..this is my 3rd UNITEK Multi-in-1 Micro SD Card Reader Adapter, the 1st, Simply Stopped Working, the 2nd, the Housing Broke Apart/Open, I then Filled it with Epoxy, put it back together and it works as expected, the 3rd is a Back-Up until i can find a better designed replacement.. I Do use it frequently and it does work as advertised, IF UniTek would Beef-Up the Housing and Build a USB3 (USB2 Compatible) Version I have no Doubt it would be a Big Seller and a 5-Star Winner..

I have had usb c with my samsung s8 for a while without the need for a usb c adapter but when I got a new work laptop that has a usb c thunderbolt port, 2 usb 3.0 ports and NO SD CARD READER SLOT (lenovo yoga 720) I knew I would need a usb c type adapter so that would leave the usb 3.0 ports for external hard drives and with no sd card slot I would need another way to move files on and off sd/microSD cards and so I figured I would get a nice little usb c adapter and came across this double sided one that also works with regular usb size ports. I tested both the usb c and the regular usb with a 64GB uhs1 samsung microSD card and both worked perfectly. It has a blue light that shows its connected (with the type c port you can reverse it and not see the blue light if you dont want to see it). I tested it out on my samsung galaxy s8 plus' usb c port and it worked fine. The caps stay on tight enough but over time I think many of us who bought this one might lose the caps, so I would have preferred a retractable type of reader where the male ends retract back into the base but this is not a deal breaker as you dont really need the caps except for looks, the ends seem stable enough to not worry about not having them covered all the time in your pocket or a backpack. So far so good, but only time will tell as I would say 75% of the card readers ive purchased usually fail/die/quit working within a year or 2 max, some I have had dead on arrival, some have lasted 2-3 months and I still have 2 that have lasted me almost 2 years, its kinda a crap shoot with these things. If it ever fails I will report back on my review but so far it seems to be well built, durable and works as described. I have included the pics showing it connected and my 64GB microSD card working in windows 10.

USB-C is the connection of the future and it’s great to see devices using it now. I love that it’s reversible and so fast. I have been using the Unitek USB-C card reader to move photos from my Canon DSLR to my Dell XPS-13 computer quickly. I love that it can use two different formats at a time so I can stick in my Compact Flash and SD card at once, read or write to both without unplugging the reader. The White activity LED is pretty bright and flashes a lot when moving images. This meets all my requirements and is fast. Fit and finish for it are good and it’s been reliable over the week I have been using it so far.

Pretty simple product works very well- fast and no fuss with my new mac book pro. I wanted to say though that in the box is a thank you card from Unitek. Nothing fancy but it was still pretty nice to see. I get it its a bog company they toss it in the box but the simple fact that as a company they had the idea.- they aproved it- found someone to print it and made a policy to put it in the darn box.

Simple right? Actually it isn’t I work for a big multi national and I know how this stuff works and I like that they did this because in 2018, I can’t remember the last time that a company did that and I dig it. I’ll keep an eye out and if I see something I need that they make I’ll buy it. Very nice touch Unitek nicely done

So far, so good. I have a new MacBook Pro (June2017) that has only USB-C. I usually take my laptop when I travel and when I take pictures, I need to have a way to transfer those image files to my laptop, or to a portable drive (via my computer). This works great so far, seems solidly built and gets the job done. I still wish the new MBP had an SD card slot, but this allows me to also load CF cards - a plus.

I finally took this out of the package (after the return window of course), just plugged it in, put a card in, and it doesn't do ANYTHING. It also doesn't come with any instructions or anything. It feels super cheap too. I can't figure out how to make it work, or if it's just totally broken. Ugh. Would not recommend. So bummed. UPDATE: I just removed my SD card and it's all scratched up. And yes, I put it in the right way. It is JUNK. Do not buy. Seriously the worst thing I've ever bought on Amazon. I will be throwing it out. I wish I could still return it. I remember reading these reviews and thinking... well, I have an 80% chance of it working, but now I'm just worried I almost lost 100s of amazing photos I took in Japan trying to get this thing to work.

My husband swears by his android.. However, as much as he loves his Samsung, he doesn't love that the memory fills up so quickly. He's constantly taking videos of our son with his phone and this allows him to easily transfer them from his phone to his laptop so that the memory on his phone can stay clear.

I upgraded (and I'm using the term loosely) to a Galaxy Note 5 from a Note 3 and to my surprise (okay so it's my fault for assuming it would actually BE an upgrade), there is no internal capability for increasing storage (a micro card slot) inside the phone. So, I needed to buy an external device to accommodate my needs; this little Reader works great. It's small and unobtrusive; would not be something that you could leave plugged into the phone of course (unless you are really, really careful - plugs into the charging jack), but it does the job nicely.

I didn't use SD cards much before i got my quadcopter but since then I keep this little card reader on me all the time. Its great and more strudy than others i've had. It hasn't broken in my pocket after a few weeks so that's a pretty good run in my experience. I get lots of comments on how cool it is and it does honestly make my phone feel more powerful since i can skip the computer for yet another task. One thing is don't leave it plugged into your phone for extended periods of time when you're not using it. I did this yesterday and the thing got very, very hot. I let it cool and both the card and the reader are fine but just a word of warning.

Cleverly designed product. microSD card fits into the full-sized USB end thus saving space. Works well with a Samsung Pro 64GB card (80MBps+, NTFS formatted). If you need to transfer lots of GB at a time, I recommend having a second microSD reader that offers USB 3.0, otherwise you'll be transferring at USB 2.0 speeds -- potentially an hour or more. Having a blinking transfer light is both good and bad. I like that I can see the device working and the pace of the transfers. I don't like it blinking when I've plugged it into my Windows 8.1 tablet to watch a movie. I'm watching Blu-Ray ISO rips off the microSD watching on my HP Stream 7 tablet. Works great.
