There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
First PC was Windows 10 desktop. USB 3 mobo port recognized and assigned 4 empty drive letters, but did not acknowledge any of 3 SD cards (2GB, 16GB, 32GB), even though the obnoxious Kingston red logo flashed for 60 seconds after inserting it. "please insert a disk into the removbable media slot"... blah.
Second PC was Windows 7 laptop. USB3 port recognized one drive letter and asked me to format it... with or without the SD card inserted. The "format" attempt did not work.
Attempt to upgrade firmware did not work (dead links on Kingston website for this).
Even tried a different USB3 wide cable. No dice.
Returning for a different brand and model.
Unfortunately this item is junk. The two times it worked it was very fast, but after that the connection is not stable. It stops and can't read and then it connects and then stops again. I tried 2 other USB-C cables and 3 computers and it is the product. Unfortunately for me it didn't die until after the 30 day return period and twenty bucks isn't worth dealing with the warranty. My old Sandisk reader is still going after 10 years. Shame on me for not sticking with the brand that's always worked.
I bought another as I do like the performance in transferring imaged form the CF and SD cards to the computer. The USB 3.0 allows fast transfer. The cable on the new version is slightly longer than the last which is welcomed.
I use three different memory cards on a regular basis which includes CF, SD and MicroSD and this card reader is a good choice to leave on my desktop.
Otherwise very nice product
File transferring speed with this reader
Lexar MicroSDHC 633x 32GB - about 25mb/s
SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB SDHC - about 35mb/s
Tested on Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2 running Linux Mint 17.2 64 bit Cinnamon. I plugged into the USB 3 hub of an AFT Pro-77U USB internal bay mounted hub and multi-card reader, booted the computer, and tested SD and CF cards. Upon insertion of a memory card, the red Kingston logo on top of the reader flashes and Linux detects and mounts the card. The much more expensive AFT Pro-77U hub works in Linux, but not the card reader. I have an old USB 2 multi-AFT card reader, which also does not work in Linux. The AFT Pro-77U is connected to one of the midboard USB 3 connections on the motherboard.
