The review today is the fifth and penultimate product of the six who came in last packet of DealExtreme, and is USB Card Reader 2.0 SDHC (SDHC USB 2.0 Card Reader). Although I had an old SD card reader, even USB 1.1 and a built-in reader printer, I found it interesting that reader, By providing higher speed than the reading Ethernet printer, as well as support the SDHC cards, I have not yet because not have where to use, but that is already standard in the new cameras that one day I will have. And the price of only 2,99 US dollar is unbeatable.
Let's look at some pictures now. First, the front pack, showing the inscription “SDHC High-speed Card Reader”, the “USB 2.0” and curiously no maker's mark:
The back of the package shows the supported card: SD, SDHC, MMC, MMC II, RS MMC, Ultra II SD, Extreme SD, Extreme III SD, mini SD, MMC micro, T-Flash Card, I do not know what are all these variations, but the important thing is that he read my traditional SDs, not tested any SDHC. In product characteristics is also part of the support for Windows 98SE, ME, 2000, XP and Vista, including support ReadyBoost Vista. On my Windows Vista x64 it worked perfectly without drivers, detected as a generic SD reader. Below the support registration to Mac OS9.0 or higher, further emphasized in support SDHC, and in class 6 speed. And again no maker's mark:
And here the reader, that came in the same color on the site, the top cover covers the USB plug and the low covers the slot cards, it registrations “SDHC Card Reader” and “150X”. I do not know what is the basis speed that is used to measure these 150X, in other words, 150 times what? Assuming it to be the same as CD-ROM drives, this value is 150 kB/s, in which case this reader was approximately 125X in my tests, using an SD card Sandisk Ultra II and Sandra tests, seems to me an excellent brand, perhaps limited by card speed, probably an SDHC would be faster:
And here the reader without the cap that protects the USB plug and the slot uncovered cards and an SD card inserted:
And here the reader with the card inside and closed the cap:
And the bottom of the card reader, with translucent plastic is possible to observe the circuit:
