Choose a Transcend® card reader to move files easily and quickly between your computer and memory cards. Transcend offers a wide selection of readers that support popular formats like SD and CFast. These devices allow users to seamlessly transfer files between their PCs and gadgets like smartphones, tablets, digital cameras, and portable media players. Staples® has a large inventory of memory card readers from Transcend and other leading brands.

Expand Your Mobile Device Storage With an OTG Transcend Card Reader
Transcend's OTG readers are portable solutions for mobile devices. OTG or On-The-Go is a feature that makes a USB device serve as a host for other USB devices. To use these readers, you need a smartphone or tablet with OTG support. The brand offers three models under this line. The first one only works for Apple® devices and comes with a Lightning® connector. It has slots for SD and microSD cards and can transfer files from these memory cards to your iPad®, iPhone®, or iPod®.

If you have a mobile device that runs Android™ or Windows®, you need one of the other two models. These also support SD and microSD cards but also add USB Type-A ports. One model has a microUSB connector that fits the charging ports of most smartphones and tablets. The USB-C model has a reversible connector that plugs into the USB Type-C ports on select mobile devices and computers.

Choose Between USB 3.0 and 2.0 Transcend Card Readers
While its OTG card readers are pocketable devices, Transcend also makes bigger models that support a wider selection of memory cards. These are still compact and portable devices but with more slots. They have full-sized USB connectors and come in two broad groups: USB 3.0 and 2.0 readers. Models with USB 3.0 interfaces are capable of read speeds up to 130 Mbps or 10 times faster than USB 2.0 readers. Choose one of these unless your computer only has USB 2.0 ports. For an even faster transfer speed, look for a Transcend memory card reader that supports USB 3.1. Readers equipped with USB 3.1 interface are two times faster than USB 3.0 models. Both types of readers are backward compatible with USB 2.0 ports.

Should You Get a USB 3.1 Transcend Card Reader?
Transcend's USB 3.1 readers have a read speed of 260 Mbps and a write speed of 190 Mbps. You need a high-performance flash memory media, like UHS-II SD cards, to enjoy these high speeds. Professional graphic designers, photographers, and video editors use such high-performance memory cards to transfer heavy multimedia files like 4K videos and RAW images.

Can You Use a Transcend Card Reader on Any Computer?
Yes. Transcend readers with full-sized USB connectors are plug-and-play devices you can use on any computer. The manufacturer lists support for the following desktop operating systems: Windows® XP and higher, Mac OS X® 10.2.8 and later, and Linux® Kernel 2.6.3 or later.

Do All Transcend Card Readers Have Companion Mobile Apps?
No. Only the OTG models do. For Apple devices, Transcend provides the Smart Reader app. Android users can unlock more features from their readers by using the Transcend Elite app.
