Great little device; cheap and does it's job I bought this to read the memory card for my digital camera. It replaced a much larger and more expensive SanDisk "all in one" reader which puked and died for no reason after a year or so of very light use. This unit is very easy to use, just plug it into any USB port and slide your SD card into the slot. You do not need any specialized software or drivers, it just pops in and your PC sees it and will read it like any drive. File transfer was very fast with no problems. When you're done, you can leave it in place or easily pop it out and stick it in your pocket, kit bag etc. I'm using it on an older Dell desktop running Windows XP. I also used it in my wife's HP Laptop running Windows Vista Premium and it worked like a charm. I highly recommend it.I used this to read and recover erased files, which I had accidently deleted from my camera's memory card. As long as you DON'T record files over the erased files or format the memory card, you can in most cases recover deleted files. I found a very nice completely FREE program called "RECUVA" that I downloaded and used to recover my pics. I highly recommend this if you have deleted or erased files and you need to recover them.[I found many other programs that were advertised as "free", but in fact would only show you the deleted files, not recover them; you had to go online and buy the activation code or license key at $30 to $60, depending on the program, to actually use their software. Not so with RECUVA] 5Amazing! I just received this reader today, so I can't comment on it's longevity, but I am so far VERY impressed. I just transferred two HD video files (.mts) with it. One was about 2 GB, the other 120 MB - both transfered with no problems, and blazingly fast. No setup at all involved, just pop in the reader, stick it in your USB drive (I used a USB hub, and it was still very fast), and you can read your card like any regular USB drive. I'm on a Windows 7 machine.I did a good amount of research before deciding on this reader, and was almost set on the Sandisk MicroMate Reader - for SD and SDHC memory cards before finding this one. I was put off by the high price of the Sandisk MicroMate ($20), but at the same time, I trusted the brand. I have never used a Transcend product, and the $2 price tag seemed way to good to be true, but I figured it's $2, there's very little to lose.I was very suspicious of the $2 price tag, but the reviews on here assuaged me to try the product. The same happened to me, and I'm very impressed and happy with Transcend's card reader. I have no idea how Transcend can afford to offer this for such an absurdly low price. I'm thinking I should have ordered a few more just to keep around since it's such a steal right now. It does exactly what I wanted a $20 card reader to do. 5Getting Your Photos Online Small card readers like this will plug into your PC or notebook. In my case, I was interested in backing my photos up to "the cloud" while on a trip. Together with a USB On-the-Go cable that has full size USB socket on one side and a micro USB plug on the other, I could do that. When plugged into my Galaxy S3 or my Coby 7 inch Android tablet I was able to plug my SD card into this card reader and then "see it" as an external storage device on my Android device. From there it was easy enough to back up my photos to, in my case, Dropbox using the WiFi at my hotel. This is small and light weight and will fit into any handy pocket of your luggage or camera case. Some cameras advertise WiFi connectivity but that often doesn't include the ability to access free WiFi hotspots due to the need to interact with the site to accept end user agreements. The card reader, the right cable and your phone or tablet gains you access to the internet through hotspots. Obviously, this connection isn't restricted to photos. 5Good quality item, designed well, functions well. So far so good. Like that the cards point perpendicular to the stick. On my computer tower, the USB plugs run on an angled vertical orientation in the front. This means the memory card points downward when the card reader is inserted. As passersby walk by my computer tower, their clothing doesn't get caught and get yanked out as other designs have done. The reading of my files is instantaneous and everything transfers without issues. I use it several times a week to xfer files. 5Works Well, Bad Fit I'm going to be visiting some people who have computers without SD/SDHC readers. Rather than risk carrying my laptop, I purchased the SD/SDHC (plus two other types) card reader. To have my programs, and not pollute my host's computers, I downloaded PortableApps to a 32GB, Class 10, SDHC card. I tried the adapter with the SDHC card plugged in the adapter and the adapter plugged into one of USB 2.0 ports on my computer. The combination worked well with no apparent degradation in speed.The only difficulty encountered was because the adapter is wider than a standard USB plug, the adapter would not fit with another USB plug already inserted in the adjacent port. I have two pairs of USB ports on my laptop that are only separated enough to plug in standard width USB plugs in both ports. One pair is used for my mouse and external drive. The other pair already has the cooler fan plugged into one port. I had to use a 1 foot (33 cm) USB 2.0, type A, male to female, jumper cable to connect the adapter to the remaining USB port.This width problem seems prevalent with USB devices, rather than USB cables. Two of my amateur radio transceiver programmers have the same problem. That's why I have, and carry, several short USB type A, male to female, jumper cables. Jumper cable sources: 1 foot (33 cm) cables from Merit Line. 7.5 inch (19 cm) cables from Cyber Guys. 4Good card reader My Dell card reader in the computer is dying a horrible death. After much searching, I can only purchase a used/reconditioned card reader unit that has the same life expectancy as my old one and that is not very good. I need a reader that is more dependable than that.I Purchased this portable unit as an alternative to the above. It came blister packed with minimal instruction, being plug-n-play compatible for Windows XP Home. The first time I connected it, the computer would not recognize the reader. The second time gave me an error message. After a reboot, reinserted the reader worked just fine. It reads SD, SDHC and Micro-SD cards without any problems.The convenience of having this reader with SDHC capability available to me anywhere I go is great.