PROS: SD and CF slots work fine directly connected to a Raspberry Pi.
All slots work great in Windows 7.
CONS: MicroSD card slot does not work on the Raspberry Pi (have not tried on a powered USB hub)
The USB cable that came with this is very short, May be a benefit to some but I just do not see it, A cable that was a foot or two would be much better at least for me. I do not see placing this as close to ANY USB port as is limited by the supplied cord.
CONS: Wish the USB cable that is with this was a little longer
Service was prompt and on line chat helped guide me in the right direction before purchase.
PROS: Price, ease of use
PROS: Small, does not take up a lot of room in the camera or computer bag
CONS: Nothing so far
PROS: It works!
It is cheap!
Only tested with Micro SD card.
PROS: Excellent product
