The very first item in the product "Technical" description very plainly states that it accepts both Type I and Type II media. That is half true: it only accepts Type I. This product is misrepresented: it does not allow the use of Type II CompactFlash media. Well, it might IF I CUT THE TOP OFF OF IT.
I only need it for a couple uses but for the price it’s great! Update been using this for couple months have put a ton of cards in it.
You’d have to be:
b) inserting cards wrong
to bend pins. As long as you’re careful and don’t slam them in there seems to be a fair deal!
Why complain about a piece of electronic that you paid $6 bucks for?
When (if) this one breaks, I'll buy another one just like it.
To those who broke their card reader = be gentle don't jam the card into it.
This was way better than spending $30 bucks on one from not-so-Best Buy.
[UPDATE: 6 Aug 2011] - I've had this for 3 years now and its still working as if brand new. I use it about once a week. It sits loose in my camera bag when not in use. If it happened to die today, I would still be very please with this card reader.
[UPDATE: 25 Oct 2012] - Still working great. I don't use it as often as I used to. I'd say it gets bimonthly use. My 3 year old got a hold of it and bent on of the prongs. I got a chopstick to it and bent it right back...good as new.

Worked fine when I got it but it is a bad design for a laptop, too easy to break. The cheap plastic case was jetting out from my laptop USB port and I simply leaned on it a bit... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kaspasia
Not very rugged - buy a couple extra for backups. Eventually you'll bend a pin or the case will split open.
Cheap enough so that's not a big deal, though.
Perfectly fine for transferring photos from my 1GB and 4GB CF cards. It's a little slow, but not terribly so.Published 2 months ago by mLo68
Connector pins were loose and ruined 4 compact flash cards. Cost me hundreds of dollars. Don't skimp, get a real card reader.Published 2 months ago by MELLINDA THOMS
Works Amazingly for CF cards and if you take the top casing off or shave it down a little it works with a Microdrive Too!Published 3 months ago by Isaac C
