    I received the new 103A version of this SD converter, and it's just what I wanted. Not perfectly flush, but you need the tab to remove the card. Very happy with this one.

    Looks ugly. They should create better fit model.

    Well, it's made for a MAC ;)

    If the slot were spring loaded, they could make a flush one. I wish they would have used the Micro SD like the Surface Pro.

    Haha ha ... But on Mac it looks OK.

    Nifty Drive solves this with small "hook".

    But is the Nifty Drive the right size? The first one I got, made for a Macbook did not even go in far enough to make contact.

    No. Like similar manufacturers (BaseQi or Transcend JetDrive) - Mac only for now. I hope for future.

    Is it just me or do SD cards tend to hit the battery hard? It seems like as soon as I put one in that my battery life takes a hit.

    I have a 64GB card in my phone, and a 128GB card in my Surface Pro tablet. I never noticed anything battery related. But then, I never thought to check.
    I do know that when I put a microSD card in an adapter and write a LOT of data to it, it gets pretty warm. But never gets warm when not being accessed. So there may be something to it if it is being accessed a lot.

    Out of curiosity what types of things do you guys store in the SD cards? My 256GB SSD drive is around 70% full but I don't like storing things on an SD card because the read and write speeds are slow.
