Excerpt: I do professional photography. I've had many card readers over the years and wanted to upgrade to USB 3 after getting new computer. After a couple of uses on a compact flash when card inserted it went immediately to FORMAT CARD.
Excerpt: Let me start by saying that I've used SanDisk cards and readers since I bought my first DSLR many years ago and I've always been very happy with them. When I recently bought a new MacBookPro I bought this reader to take advantage of the new USB 3.0 port.
Summary: Very poor item. Pins bend easily, cards can be a tight fit. Although the upright part is connected to a flimsy tripod base by magnetism the weight and thickness of he cable means that in practice it does not stay upright for very long. This said, when it works it is pretty fast.
Summary: I agree with other reviews of this product. It will not stand up on the supplied stand. The USB3 cable is too heavy for it so it constantly falls over.Very poor construction as well, the CF Card slot is suspect and the connector pins bend in the wind.
Summary: This peculiar pice if kit would not stand upright on my desk. I had to resort to binning the stand and allowing the card reader to lie on my desk. The last time that I used it to upload via Lightroom 4 all of the images failed to transfer and, worse, were deleted from the card.To confirm this I shot...
Summary: Bought this as I liked the look. But sadly after using it only four or five times one of the card reader pins detached and it no longer works. To make matters worse, because it broke after 60 days (only 60 days!), I was told that I couldn't get a refund.
Summary: I agree with all of the feedback from other purchasers of this card reader regarding difficulty inserting cards poor design of the magnetic stand etc, to further add to the frustration mine does not read SD cards.
Summary: Let me down badly, not only failing to function properly and reliably, but also costing me a card and some very important pictures of Devils Tower and Little Big Horn. This thing was a disaster for me.
