SDHC Card Reader USB 2.0 £1.00 at Poundland

Tony Harrison Avatar
8y, 3m agoFound 8 years, 3 months ago
Just wanted to let others know that the SD card readers from Poundland have been updated to support USB 2.0 and SDHC cards. The older version they stocked (which looks almost identical) does not support the SDHC cards but these newer ones do and at only £1 are a steal IMO. Watch out though because when I was in the new and old versions of the reader were all mixed together. The new one can be identified by having the USB 2.0 logo stamped on it in small print. I'll post some pictures in a moment. Works perfectly with my Play.com 4GB SDHC card :-).

New SDHC compatible card reader looks like this with the USB 2.0 logo.....

Old one which is not compatible but still in stock and mixed in with the others looks like this..

Also on the newer readers you can see the connector attached to the pcb where the card gets plugged in is white as opposed to the old version which was black.

And available in a range of different colours too :thumbsup:.

These look exactly like the $3 ones at DealExtreme

I saw those and no doubt they're the same. The ones DealExtreme do for $1.98 look completely identical also but have no mention of SDHC + still cheaper at Poundland by about 9p :thumbsup:.

Yes - but these seem a different design and Tony Harrisons info on the differences between the similar looking non-SDHC readers is very useful. Hot :thumbsup:
#7
I'm sooo gonna get one. How cool and how great is the price.

Heat has been added :-) xx

I thought it had probably been posted already but couldn't find it. Thing is though I already bought one of those about a year ago but like I say the ones from a few months back aren't compatible with SDHC (it caused my comp to crash/freeze when I inserted the SDHC card but SD was fine). I got another today just to test out and see if things had changed and seems they have. I posted pictures and extra details so people would know which are SDHC and which are just SD. This is the cheapest SDHC card reader (guaranteed compatible) I could find so I thought I should post and give others a heads up.

i got the one from dealxtreme, total £1.30. the extra 30p wouldnt even get my car off the drive in terms of petrol cost to get to a shop and buy it!

But there is a Poundland in my local high street - I'm likely to be shopping there way before a parcel from deal extreme would arrive... :)

And how does that compare to the cost of electricity which was needed for you to order it online, not forgetting that you'd probably need a light on too (unless you like sitting in complete darkness) and the cost has now gone up by most of the energy suppliers! Don't forget to take into account the cost of your broadband connection as well as your telephone line (ADSL only) for the time it took to order it.

If your car can't travel more than 10m for 30p then I'd strongly suggest you cease trying to find £1.30 bargains for USB readers and think about buying a more economical car. The saying 'having bigger fish to fry' couldn't be more pertinent.

Seriously, some people are so pedantic! Surely just popping into Poundland the next time you're in town wouldn't actually cost you any more, since you'd be there for another purpose?
#12
Not bad because many older SD card readers will not read SDHC cards! (heat and rep added) :-D

right so you are saying it would be easier and more economical for me to drive a 40 mile roundtrip to my nearest poundland park up in a **** hole town which i never go to then fight the queue of local ****** in a 10 minute till wait. hey surprise surprise the light was already on in my room and hey guess what! i didnt just ring up and get broadband in order to purchase that usb reader i already had it, amazing ay.
i cant believe you actually tried to argue that fact
#14
Hopefully not seen as thread hijacking... If no Poundland nearby you can get a similar one from Poundworld (not too sure on price though lol)

Quite good for a pound then.

The 'old' ones support SDHC, too. I have no trouble reading and writing to my 8 and 16GB SD cards with those. Poundland also stocks that white one from Poundworld.

Yeah but I don't think they support the read/write speads the SDHC ones are capable of.

To travel 10 miles for 30p at £1.10 a litre your car would need to do about 150 mpg. Better buy a moped!

m = metres.

Standard metric measurements :)
#23
you can get these for as little as a penny with free delivery from hong kong on ebay
#24
Just bought one off ebay, from HK, for 11p including delivery. Took a week.

Don't quite know how they do it. Postage must cost more than this?

Lol, there's always one.

