I throw loads of these cheap readers away as they break or "come broken". These days I only buy good quality ones, Lexar, sandisk, etc.
In this case its a Sony. Probably same electronics but hopefully better quality control and a bargain price.
No brainer for those that have multiple types of memory/flash cards!
Some other good deals on http://www.mymemory.co.uk,
worth looking around there.
With dimensions of 86 x 50 x 15.7mm (width x depth x height), the MRW62E-S2 promises to be very convenient to ferry around. It has a USB 2.0 interface, and no additional power is required, which makes it one of the easiest card readers to use, according to Sony.
The MRW62E-S2 is capable of reading different types of cards, including: SD, SDHC, Micro SD, Micro SDHC, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick PRO Duo, Memory Stick Micro, CompactFlash, Microdrive, SmartMedia, xD-Picture Card, mini SD Card, Multi Media Card, and RS-MMC.
