Got my Lexar CFR1 when I picked up a couple extra CF cards from B&H. It was like $10 less with the purchase. Works nicely, but I still use EOS Utility to download most of the time.
I'm on a Mac, OS X 10.9.4. Like most things Mac, plug it in and it works.

I also use this Kingston reader and would recommend it. It works very well with CF, SD and micro SD cards, no issues whatsoever.

Ah, I wasn't aware that this was a potential issue. I'm on Mac - does that make any difference?

I'm also on a Mac, nope doesn't make any difference!

I have a Kingston external card reader and it works fine.

Never had any luck with any of the internal readers no matter what the brand...

I had that one, but it died earlier this year. I replaced it with this one.

It's great, and part of a larger modular reader system. Much faster than the reader I had before.

I had the Kingston and it would never transfer over USB 3 (worked fine over USB 2) on both Mac and Windows, but from the reports above it looks like I was just unlucky.

update your firmware, it might work and it might not. But I had an issue under windows 8 but as soon as I did the firmware update had no issues. Until one it wouldn't read any cards in it. So I got another one. :D

I have a transcend unit and it usually reads about 90-110mb/s with my Lexar 1066x cards. Feels a little slower than it should be? I thought these cards are about 150mb/s?

Not sure if it's the reader or something else. This is with 2 different computers. Though on my current computer only tested through an anker usb3 hub. Maybe I should test it bare.

I have a question. I have a Mac air with USB 3.0
I have a Transcend 3.0 card reader rated at 80-read and 60 write.
I consistently get 88MB/s Read and 75MB/s Write, faster than suggested,
with my Sandisk 32gb Extreme Pro 95MB/s card.
Zero complaints.

My question is would the new UHS-II reader Sandisk reader give me the full 95-R 8-80 W?
I know it WON'T achieve the new 280MB/s speeds as they are dual layers cards.
Any UHS-II reader owners out there care to comment?

Has anyone here had any experience with using the Hoodman USB 3.0 UDMA Reader? I am considering picking one up and although the reviews are good, I trust this forum/community's opinions.
