3 out of 5 eggsGood Little Reader

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDF8K USB 3.0 Support SDHC/SDXC/UDMA6/UDMA7 CF and MSXC, with CF, SD, and Micro Slot Flash Card Reader - Black

Pros: This is a good little reader and it does it's job. I get very good speeds transferring data off of memory cards (depending on the card). My class 10 card out of my DSLR usually transfers around 30-45mb/s while my phone card transfers closer to 10mb/s.

Cons: I do not like that the USB cord for this is extremely short, and extremely thick. I also do not like the fact that you can only have one Memory card plugged in at any one time. I was hoping to use a space micro SD card as a smartcard for security.

Finally I run into some issues where I have to unplug and plug the USB cord back in after switching out mem cards in the device. Still haven't figured out what causes that issue.

Other Thoughts: Overall I like the device, I get good speeds out of it, which is what I purchased it for. It can transfer all my pictures from my DSLR much faster than plugging the DSLR into the PC so I'm happy. I knocked off two eggs for the issues and annoyances listed in the cons section.

5 out of 5 eggsNice, fast SDXC reader

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDF8K USB 3.0 Support SDHC/SDXC/UDMA6/UDMA7 CF and MSXC, with CF, SD, and Micro Slot Flash Card Reader - Black

Pros: USB 3.0 for faster transfers. I was can hit read speeds of 85-90 MB/sec with a PNY 64 GB SDXC card (P-SDX64U1H-GE) rated at 90 MB/sec read, 60 MB/sec write. With this card I got 76 MB/sec copying 145 files totaling 4 GB off the card, and 55 MB/sec copying a 18 GB file to the card.

I was able to get read at 30 MB/sec (the rated speed) on an older 16 GB SD card, which I couldn't do with my old USB 2.0 reader.

It's small, inexpensive, and I like the styling. No drivers seemed to be required, Win7 found it right away.

Cons: The supplied USB 3.0 cable that came with my unit is only 18" long. I'm using a Belkin F4U058tt USB 3.0 hub on my desk which came with a 4' cable, so the short cable isn't a big con for me. I thought someone might want to know. Transcend didn't specify the cable length, so I suppose you may get something different.

The LED indicator is basically on if the unit is powered and will blink if there's any data access happening. I wish it would go off if I eject the SD card, but it doesn't (probably because it's shared with the microSD and CF ports).

Other Thoughts: The "convenient LED indicator" is blue and is located on top, at the left edge aligned with the "(T)Transcend" printing. It's not blindingly bright, which is good in my book.

USB powered, but that was expected. I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit on an i7-3770k and using a USB 3.0 port on my Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboard.

I bought this to go with a new DSLR that shoots 28 MB raw files, so the speed is nice. Good reader, no regrets!

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDF8K USB 3.0 Support SDHC/SDXC/UDMA6/UDMA7 CF and MSXC, with CF, SD, and Micro Slot Flash Card Reader - Black

Pros: Fast. I used it with my Thinkpad X1C and a Sandisk CF card (rated 90MB/s) and got 80+MB/s. Four times faster than my USB 2.0 card reader.

Cons: Haven't noticed yet.

5 out of 5 eggsQuadrupled the speed

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDF8K USB 3.0 Support SDHC/SDXC/UDMA6/UDMA7 CF and MSXC, with CF, SD, and Micro Slot Flash Card Reader - Black

Pros: Went from 18 t o 20 MBs to 92 to 110 MBs. purchased it to replace internal CF card reader for video. 15.6 GBs video took 14 minutes under old reader . New reader is under 4 minutes That means both cards are read in less time than 1 under old 2.0 reader saving 20 to 25 minutes.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This would have been a great purchase at twice the price. time saver for sure.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card reader

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDF8K USB 3.0 Support SDHC/SDXC/UDMA6/UDMA7 CF and MSXC, with CF, SD, and Micro Slot Flash Card Reader - Black

Pros: Fast, nice build, works with Apple OSX

Cons: cable is a little thick, not a big deal but I do end up plugging it in close to my mouse.

Other Thoughts: My Roswill USB-3 reader never worked and support was no help I decided it was time to buy another one so I didn't have unload 32Gig CF cards with a USB2 reader. The reader has worked great so far. I decided to go with Transcend as that is the CF card of choice after I've had problems with my Kingston cards. Transcend has better support.
