C-Fast 2.0 Card Reader

Folks, I can use some advice here. I've been using a SanDisk Extreme PRO CFast 2.0 reader. Although I get it to work 80% of the time, the 20% when it fails to connect to the PC is at times bothersome. When it fails to connect, often times jiggling the cable that is connected to the reader, or removing and reinserting it does the trick. Sometimes, it takes several attempts before the drive appears on the File Explorer.

I don't know if others here have the same problem with this reader. So I'm looking for a much more reliable (or the most reliable) reader on the market. The Angelbird brand seem to resonate as a solid manufacturer of C-Fast and hence assume that goes with their reader. But I have no idea. I've never used their product. If you have their reader, what's your experience? Here's the link of the reader I'm looking at B&H.

I'm also all ears for any other ones that is stable; or for any suggestion how any of you may have fixed your SanDisk reader. Thanks.

Ellory, I think Newsshooter had a test of the Angelbird reader and it got high praise.
