3 out of 5 eggsThis reader has been good until...

This review is from: Tek Republic TUC-2000 3.5" USB 2.0 CF/SDHC/SDXC/microSD/MicroSDXC/miniSD/MMC/MS/XD All-In-One Internal Card Reader

Pros: This card reader has many card reading features for all types of cards and has an extra USB port for the front of the case. It has a metal housing that makes it easy to install and I can get all 4 screws in to mount it into a standard case, where as some card readers are plastic mount and barely make it to use 2 screws.

Cons: I just installed a new PC for a client who was complaining that when they shutdown the PC, then the next day, try to boot it up it sticks on the logo screen and won't boot. This is a Gigabyte GA-H97M-D3H motherboard. So I go to troubleshoot and when I unplug the card reader it boots fine. I tried another card reader (the same kind) and I get the same result. It boots up if the power is unplugged for 10 sec then plugged back in, but not on a simple reboot.
I am going to try a USB PCI card with a internal header to solve this problem. There is one that Rosewill makes (N82E16815166001) that may work. I am thinking that since the PCI card is not part of the integrated USB on the MB it will not affect the boot process. So now my card reader deal will cost another 12 bucks.

Other Thoughts: I have used this card reader multiple times without problems and have been happy with it. I just hope I don't run into any more compatibility issues on other motherboards. But for the price it is worth the risk.

1 out of 5 eggsStay away... move onto another product.

This review is from: Tek Republic TUC-2000 3.5" USB 2.0 CF/SDHC/SDXC/microSD/MicroSDXC/miniSD/MMC/MS/XD All-In-One Internal Card Reader

Pros: Something to occupy a front bay

Cons: Plugged into correct USB header on motherboard. USB works but all the card readers do not. Device manager is unable to load a driver (product claims is plug and play).

Using Win 7 Ult. 64-bit. After digging around, no manual or driver is available. Company phone number sends you to a voice mail. Try do download product manual, link is dead.

Sketchy doesn't envelope how poorly I feel about this product/company.

After reading copious reviews on other sites that start with the letter A and share a name with a river in Brazil - appears my problem is quite abundant and people typically have to return their product 2-3 times before they get a model that works.

I'm trying to avoid the headaches of an RMA and just want this to work, but all communication with the company has been unanswered. Newegg should really reconsider this product line if this is the level of service and quality of product passing through their store.

4 out of 5 eggsAnother Good Value

This review is from: Tek Republic TUC-2000 3.5" USB 2.0 CF/SDHC/SDXC/microSD/MicroSDXC/miniSD/MMC/MS/XD All-In-One Internal Card Reader

Pros: Inexpensive. Handles everything I've thrown at it.

Cons: Cheap. Flimsy.

Other Thoughts: There have been many complaints about the bright red LED which is lit all the time. This is correct. This also takes just a moment or two to remedy. The case comes apart without tools and the faceplate comes off just as easily. The LED is on the circuit board. You can put a piece of black tape over the surface mount LED on the bottom side of the circuit board, or you can coat the inside part of the little translucent plastic piece on the faceplate with some nail polish. Easy!

1 out of 5 eggsVery short cord

This review is from: Tek Republic TUC-2000 3.5" USB 2.0 CF/SDHC/SDXC/microSD/MicroSDXC/miniSD/MMC/MS/XD All-In-One Internal Card Reader

Pros: Probably a good card reader. I did not have the chance to use it.

Cons: Very short cord! I could not install this because of the very short cord attached to the device. It would not reach the mother board connection. the cord is only 16" long and may work on a smaller case then mine.

Other Thoughts: Worthless unless you have a small case.

1 out of 5 eggsSD cards insert upside down!

This review is from: Tek Republic TUC-2000 3.5" USB 2.0 CF/SDHC/SDXC/microSD/MicroSDXC/miniSD/MMC/MS/XD All-In-One Internal Card Reader

Pros: It works after figuring out SD cards had to be inserted upside down.

Cons: NO documentation/instructions! Link on Tek Republic's to it is broken.

Other Thoughts: Cheap Chinese Crapola

4 out of 5 eggsWorks great... yet manages to annoy.

This review is from: Tek Republic TUC-2000 3.5" USB 2.0 CF/SDHC/SDXC/microSD/MicroSDXC/miniSD/MMC/MS/XD All-In-One Internal Card Reader

Pros: Installed easily and worked perfectly on install. In Windows 7, you pretty much don't even know it's there until you insert a card (unless you look in Disk Management of course), which is great. With some card readers they constantly show up in the removable storage section of your computer, which can be a pain if you don't remember what drive letter is associated with what card type.

Cons: But... the red light. There's a single red LED which is CONSTANTLY on. Really, what's that all about? I mean, there's a separate green light which turns on when a card is inserted, so what's the function of the red light, exactly?

It's like every time I look at my case, that light is staring back at me as if to say, "yup, I'm still here."

I know a single LED light is an odd thing to complain about... but WHAT IS WITH THAT RED LIGHT?! It's just there. All. The. Time.

Is this what Sting was singing about?

4 out of 5 eggsworks but short cable

This review is from: Tek Republic TUC-2000 3.5" USB 2.0 CF/SDHC/SDXC/microSD/MicroSDXC/miniSD/MMC/MS/XD All-In-One Internal Card Reader

Pros: works exactly as expected, no difficulties installing or using. No drivers needed in Windows 8.

Cons: Cable is short and may not reach in some full tower configurations.

Other Thoughts: Perfect for mid tower or smaller.

5 out of 5 eggsThey work fine

This review is from: Tek Republic TUC-2000 3.5" USB 2.0 CF/SDHC/SDXC/microSD/MicroSDXC/miniSD/MMC/MS/XD All-In-One Internal Card Reader

Pros: The work fine. Just plug them in and Windows 7 and 8 find them. Have several of this brand, both USB2 and USB3 and have never had any issue with them. Can't beat the price.

Cons: For this price, none.

Other Thoughts: The SD reader is upside down. NBD, a lot of readers do something like that to get more capability into limited space.
No documentation. Link to product page will give you a link to a manual download, but clicking on it gives a 404.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised.

This review is from: Tek Republic TUC-2000 3.5" USB 2.0 CF/SDHC/SDXC/microSD/MicroSDXC/miniSD/MMC/MS/XD All-In-One Internal Card Reader

Pros: The device works as it should for me. I have used it to copy files USB, SD and Micro SD.... It fit.s nicely in the case and screw holes are where they're supposed to be.

Cons: There are no cons.

Other Thoughts: In other thoughts, I purchase on sale for 10 bucks. Well worth that price and as always, NewEgg shipped fast and secure.
