Acer’s 5 In 1 Card Reader?

You’ll see it on their laptop specifications. They have a 5 in 1 card reader. I haven’t used that one before, until last Saturday. And what did I discover? It’s not a 5-in-1 card reader for God’s sake! It’s only an SD card reader and for you to be able to read the other types of cards which it claims it can read, you need an adaptor! An adaptor that converts your miniSD or microSD card or whatever card you have into an SD card so that you can use their 5-in-1 card reader.

I actually sink into a situation similar to this guy after inserting a Memory Stick Pro Duo in it! I just inserted it, because it claims to be a 5-in-1 card reader. Only then I realized that it will not fit exactly, and the memory got stuck inside the slot. Used some pins and around 30 minutes of my time and a liter of perspiration to finally take it out. Ang hirap kayang sungkitin nung nastuck na memory card dun sa loob.

Suggestion: they should call the USB port as ALL-in-1 card reader! Why? There’s no difference. You only need a USB adaptor and the USB can read any types of card, whether it’s microSD, miniSD, Memory Stick Pro Duo or whatever.
