Kingston USB 3.0 Media Reader
Kingston’s offering is the only reader that gave Lexar’s uberexpensive Professional Workflow a run for its money in the speed stakes, maxing out just 4MB per second slower at an impressive 130MB per second when reading video files from a CF card. It also blitzed our remaining CF benchmarks and continued to set sensational SD speeds, topping the video file rankings with 88MB-persecond read and 76MB-per-second write rates. It turned in a sterling performance with smaller image files, too. Factor its support for other card formats and this card reader is a winner.
