What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Sony QDA-SB1 Xqd USB Adapter
  • The size of this XQD adapter is almost half of my iphone. It's amazing.
  • This one is smartly designed to be compact and very fast, while being protected by a USB plug cover.
  • It's well-enough built and compact enough to bring along with you.
  • Great product. Compact and easy to carry daily.
  • With the laptop in my lap plugging an object of this size directly into the USB port is awkward.
Sony MRW-E90 XQD USB 3.0 Reader
  • Sony product, can't go wrong. Nice size and looks great.
  • Size and included USB cable makes this portable and fits in camera bag.
  • I like the readers compactness and its speed of transfer.
  • Compact, super fast, the only improvement I would have liked would be a USB type-C connection so as to avoid carrying another cable.
  • It's easy to install and works well. It's also flat and fits in a small place so it's not in my way.

What customers say about "Features"
Sony QDA-SB1 Xqd USB Adapter
  • This adapter is both quick and able to copy all files from my Sony 128GB XQD card.
  • Fast, simple to use, cards lock in and eject cleanly, never had a read problem, can use the nice cable included of plug it in direct.
  • It's a card reader, it works on my mac just fine. Much faster transfer speeds over using a cable hooked to your camera.
  • In terms of performance, it’s fast and mounts cards instantly. Nothing else bad to say about it.
  • It is not fast. When tested with a Sony XQD 128 GB Type G 440/400 MBs card random write scores were super slow, much slower than for regular SDs.
Sony MRW-E90 XQD USB 3.0 Reader
  • The transfer very fast for XQD and SD with USB 3 connection. Highly recommended.
  • This XQD card reader works as described and is very fast when transferring photos and data from camera to computer.
  • Card reader needed for XQD compact flash card used in Nikon D850. Super fast card reader!
  • The Sony card reader are fast and reliable and so far I have no complaints with performance.
  • This is well made and fast. Beats the heck out of connecting the camera to my PC with a USB cable and uploading photos that way.
