Plenty of inexpensive USB-C memory card adapters are now on the market. But would you consider spending about $50 for one? If it’s the SanDisk Extreme Pro UHS-II SD Card USB-C Reader ($47 on Amazon), the answer is yes.
Why? Pure speed. Of the adapters we tested, the Extreme Pro UHS-II boasted the fastest transfer speeds for both photos and video files. Primarily that’s due to compatibility with UHS-II cards, but it also produced top speeds for UHS-I cards. If you absolutely need the quickest way to shuttle image and video files onto your MacBook Pro, this is the adapter to buy.
