    Sony SBAC-US30 reviews

    SBAC-US30 USB 3.0 SxS Memory Card Reader is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This much money for 35MB/s transfers? I have had this unit for 6 months, and am severely dissapointed in the performnce for the price it cost me. On my PC with USB 3.0, as well as my Macbook Pro also with USB 3.0, I get 35MB/s READ and around 10MB/s WRITE speeds at most. When I put my SXS-1 cards into the Expresscard slot in my old USB 2.0 17 Macbook Pro, I get 85-90MB/s transfer speeds. Sony offers no drivers for these used in FAT and eXFAT, so there is nothing to do but plug it in and you get the trasnfer speeds you get. This is basically, my experience, the same performnce as the older SBAC-US20 USB 2.0 reader, except that it is bus powered and more convinient with only one cable being required. I would also like to mention that it is possible to insert an SXS card backwards, at which point it is not removable without extreme efforts. And I don't mean jamed or forced in, I mean loose rattling around backwards with some point of the card catching inside. Had to use a piece of cardboard slid across the top of the car to shim across the protruduing point, be careful.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional I use this card reader for location production when I need to create working copies & backups of my files. Like all Sony products, this is well made, looks nice and works as expected. My only critique is that it is expensive for what it is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for SxS card users with Sony Cameras Just bought the Sony PXW-X180 (using SxS cards) and needed an efficient reader. I recommend to stick with the Sony products when it comes to transferring media.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves Wear & Tear on Your Camera I didn't realize how many hours I was racking up on my camera transferring footage until I started using the card reader. It's fantastic and fast.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as expected. Works perfectly. Has pretty quick speeds. Can also function as an SD card reader if you have an SxS>SD card adapter.
