SanDisk Extreme Pro SD UHS-II Reader/Writer USB 3.0 SDDR-399

Introduction

The SanDisk Extreme Pro SD UHS-II SD Reader/Writer is a single-slot compact USB 3.0 SD card reader. It supports full-size SD and can operate in UHS-I and UHS-II modes.

The SanDisk reader is compatible with Max OS 10.3x+, Windows 7/8/10. It supports USB 3.0 and is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 connections. It is backed by a two year warranty. The reader tested is model SDDR-399-G46 UPC 619659146641. The reader is made in China.

Externally, the reader has a plastic case with brushed metal accent panel on top. There is a card access light on the top of the reader above the brushed metal panel. The ends and side of the reader and the slider are high gloss plastic while the top and bottom have a textured appearance. The reader has a lightweight and hollow feeling but is sufficiently rigid.

The body of the reader is tapered on the end next to the USB Type-A connector. Unlike the previous model SDDR-329 Extreme Pro UHS-II USB 3.0 reader, the SDDR-399 has no quirky slider. There is a single card slot on the end of the reader. Initially the card slot on the reader was extremely tight to the extent that removing some SD cards was difficult. Some cards were comfortably snug while others were hard to remove even when using fingernails. Over time the slot loosened after inserting several dozen cards, but still remains a tight fit.

The reader measures 2.5 x 1.25 x 0.31 inches (64 x 32 x 8mm) including the USB plug. The reader is small but it may cause interference with USB ports located close together.

Performance

The SDDR-399 UHS-II reader was benchmarked with UHS-I and UHS-II SD cards. The highest benchmarks were 302.1 MB/s sequential read and 266.4 MB/s sequential write.

Using UHS-I cards the reader reached sequential benchmarks of 99.3 MB/s read and 94.7 MB/s write.
