      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good priced reader that will do the job. and only misses 5 stars because of the connector

      For years I have been using a basic card reader to get photographs onto the laptop, but when it broke I needed another one quickly. I happened to be shopping in Tesco's that day so decided I would be able to get one there. I was a bit disappointed to find that they only had the Kodak 72 in 1 reader and that was going to be far too big.

      It is about twice the size of the one I had been using, but it is thin and strong. As it was only £9.99 so I thought that there would be no harm getting it as it would cost nearly as much as a much smaller one. My main concern was that it was going to be really difficult to set up but it really was just a case of plugging it into a USB socket and letting it download. I was worried that when I needed to use it on the netbook there would be a problem as it would be registered to another machine, but it just downloaded onto that as well. As I swap between the two it just re registers to the machine I am using.

      I was also a bit concerned about the amount of cards that could be read. There are 6
      openings that accept the cards and I thought it may have been the case that it was going to be an issue of quantity over quality, but that does not appear to be the case. I have only used two openings and both have loaded quickly and there has been no problem downloading the pictures from the phone or camera.

      There are clearly slots that I will never use and I will probably never find out what they are for but the cost of the reader means that I don't regret buying it even if it can be used above and beyond what I will use it for. My only concern is that the part that goes into the laptop is a bit loose although at the moment it is still working well.
