Top Customer Reviews
Since another reviewer indicated this P5 card reader transfers data only at USB1.1 (700-900 KB/sec) rates and not at USB2.0 (12-15 MB/sec) rates, I conducted the following transfer speed demonstrations.
I used a Transcend SDHC (16 GB) flash memory card loaded with 1.13 GB of files (3 MPEG-4 clips ~ 300MB each, 24 JPEG ~ 1 MB each). If reading this amount of data through the Transcend card reader works only at USB1.1 rates, then reading these files should take about 19 minutes. If it reads data at USB2.0 rates, then reading these files should take between 1-2 minutes. For this test, the data transfer from the SDHC through the P5 to a macbook pro took right at 60 seconds. This translates into 18.8 MB/sec average transfer rate for reading. Clearly, the Transcend P5 Card reader is capable of USB2.0 high-speed data transfers.
After deleting the files on the SDHC memory card, I timed how long it took to write 1.13 GB (same set of files) from the macbook pro back to the memory card. For this second test, the write transfer time for 1.13GB was 105 seconds. This translates into 10.7 MB/sec average transfer rate for writing. Clearly, the Transcend P5 Card reader is capable of USB2.0 high-speed data transfers in either direction.
Why buy: The USB interface permits this card reader to be compatible with nearly every computer on the planet. The P5 fits easily in my digital camera case. Transfer speed is great!
After saving more than a thousand image files from my SDHC card, I really like this card reader. The size and shape are almost identical to a USB flash drive, and it weighs less than an ounce, so it's as portable as it gets.
Pros: seems to work well on low power USB ports (I have a 4-port adapter that chronically complains about power overload when using other USB sticks; no complaints from the system with this reader.)
Memory Cards (SD and microSD specifically) are easy to insert and remove from this reader.
System is able to rapidly detect and read the directory, in contrast to some USB sticks that seem to take forever.
Well manufactured and sturdy.
Con: (Minor) Stick has about the same dimensions of older and conventional USB sticks that seem fatter, meaning if you have several USB ports close together, you will not have sufficient room to insert a USB cable in an adjacent port.
