    Does what it does

    The transfer speeds are INSANELY FAST!!! That's all it does though. If you don't need to dump footage THAT quickly I would just plug the camera up to the computer with the USB - C 3.1 speed cable the camera came with and you're still getting between 100MB/s and 120MB/s. Also can read SD cards which helps I guess. Built sturdy.

    Speedy and dependable

    Excellent design and sturdy build. This device was my very next purchase with with my new MacBook Pro. I do a lot of photo work with Drone and DSLR. So with the USB C interface, this was a must. It is speedy with card access and far better priced than any Apple offering.

  • Review by Tidge, 10 out of 10
    Used for USB-on-the-go with my Moto phone

    I use devices like this to connect external media (audio, video) to my phone (via the charging port) without having to have the files loaded directly to my device. I've also used it to transfer files (in a pinch) between devices. It should work fine on tablets with a USB-C connector.

    Just a heads-up: Using USB-on-the-go (USB-OTG) does require power from the device itself, so leaving a device like this plugged in will drain batteries. It is possible to use specialty cables to provide power while such a device is connected, if this is an issue.

    This unit is fast, reliable and minimal. I used it to get videos downloaded from canon 5D Mark 4 and it worked flawlessly. These days it's kind of hard to find laptops with SD card slots, hence the reason I bought this unit. It's easy to toss in the backpack.

    Works great

    I bought this product because I have a SanDisk 32MG Card and needed a way to transfer photos onto my Mac Mini.

    I popped the card into the slot in the Platinum Card Reader and the camera comes right up in reader on my Mac. It was easy to locate all the pictures on the card. The only thing is you have to manually drag the photos to your Mac ... but that's not that big a deal for me. This product was exactly what I was looking for. I recommend

    Reads both XQD and CFexpress Type B

    A lot of full frame cameras use XQD and/or CFexpress Type B memory cards. They look the same, but unless your equipment is made to use both, are not interchangeable. This card reader can be used with BOTH cards. Sony has made a great card reader.

    A "Must Have" For The MacBook Pro

    The more recent MacBook Pro laptop computers no longer have an SD card slot so this adapter is a "Must Have" if you need to transfer data from an SD card to your MacBook Pro. I've read numerous reviews in which people said they were unable to get the adapter to work. You must first plug the SD card into the adapter being sure that the card is inserted per the Apple instructions. The plug the adapter into the Thunderbolt port. Works fine!

    I use it for my digital cameras to download to my iPad Pro and MacBook Pro. I’ve used several third party adapters, but when I forgot them on a trip, I stopped by and picked up this one. The transfer speed is crazy fast compared to my other ones and now is the only one I use. So, if you are an “apple” person, I suggest you spend the extra cash. You won’t be disappointed in the long run.

    iPhone photo transferring

    For those who want to transfer photos from old iPhone to new iPhone OR want to back up photos before clean restore then transfer back, I highly recommend this device over iCloud storage. I had to wipe my iPhone XS for clean restore, but wanted to retain all my photos... so I decided to backup locally with SD card thru this adapter and then transfer back to my iPhone with files app. The only gripe I have is the lightning port being slow; however, it’s manageable if you transfer photos in increments/iterations to prevent lag or glitching. Overall very convenient device!

    Does a good job

    I use the reader to read trail camera SD cards in the field with my iPhone.

    You can only see thumbnails of the images on the card and must download an image to see it as a full screen image.

    The downloaded images are also enlarged on large file size images such that the edges are not visible.

    When you email the image it is visible though.

    I do find the item very useful.

    Memory Card reader works with SD card.

    I created this video

    https://youtu.be/y6FkVlK5t64

    of the insignia memory card reader I bought from Best buy. This memory card reader works for SD cards. I have used it to copy files from my SD card to my laptop and I have used it to copy files from my laptop to my SD card. I used a SD card adapter in the Insignia memory card reader to copy files to my microSD card inorder to put the files on my cell phone with the microSD card. My computer does not have a SD card slot; so, I bought this memory card reader for that reason.

    I have only used the SD card slot so far. I have not used the micro SD card slot on the memory card reader yet; so, I just gave it 4 stars.

    I bought both readers available, wired and this one...the traditional wired reader failed multiple times. This reader has been working flawlessly.

    So far a great camera.

    Several years ago when I received my first digital camera, the value was around $700. Based on that price, I asked the Best Buy associate to show me a $400 camera. I'm still learning how to use this new camera but have already learned that it's by far the best camera I have ever owned. Honestly, I don't think I could ever own a better camera than this!

    More flimsy than I realized

    The product works great. Unfortunately, the removable cap is attached with a flimsy connector that broke literally as I was opening the package. Be careful of that connector and you should be fine.

    Surprising Performance

    I tend to shy away from private label brands, but this card reader from Insignia doesn't disappoint in the speed department. It works as fast as advertised, providing equal to or faster than the advertised read/write speeds from the CF and SD cards I have tested. If it can last, this will be a handy little card reader.

    Great for frustration and waste of time

    Look no further You’ve found the right card reader if you want to waste your time and become so frustrated you want to throw your whole computer! I bought this because it was the only one our Best Buy store has available in store and I just needed something simple to upload my pictures onto my laptop with because my computer only has a slot for a micro sd and I wanted a faster sd card for my camera. It took me about 10 times just to be able to open the file where you find your pictures. And then it wouldn’t load my photos! So it’s useless to me and I hope I can at least exchange for store credit. Find something better and save yourself the trouble

    Fit the need perfectly

    I do recommend. It works well, has small footprint and its just plug and play with Windows 10.

    I built my latest desktop and the case I chose did not have any memory card reader built in and I didnt want to use a 5.25 inch slot. So I decided to try this and it works great.

