Hey gang- any thoughts on the various CFast readers out there? I found through trial and error that not all USB3 CF readers were created equal and I'd like to cut down on buying the same gear (only different) this time around.

Hi Kevin

 

Are you looking for reference on CFast readers, that's right ???

I can say, I have used two models.

1- Lexar CR1: is the version USB-3, solid, fast, reliable, expandable addition to the complete solution of Lexar

2- Atoms CFast Reader, is a good choice but as backup unit, any moment, a backUp reader, can save your live.

 

 

My 2 cents, I hope to help you

Since CFast cards essentially use the SATA interface, I guess the fastest way to get stuff off them would be to find an E-SATA adaptor.
