The Minidrive Microsd Adaptor Macbook Air/retina/pro (Theminidrive) 2495

Review for the minidrive microsd adaptor

Price was $19.54. Works great, computer recognizes it immediately and the response rate is excellent. I just wish there was a better way to remove it rather than the 2 pieces of tape stuck to the top. That means that they are always there and catch on everything when you move the computer or slide it into a case or computer bag. Not so well thought out i guess.

Introduction

The minidrive is a great concept with the need for a redesign. My micro sd card fit in perfectly, but it took multiple tries to get the minidrive seated in my macbook properly. After pulling the tab (lets be honest, it's a piece of packing tape) twice, it pulled off the adapter forcing me to use some tweezers to pull it out of the sd slot. I made my own "advanced design" tab out of strapping tape and was able to finally seat the adapter correctly. So far so good, but considering they are charging $20 for what is at most $1 worth of materials i most certainly expected more from the product. . Update 10/27/14: i've used this continuously within my macbook air since i bought it in february. I've had zero issues with the computer reading the card, and it appears to have held up well. Because of this i have raised my rating from 3 to 4 stars.

The minidrive microsd adaptor macbook air/retina/pro Review (minidrive pro air retina v1)

It does the job which is to extend the memory without protruding out of macbook air. I am using it with 64gb micro sd class 10 card. The thing which i did not like is the soft plastic bit which folds in, it's pretty strong though but i would rather have a solid plastic bit instead which would be easier to eject or remove. Nifty drive is better option but relatively expensive and not available. -L. Julie

Minidrive Microsd Adaptor Macbook Retina Personal Computer

PROS
  • Works great, paired with a scandisk ultra 64 gb micro sd card, don't even notice that it's in my computer, has expanded my capacity by 25%. Recommend highly.
  • Works well an only extends a small distance beyond the edge of the mbp-retina 13. Would have preferred that it was flush though.
CONS
  • Very disappointed. I have used the minidrive microsd adpater for about a year now sitting in my macbook air and it is flimsy. Great concept but the plastic has come apart several times. For the price i would expect a little better quality product. Overall does the trick and allows for easy removal with the plastic flap that curls under my macbook air 13".
  • Two reasons you should stay away from this product:. . 1) the unit does not sit flush with the edge of my macbook, it goes way inside. . 2) the piece of tape attached to it, which is used to remove the drive, is cheap at best. If, and when, the tape breaks, you are looking at surgery to pull the thing out from inside your macbook.
  • I intended to use it on my 2013 13" retina macbookpro, however it doesn't fit. I tried it on 2013 15" retina macbookpro, it fits with a small edge outside. I am glad i can use it and not have to return it. It would be better if it fits on the 13" mbp.

the minidrive microsd adaptor The MiniDrive | microSD Adaptor | MacBook Air/Retina/Pro (Switch to Mobile/Desktop Version)

Using it now for over 6 months and working well. It was originally in a macbook pro and now macbook air. Paired with a 64gb card. . Sometimes it would disappear after the mac had gone to sleep but would return when i rebooted or popped it out and back in. I think it was more an os issue than device issue. I leave it in all the time so haven't had any issues with the plastic tab breaking off but i am careful not to bend the tab too much. . Totally recommend this if you need more space or a personal location for your own files outside the 'corporate' image.

Click to see NoticeThe Minidrive Microsd Adaptor Macbook Air/retina/pro (Theminidrive)"Works well in my wife's acer s3 ultrabook. When you insert a sd card into the expansion slot of her computer more than half is sticking out. Can't leave it there. I wanted something to add storage with and provide readyboost and i already had a 32gb sandisk souper dooper microsd card. This works great, only a slight portion is left sticking out and i don't feel like if it's bumped it'll break off. My hat's off to the minidrive."

Baseqi Aluminum Microsd Adapter Macbook Pro Retina 13 (fba isda303asv) FAQ.

Without a doubt, the best (and affordable) way to add storage to your 13" mbpr! i specifically use mine for my itunes library and movies and it works flawlessly. I've got a 128 gb pny micro sd card and i believe this adapter can support up to 256 gb. . For someone who travels with their macbook, the fact that this is flush makes all the difference in the world. No more unsightly external usb drives sticking out of your mac and no more having to remove them when having to stow them away in a backpack etc. . I've never had an issue with mine losing connectivity when restarting, shutting down, or just closing the lid in sleep mode. For this reason alone i give it 5 stars. -Notice from L. Shirley, Alabama

This well-made little adapter fit perfectly into the slot in a macbook pro (retina, 13-inch, mid 2014). I placed a 128 gb microsd inside. The computer saw the drive as expected and it mounts on the desktop. It's nice to have a little extra storage available all the time.

