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.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but dosen't work in some laprops

Pros: I got this at a good price while on sale. In general I am happy with this card reader. I don't pay much attention to transfer rates unless I find a device to be exceptionally slow. For my needs the transfer rates are fine, so I am satisfied with this aspect of the reader. I only gave this product four eggs because of a problem I mention in the con section.

Cons: The one complaint I have is that this card reader does not work with my primary laptop at home - an HP Envy 17 (2000 series). The laptop detects it, then disconnects and detects it again in a repeated cycle until I remove it. It does work with other laptops and PCs I have tried it on. It does this both with an SD card and a micro SD card. It worked with an Envy 14, an Envy m6 and both my PC at home and at work.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this card reader works well, but I would not recommend it if you plan to use it with an Envy 17, at least not one from the 2000 series.

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.
