Delkin Dual Slot SD/CF Card Reader Review DDREADER-44

Delkin Devices USB 3.0 Dual Slot Card Reader for CF and SD Cards

Introduction

The Delkin Dual-Slot Card Reader DDREADER-44 features Secure Digital and CompactFlash card slots. It supports CF cards up to UDMA 7 and SD, SDHC and SDXC cards including UHS-I and UHS-II.

The Dual-Slot reader has a plastic case with matte black finish. The card slots are glossy red plastic. A hinged rubber door on the front of the reader covers the card slots. A blue LED on the top of the reader turns on when the reader is plugged in a USB port. The light blinks when a card is being accessed. The reader measures about 2 5/8 by 2 1/4 by 3/4 inches not including the USB cable.

The SD card slot operates smoothly as the card aligns itself and seats snugly in the reader. Inserting a CompactFlash card is somewhat more difficult. The alignment tracks do not begin until about 5/8 inch into the reader and the card can move up and down and side to side before it reaches the tracks Once the card is aligned properly on the tracks it there is little play and the card seats firmly onto the connection pins. Both SD and CF cards insert fully into the reader and the rubber door can be closed with the cards present. The cards are just far apart enough to be able to remove one with both cards in the reader, although fingernails help tremendously.

Delkin Devices USB 3.0 Dual Slot Card Reader Bottom

Rubber feet on the bottom of the reader help to hold it in place on a desk or table. The USB cable is permanently attached and measures about 36 inches in length. The label on the bottom reader indicates it is made in Taiwan.

Performance

The read and write performance of Secure Digital cards is included below. CompactFlash card performance was inconsistent. Several UDMA 7 cards could not sustain full speed during read operations. Delkin confirmed there is a firmware issue with the reader which is being addressed.
