    Hoodman HUSB3 SD/Micro SD Reader

    Hoodman HUSB3 SD/Micro SD Reader

    Product Review (submitted on July 24, 2015):
    I purchased the Lexar USB 3.0 reader and discovered that it would not read my 32GB cards. Lexar's tech suport refused to acknowledge the problem or offer any fix, other than to suggest that I needed to update my drivers. My drivers are all fully up to date. Frustrated with Lexar, I read reviews on Amazon and elsewhere for various USB 3.0 card readers, and decided to give the Hoodman a try.

    The Hoodman is very well built and has a solid feel. The brushed "steel" finish is pretty cool looking. I plugged the Hoodman in and before inserting a card, I went to their website and downloaded the latest firmware update. I had read on line that some people were experiencing problems with the Hoodman until they found the firmware update. There was nothing in the packaging that came with the reader to warn purchasers that they need to do this.

    The firmware update was quick and easy. I then inserted a 32GB CF card and VIOLA! The Hoodman instantly read the card and downloaded all of the files flawlessly - - something I could not get the Lexar to do. The downloads appear to be as fast as I would expect from USB 3.0. The Hoodman handles both CF and SD cards, has a door that covers and protects the internal pins when a CF card is not inserted, and is slim enough to easily fit in a camera bag if you need to travel with your reader. Overall, I am very happy with the Hoodman and would recommend it to anyone looking for a dependable and well built card reader.
