Excellent item

Compatability

This card reader is for machines with the USB 3.0 standard. It will work on older USB 2.0 machines but you don't get the speed.

Construction.
The unit is well made and the supplied USB lead is a USB 3.0 one. My cards fit in it and it all feels solid. I have had no read errors from this reader after downloading 15 cards.

Set up.
This item is fully plug and play so nothing to do, just plug it in and Windows sorts it out (it works like this on Windows 7, 8 and 8.1).

In use.
It reads pretty much all of todays cards. I use CF and SDHC cards in my camera and it reads theses much faster than my older USB 2.0 reader. A whole 16Gbh card now downloads to my computer in under 60 seconds - with y old reader it was around 4 minutes.

Overall.
This is a nice fast reader that takes advantage of the faster USB 3.0 standard.

Does exactly what you expect it to do! USB 3.0 speeds is very useful, though must be plugged into a usb 3.0 port, so older computers might not be able to use the full of this. The Kingston light is only on when a card is inserted in case anyone was wondering. One small thing though, It isn't that "stable" it sometimes maybe lean backwards depending on how you have it set up, my cables run under my pc case so this may have caused it. However it can easily be solved with some blu-tack.

It's pretty small and lightweight but effective in what it does. Speed is pretty consistent. I used an old card reader for years before purchase. I noticed the vast improvement in speed on image transfer with this reader. Recommended.
