The reader is made from plastic with a brushed appearance. It is relatively compact measuring 2.25″ x 1.375″ x 0.5″ with the USB plug retracted. You can only insert a card when the USB plug retracted. Press the leading edge of the slider to release and slide across to extend the USB plug. It locks into position when it reaches the end of its travel. It is tricky to get the feel of the slider, but once you get the hang of it, it works OK. This design means you can not remove the card unless you unplug the reader
The SanDisk UHS-II reader provided some of the fastest speeds of eight different USB 3.0 SD card readers I tested. Benchmarks were done using CrystalDiskMark 3.0.3, best of 5 passes, 1GB random data, sequential reads/writes

Several UHS-I cards measured slightly above their speed ratings. This reader is one of the fastest you can buy. Unfortunately the design is less than ideal if you swap a lot of cards. If you only read cards occasionally it may not be an issue. You might also consider the Kingston MobileLite G4. It offers similar performance including UHS-II support without the sliding design
