What the hell is it with SD card readers?

What the....???

In the past year I've been through about half a dozen SD card readers.

I bought some cheap ones from China and they seemed to last about 2 months each before failing.

I bought some locally and they lasted a bit longer -- but in both cases, the little hard-wired cable with the USB connector on the end failed due to fatigue of the wires inside.

Now this morning, I grabbed my last working SD card reader and it spat the dummy half-way through a file copy.

Aaargghhh!

Is this just another example of products being made to the lowest possible price/quality?

What experiences do readers have with their card readers?

My Lappy has a SD slot and a MicroSD slot too. No problems with them so far!
