Kingston MobileLite G2 USB Card Reader with 8GB SDHC Card Review

Usage
Connecting the MobileLite G2 to your computer is very easy, just insert your SD card on one side and retract the other to reveal the USB connection. Then just go ahead and install the drive in an open USB port and you are good to go. When you plug it in, it will come up as 2 drives, one for each card.

As I said the MobileLite does come with an 8GB SDHC card so I decided to so a few tests to see how it would perform. Here are the results.

Not bad, but nothing to write home about as far as speed goes.

Final Thoughts
I really like little gadgets like this, simply because they are useful! If I’m out shooting video or taking pictures I don’t want to have to bust out a large card reader, try to find the USB cord and then plug it into my laptop to check out my photos. With the MobileLite G2 you can have it on your keychain for easy access anytime you want. And remember no looking for that miniUSB cable!

It is a nice plus that Kingston is packaging the MobileLite G2 with SDHC cards. It is available in 4GB ($30), 8GB ($44), 16GB ($80) and 32GB ($139) versions. If you really do not need a SDHC card then you can just get the MobileLite G2 by itself for $11. That is definitely a good deal, especially since Kingston has a 2 year warranty on the G2 itself and a lifetime warranty on the SDHC cards.

It is the holiday season and this would be the perfect stocking stuffer! Overall ThinkComputers gives the Kingston MobileLite G2 USB Card Reader a 10 out of 10 score! It does exactly what it is made to do without any problems!

Pros:
– Great price
– You can get it with a SDHC card
– Protects the USB connector as well as your SD cards
– Easy to use

Cons:
– None!
