    I use this card reader to import footage off my P2 cards taken with my HPX170. Much like how I can't rave enough about the camera, I can't rave enough about this card reader.

    I work off of a Macbook Pro Unibody from October of 2008 and for the longest time, I like everyone else, was stuck with the Duel Adapter which created and endless stream of Kernel Panics and headaches. This card reader just works. Every time. Even though it's plastic, it feels like a tank and from Panasonic, I would expect nothing less.

    The only reason that I am giving this four and not five stars is because of the USB 2.0 interface. Don't get me wrong, this reader is FAST! By having independent signal and power interfaces you get the full power out of USB 2.0, but with USB 3.0 here, and that being backward compatible, I don't see why it wasn't used here. I suppose it's the same excuse for Macs not having Blu-Ray. Oh well, I'll deal with a smile :)

    Just wish I had it two years ago! GET THIS READER!

    2 1/2 stars would be more appropriate. Dual Systems worked out a way to ingest p2 footage into your mac a couple of years ago, but since the mac os 10.6 release, the Duo-Adapter (which worked in the 34 pin slot of mac book pros) will no longer work. So, for 3x the cost of a Duo-Adapter, you can finely now buy the Panasonic. My biggest gripe about this product is the fact that it uses 2 usb slots. I don't know about you, but my macbook pro only has 2 usb slots. Oh, sure, you can use a powered hub, but you better get used to unplugging and plugging it all back in when you want to ingest.... A usb and a power cable would have been better for my application. AND what about the transfer speeds? USB 2.0? get real, Panasonic! I know you want me to buy your fancy-dancy 5 slot P2 reader, but [$]?? Yikes!

            It's the basic reader for all of the OG P2 cards that are based off of PCMCIA cards. Unless you want to read it off camera and burn battery and take up space on your desk, or unless you want to purchase a more expensive one.

            THIS GUY IS IT.

            Not the fastest, and not the most convenient, but it works as advertised for the price. Built out of plastic, but very robust.

                On or OSX and Win 7 Computers no drivers are required to use. USB 3 provides speed and power for easy in the field data transfers. This unit is highly portable, well built although a tad pricey.
                We send these out with P2 Cams so folks can access footage in the field.

                  This memory card drive works good but is rather slow and was expensive for a card reader. It seems that anything associated with P2 cards is expensive as compared to other formats.

                              I purchased this so that I don't have to endure any risks with connecting the AG-HPX170 to my computer. It works as intended. I wish that Panasonic made a card reader than has two-slots. I believe the next one up is a 5 card reader and it's quite expensive. If you're using Mountain Lion on your Mac, make sure to update the drivers to the computer to read the P2 cards.

                              Does what it says. I finally broke down and bought one. Download speeds much faster. Kinda expensive for a card reader though.

                              I use this P2 card reader to ingest footage into the computer for editing. I had been using firewire from my HVX and expected this USB device to be slower than the firewire, but it is in fact faster. So far it has worked beautifully. I only gave it 4 stars because it seems overpriced for what it is.

                                I put off buying this reader for long enough; at over $ I thought it was a bit much for what it is...a card reader. But I could only hold out so long, and, as it happens, it's also the most affordable way to offload P2 footage (other than through the camera, which I had done for far too long). The workflow has proven to be more efficient, the transfer times are faster, and now I can't help but thinking I was being too stubbron for too long.

                                Works great. out in the field when my 128gb of p2 cards are full, I can load my footage to my HD while my camera is still rolling.
