There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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.
Went to the Kingston web site and there are no drivers for it. Troubleshooting says to plug the unit into a powered USB which I did. Still nothing.
Went back to using my 10 dollar, USB 3, SUNPAK 72-in-1 high speed card reader that I've had for 5 years. Works like a charm: https://www.amazon.com/Sunpak-72-in-1-Card-Reader-Black
Sometimes you don't get what you pay for. SMH
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.

It's a relatively small unit, made of plastic with what seems like a metal cover on the top. The cover has a Kingston logo on it that lights up red when a card is inserted/accessed and the unit also comes with about 1m USB cable. For size comparison I'd say the unit was about the same width and depth as a credit card and 2cm high.
I bought this reader mainly for use with SDHC and CF cards but it also has slots for microSDHC/microSDXC and MS/DUO cards as well. It's connected to the USB hub on my Dell monitor and with a Lexar Professional 133x SDHC card inserted it writes at about 18MB/s which I find more than adequate for my needs.
It's worked flawlessly every time I've inserted a card unlike the previous device I had that, whilst a 3rd of the price of this unit, caused more problems than it was worth.

However, I plugged this Kingston reader in and was getting even faster speeds.
When copying from card to my PC, 238 files, around 10MB each (2.38GB total) these are the figures for comparison:
Kingston max speed 70MB/s.
Transcend max speed of 49MB/s
Just for a further comparison, I put a different card (Sandisk Extreme III) into the Kingston reader and it gave around 20MB/s so if speed is your need, it is worth spending a little bit more and getting UDMA cards to get the benefit from this reader
Speeds aside, this is a nicely-built box and the cards fit well. The bright red logo flashes while transferring and stays on on a steady glow when the card is just sitting in it. For photo editing this is a distraction, so you'll want to take the card out once you are done if like me you have the reader sitting on your desk near the monitors.
I'll be getting another one of these when I need one!
On the downside, an SDHC II card must be pushed very firmly home, or full contact—essential to high speed performance—does not seem to be made. (These cards have an extra set of contacts to increase transfer speed.)
Under Linux the reader just works. (Tested with Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04)
Excellent product reasonably priced. Made life so much easier. Use my camera most days and now no longer have to worry about finding save space for the camera in the office while connected to the computer. Just slip the cf card in the reader and use the sdha untill I ger a moment to do the transfer. I could even have the software automatically detect and download the new images but I like to be in direct control. The light indicator is big and bold and would be difficult to miss.
