Decent card-reader

Anonymous, Newegg
2 July 2010
  • Summary: The card reader in my laptop dynamically creates a drive and assigns it a letter when a card is inserted; this is a much better system, to my mind (although there may, of course, be drawbacks of which I am unaware; some unknown unknowns, as it were).
  • Pros: Lightweight, moderately compact, CF transfer speeds are around double what I get using my camera's USB connection, hinged cover keeps dust/hair/grime out of the card slots when the reader is not in use - especially useful if you carry it around with you, or even if you just leave it on the desk i...
  • Cons: The reader sits on the cover when it is open and this makes it a little wobbly when firmly seating a card in the unit, although this isn't a huge deal. The biggest issue I have is that the unit has to assign a separate drive letter to each card slot on the device, which is potentially problematic...

Fast Card Reader - works great

Patty F., Newegg

  • Summary: Great fast card reader and the cover closes to protect it while traveling.
  • Pros: Read my SD camera cards with lightening fast speed - very impressive. Bought the Lexar reader to replace a painfully slow other brand reader.
  • Cons: The slot wasn't labeled - not that I saw but the manual listed them all so I labeled them myself with a marker.

Fast reader

Anonymous, Newegg
29 November 2009
  • Summary: I've used the cheap ones and the read write speed is only 2mb/s . With this one , it transfer files at the true read write speed of your cards. Especially with wedding photographers , copying 40gbs of raw file to computer will take forever this card reader is a must have in every photographer's bag.
  • Pros: Fast reader 16mb/s on CF extreme3. 8gb card takes 7to 8 minute to copy to HDD.
  • Cons: none

Great Gadget

Renee B., Newegg
18 September 2009
  • Summary: Probably have to have some kind of photo editing software installed on computer which I already had.
  • Pros: I'm using it on a regular basis for 2 different types of media (smart media cards for an older Olympus digital camera & mini sd for my new Nikon D40) & it works great! Also used it once with a 3rd type of media. Great design & very easy to use...thank heavens!! Plug into computer with USB cable &...
  • Cons: Can't think of anything...completely satisfied.

Excellent product

Mary K., Newegg
22 July 2008
  • Pros: Fast. At a recent family reunion I was Mr. AudioVideo, offloading pictures off everyone's cameras for the daily evening picture show. I think 3 GB in three minutes is pretty good throughput. That works out to 16.6 MB/sec. by the way. It also has a cover, so it seals up tight when you are not usin...
  • Cons: None.

This has worked well

  • Pros: Read all the cards that I wanted it to and had no trouble. We ended up buying 3 of these. The fact that it closes up makes it nice for travel.
  • Cons: None.

Works just fine

  • Summary: I purchased this model from Walmart's photo department because my camera's SM and SD cards are getting full. When I first used it - it was simple to install, no CD required when working with XP system.
  • Pros: 12 in 1 card reader, compact, cable can be detached from actual device, light weight
  • Cons: Plastic feels cheap, surface can be easily scratched
