5.0 out of 5 stars Works great, looks fantastic., 11 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kingston Technology USB 3.0 Media Reader (Personal Computers)
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.

Good review. The info supplied does not mention compact flash but I assume that when you say SD/CF cards you mean SD and compact flash cards? Can you please confirm?

Another Canon user?

Yes I did mean SD and Compact flash, I use compact flash a lot more often than I do SD as the speeds seem a bit better on the 40D and 5DII.

Cheers.

Thanks for the info.

I have 2 machines with USB3 and a laptop with only USB2. can I plug it into USB2? It does say it is USB2 compliant?

Cheers mate.

It does support USB2 yes, all USB3 devices are backwards compatible with USB2, they'll just be a little slower, equal speed to a USB2 device.
