Hmmm, I've got one that's really, really good. Let me go and check it's name.....

....Oh, yeah - Lexar USB3:-)

Which is why I bought one but little did I know that there are 2 versions... 307 is UDMA7, the 300 is not(but can be through firmware) even though I bought it not many moons ago it was not UDMA7... . It seems to be cards which are 800x or faster and so far I have only heard complaints from people shooting 1Dx or 7DII and only Lexar cards.

-2 on this Lexar Reader in terms of reliability, at least in my case. It stopped working after about 6 months. The flip up thingy seems pretty cool, but I believe this creates an inherent weakness at the USB connector in the reader. I've had a cheapo reader which I simply slide the CF card. I don't remember the off brand, the other CF card reader mention in this thread seems more reliable.

Kingston branded readers serve us quite well
