ADVENT ACR14 USB 2.0 Memory Card Reader @ Currys £3.99

Found 14th May 2015
Picked this up from Currys yesterday and it appears to be USB 3 rather than 2, the port is blue and Windows 8 says connected to USB 3.0

Seems a bargain at £3.99

Edited title as currys are selling it as USB 2 even though mine was USB 3

Eg. some have a maximun capacity bearing of up to only 32GB, while others have a maximum capacity bearing of up to a massive 64GB instead?, so .....

That's now what they asked

Count me silly but having a USB 3.0 on such a device seems a bit pointless... I mean the best you can get from an so card is 30-40 MB/s which fast 2.0 can do and most cards are around 10-20 range.

Future micro-sd cards?

thanks op got 1 usb 3.

But buying stuff for future compatibility is questionable when we talk about memory considering that in cca 2 years when so cards reach USB 3 speeds so cards will decrease price per Gb 4 times approximately and you won't be able to use this as it's chips supports up to 64GB...

If you really need a card reader, fine but most of us have one of those adapters that ship with any micro sd card these days and any newer laptop pc usually has an sd card reader...

It just doesn't seem like something many people would use.

(I am not against it and have even voted hot...)
