  • Works great, low price
    Verified BuyerReviewed by pt827 - 13 mai 2013

    This reader is smaller than I expected, but it works great. It is one of the few readers that supports USH-1 high speed transfers, and is less than half the price of other USH-1 readers. It is fast when used with USH-1 SD cards. No drivers to load. Card is immediately recognized when the reader is plugged in. While some might complain that it only supports SD and microSD size cards vs the many-in-one readers out there, I prefer a dedicated reader like this so I don't get lots of extra drive letters showing up in my drive list for things I will never use. I've encountered plenty of quirks with other memory card readers, but this one just works, and works well. If all you need is a reader for SD and microSD, buy this one.

    This may sound odd or defeatist, but I was surprised that this item works (and has done so, reliably, for 2 months now). Most adapters/card readers/etc, regardless of the brand or lack of same, work about half the time if you're lucky. My first version, a Sandisk, was DOA and the other (unbranded) still works about every 3rd attempt. Had accepted this "problem," but then saw this one on sale, free shipping within a larger order, and with USB 3.0. And it works, every time - which is stellar considering how lousy its colleagues seem to be.

  • Works Great!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by fhgfrstrdchg - 6 avril 2015

    Works great, in fact it's faster than most pc's I put it in, I bought one for my kid for school, he loved it but it came up missing so I ordered both of us one. With usb 3.0 and a 64gb samsung evo micro sd 48x it can read and write faster than the hard drive in my kids pc and the school pc's have trouble reading/writing at the max speed. well i guess the face that i bought 2 more after receiving the first one should speak for itself.

  • Specification error(?)
    Reviewed by brutus - 17 février 2015

    I was looking for memory readers and found the Transcend 3.0 model 15-RDF5K. The price ($6.99) is great; but, the specs are way out there. Height of 8.9 inches, Width of 2 FEET (24 inches), and a Depth of over 4 FEET (56 inches), yet it weighs but 18 ounces. What are the true Specs?

  • These work great
    Verified BuyerReviewed by prichard389 - 15 novembre 2014

    I am very happy with the card reader, however, I was looking for a card reader for an older camera and thought that it would be the right size. It isn't, but I'm sure that I will be able to use the one I ordered, so plan to keep it.
