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!
I used this to read and recover erased files, which I had accidently deleted from my camera's memory card. As long as you DON'T record files over the erased files or format the memory card, you can in most cases recover deleted files. I found a very nice completely FREE program called "RECUVA" that I downloaded and used to recover my pics. I highly recommend this if you have deleted or erased files and you need to recover them.
[I found many other programs that were advertised as "free", but in fact would only show you the deleted files, not recover them; you had to go online and buy the activation code or license key at $30 to $60, depending on the program, to actually use their software. Not so with RECUVA]
14.5 MB/s write
17.3 MB/s read
(Class 10 is 10 MB/s)
Using a Transcend 8 GB Class 6 microSDHC Flash Memory Card TS8GUSDHC6 with the same test
11.3 MB/s write
14.1 MB/s read
(Class 6 is 6 MB/s)
The micro SDHC is nicely retained by the unit (I do like the elago Mobile Nano II USB 2.0 microSDHC Flash Memory Card Reader (Black) for micro-SDHC-only use, which provides very comparable speeds).
It works well on my MacMini as well as assorted FreeBSD and Ubuntu boxes.
My only "complaint" is that the cap will eventually get lost -- but I don't know any that have solved that problem well.
You can't ask for much more than that, especially at this price.

Why yes! It remembers my data much better than I do.
Great for all sorts of jobs like sharing photos, music or backing up some important data.
So far so good. Like that the cards point perpendicular to the stick. On my computer tower, the USB plugs run on an angled vertical orientation in the front. Read morePublished 3 months ago by ABQMomma
