Memory card reader price analysis: Amazon Australia vs Australian retail

We've compared memory card readers from Amazon Australia to see how their prices stack up against other Australian retailers.

The advent of smartphones, laptops and digital cameras has helped us move away from dusty old photo albums and racks of VHS tapes to more compact methods of storing memories, photos, movies and songs. It’s all well and good saving files directly to the memory card mounted to the device, but where people seem to hit a bit of a technical wall is when they’re trying to transfer files from a phone or camera to a PC or Mac. That’s where memory card readers come in handy. These nifty little devices plug directly into your home computer or laptop and accept SD and microSD cards, so you can transfer your treasured memories with little to no hassle.

While they’re not the most complicated products around, memory card readers still come in all shapes, sizes and most importantly, prices.

The table below compares some of the most popular memory card readers in Australia side-by-side so you can make an informed decision before jumping in.
