Bad Design - Fragile Pins - Broken After 4 months
This review is from: SanDisk SDDR-289-A20 Sd imagemate usb reader/writer
Pros: USB 3.0, small, Sandisk brand name
Cons: It has a very shallow CF card slot (~0.5") which is a very bad design. When inserting a CF card to this reader one is never sure if the card is straight or not.
Other Thoughts: After coming back from a recent Spain Trip, I was excited to load photos into the computer for processing. It loaded 3 CF cards and on the 4th one, the LED just blinks and nothing was happening. On the close inspection, I saw one of pins on the edge was completely bent. It was purchased in August 2012. Being careful I always insert the CF cards slowly but it did not help with the design of this card reader. The SD cards can be read fine as there are no pins to be bent.
