5 out of 5 eggsAnother solid product - never disappoints

Pros: This is an always tried and true brand. I look forward to every product they make as none have failed me.

This card reader is fast. Does run hot, but I don't mind it as is external so no impact on my review.

The cards have a snug fit and i like this as the contact is solid and ensures the data transfer integrity.

The power led is a nice added touch to let you know the device is on and if you leave it in, it's easy to see so you don't break the dongle by accident.

Cons: no cons

5 out of 5 eggsComes as Ordered

Pros: It's highly convenient due its small size and the USB 3.0 functionality makes transferring data even faster.

Cons: None. Unless it somehow stops working.

Other Thoughts: It's a great deal for the price offered and works as intended.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Pros: - recognized very quickly on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Cons: - Needs more lasers.

Other Thoughts: My Canon T2i (550D) stopped working with gphoto2 and I needed a way to easily get the pictures instead of transferring them from my mac. This gizmo worked great.

3 out of 5 eggsworks well but has issue with my usb 3.0

Pros: small, works

Cons: does not work on my usb 3.0 and my others do but works fine on my 2.0,

Other Thoughts: Works great on my 2.0 but not on my 3.0 but it's not a big deal for most things.
This was purchased because my family keeps misplacing my other ones (3 of them can you imagine? ) anyhow I was tired of spending 5-30 minutes tracking down the others so purchased this so they wouldn't recognize it and take it when they can't find the others and has been here ever since and works for the small files I need it for.
It would have had 5 egg if it had worked in 3.0 slot and for the life of me I can't figure that out as they are all backwards compatible.
I would still recommend it as it works and small enough to fit in any pocket or hide from others and I assume mine is just glitched for 3.0

5 out of 5 eggsA Good Device To Transfer Media

Pros: Plug and play
Quick transfer speeds
Inexpensive

Cons: None that I can think of

Other Thoughts: I needed a way to transfer photos from my dSLR to my newly built desktop and this works nicely. It's not as big as I thought it was going to be which is a plus, and the transfer speeds aren't bad at all. I also like that I don't need to install any software to make it work.
Overall, I can recommend this product as a cheap solution to transfer SD card media.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

Pros: - Does exactly what it's supposed to. No problems whatsoever with my Toshiba Laptop.

Cons: - A little wide, makes the use of the USB port next to it not possible but not that big of a deal.

Other Thoughts: - Overall a great reader...definitely recommend.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, as always. Transcend never fails to deliver premium products at value prices.

Pros: -fast
-easy to use
-inexpensive
-build quality doesnt feel cheap

Cons: -none

Other Thoughts: Everyone has preferred manufacturers for things, seagate usually makes good hard drives, seasonic makes good power supplies and hynix makes the most ubiquitous memory modules, transcend makes the best value accessories on the market, a must-buy manufacturer.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as expected!

Pros: - works as expected
- no additional drivers or software required
- nice small size

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Tested on both Mac OSX and Linux (ubuntu) with both SD and microSD. Works great out of box so far. No additional software/drivers or setup required. Haven't really tested the speeds yet though. Nice size - about the size of a regular thumbdrive. Would be nice if there were some way to attach the cover to the back when the card reader is in use to help avoid losing it, but not a big deal. Cover snaps on tight when the drive is not in use, so no worries about it falling off. Would certainly recommend this product.
