Card reader provides versatile, portable data transfer solution.

Many years ago, I lamented about not having a portable SD card reader for my laptop. The more I worked with digital cameras, the more cards I collected. Since that time, I’ve picked up one or two, card readers, but they are slow by today’s standards and their technology is outdated. I’ve wanted an updated portable card reader for sometime and today, I’m happy to be reviewing the Type-C and USB 3.0 Card Reader by Satechi.

SATECHI Type-C and USB 3.0 Card Reader REVIEW

Satechi makes some top-notch accessories for Apple products and I’m really glad to be able to look at another of their products. This USB card reader is unique because it is dual purpose – USB-C and USB 3.0. There aren’t USB-C accessories in the market that double up with a standard USB connector and vice versa. Satechi did a really nice job of designing a veritale, stylish product with this card reader.

The device itself is finished in aluminum. It’s built to withstand daily use. It comes in four color options – gold, rose gold, silver, and space gray – to match the Apple laptop finishes. There are two input options – SD and Micro SD cards. To use the reader, you simply plug it into your computer and then plug an SD card into it. The card will appear on your desktop as a drive and you can browse it and its files as you normally would.

SATECHI Type-C and USB 3.0 Card Reader REVIEW

The card reader is blazing fast. It features USB 3.0 transfer speeds and I’ve been able to transfer large files within a matter of minutes. I actually transfered about 50 photos in about 10 seconds. The Type-C and USB 3.0 Card Reader is compact and travels really well. It’s very easy to carry with you wherever you go. I’ve been very happy with the card reader’s performance and think it will hold up very well. I would actually recommend this option over other options because of its versatility between USB-C and USB 3.0.
