2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: None

Cons: very often asks to format my CF cards

Other Thoughts: When it works I dodn't see any difference between my USB2 reader card and this one which is USB3 (I put it in the usb 3 slot in my computer). Often this reader is asking me to format my cards or even doesn't see them at all, though when I put them in my old reader everything works OK. for me it is a junk, I gave it 2 stars because it is still working sometimes.

4 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: Speedy transfers. Up to 75 MB/sec with UHS-I enabled SDHC cards.

Cons: Pretty useless form factor. Hard to hold and use.

Other Thoughts: Cheaper alternatives exist that make more sense, particularly the Pretec P240 here on Newegg.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: USB 3.0

Cons: Not durable. Compact Flash CF/MD pin bent after 3-4 uses, making it useless for my needs.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Had no chance to determine

Cons: There is NO way to mount it. All surfaces are rounded and it must be held to insert and eject connections. I suppose you could carry it in your pocket. I sent it right back without use. Very poor physical design.
