    Faster than my computer reader (USB 2)

    My question:
    Does this Sandisk SD card reader read/write files at faster speed over USB 2.0 than my built in computer's card reader??? I don't have USB 3 yet, and can't add it to my computer (all-in-one HP Touch Smart 600) given lack of space inside the all-in-one.

    I couldn't find the answer to this question on reviews, in terms of specific speed rates, so I did my own testing. ***I'm not sure if these rates will apply to your computer as I don't know if your computer card reader reads at same speed as mine. I used a 64 GB SanDisk Extreme SDXC UHS-I card which writes/reads at maximum of 45 MB/second.

    TRANSFERRING A 600 MB VIDEO FILE OVER USB 2.0:
    1) Transfer from SD card to desktop:
    Sandisk SD card reader (~30 MB/sec [~20 seconds]); My HP computer's SD card reader (~18 MB/sec [~30 seconds]).

    2) Transfer from desktop to SD card:
    Sandisk SD card reader (~20 MB/sec [~34 seconds]); My HP computer's SD card reader (~15 MB/sec [~43 seconds]).

    I did the same tests with other various size files, including 1 GB video file, 32 GB of videos/photos, and 16.4 GB of photos/videos, and got similar rates.

    Other issues- I agree that the magnetic mount is flimsy, but I got used to it, and it's not a big deal for me, but would prefer a tougher mount. It is a bit tougher than usual to get SD card into the slot, but I got used to it now, so not a big deal.

    CONCLUSION:
    At least for my specific computer, this Sandisk Card reader transfers files at higher speed over USB 2 than my computer's SD card reader. The speed differences listed above are useful for me since I transfer large amounts of files and these speed differences become significant with large file transfers.

    This model has big problems. In 2013 I changed four times this
    Sandisk card reader. One reader I threw it in the trash. Problem: broken pin for CF. Changed twice a SanDisk card reader for 7 days. Problem: a broken and bent pin in the CF slot. I bought a fourth Sandisk card reader this year, he again does not work. Problem: does not recognize the SD card (hc, 16 GB). All my life I've used Sandisk cards and SanDisk card reader without any problems. Gentlemen engineers, what is this now? Be serious and solve this problem or I have to stop buying your products! (heavy heart).

    Great product but the magnetic stand

    By Chema

    from San Diego

    Comments about SanDisk ImageMate All-in-One USB 3.0 Reader / Writer:

    It's fast and works like it should be but I hate the magnetic stand. It is really annoying so I use it in horizontal mode (without it)

      This card reader is poorly designed. The magnetic stand it comes with is useless. After very minimal use one of the pins in the CF reader broke.

        More durable than many, solid connection for cards. The stand is a joke, though.

        I fave been using compact cards for vet 10 years. This is the first reader that I have bent the pins when inserting a card. Sandisk replaced this reader twice. I am giving up on this model.

          Needed a card reader for my San Disk CF, so I decided the best fit would be a San Disk reader. Works well on my desktop and laptop (former uses Microsoft Vista, and latter has the Windows 8.0). Download is fast, and reliable. The product finish is high quality. The stand works okay (not an important feature...but results in an overall 4 stars; would have given 4.5 stars instead - to improve the stand, the magnet installed to hold down the card reader should be stronger that what it currently is). The connecting cord is long (over 3 ft.) which is great.

                Just purchased this product a couple weeks ago and so far it is fantastic. It reads all of the cards I have very quickly and transfers to the computer are quite fast.

                With manipulating the cord, it doesn't really stay on the stand, but who uses the stand in the first place anyway?

                Very much like that it's compact and portable.

                    Magnetic stand is practically useless though.

                          The unit is very fast on USB 3.0 as you would expect. The stand is attached magnetically with two notches but it won't stay on very well so I just removed the stand.
                          Also, the guided slots aren't exactly the size of the card so it doesn't slide in easily (CF Card). Every time I insert I have to be extra careful not to bend any of the pins as I put the CF Card in.
