If you have an Apple Computer3/17/2012
This is a must for those who have an Apple Laptop and want to edit your photographs. This allows me to download pictures from my camera to be edited or make slide shows with. A great product that is bullet proof. Extends the use and value of your lapatop.
Wanted a reader for my new sdhc cards and read that this was the fastest one available. I can't confirm if it is the fastest but it IS fast. I was worried that my girlfriend was going to hate it because in the pictures the stand makes it look about the size of a portable hard drive. I was wrong about that! It is about the size of a DAT tape. Sorry, I can't think of a more common item to compare it to, but look at the specs for the actual size. I gave 4 stars for Value because for the what I paid I could get 3 Rosewill readers that are also rated very good but buy.com is charging half what this unit costs at the local office store.
Fast, small, not multimedia4/7/2009
I love the design, very fast and the little tripod is kind of funny. It loads the new SD HC cards (8GB and 16 GB) with not problem. I just wish that it was able to hold micro cards, so don't expect to insert the mini/microSD without an adapter. Overall I love it.
I bought this because I heard it was fast. HDTune rates it at 19MB/s but it seems even faster than that when I copy pictures off of my SD card with it. It has a great design, perfect size (any smaller and I would have trouble finding it). It uses the standed miniUSB connector and comes with the cable. My only complaint is that sometimes it is a little tough to insert the SD card but that is not a big deal.
