    Xcellon CR-CFA312 reviews

    CFast 2.0 USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C Card Reader is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small and reliable This reader was definitely designed to travel. It's small enough to fit into any bag or even your pocket. It's built from a hard plastic, which makes it light, but I was never afraid that it would break under normal wear and tear. The ingest speeds were incredible and always consistent. My only issue with this is that I wish it had a SD slot built into it also, just to expand its usability. All in all this is a great little unit and if you are shooting Cfast 2 a necessity for backing up in the field.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very good - The most annoying thing that the card should be inserted upside down. You can flip cardreader, but then led indicator is not visible. - Very light, feels cheap, need a rubberized base. - I receive two usb-c to usb-c cables and had to buy usb-a to usb-c. + The transfer speed is very good, everything works great.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast transfers at an unbeatable price Since moving to a Raw workflow, I've used a bunch of Cfast 2.0 readers. A lot of them were rushed to market and aren't as solid as they could be. The Xcellon has performed flawlessly, always recognizing cards. It gives the super-fasting transfer speed listed on the box and hasn't let me down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just works & great price I have this as well as a sandisk reader. This has the same quality but for less money. Has been reliable and fast, also has usb c and regular usb for options. It works, it's durable, and it's affordable - what more can you ask for?!
    Date published: 2018-09-22
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for $35 Feels like quite solid build quality. Reads really fast and GREAT that it's USB-C. Also comes with a cable that attaches to standard USB ports. I've only had it a week, and looks/functions great! No problems yet.
    Date published: 2018-09-05
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER COMPACT! This reader is super small and it comes with the necessary cables too. Thats one less thing I have to worry about. Speeds are excellent. So far so good!
