Flimsy cable, otherwise a solid product.
I have the IOGEAR-branded version of this product, but aside from the plastic they're identical. The lack of an activity LED doesn't bother me, but it takes some getting used to. The cable is pretty thin, flimsy stuff, and right out of the package was showing some signs of stress. Buy.com's photo of the Aluratek model shows the same, minor crinkling near the connector. I don't expect this unit to be around for many years, because of this. Having a native MicroSD slot sure is nice, so there's no juggling with adapters. And unlike most other SD/SDHC readers I've tried, this one has never falsely claimed that my card was write-protected. Despite the less-than-durable cable, this is my favorite reader because it Just Works.
