Does exactly what it says it does, but with no style whatsoever. Connects first time, every-time, and transfers at the maximum spec of my flash cards.

I usually carry my little USB gadgets on a key-chain to keep them together, but this one didn't come with a lanyard hole.

The device is also very weak and flexes easily. I get the feeling looking at it sternly will shatter it.

    Comments about IOGEAR SuperSpeed USB 3.0 SD/microSD Card Reader/Writer:

    I needed a reader to replace the microSD to SD adapter that I already had (which was the only way I had to read cards on my Macbook Pro, but wasn't working that great). This does just what it says, no need to explain more! Recommended

        Comments about IOGEAR SuperSpeed USB 3.0 SD/microSD Card Reader/Writer:

        The only thing I don't like about this product is that you cannot delete images from the card when using the card reader...have to put the card into the PC on it's own. Would also be nice if it had a small container for travelling so the opening that receives the card is protected from dust, etc.

        Performed as expected. Note: Plug it in first without any card in it, to properly load the USB driver. Then afterwards, with the cards in it. It is perfect for computers with only USB's and no built-in card readers.

          This little guy is the same size as a normal (non-tiny) flash drive so it's not a hassle to carry with me. It is fast as in read speeds of minimum 42MB/sec and max of 44MB/sec on my 45MB/sec SD card. That's pretty dam good results if you ask me. It also fits my green color scheme of my laptop so overall, awesome stuff. Make sure you have USB 3 if you want these speeds.

              Comments about IOGEAR SuperSpeed USB 3.0 SD/microSD Card Reader/Writer:

              There seem to be fewer and fewer smaller card readers these days, especially ones that are USB 3.0. Well, this one is and clearly does the trick. Only downside the device can be pointing in the wrong direction given there's no cord. But not an issue with most laptops.

                I got this product because the SD card that was built into my MAC suddenly stopped working. I also had difficulties transferring the images through the provided cable that plugs into my camera for whatever reason.
                This does what it is supposed to do! It is super compact, so I can just put it in my bag or pocket whenever I need to bring it along!

Now it won't work at all with the delkin card but will with the Lexar card. The delkin card works in the imac card reading slot 100% of the time, so why not the card reader on my other computer? I am disappointed.

                                Yeah, I guess it's made a bit cheaply, but just don't squeeze it hard or drop it on concrete. It works for me on Win 7 Pro just fine. I'd rather have something like this that was cheap to buy, rather than a well made, expensive one. This gets the job done - 'nough said.
