      First of all, I would've given the Sony XQD card reader 5 stars except for the price. At the time of purchase, it was the only choice.
      To be fair, it IS made very well. It came with an 18" USB3 cable. It has a nice blue activity light that can be seen from most all angles.
      This card reader only reads XQD. Sony, it would've been nice to combine it with a Compact Flash reader. Then, I'd only carry one reader. Now, I have to carry multiple cables to go with my card readers.
      It IS a nice looking card reader.

      Sorry this is long winded but if you plan to use XQD with MAC please read. After speaking with Sony for an hour and a half and Apple for an hour I need to share the following compatibility issue with the MRW-E80. The MRW-E80 is rated at a maximum data speed of 125 MB/s. However on a brand new iMac i7 quad core using the latest OS 10.8.2 the card downloaded at only 4 MB/s. Using this card reader and a Sony 32 GB XQD series H card it took 2 HOURS and 20 minutes to down load to the iMAC.I tried the MRW-E80 on my wifes year old i7 Windows PC and it downloaded at 67 MB/s. Sony tells me they have an accelerated driver for Windows but not for MAC. Apple tells me this is a Sony issue. Note: as a test I transferred the same data that is on the XQD card from a hard drive to the iMAC and it did fine at 190 MB/s. And I also transferred the same data from an SDHC class 10 card with a USB 2.0 card reader and it tested out at 20 MB/s. This reader would likely work much better on a Mac if it had a Thunderbolt connection. 2 hours is crazy slow. I have never rated a product this low before but I feel I need to let you know.

              Comments about Sony XQD Card Reader:

              Finally I broke down and bought this card reader because the direct connection from the camera was not fast enough. The reader works as advertised and noticably faster than the direct connection.

              Important: Connect the reader to a primary USB port! Don't even try a hub or a built-in card reader that also has a USB port.

              This is light weight and does what it's auspoaed to do. Newer cards are shipping with an interface so it is not needed as much any more these days.

                This is very easy to use and is much smaller than a typical high speed reader. I would recommend it to anyone that needs a QXD reader without a doubt. Setup was essentially non-existent.

                                    I use this with our F5/55 cameras in conjunction with XQD cards.

                                    Definitely recommend it.

                                        I purchased this along with the 64GB S Series XQD card. It's small enough to fit into the pocket of your bag or anything really. Lightweight, well constructed, looks sleek and being USB3 its fast! All in all a good product.

                                            Absolutely necessary for reading the Sony XQD memory cards.
                                            A very fast card reader using the USB 3 interface.
                                            Works very well with a high quality, externally powered, USB 3 hub.
