I don't use SD or MicroSD cards much any more like I did in college, but when my girlfriend's Android freaked out and corrupted her entire Micro SD card (I think that's what it was), I told her to let me borrow it. Using this card reader, I was able to plug her Micro SD into my computer, and, with the card still in the reader, ran a data recovery program that rebuilt all her photos that weren't corrupted. The reader got warm from the process (file recovery takes a couple hours and strains the drive that the data is on), but this little guy held in there like a pro. My girlfriend ended up not losing a single file.
Like I said, I don't use card readers very often any more, but this is one of those things that I feel like everyone should have in case of an emergency, like needing to download photos after a digital camera's computer cable is lost, or when you need to get files off an Android. It's less than $10, and it's worth it to have one if and when it's needed right away.
I've had good experience with the brand (Anker) in the past as well. They have really small, minimalistic packaging, but they also don't seem too "businesslike" as a company. At my old job we purchased several "4-Port Aluminum USB 3.0 Hubs", one for every web designer and web developer, since plugging hard drives and flash drives in and out was necessary many times per day. I don't recall ever having issues with any of them.
Anyway, I'm actually going to go browse their other products now haha. Hope my review helped!
Tried to get a return the day after arrival and found it was marked as non-refundable by Anker. Luckily it was shipped by Amazon and they were able to give me a full refund anyway. Still, as both the seller and maker of the product, Anker should have taken responsibility for their product and I should not have needed to relay on Amazon, a third party, to get a refund on a clearly defective product.
My later investigation showed that the older reader was not compliant with SDXC format. This is why I did not see exFAT formatting option (and size larger than 32 GB) in the Windows formatting options. So I, naturally, went to Amazon.com and ordered this SDXC-compliant card reader.
However, my Windows 10 still showed 32GB for the 64GB card even with this SDXC-compliant reader. This is where I called Anker support.
After a short wait, Ashley from support started investigating the situation. Pretty quickly she found a link to SanDisk Knowledge Article about recovering "lost" memory from the card and emailed it to me. I downloaded the formatter from SanDisk and re-formatted the card to 59+ GB.
I have bought Anker products in the past, but had not called their support. Now I feel pretty comfortable troubleshoot any issues -- their support is fo premium quality!
P.S. If you are wondering why the 64GB card's actual size is just 59+ GB, Google this question for a detailed explanation. The gist is that Windows "interprets" "kilo" in "kilobyte" as the exponent value for the base of 2 rather than it's metric system's meaning as 1000 bytes. Following the same logic, it interprets Gigabyte to mean 2^30, i.e. 1024x1024x1024 = 1073741824 bytes.
At the same time, SanDIsk interprets "Giga" according to metric system, and it's 64GB = 64,000,000,000 bytes. If you divide this value by 2^30, you will get 59.6 GB in the Microsoft system of measurement.

I use the SanDisk Extreme Pro 128 GB card to test SD card speeds: https://amzn.to/32l3DXF
Always test transfer speeds on a USB 3.0 Port (blue USB port) especially if you have an SD card that claims very high read and write speeds. If you plug this card reader into a black USB 2.0 port, you will be disappointed and think the product is defective.
Second tip, when you insert your SD card, you have to insert it upside down so that the logo of the card is facing the ground. When you insert your micro SD card, that is inserted regularly, however.
You can see the transfer speeds I achieved using this SD card reader paired with the SanDisk Extreme Pro 128 GB card. This card is rated for 95 mb/s so getting 82 to 88 is good enough for me to take burst photos and 4K video using the Sony A7iii.
Works right out of the box, great product!
If my review and photos helped, please consider giving me a helpful vote, thanks : )
I had tested with a 256GB SanDisk Extreme Pro and an older external USB 3.0 SSD. The SD card shows spec transfer speed at ~90MB/s using this reader at the "good" USB 3.0/3.1 ports. However, at other ports, the speed falls to 40MB/s. To make sure there is no issue with the USB ports, I tested them with the external SSD, which yieided 385MB/s transfer rate, showing the ports are fine.
So my conclusion on this product is that while it may have worked well for other purchasers, it may be struggling with the latest PC hardware I own. If you are like me and have a new AMD build, you have to be aware that this reader might not work well on all the USB ports. Hopefully Anker might release a firmware update to fix this issue.
