Super fast, even with USB 2.0
on October 29, 2013
I have a Nikon D300 camera which only works with CF card. I had three different USB 2.0 card readers, one of them was Sandisk multi-card reader. All of them were extremely slow on my Macbook with USB 2.0. Sandisk one was the fastest, which took about 20 minutes to copy 8GB from CF - that is, if it doesn't lose connection during transfer. This one took 4 minutes. I guess this one utilizes 100% of USB 2.0, and pretty sure that it will be much faster on USB 3.0. (Too sad that I don't have anything which support USB 3.0 yet.) By the way, it is not cheap plastic. It's made with anodized aluminum and goes really well with my Macbook Pro.
Highly recommended. Don't by generic junks. This one is the real deal.
