    This is the third card reader purchased since switching from film to digital in June 2006. This is my second Transcend reader in the last 3 years. The product has proven to be reliable.

    Ensure you have from the Microsoft Windows Download Centre their Update for Windows XP (KB955704) to add support for the exFAT file system format. Otherwise, your PC may not be able to read the SDXC UHS-I memory card and you will be prompted to format the card in your PC which will render the SDXC portion of the card useless. You will then have to contact the card's manufacturer to install the SD 3.0 Formatter to return the SDXC format to the card. A big hassle if you didn't know about this beforehand.

    It looks nice, keeps the SD card cool. Works well on Asus laptops.

    The mini-SD slot is poorly designed.

    I've tested my two RDF5s with Firmware version TS35 and Wintec Filemate Elite 64GB (Model 3FMSX64GU1E-R).

    Compatibility issues with:
    - Toshiba Satellite L740 (USB 2.0) - Gives errors with any SD card.

    Performance issues with:
    - Renesas USB 3.0 Controller– Extremely low writing speed – 9~14 MB/s
    - MSI G41M-E43 – Very slow reading speeds. Writing was not tested.

    Just for reference the writing constant speed with Sonnet SDXC UHS-I Pro (ExpressCard/34) is 45 MB/s (card's max supported writing speed).

    I'm not happy with this device.

    Note: The both slots cannot be used simultaneously.

        Great for the price, but a couple of complaints

        Pros

        • Compact
        • price

        Cons

        • Gets Very Warm
        • Only 1 Card At A Time

        Best Uses

          Comments about RDF5 USB 3.0 SDHC / SDXC / microSDHC/SDXC Memory Card Reader (Black):

          Two complaints:

          1. Card reader gets very warm even when not in use, even with no cards in it.
          2. Can't have a SD & microSD card in reader at the same time (even though there are two slots).

          Other than that, very inexpensive. With (newer) faster SDHC cards you can transfer files much faster than with a USB 2.0 reader. (If you have older, slower, SD cards you won't see much difference between this & a USB 2.0 reader.)

                            Comments about RDF5 USB 3.0 SDHC / SDXC / microSDHC/SDXC Memory Card Reader (Black):

                            This was purchased to make transferring files from cameras and audio recorders faster than doing it from device to PC. Works incredibly well and it's compact enough that I can keep it in my kit when I travel. Doesn't slow down my cards at all as some card readers have done in the past. I can transfer multi-gigabyte files, or multiple of them in no time at all. USB 3.0 is the way to go.

                            No issues with PC recognizing any of the cards I've put into it (various speeeds and sizes of Sandisk and panasonic cards, in both standard and micro) And I'm a big fan of the blue light indicating the card is reading. Not too dim not too bright.

                            Only complaint is it gets a bit warm if used for more than a few minutes at a time. Not enough to cause harm to equipment, but it's noticeable when I unplug it.

                            If only I could keep myself from misplacing the cap all the time.

                                            The size of a small usb stick. Works great and fast to offload your SD cards. Just make sure you plug it into a usb 3 port (the blue) ones, otherwise you'll get the slower transfer speed.

                                              I needed a fast way to dump my SD cards. With USB 3.0, this is fast and compact.

                                                  Due to the onboard card reader on my macbook pro going haywire, this is a necessity.