Baseqi-aluminum-microsd-adapter-macbook-pro-retina-13-(fba-isda303asv) set picture

- O. MicheleMy first adapter would not work. The second one - bought much later - works just fine with a 256 card in it. It is slightly tricky to insert but only slightly. The alignment has to be exact, which might not be a bad thing. . (old review) just would not work with any cards. These cards do work in all other adapters i have tried. Returned the item.

Overall, this is a great product, and it does what it says it does. I take off a star because it isn't easy to remove the item. While there is enough of a indent where you'd think you can use your fingernail, you'll likely break it as it needs a bit more strength. This is fine as most aren't removing this frequently (i'm not), but there should likely be some tool provided as i do fear jamming things in there and breaking the device or my sd card.

This is a great card. Using it to actually run a disk intensive application as a portable test bed environment. Far, far faster than i expected to be, doing something that it wasn't necessarily designed for. I had tried other speed class 10 cards that were marginal, but this one met the need.

I m using this with my 200g micro sd, in a 2015 macbook pro. It s flush with the side of the case as promised and it works just fine. If i had to complain about something it s that it doesn t insert into the sd slot smoothly - you just keep pushing until it s in all the way and there s no satisfying click. But i think that s just the nature of the slot with a card this small. The card stays in place once it s in.

- . RitaThis is a really nice way to add some storage to your macbook pro. It's not something you're going to remove and replace daily, but if you're low on space and want a way to unobtrusively add some storage for less frequently used or temporary files - this is just absolutely wonderful.

I purchased this along with the pny elite 200 gb microsdxc card. They fit together neatly and this fits perfectly in my macbook pro (late 2013 retina). It is completely flush, matches the color, looks just like it's part of the main machine.

SanDisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD SDSDQUAN-200G-G4A

This sandisk ultra 32gb microsdhc uhs-i card with adapter is very ideal for premium android based smartphones and tablets. This product will work well for most people's needs. Been using it for a while now and it really works well . The sandisk ultra plus is meant for higher end cameras with bigger lenses and wider aperture like the digital cameras. I got this for my smart phone to store photos and part of my apps. That frees up space on the phone's internal memory to allow it to operate faster. . It arrived so quickly i was shocked. I won't have to worry about saving too many pictures or music on my phone for a loooong time, and for such a reasonable price. This is a great device for using storing videos or other files that you need to access daily without using precious memory space on your new computer. If needed you could use a larger card but for me this is the perfect size.

- U. HakalaThese cards are the best. I've tried a lot of different brands but the sandisk cards just work - always work. They have the amount of space advertised and are speedy. They work great for raspberry pi / retropie builds and have never given me a problem. It's work the few extra bucks for piece of mind when it comes to your data.

It's a mircosd card made by a reputable manufacturer. What more is there to say? i think i'm using it in a garmen etrex hcx handheld gps unit. No problems to report and none expected. For all you young folks out there, you have no idea how amazing it is that you can get 32 gigabytes of storage in such a small package.

Minidrive Retina 13 Adaptor Expansion (Flash Memory) FAQ.

Works just as you'd think. No problems whatsoever. Fits flush next to macbook air and does not wobble. If you plan on keeping it as permanent storage this shouldn't be a problem, but it's a little hard to pull the microsd card back out from the adapter, but it comes out eventually. I would have given it 5 starts if it had been a little bit cheaper (there are other similar offerings that are cheaper, this is just the best looking/best functioning one) or if the silver part had been made out of aluminum (it's plastic, but looks just like the macbook's aluminum). -Notice from N. Nellie, Sachsen-Anhalt

This is the perfect tool for my macbook pro m-12'. I combined a sandisk 200gb sdxc card with this for a great time machine. This is not some purchase, but a wise investment. Just make sure you quickly insert the nifty or you may experience a read-only issue.

- H. PerezWorks for what it advertised, however i had to buy both models to see which one would fit my mac as it's mid 2012 retina. Hope you can add more information so other customers can choose better.

