StarTech.com USB 3.0 Flash Memory Multi-Card Reader and Writer with USB-C is rated4.00 out of5 by7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, Easy and Compact Card ReaderWhen Apple came out with the newMacBook Pro's with Touchbar they did not include the SD Card Readers or USB 2.0 ports so. Having a laptop that only has USB-C ports made it difficult to access data on any type of SD cards. Once again StarTech has an answer for this issue. Their new USB-C SD Card Reader is plug and play ready and includes SD Card, MicroSD, and Compact Flash ports. I have found that it is as simple as plug the reader into the laptop and it works.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No place to plug inGuess I should have investigated what USB-C was. Turns out I have no equipment that this plugs into.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works right out of the boxUsing the adapter with the new Macbook Pro, working with SD cards (cameras and phones mostly). Plug it in, and it just works. If I have the SD card in the reader before connecting to the Macbook, I have to remove the SDcard and re-seat it. But other than that one thing, it doesn't have any downsides.Transfers data very quickly indeed! Solid metal shell, thick cable, and holds the cards firmly. It seems to attract every bit of dust/hair/pollen imaginable, so keep it in a case or bag when not in use. Would love to see StarTech have a molded slot cover for this adapter.I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked well, when it workedBought this in July 2017. No longer reads CF cards. Have reached out to customer service as it has a two year warranty - see whether they will honour it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy portable readerThis is a great little reader if all you need is SD, MicroSD, and CF. The size is great for travelling and the cord isn’t so long that it gets in the way. My only comment would be on the way SD cards are inserted (pins up), it would be nice to have a graphic on the top to remind you how to insert it. Downloading photos is super fast and I really like the one-piece aluminum housing.I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plug and play - easy to use!No power required - just plug this reader into a USB-C port and it starts working immediately. It has SD, microSD and CompactFlash (I did not not try this one as I do not have any media for it) and the SD / microSD worked flawlessly. The speed of the transfer of data will depend on the make and model of the media.This product definitely gets a thumbs up from me as there were no power adapters or drivers required - ease of use at its finest.I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.
