Yea I dont think that list means anything. Based on what criteria did they chose any of those readers? What program did they use for speed tests? What all other readers did they test? Id say that link is pretty much worthless.


Doesnt look like they did any speed tests, and the only thing I can see that awarded the #1 spot was that the card reader handled all listed card formats.

I do very much. Price was right and its way fast enough for me. Plus its compact in size which I prefer.

Actually, all laptops and PCs come with card readers.

Really? I haven't seen a single one that accepts Compact Flash cards.

I used to. That is my G4 Macbook had a PC Card/CardBus slot [6] in the side into which I had installed a Compact Flash reader.

See the link in my signature, a review of different USB 3.0 readers. In terms of speed the readers are almost all the same, you need to choose based on function, price or build quality.


Very good, thanks, I have ordered the Transcend..

Is there such a thing as a USB 3.0 to FW800 cable? That is, a cable with a USB 3.0 connector on one end and a FW800 connector on the other?

Nope. The technologies are entirely different. Plus the USB 3 would be slowed down but the FireWire anyway. Now, there MIGHT be an adapter box, but Ive never seen anything that would do it.

I had a Lexar FW 800 card reader like previously posted but it died and nothing I could do would revive it. It is in a drawer somewhere. Hate to throw $75 away. :-(

Haha ... exact same thing happened to my Lexar FW 800 reader ... and I too saved it in a drawer here somewhere. It was great while it worked... :(

I have a couple of the Lexar Pro FW800 readers but don't use them much I have switched to mostly shooting tethered. I am going to pickup a thunderbolt one if they are ever released.

I will let you know, if they release thunderbolt ones I might part with the FW ones.
