    All card readers I've used had caused issues. Doubt I'll ever use one, especially when they're that ugly and cheap lookin'.

    there are lots of them on the market just with the same design.
    i think in this case you get warranty and stuff like that as a plus

    it just seems bland, the el cheapo one i got for $15 locally has E-sata, firewire, and front audio jacks on top of what this one does.

    that's why i did that mean post, i meant that the price comes from scythe instead of the hardware you buy as it is indeed cheap oem stuff

    i just wonder why they used their name for that? desperate?

    looks nice but it looks generic, i have the same model but it just generic thing for about 4$. but its kinda nice solution when you wanna use your mem card, i hope it support usb 3.0, firewirecor any newer port
