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.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as described

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: Worked great. This will mostly be used with SD cards.

Cons: No documentation. I was able to test the MS/MS Duo slot, the SD/MMC slot, and the XD slot. The SD/MMC slot is upside down though, so try fitting your cards in shiny-side up for it. I thought the T Flash was for the mini cards, but I almost lost mine in the slot. The cord is a bit short, but I was able to move it to a lower bay without issue.

Other Thoughts: Also, I don't know what that guy is talking about USB 3.0 for - it's a USB 2 connection.

5 out of 5 eggsGood 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: Good price, nice features, worked as advertised.

Cons: None that I could find...

Other Thoughts: I need to mention that I did not run benchmarks on the card reader-- so I'm not 100% sure they're USB 3.0 speeds [many USB 3.0 card readers have their card readers run on the slower USB2.0 interface]. I mostly bought this just to add a USB3.0 port to the front of a case that didn't have one-- it worked great in that regard. The card reader works great too (at whatever speed it runs on). Even USB2.0 speeds would suffice for what I'm using it for.

I didn't observe any lopsided slots for the card reader -- all ports looked straight to me.

It did what it's supposed to do and for that I'm happy. Plus it doesn't have any gaudy logos, like the Rosewill brand.

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: Fits nicely into my case. Matches color.

Cons: Running Debian Jessie 64 bit. Reads USB sticks fine, but doesn't see SD cards at all. So for now it's just taking up space in the cabinet.

Other Thoughts: No manual or documentation.
Haven't found any linux drivers

4 out of 5 eggs

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: Plugs into USB 9 pin MB connector with no problem. Works great. Does what description said it could do. Got it for $6, so $ well spent. Has one USB 2.0 as well.

Cons: Can do without the red light on the front. Good enough to have the green light come on when media is inserted.
No slot for micro-sd. Must use SD adaptor, but works. . Mounting screws do not fit case quite right, but made it work.

Other Thoughts: Each media slot is given a drive letter by op sys even with no media inserted. All-in-all worth the $.

Pros: Looks nice and plugs right into the motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsserves my needs

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: Fast card reading in my new home-built PC
Reads the two card formats (xD and SD) I have

Cons: Red LED light stays on continuously, even when not using the card reader

Other Thoughts: I installed this reader is a home-built system housed in a Zalman Z9 case. To get the reader installed with the front of it flush with the front of the case bezel, I could only use the rear set of screw holes for securing the reader inside to 5 1/4 to 3 1/2 inch conversion brackets. But, I imagine this would apply to most internal readers. The conversion brackets i used were from an old hard drive, to mount the drive in a 5 1/4" bay. So far, the card reader seems secure in its position, even with just one screw on each side; the opening in the bezel seems to be contributing to stability.

In retrospect, I wish I had simply bought a Memory Card Reader to USB 2.0 Adapter; in other words, an external adapter that plugs into a USB port. I already had one of these for my xD card; I could have just bought another for the SD card. By installing the internal reader, I lost use of one of the two internal USB connectors, thereby losing functionality of two of four front USB ports on the PC case. However, the card reader does have 1 USB port; so, I now have 3 USB ports on front and this should normally be sufficient.
