However, read the description of this particular item carefully. What you get is a what they say here - a card in an anti-static envelope. The card that I got did not look new - the contacts had use marks on it. I am keeping it because I did not notice this detail in the description, because I got a great price, because I needed to use it right after getting it, and because it seems to work fine. But it isn't new - not that the description said anything about it being so.
I have never experienced a failure of any kind with this product.
I like 'em.

Shooting in high-quality RAW format, capacity is now up to 326 images (or more), meaning less chance of running out of image storage -- usually at the worst possible moment -- when you're paying more attention to the scene before you rather than the image count-down indicator. And if you shoot in .jpg format, you now have a virtual warehouse for your images. The free USB reader is a bonus, allowing for quick, reliable image transfers to your hard drive, Mac or Win.
The downside? As of June, 2007, these cards are still relatively expensive and in scarce supply. But, based upon past SD card history, it should become a non-issue over the coming months. Still, if you want speed, reliability AND capacity for your new digital camera NOW, this card is worth the price.
The card reader is smaller than my old one I loved, what a plus. It takes the SDHC without a hitch. It comes with a groovy holder that protects the reader and card. This one is definitely a photographer's friend.
I wholeheartedly recommend this combo and I would like to thank everyone that has written reviews on Amazon because I come here first.
I ordered two cards. They were each packaged in the standard plastic shell case for an SD card and then inside a static bag, but without retail packaging. They appear to be new and unused. (I suspect that these discount sellers obtain these by breaking up bundled product sets, like a digital camera kit which includes the camera, a battery, a charger, and a memory card, and selling the individual pieces for a discount price, but I don't really know for sure).
Note: These cards are available from several different sellers on Amazon, this review is for the seller BlueProton.
Comparison between CF and SDHC
I had to buy a 2 GB CF card at RadioShack for $80 while I was on Vacation in July. I bought this SDHC for $63, which includes a reader.
This card is much faster than the CF by far. It takes me half the time or more to download photos. Whereas my pictures on my Canon G6 ranged from 1 to 3 MB, the pictures from my Canon G9 range from 3 to 5 MB.
I never take the card out of the camera. I simply hook my camera up to the computer via a USB cord. It saves wear and tear on the card. I don't really use that much battery power from the camera.
Sadly the MicroMate card reader is too wide to fit in some USB ports (including those on the front panel of my dell desktop and the side panel of my dell laptop).
If the RescuePro software crashes on startup, be sure to go into Windows Data Execution Prevention options and opt-out the rescuepro.exe to resolve the crash.
