Moshi Cardette Memory Card Reader Review

Today I am checking out the Moshi Cardette memory card reader. If you have a notebook that only has a SD card slot integrated or lacks a memory card reader at all, the Moshi Cardette is the perfect way to get the ability to read memory cards. Read on for all for the details.

Specifications

The Moshi Cardette comes in silver, red, and black colors and works for PC, Mac, and Linux machines. The Moshi Cardette measures 4.3" x 2.4" x 0.65" and is very portable. It has an attached USB cable and sells for $35.

In Use

The Moshi Cardette that I have for review is the silver version with the white cover and it looks like something Apple would bundle with a Mac. This little memory card reader is very cool and has slots for microSD, SD, and CF cards. Most notebooks and netbooks will only have SD card reading capability and if you use a digital camera that stores to CF cards this reader is a must.

The Moshi Cardette has a sliding lid on the top and when you push it back, an attached USB cable that is about three inches long is hidden under the cover. The side of the card reader has a little cut out so you can close the lid and keep the reader plugged into your USB port. If you need more room, the Moshi Cardette also ships with an extension to give you more room from the USB port.

When you have the lid open the labels for the memory card slots are visible. Most people won't need the labels to know what port is for what memory card format. The left side of the Moshi Cardette has a pair of USB ports as well.

That is a very welcome feature considering how few USB ports most notebooks and netbooks have. With the Moshi Cardette, you don't lose a USB port you gain one. That is an important feature if you use a lot of USB peripherals and gadgets on the road.

My computer recognized the Moshi Cardette right away and was ready to read memory cards from it in a few minutes. The device is no faster or slower than my USB card reader that came with a SanDisk SDHC memory card long ago. That isn’t a bad thing at all; most card readers that use a USB port will have very similar performance. The Moshi Cardette works with no fuss at all; you just plug it in and go.

Verdict

Pros

  • Cool attached USB cable
  • Sliding lid
  • Two USB ports

Cons

  • Expensive
 

Conclusion

The Moshi Cardette is a very cool little memory card reader that is perfect for the notebook or netbook user needing CF support.
