    My old card reader would no longer delete the photos on the SD card even when you chose that option on the computer. The Vivatar is doing the job so no more double pics wasting space on my computer. Not to mention time wasted deleting pics from computer and then again from camera.

    Some Canon Powershot models will not allow you to read directly from the camera if your memory card has 1000+ pics. You get an "unable to..." error. I purchased this card reader, popped out the memory card from my camera, and was able to download all my pics to my laptop. VERY EASY!

    This device works perfectly for getting my photos from camera to computer that is lacking a card reader. It is just as fast as using a plain card reader.

    I used the digital card reader to transfer pictures on the sd card to my external hard drive with little to no problems. I transferred over 4,000 pictures so it did take a few hours, but that seemed reasonable given the number of pictures transferred. The product is small for easy transport and light.

    My computer tech guys recommended this because my Dell Laptop card reader failed. It's great and easy and worked so well!

    I found the item easy to use and at a great price. A tip: I have a laptop from 2006 which only handles SD cards up to 2 GB. This USB device will overcome that limit - I tried up to 16 GB SDHC - (secure data high capacity). However, all these cards seem to have only so many insertions in their lives. Leaving it in the adapter may help increase the life of the card.

    This product has not been very good. It will not connect at all to my laptop or my computer at work. At home it constantly disconnects. I've plugged it in to the USB ports on 3 different computers and it is either not detected or the connection goes bad as soon as I plug it in. I have to jiggle it or re-insert it into the USB port several times to get it to work. I thought the problem was my computer at first, but after trying it in 3 computers and still no better results, it is clear that the product itself is not well functional. Very dissappointed.

    I purchased this to use with an older laptop that has an SD card reader built-in but doesn't read the newer SDHC cards. This reader is very well constructed and works perfectly.

    I needed a way to move some pictures from one device to another and this made it easy. I have also lost the cable to connect my camera to my computer, so I have used the card reader.

    It was simple to use. Much faster than using a camera-to-computer cable for transferring images. Also used it while conversing with Mac tech support to search for files on my memory card. Had no problems. Connecting cable is a plus. Gets 4 stars because I haven't used it long enough to rate durability.

    The smaller size of the card reader not only makes it easy to keep in the camera case so I can use it where ever I am, but it barely takes up any space when plugged into the computer. This is the second of the devices I have purchased - my other is for a different camera & card size.