I have two of these now with my two macbook pro retina 15". Pair this up with the sandisk 200 gb micro sd to maximize the space you can add to your macbook. I use this as a time machine but have also utilized it as extra space for my backup macbook. . The build quality is excellent and it looks as if it fits the macbook as an oem attachment. The price increased about $10 on my second purchase but at $40 it is still worth it to add more space to your macbook.

- O. JulianaThis does just exactly what i need it to do keep a large-capacity microsd card in my macbook as a secondary, always-present internal hard drive, without the need to reconnect it every time i reboot, and that sits flush against the edge of the machine and doesn't catch on anything when i put the computer in my bag. I love it and don't regret my purchase at all.

This piece is essential for users with a lot of files who do not want to drag an external hard disk with them everywhere they go. It fits perfectly and works like part of the laptop. I had my worries that if laptop power turns off then i restarted the laptop and didn't see the micro ad connected so i had to pull it out and insert it again.

BASEQI Aluminum MicroSD Adapter Microsoft Surface Book & Surface Book 2 13.5 Model-350A

Appears to be well made, perfect flush fit for the surface book and a close color match. The flush fit means it isn't as easy to remove as an sd card would be but if you want to use it as a second drive that's not an issue. I paired it with a 200gb microsd and use it for file history.

This is perfect! it sits flush with the computer and is the same color. It looks like it is part of the computer. Have been using it for a little over 3 months now and no problems reading cards. . Because of the nature of the surface book the card reader has to be taken out to install a different micro sd card and then reinserted. Although i do not do this often as i am using the sd card for added storage, such as music, it is a bit of a pain. I did not take any stars off because of this because i believe the majority of the fault lies with microsoft.

The F.A.Q. for the minidrive microsd adaptor macbook air/retina/pro

I wanted to save some money. I am a student on a shoestring budget. I thought the mini-drive was a little pricey so i went with a cheaper adapter and it was exactly that. Cheap. The samsung chromebook is built with 16gb internal memory and that is supposed to be all you need because of the abundant cloud space available. With only two usb ports available, the best option for additional memory was the sd card slot. A full size adapter card protrudes out the side and poses a risk of damage to the slot. The minidrive fits nice and flush with a little pull tab adhered to it for easy removal. I read some of the reviews concerning problems with the card. This may be a result of wear and tear to the contacts due to constant removal and installation of the card. I have no intentions of removing it because it is now part of my drive system. I highly recommend this product as a permanent solution to boost the memory capacity of your samsung chromebook.

A number of questions have been asked here.

Theminidrive worked right away with a macbookpro mid2009. The microsd adaptor itself does not have any specials concerning it's fabrication - materials and fabrication are comparable to any microsd adaptor except, of course, that this one here is shorter and hides about 3-4cm inside the macbookpro mid2009. As described, there is a transparent plastic tab to pull the adaptor out of your mac again. This, i must say, looks a bit adventurous to me, as the named plastic tab really appears to be simple transparent tape. I would have preferred to have a hook or something alike for pulling out the adaptor - or a cord, as described in the black-and-white manual which has been delivered with the device. But let's be honest, it is not the plan to pull the adaptor out everyday or even every week. I am using it as additional memory - so i am planning to leave it in the slot. . Last but not least: the named manual shows, as described earlier, an adaptor, which has a cord stuck to it, with which the adaptor can be pulled out of the macbook. Further, the in "painted-style" illustrated manual shows an adaptor, that does not vanish inside the slot but has an additional backside, which flushes with the adjacent areas of the side of the macbook. This is not the case in reality, as mentioned above.

I wasn't really sure what to expect with this sd card but it is the best. The sd is now a permanent part of my macbook pro and i never take it out since i now use it as a second drive. It's flush with the computer and you can't tell that it's even there.

O. Paula, Centre says

Does exactly what it's supposed to do. Bought it for a first-gen raspberry pi originally, but now that they've transitioned into microsd, this is no longer needed. Still though, slick product and works well with my laptop!

F. Debra, Michigan

Bought this for my samsung chromebook because normal sd cards stick out fairly significantly from the slot. Does the job.

G. Jessica, District of Columbia says

100% compatible. Neatly recessed to the mac book chassis. Nearly undetectable; unlike other models that extended by . 75" out and risking it get damaged while in a case. No effect on read write/read performances. Excellence in performance & function at a great price.