*****11/21/2011 - UpdateHaving this card reader for over 1 1/2 years now, it continues to work perfectly. The latest computer I'm using it with is a 2005 Apple iBook running Tiger (OS X 10.4.11). Plug and play with SDHC cards with this iBook.I have also used it with Linux Mint 10 KDE (based on Ubuntu 10.10) - it too is plug and play on an older P4 desktop system.A versatile SD/SDHC/Micro SD card reader that works flawlessly across multiple operating systems. What more can you ask for. 5A fabulous little gadget for the price The Transcend memory card reader is the niftiest little gadget I've come across in awhile. The memory card fits into a slot on the side of the unit that then plugs into a USB port. This has saved me time and energy in several respects:* I no longer have to crawl under my desk to find the SD slot on my desktop computer, as I can plug the Transcend reader into the USB hub on my desk instead* I no longer have to hunt down cables to connect equipment that uses SDHC cards. Although my desktop computer's 6-in-1 reader doesn't read SDHC, these 16 GB SDHC cards are easily read with the Transcend readerThere are a few disadvantages to the unit, not a dealbreaker for me but you should be aware if you are planning on purchasing:* the cap for the USB plug is not secured to the unit and could get lost* If you are looking for a reader compatible with any of the Sony Memory Stick cards (Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo, etc), you'll have to do some more searching on Amazon. There is no support for this type of card on the Transcend.For what it does and the price, this is a fantastic, reliable little unit. I highly recommend picking one up! 5Reasonably fast - great value for the price Speed is pretty good but not stellar - Using BlackMagicDesign's Disk Speed Test utility under MacOS it transfers from a Transcend 16GB Class 10 SDHC card at about 19/16 MB/Sec R/W, compared to 20.5/18 MB/Sec R/W for the same card plugged into the SD card reader in my monitor and connected over USB2.0 (No speed difference was detected when plugged into a USB hub vs dedicated mobo USB port.)This thing doesn't seem to suffer some of the mechanical issues plaguing other similar-form-factor SD card readers, like the SanDisk Mobilemate, which accept cards inserted into a side slot. On the Transcend an SD card fits snuggly in the slot and there doesn't seem to be a possibility for under- or over-shoot of the edge connectors on the card. Likewise, the USB connector fits snugly into all the USB ports I've tried it in, with no loose fit or wiggling as has been reported for some others.Micro-SD cards were not quite as good of a fit and it took some fooling around to get them inserted and seated properly. One important aspect to note is that the Micro-SD card are inserted with the OPPOSITE ORIENTATION to (upside down relative to) regular SD cards. The unit does not accept Mini-SD cards without an adapter up to standard SD. 4Stylish versatile card reader with USB2.0 data transfer rates The small form factor makes the P5 a stylish accessory in my digital camera case. The P5 permits me to transfer SDHC memory card data from my digital camera at USB2.0 rates. It has a sleek stylish look. No cables are needed with the P5.Since another reviewer indicated this P5 card reader transfers data only at USB1.1 (700-900 KB/sec) rates and not at USB2.0 (12-15 MB/sec) rates, I conducted the following transfer speed demonstrations.I used a Transcend SDHC (16 GB) flash memory card loaded with 1.13 GB of files (3 MPEG-4 clips ~ 300MB each, 24 JPEG ~ 1 MB each). If reading this amount of data through the Transcend card reader works only at USB1.1 rates, then reading these files should take about 19 minutes. If it reads data at USB2.0 rates, then reading these files should take between 1-2 minutes. For this test, the data transfer from the SDHC through the P5 to a macbook pro took right at 60 seconds. This translates into 18.8 MB/sec average transfer rate for reading. Clearly, the Transcend P5 Card reader is capable of USB2.0 high-speed data transfers.After deleting the files on the SDHC memory card, I timed how long it took to write 1.13 GB (same set of files) from the macbook pro back to the memory card. For this second test, the write transfer time for 1.13GB was 105 seconds. This translates into 10.7 MB/sec average transfer rate for writing. Clearly, the Transcend P5 Card reader is capable of USB2.0 high-speed data transfers in either direction.Why buy: The USB interface permits this card reader to be compatible with nearly every computer on the planet. The P5 fits easily in my digital camera case. Transfer speed is great! 5Works well with SDHC Class 10 cards as well as micro SDHC Using a Transcend 32 GB Ultimate Speed SDHC Class 10 Flash Memory Card TS32GSDHC10 and Check Flash 1.15.1 on a Dell e6500 laptop, I'm seeing14.5 MB/s write17.3 MB/s read(Class 10 is 10 MB/s)Using a Transcend 8 GB Class 6 microSDHC Flash Memory Card TS8GUSDHC6 with the same test11.3 MB/s write14.1 MB/s read(Class 6 is 6 MB/s)The micro SDHC is nicely retained by the unit (I do like the elago Mobile Nano II USB 2.0 microSDHC Flash Memory Card Reader (Black) for micro-SDHC-only use, which provides very comparable speeds).It works well on my MacMini as well as assorted FreeBSD and Ubuntu boxes.My only "complaint" is that the cap will eventually get lost -- but I don't know any that have solved that problem well.You can't ask for much more than that, especially at this price. 5
