IOGEAR GFR3C12 Reviews

The right size for a simple function

By R. Lucas
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-22

I like the size of the card reader, easy for travel and the Silicon rubber keeps the USB plugs clean although it would have been good if this also covered the card slots on the side. Fits the SD & MicroSD cards so I don't need to use an adapter for the micro. Data transfer was fast from my Skydio drone card. Was slightly warm after transferring about 60 GB but not usually and the aluminum outer shell transfers the heat easily.

The IOGEAR USB Type-C Duo Card Reader/Writer is extremely useful in that it can handle all of my card sizes. It is fast and efficient and small enough to through in my camera or computer bag or pocket.

There is however another such device which is the same size and has the same USB A/C but is rated as 95mb/s. I don't know what this one (iogear) can do as my computer is slowing it down

Compact and versatile

Excellent, compact and versatile.

Compact & Handy - Slow to recognize sometimes

By Blakely
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2021-05-07

I bought a new Mac Mini that lacked an SD card reader. I wanted something compact that would let me use USB-C or A depending on my needs and would transfer videos fast. This adapter works fine and is speedy to transfer over USB-C. The only reason I took off a star is because sometimes the card is slow to appear on my Mac. Sometimes I have had to unplug and replug the adapter to get it to show up, or reseat the SD card (which fits rather snugly into the slot). So I'm not totally sure if it's the reader, my cards, or what, but once the card shows up in the OS this reader works great.

love it

Perfect OTG card reader

This works as both a conventional card reader for a desktop/laptop reader and an OTG device for either phone or tablet. It's got a place in my camera bag for quickly transferring photos to a tablet for quick editing & distribution.

Asked by: Gavin
No, the IOGEAR USB Type-C Duo Card Reader/Writer (B&H# IOGFR3C12) allows you to use either the micro SD or SD slot. The two slots share a single interface and thus may not be used simultaneously.
