This StarTech Gadget Turns your USB C into SD card Slot!

Having a recent Macbook or Windows laptop is cool, but not having an SD-card slot is not cool. That’s where this StarTech.com gadget comes in!

 

PROS

  • Small and lightweight
  • Works well
  • Windows and Mac (Regular USB or USB C)
  • Micro SD en regular SD-input
  • Cheap

CONS

  • Couldn’t read both Micro and regular SD-card at the same time on my Mac
  • Not very durable

VERDICT

If you use SD-cards a lot, you probably have the same problems I have: you always need a big and expensive dongle to plug in your SD-card and transfer your video. With this small thing, you don’t have that problem. You can use it on a Mac or on a Windows and it’s plug and play. One issue I had, was that I couldn’t plug in a microSD and regular SD at the same time, because it would only read one. Could be a problem on my Mac as well, so yeah. Overall, for the price (16£) this is actually a must-have if you take a lot of pictures or videos and want to transfer them to your pc fast. You can find the dongle here.

Simon loves gadgets even more than he loves chocolate, and he’s from Belgium… How weird.
