MobileLite G4 USB 3.0 Card Reader: Portable, sleek metallic design
USB 3.0 multi-function card reader
Backwards-compatible with USB 2.0
DESIGN AND QUALITY: The MobileLite G4 feels solid, sleek, lightweight and very durable. In comparison to form factor were most USB card readers are built in plastic, the MobileLite G4 were formed into metal (feels like aluminum metal) and a bit of plastic where the SD/microSD card slots located. This gives strong built and trust worthy that the device will last longer than any card readers out there. Although the card reader is compact and can be easily inserted to USB slots, the device does extend on both sides in which, it could block other USB ports next to it. The small holes on the corners can be used as a key chain attachment or neck strap hole. You might notice while the card reader is in operation, there is no activity light indicator, it would be great if they push a little bit to have it but then again, no biggie deal about it.
