5.0 out of 5 stars Must have tool in your mobile arsenal
By Silvana D. on March 10, 2014
I bought this to transfer data from a 64GB SanDisk micro SD card to a 64GB Transcend micro SD card newly installed in my BlackBerry Z30. I paired it with a StarTech USB to USB OTG host adapter. This sucker is F*A*S*T. It quickly transfered over 26GB of music, 4 GB of photos and a bunch of other stuff. The phone immediately sees the USB connection and the SD data is accessible via file manager. I then popped my camera's SD card in to copy the photos I took of the setup over to the phone (uploaded for this review). Needless to say it worked great on a PC too.

Tiny Powerhouse should be its name.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes my fastest cards run 50% faster - even from an USB 2.0 port
By NLee the Engineer on May 7, 2013
I have been using several USB 2.0 card readers in the past, including the [[ASIN:B0011EAYO6 Transcend M5 Multi-Card Reader]] and [[ASIN:B002PX99D4 Sandisk Mobilemate SD Plus Memory Card Reader]]. With memory cards getting faster over the years, I started to get the feeling that my old card readers are limiting the Read/Write speed of my newer memory cards. That's why I purchased this [[ASIN:B009D79VH4 Transcend Information USB 3.0 Card Reader (TS-RDF5K)]] just to try it out, even through all my computers only have USB 2.0 ports.

Upon arrival of the RDF5, I benchmarked over one dozen of my SDHC and microSDHC memory cards, with speed rating from class-4 to class-10 and UHS-1. The program I used is called "CrystalDiskMark v3.01 x64". It reports, among other things, sequential READ and WRITE speed of memory cards. To my surprise, several of my fastest cards showed about 50% improvement in Read/Write speed compared to when using the old M5 card reader.

As an example: for the [[ASIN:B007X7U224 HP CG790A-AZ 32 GB Flash Memory Card Class 10 SDHC]] I was previously getting 19.6MB/s in Write and 20.1MB/s in Read. But when used with the RDF5, its throughput jumped 50% to 29.7 and 34.8MB/s, respectively. The [[ASIN:B008CVHLT2 Transcend 32 GB Class 10 UHS Flash Memory Card TS32GSDHC10U1E]] also shows nearly identical improvement.

The above proves that using old card reader was the bottleneck for my fastest cards. On the other hand, improvements for my slower cards were less noticeable, typically around 5% or less. That include [[ASIN:B004TS1IG4 Kingston class-4 SD10G2/16GB]], [[ASIN:B001ECQVTM Transcend Class 6 TS16GSDHC6E]], etc. See the summary of benchmark results I uploaded to 'Customer Images' section for details.

The only negative about this RDF5 card reader is that: it does not allow simultaneous usage of both SDHC and microSDHC slots. That is, you can only insert one card at a time, but never both.

Conclusion:
I am very happy with the dramatic improvement I can achieve with this card reader, even when it is connected to an USB 2.0 port. Once I upgrade to a new computer with USB 3.0 ports, I expect the benchmark results to be even better - at least for my fastest cards. In the mean time, I consider this card reader the cheapest computer upgrade I can recommend.

[Update on Dec 26, 2013]
I finally have a computer with USB 3.0 port, so I re-tested ~10 memory cards to see the difference.
- For any card marketed as 'UHS-1', I observed huge improvements in both Read and Write speeds.
- For any card marketed as 'class 10' but not UHS, I may see some increase in Read, but very little difference in Wrire.

Bottom Line: If you have an UHS-1 card, make sure to use the RDF5 card reader in conjunction with USB 3.0 port, in order to get the full benefit.

USB3.0のポートに挿し込み計測した結果、
「Transcend マイクロSDカード 128GB UHS-I U3対応」(TS128GUSD300S-AE)や、
「Transcend マイクロSDカード 64GB UHS-I Class10」(Transcend マイクロSDカード 64GB UHS-I Class10)が、
「SanDisk サンディスク ウルトラ microSDHCカード 32GB UHS-I 」(SDSDQUL-032G-EPK)と同等で、
製品規格の「転送速度 : 読込最大95MB/s」の50%にも満たない!!
USB2.0のポートで計測してもさほど速度の違いがないので、USB3.0には未対応と思われる。
念のため他のパソコン(Win10/NEC)にて計測しても同様の結果となった。

これは、ELECOMのUSB2.0対応のカードリーダー(中国製)と比べやや早いだけ、
レビューを見ると、2019年以降は「USB3.0」のロゴのないものを発送しているようだが・・・・、
「USB3.0」のロゴ付きの旧タイプ?を購入された方のレビューを見ると計測値が速く、
ロゴがないものは、やはり「USB2.0」相当の製品であろうか!!
製品パッケージには、「USB 3.1 Gen1」の記載があり別物と思われる。
*「USB 3.1 Gen1」は上位企画の筈ですが??

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent card reader
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 12, 2015
I have two of these and the first one is great, the second one initially wouldn't accept a micro SD card because the card would not push all the way into the slot.
After trying several cards I managed to find one that was a slightly better fit and after a few minutes managed to coax the other cards in too.

These are fairly well built but do flex a little as you pinch them, the cap latches nicely so isn't going to fall off.

You do need to observe which way your USB slot is oriented because full size SD cards will need clearance, you could always get a USB 90 degree adapter though.

It will only operate with 1 card inserted at a time.

The usb ID is: 8564:4000
