The problem is that Buffalo is not allowed (due to a patent lawsuit) to sell any flash-memory related products in the US. As far as I know, these are only available in Japan. I vacationed there last month and picked up three, which went to various members here - I have no more. User bollywood also got some and resold them.

I am not aware of a Japanese retailer that is willing to ship these to the US, but one never knows. I'll point out that, in addition to the packages combining the adapter with a SDMicro card, they also offer packages with the adapter alone, which is what I bought. Given that the memory cards alone are cheaper in the US than in Japan, that would be the preferable way to go if you can find them.

I ordered one from eBay. It was shipped out on Tuesday from Hong Kong. I paid a total of $18.90 for it. Since my address is an APO address, it may take a few weeks to arrive, but I can provide some feedback on it when it arrives if desired.

I'm basically out of the usb reader/card combos. A few pending sales and that's it.

I will consider, if there is enough interest, placing a request again to my friend in Japan. I can request the usd readers/adapters without the micro sd cards.

It usually takes 7-10 days or bit longer if the readers are not locally available.

I know there is a site that specializes in bidding for you on eBay Japan auctions, getting the item and then shipping it to the US. Ralinka or something like that, perhaps they could help folks get these. I have no idea what sort of fees they charge for their services.

Brando has a similar one available for pre-order. However, they only seem to have white.

Thanks for the link. Not shipping until June.

My friend from Japan will be sending me 5 black and 2 white of the Buffalo usb reader/adapter (without the micro sd card). I should be getting them in 10 days. 2 of the black ones have been reserved. So I will have the remaining 3 black and 2 white available. $15 shipped in US.

Update: ALL SOLD OUT.

I replied to everyone who sent pms. If you didn't receive one, please pm me again. With the changes to the forum, I don't know if you received them or not. Thanks.
