USB 3.0 Five Slot Card Reader - CF/ SD/ MS/ xD/ microSD & M2
Read and write your flash memory cards at SuperSpeed with this USB 3.0 Five Slot Card Reader from Monoprice!
As flash memory cards have gotten larger and faster, the USB 2.0 interface has fallen behind the times. The newer USB 3.0 SuperSpeed specification provides for speeds up to 10x faster than USB 2.0, making it a much less tedious process to copy 64GB of music to a memory card.
This USB 3.0 card reader has slots for MicroSD/M2, SD, MS/MS Duo, CF, and xD cards, meaning that the popular Micro SD card can read/written without the use of an SD card adapter. The full list of supported cards is listed below. The reader is compatible with all versions of Windows from 2000 forward and all versions of Apple Mac OS X from 10.2 forward.
No software or installation is required. Just plug the reader into an available USB 3.0 (or earlier) port and plug in your memory card. The reader measures about 3.3" x 2.0" x 0.6" and comes with a short USB 3.0 cable.

The cable that comes with the reader is too short if you're not using it right by the USB port. Unfortunately, Monoprice does not seem to carry a USB 3.0 micro cable to replace it with.
PROS: Great transfer speed

PROS: Works as advertised!
PROS: Great value, reader works, is super cheap.
CONS: Doesn't heat up Pop-Tarts, but it's not a toaster so I can't really hold that against it.
PROS: Great price, easy to use, fast delivery. I love Monoprice, they deliver what they say and stand behind all their products 100%. Not many company's can say that now days.
