I had a Samsung digital camera, that I liked very much, however the CD-Rom that you had to run to download the photos, had broken in half. I was at Staples and was looking at digital cameras, as I was ready to replace the whole camera. [...] When I got it home and opened the package, I said, "Oh no"! It had no instructions. I am not familiar with all the new electronic do-dads. Well in less than 5 minutes I had it hooked up, and was downloading my photos. It not only was very reasonable in price, it served the purpose perfectly, and was quite easy to use.

The product is cheaply made and started to fall apart after only 2 months of using it once a day. The screw backed itself out. The product cracked one of my SD cards. After tightening the screw, it became unreliable and would give me a hard time with any SD card I had. Worth spending an extra $15 because you will have to sooner than later.

        Comments about Vivitar RW-50 50-in-1 Card Reader/Writer:

        This is the best card reader I've had so far. It fits perfectly into the USB slot in my computer with no looseness and the card fits into the card slot tightly. I've had trouble in the past with other types of card readers with loose fits. I highly recommend this product.

        My card reader in my desk top failed and as a replacement this was the economical fix. It was truly plug and play. It works every time and is small enough to take with me if needed elsewhere.

        I needed something quick to down load images off of my CF cards. It ran a little slow because i was moving Nikon D800 raw files at 76 megs each. But it did the job over all.

        does what it expected to do

        Comments about Vivitar RW-50 50-in-1 Card Reader/Writer:

        I plugged it in for the first time and downloaded my pictures. It worked very well. The only very minor issue with my computer is that I use a wireless mouse. The card reader cannot therefore be directly plugged into the adjacent USB port because of its size.. The included extension cord for the USB had to be used, without any difficulty. I had an old cloth wireless mouse case, which I found excellent to carry the two necessary parts of the card reader. I am therefore quite happy with the unit.

        This is a versatile product .It covers all the different formats cameras use. I am a free lance photographer so need to be able to handle any format. The reader is easy to use and very well made. Comes with a USB cable to ease downloads.
