This review is from: Transcend TS-RDF5K USB 3.0 Support SDHC (UHS-I), SDXC (UHS-I), microSD, microSDHC (UHS-I), and microSDXC (UHS-I) Flash Card Reader

Pros: Blazing fast... Reads microSD cards that several other readers would not.. Will read/write 128 gig cards

Cons: Wish the cap was attached.... Pain in the face keeping up with it. I might drill cap and attach with tether

Other Thoughts: Gonna buy a couple more...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat reader, for a USB 3.0

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDF5K USB 3.0 Support SDHC (UHS-I), SDXC (UHS-I), microSD, microSDHC (UHS-I), and microSDXC (UHS-I) Flash Card Reader

Pros: I'm glad that it reads both formats and also it reads and writes at the speeds the cards are rated for.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: In some cases, it will depend on the controller but in my laptop, the speeds the cards are rated for, are not always near the limit but far off, but then again, my laptop is 3 years old and I can't find newer drivers for the controller, so maybe the speed of the flash memory cards reach their limit.

But I'd definitely recommend this reader, because it reads both formats and easily recognized my 128GB SD card from Wintec.

2 out of 5 eggsVery impractical card reader

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDF5K USB 3.0 Support SDHC (UHS-I), SDXC (UHS-I), microSD, microSDHC (UHS-I), and microSDXC (UHS-I) Flash Card Reader

Pros: Transcend quality

Cons: Large - covers 2 side-by-side USB ports. Piano finish is not match to anything next to it, be it a car key in a pants pocket, or metal paper clips in a desk drawer.

Other Thoughts: Do not recommend for other than occasional use (once a year, maybe).

5 out of 5 eggsFAST!

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDF5K USB 3.0 Support SDHC (UHS-I), SDXC (UHS-I), microSD, microSDHC (UHS-I), and microSDXC (UHS-I) Flash Card Reader

Pros: Extremely fast.
I ran some comparisons with the fastest cards I could find between this adapter connected to a USB 3.0 port on my HP Chromebook 14, and the built-in SD slot on the same machine. This adapter was far faster than the internal SD slot (I use the SD card it to store Steam games I run on the Chromebook via Crouton).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I'm not posting numbers as this is a review of the reader, not the cards.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Card Reader!!!!!!!

Pros: It's a card reader. It does what it's supposed to do and fast. If you want a card reader that performs as stated, look no further.

5 out of 5 eggsEggcellent product.

This review is from: Transcend TS-RDF5K USB 3.0 Support SDHC (UHS-I), SDXC (UHS-I), microSD, microSDHC (UHS-I), and microSDXC (UHS-I) Flash Card Reader

Pros: -Small
-Reliable so far
-Good speeds
Overall, this thing is great. It seems to go a bit faster than the internal card reader that it replaced. SD card readers seem to have a fairly high failure rate in my experience, but this one is going strong still. Also, does seem a bit faster than the one it replaced (yay USB 3.0).

Cons: -The cap is easily lost
I do wish the cap had a tether of some sort, but that is personal preference and not a huge deal.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am very happy with this product and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a solid SD card read. With it being portable and reliable I have started taking it with me to use on other computers as well - since everyone seems to like to see pictures and no one seems to have a card reader anymore.