. Alma, Hamburg

Pretty good, i have a lenovo yoga pro 2 and since the mini drive wasn't available for that specifically i was hoping this would work. Its not exactly flush but its only a mild annoyance.

W. Gloria, Peterborough says

I ordered this minidrive to use with my macbook pro. Overall, the adapter works well, with just a few minor issues. I do not remove it frequently, so the issues below will likely not be a problem, but they are worth mentioning: a) i needed to use a paperclip to install the adapter completely by pushing it the whole way in; b) the tab to remove the adapter is very cheap and has already broken off; c) the tab in the picture shows that it matches the color of the macbook, ours did not.

Y. Nielsen, Nova Scotia

I bought this with the idea of moving my user folder to it. It's a great idea and i love it. However, it (or my sd card) was too slow compared to the internal ssd. It loses a star for the difficulty in getting it out. It comes with a plastic tab that you either live with sticking out or folding under. If you fold it under, it's very hard to get it out without ruining the plastic tab. This is great for additional storage though and would work well for storing photos or music on. But, i wouldn't use it for speed critical items like your user folder or system.

Z. Patton, Southend-on-Sea says

Lets be clear. The mindrive does exactly what it's supposed to do. It allows you to insert a micro sd card into your macbook and not have the huge stub of the end sticking out. Where the minidrive fails is that it has a 1/2" long strip of plastic secured to it so that you can eventually retrieve the minidrive from your macbook. As another customer mentioned, it ruins the clean look. Think of it as going to an interview with the tags still on your new pants. It's possible to tuck that piece of plastic in so that you can't see it, but be careful as you may have trouble getting it untucked later. . All in all though, it was well worth the money! . . 11/10/13: just a quick update to pass along another interesting note about this product. It fits perfectly into a raspberry pi when using a pibow case. If you use the adafuit micro-usb adaptor board you'll see that the case bows a little when you tighten it down due to the thickness of it. No such problem here. It slides in nicely and the little plastic tab allows for removal if you want to change cards. . 03/09/14: another thing of note. This is not meant for frequent swapping around from device to device. It's pretty flimsy. The tiny tines between the contacts will bend really easily. You'd be better off going with a pny storedge (which works great.

J. Smith, Sachsen

I purchased this minidrive adapter for my macbook air and inserted a 128gb microsd card to free up some memory. The adapter works great. It completely disappears. Just be advised that the speed of your average microsd card is significantly slower than the ssd in a macbook air. I put both my iphoto & itunes libraries on the sd card. The rotating beachball is now my friend anytime i access iphoto. Itunes streams just fine.

A. Parker, Wyoming says

This is what i have been looking for. My sd card is now all the way in my mac, not hanging off the side. There is a little clear piece of plastic used to pull it out. I have it tucked under my case, and you can't even see it.

H. Alba, Nevada

Fits nicely into my new chromebook.

X. Brendon, York says

I use a 64gb microsd with it and it works great on my 13" macbook pro retina. I was about to sell my mbp since i needed more drive space, but this has breathed another few months of life into the otherwise terrific unit. . Flimsy, yes, but you don't handle it much. You want it to just go in and stay there. It sticks out more than i expected, but it sticks out less half the depth of an iphone 5. Or you can squish 12 business cards together and that is the thickness it protrudes. I've only been using it for a few days, but so far so good.

Q. Arnett, Newham says

Its a nifty little device to expand my storage on my mac book pro, . It look neat and quite invisible. I will put all my photo libraries on it

E. Williams, Wandsworth

I got a samsung chromebook and i didn't like the memory card adapter sticking out. This fits perfectly and you can't see it, or have the chance of damaging it. Perfect!

T. Alice, Tasmania says

I have an asus zenbook infinity (ux301la) and i wanted some way to keep my sd card in the machine most of the time. This adapter did the trick and works like a charm. In this hardware, it does still protrude by 2-3mm, so the plastic tab is unnecessary, but the much smaller profile makes it viable to store the laptop in a case without removing the card.

N. Patricia, Alsace

I just purchased my second one of these low-profile microsd adapters. Both work exactly as advertised and fit perfectly in the sd slot of a lenovo thinkpad x120e while staying basically flush against the side of the machine. The adapter protrudes just enough that you can wiggle it out with your fingernails, or just use the attached flexible plastic tab. Highly recommended for anyone who needs to keep a microsd card/adapter in a machine like the x120e, from which normal adapters would stick out. Good product.

