Customer Reviews

It looks like the reader will come off the stand rather easily.
Ron in South Florida
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 use several different brands of cards up to 1000x and these readers work perfectly for me.

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.

After coming back from a recent Spain Trip, I was excited to load photos into the computer for processing. It loaded 3 CF cards and on the 4th one, the LED just blinks and nothing was happening. On the close inspection, I saw one of pins on the edge was completely bent. It was purchased in August 2012. Being careful I always insert the CF cards slowly but it did not help with the design of this card reader. The SD cards can be read fine as there are no pins to be bent.

I own 4 SanDisk CF and multicard USB 2.0 readers and none have ever had bent CF pins. Comparing this new USB 3.0 multi-reader with the old USB 2.0 SanDisk readers, one can see the difference right away. This new one has much shorter slot depth and the fitting is quite loose so the CF card has a tendency to wobble and causes bent pins. The CF slot depth is about 1" with previous SanDisk card readers and only 1/2" on this one. No wonder the CF card can jam the pins so easy. This is a horrible design! I would never buy any CF card reader in the future without sufficient (~1") slot depth.

I am disappointed in the design of this SanDisk card reader. I bought this SanDisk reader because all 4 previous SanDisk CF or multicard readers have no bent pins ever with frequent use. I guess I have to look at the design of future purchases of SanDisk cards more carefully before keeping it.

I am going to contact SanDisk for a replacement. In the meantime, I ordered two replacement readers, Kingston's USB 3.0 Media Reader Computer Memory FCR-HS3 and

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.