You're trying to justify saving 30p and I'm simply stating that the time you spent on your computer meant it had to be switched on as well as any lights. Unless you're in a habit of leaving everything on in your house, the cost of electricity would have dropped dramatically once it was all turned off as you went out. If you're not turning everything off when you do go out, saving the 30p is just pointless.

Like I said, if your car doesn't even to 10 metres for 30p forget about trying to save a few pence on an item and get a more economical car. I can't believe someone is so desperate to save 30p when their car (which you obviously have to use a lot if you're 20 miles away from the local town) is a gas guzzler!!!!
#26
Or buy it off ebay for a penny from Hong Kong (Item 320294841667 for example) - which includes shipping.

A quirk I've discovered on Qc/bay is if you win an item such as this for a penny - you get 4p cashback from Qc!!

oh dear oh dear what do we have here. i can happily afford to run my gas guzzler thanks, do you not fhink it will be easier for me then to sit here and wait for it to pop through my postbox rather than drive the 40 mile round trip to get one, forget cost, how about time and effort? if im on my computer anyway how will it cost me more to order an item exactly? my computer stays on 24/7 its not the point of saving 30p but PLEASE justify to me how driving a 40mile round trip to a town i never go to and an hour and a half of my time is not worth 30p?get off the xbox and into the real world

Chances are you won't win it for a penny though, and it's not SDHC capable like the OP

Ahh - sorry - thats where my techinical expertise goes out the proverbial, sorry in this case :oops:

Chances are that you can win for a penny as I've eight of these I've won! (lost on about twice this) Won't pay the mortgage, but gets me a few things I can resell back on eBay (as a UK seller) plus earn a few pennies for the priviledge and a free feedback :thumbsup:

i've had 2 from ebay and only paid a penny for each.
there's so many being sold its easy to get one for a penny, just put a penny bid on about 6 different listings. some you'll get outbid on and others you'll get for a penny.

Bought one of these 2.0 ones a few weeks back, works perfect!

I've come across these on eBay and there's a chance but not guaranteed you can get them for a penny free postage too, but the big downfall is that they come from Hong Kong! That's a no-no for me, especially based on past experience for a number of reasons.

Picked one of these up last week. Works a treat, easily recognised and fast data transfer.

The 'old' ones support SDHC, too. I have no trouble reading and writing to my 8 and 16GB SD cards with those. Poundland also stocks that white one from Poundworld.
Well the green one I took the photo of is one of the older ones I got in Poundland a while back and it refuses to recognize my SDHC card (MMC and standard SD cards work fine). Looking at the internals the pcb has different components and the layout is not the same as the one I bought today. No doubt they're from the same Chinese manufacturer and they've updated the design and just integrated it into Poundlands stock at some point. The packaging makes no mention of SDHC support at all either. At least now people can tell for sure which reader is compatible with their card.

So this deal isn't for you then, no biggy. Not everyone is as unfortunate to live 20 miles away from their local Poundland though. I bet plenty of people work or go food shopping in a town with a Poundland in it anyway. Some might even be lucky enough to live in a town with a Poundland!, wow image that!, they could just walk! :-D.

:thumbsup: i voted this hot, my arguement wasnt against this actual deal just the fact that it was more convenient for me to spend an extra 30p which one person couldnt comprehend
#36
This is a good bye, I know we all go into pound shops and think what a load of tat but why you always find your way to the electrical section, hmmm HaHa
#37
Not sure if this is a silly question or not, but is this a reader only? Does it write to SD card also?

Thanks
#38
It's a reader and a writer and the old ones will handle SDHC. At this price I have 3 or 4 knocking around. (one in my camera bag, one in my desktop, one in my laptop bag and one at work).

Adopting the 30p skinflint agruement, I worked out it was cheaper to own more than one becasue of the cost of shoe leather walking around the house, turning lights on and off etc. trying to find where I'd last left it. I think the payback ran into decades though...... ;-):whistling:
#39
Does anyone know if they stock Micro SD card readers please?

Quality Save are selling the same one for 99p and they also have computer mouse for 99p
