1 out of 5 eggsGarbage. 0 for 2.

Pros: Reads cards really quickly.

Cons: Destroys the data content on cards as it reads them.
When connected via USB 3.0, this device basically trashes all my data. Fortunately I don't keep important data on SD cards, because this thing has trashed half a dozen.
It behaves properly when connected via USB 2.0, so I thought perhaps it was the USB 3.0 extension cable I had it connected to. I bought new cables from a different vendor--no dice. Tried the front-panel USB3 ports on my case (which also have an inbuilt extension, of course, from the mobo to the case front)--no dice. I'm not going to climb behind my machine and plug the device in directly there.
I thought maybe it didn't like the Intel USB3 controller servicing the USB3 ports I was using, so I switched over to the ASRock one on my mobo. No dice. R&R drivers. No dice.
Also seems to have a lot of trouble with SDXC cards. It can't format them NTFS. Maybe I got 2 bad ones, but I picked up a USB3 SDXC reader from PPA Intl at a local big-box (for less money, even), and it's working perfectly on the same USB3 port where this thing fails miserably.

Other Thoughts: Win 7 Home
AsRock Z77 Extreme4
Intel i5-3570K OC @ 4.0 GHz (just haven't pushed further yet)
16 GiB Patriot DDR3-1600
Evga Nvidia GTX 750 Ti

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product for the price

Pros: I been using this product for a while now, and it fast to add or erase files, it been reliable and easy to use.

1 out of 5 eggsunstable

Pros: - cheap
- a small pig-tail keeps the bulk of the device away from the USB port

Cons: USB 3 - not recognized

USB 2 -Recognized the SDXC card, but randomly resets as if you removed and quickly reinserted the device.

Other Thoughts: Probably a bad solder joint. Performed at little better once it warmed up, but never stable enough to copy a 2GB file successfully.

5 out of 5 eggsTek Republic TUC-300 USB 3.0

Pros: So let me preface this by saying I ‘don’t have USB3.0 but this is still fast on USB 2.0. I was using a SanDisk Extreme 64GB microSD 64G Extended Capacity microSDXC Class 10 UHS-I for the test and MO is an old TA790GX A3+ it doesn’t even support 6GBS SATA. The test, the write speed was about 40sec/GB, the read speed was 4sec/GB. If you are using a newer MB with USB 3.0 ports and fast flash memory I would think you will get much better results. The computer also recognizes when you plug in a card write away.

Cons: None
