During my purchasing frenzy over the last few weeks, I pciked up a Sandisk Large Memory Card Case. It arrived int he post today and after a bit of playing with it I thought I’d post my initial impressions…
Capable of holding up to 4 memory cards of different shapes and styles (good for me who uses Xd and CF), the case is quite robust and looks likely to survive a decent amount of pounding. The inside of the case is a snazzy red rubber mold which holds all the cards I’ve tried quite well.
I have only two concerns.
Firstly, it stinks. Yes, stinks as in smells funny. When open there is a funny rubbery plastic smell – it reminds me of a musty wetsuit to be honest. All I can hope is it passes.
Secondly, the latches to secure the case closed look flimsy. Really flimsy. Now I know I didn’t buy some secure case which would take a professional burgler three weeks and an arc welder to break into, but these look like they’re going to break before I ever get around to using my spare CF card. After 30 minutes of use they are already beginning to show that familiar white line on the hinge thats common to plastic attrition.
Still, at less than £3 from Amazon I expect it’ll survive long enough.
