Ok - but serious design flaws
on January 2, 2008
This card was recognized by my mobile phone right away, and the added storage capacity is helpful. However, my PC would not recognize the card when it's in the adapter, which isn't helpful in allowing me to transfer files (photos, video, mp3s) between the two, which defeats the purpose of my needing larger storage for extra mp3s and photos.
This card also suffers from very poor user design. The micro sd is tiny as expected, but when it slides into the adapter, it becomes virtually impossible to remove. I'm a small woman, with small hands and fingers, and it took me at least 15 minutes each time to remove it (I kept trying to make sure I wasn't inserting it incorrectly) with great difficulty. Twice I got it out by chance, and the last time I had to find tweezers to pull the thing out. That the adapter and the card itself feels like flimsy plastic isn't helpful as I was afraid I was damaging the card and/or the adapter in the process.
While I'm sure the average user will be able to get the storage they need out of the card, there is much room for improvement in this product to make it one I would highly recommend.
