Thread: Recommend good card reader?

  1. #1

    Default Recommend good card reader?

    Need a nice, external card reader which can take CF I/II/SD etc (7 or 8-in-1). Needs to be USB 2.0, is of a reliable brand and make (won't risk damaging my CF cards on an inferior product), is compatible across any platform and with Lexar WA cards. Please provide model/make, place of purchase and price, if possible. Thanks!

    BTW, I dont' mind paying more for a good quality and reliable product (after all, why risk a $400 CF card on something of suspect quality, right?)

    challenger superstore at funan got a lot of brands available. from no-name brands (ard $40+) from china to branded ones like iomega ($70+). either there, or can try places like memory world, chamoxa (i think dats how the shop's name is spelt) or PC mart - all at funan. walk ard and compare prices?

    i got mine from mscolor. winward 8-in-1 USB 2.0, early this year. cost abt $75.

    Try Belkin, a USB 2.0 multi-card reader at about $50 plus. I got one recently from SLS. Fast and reliable.

    I got mine from flashcard-bestbuy.com. cheap and fast
    Only complain is, it is a bit big....maybe due to its built-in with usb cable.

    Nowadays those taiwanese readers like dunno what Silicon Power, Pocket Reader and $20-30 stuff are quite fast. I could get in the region of 6MB/s from my USB 2.0 (brand : Pocket reader 8-in-1) with Lexar 80X 2nd edition. The new ones are fast, i have an older USB 2.0 (brand : Pocket Read also) one which goes only like 3MB/s with the same card.

    I suppose the $70 readers like Sandisk Image mate would be faster, up to the individual lor. For download to notebook and image tank the fast reader also no use as there is a limit for 5400rpm HDDs.

    ditto. my not-so-cheap 6-in-1 cost me 50 bucks probably a year back, but on the bright side, it's power by a SMSc chipset. i dont look for consumer branding, i look at the chipset.
