Thanks! That site is what convinced me to buy the Hoodman RAW steel. It seems to be a pretty good reader, but my 300X Lexar cards are a bottleneck. I only get 45 MBps with the USB 3.0 Hoodman as opposed to 30 MBps with USB 2.0 readers--only a 1.5X speed increase. I was hoping for magical speed increases.

I have an EliteBook 8540w with latest drivers and the cards starts at about 90MBps...after 30 RAW files (about 15MB-20MB each) if start to drop the reading speed...until it settles at about 20MBps...
