Very Fast!!

  • Excerpt: My new computer has a built in card reader but did not support the larger compact Flash cards. Bought this as a stand alone, to cover every card out there. It runs on the newer USB 3.0 and is much faster than even the higher speed USB 2.0. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars was due to the hefty price and the white only color (great if you have a Mac), that does not match any of my other computer components. Excellent product, covers all bases, and does it FAST!

SanDisk ImageMate 3.0 USB Reader

JSA Photography, Staples

  • Excerpt: The SanDisk ImageMate All-in-One USB 3.0 Memory Card Reader is a must have device for anyone who transfer large photo image files from your camera to a computer. A professional photographer will sure find this device a great tool to put in his or her camera bag. But the only negative comment I would add is the magnetic plate that attaches the card reader to the stand came off right out of the box when I opened it.
  • Pros: Excellent Interface, Fast Transfer, Lightweight, Long Cable, Reliable

Works great but magnetic base unreliable

  • Excerpt: I got this reader to be a permanent fixture at my photography workstation. I like this reader. It's fast, with the latest USB protocol, and looks cool. I found however that the supplied USB cable is rather stiff, such that the reader won't stay put on the tripod base because it's attached by magnet. The ferrous strip wasn't seated well on my instance so maybe that's why. Either way the product needs a little more work either in design or their quality control.
  • Pros: Fast Transfer, Looks Cool, Reliable
  • Cons: Magnetic Dock Fails, Stiff Cable

Useful

  • Excerpt: Someone asked, "Does the strange angled silver base come off the main white body?" Yes, it does. In fact I find it easier to take it off and lay it down on its side for use. It's a little light to stand up very well when inserting or removing cards.
  • Pros: Durable Dock, Excellent Interface, Fast Transfer, Lightweight, Long Cable, Reliable

Time saver!!!!!!

  • Excerpt: Definitely will save you time. Transferred 32GB CF card of RAW and JPEG images in 15 minutes compared to 40 minutes using a 2.0 USB card reader. Staples price matched at the register so I am satisfied that I received the best price! The one draw back was that there is a magnetic plate that attaches the card reader to the stand which came un-glued within a few minutes after removing from the package, I just lay it on top of the computer without any problems.
  • Pros: Fast Transfer, Lightweight

Works great, priced ok, a little clunky size-wise

  • Summary: Knocked off a star because of physical size/design. This reader work just fine, but could use some overall slimming down in size. Also, the generic USB cord is about what you'd expect to get with a printer instead of a small card reader. I believe with today's cable technology the cable could be much thinner and more flexible. No real problems, though, the reader works great, and has been very fast and reliable.

Fast access to my pictures

  • Summary: I bought this card reader to replace one that rarely managed to download my pictures without a great deal of fiddling and plugging and unplugging the USB cable. The ScanDisk ImageMate was immediately recognised as a drive both by Windows Explorer and Directory Opus which is my favoured file manager. Access to the ScanDisk Extreme SD card was immediate and Lightroom 5.0 started to access my pictures within 15 seconds.

Fast ... but problem on Mac

29 May 2013
  • Summary: Because there are problems using it with older slower memory cards, and you can't use a Mac to update the firmware, it's not recommended for Mac-only users.
  • Pros: Fast
  • Cons: Mac Can Not Update It, Needs A Pc To Update, Update Needed For Mac

Impressive performance.

  • Summary: Super performance from this reader even with large images. Speed and response magnificent and even the style is excellent. Disappointed with the magnetic stand which is not up to the job and continually falls to the floor. Great unit spoilt by a design error. Pity really.
