Have tried this reader with a range of cards from elderly Compact Flash cards (and a CF microdrive!) to a more recent CF card, SD, SDHC, SDXC, SD micro - every card I've had since I started buying them over ten years ago. All went in and came out without much force being required (enough so I felt comfortable it was properly in place, not enough to make me concerned about bending the pins). Great download speed with usb3 hub and not at all bad even plugged into a usb2 socket. Easy to tell when the computer is accessing the card from the flashing red logo on top, so no problem with accidentally unplugging it in midstream. The logo lights up when a card is inserted, which also helps confirm the card is correctly positioned. Lead that came with it was plenty long enough to attach to the usb3 ports at back of computer and bring the reader over to the keyboard. The various slots are clearly labelled.
Looks and feels robust enough to sit in my camera bag without coming to harm. It is light, but then I haven't had a card reader heavy enough to push a card into without using both hands.

This Kingston product can also be verified using Kingston's online Product verification. It comes under "Flash Memory Verification" and all the details needed are on the label stuck on the back of the packaging.

[...]

Takes less than 1 minute to get e-mail verification from Kingston once submitted.

The USB3 lead for this item is 111cm long tip to tip. I found it plenty long enough to reach from back of base unit to my desktop. Would not reach desktop at opposite side of base unit though.

Kingston logo lights up when card is inserted and flashes when card is being accessed.

Only used it for micro SDHC cards so far. Simple slide in pull out as opposed to having to press and release on insertion and removal like my older Kingston reader.

Copied 7.83 GB of Mobius dash cam video from SanDisk SDSDQM-032G-B35 32GB Class 4 micro SDHC Card to PC in 7 min 13 sec on USB2 card reader and USB2 port.
Copied exactly same visdeo files through this USB3 card reader and USB3 port in 6 min. A wee bit quicker.

Copied 7.46GB of Mobius dash cam video from Samsung 32GB Class 10 UHS-1 Grade 1 48MB/s Micro SDHC Plus Memory Card to PC 6 min 58 sec on USB2 card reader and USB2 port.
Copied exactly same video files through this USB3 card reader and USB3 port in 1 min 57 sec. Suitably impressed! (Had to check this again as so quick in comparison to SanDisk results.)

Much neater, tidier and better looking than my older Kingston card reader too. A worthy successor.

This card reader works as it should, I have used it and I'm very happy with it. Reads all major cards and has a neat manufacturers lable thats a light and it flashes when in use, so you know its working.

Plug in and play with no problems on windows 7, also has non slip rubber strips on bottom to keep it from moving around. Looks well made & does the job!

I have no issues recommending it.

Ordered an internal USB 3.0 card reader, which didn't work ! so sent it back and decided to order this, although external, as it has such good reviews and I'm glad I did as I'm not disappointed.
As it's a USB 3.0 reader, you will need a USB 3.0 port in your computer, for it work to it's full capacity.
I have a 32 GB class 10 SDHC which I fill with photos and HD videos and 32 GB MS Pro Duo, which I also fill , this unit can read them both as well as other cards and because it's a USB 3.0 reader in a USB 3.0 port, it uploads the files off these cards at lightening speed, far, far quicker than my USB 2.0 card reader in my other computer.
This is well made and strong and fits nicely on top of my computer, which is also black so looks nice too. When you put a card into it, the Kingston logo lights up red, to let you know that it can see your card. I have fixed it to the top of the computer with BluTack so I don't have to hold it still when I insert a card. The lead is 3ft and is plenty long enough to put the unit in front of my computer if I so wish.
Also because it's external, I can move it on to another computer with ease and take it to a relatives house to download their camera cards for them if needed.

I can't fault this product at all, works as advertised and gives full USB-3 speed, made my high speed compactflash cards extremely responsive and sped-up my workflow and productivity, I can now edit RAW files and export to storage straight from the SD/CF cards rather than copy them to my local drive first, which saves a step and more importantly, time. It seems to be built well, brushed aluminium on the top and plastic everywhere else, looks the part and the Kingston logo glows when a card is in the reader, and flashes when the cards are in use, it's a little on the light side so you'd have to hold the device while putting a card in otherwise it will push away, I fixed this by using two small blobs of blu-tack on the underside and I no longer have this problem. I can't fault the product at all, and it would be very unfair to give it 4 stars for it being light, they're not going to make a media reader out of lead, and it would be very impractical in that case.

Well done Kingston, way ahead of the competition with this media reader, Lexar would be jealous.
