I know there have been some talk recently regarding Poundland, but bought a couple of USB 2.0 SD/MMC/RS MMC memory card readers that I had not seen in store before at £1 each. No drivers with them, but worked in XP straight away (so might be a problem if you are using other operating system).

They have a semi transparent coloured outer case, with two end caps, at one end the memory card can be concealed completely in the reader, so could also be used as a cheap flash drive with one of the cheap 1/2/4 gig cards knocking about.

The same cards can be viewed on ebay, with a low start price, but typical £3 to £5 postage/packing.

great find mate :thumbsup:

Just love Poundland. Keep forgetting to go there, thanks for the reminder

these appear very good value ! only a quid

These are great for using memory cards as UBS sticks. My local store has yellow or blue colours - anyone know of any other colours? I've bought three so far for use by the whole family...

good find !

They're USB 1 so not very fast. You're better off spending another couple of quid and getting a USB 2 one from eBay....but they're fine for the occasional user of course. Same goes for the 4 port USB adapters Poundland sell.

strange Simulacra, as it says USB 2 on the back of the reader, and when you look at the device properties in XP it notes it as a USB 2.0 device, so how have you determined it is USB 1.1?

These are usb 2.0 and data transfer is fast for a cheapy !

Hmm, that's weird. Mine only runs USB1 :?
I'll double check later.

make sure you have it plugged into an 'enhanced' USB port on your PC to ensure the port is running @ USB 2.0 speeds, also does it say USB2.0 on the back of the reader, as it does on mine (six in total) that I have bought from poundland.

PS to Suze, yes these were/are definately £1, but last time I checked they were out of stock (but hopefully these are a stock item), but I did buy a nice 'retractable' USB cable, also £1.

Ah ! Poundland... what would we do without you ?
