I first used this card reader at a Photography & Photoshop workshop with author/photographer Kevin Ames. This is what the pros use and for good reason. If you shoot with a 2 or 4-gigabyte card and own a Mac or a PC with firewire this card is a huge time saver. I moved 2.13 gigs of RAW images from SanDisk 4Gig CF card, to a G5 Imac in my home in just under 4 minutes. When I tried the same transfer over a USB2 SanDisk ImageMate 6 in 1 reader the transfer took over 20 minutes. The Lexar will does the same job in less than 1/5 the time and is much more reliable. If you shoot often or shoot large files, it’s worth paying a little more to get a great tool for the job. This is one of the few tech items that does exactly what its supposed to do. I recommend it without reservation.

This CF Card Reader is smaller and faster than the Firewire model it replaced. I'd recommend it highly.
