Excerpt: I had one I had paid $50 for and it failed after about 6 months. This one works just fine. Some people complained about the cable, it's a standard USB 3 cable. It's a bit short but I like it better than having 4 feet of cable all tangled up.
Excerpt: I use this with my new Macbook Pro, connected through a powered USB 3 hub. Most other card readers I was finding were huge (taking up a large footprint on my desk) or were USB 2 and would have slowed down the whole hub to the old protocol. This has been perfect so far. It lives on my desk but seems sturdy enough to stand up to being thrown in a camera bag.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Small, Usb 3
