    Transcend TS-RDF5R reviews

    RDF5 USB 3.0 SDHC / SDXC / microSDHC/SDXC Memory Card Reader (Pink) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 224.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well I bought this product to get around an issue my Macbook Pro's internal SD card reader was having dealing with my 32GB, Sandisk Extreme Pro, 95mb/s SDXC card. This product had indeed resolved that issue and at this price-point, I think it is a great solution. The one thing I would have preferred to be different is the width. If I plug it directly into the USB port of the MBP, the second USB port becomes useless because of the width. So, my work-around device needs a work-around of its own, a ESB extension/hub. I have a square USB hub where each female port is on a different side of the square. So, the width is not an issue.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less Than $10 Until The Next SD Revision 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not super-sturdy, but works fine This is a must-have if you have USB 3.0 ports and fast SD media. It lets me get the video from my camera onto my computer very quickly for editing. The case is a very light, flimsy-feeling plastic, and although it hasn't shown any signs of breaking yet, I do worry about that a little. It heats up very quickly once plugged in, to the point where it is painful to touch for more than a couple of seconds. It doesn't seem dangerous, but again, it is a little worrying. The cap is also difficult to get off but does protect the USB connector from dirt and damage. The reader works fine for what it is, and it's a great tool to have despite the downsides.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Compatibility issues 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 914 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.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gets really hot Maybe it's just my card and it's defective, but this card reader gets *very* hot when plugged into a powered USB 3.0 outlet. Even with no SD card in it, it gets really hot just being plugged into the USB. The card seems to be working just fine, but the heat concerns me, and when an SD card is plugged into it, the SD card gets really hot too. My older non-USB 3.0 SD card readers from Transcend don't do this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice solution I have Apple Macs who sometimes failed at reading cards on SD slot. So this is a perfect solution for that issue. Read 3.0 speed, great.
    Date published: 2016-03-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Product Spending less than $ on a card reader whenever SD cards evolve is less of a painful experience than having to spend over $ each time. The transfer speeds to a PC is fast on a compatible operating system that can read an SDXC UHS-I card. Otherwise, an update is required from Microsoft to enable the reader to function correctly with an SDXC UHS-I card.I didn't like the removable protective cap. It can easily be misplaced or forgotten after downloading images. An attached rotating protector cap would have been an improvement.
    Date published: 2013-01-18
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great & Affordable Product This card reader has worked great. It's compact and affordable. It also reaches the maximum transfer speeds of my SanDisk 64GB SDXC Extreme memory cards when connected via USB 3.0.
