      Does not work with Lexar 256GB SDXC cards

      I am a professional photographer. This reader won’t read either of my Lexar 256GB SDXC cards. Those same cards work fine in five other card readers. The r I am a professional photographer. This reader won’t read either of my Lexar 256GB SDXC cards. Those same cards work fine in five other card readers. The reader sticks out far too much from the machine, a problem in cramped quarters. The card is difficult to remove due to the lip on the reader; it makes one pinch to get the card out, which is hard when working in cold conditions (stiff fingers).

      DON'T BUY - bad design

      Bad design - once you put the SD card in deep, it is difficult to take it out as the bottom lip actually jutts out diagonally (can't see in the photos here) pre Bad design - once you put the SD card in deep, it is difficult to take it out as the bottom lip actually jutts out diagonally (can't see in the photos here) prevents your fingers from grabbing the SD card securely to pull it out. The connection to the USB-C port is not totally secure. Anyway, not going to waste more time writing about this. TOTALLY RUBBISH DESIGN!!! Wasted my time ordering and waiting for this while I could have just bought a USB-C SD card reader from Ebay for just £6!!

It works with all m With this at the time of writing this one of the only USB-C card readers to be used with the Late 2016 MacBook Pro I decided to purchase it. It works with all my SanDisk SD cards as it should. However the 45 degree angle they put on this at the slot entrance ruins it. You place your SD card into the reader and it goes 3/4 of the way in leaving just about a 1/4 inch sticking out, you are unable to remove the card once it is in since it is so difficult and the angle of the card reader doesn't allow you to get a finger under the card to remove it. I will be looking for an updated version or another brand to purchase once more readers are available for the USB-C interface.

      DO. NOT. BUY.

      Absolutely terrible SD card reader. As an avid photographer, I expected my $50 to go toward a solid, reliable card reader. I was wrong. Every single time I use Absolutely terrible SD card reader. As an avid photographer, I expected my $50 to go toward a solid, reliable card reader. I was wrong. Every single time I use it, it disconnects mid-import simply because it's not elevated with the computer. I propped it atop something to make sure it was elevated in hopes of the device to work, it didn't. The long piece upfront with the USB-C cable attached is flimsy and the slightest bend can break the internals. Once again, don't waste your money or time.

      Two stopped working within months of purchase

      We have bought two of these at the Apple Store this year and both stopped working. The first worked fine for about 8 months then suddenly stopped working. So I We have bought two of these at the Apple Store this year and both stopped working. The first worked fine for about 8 months then suddenly stopped working. So I bought another at the Apple Store, and it stopped working this week, just 4 months later. We use these moderately - probably dumping 2-3 SD cards a week to our multiple MacBook Pro's with USB-C ports. I don't see any obvious wear and tear on them so I am not sure why they are breaking.
