Very cool. I would assume the benefit to having this in addition to using the SDHC card slot that's built in, other than even more storage, would be the ability to boot from it. What a neat little reader.

This is a very nice product for our minis. I was curious about the read/write speed as I would also like to boot an extra linux distribution off of this for special occasions. Also, it would be nice to have a pocket full of these with movies on them for itunes as previously mentioned by someone else.

*** Edit ***
A pocket full of micro sd cards that is ... not of the readers. :shock:

Yeah, that is the most reasonable. Seeing as I can get the sandisk 16gb Class 2 micro sd card for 60bucks. That would be the better deal.

Nice find! I just ordered a 2GB one for $20 bucks. It'll probably spend more time in my cellphone though.

You have a cellphone with a USB port?

You won't be able to buy one of these in the US. Buffalo is involved in a lawsuit with SanDisk and won't sell memory in the US until it's resolved. Rats!!

That doesn't mean that someone else can't send them as gifts.
