As you can see, after hitting 64KB block size, the write speeds leveled off at about 38.5 MB/s and the reads were about 64.5 MB/s. In windows, I copied a 25 GB ISO file to the card and averaged 37.9 MB/s for the entire copy. I am truly impressed.

Pros: Lots of options for reading cards, including the new SDHC which is one reason for choosing this one. Simple to plug in and start using.
Cons: Thought I would save some money and I bought an Open-Box... bad idea! This device would mount and briefly read cards, but then windows would pop up an error saying that the device has malfunctioned and that it was disabling the entire device. I tried the card reader on 4 different machines, some running Vista and some running Windows 7. I even tried using USB2 and USB3 ports. Same thing happens on all machines.
Other Thoughts: I may buy another one to see if this was just a fluke. I really like the number of card types it can read. It was also the only SDHC reader in a drive-bay format that NewEgg had at the time.READ FULL REVIEW
