    What is the best MicroSDHC USB reader?

    I'm looking for one that...
    1. Is small
    2. Doesn't require much force to remove the MicroSDHC card
    3. Won't fry my MicroSDHC card
    4. Has decent performance

    I really like the aluminum-housed MicroSD reader that came with my R4. The aluminum-housed MicroSDHC reader that came with my black CycloDS Evo, OTOH, is way too thick. I thought the MicroSDHC readers similar to the ones used by Kingston would be good, but the MicroSD cards were impossible to remove.

    Anyone have a good suggestion/link?

    I got one with my NeoFlash TTDS very similar to this and it is wonderful.

    That's the one included with Kingston's 2GB MicroSDs. I thought they sucked because the MicroSD card was nearly impossible to remove. I have two of those things. When I tried to trim some of the plastic around one of them (for a more relaxed fit), the whole thing came apart.

    Plus, they're not MicroSDHC.

    I bought one of the Kingston ones mentioned above, and I really like it, small and fast.

    All this aside, none of these are MicroSDHC compatible.

    The ones that come with sandisk micro SDHC cards seem good, mine's been working fine so far.

    I use kingston mobile lite sd sdhc card reader it have only sd sdhc option (but i use adapter for microsd) but it is quite small and very very fast , faster than normal card reader for 1 gb cards. Like 100 mb file is copying in less than a minute.

    My favorite is the old blue freebie that everybody complained about.

    It's the only one I have that allows me to plug in a different card without having to reinsert the reader to recognize it.

    I use the blue one too, it started off very tight and unpleasant but after a couple of uses it became loose and somewhat easier to use. I noticed it sratches the microSD just a tiny bit.
