      Value for money card reader

      Card readers aren't the most glamorous items to review, but they deserve their time in the spotlight nevertheless. Today I'm looking at the LogiLink branded device which is compatible with SD, SDHC, and MMC media - it's a product which met a rather unfortunate end... see the penultimate paragraph for details.

      Price + Design & Appearance
      - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
      In terms of the price, the reader is available to buy online for only £1.99 on eBay, although I received mine free with an SD card. Constructed from a semi-transparent grey plastic, the device feels a little flimsy - although it probably won't break unless you encounter the same tragic event that befell me. Both the USB end and the card-receiving end are covered with easy to remove caps - although only the one cap is shown in dooyoo's picture. In terms of looks, this card reader isn't especially pretty, and you'll probably want to look elsewhere if you're searching for a stylish gadget.

      Using the LogiLink
      - - - - - - - - - - - - -
      Compatible with PC and Mac, the reader is fairly small in dimensions - just over the width of a standard SD card, and around twice as long. It should be pointed out that the reader is compatible with USB 2.0 speeds, so there won't be too much waiting around for file transfers (providing your SD card has decent read / write speeds). In my experience of using the Logitech, I have found it to be a perfectly functional and reliable reader. SD cards enter the device smoothly, and a small light illuminated when files are being read.

      Despair
      - - - - - -
      One chilly autumn evening, the card reader was sat in the USB port of my MacBook, happily transferring the data from my camera card, when... I accidentally knocked the laptop off the table. The laptop landed with the card reader hitting the floor first, taking the full weight of the computer. A number of plastic shards flew across the room, nearly impaling the cat who sat watching with an amused smile on her face. It was the end for the card reader, but the fact that it absorbed the computer's weight, probably saved my laptop.

      Final Word
      - - - - - - - - -
      Tales of woe aside, I would recommend the LogiLink Card Reader as cheaply made yet fully functional card reader which offers very good value for money.
