SDHC and UHS Readers for USB 3.0
  • Didn't find a topic so started new one.

    My desktop computer doesn't have USB 3.0 ports. Transfer speed with old Hama USB 2.0 SD card reader was pretty slow.

    Test file to transfer: 3,95GB compressed video
    SD card: Sandisk Extreme Pro 32GB 45MB/s

    USB 2.0
    Write: 6min 36seconds
    Read: 6min 39seconds

    Then I bought this USB 3.0 reader. Cost only ~18$ including shipping. And for USB 3.0 SD card reader I chose Transcend TS-RDF8K . Cost ~23$ including shipping.

    USB 3.0
    Write: 1min 51seconds
    Read: 1min 34seconds

    I'm happy with the results. Test setup computer's SSD is OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G.
    400 x 300 - 46K
    450 x 347 - 50K

  • don't forget to check if your mainboard support these USB card...I had two of them. First I meant it was the card, who is defective but unfortunately my mainboard don't support these USB 3.0 cards. Good luck!
