    I wondered if this was going to be worth the money even if it was cheap. But surprisingly it works great and downloads to the computer are a breeze. Worth the money and then some--does better than the one I already had but forgot at home.

    Why pay more for another product when this one accomplishes the desired task of reading or writing SD cards? It is easy to use right out of the box and there are no complicated set-ups required.

    This was so much faster and more effecient to use than connecting the camera directly. Easy to download the program.

    Vivatar customer service no help. Does not work with Windows 8, even though I was assured it would, Worked inconsistentlyly on 1 out of 3 Windows XP computers, again I was told it should.

    The recommended software (downloaded from Vivitar) is slower than slow and apparently doesn't save your pictures. The two files I created with it disappeared after I unplugged the reader. It worked fine with another software program.

    I had just returned from a 7 day cruises. I travel to New Orleans, Montego Bay, Jamaica, Grand Cayland, Cayland Islands, Cozumel, Mexico, back to New Orleans than home to Chicago. Well, I had a great time and took lots and lots of pictures, at each ports and on the ship While at
    the pool in Cozumel, MexicoI was getting into a lawn chair and set my purse down and my Vivitar DVR 518 rolled out into the swimming pool.
    I immediately grabbed it out of the water before it sank. Well, my camera didn't work again. All I worry about was my pictures. Well, as soon as, I return home I tried to download the pictures from the camera. Nothing! So, I googles how to get the Vivtar DVR 518 to work. Well, something came up about Vivitar Secure Digital Card Reader/Writer. It stated that it was Easy Plug and Play Installation, Mac & PC Compatible and was Compatible with SD/HC memory cards and it was afforable. I drove to staple and purchase it. I immediately went home and tried it. I was able to download 3 years of pictures from the vivitar DVR 518 by way which is still not working. But I am very happy with this product from vivitar accessories. I will be buying the lastest vivitar digital video recorder to replace my old one next week. I love Staples! Donit forget to purchase your Vivitar Secure Digital Card Reader/Writer it an excellent product and very easy to work with. Just plug it into your USB port and follow the directon. It solved my problem!

    The product works great but I do find it needs room to plug it in because the card slides in on the side.

    Purchased a new computer, but didn't realize that it came without an SD drive. Since I was unable to return the computer, I was very disappointed. When I went to Staples to spend my Ink Recycle Coupon, I wondered if there were a product that plugs into the USB port and reads the SD card. The salesperson showed me the SD Card Reader/Writer section. In comparing the products, I really just wanted something cheap. I purchased this item. I don't know how the more expensive items work, but this product is perfect. It is easy to use. It is small enough to fut in the small storage area of my computer cabinet. I would definitely recommend this items!!!

    I had purchased another brand, it had two cords attached to the SD Card Holder (it did allow for different types of SD Cards). However, after only 2 uses-IT QUIT! So I checked several brands and liked the VIVITAR style the best and it was the same price as the other one I had. I could have gone with the more expensive VIVITAR that would allow me the advantage of using different size SD Cards, but decided I really did not need that feature.

    Good product. I was having problems getting my images to load directly into the PC. Was told by many, including one of your reps, that I really didn't need a card reader. However, since I bought this reader, my images are loading consistently.

    Needed to get a new reader since my old one wouldn't read SDHC cards. This one was a good price and has worked seamlessly on several computers. It is also small enough to tuck in my camera case and take along where ever I need it.
