Excerpt: This Transcend RDF8 multi card reader, is quite small, making it very easy to carry along. It is ideal for me, because I can use it for both CF and SD cards. The fact that image transfers take place VERY quickly, is an added bonus. I am thinking about ordering another one for my other camera bag. This is a very useful item, and very inexpensive as well.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Versatile, Very affordable
Excerpt: No faster than the USB cable from camera, with crashing on transfer. Poor quality, pixelated NEF images on Nikon Transfer. Converts RAW/NEF to unconvertible file (to JPEG, etc.) I just threw it out, not worth the postage to return it.
Excerpt: This card reader works perfectly with my Windows 7 laptop. I use this device to transfer large camera raw files as well as mp4 videos. The USB 3.0 interface really makes the transfers faster. I also load SD and microSD cards for reviewing on a tablet. Reading and writing are both fast and reliable. I recommend using good memory cards as the "no-name" brands tend to be inconsistent and unreliable. Just plug it in and use it. Painless and reliable!