    In file explorer it will show the slots as 4 USB drives (drive letters assigned will depend on your system and you can rename each if you prefer).

    I does not require external power source - just plug it into USB - in my case 3.0. Comes with about a 2 foot 3.0 USB connection able.

    Speeds aren't blazzingly fast but that can be impacted by your system and your memory card speed.

    This is small enough to easily travel with. And since it doesnt require external power can be used easily with a laptop.

    Has 1 year warranty and Insignia is owned by BB, I believe, so returns should be very easy.

    It is exactly what I was looking for and am very happy with it.

    "Cheap, but reliable"

    Cheap, but reliable. That should be insignia's motto. But i would recommend this memory card reader for professionals on a budget. Using a 2020 16" Macbook Pro for video work. I would say to those that plan on using both card slots to be careful. If you are uploading using one of the slots, do not put a card in the open slot while uploading. I did this and it stopped the transfer. Ended up corrupting that file. Luckily I had a backup. Other than that, it hasn't failed me yet.

    Works Great

    Does what it needs to! Purchased a second one as backup. I really hate that Apple didn’t add an SD card slot into a computer most professional photographers/creators use but this is a cheap fix for their stupidity.

    Be sure to “eject” before removing cards. The dongle can stay inserted when swapping cards, you just won’t see it listed on your desktop until the next card is inserted.

    Perfect size and easy to store/transport.

    USB card reader for a laptop

    I classify my self as technology illiterate. How I have survived for 73 years is totally beyond me. Something bad happened to to built-in card reader on my laptop and it will no longer accept a memory card. My computer repair guy (who finished 1st in his high school class) told me I needed to get a USB card reader to access my photo memory cards from my camera...or, he could spend some more of my money and time and order an expensive replacement reader from Toshiba. I decided to follow his suggestion, visit Best Buy, and buy a USB card reader. I usually order things on line but since I had no idea what I needed, I figured a sales person might be helpful. For once, I was right.

    When I got to the store, finding a live sales person was a chore. Best Buy, like other merchants, are short of sales associates. Another frustrated customer requested a sales person to the computer area. When I could get his attention, I told him my problem and he showed me the area where I could find card readers. My immediate problem was what kind of card reader did I need for by 2.0 port on my laptop. The card reader I found was for 3.0 ports. Once again my illiteracy came into the equation, I once again found the sales guy who told me that higher rated readers will work with lower rates ports.

    I bought the card reader and it worked perfectly. Great product. Reasonable price. Excellent quality. Happy camper!

    Mr. R. Roberts

    Went in after 7pm unannounced, with a problem with my card reader. The agent asked to take it to the back room and try to find the problem. After a few minutes he returned saying the card reader was an older version and not capable of downloading my San Disk. I said obviously I needed a newer card reader at which time he said, I will will be right back. Fortunately, they had the current model in stock so I purchased it and departed to try it out on my computer. Worked superbly, and the agent was very knowledgeable and made me a happy camper (customer)!

The read speed was so fast that the computer didnt have time to give a speed on a 3GB transfer. I've only used it once, so i dont know about durability. Highly satisfied with the speed.

    Must have for transferring camera 4K content.

    Must have for transferring 4k video and/or large photo batches to computer.

    If you are using UHS-II cards, on average 4k 200 bit rate video of about 5gigs size will transfer in less than 2 minutes.

    Large photo batches (mix of raw and jpegs) will take a bit longer, still faster than when I used an usb-c hub.

    Nothing special except build quality.

    Actual UH-I speeds are on average about 95MB/s read + 80MB/s write. Tested with SanDisk 128GB Extreme PRO SDXC UHS-I. I presume UHS-II will be at double the speeds.

    Save your time! Increase your transfer speed!

    Excellent SD Card! I use it for transferring my Elgato video game clips and it helps moves GB's pretty fast. If you haven't bought a SD Card reader in a while, say 5 years, you should upgrade.

    Didn’t work

    Didn’t work with final Authenticator; couldn’t get through final stage so was useless. Thankfully BestBuy return policy saved the day!

    One of if not The Best Smart Card Readers

    It's very high rated and it works great.

    I highly recommend this for military and government types that log in from home with a DoD Smart Card.

    Yes, Worth the prices.

    Typical solid and reliable Sandisk.

    I was worried about the negative reviews, did some research and read that early units had issues with the card seating properly but has since been fixed.

    Gave it a shot today and purchased it. Works flawlessly. Good build-quality and actually slightly weighted with a rubber base so it stays put on your desktop. Spring mechanism for inserted cards is firm and easy to operate. Transfers were speedy.

    Excellent product.

    Wish it was dual purpose

    I’d give it 5 stars if it also worked with XQD (which are identical!). But good if you’re just using CFExpress

    Card reader

    The supplied cord does not work on my iMac. It is very cheap I would not recommend this item. I had to purchase additional cable for $19.00.

    Does it purpose as a CFexpress card reader

    It does it purpose and works fine. But i find after that the CFexpress card inserted in the reader, the card gets heated up after accessing photos after like even 15 - 20 minutes. My be normal heating. Don't know if a small internal cooling fan to dissipate the heat would have helped. May be Sandisk will come up with an improved model later.

    Very nicely made memory card reader

    It was surprisingly large and dense, like a small computer mouse but twice as heavy. It works very well with insanely fast copy speeds. Using the provided USB-C to USB-C cable gave slightly better speeds than my USC-A to USB-C cable but it was not by much. Write speeds seemed to take roughly three times longer to accomplish writing the same files back to the card. I’m not sure why but that shouldn’t be an issue for most uses.
