Performance

It may be an oxymoron, but this card was very, very difficult to install; now installed it's very easy to use. The directions that come with this small and unexpectedly inexpensive device are atrocious. I had a very difficult time not only understanding the 2-page directions, but finding the company's web site to get additional drivers to install this thing. I'm a computer programmer by trade, and it frustrated ME! Don't expect them to include a disk with driver files on it, because you won't get it. I eventually got so frustrated trying to install this thing, I had my boyfriend do it. After we finally got it installed, it has worked like a charm since. I pop the card into my laptop to transfer files to my PDA, or to transfer pictures easily from my digital camera to my laptop. It sets itself up like a drive, so you can easily drag and drop files. Overall, I have no complaints. It's not fragile, so don't worry about protecting it from anything but sharp blows and the elements. Mine lives in a pocket in my camera bag, without a protective cover (it doesn't come with that, either). It's faster than USB, and if you have a serial PDA or camera, this is a necessary device! I can't believe it was so cheap, but maybe that's because of all the blood, sweat and tears that have to go into the installation. ;)

I had exactly the opposite experience as the other reviewer: card was immediately recognized by my laptop, as was the compact flash card when inserted. Plug and Play as it is supposed to be...
