Which USB 3.0 CF card is highly recommended?
I see the Lexar and Delkin versions show up a lot of Google, but I was interested to see what else is out there and what is recommended.

I dont think anyone really knows yet. There arent many on the market, only three or four at the moment. They are way over priced right now. And no one has really done any comparison testing of all that are out. Personally it something Im holding off for and waiting for the market of them to stabilize.

I use the Delkin USB 3.0 card reader, and it works great with my 90Mb/sec CF cards. I haven't done any hard measurements, but it feels like copying from one hard drive to another.

first I had the Pretec....got rid of it due to very poor design
then I got the Delkin...works well and does a wide variety of cards
but I settled on the Lexar USB 3 unit that has great design and does CF and SD
