I don't own any SDcards anymore that are just SDcards. Even for cameras.
Me too. I never bothered to buy SD or miniSD cards, just always used adapters for the few devices that I own that take those card sizes.
Additionally the builtin bazillion-in-one card reader/writer on MSI GT725 is great, and I too, have had many failed OOB and/or outright flakey USB card reader/writers. (Although I didn't bother to buy one(yet maybe) when I built my new desktop late last June...but the nb usually writes my cards)
