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: 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.
Summary: Fastest I've ever experienced downloading raw files from CF cards. I can never go back to USB 2 after using this. I now have two of these and am completely satisfied with its performance. Price has gone down quite a bit in just a few months. $18.99 sale price is a steal!
Summary: What can I say? I bought it to support higher card speeds and to be able to manipulate multiple cards simultaneously. I have yet to do a performance test with this reader on a USB 2.0 port running a UHS-I SD card. My hope is that the reader will use the UHS-I speed regardless of the port type the reader is connected to. At the very least I hope there is still some performance gain using this reader on a USB 2.0 port versus using a USB 2.0 reader.
Pros: USB 3.0, compact, relatively long cord, USB 2.0 compatible, supports SDXC, supports UHS-I speeds, LOGO lights up when active and flashes during activity/data transfer, can use the multiple card type slots simultaneously & eject the card type slots independantly. Detects as a bootable Zip device in some PCs if connected during POST/Bootup, on sale for $20 or less you get faster speed support for the same price as USB 2.0 card readers, even the packaging is nice and com...
Cons: Only 4 card slots versus the Verbatim brand with 5 or 6 card slots.
Summary: If you shoot high res photos or transfer large files to SD cards for a tablet or phone then you NEED a USB 3.0 reader. The difference in transfer times is incredible. I have this unit double side taped to the bottom of my desk so it is fairly hidden and I love it.
