    Fast. Super fast. Aside from the possibly short cable (already mentioned by others) - which isn't actually a problem for my setup but I can understand where it could be - I have no problem with these readers at all. Great price. I bought 3 of them and built a stack, and can ingest ~60Gb of wedding photos in ~30mins tops. Awesome.

    Just bought the Transcend reader.. ( Transcend USB 3.0 Multi Card Reader RDF8 ) It corrupted 4 32gb CF cards that I had to rescue images from.. I updated the firmware with no luck. It takes forever to mount and locks up the system. I have the latest 27inch 3.4 ghz intel core i7 iMac. The camera will also display an error stating that the card is unreadable. I am returning it to B&H.. Not what you want or need if $ is at stake!

      My USB2 card reader was becoming a bottleneck for my offloading so it when it was time for an upgrade, this card reader rose to the top of the list. Works well and fits in small places when not being used.

            This is a wonderful reader, works well with my CF and SD cards, is fast, and looks great too. My only issue is the short USB cable, but it's USB 3.0 and I believe that's a limitation of it.

                        It's always preferable to have proper readers for our front panels but when you're out in the field on a laptop, a less than ideal desktop, or something you aren't prepared for, this Transcend reader does the job. Multi card readers aren't all that special by any means, most will do just fine, but this is the one I always have in my kit. It does the job, it's small, it's LED indicators are bright and obvious, even in sunlight. What more could you want at such a cheap price?

                          Works well. Much faster downloading of photos than I was getting with the built in USB 2.0 reading in my PC. I only gave it 4 stars because the USB cable could be longer to make it easier to work with (my USB 3.0 ports are on the back of my PC).

                                  My old card reader stopped working. I bought this because it was the cheapest usb 3.0 cf card reader. It has a thick cord that seems sturdy. A small led that tells you its on. It works with osx Yosemite. I couldn't ask for anything else.
