    Concerned about compatibility

    General impression of the reader is good.

    Just tested the card reader and it appears to be noticeably faster than my UDMA USB CF card reader.

    General impression of the reader is good.

    Just tested the card reader and it appears to be noticeably faster than my UDMA USB CF card reader.

    ISSUES:
    Sandisk ULTRA (new version) does not READ... I will elaborate.

    I have alot of CF cards from Sandisk to Transcend. From my older 2nd gen ULTRA 2, ExtremeIII, Ducati edition, Sandisk Extreme the reader seems to be a screamer in performance. I'm not certain the issue but I have 4x 16 GB ULTRA 30MB/s cards. 2 of them purchased from B&H and the other two came from another large reputable company. The 2 cards from B&H work perfectly with the Delkin reader. My Other Sandisk Ultra cards DO NOT even get detected from the card reader. Please note the 2 "undetected" Sandisk cards work perfectly with my other USB2 CF card readers.

    I tested the Delkin with my other USB2 ports on my new computer with no success. I was concerned it was a USB3 port issue. I even put the reader on my other 2 older computers (only USB2 ports)with the same issues.

    I think this maybe an isolated incident with the batch of sandisk cards I bought.

    I've thoroughly and strategically looked at the problem I am having and there are two variables. The newest variable in my setup is this card reader.

    I guess this is more of an FYI heads up write up. I'm torn in how to review this product. Since its substantially cheaper than my older firewire sandisk reader I wont complain. 4 stars for me because I cannot determine 100% that its the Delkin product.

    The 1st time I downloaded immages from my new camera (Canon 7d) I noticed that many jpeg images were over lapping each other. My new camera, my new PC? I started trouble shooting right away. taking pictures with various cameras, various brand name memory cards. trying various USB ports in my PC (both USB 2 & 3) Still the same thing. Then I took the same CF cards and put them in both a USB2 Delkin and USB2 SanDisk readers and like Magic the problem was gone. I proved the problem was with the new USB3 card reader. I sent Delkin a E-Mail detailing the problem and what I did to prove to myself that the problem is in the new USB3 reader. Delking sent me back a RMA# and instructions to send the device back, and promised to send me a NEW replacement. I haven't got the new one yet, but when I do I promise to let you know the results.

    So far no problems, it works perfectly fine. The manufacture of it seems cheesy, but despite that it works fine no problems just plug in and its good to go.

          Comments about Delkin Devices USB 3.0 Universal Memory Card Reader:

          This card reader corrupt files transfered from multiple CF cards from mulitple cameras. I didn't realize it until too late because the .jpgs were previewing fine. Once I saw the high res RAW files uploaded in Lightroom or Photoshop I finally saw the problem. I lost really important files from weddings and paid projects. I am beyond frustrated, and can't beleive a card reader could do so much damage.

              Fast USB3 card reader with excellent transfer speed. Has a tight close tolerance fit for memory cards easily guiding them into their slot smoothly and making a sure electrical contact every time. Previous card readers were sloppy in their fit, scratched my SD cards and made poor connection. Not this Delkin, it does what it's supposed to do and well.

                        This Delkin card reader worked perfect right out of the box as expected. My Mac Pro has a Sonnet USB 3.0 PCIE card installed so transfer times are extremely fast. The one thing about the Delkin card reader is that is comes with a three foot USB 3.0 cable instead of the usual six inch, so using it on my desktop I don't have to set it on the floor while transferring files.

                                I always had difficulty with this unit from the beginning due to very cheap construction. It was difficult to get the card inserted properly and even to keep the connection in the rear of the unit to stay in.

                                DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. YOU WILL JUST HAVE TO BUY ANOTHER UNIT IN A FEW MONTHS IF YOU USE IT MUCH.

                                    Use it instead my Lexar Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader, because that is unreliable. I am happy I got it.

                                              Exactly what you need from a multi-card reader; reliable and affordable. I use this when travelling and need something small and light-weight.

                                              It comes with a USB 3 cable (Cable A to Micro B M-M), which i've yet to find easily in-store. So keep track of your cable, as you might be stuck without one on the road if its misplaced!

                                                Use it to download images to my laptop, usually while traveling.
                                                Much faster than USB 2, even though my old laptop is 4 years old and I'm using the USB 2 ports. Seems to be well built, I really like it.

                                                      I bought one of these at the B&H store in New York. I plan to use it that night opened it and threw away the packaging. It would not read a CF card. I contacted the manufacturer and they would not exchange it without original packaging. Total waste of $.

                                                        Can be used with different type of cards and fast USB 3.0. It's not firewire but for this price, it's worth it.

                                                          This reader worked perfectly when using my Sandisk Extreme Pro cards, but I recently purchased a Lexar 1000x card and found this reader would not work with the Delkin. Delkin customer service was responsive and quickly provided me with a firmware update, but that didn't help. They have promised to look into the matter - but for those of us needing to upload images now, that doesn't really help. I purchased a Lexar USB 3.0 reader, which solved the problem. The Lexar reader is for SD and CF cards only, but the difference in build quality and performance makes the slightly higher price more than worth it.
