I paid a few quid more but have one of these on my desk that I use regularly, def worth £1.
#2
there's a sign up in poundland that says these are USB 1.1, even though the packaging says 2.0

anyone confirm if these are actually 2.0?
#3
ah My one is USB 2.0, but Gembird branded

If poundland is USB 1.1 edition it will work fine in a USB 2 slot on your computer but not the other way around, hence the crashing and typical windows peripherals messages

The packaging states 2.0 AND the card reader is imprinted with 2.0 & "HI SPEED" ,i have the blue one, i think there was another type....so make sure you get the blue guys :thumbsup:

I had this one before, put my SD card in from my camera, and it made the card unusable, both on the PC and in the camera. Lost all the photos. Avoid, and spend a bit more on a better product if you're using it with important data.
#6
AVOID - CHEAP IS NOT ALWAYS CHEERFUl...

I also have had exactly the same problem as others listed here - inserted card and lost all my photos - e.g. it wiped my memory card - I am not an IT numpty incidentally!

Wonder if you can sue Poundland!?

Buy at your peril - certainly don't insert any cards with beloved photos on
#7
i'm getting the idea that Signalex products may not be all that after all, even for a £1, tried a few of their products inc. Ipod / iphone items all to end up the same....in the bin.

we've got this one and it keeps crashing the pc, causing fatal errors , wont stay connected, they are ok if you only want to use them once in a while but if you use it a lot id pay a bit more for a better one.

im running them on xp in a 1.1 usb slot and pc says for a faster connection connect to a usb 2.0 so i guess there 2.0. on the sd and micro sd they sometimes struggle on 16gb cards and freeze pc not very often though im running loads of stuff plus up to 3 other card readers, on vista when you boot if they plugged in already they not recognised unplug and replug in and they are ok16gb produo with 2x8gb cards are fine not tried any other media

if you do use this dont use any other card reader it wants sole use of the memory.

Does it screw up your typing too?
#9
I have one, it's awful and refuses to read a lot of media. A pound is a good deal but not when it could be used to buy something more useful....like a chocolate kettle....
#10
I have this two in the clear colour variant and it wont read Memory Stick Pro DUO cards like it says it does. Suppose for a quid you can't moan but if you're gonna be using this all the time I suggest you spend a little more on one for the quality.
#11
Bought a SIGNALEX USB extensiom lead from Poundland last week.
Useless-it kept causing USB errors.
Binned:x
#12
Electronics are at poundland for a reason - they're ****. Buy a card reader for £1 and it'll last a few weeks if you're lucky. Buy one for £5-£10 and it'll last for years. The £10 card reader I bought in early '04 (cheap at the time) has been around the world with me, transferred over 15,000 files and still works like a charm day in, day out.

Voted cold for false economy. We've got enough cheap electronics filling landfills as it is.
#13
I wouldn't buy cheap card readers. There's a higher chance of them damage the card, not just the data inside them but also the contacts.
#14
voted hot? its clear all the posh lot have been voting this hot because the have never been to poundland. They never work (trust me I had about 2 different kinds, including this one) and they look alot cheaper than the image. For a couple of quid more you can get a working one online.
#15
crap

avoid

not worth even £1

COLD BRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Too right.

No experience with this particular model, but I've lost a few cards due to corruption by other cheap no-name readers over the years, and the data gone for good.

Once you lose some irreplaceable photos, then you may think that spending a bit more on a reader is worthwhile after all.

Good point. They also have an SD card reader, which works really well for me. But getting a multi-card reader for a pound is probably asking a bit too much.
#18
I've got 2 of these (the clear variety) and I've had no problem whatsoever reading SD and MS M2. I can confirm (based on transfer speeds) that they're definitely USB2. Maybe I've been lucky but my experience has been nothing but good.
#19
Got a Tevion reader with 3 port usb 2.0 hub, 5 volt 2 amp power supply and usb lead for £3.99 from Aldi last week.

Reads/writes a lot more card types including XD, CF and Smartmedia

I spent a few hundred pounds on my card reader and it came with a free PC built around it :thumbsup:

These are absolutely terrible. My friend bought one bout 3 weeks back n it messed up his micro sd card he then had to format it... might aswell spend the xtra n get a good on from amazon... cold
#24
I bought one of these, about a year ago, as it was an Ebuyer value product.

It work for about 9 months (but I always plugged it in, used it, and then unplugged it).
It eventually died because I left plugged it into the PC and when I came back to the PC after getting distracted for an hour, I smelt something nast. The card reader had got so hot it burnt itsself out. The smell of the metled plastic and chips was horrible.

Avoid - to save both your flash cards, PC (and a potentially a fire?)

Hi!
I bought a couple of these for me and my son a month or so ago. They work fine for us although the lead it comes with is a bit short - so I'm using a longer one.

Bought one of these from HK via ebay for about a £1. Worked a couple of times then keeled over and died.

Why despite all the negative comments (and I think everyone is in agreement) are people voting this hot...

I think we have about eight people saying the same, a further 3 who have binned theirs (including me - I stamped on it first) and one user whose card reader nearly set on fire.... nobody is saying anything good and therefore I'm tempted to click expire to prevent anyone else buying this rubbish and then losing some important photos (which v.nearly happened to me).

MODS - can you expire this deal on responsiblity grounds?
#29
Worth a quid, but thats all

I bought one of these from 7dayshop and although it works it was very fragile

But like I say, worth a quid if you can find one

voted hot :thumbsup:
