY makes good stuff.
