2 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: It reads slightly faster than my other USB3 readers.

Cons: The device is advertised as supporting MSPRO-HG Duo 8-bit mode. However, it does NOT. 8-bit mode for PRO-HG memory sticks requires parallel processing and 14-pins to make contact with the memory stick; this device has only 10 pins. So, even if the device could understand the protocol, it is physically incapable of reading at 8-bits in parallel. R/W speeds will never get above 19/15 for PRO-HG or PRO-HG HX memory sticks.

The StarTech website says it may update the specs without warning... well, they surely did, but they're still advertising this device as supporting the MSPRO-HG protocol which is patently false advertising.

Worse still... the mount inside the case was crooked. At least assembly the thing properly, how hard is that to do?

If I had the time, I sue StarTech for false advertising out of spite.

Other Thoughts: It didn't outright explode when I plugged it into my computer.

5 out of 5 eggsSuper fast!

Pros: This card reader is super fast, I have used it with a Polaroid 64GB Class10 U1 memory card, that it's top reading/writing speed is 35 MB/s, with this reader it the transfere speed went to ~90 MB/s. I couldn't believe it. but is true.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I totally recomend this.

1 out of 5 eggsNo X-D ?

Pros: None for me.J

Cons: Doesn"t work for me. My fault. Just thought any card reader would work on a most popular X-D card.Should have stuck with Rosewill.

5 out of 5 eggsVersatile little thing.

Pros: Very fast USB 3 speeds, read my SDHC card flawlessly without any hiccups just as advertised. Also has two other slots for microSD and Memory Stick which will come in handy later. Other great thing about this is that it doubles as a USB flash drive! I loaded Windows into an SD card and booted from it just you would a dedicated thumb drive.

Two devices in one for a great price I love it.

Cons: Doesn't accept CF cards.

Other Thoughts: The card sticks out very far when inserted. Not a flaw but be gentle when handling.
