Reviewer: Anonymous Location: Andersonville, TN Age: 45-54 Experience Level: Power User Owned Product: 1-3 months
Rating: 5/5 Versatile and works well. May 8, 2014 I purchased this as a replacement for my old card reader which was having a hard time mounting my camera cards. I bought this one because it reads many different kinds of cards and was inexpensive. My compact flash card that wasn't mounting well with the old reader mounted quickly. I have been using this reader for over a month now and it has performed flawlessly. I feel this was money well spent.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
