1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: None

Cons: Never worked out of the box, tried on multiple computers and was never recognized, not even worth paying return shipping to send it back, I'll just eat the loss. Sometimes it's such a gamble buying from newegg....

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I wanted, Love it

Pros: It's very small, would fit in your pocket and not be uncomfortable. Reads cars well and reads them quickly.

SD,SDHC,SDXc,RS-MMC,Mobile-MMC. MMC-Micro, MS,MS-Pro,MS-Duo,MS-Pro Duo,MS-ProHG Duo 8bit mode

Works on All Windows versions from XP on up. Works on Mac OS X v1.0.3.9 or later

USB 3.0 and compatible with USB 2

"Claims" data rate 5Gbps, 480/12/1.5 Mbps

Cons: I really don't call these cons but some may. It's tiny, very small. Would not be hard to lose track of this little guy.

Also the cord is very short. It measures 3.5 inches from the device to the USB plug. Overall length of the device is exactly 8 inches tip to tip. Thickness of the reader is 0.5 inches.

Other Thoughts: I just wanted a small card reader to be able to read the SD cards from a digital camera I picked up. I did not want to put another device in the front bays of my desktop. I was however prepared to. I was shopping card readers on New Egg. As I signed up to receive e-mails from New Egg I found an e-mail in my inbox the next morning. New Egg knew I was shopping for card readers and sent me some suggestions other shoppers had liked. I saw this and purchased it within 10 minutes. I guess there marketing e-mails work well ;)

5 out of 5 eggsFastest reader

Pros: Fastest card reader that I've own. Very compact in size.
Customer service is from Tek Republic is also excellent. They responded quickly and replaced a defective item quickly. Highly recommended!

Cons: microSD and SD slots share the same drive letter so you can't use both at the same time.

Other Thoughts: The speed of the read and write depends on the card used and there aren't very many fast cards out there. I used the PNY Elite Performance 64GB SD and I tested up to 90MB/s read and write.

5 out of 5 eggsYes Please

Pros: Price
Small, seriously tiny
Short cord that doesn't get in the way
Doesn't require external power

Cons: Nope

Other Thoughts: It works

The short cord could be a Pro or Con depending on your needs. Keep in mind the cord is VERY short, so if you need the hub run any further than a few inches this item is not for you. You'd be better off with a powered device to mount to a desk.

You will be hard pressed to find a smaller card reader that is USB 3.0

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with my SD cards

Pros: Works just fine with my SD cards. I currently only have USB 2.0 on my computer, but this reader doesn't mind.

Cons: The attachment cord could be a bit longer - at least long enough so when I plug it in to a port on the front of my desktop, I can lay the unit on top of the tower.

Other Thoughts: I bought this on a Newegg daily deal and it works well for the $'s I spent. I don't have any other memory cards other than SD, so I can't really speak to how well those work.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Inexpensive Upgrade

Pros: I purchased this external USB 3.0 card reader to replace an older USB 2.0 internal card reader. Windows 7 64 Pro recognized it immediately and automatically loaded drivers.

I inserted a card from one of my cameras and the card reader worked as expected.

This is the first time in a very long time that I didn't have to load drivers from a CD-ROM disc or go to a web site to find drivers.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsI can dig it

Pros: Had a strange problem with micro SD cards dropping in windows when using an SD card adapter. Using this to directly read from the micro SD solved the problem.

USB 3 speeds

Cons: nope

Other Thoughts: I like turtles
