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.

Does not work with my Surface Pro tablet

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

It works flawlessly on my Window 8.1 desktop computer. However it is not recognized by my Microsoft Surface Pro running Windows 8.1 Pro. The LED indicator never lights and the OS never recognizes that the device has been connected.

works fine; limited/odd choice in store

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

I'd give 5 stars except for the marketing of this in the store AND on line. I thought there would be quite a bit of selection in the store, and was surprised to find really only two. the one I got reads 50 form factors (types) of flash memory card. I guess that's one for every state, or something. the other one, that was quite a bit cheaper, didn't read some of the most common types. I can't say which one because, on line, it DOESN"T SAY. so i ended up spending about 25 dollars getting this one. now i see on the web that for a buck or two more, i could've gotten 72-in-one. is it sillier to have a 50 in one or a 72 in one? I don't know, but they ought to offer the bigger one in the store if they're only going to have 2. What if i have one of 22 form factors that my 50 in one won't read? i guess i'll have to spend a little more to get the bigger one! this is a little tongue in cheek, but not entirely. Figuring out what to get ought to be, as they say "So easy!" but it's not.

I have found this a great tool for both my cell sd card and my camera sd car. So much better to have one rather then two. Just slipping either card into it and plugging it into my desk top slot. I am tech. challenged so much easier. And the employees at the Rochester NH staples store were very helpful with all my questions and helped me find what was just right for me.

Exactly what I expected. No more, no less. Does what it's supposed to do. Pkg is always hard to open up without a sharp instrument.

I bought this item specifically because my present computer does not accept the CF from my favorite camera. The Vivitar RW works perfectly and required a minimum of set up.
