Useless on a Mac

Adorama
16 December 2013
  • 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. Unfortunately, the firmware for the reader needs to be upgraded in order for the reader to function. This wouldn't be a big deal except the upgrade can only be accomplished on a Windows computer which I've never owned.

  • Summary: One of the pins for the compact flash slot was bent over inside the reader which meant the cards didn't quite fit. Only realised this after it was too late to return.

Rubbish

Avery, Amazon
29 May 2014
  • 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.

An embarrassment to the SanDisk brand

mustela, Amazon
27 January 2014
  • Summary: Quite possibly the worst card reader I've had. The pins in the CF slot are far too easy to bend The SD slot died after 3 months or so and won't read any cards Constantly disconnects so that you have to keep unplugging it and plugging it back in.

Interferes with wireless mice

Daniel Kustrin, Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: I am not a fan, let's be honest. The "leg" design is very poor (i had to throw the leg away and blutack the unit to my desk) and it interferes with my wireless mouse (MS 5000). Once a card is in the reader (only tested with sd cards) the mouse starts stuttering and becomes pretty much useless. Take the card out and the mouse it back and happy. This is so annoying that I don't use this reader any more and have had to go back to an old usb2 reader I had for years.

Should have read the reviews first!

Cameraman, WEX
17 September 2013
  • 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.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction

Over priced, poor construction. Avoid

OTBack, WEX
10 April 2013
  • 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. If you are looking for a card reader then avoid this one at all costs!
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, Overpriced

Looks nice but badly engineered

tomalprice, Amazon
3 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this product due to the reputation of the Sandisk brand and the clean aesthetics of the product. However, the card drawer/grooves do not allow the card to travel well into the reader. Often you have to try a few times before you've lined the pins up with the card. The other day, I was on a job: the pins bent and that was that. Having never experienced this before, even with much cheaper units, I was pretty shocked and disappointed that it let me down.

Don't bother buying SanDisk USB 3.0

MelenCourses, WEX
26 January 2013
  • Summary: Not up to SanDisk's usual standard. Magnetic stand is pathetic. They have designed this for the photo and not for the user.
  • Pros: Quick
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction, Keeps Failing To Upload
