Very fast and reliable.

I use only 4GB and 8GB Compact Flash UDMA and SDHC cards, and have had no problems with the Lexar dual-slot card reader.

I had to resort to downloading with a cable connected to the camera.

<Update 12/16/2011> This still our primary card reader and it is used on average once a week and it has never disappointed us with reliability or speed. All of our other CF readers failed to achieve this. We even use the SD slot more and more because when you walk away, it does not really matter if it is 18MB/s or 24MB/s. Note that they now have a USB 3.0 version.

<Here is the original review 6 weeks after purchasing it in 12/2008>

I recently purchased a Canon Vixia HF100 camcorder and knew the files would be HUGE, so I was looking for the fastest SD card download set up I could find.

I initially bought this Lexar Pro UDMA Dual-Slot Reader and a SanDisk 16GB Extreme III 30MB/s SDHC card hoping for at least 20MB/s performance from the SDHC Card.

Alas, this Lexar reader only gave me 18MB/s performance on this SDHC card, so I purchased the Sandisk SDDR199 to achieve 24MB/s for the SDHC card and I use this Lexar reader for our CF cards.

I like the Lexar reader a lot. I perceive it to be of better quality and I like that it protects the slots from my kids who have already bent the pins on another CF reader by jamming something into the inviting slot. I like the simplicity of having just two slots. The included usb cable is too short to reach my desk, however it is a standard cable so I just use the cable for the Sandisk (1 cable, two readers).

I am going throw away all the other card readers that have proven themselves to be highly unreliable, slow to respond and not worth their cheap price.

I would love to see someone make a firewire (or esata) SD/CF combo reader because I read that Firewire CF card readers are getting about 40 MB/s.

I really like the Lexar Dual-slot USB reader. It's fast, compact, and comes with great documentation.

The "0" part is I ordered it from Beach Camera through Amazon.com. The package looked factory-sealed to me, but even though the box and the documentation stated the USB cable was included--wait for it--the USB cable was missing.

Yep..I had an extra cable and was in business right away, but jeez--yet another camera dealer apparently stripping accessories from products!

WARNING!!!! THIS READER DOESN'T FORMAT 32GB CF CARDS. I would have given it a four star if lexar is upfront with this info. No such info can be found any where. I actually found out about this after going through all the trouble of diagnosing why it doesn't format my new 32gb cf card myself first, then I called lexar tech support which the tech struggled for a long time before he learned and concluded that this lexar card reader does not support 32gb yet. Doesn't make a lot of sense because my other 5 year old cf card reader reads and formats the new 32gb just fine, but it's the truth. The sad part is that they don't have any info on any firmware update for it.

UPDATE!!
Now I am completely disappointed with this card reader, it's worth half a star now. I bought this card reader for my new 32GB CF card to be used on the canon 5D2. After I format the 32GB CF card and used on the 5D2, this Lexar card reader can't even read it and hangs my computer. My other old and slower CF card reader reads my new 32GB CF card just fine. I asked Lexar tech support and he suggested I buy two 16GB instead. DUHH!!! I bought this lexar card reader solely for the extra speed for handling large memory cards, not smaller ones.

I have a 32GB UDMA CF card that I use in my Canon 5D Mark II. I bought this hoping to get fast transfer of video and pictures from this memory card. When I used this reader with a smaller memory card (8 GB CF and 16 GB SD card) it worked fine. When I used my 32 GB card it hung up on download and crashed. When I tried to re-open the card it was showing up as if it was not formatted. I tried to put it back in the camera and the camera no longer recognized it as formatted. I tried running data recovery software and it gave several thousand "read errors". Finally I used an $8 card reader borrowed from a friend and ran the same software to successfully recover my images. This software cost me $100 to recover the images that this CF reader damaged!

THIS CARD READER IS GARBAGE IF YOU HAVE A 32GB CARD! Actually it is worse than garbage, garbage wouldn't work this actually caused damage and could have caused me to lose data. Luckily it only cost me $100. I wish I would have believed the review here that already states this with regard to 32 GB cards.

Even if you don't have a 32GB card I would stay away - some day in the future you might have one and I would hate for you to take the risk of loosing any of your data.

Thanks to Prosoft who makes Data Rescue II for the Mac - this software saved the pictures and videos from my family vacation.

I got this card reader for use with my MacBook Pro which lives inside a Pelican briefcase. This card reader fits perfectly in a pouch on the briefcase and what's more, it has just two slots, CF & SD, which happens to be the only cards I'll ever need to read. It's fast and reliable. I originally went with a cheap multi-card reader and it worked, but it would take 45 minutes to download a 2GB CF card. That was simply unacceptable so I went and got this. Now my 2GB card takes less than two minutes to download. Big difference.

If you are in the market for a CF & SD card reader, this one is perfect for you... I think so anyway : )
