It's small, has a fast transfer rate, and does what it's supposed to. Only wish is that it had a USB-C connector instead of the clunky usb3 micro connector

It works

It works fine but leaves more to be desired in terms of transfer speed. They offer a usb-c cable but not sure why considering this doesn’t even read cards at the full speed potential of the card. Samsung 256gb ssd reads around 60-75mb per sec when the card itself advertises 90-110 speeds. The highest I see this reader go is about 85 but it won’t sustain the speed. It keeps dropping and sustaining speed in the 6mb per sec range. Being. USB 3.1 reader with usb-c cords available, I expected it to fly.

I used it for more than a year. It usually requires some wiggling for the SD card to be found, it transmits at about 75 MB/s to my macbook pro. It isn't bad, but I just upgraded to the ProGrade SD card reader and prefer its quality build and 250 MB/s transfer speeds.

Good and fast
