Excellent 4-Slot USB-C Card Reader

By: jrh856324 - 11/21/2018
I have been in the AV/IT Integration space for over 30 years. I found this unit easy to setup and use on my Microsoft and Apple devices. The card reader supports a wide variety of SD cards: SD (Secure Digital), SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) and SDXC (Secure Digital Extended Capacity). It also supports UHS cards, and is backward compatible with older SD card versions. I like the packaging of both the USB-C to USB-C and USB-A to USB-C cables so that the unit is ready to use with virtually any computer. The reader supports connection speeds of up to 10Gbps, which allows extremely fast transfer rates between the computer and the reader, while simultaneously accessing all four cards. The unit installs quickly with no additional drivers or software required, and is compatible with a variety of operating systems, which I tested. What is Included: 1 - SD Card Reader 1 - USB-C to USB-C Cable 1 - USB-A to USB-C Cable 1 - Universal Power Adapter 1 - Quick Start Guide Note: “I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.”

Fastest external reader/writer but needs power

By: Nick_181 - 12/06/2018
Speed. Best thing to say about this device! Accessing multiple SD cards of differing types, this device still pegged them all at their max speeds. Having access to multiple cards at once is convenient too. Was able to "burn" 4 different Raspbian cards at once, copy images between camera cards and photo-frame cards, etc. No more swapping cards back and forth. The DOWNside to this device is the external power requirement. As such this won't be my go-to mobile card reader, and instead will be attached to the workspace. Build is solid, consistent with Startech.com hardware designs, so it fits into the workspace with other devices. The box includes USB-C to USB-C and USB-C to USB-A cables, and worked just fine plugged into a USB2.0 port (just don't expect full speeds!) I have to say that the "locking" slots are a nice touch. For anyone that's ever accidentally bumped a card loose, had an external reader slide off the table, etc. during a long read or write.... The click-release style of slot is just THAT much more convenient. So other than the external power need, this device is perfect for it's calling. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Fast and convenient!

By: ShawnO_18 - 12/29/2018
The ability to load 4 SD cards and access them simultaniously is a godsend. Perfect for writing images to SD cards in bulk. Also great when pulling family images off everyone's devices at once and backing them to more permanent storage locations. The need for the external power supply is obvious and is really the only negative for this device. The inclusion of cabling is an added perk. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.
