          Comments about Sonnet SDXC UHS-I Pro Reader/Writer ExpressCard/34 SDXC/SDHC Media Reader:

          Already had an expresscard 34/54 drive installed in my computer for reading SxS cards and can now use it to read micro SD cards (from a GoPro).

          Was concerned that using an adapter to get from micro SD to standard SDXC and yet another adapter to get to expresscard 34 might not work, but it does. Haven't checked transfer speed yet but I anticipate USB datarates, although that will be fine. No more having to use the GoPro as a drive.

          You must install the driver for it to work, but you knew that already.

              Comments about Sonnet SDXC UHS-I Pro Reader/Writer ExpressCard/34 SDXC/SDHC Media Reader:

              LOVE this card reader! Super fast transfer rate from camcorders (sure beats a USB 2.0 connection). Use it a lot with SDXC Extreme Pro HD Video cards from SanDisk and works like a charm on my 17" late 2011 Macbook Pro. ONE NOTE: Be sure to eject the cards properly or your computer will likely CRASH! ALSO, if you wish to eject the express reader itself from the PCI slot, it takes a bit of finger strength on the near edge of the slot to pop it out. Other than that, great express card to have in your arsenal.

                  Comments about Sonnet SDXC UHS-I Pro Reader/Writer ExpressCard/34 SDXC/SDHC Media Reader:

                  First thing, I didn't even know about the ExpressCard slot until I was looking for a faster way to download my SD cards to my older MacBookPro.
                  I did a few quick tests with this card on my 15" MacBookPro 4,1 Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz and it was about 6-10 times faster than using the USB 2.0 port. I tested with a 4GB file on a class 10 SD card directly from my camera and from 2 card readers using the USB 2.0 and then using the ExpressCard. This card has made my old MacBookPro very usable to take out in the field for quickly downloading my cards to. You do need to use your thumbnail to push the card to release it and be careful not to push on the express card itself or it will release and you will need to restart your laptop.
                  I really like not having to carry around an extra card reader and not having to mess with any other cables. The card does fit almost flush and is a great addition to my older MacBookPro so it still gets a 5 star. You really won't even notice it's there until you need to use it.

                    I've only owned the product a couple weeks so I can't say anything about it's longevity but I am very happy with its performance. Granted, I'm using a very fast UHS-I SD card but it is good to know that the reader seems to be working at full potential. This has accomplished exactly what I wanted which was freeing up a USB connection and eliminating yet another wire on my desk. Highly recommended!

                          Using this in my Macbook Pro to input video files. Very happy with the speed. Much faster than usb 2.0. Card fits nicely in Macbook. Needed driver from Sonnet and their website is well designed for ease of use and info.
                          Thanks to all the reviewers for helping me make this decision.

                              Purchased for MacBook Pro and install required download from manufacturer website. No conflicts detected as yet and much more convenient and faster then USB device. Would recommend if only downloading from SDHC cards, as have yet to try SDXC but will use in future when prices come down.

                                Overall, this is a great reader, and I wouldn't suggest anything else. However, as others have stated, the reader is difficult to insert and take out without a good finger nail or other small device.

                                  It's not particularly faster than a lot of SD card readers, but it is definitely more reliable and it's one less cable hanging off your laptop.
                                  I use it to transfer video files from my Canon 60D from 32GB and 16GB SD cards.
                                  You'll need good fingernails to get the SD cards out!

                                        Purchased for use on a 2008 Macbook Pro with only the USB 2.0. Really fast transfers with a Sandisk UHS-1 64gb card. Fit flush with the macbook pro body.

                                        This Sonnet reader is fast and nearly perfect.

                                        The reason I took a star off was for two reasons. The first fast the driver was a little difficult to install. The second reason is that sometimes the reader comes out when you eject the memory card. If the reader & card eject and then touch contacts again, it will make the Mac reboot. Doesn't happen often, but the slot is tight for the card, so it does happen.

                                        I will be keeping my Sonnet SDXC Reader, it works that good. But I'll probably eject the Reader, then take the card out to save myself the reboot issue. This was suggested by Sonnet support too.
