Cable Matters USB 3.1 Type-C Dual Slot Card Reader

I like to review photos from my Nikon DSLR camera on a Chromebook and upload them to Google Photos. Unfortunately the Pixelbook doesn’t have a card reader but it does have two USB-C ports. I bought a Cablematters USB-C card reader for $11.99 on Amazon. The reader is plastic but seems solid. The cable appears sturdy. It should last a while. It works well on Android devices and Chromebooks. In this video I demo it with a Pixel 2 phone and a Pixelbook Chromebook.
