As soon as I received this, I knew it was a poor design.
Nikon User
In fact when insert card to the cf slot , u must be very careful, never know if you are inserting the card or bending those pins.

I almost sent the card back but decided to buy a Kingston FCR-HS3 because of its design and looks.

I found this on the SanDisk site first and of course it was marked a lot higher. I checked on Amazon found it cheaper but the picture was not the one listed on the website although the part numbers and description matched. I expected I was going to receive a white one, although I could have cared less what color it is. The little base works fine, just don't banana finger gorilla slam a card in. The transfer rate seems a lot faster than on my Nikon D700 eventhough I am still using USB 2.0. I figured I would purchase 3.0 now because eventually I will upgrade to a machine with it.

I have used this on my MacBook Pro for about 1 month now and I have had no complaints. This is exactly what I was looking for and much cheaper than a Firewire 800 reader. My main reason for purchase was so I could do firmware updates on my D700, but now I use it use it for all of my card reading. Additionally the item is small making it convenient to take with on my deployments and other travel. I would pay little attention to the other two reviews, some people are just never satisfied. USB 3.0 cords are fat, this is my second 3.0 device and you just have to manipulate into a position that works for you.

If your not satisfied with the stand, you can just use it without it, it works both ways. The stand just adds a bit of elegance to an already impressive card reader.

I just started using this card reader and I am very pleased. It's very fast. Even when I plug it into a USB 2.0 port it's faster than my older SanDisk USB 2.0 reader (about 3 years old). I didn't put a stopwatch to my tests. But, it was visibly quicker. When I plugged it into my USB 3 port, I was blown away by it's speed.

I have both a Windows 7 machine (new Dell desktop, i7 chip, 8 gig ram, USB 3 port) and a year old MacBook Air running OS X 10.7.4. It worked fine on both machines. No issues.

I tried older 1 and 4 gig cards and a new 16gig UDMA card. No problems with any of them. NOTE: I only have CF cards and they are SanDisk. I don't have any equipment that uses any other type of card (SD, etc.).

Nothing against the other manufacturers. But, for me, SanDisk has always worked and I've been lucky to never have a card fail on me (knock on wood). I'll be with a group of photographers next week and I'll try some of their non-SanDisk cards and see what happens. If there is a problem, I'll update my review.

I agree with the comments about the stand. It looks like the reader will come off the stand rather easily. I use velcro to attach my reader and portable drives to the underside of the shelf I use as a monitor stand. So, I won't be using the stand. It's still sitting in its little baggy.

There are quite a few comments about receiving a white card reader and dinging the rating for it. It looks like the USB 2.0 reader is black and the 3.0 is white. A little annoying I guess. But that doesn't impact the functionality of the reader. I'm very pleased with the reader so far and I would recommend it to others.

1) Performance works as advertised with USB 3.0 and varies with cards.

2) Metal base is light, held to reader with weak magnet, and does not provide a stable stand.
Mainly for cleaner looking storage base since you need to hold the reader to insert or remove
cards.

3) I hoped newer stock was black... but received WHITE.

Picture is wrong, please update picture or description. One could argue it is "bait and switch" since no color is stated in the description and only unit displayed is black. Not a deal breaker. 4-stars since stand is almost useless and received WHITE.

I have the SanDisk ImageMate connected to an iMac (July 2011) via USB2.0. I mainly use it to transfer video content from CF cards used in my Canon XF105 for archiving and processing in Final Cut Pro X. The reader does a great job and I'm very happy with it.

Previously, I could only achieve good transfer speeds (reading from CF & SD media is my main need) when I directly connected my camera via it's USB 2.0 interface. Transfers with other card readers were significantly slower, with transfer durations as much as 2 or 3 times longer! With this card reader, the transfer rate (reading from the media) is not noticeably different versus direct camera connection.

Using Black Magic I achieved the following performance:

Test conditions:
-- USB2.0 (iMac doesn't have USB3.0)
-- 32GB SanDisk Extreme CF card (this CF Card rated at 60MB/s)
-- 2GB test

Test result (see uploaded picture):
-- Write 23.3 MB/s
-- Read 31.0 MB/s

For me the read is far more important, as that's the process I normally need and I'm very happy with this rate.

Note 1: Why USB2.0 tests?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Why buy the USB3.0 device when my Mac's only equipped with USB2.0? I have USB3.0 on my PC, which is used more for photos but I've done no bench mark there yet. If there's interest I can test from there also. Also forward planning for when I introduce USB3.0 to my video workflow.

NOTE 2: Regarding the Stand criticism...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Using the stand design as a reason to rate the product down is very strange to me. I actually feel the design is very good and provides desirable flexibility with NO downside.
