    Does what it is supposed to do

    Works fine on my Window 10 and 7 systems. Transfer rates are acceptable. Seems to be decently built. The only drawbacks are no attachment point for a lanyard and the flimsy silicone rubber strap for the cap. I can see that won't last long, Plus you have to put up with the cap dangling around awkwardly. A nub to store the cap at the end opposite the connector would be preferable. Finally ejecting drive in Windows means you have to unplug and plug the reader back in order to swap cards safely. For these reasons I rate this as only three stars.

    Did not walk me through like I was told it would. You don't have a choice but to buy it since new laptops don't have SD slots. I had to go to the store to see how to use it and then came home and it didn't work that way for me.

    Does the Job

    This works for every kind of SD card and does the job well. The problem is that my laptop has a broken slot so I thought I could use this to access 2 SD cards at once. Even though there are 2 inserted, you can only access 1 at a time.

    Sometimes my PC (Windows 10) will detect it..other times it doesn't. I don't think it's my PC since I connect other USB devices without any issues. Not sure I can recommend. Works when it connects though.

    The card reader is decent. It works as advertised but I dinged 2 stars because my prior one stopped working. I only had it a year and it refused to read any cards inserted. I give it a average meh.

    This was versatile but if plugged directly into my MacBook Pro it obscured the other ports some. Changed for a unit that had a lead to plug in with.

    Computer works fine until I put a sd card in the reader. Once o do so, my computer freezes. May be a separate issue but it only started with this reader.

    Just does what it is suppose to. I bought it for my new Mac book pro touchbar but it does not fit the new MacBooks so you need a adapter

    New desktops do not come with built in readers for the most part so this solves that problem adequately

    This viewer did not work to expectations. It would not read the card we were wanting to see.

    This reader is fair good for the price. I was hoping it would transfer files more quickly.

    It was confusing as to how to make it work with my computer. Hopefully will go smoother as I get more familiar with it.

    It is a good portable micro sd and sd card reader that you can take anywhere. It was less than 15 USD
