The pop-up de­sign of this reader helps keep its card slots pro­tected when not in use. Per­for­mance is a mixed bag, though: loaded with a fast UHS-1 SDHC card, we achieved re­spectable read and write speeds of 79MB and 74MB per sec­ond re­spec­tively, when trans­fer­ring large video files. UDMA 7 Com­pact Flash video read and write speeds were also healthy at 115MB and 60MB per sec­ond. How­ever, read­ing images from our CF card con­sis­tently re­sulted in a painful sub-3MB-per-sec­ond speed when other read­ers were un­fazed. This is also the least ver­sa­tile de­vice here, and falls short on value.
