    I saw it too...looks cool but for $30 I think I will just stick with the apple one. Will be interesting to see if the build quality is par with the apple one.

    I have the apple one but this is kinda nice because 1) it's all in one 2) it has a slot for micro sd cards 3) the price. 4) color option. I have had a lot of people ask me if I could use the apple conn. kit with the micro card and now I can tell folks about this one. thanks for posting. yet another reason I love this forum and I tell all my iPad owner friends to check this site out.

    ONe of the slots looks like it might hold a compact flash card, is that true or just wishful thinking on my part?

    If so, it would certainly element other things; i.e. powered hub, card reader.

    It's not a CF slot... it's SD and Micro SD slots.

    You can either see the logos, or just look at the USB connector to tell the size of the slots.

    Agreed. Not a CF slot....why would you use those outdated things? LOL!!!!

    Wonder how well that would work now that Apple neutered the power output to these kits.

    I have the 2-to-1 version and it doesn't work with an unJB iPad. I bought the real Apple two pieces eventually and they work fine.

    I'd stay away from the 2-to-1 and 3-to-1 kits unless you plan on using them with jailbreak iPads.

    I was afraid that wasn't a CF port, but it doesn't hurt to ask

    And, why would i be interested, my d700 uses that size card as does other cameras

    I took a long shot and ordered one of these kits. It finally arrived yesterday. It seems to work just fine, but I need more time to check it out more extensively. I'm just glad that it doesn't require jail breaking to work

    @Vikki:

    I think I ordered mine on 12-28 while they were still out of stock. Once it shipped, it got here (to Kentucky) in five days or so.

    Is there any particular issues that I should be looking out for with this? I haven't had time to mess with it since the first night it came in, but it looks like that it is very particular about the names of the folders where the pictures are stored (which is actually an iOs issue more so than hardware). Apple needs to open up the file system, but I can see why they won't. They want the iPad to be as functional as possible without threatening to cannabilize its laptop sales. Having a locked down file system is no doubt part of that strategy.
