Raw Steel
USB 3.0 UDMA Card Reader

Mac / PC / USB 3.0
Up to 10X Faster!
Enjoy time saving 5 Gbps data transfers of CompactFlash or SD cards with the new ruggedized Raw Steel SuperSpeed USB 3.0 UDMA card reader from Hoodman. Downloads are up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 specs.
Pin Guard Protected
Hoodman built the new reader into a ruggedized metal housing and added a new concept to readers called "Pin Guard". Pin Guard is an innovative drop down door that keeps reader pins protected until a CompactFlash card is inserted into the reader.
Durable Construction
The well thought out detachable 36-inch USB 3.0 cable is plenty long enough to reach behind towers and still find a home on a desktop. Reinforced cable inputs, metal housing and "Pin Guard" all work together to yield the most durable card reader made.
