Valore USB-C/USB 3.0 Card Reader (VUH-33) Review

Background

Back in the 1st quarter of 2020, I was looking for a MicroSD/SD card reader that is compact and uses both USB-A and USB-C. I went around to several Challenger shops to look for one, and finally found the one that I feel it's the best. It is the Valore USB-C/USB 3.0 Card Reader (VUH-33). As such, I decided to get it.

The Product

The Valore USB-C/USB 3.0 Card Reader has a flash drive-like design. It supports reading MicroSD and SD cards. It looks like it's made of aluminum and it feels solidly build. On one end is USB-A and the other end is USB-C. Each end has a plastic cap to cover and protect the USB head.

Here are some pictures of the card reader that I've taken:

Usage and Experience

After purchasing the Valore USB-C/USB 3.0 Card Reader, I have only used it a couple of times. It shows as a USB drive on my Windows laptop, with each slot indicates a different drive. Similar to all other card readers out there, it is plug-and-play. All I need to do is to slot the MicroSD or SD card into the card reader, plug it into my laptop and I'm good to go and use it.

As for the speed of the card reader, I tested taking a 100MB test file and copy it into the MicroSD card. It took about 8 seconds, using either USB-C or USB-A. The same goes for when I first take the MicroSD card and put it into an SD card adapter, and then put it into the card reader. The transfer speed is more or less the same. Looks good.