U. Cortney, Massachusetts says

What i don't like - initially not recognised as it doesn't seem to like being "hot swapped". After a power restart it worked. They make notes not to insert it slowly. Doesn't really affect me as i have a card pretty much permanently installed in it. . Also, the "tape" used to remove the adapter later is probably not the best solution - it works, but having a hook or some other mechanism that you could pull from would be cleaner.

R. Jarvis, Massachusetts

No thanks to macbooks (not everything apple implements is a good idea) out there many new laptops also have a half sized sd slot. Fortunately, minidrive has answered the call. This fit my lenovo laptop and greatly reduces the perilous nature of the sd card sticking out of the computer. It can now be carried without having to remove the sdxc card. . What i don't understand is why manufacturers have not started using microsd card slots? this would save a lot of trouble. After all, the mini hdmi socket seems to be standard on phones and laptops now.

D. Meredith, Telford and Wrekin says

I've been using in for close to 3 years now, with almost no hitch. The earlier versions of the mac os would occasionally "eject" the dirve, which required a system restart, but i think it was a problem with the os. Have had no problems at all with yosemite and el capitan

V. Carol, Torbay

I posted a review that i wasn't happy with my experience. The manufacturer contacted me and helped me clarify the problem. They are now shipping me a replacement. I will say this: the part i ordered said "fits flush with. " and lists out multiple models including my macbook retina 15. It did not fit flush. They explained that this part is a "universal" and there is a model that fits perfectly. . The description here was incorrect but the fact that the manufacturer would reach out to a customer to make it right says something. The part is in the mail. I will post a comment to this feedback when i receive it and close the loop. . I decided to change my negative review because of their attention to my concerns. I'll update with the resolution when i receive the replacement part. So far, i'm impressed with their service nonetheless. . Update: the company saw my negative review here and made it right. They mailed me the perfect part. Not every company does that. It may not have been a smooth launch for these guys but their to make me a happy customer has made me a believer. If you have a problem, contact them. They are more customer focused than 99% of what you see out there. Peace!

Disadvantage and Critical reviews

. Medina, Hammersmith and Fulham says

Does the trick but the tape flap looks unreliable and the need to squeeze a corner to prevent the card to fall out is also very simple.

C. Claudia, Barnet

Bought this cause i thaugt it would work like the nifty. . Ist supercheap and is only hold together by plastic tape. . Dont buy it. Really bad quality.

K. Lewis, Rutland says

But, hopefully, they make these better in the future. . The tag to remove the product is junk and came out of the package folded in a very inconvenient way, i'd go so far as to claim that it was damage from the packaging process. My micro card fits, the transfer rate is nothing special but i use it as one of my backup drives, so speed isn't really important. Overall, it serves my purpose well.

T. Melissa, Croydon

I bought this for my lenovo yoga 2 pro. I was needing to add semi-permanent additional storage without upgrading the ssd that came with the computer. Works just like any micro sd card adapter. In the yoga 2 pro its not flush with the body and sticks out about 1/16th of an inch which as long as you don't store the laptop on the edge where the sd card is you'll never have a problem. It is fairly expensive for what it is but i was unable to find any other low-profile micro sd card adapter.

P. Rose, Alaska says

I was definitely a bit leery buying this minidrive. Some reviews say it doesn't work, doesn't fit right etc. I got mine for my 15" retina macbook pro and so far it works fine. My main issue however is that its actually a bit too short so that the edge isn't flush with the computer. The drive basically disappears into the sd port and is very difficult to get out. This doesn't bother me at all however if anyone intends to frequently pull their minidrive in and out it might make it more difficult. I guess if i had to choose between it being recessed in the computer and it sticking out i'd choose the former. Performance seems fine too. I may upgrade to the nifty minidrive when it's out but this does the job for now. Will update if i experience any issues moving forward.

W. Carmen, Pennsylvania

A piece of plastic to remove it? okay, while i get that items like these are essentially meant to be nonstandard storage, i also get that nonstandard storage may need to come out to allow other nonstandard storage devices access. Getting this out once the tiny sliver of plastic failed (and it did the first time) is stressful & ine. Further, it looks cheap, doesn't rest flush (it's more internal than flush), and causes more stress than it should d(which is any-a thing like this shouldn't cause stress). Off to buy a replacement.

