Also some documentation and instructions with downloadable drivers would help.

I have an older MacBook Pro with a PCI34 slot and this works perfectly for me.

So far I have had no issues with this card reader. Only sucky part is the design by apple where if you push it in to hard it springs back and ejects. So you either have to take the entire card reader out, put a new card in and reinsert or just be really carefull taking the cards in and out of the reader.

Use this on an older macbook pro. Works great, fast and easy. This makes it so easy to use the compact flash card. Wish it came with a case to protect it as I worry that it may get damaged with travel, but then I will just have to be careful. Product seems to be good quality. I feel that this is faster than using a USB reader. I miss my 2 card slots (PCMCIA I think) on my old Apple Wallstreet that allowed the reader to fit inside the computer. You have to be careful with the reader as it sticks out and you could damage it while using it in the computer.

I got this reader after getting fed up with my new Lexar CF Expresscard reader. I unwrapped it, popped it in the computer, and my card came up instantly. Transfer speeds are blazing and Aperture itself is now the bottleneck, not the reader or card, but that's okay. The reader is pretty sturdy compared to Lexar's, but it is still possible to snap it where the white plastic meets the metal body. It shipped to me in a plain static bag so you have to come up with your own way to tote it around. I keep mine in a spare case for my sunglasses. The red LED is solid when the card is idle, blinks lightly when transferring, but stays lit even when you eject the card through the OS so its a little confusing that way. I'm pretty quick to eject and pull it and I've never gotten my hand slapped by Mac OS.

I just transferred 639 photos totalling 3.77 GB to the desktop and it took 1:57.1 to complete.

A CF card is 1 7/16" (36mm) tall. When inserted in the reader only 3/8" (9mm) goes in leaving the vast majority of the CF card hanging out. This could be good or bad, depending on how you look at it. I'm cool with it.

At the price point, this is a great product. The expresscard slot on my older 2008 Macbook Pro required no setup and was up and running as fast as I could insert the adapter. The best thing about the product was the lack of packaging. It came in one of the static shield bags most other computer components are enclosed within. No box, no paperwork, no instructions, no CD with drivers, nothing else was included and therefore, very little waste was generated.

The only downside to the product is that the white adapter interface that is not inserted into the expresscard slot is slightly cantilevered - it is not flush with the body of the laptop (hence the 4 stars). So, aesthetically it's not the most elegant design, but it does the job of freeing up a valuable USB port. I would advise against leaving it plugged into the laptop during transit for the same reason.

Just got this adapter for my Macbook Pro and it's *ridiculous*. I can't believe I've been using a USB adapter for so long; large (32 gig) photo transfers were taking all day, and with this adapter they were done in an hour. Inexpensive, and definitely up to the task.

I received the CF Express Card Reader Adapter earlier than anticipated. I plugged the Compact Flash card from my camera into the device and inserted it into the Express Card slot on my Lenovo W510 running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. My CF card was immediately recognized, and I was able to transfer my pictures to the PC without any difficulty. The adapter works perfectly!

I have an older MacBook Pro with a PCI34 slot and this works perfectly for me. (New MacBook pros don't have this slot.) Since my laptop also has one FW800 and one FW400, this expands my options. I can transfer from CF card in this slot directly to a hard drive connected to the FW800 slot for fastest possible data transfer, in my opinion. FW800 CF card reader is great, but then that port is used. Plus for $13.98 you can't go wrong. I made a little case to protect it when it's not in use since it comes with no case and I travel with it. Great deal and it's nice to put that PCI34 slot to good use.

I purchased this ExpressCard for Compact Flash from Amazon and almost returned it, BUT... (I don't have a life and wanted a challenge)
The driver is on mini-CD (i.e. not MacBook Pro compatible) and they are only for Windows (in CF folder). MacBook Pro 5.1 and up should operate the ExpressCard w/CF ok out of the box (mine did). However my 2008 MacBook Pro didn't and I needed a driver. First I converted the mini-CD to full size at the raw (base) level and tried Virtual Windows on the Mac - nope, don't waste your time! Next I grabbed the Mac ExpressCard driver from the Lexar website (JMicronATADriver.dmg) and it works fine. Procedure to make this ExpressCard work on your Mac (assuming it doesn't out of the box) is to 1) grab the Lexar driver 2) plug in a CF to the ExpressCard 3) plug in the CF/ExpressCard into the Mac 4) insert the CD with driver into the Mac, or do it online but you need to unzip the file first 5) click open the .dmg file and follow the instructions -- restart as the instructions tell you and bingo this ExpressCard for Compact Flash will work like a champ. I rated this product a 2 since there is no instruction, no driver for a Mac, no manufacture website to go to, and is a hassle! But it is fast and has handled any CF I've thrown at it and worth the money. NOTE there are a bunch of Trademarked words/phrases in here - so it is for your personal use only.
