Transcend CFast 2.0 Card Reader Review

Just as CFast 2.0 memory cards were not needed in DSLR kits prior to the introduction of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II, CFast 2.0 memory card readers were also not needed. While a camera can be directly connected to a computer for image uploads, I always use external card readers with one kept in my studio and another in my laptop case. So, along with a CFast 2.0 Memory Card, Transcend sent me a CFast 2.0 memory card reader to review.

As are most memory card readers, the Transcend CFast 2.0 memory card reader is a simple device. A CFast 2.0, 1.1, or 1.0 memory card plugs into one side and a standard USB cable (included) plugs into the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port other side. Attach the reader with card inserted into a computer and the memory card mounts as another drive on the system, ready for access by your favorite image transfer software.

Transcend CFast 2.0 Memory Card and Reader

This reader is tiny (2.66 x 1.77 x 0.60" / 67.6 x 45.0 x 15.2mm), weighs almost nothing (0.91 oz / 26g), is attractive in appearance (glossy black) and is competitive in price. The memory card slot is oriented (and keyed) for label-up card insertion of same-brand cards (opposite of SanDisk) with adequate slot depth to insure that the card is properly aligned. This simple device has proven very reliable – and very useful. It does its job and stays out of the way.
