Summary: This allows full-speed access to the faster flash memory cards coming out now. On some card readers, the USB 2.0 interface would be a bottleneck, but not with this one - you will be able to use the full speeds of these new cards. It supports all the latest card formats - SDHC, SDHC UHS-I, SDXC, SDXC UHS-I and microSD (without an adapter). The firmware can be updated so it might be able to support future standards.
Summary: Super fast Card reader. it was reading and writing to my SanDisk 64GB SDXC 45mb/s rated card at around 40-43mb/s, so basically the max the card could put out. Only tried with SDXC, SDHC cards as I do not have any CF Cards. Great price on sale.
Pros: Super fast Card reader. it was reading and writing to my SanDisk 64GB SDXC 45mb/s rated card at around 40-43mb/s, so basically the max the card could put out., Great price on sale, Only tried with SDXC, SDHC cards.
Cons: Wish it had a USB port in front not not waste my USB3 port.
Summary: This product is good overall. It uses usb 3.0 to transfer data which is quite faster compared to usb 2.0. The card reader Kingston Logo glows red when there's something inserted. I thing that I would like to see from this good product is for it to have rubber feet. Without it, the card reader is prone to slip when inserting the card into it. I used sticky tact for my quick fix.
Pros: Small, cable(long enough), usb 3.0, external
Summary: The Kingston logo lights up when a card is inserted and there's read/write activity but unfortunately it's a tad bright. On the upshot the price is great and the performance you can wring out of it is top notch.
Summary: Get this card reader even if you only have USB2 now! You will appreciate it when you upgrade to a computer which has USB3.0. Its an extremely reliable card reader even if you dont buy it for the increased speed. This card reader does everything as expected, and is quite fast when connected to a USB3.0 port. When using a Sandisk Extreme 16gb SDHC card I get about 45 MB/sec read.
