    Hey, having a difficult time finding many reviews on this product here:

    https://www.amazon.com/Sonnet-SF3-Mi...7374494&sr=8-1

    Anyone using this dual card reader?


    Like it, hate it?

    I bought one only to return it. Heavy, big power brick. My USB-C reader got faster speed from a single card, but two cards ran about 330MB/s each.

    I use a MacBook Pro to manage offloads. To use old-style USB readers I needed a TB3 dock, which resulted in an extra bit of clutter.

    With two of these devices I can offload four cards at a time without having five devices jumbled next to my computer.

    Ive been using it since it came out and it offloads 2 cards simultaneously at about 900 MB/s to an iMac Pro. Love it but also have a Red USB-C one for mobile work.

    Got one immediately to offload 2 mags at once to iMac Pro and gTech studio XL Raids. Excellent performance.
