5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfect

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDP5K USB 2.0 Card Reader

Pros: Compact
Both SD and Microsd
PLUG & PLAY (no drivers required)

Cons: does not bring me beer

Other Thoughts: For 6 bucks, by far this has been the best card reader I currently own that still works. I have purchased a few powered multi-card readers that were from Name Brand companies and have had them fail, cause blue screens , and driver issues. This card reader is a MUST BUY.. for 6 bucks you WILL NOT find anything cheaper, lighter or compact as this.BTW did i mention PLUG & PLAY!!!!

2 out of 5 eggsnot that great

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDP5K USB 2.0 Card Reader

Pros: physically built well?

Cons: When removing memory cards, still shows drive in use and contents. Most of the time when putting in another SD card, it will still show the previous SD card, forcing you to have to remove the entire device.

Because you put the card in on the side, as opposed to the rear, this can make it very difficult to access depending on how your USB port is oriented.

Other Thoughts: All in all, if you are using this for a single SD card you will be OK, though not great. If you are using multiple SD cards, stay away as you'll have countless headaches. I bought 5 of these for our office, and we have constant problems with every single one.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid function

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDP5K USB 2.0 Card Reader

Pros: This is a simple, compact, functional product. It is quickly recognized when inserted into a usb slot and I've never had problems with it.

Cons: It's black, so sometimes it's hard to see if I have it laying around. Really no other cons I can note. Maybe the fact that it only reads SD and micro SD cards.

Other Thoughts: If you're after a simple SD or micro SD card reader, this one fits the bill nicely. I like the fact it's dedicated to just SD and micro SD and works very well at that. I would buy it again.

4 out of 5 eggsDoes what it is supposed to, most of the time!

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDP5K USB 2.0 Card Reader

Pros: - USB 2.0
- small
- SD & Micro SD slots

Cons: - sometimes SD cards do not register when put into the device. You can pull the SD card out and put it back in and it will normally load up properly. Doesn't happen enough to detract from the product, probably just the data-pins not connecting with the SD reader's data-pins :) (not sure if that is the appropriate vernacular, but it makes sense to me :)

5 out of 5 eggsDoes exactly what you need it for.

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDP5K USB 2.0 Card Reader

Pros: This does what you need it to do - excellent transfer rate, snug fit for SD cards, no extra input slots for unnecessary devices. It doesn't stick out like a sore thumb when in operation. I've actually attached a piece of velcro to it and keep it attached to my case for when I need it.

Cons: It is a bit small - but then again, so are SD cards. You get what you pay for, and this is well worth its price.
