Whether you need to copy photos from your camera's memory card or put some music on a microSD card for your smartphone or MP3 player, using a memory card reader is easier than getting tangled about with cables. The Kingston MobileLite G3 memory card reader is one of the least expensive and most convenient card readers around. I've been using the Kingston MobileLite G2 for years and decided to finally upgrade to G3 for USB 3.0 and SDXC compatibility.

PROS:
- Small and portable
- Sliding covers for protection when not in use
- USB 3.0
- Compatible with SDXC and microSDXC

CONS:
- Build quality not as good as G2

PACKAGING & CONTENTS
The MobileLite G3 comes in a blister pack with a mini lanyard attached. The only documentation that comes with it lists card and OS compatability. There's also a simple diagram, displaying how the ends slide in and out and where to insert the cards.

DESIGN
I've tried several different types of memory card readers and other than internal card readers, I find the MobileLite G series of card readers to be the most convenient. The G3, like the older G2, has two card slots on one end (SD/SDHC/SDXC and microSD/microSDHC/microSDXC).

The other end of the G3 has the USB plug. Both ends have sliding covers for protection when not in use. It makes traveling with the G3 pretty easy; you can just throw the G3 in your pocket or bag and off you go.

The G3's design is identical to the G2's, which is a good thing. The only difference between them, design-wise, is the color scheme. Both card readers also have a faint blue activity light as well.

I've greatly enjoyed this product so far!!! My only concern is the lack of thought in when sliding the cover back and forth. I do wish it was more stable but regardless no problems!!! Props for the designers at Kingston!!!

I purchased this card reader and also the U Speed USB 3.0 reader. The big advantage to this Kingston reader is that it support simultaneous use of both an SD card and a micro SD card, the U Speed does not.

I was looking for a good product to act like a flash drive with my own micro SD card and this looked like a solid product with USB 3.0 compatibility which was a nice plus. But the quality really feels just cheap. The plastic feels thin and flimsy, and the sliding design is very underwhelming. When I first got it out of the package, I was really disappointed. The collapsible parts wiggle in the extended position which feels like it's about to fall apart the entire time.

Also, when collapsed, the micro SD card doesn't fit entirely inside (why, I have no idea), and so it seems prone to leaving the SD card in a position to break off. And like I said, since the extended part feels flimsy (and retracts too easily), it never feels solid or secure.

Also, the design is so much chunkier than necessary in all directions and won't work well with something plugged in the other USB slot of the pair. Pretty disappointing quality all around.

I tried a kumputerbay adapter first and it was trash. Arrived DOA. Luckily Amazon has a great return system. This one from Kingston works perfectly. I'm using it with a class 10 64GB SDXC Flash Memory Card to transfer files between computers and it is screaming fast! The sleeve on either side slides in or out to expose or cover the usb connector and the memory card. Nice for protecting the connector during travel. The case is a bit thicker than other usb adapters. If you have a small cavity on your pc where your usb devices plug in this may be a tight fit so you may want to order a usb extension cable with it.
Highly recommended!

This card reader works, and is very fast. I easily hit maximum capable read speeds with a Sandisk Extreme MicroSD; which was about four and a half times faster than with a USB 2.0 card reader.

The problem is that it has this weird collapsible case design that feels cheap and is completely unnecessary, also making it HUGE; much bigger than it needs to be. I could not get it to fit into any of my front USB ports, and it blocked others in the back of my computer.

Stick to a side-load reader; a rear-load reader like this one is going to have to be at least as wide as an SDcard, and it's likely to block other ports, much less even fit. I threw this in a drawer and am using the Transcend USB 3.0 SD/MicroSD card reader instead, which is just as fast and less money.

This card reader is USB 3.0 compatible, is fast, has drivers built into windows and holds 2 cards (1 microSD, 1 SD) accepts large size and many formats of SD cards (SD, SDHC, SDXD, etc). The outer shell can be expanded to cover the cards and the USB plug for protection during transports, etc. Has a blue micro L.E.D. to indicate activity. Especially useful when transferring data from one memory card to another (ie. mobile phone, camera, etc.)

Love this card reader. Easy to use, compact, stable / tight connections, very good read / write specifications. Used the reader on 2.0 & 3.0 USB ports on my laptop and desktop. Computers had no issues with the reader. I would recommend this reader to anyone needing a well engineered and rugged card reader.
