    Hoodman HUSB3 SD/Micro SD Reader

    Hoodman HUSB3 SD/Micro SD Reader

    Product Review (submitted on July 24, 2015):
    This is my first Hoodman brand product. I bought it after an extensive research that included USB-3 products from my top three brands: SanDisk, Lexar and Sonnet. I eliminated all three brands, as two of them included some negative aspects and the manufacturer of the third one did not provide me with the satisfactory answer to my pre-sale technical question.

    There is not much that can be said about a product as simple as a dual (CF/SD) memory card reader. This one is USB-3 / UDMA compliant, includes 3-foot long cable with regular plugs (no mini or micro) on both ends. The CF socket is equipped with a drop-out door that opens automatically when a CF card is inserted. That prevents dirt from getting in and protects delicate contact pins. A card can be inserted as far as about 3/4 of an inch, so there is no worry about bad contact or inaccurate angle of insertion (cards in some other brands of readers can only be inserted by about 1/4 of an inch). The design is rugged and robust, with the aluminum body. Its size is bigger than the size of other brands' comparable products, but I do not care.

    I am using this reader with my Retina MacBook Pro. The reader works out-of-the-box with no problem whatsoever. I have no way of checking the exact speed of read/write, but the gain in speed over my old USB-2 and FireWire readers is significant. I just downloaded a firmware update from and it should give me even more speed with my future faster cards.

    So, for now, total satisfaction. I am adding Hoodman to my private list of top manufacturers in this category. I highly recommend the Hoodman RAW USB-3 dual card reader.
