      I've only used the reader for SD cards so far, but it's quick to connect and be recognized, and the transfer speeds are fast. I especially like the functional design of the reader. It is possible to plug in all kinds of cards simultaneously, including micro versions without an adapter, and the thing is very small and thin, fitting perfectly in my camera bag. It has a shiny surface and comes with some protective plastic stuck to it, which is nice to keep it scratch free. The opposite side is more matte and has four little rubber feet, which seem very solid. It uses a standard mini-USB port to connect, which matches that of my camera, so I don't have to carry any extra cords.

      The only things I'd think could be improved would be to make it USB3, but present cards don't get too close to the USB2 data rate cap anyway.

      Disappointing product

      We bought this for our broadcast journalism class. For some reason, they will not read our SD cards.

          Used to transfer images from Nikon 300S and Nikon 7800. Simpl plug and play, very fast and inexpensive. What is not to like. It replaces a Sandisk that died. Did not realize it did not handle CF cards, my fault, did not read carefully but does not mean it does not work perfectly.B&H ships rapidly and securely.

              I just bought this because my old Sandisk Multi card reader recently died. i expected more cheapo quality with slow speed, but NO. Its reasonable quality and packaging with average or fast speed. Im just happy with what i got for this value.

                    Used with SDHC cards. It works. It is cheap. It feels cheap... when you put a card in you just put it in, and hope it's in... there's no sensory feedback like when you put a card into a computer or camera... BUT, it works.

                    My Windows environment seemed a little unhappy with it... BUT, it works. I figured I should reboot the system after using it... BUT, it works.

                    Backup system or emergency use may be the preferred use for this product.

                        Perfect for reading cards. The 5d is pretty slow so this is darn fast. Although not USB 3, still does the job really well. Cable is a little long. I prefer a short cable so it is easier to manage.

                              Reading my cards great (I've only tried the CF cards so far). Couple of times my computer has thought it was disconnected without ejecting even though it was plugged in which was weird. not sure if it jiggled out of the usb port or something?

                                  We bought this for our broadcast journalism class. For some reason, they will not read our SD cards.

                                    Use to read CF and SD cards into computers without dedicated card-readers built-in. Faster than reading from the camera, and less fussy. Obviously limited to USB2 speeds, which some built-in readers are not.

                                    What's often not obvious in the catalog is the depth (or lack therof) of slots on readers - some are very shallow, and can lead to bent pins. This one is pretty decent - and a deep slot means the pins are lined up well by the time they connect. Mostly an issue for CF cards.

                                    Included recovery software I had not even noticed (or wasn't mentioned, I don't recall) was actually able to recover a few images we figured were all lost (many others were lost, but any is better than none) when a CF card died partway through photographing an event.

                                    The fact that the cable is a Mini-USB plug-in means you can use whatever length cable you like, and the reader at least won't fail due to the cable going bad. Can't really comment on long-term reliability yet, but it appears to be of decent build quality.

                                      I use the Multi-Card Read P8 to transfer pictures from CF Cards to my Laptop Computer [Windows 7]. I find it much more convenient to do it this way than from my Camera.
                                      It works well and I am very satisfied up to now.

                                          I am so glad that I got this. It makes it so much easier to hook this up than plugging in my camera. I had a reader before but not for a CF card, so this was a must have. It's been working just fine and is very fast.
