Connection problems on a laptop

When I connect to my Surface Book laptop the connection doesn't remain steady, turning off and on randomly. I don't seem to have the same problem when connected to my desk top computer. It transfers the files as advertised and is compact and easy to use.

Card not secured

I had the same issue as another reviewer - the card can not be read unless I hold the card in with my finger. It worked for a about 6 months, but now it's effectively useless.

Pleased with the Quality and performance

I am pleased. This is a solid and well constructed reader. No issue with heat and performs well.

ProGrade is faster for writes

By Bruce
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-01-19

Write speed is 10 MB/s slower with the Lexar as compared to the ProGrade CFexpress card reader. The ProGrade also reads SD type cards and it has a magnetic base which is great for attaching it to the side of a tower PC or workstation.

Lasted One Week

This reader worked well for three uploads from a same-brand (Lexar) CF Express card. Then it became inoperative. Card will not lock in place or mount to my iMac. I tried with two other cards, to ensure the problem was with the reader - same results. It's now a $60 paperweight.
