Laptop 34mm PCMCIA SDHC Card Reader

 

If you read my "Upgrading a Dell Laptop" post then you'd know why i bought this product for.

 

For those who you who didn't , i'll explain.

 

Part the upgrade included replacing the old HDD hard disk with a new SSD hard disk that has significanly lower volume (320 GB in the HDD vs 90 GB in the new SSD).

 

 

 

Since i need a lot of space i purchased a SDHC card that has 64GB and plugged it in the Dell's built in SD card reader.

 

 

 

Time has passed and those 64GBs weren't enough so i decided to but another 64GB SDHC only i had nowhere to plug it in.

 

So i searched and found this on E-Bay:

 

 

 

installation was simple , plug and play.

 

 

 

Cost - 10$

 

 

 

Pros:

 

  1. can be used to extended a laptop's storage volume

  2. can support SDHC cards , and other 24 types of cards

  3. supports bigger storage volume cards

  4. easy installtion

 

Cons:

 

  1. the SD card can be pushed inside the adapter only half way through , apart from being not aesthetic , it presents an opportunity for someone to just extract it out and steal it. Because of this "bulg" that is created because of that , one has to be careful when putting the laptop inside a bag vertically not breaking the card (putting the laptop with the sd card's "bulg" side upwards can fix this problem)
