    "This card reader is awesome. It has so many ports, and even features an HDMI output. This thing has never given me any type of weird issues where it's not recognized by the computer when you plug it in. Still working after years of having it!"

    "The Cable Matters Type USB-C allows instant access to SD, SDHC, SDXC, and microSD cards directly from someone's mobile device or computer. The model provides fast data access and USB 3.1 data transfer rates of 5 Gbps. The 6-inch cable still allows access to other slots/ports and removal of SD card is very easy."

    "I needed a card reader for my new MacBook and have always had luck with SanDisk cards and figured I'd give the reader a shot since it needed to be a USB C interface. So far so good, it fits the port fine and I've had no interruptions while connected. It's design is a bit flimsy and is made in a way to protrude out past any other devices you may have connected."

    "This is a very important cord if you're into digital photography. Sure, most people take selfies with their smartphones, but for those with powerful digital cams and its SD and microSD cards, you need one of these to get your pics from the camera to your hard drive. The Satechi is also one of the better looking card readers and works with most laptops so this dongle will definitely come in handy."

    "Ugh! This thing was terrible. It only worked half the time I tried it. Sometimes it just refused to read anything, even cards it read before with no problem. It was utterly unreliable. I can't have a card reader that can't read cards when I need it to! Utterly unreliable - worthless."

    "This is not what I am looking for. This is a good USB C compatible hub, but it does not include any card reading support. This is USB only."
