      Good for what it does

      This SD card reader is perfect for what its intended to do: read SD cards, both regular and micro sized. It's decent sized, only slightly bigger than the average USB stick, and it has a cap for when it's being transported. My two complaints is that one: The cap won't attach to the back end like a pen, so it kinda just hangs there. It gets in the way of my other USB slots sometimes. And two: It can't read both a regular and micro SD card at the same time. I realize now that it says that on the package and if I recall, on the online page as well but I'm still a little fussy over it. It's not a huge deal for me, as I don't need it to read more than one at a time most the time. It just would've been a nice feature. I'd still recommend it anyway. It does its job with no issues.

      Perfect for my needs

      I didn''t know why my class 10 SD cards kept getting corrupted. When I Googled this problem, I came across a forum where somebody said the cause was the card reader. That never occurred to me but since mine was really old, I decided to get a new one. Thankfully, Best Buy has reasonably priced readers and I picked this one because it's USB 3 (although my MBP has USB 2) and small. So far, so good, and no corrupted cards. I'd have given this 5 stars if not for the flimsy belt loop which I'm almost sure will break at some point but it's not a deal-breaker for me. I thought of getting the $20 reader which has a slot for CF but I highly doubt I'll have a gadget that uses it.

      Even though downloading pics from a camera to a computer is supposed to be easy, let's admit the error messages and running "thinking" circle can get annoying - especially in a hurry. I don't always have time or patience for that. So I got this to use in those crucial moments for business. So glad I did. Best time saver ever. Only problem is how it plugs into computer. I can't have any other drives plugged in at the same time to the right side of the drive because of it's design. Also, if you have a unit that has a flip panel that protects the area for portable plug-ins, this device will not work. So be sure you know your hardware layout before purchase.

      As I mention in another BB review for an SD card, I sent my mother some large files (photos) via SD card through "snail mail" because it was the most logistically efficient thing to do at the time. To sweeten the deal, I also sent her this card reader, which apparently saved the day--she said she had been using a printer to access flash storage cards, but for some reason that suddenly quit working, and this handy-dandy device came to the rescue. May have something to do with the fact that she's using Macs, I don't know, but I CAN tell you that this Insignia Memory Card reader DID work on her Mac! So there you go. Get you one.

      I purchased this device to be able to transfer files off of a micro SD card directly to my phone which is a Galaxy S9 Plus. I use the OTG adapter and it works perfectly. I can access files on a MicroSD or a regular SD card. They can also be used on any Windows device. In case you were wondering you cannot use both MicroSD and regular SD ports at the same time. I'm not saying that I actually tried it I'm letting you know that it does not work. This device is really handy especially if you have a device that does not have an SD or MicroSD slot.

      I purchased this so I could read my SD cards away from my laptop. I can hook it up to my cell phone with an adapter which enables me to get to my cards anywhere. The care reader holds the SD & the micro SD cards although you can load them you cannot open them both at the same time. This is also a 3.0 which is faster than the 2.0 I can transfer files to/from my phone but I have not yet tried that feature. This is also cool to have when visiting because you can hook it up to any acceptable device to get to your files so you don't have to lug around your laptop.

      New lap top without the card reader. Had problems with the on-line photo transfer site (Canon). Never available when I had work to complete (transferring photos from camera to web site). Went into Best Buy with 2/3 possible readers. The tech at Geek Squad reviewed my choices, removed one that was not appropriate for my needs, and suggested the one that was the least expensive. Bought it, took it home and the rest is history-Works, easy, no problems, and I can use it 24 hours a day, no waiting for a person to answer an email or phone.

      Seems faster than internal laptop card reader

      I purchased the USB 3.0 Insignia Memory Card Reader for moving Digital Photographs. My laptop does have a SD card slot that can be used for MicroSD cards also, but with having 1000’s+ pictures I needed something that I could use if there was a possible failure with the laptop internal card reader and was small for travel. I didn’t check the actual transfer speed, but the Insignia card reader does seem to be faster than my internal card reader. I would definitely purchase again.
