Those reviews are not legit... nothing other than marketing commercial.

Seriously... move up to USB 3.0. I thought my old firewire was fast. 3.0 left it in the dust.

I have been using the Delkins USB 3 reader for more than a year. Tens of thousands of images downloaded from several mfg brand cards with no problems encountered. I have a Express card for the laptop and a add on card for me PC.

One particular tournament we had 8 photogs shooting over 60 softball games. All images were transferred to a USB 3 hdd via the delkins reader. I couldn't be happier.

I use all kinds and I have yet to have an issue. From cheap $5 to $50 ones and they all have no problems pulling data off the card.
The only time I did have a problem was with one that had a loose USB connection (just worn out from the years of usage) and a lot of files kept getting corrupted.

Here is an example of my Delkins USB 3 Card Reader in action transferring 1071 RAW images from a Transcend 400x CF card to a USB 3 hdd docking station with a 1.5 TB 7200 rpm Hitachi hdd.

It sure shortens my download times when dealing with a lot of images.

I have a firewire 800 card reader, all metal casing. I love it, super fast and very durable. How many of you have a multicard reader and why? I have a cf reader, and a SD reader for the rare occasion that I shoot onto a SD card.

No issues with it what so ever. its great i can read sd and compact flash at the same time.

I have no intentions on upgrading any time soon :)

Do you know that the new Transcend USB 3.0 card reader's firmware can be upgraded?

I use aft ex-3u ( http://www.atechflash.​com/kiosk_aft-ex3u.html (external link) ) in gf and I's computers, I like it. If I had to pay for my card readers though I'd probably get an internal USB-3 one...I like internal ones much better than external for some reason, I guess i'm silly OCD or somethin'. :)

I use a Delkin PCI-E Expresscard 54 reader that fits flush into the side of my laptop.

I use it because it is FAST, cheap, and very convenient.

They are discontinued now but are available for about $60 if you search them out: http://www.vistek.ca …ompact-flash-adapter.aspx (external link)

I use the old Lexar Firewire 800 reader (external link) - now discontinued which is a shame. It's blazing fast when you have to shift 2000 files and still works just fine with OS 10.7.3.

I've not seen anything as good. These are rarer than hen's teeth second hand so nobody is giving them up.

Not trying to hijack the thread but this is closely related. Am I right in thinking that I can install a USB 3 card in my old PC? It's a generic intel Core 2, ~ 3-4 years old. USB 2 at this time.
