    USB 3.0 CF Card Readers?

    Has anyone any experience with USB 3.0 card readers?

    Is there a clear choice as to which brand to use?

    Any problems with use on a Mac? (The B&H website has a few complaints about Macs not "seeing" the Hoodman reader.)

    I think mine is a Lexar . More the problem I have had is problems with cables and USB 3. Tethering and card reader I have had some connect issues.

    I use a couple of Lexar USB 3.0 Dual Slot readers. Bought them from Amazon.com. They're faster than any readers (FireWire 800, USB 2.0) I've used before with my MacBook Pro and Mac Pro (although the Mac Pro doesn't have USB 3.0 ). Blazing fast!!

    I also bought short (1') USB 3.0 cables separately for them since I don't like carrying the long cables that are supplied with the reader.

    I keep one in my computer bag and one in my desk drawer.

    Bought one of those Lexar USB 3 Dual Slot readers. Then I bought a second one. Think they were $37 and free shipping from B&H.