A. Newell, Virginia says

Works, but the drive is not automatically mounted even though i never take it out. I'm not sure why.

S. Guest, Salford

I used this adapter along with a 64gb micro sd card and it worked great in my asus zenbook for about 9 months. I used it to store my itunes library so i didn t eat into the small ssd i had for my other data. I took it out of the laptop maybe 6 times during that period to read other sd cards from my digital camera. I also store my computer in a laptop bag while transporting it so it isn t getting bumped into or abused in any way like it would out in the open. It sits almost flush with my laptop and i figured everything would be fine because it spends most of the time in my computer. I pulled it out the last time a month ago and a small plastic piece fell on my desk. I inspected it and come to find out it was from the edge by the connector on the card where you slip the micro sd card into. Now when i hold it between my fingers the card is pulling apart and feels like it could break into pieces if i handle it much more. I don t have a lot of options when it comes to short sd adapters for my asus zenbook, but this will definitely not be my next choice when/if i choose to replace it.

X. Finch, Illinois says

I purchased this product for my mid-2012 15" macbook pro retina. My mac has only a 250gb hard drive, and i do a lot of photography. It sounded like just the thing to make room for my lightroom catalogs and photo files which are swiftly filling the solid state drive. Unfortunately. It does not work. I have put my 128gb micro-sd into a standard micro-sd adapter, and it works just fine; so the problem is not with the micro-sd card. . The mini-drive seems pretty sloppily made. If i rub my finger across the contacts, the plastic "teeth" separating the contacts actually wiggle out of place. In order to seat it in the card slot, i have to use the edge of another card. When seated, the only way to remove it is to pull on a piece of tape that comes attached to the drive adapter. If it had actually worked, i would still worry that the tape would eventually tear or come off, leaving no way to remove the darn thing without a trip to the apple store. I certainly don't recommend it.

V. Campbell, Luton

It worked for all of 10 seconds before crapping out. The microsd card and the macbook is fine, i tested them separately again. . When this is inserted into the sd card slot, it slows boot time by 10 seconds ish, since it needs to initialize the device drivers or something. Right now i'm just using it as a holder in my macbook so i don't lose my microsd card.

D. Donna, Doncaster says

It does what it is supposed to do, but i don't like the tape, they could have found a better solution for that. Performance is also just okay

. Lara, Merton

I don't really like the idea of plugging a piece of tape into an expensive laptop computer, although it looked more than adequate for removing the card. I would have ordered the more expensive option this seller provides had i purchased them for a mac laptop. . They are perfect for raspberry pi computers though and can be removed from some of the cases without the use of the tape strip. I was able to remove the tape from the card and it is still easily removable from one of the cases i am using. With another case, i might need to leave the tape strip on one of the cards i have purchased if i want the card to be easily removable, however i might not need the card to be easily removable with that case anyway. . If you are considering purchasing this for a mac laptop, the more expensive card would be a better option. . Updated review:. I"ve had three of the four cards i purchased start to separate. When they begin to separate, they no longer function properly. The seller was nice enough to send out two more cards, however i don't even think i will bother asking for another replacement. These adaptors just don't seem to hold up well.

I was excited to get this item, but was disappointed when i finally got it. I mean, it works, the price was great, but the design/look could have been given a little bit more effort. The plastic thingy is just tacky. I mistakenly took the plastic off since it didn't seem like it was part of the design - only to struggle pulling off the minidrive without it - so beware! dont take the plastic off! got it back on, tucked it in, works well, forgot it's even there (which is a good thing)

