Wow! It works well AND was cheap!
After years of having an internal multi-format card reader I was dreading needing to get an external one. I read up on a dozen different models and decided the price and good reviews of this one made it worth taking a chance. I am using it on an iMac with 3 card sizes: SD, CompactFlash, and MicroSD. All work great. Hooking it up was instant. The transfer rate is spectacular especially when not hooked up through a USB hub.
Do I wish the cards were easier to get back out? Sure, but they’re only a fraction more awkward to get out than my internal card reader and no worse than any other external model. It’s nice to be truly pleased with product.
UPDATE Feb 07, 2012
Just putting out word that almost 4 years later this is still working great. Cheers!
Contact Tech Support before shipping back. Needs Firmware Update!
Out of box, this card reader DID NOT work with my Transcend 8GB CF cards. I contacted tech support and requested a firmware update if it was available. After the update, this reader works flawlessly.
I give it a 4 star because Kingston didn’t bother to make this update (dated July 2008) publicly available. Tech support needs to give you access to their password protected site in order to download it. Kind of a pain but the installation was easy.
