This reader can read multiple cards at the same time. I was able to use an SDHC card, a Micro SD and a Memory Stick PRO DUO simultaneously(sorry no compact flash to test). It does do something kind of interesting where it will kind of reserve/mount drive letters for the adapter in my computer. The ones that are grayed out are missing from the card reader.
There is a red led light on top that glows continuously when a card is inserted. The led will blink when data is being accessed. I leave my computer on in my bedroom all night and the light does not bother me. There is a black version of this card reader with the same model number but I wanted the white one. My computer desk is kind of dark and everything around is black plastic it is very easy to see where your inserting your cards with the white plastic.
I fastened this card reader down on the base of my computer monitor two strips of 3M Fastener TB3571/TB3572 (hook and loop, essentially the same as Velcro). I would recommend doing this other wise you fumble around with two hands trying to insert and remove cards. I left the rough hook side attached to the computer monitor in case I needed to take the card reader with me. It just keeps it smoother and from getting snagged on things in a computer/camera bag.
I will try to update this later after I have tested the read/write speeds of a few cards. Also I will have to find an alternative to Crystal Disk Mark. There is a lot of variables that can effect speeds but for now I am writing to a Corsair Neutron GTX SSD that should keep up just fine.
I have a couple of Dell computers which have the 19-in-1 media readers built into them and use them for SD and CF cards but always found them fairly slow when transferring files. The Kingston reader is much faster which seems to be a bit of an anomaly. I would have thought a computers built in reader would have transferred files faster as it is fairly much attached directly to the motherboard.
Setup is super simple. Just plug the media reader into a spare USB 3 port on your computer (it is USB 2 backwards compatible but speeds obviously will reduce greatly), wait for Windows to recognize and off you go. When it is plugged in, the top of the reader will illuminate red which is a nice touch. The supplied USB 3 cable is around 3 feet in length and so should give you plenty enough leeway to place the reader where you wish. This new model supports the latest UHS-II SD cards of which I have a few for my Canon cameras. Although the camera itself doesn't support UHS-II, only UHS-I, the reader does and transfer of pictures from the card onto my system is a lot faster.
The reader itself is just larger than a credit card in area and around a centimeter deep so is also perfect for travelling with and plugging into your laptop. I have had no trouble with the reader accepting varying speed cards (remember to unmount a card via the system tray after you have finished transferring files and don't simply pull the card out).
An excellent product for the price and my only wish is that it would also support CFAST 2.0 and XQD cards as well but for reading SD, micro-SD and CF cards it works great and comes in a good price.
My average transfer rate to PC is 94 MB/s. Considering my memory card is rated to 95 MB/s, I am losing virtually no speed from the card reader.
What more can you say? Well it's small, looks good, and works as advertised. I have been using Kingston in my PCs forever, and only use SanDisk or Kingston memory cards, and have never had any issues.