Got minidrive v2, air/pro/retina. . Smaller foot print/ sticks out only 2mm from the sdxc slot! perfect for occasional removal. No need for the plastic insert that your supposed to fold back into the slot. I have a speck macbook case that adds about 1mm of plastic armor around the macbook, so really only 1mm of the minidrive is exposed. If you read the instructions, you may actually trim 2mm off the drive with a sharp instrument. But i would not just cause it doesnt bother me. . Smaller and faster than the sandisk cruzer fit 64gb it replaced (6mb/20mb write/read), but write speeds of the minidrive are only a touch faster. . Im using 64gb g. Skill sdxc uhs1 card which is capable of writing 12mb/sec, and reading at 26mb/sec (mp4 movie files) using its own full size sdxc adapter. . In my tests, the minidrive transfers a 2gb mp4 x. 264 movie file at rates of 7. 3/7. 4 mb/sec. (read/write). Quite a let down. I tried two different formats, fatex and ntfs. No difference. . In closing, i love the size of the minidisk; i get 64gb more disk space and my usb 3. 0 port back. The 1 mb/sec increase in write speed helps greatly from my 64gb cruzer fit, but the loss in read speed is quite disappointing. It works fine if you want to move your music and movie library to this drive. Playback of 1080p hd movies is fine and near instantaneous. I even use it to download all my torrent files directly too it. I would not reccomend this for any kind of photo editing where you need some bandwidth to move data fast. I save that for my usb 3. 0 flash drives. This is a great buy if you are looking to expand your mac's ssd and use that underutilized sd card reader!

The one i received does what it's supposed to do but aesthetically i thought it was be more flush and didn't realize that i'd have a plastic tab hanging off at the end in order to pull it out. I was a bit disappointed by that and thought it would be cleaner looking.

Performs as expected. Looses one star for the "pull tab" that easily gets creased (bends).

G. Cunningham, Wyoming says

It's a good idea but i prefer the storedge unit better. By the time you buy this and a chip it's about the same price. My "plastic" strap on this card has ripped.

. Gilmore, Arkansas

When i first got this adapter, i was really happy- it fit flush, the plastic tab wasn't too difficult to get out, and it worked as expected. . After 3 months of use, and taking it out and putting it back in approximately 15 times, the plastic tab is starting to rip off, and the plastic casing is falling apart and cracking in multiple places. I assume i have little plastic bits stuck inside my laptop now. . I don't know if the official nifty minidrive is any more reliable than this, but it might be worth a shot.

I just purchased a "theminidrive" for a macbook air 2014 and while it was delivered ahead of schedule the device itself is very poor with the plastic halves that make up the device already coming apart at one end plus the device itself just has a plastic bit of tape attached to it to pull the minidrive out of the macbook. I was expecting a clip or small handle on the device that you could get to with a paperclip if required. . Very disappointing and would not recommend the device to anyone. Stay clear. . Experience seems similar to review written by jooster.

Garbage. Don't waste your money. Here are the issues i have with this product:. . 1) does not fit properly. It is too small for macbook pro 13. 2) poor quality. This looks like someone hastily glued it together in their garage. 3) stopped working within a month.

F. Delgado, Haute-Normandie says

Either i misread the description or the description changed in the past week. I was sure this was compatible with a 13" retina. It is not. Check for compatibility with your laptop! . . Electrically, it works just fine in a 13" macbook retina. Mechanically, it sticks out about 4mm. Depending on how you transport your laptop, this may not be a problem. A loose sleeve or a sleeve that you slip the laptop into "sideways" (short-edge first) is probably fine. A tighter sleeve in which you insert the laptop long-edge first will snag on the minidrive. I worry about the long-term effects of repeated snagging.

Yes this crummy piece of chopped-up plastic does *technically* work. But that is the only reason for the second star. It would only be 1 1/2 star if i could have done that. One reviewer referred to a "half inch piece of plastic used to pull this device out" i think the technical term for that is called scotch-tape. It has the feel of a stolen item, like i got it from a pawn-shop. You can see by the images that even before i put it in, it was scratched, used and cut. It looks like the end was cut off with a band saw in jr high. I took those pictures with the intention of returning the device to online store, but it works. So. I'll keep it, but never recommend it to anyone. Frankly i'm embarrassed to keep it, but i need the space.

Expensive, but does what it's supposed to do.

It's larger than i expected and it fits bad in my macbook pro, anyway arribed in good conditions thank you

Y. Juliana, Newcastle upon Tyne says

The one positive thing i have to say about this is that i like the pull tab to help get the card out, which the other iterations of this don't seem to have. My only reason for not liking this is how deep it sits in the sd slot on my macbook air. It is a little bit of a hassle to get it in all the way, and even more so to get it out. It worked just fine (i returned it and got the one that fit the macbook air better), but i hated how it fit and looked there. Just get the one that fits whichever model macbook you have

The tether (to get it out of the machine) started coming apart within days of purchase.
