Help on card readers: internal vs. external, USB 2.0 vs. 3.0
Aug 6, 2013

Hi, I need to get a new card reader for transferring photos from SDHC to my PC as the old and cheap USB reader has given up the ghost. However having difficulty deciding exactly what is the best option for good performance at a reasonable price. I had intended to get an internal reader to fit in a 3.5 bay but can't figure out if there is any real difference in speed between the generic parts and branded goods which cost several times as much. Also are internal readers any quicker than external and would having USB 3.0 be an advantage?

Been searching around but haven't been able to find any reviews which help.

Any advice appreciated
