I am obsessed with not losing pictures that I have taken on my smartphone of my family. I already have tons of pictures but I don’t want to lose any of them. I have discovered that my phone memory just isn’t enough and have had to replace my micro SD card so that I have more memory on it.
Now because the micro SD is no longer in my phone it is a complete pain to have to replace the one in my phone with another one to access the pictures. My husband also has tons of micro SD cards from previous phones as he gets a new phone what seems like every few months so he bought this card reader so that he could access all the things on his micro SD cards without all the hassle.
The card reader is by Hama and he said he bought it for just under £4 and I have used it a few times as it just makes things easier. It plugs into the USB port on my Chromebook and it can read both micro and full sized SD cards. I have only used it for reading micro SD cards because my Chromebook has a port for reading full size SD cards so I don’t need it for that.
It is very easy to use as I just needed to plug it into my USB port and it showed up straight away. What really impressed me about this card reader though was just how fast it was at copying and transferring files. I have used something similar before and it took forever to do anything but this is so quick and it takes almost no time at all to transfer the files between the SD card and the computer.
For under a fiver this is a great thing to have. With most phones now having micro SD’s people will end up having more lying about and it can be difficult to access what is on them without being a bit of a hassle but this card reader just makes it a piece of cake and to top it off it is really fast too.
